Good Tuesday Mornin' Yall,
I do hope this finds that everyone had a wonderful Monday. It is another new day today. This is the day, this is the day, this is the day that the Lord hath made!!!! It is a chilly morning here. It is 37 degrees with a windchill of 33. It is suppose to warm up about 10 degrees more than what it was here yesterday, so that will be good. I was watching our local weather man give his Monday night forecast last night a little after 10:00p.m. last night and they are calling for rain again this coming weekend. He also mentioned the "I" word. Yeap, you guessed it. "ICE". He did say it was still a few days out and that they would be keeping an eye on it. Lord, I pray for no ice. You can send snow, but please no ice. AMEN. I would love to see some snow, but ice is just too dangerous. I am sitting here waiting on my pot of coffee to get done. I sure wish it would hurry up. All this talking about ice is making me cold here. LOL
We went to Gosnell, AR last night to the basketball game. My dear Mother-In-Law went with me so it wouldn't just be me and the girls. "THANK GOD" the rain had stop and the fog was gone. It was a good game. It was another tense game. The first half of the game we would be ahead by 2 or 3 points. It was just too close for compfort. Then at half-time it was tied up. Wouldn't you know it, during the third quarter it was still close, us still leading by 2 or 3 points. Finally, the 4th quarter comes around and walla. We started scoring more points. We ended up winning the game 26 to 16. GO REBELS!!!! My daughter got to play quite a bit last night and she even scored 2 points again. She made an excellent play during the 4th quarter where she got the ball and dribbled it down the court and gave it to a team mate to score 2 points. You just had to be there to see it. Seems there were more team playing during the 4th quarter. One of the main players didn't get to play because she had left school yesterday morning sick. She was at the game because her parents are the coaches. She was dressed out but she just sat on the bench the whole game. We have another game tonight at Luxora, AR. I went outside at half-time last night, and there was a lady outside also and we were talking about games and such. She did say that Luxora beat them (Gosnell) 32 to 8. She said there was some big players on that team as well. And they like to play rough and hit and that good stuff. I am now dreading that game. Yall may remember me posting a while back about one of my daughter's game where 2 girls got kicked out of the game due to kicking and hitting. Yall, there is just no sense in this kind of stuff. I mean this ain't professional basketball. It's not even high school basketball yet. It all should be just for fun. The lady also told me about another team that we still have yet to play doing the same thing. I may have to get me a "POLICE" escort to these games. LOL. I'm still not sure about the Wednesday night game yet, but I'm sure the coach will let us know tonight. I don't sound like a proud mother do I? LOL. I AM VERY PROUD OF MY DAUGHTER. SHE DOES GOOD!!!! Okay, I'll move on now.
How is everyone's Christmas decorating coming? I still have to put my village up. I'm hoping to get it up later on in the week. I am seriously thinking of doing the "Christmas Home of Tours" this year. I wasn't out here in blogland last year, so I am really excited about doing it. BooMama is hosting it this year I've been told. I will probably know for sure by the weekend if I'm doing it or not. That's why I'm not going to post any more pictures because if I decide to do it, it will be a surprise. The picture yesterday was just a little teaser. LOL. Are any of you doing the "Christmas Home of Tours" this year? If you did last year, feel free to tell me more about it. I know we have to post pictures on our blogs and all. Is there anything else to it besides that? I dunno, I'm just asking.
I want to "THANK" you all for lifting Barb and Mandy up yesterday. After I had read her blog yesterday afternoon, I just felt the need to post about it and ask for prayers. "THANK GOD" she wasn't hurt nor was the young boy. I do imagine she will be a bit sore this morning tho. Yesterday morning on Interstate 40 here in Arkansas, there had been a bad wreck the night before and it had the East bound lane closed up until late yesterday morning. A Charter Bus coming from Chicago going to Dallas crossed the median and hit a truck and then a semi hit the bus also. I still haven't heard as to why the Charter Bus crossed the median. Last account I heard, there were 3 casualties and 20 or more injured. We need to lift these families up as well. Even tho we may not know them, we should still pray for them. The pictures I seen on the news yesterday morning, the Charter Bus was torn up pretty good. From the looks of it, I don't see how anyone came out alive. But, PRAISE GOD they did.
I called hubby yesterday morning at 8:00a.m. to wake him up. He was already up and getting unloaded. It had to be there at 11:00p.m. Sunday night and he was there by 9:45p.m. After he got unloaded he called to let me know he had to go over into Illinois and pick up another load and take it to Shreveport, Louisiana. He had me to map it out for him to see which way it would have him running. Wouldn't you know it, it had him running down Interstate 40. But Thankfully, he would be on the Westbound lane going. I told him about the wreck and to be careful. He called me last night about 9:30p.m. to let me know he was shutting down. He was down in Prescott, AR. I have to call him at 7:00a.m. to wake him up so he can get the load on down to Shreveport. I don't know where he will be going from there. He will have to wait until he is unloaded and then call the brokerage company. I do know he will be home Thursday night. Hubby and me has some business to attend to in Jonesboro Friday morning. He told his boss yesterday he had to be home Thursday evening as well as the brokerage company. He has told me many times he just hates to leave in that truck every week. It doesn't bother him too bad when he is hauling locally, but when he has to be gone all week, he doesn't like that part of it. He tells me he wished he had a job that pays $1,000 a week just to sit at home. LOL. I know what you are probably thinking, but you have to know my dear hubby. He is very comical. He is always making me laugh. I tell him when he finds that kind of job to be sure to let me know and I would apply for it also. LOL.
I am letting the girls sleep a little later than usual this morning. Instead of me getting them up earlier and fixing them breakfast, they are going to eat breakfast in the school lunchroom. It was late when they got in bed last night, so they do need their rest.
Well, guess I'll go for now. I think I may go see who's up and if your not up, I will wake you up. LOL. Just kidding. Yall have a great Tuesday and may God Bless Each and Everyone of You. Take care my friends.
LOVE & HUGS,
