Saturday was pretty much your typical day, but I swapped Bailey for Scott in my grocery shopping endeavors.
I don't think she appreciates my method.
"Why don't you put your list in order?"
"Why don't you mark your things off?"
"I HAVE A PEN!!!"
But the day ended with grilled hamburgers, so I can't complain.
My baby mama made the paper!!
Monday was a typical Monday.
Laura had a mop on her head...
Lily showed off her dance moves...
And Jamie tells it like it is-
On this Tuesday, I would like to introduce to you my friend Josh Box. We met over ten years ago living in these tiny apartments in Alabama. Josh is...unique. I have watched him shove fire crackers down his pants and take off. During a hurricane he got in a tub and floated around the parking lot. He also loves Kobe Bryant, so I will stop there.
Anyway, he finds all of these abandoned places and takes the most amazing pictures.
I messaged him the other day, "Dude, my blog is boring, can I use some of your pics?"
And he was like "DUUUUUDE, sure".
He has hundreds of pics, so I am just going to share a few at a time, so I can stretch it :)
I could not for the life of me go to sleep on Tuesday night. Finally, at the tail end of midnight I dozed off.
Only to be woken up at 5:12am by my phone ringing.
It was work....I had to go in.
So I rush to the bathroom, brush my teeth, face, pull my hair back in a ponytail, throw on the least wrinkled thing I found, grabbed my makeup bag, purse, laptop, and keys, and take off.
Apologies to the jogger I scared to death on our road. You should be sleeping anyway.
I fly into work, circle the building, park in a handicap spot, dump my bags on my desk, sprint into the kitchen, and....
everything was fine. I just stare, slump, and say "I'll be in my office'.
We received literature on how to perk up children's stays. Forming the towels into animals was one of the suggestions. I didn't even read it, I knew I couldn't do it. BUT!!! Ariel-Marie and Laura gave it a whirl:
And the final result?
Despite drinking an energy drink, a can of Dt. Mtn. Dew, and a Dt. Dr. Pepper, around noon I couldn't stay awake.
After spending a good 20 seconds trying to turn off a light that was indeed already off, around 2pm I called it quits.
While driving home, the phone rang, and I answered, then I killed my car and realized I had driven to my mother's house and not home.
Meh, I just went with it.
I did however go home shortly and lay down.
I didn't sleep though........
Little Texas released their new video, "Slow Ride Home"
It's a wonderful song about a Fallen Soldier.
Slow Ride Home
Thursday was a rare off day. I slept in until 9:30 or so, showered, then went to my Mother's.
We picked Bailey up from work (gasp!), then dropped off Mother's car to get something or another fixed.
You want to know the best part about this day? Forget the sister/Mother bonding time, when we were vacuuming out my car, I found a case of Honey Buns! I remember now having to give someone a ride, and I didn't want them to know that I was the type of person that purchased Honey Buns by the case, so I stuck them under my back seat.
When I attempt to go to sleep at night, I KNOW better than to reach for my phone or Kindle, because when I do, I am almost asleep when I make discoveries.
Apparently there is a thing that exists called an Alligator Gar.
IT'S A FISH!
HERE is the link for the full article. I read where they normally don't share pictures of Alligator Gar because people kill them for sport, but this was a rare occasion, it was caught in a net.
I put in over 10 hours of work today. It was alright. Usually when I work on a Friday, something bad always happens, but this was gravy.
Krystin brought Justin by today. He is growing up so fast! And he never stops moving!!!
When Scott walked by (also chubby cheeked and bald), I said look Justin, it's your daddy!
And Justin reached for him.
I am concerned.......
If you want me to go SQUEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
Just have Chad Prather retweet or favorite something that I tweet.
This is the video I was referring to.
Stop Getting Offended
Pictures that I stole from SnapChat
So tomorrow is the Fourth of July.
This is just a bittersweet time of the year for me.
I will leave you this week with one of my favorite pictures that I saw online.
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
