Good Monday Morning!
(A Random Recap and Some--well, Random--Photos!!)
Sounds like a random kind of day, huh?
It's 7:20 am and I'm trying to get myself to be an "Up and At Em" kind of girl this morning, but it's kinda hard. Delaney is in bed, feeling the after-effects of a sick-y day yesterday (after church, she came home and pretty much moped around all afternoon, missed softball practice, and felt all-around sickly and yucky); McKenna is getting ready for school. And, me? I'm still trying to wake up!!! I do NOT like Monday mornings, that's for sure!
How about a morning recap of the weekend activities?
Let's see. The highlights include . . . tacky fashion shows, kisses from the hubby, musical performances, basketball, football, and a lot of just normal, everyday, cleaning and laughing and eating and reading and surfing (Web, that is--I WISH I was at a beach) and talking.
Some details, you say? The tacky fashion show came Friday night while Jaelyn spent the night with Delaney. Delaney was itching for someone to come spend the night in her new room and Jaelyn was her first invite. Whenever a friend stays with Delaney, the night eventually evolves into involving a tacky fashion show (find the tackiest clothes in Delaney's dresser and closet and wear them in as tacky a manner as possible, then get judged by whatever judges are around--usually that means me!)
The kisses from hubby came with Date Night on Saturday. Yay!! We went to Chili's with a gift card we still had from Christmas from Mom and Dad. So nice to get to go out with Gary, have grown-up talk without the children, eat some good food, drink some good drinks, and steal a few kisses. Nice!
The musical performance came when we arrived home from dinner. The girls had prepared a musical show with "Hannah Montana" and "Cheetah Girls" songs--using Delaney's new "stage" in her room. It looks like McKenna was choreographing and doing the lead singing, with Delaney right behind her. Sydney would not be outdone and was singing and dancing along with them. It was priceless!!
Basketball came in the form of a Alabama victory (after being down to Georgia at one time 18-2, we came back and won on a last-second shot. It was the only time we were ever ahead in the game! Woosh!). Football came with the NFL playoffs and ONE of my teams won. I was sad to see New Orleans go down--I was really cheering for them for all the sentimental reason. But was so glad to see Payton Manning and the Colts finally make it to the Super Bowl and their win yesterday over the Pats was one of the greatest comebacks ever. Down 21-3 at one time, they came back to win with a minute to go in the game. Really exciting!
And then you know about all the other NORMAL stuff I mentioned!
This week is shaping up to be a busy, busy one!! I have four articles to write by Friday (Thank Goodness some assignments came in) and I have my journaling class tomorrow night. Busy is good, though!
(And now for a few photos--of Delaney and Jaelyn in all of their "tacky" glory!! LOL)
(those were Sydney's feet in mis-matched shoes. She had to get involved, of course!)
And I did say that this was a Random post today, didn't I? So, I had to pop one more photo in here before I leave. Our cats Midnight and Chit Chat love to sit and stare longingly out the sliding glass door in our dining room. Because it's been so cold lately, that's really all they do--stare longingly--because they don't dare go outside. I wanted a pic of them sitting there and right before I clicked the button, Midnight turned around and looked at me!
Well, it's time to take McKenna to school. Hope your Monday is great!
