A Late "Hello!"
We all have the sniffles and the coughs...
The kids were out of school yesterday for Veteran's Day...
The weekend was sort of a bust...
Which all led to me taking until right now, on a Tuesday morning, to write and submit a post. So...sorry!!!
But now that it's Tuesday, we're ready to roll again!
This past weekend really was sort of a bust, with my Crimson Tide losing to Mississippi State (the "real" football team just better show up in two weeks for our annual slugest rivalry with Auburn) and Delaney's softball team going 0-4 in its tournament (every team we played was so much bigger and older than us and we actually played tight with three of them, but still...ugh!), and then with Scout and I coming down with this yucky crap that goes from your head to your nose to your throat to your chest. The bright spot was that McKenna's high school football team won their first state playoff round and now we're ready to play Hoover this coming Friday. It will be a HUGE game!
That' s just one thing we're looking forward to this week. The OTHER big thing is Delaney's middle school pageant on Thursday. We got her dress on Saturday and it is SO pretty; tonight we are practicing with a friend who was actually Miss Alabama Junior Miss back in her day; and then Thursday is the big day. Delaney has become VERY nervous about it, so I'm just praying that she has a good time with it!
(I'm actually NOT a fan of beauty pageants, because what have I always preached to my girls? That beauty is on the inside and that you judge a person by their character and not what they look like. I know, I know!! But, McKenna had so much fun doing it when she was in middle school because she got to go dress up and have her hair and makeup done. So, of course, Delaney wanted to do it. But, you all know that Delaney is my ultra-competitive child, so now she has herself stressed out over it because she wants to do well. I told her to please do it for fun and to enjoy the night, and not get worked up over it. I just hope we survive... LOL)
So...a busy week up ahead and lots to look forward to! (After the pageant and the football game, Delaney has a math tournament this coming weekend and then we're out for a whole WEEK for Thanksgiving!!! Yay for that!)
Well...I guess that post developed into my Random Tuesday post for today. Just a lot of random "this is what's going on in our lives right now." I promise that next Tuesday will be a much better one!
So, for your Random Tuesday contribution this morning, why don't you just tell me what's going on with you these days? What are you looking forward to within the next week?
(And now, how about a totally random picture just because? Yep, it's one of Scout. Here she is showing you one of her new shirts. And, yes, it says "I'm the boss." And, yes, it's probably a shirt I should never buy a child because it gives them too much perceived power. But, yes, she can tell you exactly what it says!!
Have a GOOD one!!
