Sic ’em Bears!

I still don’t have a lot to say. I’m tired these days. I’m trying to be a better steward of my time and get up earlier so that I can get all the things done during the day. I’ve been up since 5:00 this morning, but I’ve gotten a ton done. I did several loads of laundry (I even folded and put them away – shocker!), cleaned both bathrooms (including tubs), windexed the mirrors in our bedroom because someone’s sticky, syrupy hands left a lovely little imprint (I’m not gonna tell you that it’s been there for a couple of weeks now). I tell you what, I deserve a friggin’ trophy for all I’ve done today. Yeah! (I have to motivate myself to keep up this kind of daily pace)

A friend came over to paint the new kitchen island that we built because when it comes to painting Lee and I pretty much stink. Seriously, a band of monkeys on a sugar high could probably paint a wall better than Lee and I. So, while our four kids wreaked havoc on house, I walked behind them and reorganized closets and cabinets. Pulled out more toys for next week’s garage sale and fielded calls from people wanting to buy the items I posted on Craig’s List at 5:45 this morning. (I just sold an old desk that’s been sitting in our basement for five years – I love Craig’s List!) All in all, it was a good day.

So here is a recent picture of my Landon givin’ a big shout out to my Alma Mater. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Sic ’em Bears! (To all you Baylor Alum out there, I fully expect you to pull your bear paw out while reading this.)


  1. I know all about being tired, I am so dragging today!! Craig’s list is awesome, Cory uses it all the time to sell stuff he actually got Carol using it for awhile too I think you could find someone to pretty much anything!
    Great pics of Landon he is getting so big! Claire wanted to play with Tia so badly both yesterday and today, maybe we can get together tomorrow??

  2. See how tired I am not even making sense in my comment. I meant to say I think you could find someone to buy pretty much anything, sheesh!

  3. Still not making sense, man I give up!

    Julie, you got Kelli so excited about having 3 comments, I’m sure, and they were all you! just kiddin. I am so glad to hear you both are tired too. I have been sooo tired lately. I’ve been falling asleep by 9:30 the past few nights and am still so wiped out. I got up early this am to read the Word, since I fail to make time during the day or night
    🙁 Man, you sure did get some stuff accomplished today girl!! I did 1 load of laundry and didnt fold it til 7hrs later. Landon is looking so sweet…..I think he’d look even cuter with a tiger on his cap….Go MIZZOU!
