Midweek Musings

Happy Wednesday.  I can’t believe that we are halfway through the workweek, but I guess that’s what happens when you have a day off. I don’t have too much to “muse” about today, honestly.

I have been so busy that I haven’t made it to the gym, but I did get a few items knocked off of my To- Do list yesterday during lunch. Eric and I met at Sam’s Club for a hot date/lunch this afternoon while he was getting his new tires put on the truck, so there’s that. My goal is to get back at it tomorrow.

The kids have been pooped here lately. At least one child has gone to bed early every night (why can’t it ever be both of them), so Eric and I started watching the History Channel’s mini series on the Kennedy family.  Ya’ll know my history-loving heart is loving every minute of it.

Oh, and I’m behind on laundry.  I was doing so well too.  Having Monday off and working last night just threw a spur in my wheel.  We have church tonight, so I won’t be doing any cleaning until at least tomorrow, but it can wait.  At least my house smells like a giant, delicious, cinnamon, pumpkin.

Is Eli's artwork from today not the cutest? I love how large he drew himself in the right photo, and poor Ellie has the largest eyes.  Ha!  PS- the left drawing is of him kicking someone in basketball. I'm not sure what that's about, but at least he drew under the caption of, "When I am angry, I should not..."

Other than those random facts that further solidify my boring, yet wonderfully blessed life, I have nothing new to report.  Oh, I almost forgot.  The "wicked Witch of Western Kentucky" says HAPPY FALL!!

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
