FOR TODAY, September 24, 2010
Outside my window.... I see the sun beginning to go behind the mountain. It's a cool GORGEOUS fall day.
I am thinking... that I need some sleep. My sister and I have been running around and enjoying whatever time we have (6 days to be exact). I am also thinking that I forgot my daughter at Volleyball Practice and must run to get her! Whoops! Be back in a minute.
I am thankful for... this amazing fall weather, my visit with my sister, my husband made our anniversary plans. Go Broncos! Yep.. the plans include a Broncos game. Yeah us!
From the learning rooms.. ummm... plastic surgery isn't cheap and the roll on my back that I hate seeing in pictures or under my clothes near my B*a line are a gift from my mother. I feel good to know it's age. I feel bad to know it's age.
From the kitchen... my sister is making garlic mashers to compliment our dinner. My husband is smoking chicken. Yummy. Grapes are oh so tasty right now. Can't get enough of them.
I am wearing... Calvin Klein jeans.. my favorite jeans, my gray sweatshirt with Breathe written on it and blue flip flops. So happy to still be in flip flops!
I am creating... nothing at the moment. I don't create.
I am reading... fellow bloggers, Facebook too much, and school websites for my classes.
I am going... to eat a scrumptious meal, eat cake, watch a Prince of Persia with my family and sleep in. Thank you Ambien.
I am hoping... for a miracle amount of money. Hey, it never hurts to hope!
I am hearing... Angelina's little voice, a volleyball hitting the ground outside, my sister finishing up the potatoes and Terrell coaching Lina on her serve.
Around the house... my fall decor is out. I love rust, green, yellow, and orange in September.
A picture worth sharing..

My niece came just to see me this weekend. She brought her parents along for the ride. :) Hi Annabel! It was great to have Rob and Joanna make the effort to drive up.... with a three day old baby.
We were headed to the Craggs or is it Kraggs? on our way home but found our way to Cripple Creek instead. I am so glad we went 'cause the colors were so much brighter here. We ate at a small mom and pop restaurant, enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. The owners of this place lost their home in Katrina a few years back.

I don't like being a B and living the life of an A. I'm tired. This pictures describes my mind each day. I get up and BAM.. schedules, errands, new errands present themselves, school work, emails, job emails and work, hope to plan a meal, hope to make a bed, hope to get chores done, hope to be nice in the process. I couldn't stand my shower anymore yesterday and scrubbed it. Not that there was time, mind you, with this new lifestyle I am living but you gotta do what you gotta do. I laugh when some one says, "Hey did you see so-in-so on the TV?" Really? This too shall pass, so I'm told. Come November 1, I will be one plate less. Boo will be an official driver! I know she is excited about that day. Come December 18th, when I graduate from college, I will be one plate less. I know I'm excited about that day! So that's 2 plates. I can do this. I know I can. I keep clinging to the words of Jesus and hoping Martha goes away soon and I find my Mary again. I also keep hopin' my kids like me when they leave home. :) Not sure I like me right now. Bark. Bark.
Ok.. Time to go spin some more plates. Smile. That's right.
