A Little Catch Up

Ya'll, please believe me when I tell you that I have at least a dozen posts written and waiting to be edited before I publish them.  I really am trying to do better this year when it comes to documenting our lives, but I'm so stinkin' busy!

This past weekend my parents and Eric's parents came into town for Eli's ballgame.  My mom and dad stayed in a hotel, so we met them for dinner on Friday night and took the kids back to swim.  They volunteered to have a sleepover for the little Watson's, so Eric and I went out and then rented a movie online.  

It worked out perfectly that my parents had the kids because I had to be at a 7:30 am event for work on Saturday.  After running home to pick up Eric, we rushed to the ball field where we met his parents.  We spent some time with his family after the game, and then I went with my parents for a while Eric planted the garden.  Ellie and Ellie ended up staying with them in the hotel again on Saturday, so that meant even more sleep!!

Sunday was a perfect combination of work and rest, but Monday threw us for a loop.  Late in the afternoon, Eli's school called to say that he had a temperature of 99 degrees but that he had a visible knot in his neck, and he couldn't turn his head.  By the time that I made it to his school (20 minutes later) his fever had spiked to 102.5.  Our doctor advised us to head straight to Urgent Care.  

We ended up getting the fever under control and were sent back home to follow up with the doctor on Tuesday.  I already had an appointment scheduled for Ellie, so they saw both kids at the same time.  Eli has bronchitis and a sinus infection, and Ellie (who I though was there for speech) had an ear infection. Her speech is fine…go figure!

 After a day at home with lots of cuddles, these two bounced right back.  In fact, they terrorized Kroger yesterday afternoon when I attempted to catchup on some overdue grocery shopping. With all the drama around the Watson home, I am so ready for the weekend.  I think I earned it.

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
