Hi y'all! How is everyone? I am doing fine. I do not have much time to blog but I would love to get back into it. I have been working a full time job, going to school to be a high school math teacher, running after those crazy kids of mine, two of which are working now, cleaning, cooking, blah, blah, blah. I just wanted to stop in and say hello and I would love to hear from you all (if anyone still reads my posts, since it has been sooooo long). Have a good night.

new puppies and new cell phones

So this post is about new puppies. They are so cute and cuddly. Draven got one, a pretty lil red bone to take hunting (courtesy of papaw Jay). The names lady. She is really pretty with her big long ears and all her wrinkles. But there is a catch with new puppies. They have small bladders and no matter how long they are outside they wanna pee or poo as soon as they come in. I can clean that up and keep working with her so that will be ok. She also makes a huge mess with her food. she can not eat it out of the bowl, she had to dump it all on the floor first, again its ok i can clean that too. However, this morning my brand new cell was dieing and went to plug it up. Oh but no, lady had chewed the end off of my charger. I had to hunt tools and duck tape just to fix my phone. New puppies and cell phones do not mix!

Long time no type

Well where do I start???? I took a long break from blogging. With three kids, a hubby, a house, a part time job, its been CRAZY. Running here, doing this taking one youngin here and another one there, being in two places at one time it gets hectic. Its hard to really get anything done. Laundry is the worst. You know somedays I just want to be the laundry queen, you know the girl who has all the laundry finished sitting on the sofa reading a book, but no who am I? The laundry loser with the bottomless basket lol. I tell you its never done.
I am still in church and love my church family more now than I ever have. I help with the youth (chior, sunday school, wendsday night services). Those kids are precious. I get such a blessing out of them. They are so eager to do God's will. They can sign the song Jesus and are so good with it. Our little church is growing so fast and its wonderful to see how God can move!
My life is wonderful and full. I am still with Daniel, almost fourteen years now. Agggg I am also the mother of a teen age boy, yep thats right Draven is thirteen now. It doesnt seen possible, I can remember picking him up and playing with him, now he picks me up and slings me around. Kirkland is doing great, he is so handsom, even though he wont admit it, he quiet the lady killer. Not so sure if thats good or not. He is 10 and its older girls that he seems to attract, but dont mention a girl to his, girls are still gross. Grayson will be 8 before long, January 26, he can not wiat. He wants a Wii and a drum set and about a million other things to go with it that mommy cant afford. Oh well hes a kid right.
I am going to go for now. Its late and Daniel was in bed an hour ago.
God Bless you guys!

Well howdy how are you all today? I am good sleepy, but good. I am not going to be coaching the cheer squad, but that is ok. There may be days that Daniel has to take Grayson and I can not make practice. My Kirk starts middle school this year. We had orientation last night. I think he will like it. Grayson is the only one in the primary school this year. I dread this year for Grayson really bad. One of his teachers name is Ms. Perry. I have known her for years and years, we used to stay the night with each other when we were little. She is a little bit younger than me. You would think that this would make me confident that all will be well with Grayson this year, but it don't. She is strict, can be hateful, and mean. We will go round I am afraid. Our primary school is very strict anyway, almost like a prison. It stinks, but maybe we will be ok! Has school started back where you are yet? It starts on the 15th here. I am dreadin it. I have to go now, got to get breakfast. I will talk to you all later though. Take care

Mommys quiet spot????

I think I need to change the title of my blog. Mommys quiet spot just does not fit my life anymore. I have no quiet spot, no quiet time on the computer, the only mommy time I get is when I go over to Hopes house. Summer has been crazy. We went to Washington Dc and then on to New Jersey around the fourth of July. The kids stayed in New Jersey for about two weeks after we left. My mother in law and sister in law brought them home and stayed for about a week with us. We had a nice visit. Last week Draven had band camp from 4-8 three nights, this week he is going 8-3 all week this week. School is getting ready to start back, but instead of things slowing down and getting back to normal, they are only getting more hectic and chaotic. YAHHHH cant wait. So anyway, we have Grayson playing little league football and Draven starting high school marching band, even though he is only in the seventh grade. Grayson will practice Tues and Thurs. Games on Sat. Draven will have to be present for all high school ball games which start on Aug. 22nd. So we will have ball on Tues, Thurs, Fri and Sat. Church is Wends and Sun. I have a total of one free day a week for the next 3 months or so. Also Daniel will be home this year for Grayson. He did not get to see him very much last season because he worked second shift and most of the games and things were at night. This is good because he can do with Grayson. I was a cheerleader in school and I always wanted a little girl. I did not get one though. I wanted to do pageants and coach cheer leading. Having all boys this is hard. Thank God he gave me a rent-a-girl, which is my sister salena.

She is 11 years old. This year I have signed up to coach her cheer squad. I will find out tonight if I get to or not.
I did get to do some fun stuff this summer though. I went with my sister, my brothers girl friend and my sister in law to a new store in Kingsport. We all got make overs and shopped until we dropped. LOL. Last night my brothers gf went shopping for her sister a wedding gift. I was exhausted by the time we got home!
I hope everyone is doing well and this post finds all happy and blessed!

This is one of the funniest things I have ever seen!

Friday, May 30, 2008


Thank you all for your advice and I quit today. I know i need the money, but its actually just mad money Daniel does very well providing for us. We can make it on his income. I just have to plan on making it with his income. I actually sent her a text. I know what you are thinking, how mean and how gutless, but let me explain here. When I call her she does not answer either phone nor will she return my calls, this has been going on since I started keeping the kids. Tuesday when i was supposed to keep them, I got a text 20 mins before they were supposed to come saying that she would not be bringing them. Today I did not even get that. No call, no text. I told her in the text that I would not be able to keep her kids anymore because I needed to know when I work, because I depend on the income and also i need to be able to plan things with my family. So far, I have not heard a thing from her yet. Oh well. Daniel is cool with it, he does not blame me at all. If I wanted to be this stressed, I would go out into the work force and find a job outside the home. I then would also have the added stress of finding a sitter myself. So its back to pinching pennies. I want to thank you all again for all your support and advice. Love you guys!!
