Mid-Week Musings

Hey, ya'll!  I am so stinking behind in life right now.  I know that I always say that, but it's kinda true.  No worries though, it doesn't bother me one iota. What does bother me is the lack of updating taking place, so here are five random thoughts to get you up to speed.

1. Last week was crazy with a capitol "C." I was out of the office on Thursday for a field trip, Friday working on a project, Monday on vacation, and yesterday for a trip to Frankfort.  Today it's all business and a whole lot of playing catch-up. 

2. I'm going to try to get back on track with blog posts this week, but don't hold your breath.  Ha!  My house is a mess from all the busyness, and that is driving BONKERS!!! Cleaning will probably top my priority list at this point. 

3. Also a priority is getting ready for family pictures. We are having them made on Sunday for the FIRST TIME as a family of four.  I know, I know…that's ridiculous.  I'm thinking we'll do neutrals with a pop of orange.  Yay!!

4. Also this weekend are a few other biggies like driving to Nashville, family movie night,  going to the orchard, painting pumpkins and hanging out with the Adkins clan! There may also be a bon fire tucked in there, but we'll have to play that part by ear.

5.  With all the fall activities coming at us so quickly, we'll have to start planning and organizing for the holidays.  I can. NOT. wait!!!

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
