This Week

Ya'll it has been such a weird week around these parts.  On July 4th our studio flooded, and it was a mess.  We've been without a show since last week.  I have been working but weird hours.  I've been going in around 7:30.  This gives me time to help Eric in the mornings and to take the kids to daycare.  So on to the weird week.

Monday started off fun.  I had an interview to do at the airport here, and they let me take a flight around the city.  It was a nice way to break up the daily routine!

Eli ended up getting a really high fever on Monday night.  Eric also had a fever, so he stayed home from work with the kids on Tuesday while I went in to do a couple of interviews.  Of course I had to rush back home to take care of my sickies, and get Eli to the doctor's office where we learned he had Fifth's Disease.  

Basically, it's a virus where you get a high fever and rash.  Honestly, he felt fine  but couldn't go back to daycare until he was fever free for 24 hours.  This meant that I had to stay home on Wednesday.  I was so tired from the lack of sleep between Ellie's tummy troubles and Eli's fever that I sent our girl to daycare while I sneaked in some extra shut-eye.  

After sleeping in a bit, I got Eli up and took him to work with me.  He behaved so well that I treated him to Chick-fil-A (his favorite) for lunch.  Then we picked up Ellie from daycare and took her back to the doctor for her four month well visit and shots.  At this point Eric was still feeling pretty crappy, so I braved a torrential downpour with two kids to get him some soup from Cracker Barrel.  Yes, I get wife of the year.

So let's recap.  In two days I have:

Slept a total of 7 hours.

Nursed three people back to health.

Been to the doctor's office TWICE.

Endured the dreaded four month shots.

And drenched both of my kids in the middle of a storm.

Yep, it's been a crazy week already!  Who's ready for the weekend?  Let me answer...THIS GIRL!!!

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
