I Don't Know Much to Say

Sometimes when I talk to my Mother on the phone, we will get to end of our conversation and she will say, I don't know anything else, if you want me to tell you something, I will just have to make it up."
That is how I feel this week. Last week was very stressful, this week is calm. But, I have done some crazy things this week. I forgot Emily's lunch for school one day and I forgot SK's lunch the next day.
I registered Emily for kindergarten at her school today. I can't believe it is almost time for her to start kindergarten.
I took down Sarah Kate's changing table on Saturday and she cried and cried for us to put it back up. I may put it back in there. I miss it, she misses it. I may be on TLC's"My Strange Addiction-changing tables. Kelly told me that I may have SK on the changing table till she is 12.
I want some kind of furniture to go in the changing table's place. Her room looks bare and I need something to hold all the toys and mess she has. I want a small cabinet/ shelves/ drawers to keep things. I want space on top to put some frames and things like that. I have stared and stared and stared and stared at two pieces on furniture at antique stores today. They are at two different stores so I had to go back and forth. I need to sleep over them tonight before I make a decision. I don't care about color, because I plan to paint whatever I get.

That is about all that is going on around here. I guess that is a good thing!

Oh! Can't wait to see which piece of furniture you choose! It's so fun to get new pieces. I want a buffet or sideboard to go in the living room to hold "stuff" that just needs a home. Like all of the fifty thousand pieces of crystal that I got when I married that, I'll be honest, are pretty useless. But I hate to get rid of them. My husband responds to that with "'re going to spend several hundred dollars on a piece of furniture to store something you don't want???!!!" ha! Yep, that's about right.

Kindergarten is big stuff!! I am registering my middle son for kindergarten next week. I cannot believe it!! I am pretty sad about it. Thank goodness I will still have one baby at home or heaven help my hubby. ;)
Your mom sounds precious!!
Can't wait to see what takes the changing table's place. =)

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
