Healthy At Home

I guess now is as good a time as any to get back into the blogging world, right?  I miss it so much, but life is crazy...well, it WAS crazy.  Actually, it's still crazy but just in a different kind of way.  Our schedules are clear but everything else around us is in chaos.  Of course, that's another story for another day.

All things considered, I'm happy for the reprieve in our schedule and hope to take advantage of the slower pace.  Like most everyone else, we are experiencing the effects of the coronavirus. We're living in a parallel world where we alternate between gratitude for the opportunity to breathe in the slower pace, while balancing the concern of so many unknowns.  It's a delicate dance, but we are making the most of it.  We are choosing (or trying to choose) joy in the middle of a really, flat out, weird season of life. Being the history dork I am, I know that those who follow behind us will want to study how we are surviving this international pandemic, so I've decided to start blogging again while I have the time and an opportunity for content.

Side note...history was my minor in college and I only lacked three classes to have a double major. I opted out of finishing the second degree because during my last semester at WKU (go Big Red)  I snagged my first TV job and also decided to get married, so #priorities.  Also, getting married was the best decision ever...duh! Some days I wish I had finished the second major, but more often than not, I realize it wouldn't have given me any professional advantage. My broadcasting degree has proven far more valuable. Nonetheless, I have enjoyed teaching Social Studies during this home school thing.  I'm rocking at least one subject.  I think I could rock writing class too but my students don't share my enthusiasm for the subject, so I digress. Also, casual blogging breaks every grammar rule known to the English language, so maybe I should just scratch that theory.

Back to the point, I think I will blog through this pandemic both for myself and for anyone who wants to look back on it some day.  I have some pretty heavy thoughts I want hash out too, but not today. We will save that for later.  My goal right now is two posts a current post and one older post.  I will start in January and go from there to get caught up.

Ok...I think this is a good place to stop, so we will pause and pick right back up tomorrow. I'm so excited to be back at the "keyboard," and I can't wait to share my life with all two of you who still read this (hi, Mom and Mimi).  Haha!  But really, let's make the most of this pandemic.  See you tomorrow!

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
