Good Sunday Mornin' Yall,
Won't you please come in and make yourself at home and have a cup of coffee with me this morning? I don't have anything sweet to eat, but you are more than welcome to have coffee with me. I do hope everyone had a great Saturday and ready to start a new day. It is currently 61 degrees here this morning and on the windy side as well. Did you say 61 degrees? Yes maam, you heard right. LOL. It's suppose to be up near 70 degrees today and tomorrow as well. That's kind of scarry because that's not normal temperatures for Arkansas here in January. They say we may have some storms Monday into Tuesday and possibly severe. I sure hope not. I don't mind the rain and occasional thunder, but I don't like the severe weather at all. Since it's looking like we aren't going to get any Snow this Winter, mabye be can all go out and do a Snow Dance after we have our morning coffee. LOL. Hey, if it works for rain, why not try it for Snow.
Yesterday was a busy day around here. I woke up around 3:45a.m. My alarm was set to go off at 7:00a.m. My DH and our youngest daughter woke up a little after 7:00a.m. on their own. Our oldest daughter got up around 8:00a.m. Me and DH had our morning coffee and we all got ready. We went out to our Gym to watch the Pee-Wee Boys Basketball Games. Our youngest daughter was cheering there. They did good on their Cheers and even did a Court Cheer at one of the half-time games. My DH and our oldest daughter had to leave the Gym around 9:30a.m. to go to Manila, AR for her Basketball Game. While I was here at our Gym, I got to watch 2 of my nephews play their games. My nephew that is in the same grade as our youngest daughter played first and they won their game. The next game was the 5th grade boys and they lost their game. The 3rd game, my nephew that is in the same grade as our oldest daughter is, played, and it was a good game. It was a close game and they even had to go into a 3-minute overtime. My nephew lost their game by 2 points, but they did play a very good game. During one of the half-time games I went outside and called my DH to see how our oldest daughter's game was going. It was half-time at her game and the score was Manila 12 and Rebels 6. I just knew our girls were going to lose their game. After her game was over with, our oldest daughter called me and told me that they ended up winning the game 36 to 22. Woooohoooo, GO REBELS!!!! After half-time, our girls came back and scored 30 points to win the game. My Parents and DH said it was a good game. They have one more game for this coming Saturday and then in a week or so, they have their end of the Season Tournament. It will be at Armorel, AR. The last 2 years, our girls have been undefeated and won both Championship Games. They have lost 2 games this year. I think it was because they were playing 2 new teams that hadn't been in the League before. I do hope they can at least place in the upcoming Tournament. This will be their last year of playing Pee-Wee Basketball together. They will all be moving up to Junior High next School year. This means that some of them won't get to play because since we are consolidated, they will have to have some girls from the other School as well as our School on the team. They will also have try-outs. I'm figuring this is our oldest daughter's last year to play. She is a good ball player, but you know how it is, they will choose the best ones to play on the team. I do hope that she will get to play next year, but if she doesn't, maybe she can find another activity in school to do.
After the Basketball Games and Cheerleading, we had to come to the house and load DH's things in our vehicle to take to put in their truck. We then went and picked his Uncle up that lives here in town as well and took DH and his Uncle to their truck. They left a little after 1:00p.m. heading toward's Canada. After that, me and the girls went to pick my MIL up here in town and went to Jonesboro to the Birthday Party. My nephew had a good turnout. I think there were 17 kids there to Skate. Everyone had a good time. No, I didn't get out there and skate. I didn't want to put anyone to shame out there. ROFLMBO. No, seriously tho, I can't skate all that good at all. I'm even scared to get out there and even try. LOL. I will tell you this tho, I'm thinking of having our oldest daughter's Birthday Party there in April, so, I might, and might being a BIG word, just get out there and skate a bit. Maybe I will have my new Camera by then, and I will get someone to take a picture of me, if I do. While at the Birthday Party yesterday, a couple of the Mother's had dropped their Son's off at the party and theyhad to go do their shopping. When they came back, they had been to Wal-Mart's. They said the place was like a madhouse. They said you couldn't hardly get up and down the aisles. I'm sure glad I didn't have to go to Wal-Mart's. I don't like going there anymore anyway as you may know. They also said that the Gas Pumps at the Wal-Mart Gas Station was packed as well. I did notice as we were going thru one of the town's going to Jonesboro yesterday, that Regular Unleaded Gas was $3.05 a gallon. I think they said it was like $2.93 a gallon at the Wal-Mart Pumps with the Wal-Mart Card you use. It was $2.99 a gallon here in town at our local Gas Station yesterday when we put some Gas in our vehicle. I tell ya, if this gas keeps going up, I may have to try and find me a Covered Wagon like they used back in the good ole days. LOL. Well, I don't know, a bicycle might be better. I sure wish it would go down tho. That's just unreasonable for gas to be that high. Something needs to happen and it needs to happen quickly too. For us poor folks, it is very hard on the pocketbook. Anyway, after the Birthday Party was over with, we came home. It had started misting on us before we got into town. I don't know if it rained anymore last night or not.
Last night for mine and the girl's supper, since I was, as my good friend Diane would say, I is TARD, I put some French Fries and Tacorito's in the oven. It didn't take them long to cook. I like that kind of cooking since I was TARD.
I have no idea what my Sunday Menu plans are today. I have laundry to do and some dishes to wash. We may have some Ramen Noodles or something. I don't usually cook a big meal when it's just me and the girls. I usually wait till DH is home and do that. The girl's usually clean their Bedroom's on Sunday afternoon's. Last Sunday afternoon, they helped clean the whole house. They mopped the Dining Room and the hallway Bathroom. I was so proud of them. They are growing up fast on us. It's time they help me around the house anyway. I told them that when they were small, I used to get down on my hands and knees and clean their Bedroom. I'm too old for that now. LOL. Plus, by them doing some cleaning on their own, shows some responsibility I think.
My DH called me around 4:55a.m. this morning. I was still asleep. He thought I might have already been up having coffee. He was letting me know that he was near Roanoke, VA and he was going to quit driving in a little while and go to bed. He didn't have much sleep yesterday afternoon after they took off. He did get him a little nap he said. He will have to get used to staying awake all night again. I told him I bet he wouldn't have any trouble sleeping today. He said it had been raining on him and was still raining on him. After we talked, I got up and started me some coffee. I'm fixing to have my 3rd cup here in a few mintues. Oh, I will make us another pot. Don't worry, we can have coffee all day long if you want to . LOL.
Well, guess I'm going to go for now. I think I have about posted enough for one day. LOL. Yall have a Blessed Sunday and May God Bless Each and Everyone of You. Take care.
LOVE & HUGS,
