What a Sunday!

I did not get a chance to do a post on Sunday but it was an incredible day. The weather was absolutely beautiful. I convinced Amanda and Caitlyn to go on a bike ride down a path that runs behind our neighborhood and we had a blast (We dragged Christopher along too)! I wish that I had taken the camera to take some pictures. Despite the awful weather Thursday, Friday and Saturday, that one day just seemed to make it all right.

It is all good!

It's official!!

The camping trip scheduled for this weekend has been cancelled due to the weather. It is supposed to start raining today and continue to rain until Sunday. Not only is it going to rain, they are also calling for severe thunderstorms and hail. The trip has been rescheduled until May 29th. BUMMER.

I was looking forward to camping this weekend. But safety first. Happy Friday!

Did I really take days off?!!!!

I do not take very many personal days (mental health days), but I did today. I do not get very many days alone with my own thoughts. I have a million things to do today and tomorrow. I will probably get only half of them done but it is okay.

I am getting ready to go and get my hair done. I just need my hair relaxed again. I will probably just get a wrap since I will be in the woods with the boys this weekend (I hope).

The child is at school and now I start my mad dash around town trying to get some things done. Ciao!

Is our trip in trouble?

After weeks and weeks of preparation, it appears that our camping trip may get cancelled. It is supposed to start raining tonight and (may turn into thurderstorms) continue to rain until Sunday. According to the Cub Scout manual, it is not wise to camp by the lake in a tent during a thunderstorm. Final decision will be made Thursday evening.

I am very sad because I have been looking forward to this trip since January. :(

Manic Monday!

Long story short. It has been a crazy day. Worked all day, then went to a memorial service or a good friends mother (I could not get off to attend the funeral tomorrow), then had to show my sister how to navigate downtown North Charleston. UGH! That means I did not get home until after nine. I missed most of "Dancing with the Stars". :(

I will be okay. Tomorrow is another day.

Crazy Weekend!

It was a wild and crazy weekend. But I had a good time. Saturday I went to a baby shower for a friend of mine. It was the first time that I have ever been to a couple's baby shower. It was really and all day affair but I had a sitter on the clock so I could only stay for a few hours. They grilled hamburgers and hotdogs and the cake was adorable. (I forgot to take my camera). She is supposed to email me pictures and I will try to post a picture of the cake.

After the shower, I took Christopher for a late afternoon fishing expedition out at Lake Moultrie. Of course we did not catch anything but we still had a good time.(That is until sunset and it got really cold. . . BRRRRRR.!)

Today we went to the Charleston Sportsman Classic. It was alright but the article made it appear more interesting that it really was. The only things I found interesting was the Bass Fishing 101. It was 30 minutes but the guy really brought some interesting facts about fishing that really made sense to me. Once you actually see different lures being used and actually see how they work. He almost caught two bass but they got away.

It was a beautiful day in South Carolina today. It is a little chilly in the shade though.

Lastly, I got to see Heather and Latte this weekend. Latte has gotten so big! Even though we only saw each other for a short time, it is great seeing you and knowing that you are doing well.

Time to prepare for the big Cub Scout trip this weekend. Busy. Busy.

St. Patty's Day Message

Wow. Did not realize it had been that long since I posted anything. It has been crazy the last week. I am actually feeling better. I can not say that I am sleeping better but I have good nights and bad nights. I have had a lot of things going on and I have really gotten out of my routine.

Mother is feeling better. They still have no idea why she got so sick.

Christopher has one more achievement to complete his wolf badge in Cub Scouts. We are going camping with the Pack next weekend and will get a number of electives completed so he can earn a silver arrow (we may actually get two silver arrows). Once he starts playing baseball he will get his baseball belt loop.

I so do not watch television but I am now a "Dancing with the Stars" addict. I just need to turn it off and go to bed. But I want to know who is getting eliminated.

Good Night.

Not had much good sleep the last few weeks. It is really starting to show. I keep waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to get back to sleep. Here it is a Saturday morning and I have been awake since 4:30 am. I have not been going to bed early, no naps, nothing.

I am going to take Christopher out to the baseball field today and teach him how to catch. I will leave the batting up to the baseball coach. I need to get him to where he is not afraid of the ball. The weather is supposed to be nice today so it should be a good day.

Break time. . .

No snow. :( But I was very happy when Cub Scouts was cancelled for tonight. Ater I talked to the den leader, I took a shower put and put on pajamas and have been in the bed ever since. After my crazy week last week, I need a night off. Looking forward to thomorrow night's closing celebration for basketball. Kind of sad that the season is over. But I need a break.

Here is to my break and watching the final episode of "The Bachelor".

Crazy Weather Sunday

Can you believe that I am waking up the actual thunderstorms and the threat of a tornados?! To top it all off it is supposed to SNOW tonight into tomorrow. Of course I do not believe it. We will just have to wait and see.
