Winter Storm 2018: Days Four & Five

We're on day five of this Winter storm, and I have a love/hate relationship with it.  Ok, those are some strong words...I like it and I don't.  The family time we've had is amazing and we've accomplished a few little organization projects, but staying home is just not one of my strong suits.  I am ready to get back into our routine and caught up again at work.

Nonetheless, I have greatly enjoyed my time with the kiddos and Eric.  Yesterday morning, we were both off of work for MLK Day, so we cleaned out some closets and decided to bust out of the house and make a run to town before another round of snow came through.  After dropping some stuff at Goodwill, we went to Sam's and Kroger's for a few things, which was good because, oh my goodness ya'll, round two was a bit more than we bargained four.

We woke up to about five inches of snow instead of the "dusting" they called for.  Ellie was kinda snotty last night and we were worried she was getting sick, so we went ahead and kept her home today just to be safe.  She's fine now, so we're thinking that it was just a runny nose from being outside sledding.

We opted to stay inside today so that we wouldn't risk anyone getting sick in these cold temperatures. I got a ton of work done so that hopefully tomorrow will be easier when I get back into the office.  We rounded out the snow day fun with dinner, hot chocolate and a civil game of Yahtzee.

The driveway is cleared, the car is turned around and facing the road, we've secured a spot at daycare and Momma is ready to get back to work.  But we're keeping our fingers crossed that we can fit in one more night of sledding when we call get back home.

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
