Random Catch-up....Time Flies

Wow. I just noticed that I haven't posted since Wednesday. Golly. I didn't know I had been away that long.

Let me fill you in on what's been going on around these parts...everything is pretty random, so I'm apologizing ahead of time for all my subject-hopping and rabbit-chasing.

Baseball is over. I'm so sad. I think that other people on the team were anxiously anticipating the end of the fall season, but not me. I love everything about it. I even love the busy evenings that baseball brings. So, on Thursday night, when all the other parents were giggling to themselves about no more baseball, I was quietly wiping away the tears. Not really, but I was still bummed out. What is my family supposed to do now? Good thing we have the batting cage...

Here is our baseball team (Keaton and Sawyer are the ones with the eye patches...very professional aren't they?!?!)

Soccer games got rained out Saturday morning. As thrilling as that sounds, I was already dragged out of bed and to the field before finding out. So, if I'm already there, then I want the kids to play. Oh well. Just felt like the morning was wasted. I'm not nearly as enthralled with soccer as I am baseball, but I still like to watch the kiddos play...kinda bummed about that, too.

Now that I'm coming across as a crazy sports fanatic bleacher mom...time to move on...

Since soccer was done for because of the weather, and we were already dressed...we headed to Hot Springs. We spent 2 HOURS in Lowe's. Ugh. I get as excited about home improvement as the next guy, but 2 hours was a bit much. Kirk had a list as long as Christmas, and we went up and down every aisle (no kidding!) checking stuff off the list and pitching stuff in the buggy. He had decided that it was time to work on all the little odd jobs around the house now that we are free from baseball (I'm still sad). $200 later, we were able to leave. I'm not complaining though, because now all the bathroom faucets have been replaced, the leaky faucet in the shower is fixed, we have new locks on our doors, and I have a new light in my bathroom. I love that Kirk is handy...I'm not sure what people do when their husband is not.

After dragging me through Lowe's for half the morning, Kirk did let me go to Hobby Lobby. I have a new project that I'm working on and I needed to pick up some "stuff." I'll be filling you in much more on my new "thing" in some later posts. I'm still trying to figure out all the ins and outs of starting up a tiny home-based business, but when I do...I'll let you know!! :)

Sunday was a great day of worship and fellowship. We love our church so much. We moved churches about a year ago after feeling the Lord's leading to do so, and we are so happy. It was my turn to cook for our small group last night, so all yesterday afternoon I stirred chili and baked cornbread (the cornbread didn't take all afternoon, but you know what I mean!). Yummy!
And now to today...I got all the way to school this morning only to discover that Tate was sick. I swear he seemed fine when we left the house! He and I turned around and came back home. So, although I've got a sick one, I can't say that I'm too sad about the day at home to play catch-up on housework. I'm so behind on all of it, that I know most of my day is going to be spent scrubbing, dusting, vacuuming, and washing. I need to change the sheets, too. Yuck. That has to be my least favorite chore. I don't know why I hate it so much. I'd rather scrub toilets than change sheets. Weird.

Better get going...

Oh No! I just remembered that I forgot to tell you about the skunk! That one deserves a whole post all to itself...look for it! Kirk is now known as the Mighty Skunk Hunter around our house!

Don't leave me hangin'. I need to know about the skunk!

Hope Tate feels better. We got Hayley started on antibiotics today but she'll still miss at least one more day of school.

I hope Tate is feeling better...glad you had a day at home. Ummm, I'm one of those women who has a very un-handy husband. He knows it and is fine to just pay someone to fix whatever needs fixing. :)
