Today is the last day of school for this year.......

I would love to tell you that this is what I'm going to do to my alarm clock. Ten whole beautiful weeks of no getting up at the crack of dawn. Looking forward to sleeping until at least 7:30 a.m. each morning.

In a couple of weeks, I'll be hollering, is it August yet....but for now, I'm gonna try to enjoy my children more this summer and be a better mommy than last summer (yeah, right).

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Hey Everybody,

Has anyone figured out who this guy is yet?
Somebody put him on Monday Morning Eye Candy several months ago. I was just going over some old posts and found him again.
Who is this man? What movie does he play in? Lula, (knock, knock) I know you have got to know who this is. There is no way a man this good looking has escaped your notice. Anyone?
Hope y'all are having a great week.

Couple things.........

First, Angie is having a jewelry giveaway. That's right, my lovelies, a jewelry giveaway from Analise Designs. This is the one I want to win..

Isn't it beautiful? I can hardly wait to win. (A girl can dream, can't she?)

Speaking of dreaming...guess what I did today? A whole lot of nothing.

Well, I started the day off with two loads of laundry, but it got better, I promise. My mom and dad met me and picked up all three of my dear little darlings and took them to spend the night at a motel in southern Georgia (which is where my family will be holding it's annual Register Family Assosciation Family Reunion) tomorrow. My DH is at work and I was all alone. Sniffle, sniffle....

Yeah, right!!!! I went and bought groceries with not one person asking me for anything that wasn't on my list. I came home and read till I fell asleep and had super two hour nap with no one poking anyone or hollering and no blood shed or anything. I woke up on my own. No tattlers waking me up. Then..........................I went out on the town. BY MYSELF........gasp.

I went and bought myself a pretty new bra (I even had time to try it on) and then I took myself to Olive Garden for supper. (See, my DH and I won this $25 gift card there in April of 2008 and he won't take me out, so I took myself). It was grand. The waitress was very courteous and I tipped her generously.

Now I'm home and enjoying the peace and solitude. I'm gonna read till I fall asleep and then wake up and get ready for my family reunion and do my hair and make up and not be so angry that I poke myself in the eye with the mascara wand. Oh, BTW, I finally learned how to curl my eyelashes. Touch me.......LOL

Blessings, hope everyone has a great weekend.

He's a football legend.......okay, so maybe not a legend exactly, but it could happen.

This is my youngest son a few years back. (Kind of looks like some hockey players, eh?)
I digress. Tonight, my sweet, tiny, little baby boy took the field in his middle school football uniform. And I could not believe that I actually sat in the pouring rain to watch a football game. Do I love this kid or what?
Because it was raining, most, if not all of the people in the stands were holding umbrellas. Big, large umbrellas. And it was kind of hard to see out from under them, but I heard my sweet, tiny, little baby boy's name being called over the loudspeaker. He had made a great takedown. Yeehaw!!!!! I couldn't really see it because of the umbrellas, but the dude on the loudspeaker said my sweet, tiny little baby boy's name, so I yelled as loud as I could.
Then, I went to work the concession stand. Here's how it worked out. The mothers of the varsity players worked the concessions while the middle school moms watched their children play. When our children were finished, we relieved the varsity moms so they could watch their children play.
Let me rephrase that. Some of us worked the conessions. Others of us just wanted to be there to be seen. It was totally like I was in high school all over again. Man, I am too old to have to put up with that clique crap again. So, I'm just going to work where I'm needed (because I support my son) and go home.
After all was said and done, it was a good evening. And I'd just like to say a big ole WELCOME HOME to my MIL. She has been gone for two weeks and I'm glad she's back.
Oh, dear, dear SIL, June is almost here. And your house is next door and the septic went in today and I'm getting more and more excited.....
Y'all be blessed.

My babies.....where has the time gone?

My oldest child, the Science Kid, won an award at school for Academic Excellence in Science. He freaks me out. He can pull this crap out of the air and knows it. He's like his father.

My middle child, the Wild Thing, won four awards for Most Improved in all his core subjects. The Sylvan experience has definitely helped him.

The baby, shh, can't call her that out loud, she'll have a hissy. The baby is seven going on seven. She is such a sweetie. All loves and cuddles and smiles and giggles. I'm trying to cherish all this time, because, soon, she will be much more busy that she is now and will have too little time for all of this with mama.

Each one of my children is different (and thank God for that). But each one is fearfully and wonderfully made. I wonder how it is that they can drive us to the brink of insanity one moment and the next make us want to smooch the skin off their little faces.

I have truly been blessed with these three. Yeah, let's see what I'm saying about them two weeks into summer break. LOL.
Hope everyone is having a great week so far.

Just blog farting around.....................

I don't really have a cohesive blog, but I have some little things rattling around.....

1. I need someone to tell me how to get my eyelashes curled upward. I finally broke down and bought one of those eyelash curlers, but my lashes are not long and beautiful and curled when I get finished. What is the secret?

2. Did Danny really try that note on idol last night?

3. What is up with the series Fringe? YIKES!!!!

4. How come teachers make so little money? And people who play football and basketball and can barely spell their names make millions?

5. Can you tell my life is so boring that I have absolutely nothing to blog about?

I need some comment loving y'all. Don't hate me because I'm boring.
