Monday Musings

1. It's Monday, and I'm actually glad to be back in the routine of things.  I had a pretty rotten attitude all weekend, and I think a return to normalcy is just what I needed....that and a good, solid quiet time.

2. Please don't think my poor attitude (mentioned above) is an indication of a productive weekend.  I didn't do a single thing to the house or to prepare for Ellie...other than shop.  But that counts, right?

3. What did a I buy, you ask.  Well, lots of girlie winter clothes for next year. Oh, I can't forget that I scored this year's Easter Dress too. 

4. I could lie and tell you that I'll post pictures, but we all know that's not true. You'll just have to wait to and see. 

5. I know you're dying to know my opinion on Miss America...ok, you're not but I'm  going to tell you anyway.  I didn't love the winner, I thought talent was a little rough, and poor Miss Iowa totally messed up the majauna question. To quote: "I think majauana should be used for recreation puporses only."  HAHAHA!  I know what she meant, but I still had to laugh.  Maybe because I say stupid things on tv pretty much every day of my life.

6.  One more thing.  The 20/20 Special before the pageant was AWESOME.  I thought it was dead on the realities of the pageant world!

7. Speaking of realities, Mondays come with a big dose of them...alarms that sound too early, dogs that puke in their cages while you sleep, 100 + emails to address...sigh!!

8. This means I'm going to have to cut this short.  I'm getting ready to record the weekend show before I leave the station.

9. Don't think my day stops there.  Next I'm headed to the gym, then home to clean, cook, and do laundry before we take Eli to the Big Brother Class at the hospital tonight.

10. Speaking of Eli?  How did I make it to No. 9 on this list before even mentioning him...poor kid.  Actually, lucky kid!  He had a great weekend to make up for the last one.  I'll post more on that soon. 


  1. Dog?? Did you guys get a new dog? Or are you talking about Radar?

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
