Coffee Confrontation

Let me start off by saying I always make the coffee! But this morning the animals were all hungry and made me fall behind schedule. I walk back into the kitchen and HORROR OF HORRORS Shannon is making the coffee. Now this would be fine except I hid the box of Little Debbie chocolate cupcakes right above the coffee filters. I'm watching it all unfold
in slow was too late to stop him......the cabinet opens.....he reaches up and I see him pause.....he tilts the open box of cupcakes forward and one.....the very last one (oh, the shame) slides forward.....
but I wasn't quite shamed enough not to be thinking, oh please don't eat
the last one. His skinny self pushes it back into the box and turns to
me and says "I won't eat your last one" with a smirk on his face...and
he says "who were you hiding these from?" and he laughed. Meanwhile,
my brain is frantically trying to come up with a reason that they are hidden and a reason that they are all gone but one. Not able to come up with a good reason I decide to just be indignant so all I said was "HMMPH!" and turned and stomped off and turned right back around and walked past him and took the last cupcake and stomped back past him.............and as I
walked away I heard him laughing. The NERVE OF HIM!! ‪#‎butthecupcakewassogoodwithmycoffee‬

Back In Business

Well I'm back in business!!

My boys called and one is sick and one is hungry!

God always knows what I need!

I made homemade vegetable soup that I canned last year and fajitas with

homemade salsa!

Dr. Jekyll and Mister Hyde

Well I was going to share with y'all some pretty photos of the scenery that I got to see on my way to

move college kid home (for the final time) from Tuscaloosa.

But I am in a really crappy mood today and instead of  saying beautiful things about life

and the beauty of nature this is what you get.

This is a beautiful photo of blue skies, green grass and a dead tree......yep just like life.

stupid dead tree...

Oh and here I am....dead tree and broken limb....

What is wrong with me?

I don't know.....I wasn't prepared for the emotions of  moving college kid for the last time.

And I didn't move him home... he went to live with his brother...which is right down the road so

I don't know why I'm sad about this.

I would be twice as sad if he stayed in college forever.... so what do I want?

I don't like change.

Are you like that?

Any big change just shakes me up.

And change is ALL that we have had lately.

(it's a good thing you don't have sound or you would here a woman blowing her horn at me
because I was drifting into her lane while taking this photo.......I know.....shame on me.)

But I was desperate to get this photo for the LAST time.....which is so's not like I'm never

going to Tuscaloosa again!

What is wrong with me?

This is what you want for your children.

To grow up and be normal, healthy adults that can thrive on their own.

But part of me is thinking  "they are growing up and thriving on their own!!!

(thriving may be stretching kid still needs a job...Masters Degree in Sports Management in case you have connections with a college or Pro team that needs to hire someone..:)

Why are my insides churning and my heart aching?

And so I load these beautiful images and I think...

Beautiful fences..............stupid garbage can.

I apologize for this mood.

Wouldn't it have been nice to tranquilly enjoy these photos without a crazy woman ranting

about kids and a life that has been wonderful to her?

Sakes best be getting in that Bible.....that's what you need!

It is.....what I need.

I'll be better tomorrow.....I promise.

Okay.....let's say something great here.

Beautiful red skies.....

just don't drift and get hit by that 18 wheeler....

That was terrible Lisa!!!

Try again....

Look at the pretty hay.....

all lined up and ready to go......

just like my boys...


Oh well....

today is not going to work.

I'll be better tomorrow....

if the Lord's willing and the creek don't rise.

Dear me....

you better leave now.....before some of this mess gets on you....:)

Have a great weekend....

no....I really mean it...:)

Naps, NOLA, Beach, Birthdays and Girlfriends

 I'm going to try and catch you up on what's been happening around here.

Some of us have been busy, busy.......some of us still nap.

Hubby and I made a quick trip to NOLA to see some friends of ours.

This was the pic I sent to her to prove we were on our way.

Eek!!  I probably scared her to death! 
#puffyeyes  #nomakeup  #fangs

And when I say a quick trip.....we left on Tuesday around lunch and got up Wednesday

morning at 5:30 to head back home.

Sunrise over New Orleans....

The Super Dome

Lake Pontchartrain

Then on the weekend we went to the beach where my brother lives

and had an early birthday celebration for my mom.

There are several different routes to take to the beach and I took the tunnel route.

Big mistake.....

Saw this sign while out shopping.....

So true...

Then on Monday I was to go out with my girl friends!

Since my mirror in my bathroom tells me lies...

"Oh you look great Lisa"

"you don't look fat at all Lisa"

"have you lost weight Lisa?"

I have to take a photo of myself with my camera and then look at myself

to make the best decision on what to wear.

Really just to pick out the least horrible outfit....uggg

Because I am stupid enough to have chosen these beautiful girls as my friends!

What was I thinking?!!!!!

And there were three others just that gorgeous that I didn't have a photo of.

I would dump them all if I didn't love them so...

I then get depressed and the next morning eat Little Debbie cakes with my coffee.

It's a vicious cycle....

Well I think I caught you up on my shenanigans....

No wait....

Last night hubby and I were on the couch and I said to him...

"I told my friends you were going to get me a henway for my birthday."

He said..."huh?"

I said "you know a are going to get me one for my birthday."

He said.."what the heck's a henway?"

I said  "about 2 pounds!!"



I hope you, my fabulous blog girlfriends, have a wonderful week!!!!
