Weekend Recap

We had a very rare weekend with nothing on the agenda other than a Friday night baseball practice, which was tons of fun hanging out with the moms in the dugout wrapped in blankets and trying to stay dry.  I'll miss this one day, so they say.

Saturday was lazy with no alarm clocks, lots of rain and a late breakfast complete with bacon and eggs.  After some more laziness, we had a 3:00 lunch at Moe's and went to Home Depot to get a piece to fix the toilet handle Ellie broke earlier in the day.  We also hit up a few home decor shops and stopped by Wal Mart before heading back home for Family Movie Night.  We watched Hocus Pocus, which proved to be a little too intense for my crew.

Eli was snoozing away on Sunday morning, which was much needed, so Eric said he would stay home while Ellie and I went to Sunday School and then he and Eli would meet us at for the service.  Instead, I got a text saying the dishwasher was leaking and he was going to fix it.  

I decided to go home and "help," but by the time I made it, he had already determined that the dish washer was working properly.  Our celebration was short-lived, however, because Eric's truck tire was flat. 

After airing it up, we all piled into the truck and took a ride Sam's Club so they could repair it.  With two people in front of us, we had two hours to kill, so we got the kids and Icee and pretzel each at kinda wondered around the store.

When they finally called us back to the service department, we were informed that the hole was not repairable and they would have to order a new tire.  Lucky, us!

With that news, we headed to Wal Mart to return a fish tank we bought the day before that had a crack in it. So, let's review: broken toilet, false alarm on the dish washer removal, flat tire, broken fish tank, and would you believe me if I told you that a medicine I needed at the pharmacy was on back order?!

At this point we were laughing hysterically at our misfortune and decided to head home for a redo and a little rest.  The kiddos took full advantage and played dress-up for most of the day.  They also cleaned Eli's room, which was a major parenting win!

We finished the night with a dinner of popcorn, cookies, fish sticks, and cheese sticks in front of the television.  How's that for awesome parenting?  They got to eat junk and I got to clean out my cabinets!!

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
