Life Lately

I took a little unexpected blogging hiatus thanks to a crazy few weeks.  The timing really stinks because I was doing so well with it all.  Oh well, life happens and that’s what this blog is about after all isn’t it?  Life…our life…and the ups and downs of it all. 

So, when I last wrote we were headed to Lexington for my mom’s birthday and Monster Jam!  We had a ballgame early that Saturday which we were dreading because Eli was crying every game.  Well, I goofed and by the time we showed up it was halfway over.  Ha!  Eli played two quarters and made a few good rebounds, which boosted his confidence.  We are so grateful for a patient coach.  After that, it continued to be a great weekend. Eli and Eric enjoyed Monster Jam, and the rest of us had fun celebrating 58 years with Mom.

That next week is kinda a blur.  Monday and Tuesday I had training at work.  Wednesday was a retirement party and website redesign launch, Thursday I stayed late for a United Way banquet, and I had back to back meetings all day Friday.  Mixed in there was also church, more meetings, and few other work projects. CRAZY!!!!!

This past weekend started off great with a family outing to watch Warren East play basketball.  Saturday Eric’s parents came by up to watch Eli play ball and we enjoyed some time together after the game.

Things changed on Sunday morning when I woke up with a cold.  Since then Ellie has had a stomach virus, I’ve missed work two days, I caught the stomach bug, and Eric is down for the count today. 

I AM. So. Over. Winter….Germs Be Gone!!!!!!!!!!

I think you can see that it’s been a little hectic around these parts, which is why I’ve been MIA lately.  My goal is to have everyone on the mend this weekend so that we can have some family fun.

Friday we hope to have pizza night and head to watch Warren East play again.  Saturday morning is another ballgame and closing weekend of quail hunting for Eric which is probably where he’ll head after the game.  While he’s gone, I plan to decontaminate every square inch of our house and cook a “for real” meal instead of something out of a can.  Ha!  Hopefully we can squeeze in family movie night and a few games.  Who knows, if the weather holds out there might even be a trip to the park in store for the kids on Sunday after church.

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
