Monday Musings

Ya'll it's Monday and I'm exhausted.  Let's just "bullet point" this one, ok?

1. Last night was rough with a capital "R."  I'm not sure if that should be "capital" or "capitol," and I'm too tired to look it up.  Don't judge.

2.  Ellie had a horrible night, and I've been up since 2:30 this morning.  

3. That would be why my desk looks like McDonald's threw up coffee.  I think I might have a problem.

4.  I would love to tell you that I went home to rest after work, but I just didn't.

5. I actually had a massage this afternoon, and while I am grateful for the relaxation I seriously thought about cancelling to go home and nap.  The only thing that kept me from it was the fact that my gift card expires tomorrow.

6. So, after the massage (which was wonderful by the way) I hit up Sonic for a Route 66 Diet Vanilla Coke. Yes, that was after my zillion coffees...and a Dr. Pepper.  Again, don't judge!

7. Then I took the kids to the park.  Sounds crazy, right?  Well, not after you bride your three year old to sleep by promising him a trip to the ball field, you have to follow through.

8.  I'm thinking now that I should dedicate an entire blog post to the benefits of Caffeine Overload and The Difference Between Parental Bribery and Positive Reinforcement. Ha!

9. Speaking of parenting, mine did a great job rearing me from this little girl into the fine specimen of a lady I am today.  Ha!  Sorry, I think that last diet coke is kicking in.  Really, please don't judge!

10. That's all I've got...wish us a better night.  Oh yeah, HAPPY MONDAY!!!

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
