Just another day

It's been a long week. I cant believe its Thursday already. Time is flying by us. I have gone to the gym 2 mornings in a roll to work out. I'm not a great morning person so getting up before 5am has been a struggle. I do feel better afterwards though. I have had some allergy issues come up. I'm feeling rather lousy. I go today for what I thought was a kidney infection but has turned in to something else....so they are ordering an ultrasound on me to see what is going on...say a prayer...I hate having any medical thing going on with me.
Today we are headed to Pre School and running errands, Miller is going to moms after school so I can head to the hospital and then grab Madison. We Back to School Night tonight...so its gonna be a long day.
I'm off to water flowers....I hope you all have a great day.

Just another day in paradise!

So....I havent blogged much this week. It got crazy. Here is what has happened.

*Saturday the air unit went out...so we had to get it replaced. It's cool again. I did a happy dance. We moved in with my parents over the weekend due to our home was at 90 degrees. It was the hottest weekend we have had this year...good times I tell ya!

* Scott was in a golf tournament all weekend so we did cocktail parties and dinners...and it was difficult to get ready at moms and rearrange life to get there.

* Madison was introduced Saturday afternoon in 100 degree weather as a 7th grade cheerleader...you could see the happiness glowing off her momma. I'm so proud of her. They cheered their first game Tuesday night and they did an awesome job.

* I have cooked for two families this week amongst all the havoc. Why you ask? Because that is what I do. I have some friends in between homes and stress of life so she picked up her meal last night..another friend who's husband is very sick....enough said...they need food. If I can cook for people so they dont have to think about it...I'm on it. I love it.

*Had some pool days with some friends and Miller. This has been the relaxing part of the week. Laying by the pool while the kids play. NICE.

* Today..............a day to myself...what am I doing? Got some phone calls to make in peace. Run a few little errands, and lunch with some amazing gal pals....you know the ones that laugh with you and enjoy you??? Then I'm heading home...to clean the house a little and start planning a great little gig at our home. I will tell you more about it later....it will be so much fun.

Fall is coming up, football games, hayrides, little gal pal trips, I cant wait. Life is looking great. I love my family, I love my God, I love my friends.
I hope you all have a great Thursday!

It's Friday!


For more Favorite things go visit Suzanne over at Living to tell the story....

1. The first day of school. I was not sad for Madison going back. I'm ready for structure and schedules. I did a happy dance once she was dropped off. I really did!

2. Swimming alot the last couple of days. We love to swim. We have decided to go ahead and put a pool in next year. That is all my family loves to do in the summer time.

3. Fresh cut flowers from my neighbor. She has a beautiful flower garden. She cuts me fresh flowers at least once a week in the summer time and brings them to me....it makes me smile...in return I bake her lots of sweet treats! She is great to me.

4. America's Got Talent. We are watching this as a family. And loving it. We have laughed so much. One of the finalist the chicken farmer from Mayfield lives 20 minutes from my town....go chicken Farmer....we voted alot for him the other night.

5. Taking food to friends. I enjoy taking a meal to friends. I do it at least once a week. I do. I'm not bragging...just laying it out. I love my friends and this way I can show them with food.

Good Morning.

Good Morning. We went and registered Madison yesterday for 7th grade. Can you believe that? We were in and out in 40 minutes and $125 later...that does not include $80 worth of school supplies and $300 back to school clothes......good grief.

After breaking the news to poor Scott we headed home...we didnt have anymore money...lol.
I made Salisbury Steak last night and it was really good. We told Miller it was a Crabby Patty off of Spongebob and he ate 2.

Today we are hitting the movies and the park. Dinner tonight is Mexican lasagna. Yum!

I hope you are doing well this week. School starts back on thursday, and me and Madison are spending the day together tomorrow....
