Mid Week Musings

It’s been kinda crazy around these parts this week.  Since I never, ever blog anymore, I thought this would be a good time to get everyone up to speed with these five little points.

1. Ellie has been sick for almost a week. It started when she cut three molars at the same time.  She teeths really hard and usually ends up with a gunky eye and runny nose.  This time she got an ear infection, double eye infection, and some kind of cold. 

2. The timing was really bad because I started my new job on Monday.   The good news is it’s going great.  I need to learn how to pace myself a bit because I work super fast from being on deadline for all those years in television. Ha!  I love it, and I’m enjoying meeting all the new people. 
3. Eric’s parents were in town for a belated birthday celebration (he turned 30 last week) and to help watch Ellie since she’s been sick.  They took Eli home with them yesterday, but they may come back tonight to help some more with Ellie.  They’ve been a blessing for sure!

4. T-Ball is still rolling along, and my boys are loving it.  The games start here in the next week or so.  I can’t wait!

5.  I never thought I would be so happy to see warm weather arrive.  It’s been a doozy of a winter.  Maybe sometime this week I’ll actually update my Spring Bucket List.

Okay that is all.  Two posts in one week…that hasn’t happened in months!

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
