Week 3 of the Crazy

Wasn't so crazy. 

Saturday morning were pictures for soccer and football. When we got home, I was a woman on a mission. I painted the ceiling in the 1/2 bathroom and another coat of paint on the walls. The toilet has been reinstalled but 2 walls still need to be planked. I'm hoping he finishes it up this weekend.

Saturday evening's football game was in an undesirable area so Boo and I didn't go. I watched The Fault in Our Stars. Target made me buy the DVD. 

It was totally worth it.

Skipping the game turned out to be a good thing because the team got slaughtered.

Sunday morning we had lacrosse but no soccer game. My father is up from Florida so he spent the afternoon with us and we enjoyed a homemade lasagna and garlic bread for dinner.

It was delicious.

Monday was a glorious day off from work. The weather was sunny and chilly - my idea of perfect weather. I spent the day running some errands and finalizing from 10th birthday plans for my Boo. Double digits are coming up fast. It's bitter sweet.

Overheard in My Kitchen

Life with boys:

Bud, what is all this white gunk in your backpack?

"Oh yeah, my deodorant exploded the other day"

When were you planning on mentioning this?

"You didn't ask"

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

And later on, this from Boo:

"Mom, I want to do experiments!"

With what?

"FIRE!"  (he says with too much enthusiasm)

Um, you just earned yourself a 24 hour a day sitter.

"Moooom!! I just want to do science experiments."

Can't you just wait until you have Chemistry class in high school?!

Week 2 of the Crazy

So sadly, I just realized how much I've been ignoring this blog. Life gets in the way, I guess.

The most amazing thing happened last Saturday night ... at half time, our team was losing 40-19 and it was a safe bet the second half was going to be awful. Would you believe me if I told you we tied the game at 46-46 in the final minute?

We did.

Would you believe me if I told you we ended up winning the game in overtime, 52-46?

WE DID!!  It was THE BEST second half of a football game I've ever seen!

Boo's soccer team also had great success on Sunday against a team that was supposed to be really good. They weren't a bad team but I don't see what all the stress was about ... we won convincingly by a score of 3-0.

Once again we had the way-too-early lacrosse game on Sunday morning ... it was a blow out. Our team was actually trying NOT to score. It was 18-0 by the end.

One day soon I'll have more to share. I hope?

New heat & air was installed yesterday. Just in time too because apparently I have seasonal allergies and I was on the verge of death! I really do like to open the windows on a cool night but I also like breathing ... decisions, decisions.
