post Thanksgiving...

Thanksgiving was great...we went to Crawford...Kendall got to meet R's son and family. She had.a.BLAST......she fed cows, made smores, roasted weenies, saw Bush's ranch, went to the park where the Indians used to live...just a great time....His family was SO accepting of her and they were so sweet to her. We even saw Santa!!!

I am tired tonight...I don't know why, but I could not get out of bed this morning...and I need sleep.

Tomorrow Kendall has a private lesson with her cheer coach tomorrow. Their goal is to get this cartwheel down....then my parents are coming over and we are having pizza and decorating our tree. Thursday is Dayton's parade and we are going to see it. Friday KJ goes back to her Daddy...I miss that monkey when she is at her Daddy's. I miss our snuggles and giggles and hugs and kisses. I know she needs time with him too but darn I miss her.

I will post more when I am not so tired.

My best days are ahead of me...

11/16 - Late....

Not much has been happening with us...Kendall went to her dad's over the weekend since he had been out of town for business. I spent some time with my favorite adult :) It was very lazy and low key and just what I needed.
Over the weekend Granny got home and I talked to her! They had a great time and my dad did so well on the trip. We were planning on seeing them tonight for dinner but it ends up that KJ's daycare has a Thanksgiving dinner for the families tonight. So instead, they came to cheer to see her. They came over early and gave some presents and then we went to cheer. I signed KJ up for a private lesson. Her coach thinks that with one she will master the cartwheel. I really hope so. She wants to do one SO bad!! After cheer they took me to dinner...YUMMMM Ginger Cafe!!!
Last night I layed around and watched tv and did absolutely nothing...I should have done laundry...or cleaned...or SOMETHING, but I am beat this week and I didn't have the energy...tonight I must do something after we get home from the feast...
Tomorrow is Timbers Thanksgiving lunch. She doesn't know I am coming!! I am excited! I love surprising her!!!! Tomorrow night is Girl Scouts...which reminds me that I need to go to the bank...and send an email...and ugh...I just want a NAP........
OK, KJ is at her dad's again this weekend. I am missing her...I have her next week for Thanksgiving so I am excited about that! We have 4 whole days together!!!
I think I might buy a new tree tonight and get it set up then we can decorate on Monday...YAY for CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!
I will try and post some Thanksgiving feast lunch/dinner pics tomorrow if I have time!
Have a great weekend people!!!
My best days are ahead of me!!!

sick :(

Well, the rest of my week and weekend were pretty uneventful. I got to spend time with my sweetness. That made me happy :) He is really an amazing person. We get along so well and have so much fun together.

This week has gone by pretty quick aside from the fact that I feel AWFUL...I woke up Sunday morning with a very sore throat and tons of head congestion. By Tuesday it had moved into my chest...I have been sneezing and coughing and congested all week. I have no energy to get anything done.

Monday we had cheer and K and I went straight home, ate and went right to bed (after homework of course). Tuesday she wanted to stay late at daycare because they were doing a craft and I pick her up before craft time. So I ran a few errands and picked up her Thanksgiving shirt. We headed to Walmart for groceries, and came home ate, did homework and crashed. By yesterday morning I was kind of freaking out...my house was a WRECK!!! I couldn't even think about it without stressing. Sooo, last night we ran to Kohl's (KJ needed jeans) and then came home and CLEANED! All the laundry got put away, all the toys got picked up. I got all the laundry done. The house was picked up! Almost completely...now I just need to clean it! I need to run the vacuum, clean the counters, dust, you know, the usual...guess I will get that done new week since we have Girl Scouts tomorrow and I have weekend plans!!!

Just some things to note...
*MEN!! Please wear UNDERSHIRTS! I don't want to see your nipples....
*Being sick SUCKS. Especially when it is a cold and you have to let it run its course.
*I am a flip flop junkie...I wear them in the winter...get over it people!!
*I like to iron.
*I love my sweet KJ's intelligence! She is SO unbelievably smart!!!
*Fake people annoy me.
*I need to run again.
*I am a SUCKER for my kid.
*I dislike fundraisers, but I participate in them because of how happy it makes KJ when she wins the prize she really really wants...
*I love my friends! I have some good ones and even though I rarely get to see them, I know they are always there for me!
*I stole a sweatshirt from R and he is just going to have to get over it (don't worry, he knows it is gone).
*Coke makes me happy.
*CHRISTMAS makes me happy. I am trying to have the best attitude I can this year about it...It is going to be HARD and weird and sad and I just have to make the best of it. I only get KJ from noon on Christmas day until 6 on the 26th...

My best days are ahead of me!!!

They won the game! They are the season and tournament champs!! It was a nail biter!!!!! We won 11-8. I was so proud of my baby and all the girls! They were all in the zone and played well. They got medals for 1st place! It was so cool. Tomorrow night is the team party and they will get their 1st place trophies then!

OK, now on to me...I went back to the rheumatologist today. He had the results of my blood work. The extra tests were inconclusive of lupus but the antibodies test was crazy high again so that is twice that it has been like that. That test coupled with all my clinical symptoms makes him feel like it is lupus. He never said it actually was, but he gave me a drug called Plaquenil which specifically states it is used to treat lupus and my friend's sister who HAS lupus takes the same drug. I go back in 3 months to see how it is working...sooo, I guess I have lupus???? I don't really know what to say I have. I mean he didn't really say but he is treating me for it. I don't know, I just hope I start feeling better. He said it takes 6 wks to get the drug completely in my system but I really hope it doesn't take that long for me to feel better. He also gave me a non steroid pain med for the joint pain...so we will see if that works...

My parents will be home in a week and half. I have heard from them a few times. They are done in Europe and will be in the Bahamas on 11/08 and not sure after that but will be back in Galveston on 11/11 and then home sweet home on 11/12. I can't wait to see them! Well them and their pics and my souvenirs LOL!!!

I am off on Friday and I am really looking forward to a day to do nothing. There is rumor that I am supposed to learn how to make chicken fried steak and then there is a bday party to go to Friday night, but it will just be a nice relaxing day!

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

My best days are ahead of me!!!!!

Happy Halloween!!!!

Well, the Pink Sox WON the game Thursday night!! We slaughtered the Sluggers. We won 15-6 but should have been 10-3. The game started late because of some rain. We won the coin toss and i told the coach to pick visitors. For some reason the girls have more confidence when they get points on the board first. I see their point, I don't think they get the concept of being home team yet. Well, after 2 at bats, the sky opened up and gave us some more rain. We paused the game and when it cleared up we went back on the field. After 2 innings and 2 AMAZING hits by my ladybug, the score was 10-3. The game SHOULD have ended, but the other team wanted to play it out. So, into the 3rd inning we went. The score was not 15-3. When we went back to field, KJ got to play pitcher again! She was so so excited. The first ball that was hit went right to her. She scoopped it up and made the throw to 1st. SHE MADE THE OUT!!!!!! She didn't know it until later though because they let the girl stay on base since there was no chance they could win (I was not happy with this idea especially since the girl scored and they got to count a run that should have never coutned...). She played well at pitcher. At the end of the game we watched the other team get their tournament medals. Then it was time for game balls! GUESS WHO GOT A GAME BALL!! You guessed it! MY BABY!!!!! The coach told her how awesome she had been hitting and how well she had played pitcher and that she had improved so much overall during the season. It was a very proud Mommy moment!!!!

We were supposed to play Friday night but evidently it rained super hard Thursday night after the game so we were rained out and we are rescheduled for tonight at 6. So, Friday night we went home, got pizza and both fell asleep on the couch by 10pm. We had a big day ahead of us on Saturday so that was good.

Also on Friday, they had the book character parade at school. My fav book character from when I was a child was Pippi Longstocking. A month or so ago I brought it up to her and she was excited to be her!

Saturday morning we got up and had some breakfast and then got ready for the Zoo Boo with friends. On the way I heard from one set and they had to cancel. It was sad. But, KJ's BFF that moved over the summer was still coming so we were excited! We had a great time at the zoo and the girls REALLY loved on each other a lot. We had to park far away because it was so packed, but on the way back to the car I told her about me rolling down the hill at Miller Outdoor Theatre as a kid. She so badly wanted to try it...she was not super successful but she had fun doing it...

As we got to the car we heard from our other friends that we were supposed to meet at the zoo and they wanted to go to dinner. They came to our house and then we went to Italianos (our personal FAV). After that the girls wanted ice cream so we headed to Cold Stone and then we needed to warm up so we went to Starbucks! Kendall was excited to get a hot chocolate in a cup like Mommy :)

It was a super fun day! Sunday was very very lazy. Kendall watched Grease for the 1st time and then we went to look for some new tennis shoes for me. We went to the park later in the day and just came home and relaxed and did homework.

Then...there was last night!!! HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I love Halloween but I rarely dress up. We had a costume contest at the office, but I didn't participate. I just can never think of anything cool to be. So, I just wore a pumpkin shirt and lauched at everyone else! I got Kendall from daycare and we went home. We did homework and ate dinner and then got her ready to go trick-or-treating. She was a zombie cheerleader and I must admit that I did an AMAZING job :) I didn't make the costume, but I put it all together and did her face and hair! She LOVED it and so did everyone who saw her. It is so funny because she is SO beyond little kid costumes. She LOVED being spooky. I love that she loves Halloween too! We went trick-or-treating with some friends. I have been friends with them since 2003 - long before KJ was in the picture and when their now 5th grader was only 1. Time FLIES!!! The girls LOVE each other. It was a tad awkward becuase I kind of stopped being friends with them back in 2008. It wasn't my choice, it just happened. Well, last spring my ex and this couple started becoming friends again because they always saw each other at the fields...well, he is friends with them again...I am not really. It wasn't TOO bad, just different...when we got to the ex's house, he had a flat. we had to wait for him to fix that. After that we were on our way...Here is my spooky girl!!!

Tonight is the CHAMPIONSHIP game!!!!!! I really think we can win!!!!! I will update tomorrow! Hope everyone had a super fin Halloween!!! I know I did! Now on to Thanksgiving and CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!

Remember...My best days are ahead of me!!
