At It Again

Ya'll, I charged my camera over the weekend and brought it to work with me this morning with the best of intentions to blog, blog, blog.  Only I forgot one thing...the USB cord.  Honestly, I haven't a clue where it is since I thought it was on my desk.  This could get interesting.   I'll try again tomorrow, I guess.  Since I haven't been the best blogger as of late, I thought I would take a second and get you up to speed on a few things.

1. I have been the funkiest mood this whole entire month which is one reason I haven't blogged much! Sorry and you're welcome all at the same time.

2. I'm so over the whole "Motivational Monday" thing.  What a stupid idea.  The truth is, I'm trying desperately to lose weight, but it won't budge.  I'm done.  How can something so simple be so hard?  Really, please tell me.  I'm gonna keep at it, but don't expect updates.

3. Eric was sick all weekend with a stupid head cold.  I'm pretty much the worst caregiver in the world.  Add two kids into the mix, and Eric probably wishes he was able to go to work instead of staying home with me.  Ha!

4. Our anniversary trip has been postponed a week.  We will now be celebrating  five years of marital bliss with my in-laws!  This is a fact that doesn't bother me in the least, but I find it amusing and have given my poor hubby the hardest time.  Ha! Truthfully, my in laws are wonderful and will help with the kids which means I get to sleep in. And let's face it, when you have kids, sleep is much higher on the priority list than romance!  So there you go...yay for sleep!

5. In case you're wondering, and I'm sure you're not, but just in case...we will be taking our trip next week while my in-laws watch the kids.  Yay for two weeks of sleep in a row!!!

6. Speaking of sleep, Ellie still doesn't sleep through the night.  She's not bad.  Really, she eats and is right back down.  Lately she's been up twice a night.  Despite being super annoying, I know she needs the calories.  I've tried everything to get her to eat more at a feeding, but she just has tummy problems.  In due time I suppose.

7. Even though the rain made a dud of a summer, we are very much enjoying the fall.  We're into a good grove that includes Monday's cleaning, Tuesdays at the library, Wednesdays at church, Thursday's at the pumpkin patch, and Fridays at home enjoying  family movie night.  When the weather cools off we will trade the Pumpkin Patch for the park or McDonald's but I like our routine for now.

8. I love having stuff to look forward to, and so does Eli.  Lately he has me rattle off our upcoming events all the way through Christmas.  What can I say, we're a spirited bunch in the Watson home.  Maybe I'll find my blogging groove again and share all the fun with you!

9. I'm trying really hard to come up with two more points to get us to number ten because I'm OCD and like round numbers.

10. I guess my life is boring, and I only have eight things to share today.  Sorry!  Have a great Monday.


  1. I just wanted to let you know that I was thinking of you this morning and happened to catch a glimpse of you on a commercial. You look fabulous and I hope you're doing great!!

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
