hubby and i had our 10 year anniversary friday. 10 years of bliss! ya right! we have been through hell and back! and close back to hell again. but we are here and happy. we went to a dinner and a movie. ( i so do not recommend "body of lies" to long and drawn out) you know i wouldn't go back to being young again for nothing. through my 34 years i've grown and learned a lot. i've learned things are not important, it is the people that are more important. i don't need to impress anyone. i need to cherish who i have in my life and not dwell on the past and what i don't have. i am so grateful for what i do have! i might not have everything i want but i have everything i need! i might bitch a lot but i have a hubby that loves me and i love him. even know we have our ups and downs, we have each other and three beautiful girls that i don't brag enough about. i tend to focus on negative things when i should be focusing on the good!
so here is to another 10 years babe! maybe 20 or 30 or more! love ya!
here are some pics... first kimber at her soccer game with her neon yellow striped hair to match her neon yellow uniform (which they won 3-2!) and the girls at the pumpkin patch that miranda was not happy about(can you tell by her face?) taking a group pic. i think she is getting to old for that kind of thing. she wanted nothing to with it. and i paid to much money for those dang pumpkins. 32 bucks! at least the money went to the church youth group for a mission trip. i could have saved about 20 bucks if i went to wally world. but i rather give my money to those kids going on a mission trip.
miranda apologized after we took the pic for being a snot about it. which i was thankful he realized the way she was acting. she wanted to take another pic and i told her no. this is how we would remember our trip to the pumpkin patch for 2008! ha! we always buy five pumpkins...a great big one for dad, a medium for me and three smaller sizes for the girls. kind of silly but i like seeing the five of us represented on the porch. it makes me feel good.
and miranda won her volleyball game thursday! wooo hooo! she was so proud!
had teacher conferences today. went much better than last year. no was there to tell me kimber was a "disturbance" or "disruptive" in class. laura gale made the a honor role and kimber is right where she needs to me, minus the wiggling and chit chatting. she doesn't get grades yet. next six weeks she will be given number grades. miranda made the a honor role also. she was stress a bit before report cards came out. but she did just fine. i am very proud of my girls!
anywho, i'm tired! so nite to ya'll!
i'm so jealous of karen! she got to go scrap this weekend with our old scrappy friends here in town. i miss them so! hubby had to go to the deer lease and fill the feeders and do whatever the men do on the lease. so i cleaned the house and did some laundry...fun!!
kimber won her soccer game saturday. 5-1. she did very well. she is learning to be a team player. she did not make any goals but she helped her teammates get the ball where it needed to be to make a goal. she got two patches. her coach gives them these little soccer patches to put on their uniforms. she hands them out for winning, good team work, listening etc...then at our next practice she hands out star patches for the "mvp". it is a great motivator for the girls. this is a pic of kimber (bright neon yellow!) and her friend from school. they played against each other, and it was hard to keep them from chit chatting on the field!
miranda and laura gale didn't win their games. but they are improving so much! miranda is getting just about every serve over and laura gale is getting people out! i can't believe the change in both of them. i haven't taken any pics of lg's games cause they don't have their uniforms yet.
back to running tomorrow with karen. i'm actually starting to like it! i can't believe i'm saying that....weird. anywho she kicks my butt every time. she can go without stopping. i have to stop at least once and do the old lady fast walk to keep up with her. but i'm getting better.
heck if i know!!!!!!
i haven't been able to watch my shows all week cause one of the kids lost the remote. of coarse know one knows who had it last. but all of them swear it wasn't them. thank goodness for tivo or whatever we have...dvr? don't care as long as it is recording. of all weeks...when all the new episodes are on! but really i've been to busy to watch it anyways! so i guess there is nothing to complain about.
karen and i have been running this week. i would have never thought i could run that far. 1.3 miles this morning! karen didn't stop, but i walked for about a minute than tried to catch back up to her. i would never do this on my own, so thanks k! i still can't imagine running 13 miles. i have a lot of work to do before dec.
tonight was another hectic thursday night. i'm really starting to hate thursdays more than mondays! i get so frustrated and flustered trying to get everyone where they need to be on time. lg had a softball game at 5:30. miranda's game started early...5:30 instead of 6 so that through me off a bit. and kimber's soccer practice was at 6:30. since i can't leave kimber alone at practice i only got to see a little bit of both lg's and miranda's game. i am seriously thinking about taking them all out of sports. i know it would be so wrong, but i can't keep this up. miranda's is with her school so it is not a problem with her getting to the games and i have a couple of mom's that bring her home for me. but i want to be there! and i can't take one out(kimber) and not the others. that wouldn't be fair so i guess i have to suck it up. i talked with kimber's coach and some other soccer mom's about leaving her there. but i made them promise to "yell" at her if she is not doing what she is suppose to be doing. so i might try it next tuesday to see how it works out before i try it on a thursday. lately all she wants to do is the splits and cartwheels!
and to top off my day...hubby is going to the deer lease this weekend! so there goes my scrappy weekend :( i really need a break!
after running with k and rushing to the gym for my workout, i barely had enough time to shower and get ready for my jr. high PTA meeting. had to leave that early so i could get kimber to the dentist. now i have to get ready for the elementary PTA meeting tomorrow. so good night! sleep tight!
oh i hear hubby coming home from poker...maybe he won! the deal is if he gets to play every thursday i get the profits! hehe
