He's a good kid and NEVER gets in trouble at school, but it's just the thinking that it's not "cool to have your mom around," especially when you're a tough, old third grader. I told my wife she should give him a big ol' kiss every morning and refer to him as "baby boy" or something (just kidding, that would be mean). But it's such wonderful news and we're very excited...answered prayer!

I hope you all are doing great. Late July has returned to the Sooner State and it's hot here! Only going to be hotter, back to normal, and we'll be pushing 100 before the week's end!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!
Congrats to her!!!

Wish me luck!

I hope y'all have a great day!

Good luck!!!

Don't you just love the fact that your picture is on the license, but it has expired so it can't be you.

"Sorry sir, that license expired a few days ago, that picture stopped being you on the same day."


"NEXT!!!"

Good afternoon,

It has been a lazy day, after mowing the lawn of course. Even though it was in the 70's when I mowed, I still got my usual headache from being in the heat. I took a short nap to get rid of it. Then it was ice cream time!!!!
I have been yawning a lot today, it is the first day since school ended last month that we have not really done much.


I hope your having a great day!!!

Thank you! LittleCS's ankle will need therapy twice a week, she can however dump the crutches and get rid of the air cast. She would jump for joy, but that would hurt to much. LOL She has a bunch of exercises to do just so she does not get board.
