Weekend Work-Out

I had planned to take the girls to visit my parents this weekend, but our plans fell through. I woke up Friday morning, with the beginnings of a cold. By late afternoon I felt horrible and was sneezing like crazy. My nose was so stopped up I was miserable. I KNEW with everything my Dad has been through he did not need me to bring him a cold. We just stayed home this weekend and I spent two days in the bed. We were so disappointed not to see my parents. Steve was Mr. Mom and he did a great job. I also got some sort of stomach bug during the night Saturday. I am not sure if it was a virus or an overdose on NyQuil and Cold-eese. I am thrilled to say I feel fine now!
I walked into the living room Saturday and found the girls doing a work-out with Steve. They were doing P 90X. They were trying hard to keep up with their Daddy. I wish I could say I work out with them, but I would rather wear my pink robe and take pictures.

I took the girls to see Dolphin Tale today. That is one great movie! My girls loved it! The pelican made me a little nervous, but I acted mature.

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.
