A Little Catching Up

As Boomama would say..."A list is really my only option".

1. I have been terribly lax in not only writing my own blog, but in reading all of my friends as well. (By the way, if you haven't been to Big Mama's Place in awhile, you really should. She's very funny when she's dealing with PMS, ya'll.) But, I
dear friend, Lisa, over at The Preacher's Wife bestowed upon me the
award just because I can make a cake that looks like a uterus.

So, thank you Lisa. I do not believe that the adjective "Rockin" has even been used to describe me before, but you can bet I'll let my kids know that you said I was!!!

2. There has been an on-going debate at our house as to whether or not we need a gate to place in the doorway of D's room at night to, you know, cage the little animal. You see, little D manages to get up sometimes in the middle of the night and wreak havoc around the house. I have awaken to find that was on, and there was little D with a pencil and a stack of mail, just writing to his heart's content. As I entered the brightly lit room, with my half-open eyes, I heard a much too cheerful voice greeting me with "MOM! I! WITE! I! WITE!" (D-speak for "Look at all my beautiful writing, don't you think I should have my own blog?) I have also awakened to find little toddler-sized bites missing from some of the cookie bouquets that were awaiting delivery the next morning....ergh!!! And just this week, the little booger got ahold of the birthday cake cookies that I had drying on top of the stove (the ones I posted pictures of yesterday) and ate some!! I had to make more cookies and deliver them a day later than planned because of that little monster!! (Have I mentioned that he really is a cute little kid? And that I love him more than chocolate? Cause he is, and I do!) So, can you guess which member of the family is "Pro-Gate"???? The Man is a strong believer in just "teaching the kids that some things are off-limits". Which I completely agree with when it comes to the TV remote, or the cordless phone, or pretty much anything else I can monitor...WHILE I'M AWAKE! I really can't monitor what happens while I'm asleep, so I'm opting for the gate. Now last night...while the Man was on duty and D was supposed to be sleeping, the Man left the room for a minute and came back to find D eating a large amount of candy...a "Nerd Rope" to be exact. I believe we may be getting that gate soon after all...heh, heh, heh!

3. Tonight is my last night of freedom. You see, yesterday was my 15 year anniversary. Yep, that's right. 15 years ago, and a little more than 15 pounds ago, I wore this dress and pledged my life to this man...

...and no, that's not why this is my last night of freedom. It is my last night of freedom because tomorrow night we are going out to celebrate said anniversary (we waited so we could see the movie "No Reservations" that doesn't open until tomorrow). Saturdays are just always jam-packed. Sunday night is the parent's meeting to kick off football season. And Monday is the FIRST DAY OF FOOTBALL PRACTICE!!! Now, don't get me wrong, I'm totally psyched about the start of football season...because, as you know, I HEART FOOTBALL. But, my evenings will be spent chasing a two-year old around the field while trying to watch both the football AND the cheer practice so that when my kids ask "Did you see that?" I can truthfully say, "Yes, I sure did!" Oh yeah, and trying to get pictures of all of it for posterity, coach's gifts, and blog fodder!

So, that said, I'm off to enjoy my last night of freedom by folding the laundry, loading the dishwasher, and watching "Dreamer" with my kids while we have this one last chance....sigh. Thanks for stopping by for the rambling drivel...again!

I do have to ask why you made a uterus cake??? it's intriguing

Beautiful bride! :-)

I vote "Yes" for the gate, not that my vote counts or anything. LOL.. :-)

And, I too have to ask about the uterus cake. I am just speechless about that.

Melody said...

LOL! The uterus cake was for a "Coming Out" party for a young woman who was having a hysterectomy. Her friends wanted to lighten up the occasion a little. I normally turn down any "body part" cake requests, but I thought this one was not only for a good cause but also excellent blog fodder!!! Looks like I was right!

julie said...

OK, I have to agree that that cake makes you a totally rockin girl blogger.

I also vote for the gate! Without question.

Hope you enjoyed the movie.
