This morning was lots better than yesterday ... we made it to the right school and I got to work right on time. :) Now getting up this morning was even harder I just wanted another 30 minutes to an hour but I bet if I had of gotten that then I would have wanted more. LOL My son wasn't too happy with me last night when I got to asking him about his dad I busted out laughing about our morning. Well needless to say he didn't find any humor in it at all like I did. :)
Well I've got to get busy now. =)

First off want to say that I really enjoyed going to church yesterday at NewSpring :) It was so awesome and over 100 people were saved in the service I was at. Oh and a bonus the Clemson Football team just happened to be there for the service. :) Guess if I was a Clemson fan I would have known who all those guys were walking past me LOL
Now the sad part of my blog today which I go ahead and give you permission to laugh at when you read. :) Now today was the first day back to school and since I moved the end of last year I moved my son over to Northside this year. We went on Thursday and got his schedule and met his teachers and all that good stuff. Now the funny part which when it was happening I didn't think was too funny I was so upset. :( I ended up taking my son to Merrywood this morning and dropping him off instead of at Northside. Not sure how we did this and yes I said we because Matthew was a part of the drive this morning too because where I wanted to turn he was like no that's not right. Well I dropped him off got all the way back out to the road when he was calling me saying mama you dropped me off at the wrong school. So I had to turn around go back to get in the very long line which was 30 minutes of a wait :( all of which I was crying because how could a mama drop her child off at the wrong school. Parents and the kids were staring at me because I was crying but I'm guessing they figured I had a child just starting school since I was at the elementary school, but if they'd looked closely they would have seen I didn't have child in my car at all. Once I reached the man once again asking if I was going in w/my child or dropping off when he noticed I didn't have a child and I was like no I'm picking him back up and he thought my son had gotten sick already LOL and I was like no but don't ask. Now by the time I reached my son and saw him waiting on me I just busted out laughing so hard and once he got in the car I was like it's all your fault cause you told me I need to go down to the next turn in. He was like I walked in and those kids came up to my knees and I was thinking man we must be having show and tell the first day. LOL Yeah yeah I know I shouldn't have listened to him to start with but it made sense because no one was turning in where I was wanting to turn in. Well I finally got him to the correct school and made it to work at 8:20, and thank goodness I have a great boss because when I called him to tell him I was going to be late I was just a crying and he was so sweet. :) He was like it's going to be alright. My mama was another funny one she laughed and laughed and laughed when I called to tell her what had happened. I am still smiling about it and it's 3:20 now which is what time he's getting out of school. :) I don't think I'll be able to top this one off from being the funniest or craziest thing I've ever done. I can't even blame this on having a Blondie moment.
Well I think wires got crossed this weekend ... my sister had emailed me on Friday to see if I could watch the girls over the weekend for her while she worked and I had emailed her back saying what I could do which wasn't much because I had already had things planned. So she emailed back asking if I could watch them Saturday all day and I had already told her in an email that I'd only be able to watch them Saturday evening. Well I never heard back from her on Friday so I figured she'd found someone to watch them all weekend .... WRONG but she was able to get things worked out so that she could work. :) I ended up going home from work Friday morning an hour and a half after I got to work and I went straight to bed and thank goodness I felt lots better when I got up. I was able to go and meet HOG at a back to school bash. :) That was pretty fun then I went home and read til I had to go to bed. Got up Saturday morning and cleaned on the house then got ready and headed to town. I actually thought I was riding to Greenville but didn't make that trip. :( Then I went and hung out w/a friend and ended up staying there late because of the storm. Got back home around midnight and my power had been out so I was glad I didn't try to drive in the storm. Got to bed and up early so I could get ready to go to Anderson. I really enjoyed spending time w/my friends on Sunday and going to church in Anderson. I can't wait to go back ... I could of listened to the band play a little bit longer but that's okay the final count for people saved at NewSpring Sunday was over 200 according to the pastors blog. :) Pastor Clayton King spoke Sunday at NewSpring and he was great!!!

I discovered yesterday that I wished now I had of had my surgery, but I still feel like I made the right decision. I'm feeling much better today :) but I haven't been up very long yet. I don't guess a whole lot has gone on but it was a very fast week to me. I took my son to pick up his schedule and meet his teachers on Thursday from 10:30 to 12 ... I really hope that he's going to do well this year. I'm not familiar with the school at all but I haven't heard anything bad at all. :) I've talked with parents, teachers, and even past and present students and I was surprised to hear that even the kids thought the school was great. :)
It's Sunday now LOL I really got side tracked blogging yesterday. Not sure if I'll be able to blog today or not I'm heading to Anderson this morning and won't be back until sometime this afternoon. :)

Got to start blogging more

Man I've got to start blogging more frequent LOL I'm forgetting things before I have a chance to write about them. This maybe a blog that will make some reading mad, but I've come to realize that my feelings are my feelings and I can't help the way I feel sometimes. I've been very busy at work then when I get home in the evenings I just drop on the couch and pick up a book and start reading until I can't hold my eyes open. :) I'm actually reading 3 books at one time now actually have 4 that I'm reading but I put one on the back burner. LOL Once I finish these books I'm going to stick to reading just one book at a time. Ha-Ha
My daughter found out that she is due March 13th :) that is just guess she wasn't sure of exact dates so she guessed a time period. LOL Guess we will find out the due date when she has her ultra sound done. So I'll update the due date once I know for sure when it is but for now assume March 13th. Wish I could share some of the text she has sent me lately LOL she would die if I blogged them, but I sure have gotten a snicker out of some of them. :)
This past week was one that really stressed me out and I haven't been that stressed in a while. We will begin at 12 am Sunday August 3rd that's when my phone rang and woke me it was my sister asking me if Travis could bring the girls he needed to go to the hospital. I think he got here around 1 am with the girls and I got them laid down and to sleep and I set my alarm clock for 7 am cause Travis said Erin would be coming right after work to get the girls. Then she wanted me to watch them Sunday night so I did. Well the baby cried and/or screamed from 7:30pm to 10:30pm and the other 2 actually laid down really good for me I thought they would go to sleep in no time. WRONG I was still up at 4 am with the older 2 girls and I have to get up at 6 am to get ready for work. So when my sister got here I told her I couldn't keep the girls on my work nights anymore but I could help out on the weekends. I talked to her a few times that week either by phone or computer. Well Thursday morning I got a phone call from one of her friends all upset because she hadn't been able to get in touch w/Erin. So I called the house no answer, called the hospital talked to a nurse there and told her I was worried about Travis' wife my sister and said could you please have Travis call me before 12 as I was leaving work early. When he hadn't called by 11:50 am I called Sandi because who else would my sister call but Sandi? So Sandi filled me in about DSS going to Erin's house and that Erin and the girls are staying w/them now. I called Erin's friend back and told her what I had found out and guess what she already knew what I had just found out she knew when it happened. Well I had asked Sandi to get Erin to call me when she got back and at 4:30 my sister still hadn't called me to let me know anything so I called back to Sandi's and did get to talk to her. I asked her if she would call and keep me informed as to what is going on w/the girls. She sent me a message that night and I'm assuming from what she said that since she is a house guest they will not let her use their phone to call her family. Well Friday went by no call then Saturday she calls saying Sandi wants to know if you can watch the girls this afternoon. I said sure but later Erin called saying that they found someone w/out bedtimes to keep the girls that way they could clean up longer. Maybe it's just me but do people not have set times (schedules) for their lives anymore? Do you not put your children on a schedule? Do you let your children do as they please? I know I'm easier on my son during the summer but it's the end of summer break now and he'll go back on a tight schedule. That should be very fun ha-ha.
Let me tell you he was so worn out when he got home Friday evening. :) He was at a missions trip Monday - Friday in KY ... they left out after church on Sunday and then drove back on Friday. He said they had them up at 7 am and they didn't get to bed until 12 am or after the whole week. We both slept in Saturday :) sort of. I had stayed up until 11:30 Friday night watching the Olympics ... now you would have thought I could have made it 30 more minutes to catch the end but thank goodness for DVR but I still have had time to go back to watch it yet. :( I've been watching the games :)
