A Chilly Soccer Game…..

Posted on

At 4pm today the temperature was approximately 8 degrees and it was extremely windy out….and of course Erika had a high school soccer game.

Well what good mother would stay at work doing her job, when she could stand out side in the freezing cold and watch High School Soccer…..not me that’s for sure.

So my husband (who is a good dad who also left work) picked me up and we went to the school and stood in the freezing cold and watched BM beat Centennial 2-1. Perhaps next time I should be more prepared and have my winter jacket, hat and mitts with me….as opposed to my dress clothes and light spring jacket….

No goals from Erika today, both were scored by her friend RP.

It was a great game despite the frigid temperature…..BM 2 for 2 now.

Early Morning….

Posted on

So……an early start to today’s activities…..

Little Em decided that 4:30 this morning was a good time to begin her day….I was not in agreement by any means but as she sat at my bedroom door, whining…..actually she makes a sound more like a donkey than a whine, however,…. I decided I had better get up and let her out to take care of her business since the alternative would not have been pleasant.

It takes approximately 5 minutes tops to walk downstairs, open the patio door and let Em out to do what needs to be done, come back in, get a drink and walk back upstairs to bed. Should have been no big deal right?…..wrong….. Em gets all settled back in her little bed rolls over on her back and is off to dream land. I on the other hand crawl back into bed and lay there staring at the ceiling listening to both dogs and my husband breathing….breathing is a good thing….it was that deep even breathing that meant everyone was sleeping……everyone but me. I lay there thinking things, stupid things, funny things, work things, bill paying things and so on.

My alarm clock shows the time on the ceiling so I watched the time creep forward and finally the alarm buzzed letting me know NOW it’s time to get up and start the day…yeah!! 🙂

I can’t be too upset though, because she is just so darn cute and adorable that she makes it worth losing sleep….I guess.

Little Em...looking all cute and adorable.

I love my life…..

Me and My Family….

Posted on

My family is my life.

I have been married to my wonderful husband for just over 10 years. I have 4 fabulous kids, 2 boys and 2 girls….26, 22, 19 and 16 who are the world to me. I have 2 great puppies….Cody, my 7 year old Splashed Lab and Emma, my 1 year old Border Collie mix.

My wonderful husband and me!!

I like to say what’s on my mind (one could call that venting), and tell stories about my family…and I like to reminisce (you know….say remember when….) so this will be a combination all of those things…..hope you enjoy!!

Life is full and I love it!!
