My Car is SICK...NOT My Son!!

Yes...I did just get my car in February...But for the past few days I have been hearing a roar in it!! not good!!! I told my husband and he said it was just road noise!!! But I just would not settle for that!! I had the tires rotated and balanced and still had the noise!! So of to the dealer I go...

And sure enough it is sick....the Wheel Bearing is going out in it!! UGH!!

I have a loaner Impala...smaller than my Equinox but it is a ride!

Have a great day and it is a very special day... It is my sister Barbara's Birthday!!!

Sick or NOT Sick...that is the question?

So I get this phone call today and it was this handsome face calling to tell me that he was not feeling soooo good!! And with ALL the sickness that is going around I did not want him to stay at school if he had something and give it to someone else!! So home he goes!!!Now if he was actually sick or not.....I am not so sure! But he did go home and go to bed and he just laid around all afternoon so maybe he was....or maybe he was just tired!!! Who knows!!!!
I called the doctor and they said that he may start running a fever...but he didn't so I am sending his tail back to school tomorrow!!
I have a several prayer request:
1. Kerry Murphy my best friends husband fell and broke his leg!
2. Rhonda Murphy my best friend... she has a cyst in her breast they are taking out!
3. Teresa Bragg she has cancer and the chemo is no longer working so she is now checking herself into hospice... :(
Please keep these in your thoughts and prayers!!!

Happy Birthday Alexis!!!

Happy 4th Birthday Alexis!! This sweet face is a little girl that we go to church with and her memaw is one of my best friends! She has lived with her memaw since she was about 3 months old and everyone at church just loves this little girl!!!
Today was her birthday and she had her party at Chick-fil-a!!
Even the cow came to the party...Alexis loved it!!!
Every chance she got she would give the cow a hug!! She is so cute and loves every one so much!!

Memaw made her a little mermaid cake...I decided to just have ice cream and gave Joan my piece of cake to take to her husband!!
She blew out her candles and made a wish and just look at that face...I wonder what she wished for!!! When I asked her Sunday what she wanted for her birthday she said " I would LOVE to have some chocolate!!!" And well that is what I got her...A pack of M&M's!!!
Even Pastor Tommy came to the party!!! He is such a blessing to everyone at the church even the little ones!!! I like his shirt...the bottom of it says Jesus fixed it all with just 3 nails!!

It was a Terrific Tuesday!!!

I hope that you all have a Wonderful Wednesday!!

Where did the day go?

I am going to pick up from my day Friday...we organized some containers and got them all ready to for today!!! I got to work and cooked the kids some breakfast so that they would have a nice full tummy for what was ahead of them!!! Cleaning and organizing Alex's room!! Don't they look so happy!! They really love the finished product and they are so happy to be able to get to some of the toys that they have not been able to find cause they were all mixed together!
I emptied out toy boxes and separated out all the toys!! It was an all day project...before I knew it...2:00 was here and I had got nothing but Alex's room done!! But they are just so happy!! I am trying to teach them that if you play with it and you are finished then put it back in its container so that we can find it another time and get to play with it again!!!

I know that is a hard thing to teach a 3 and almost 5 year old but if we do it daily then it will become a habit!!

I came home and had a horrible headache...ugh!!! I hate to take medication, it gives me a tummy ache but I ended up having to take a couple of advil to get some relief!!!

And then the day was gone...Yay...Monday is over!!!

Have a Terrific Tuesday!!!

Averys room makeover today!!!

Sweet Saturday!!

This is my brother Marshall!
And this is my brother Leon!!
And I went to visit them yesterday and took them each a plate of these...Fried Half Moon Apple Pies!!! It is one of their favorites that our mama use to make for them and I hardly ever make them but when I do I share with them!!

I made some stuff for Jeff to carry out of town with him and he really does appreciate it!!

And then Bradley wanted a pound cake!!

And that is what I did all day!! I have a really bad crick in my shoulder/neck but I did manage to get these things baked and delivered!!
It was a Sweet Saturday!!
Have a Blessed Sunday!!!

Fun Friday!!

Friday is my favorite day of week!! I love the weekend!! I got to work yesterday and Alex had pulled out some puzzles...she was so excited!!! She loves puzzles!!!!
So then she went and got more except they were a little harder! The first one we put together was 60 pieces and it was not so bad!

And then the next one was 100 pieces...and it just about got the best of me...I thought we would never find all those pieces!!!! But we finally got it and then what did we do? Took it apart and put it back in the box!!! Alex said "We can put it back together one day next week!!" Ha!! I don't think that we will be trying that one but I think that I will try to buy her a new one this weekend!! Maybe not so many pieces!!
Tracy worked from home Friday and wanted to get some stuff in the home office and this nice white shelf was in there so we moved it to Alex's room and put these nice storage containers in it!!
But then we decided to take a picture of the toys and label it so she would know what went where!! And it really turned out cute and she started working on putting the toys in the correct container but we will work more on it next week!!!
It was a wonderful day!!! My children are excited about a fun weekend and Jeff is home for a couple of days!!! You all take care!!

I am going to Graduate!!

I am taking the Plunge!!! I am going to get my GED!!
I have been out of school for 22 years and I have decided that I am going to go and get my GED!!

I have a couple of things that I have thought about doing and the first is this...that's right Kelly and Suz...A Court Reporter!! Since forever I can remember this is what I wanted to do when my kids got to the age that they did not need me at home all the time!! So I am getting my GED and gonna see where I can go with it!

But my other choice would be a Nurse!! If I see that I am not able to do the Court Reporting then I think that I would enjoy being a nurse!!!

Not that any of this can happen over night...but I am at least making a plan for myself!! I have always worked Daycare and just whatever so that I could be home with my children and so now I think that it is time that I start thinking about my future and see what I can actually do!!
I hope that you all have a good day!!

Marine Corps ROTC program

Yep...that right!
Bradley is in the same program that Justin was in for 4 years and now this is Bradley's 3rd year of it!! I really don't think I have to worry about him joining the Marines!
He does not like for anyone to tell him what to do! LOL!!
And he doesn't like to be away from home for any length of time!
But no matter what he does he likes the program and so do I!!
He is gonna do the drill team and go on meets and he looks so darn cute in his uniform!!
His first one is in Monroe and I can't wait to see how good he does!
I had my parent meeting last night and I yes we have fundraisers and all that kind of stuff, but over all it is a wonderful program!
The parent meeting kept me out until about 9 o'clock...almost bedtime!!
You all have a Wonderful Wednesday!!!

Not enough to live on...

I got my SS statement in the mail on Saturday and just opened Monday and I was just devastated!!
$338 is all that I will be allowed... if I even get to draw Social Security.
And that is not enough for me to live on!!!
That will not even pay a power and water bill!!
What in the world will I do??
I sure hope that I win the lottery by the time I turn 62 so that I will be able to live!
But other than that wonderful news I had an okay day!!
Jeff is back out of town and Granny is back at work so it was just me and the twins!!!
Have a Terrific Tuesday!

Under the Spout...

where the glory came out!!!!
That was one of Brother Tommy's sayings that he came out with during the morning service at church!! He was on fire yesterday morning and he let it roll!!! I really enjoyed the service and then to Zaxby's to get a quick bite! (salad of course!)
Then we went home and I did some cooking for a guy at work that his wife had some surgery and several of us are cooking them dinner! I was in charge of green beans, pound cake and sweet tea! Then I cooked us dinner and wanted to do some pictures of the twins! I really need to update my photos that I have hanging on the walls and I thought this one was great of Britani...She is just beautiful!!!!
And Bradley is Very Handsome!!

And to be twins they just really don't look that much alike but they are both just the best children...not wanting to take pictures but did it cause I wanted them too!

You all have a Marvelous Monday!

Traffic, dinner and sisters!!!

I am so glad that I only work 15 minutes away from home!
I took Britani to spend the weekend with Lisa and Brittany Dalton...all the way to Newnan!!! And on the way back this is what I sat in...
That's right me and Brenda sat in traffic!! For lets say about 2 hours!!! I was fit to be tied!!! I never have to sit in traffic like that an it was just horrible! But Brenda and I made the best of it!!! We talked to people in cars around us and they notice my Marine magnet and told me to tell my Marine "Thank you!!" I thought that was very nice! Not that you can trust people now a days so we were very careful!!!
It was just the two of us...Bradley and Tyler had gone to a football game and so we thought we would take our chance on eating out! Something that we have not done much since Brenda got sick!! But we did it and we did really good!!! Longhorn...YUMMY!!!

Well that is about it! Can't wait to see what Brenda and I do today!! Jeff will be home late tonight!!! So we have today of just us two!!

Walk a mile in my shoes...

Walk a mile in my shoes or in this case 2 miles!!! YAY for me!!! I have done really good on my diet all this week and I have walked every night since Sunday except Wednesday and I am up to over 2 miles!!! I put on my shoes...kinda like these. Nike of course but may be looking for some new ones...any suggestions?
My kids all have one of these and Britani just got her the new I-pod touch and so I used her old one and I got me an arm strap and off I went! Love me some music to walk to it makes it go by so much quicker!!!

But because we had just heard about a lady that is missing that was out walking my family did not want me going by myself so lets see who went with me...

Of course she does not need to do any exercise she is so small but she just like me put on those shoes and got her I-pod and off we went!! We had good quality time walking!!! She is my baby girl and I love her and appreciate her protection!!
You all have a Fantastic Friday!!!

Absence makes the Heart grow fonder!

This is me and my hubby! We have been married for almost 21 years! Well how can that be right I am only 29...LOL!!! We have really grown up together! We met each other in church when we were very young and never dreamed that I would marry him! I use to avoid his phone call as much as my mama would allow!! (remember that Tracy!!!!) But as we got older and started to date, he was not so bad after all!

But to get to the blog...Absence makes the heart grow fonder!! Well Jeff is working out of town for a little while! And we kinda like the break...(don't tell him!!) We just kinda do what we want and eat when we want and what we want!! But we do miss him and it is true that...

"Absence does make the Heart grow fonder!!"

He is see all the things that I do! He is having to cook, clean, do laundry and he is really missing me!! Makes him appreciate me more!!!!

You all have a great day!!

Perfect Dinner!!!

Yum, Yum, YUMMY!!!
I got this recipe from:
And it is WONDERFUL!!!!
They were the best tasting pork chops I have ever put in my mouth!!! Not dry...I did not feel like I was choking when I ate them like I normally do when I eat a pork chop!!! You must give them a try!!!

And I added green beans

And Mac and Cheese for the kids!!

It was a perfect dinner!!!
And then after dinner I went for my walk and Granny even joined me for a little bit then she came back home. But some movement is better than no movement!!!
Have a great day!
