Back to the list!


This past weekend, the boys & I were blessed to mark another item off our bucket list! #25 was to take the boys to Gatlinburg, TN around Christmas time. I wanted them to see the lights & have a good time & they sure did!

The boys experienced many firsts. They rode go carts, played in a huge arcade, walked the streets in Gatlinburg, admired the lights, stayed in a hotel, swam in a pool in the middle of winter, & got in a whirlpool. Cole gassed us after eating BBQ(shew!) and Nicky bought at least 10 new tiny bouncey balls (we won’t go there).  We met celebrities (cardboard), acted out scenes with Droids, posed in silly hats, & discovered Santa carries a double barrell sawed off shotgun! Cole & I got henna tattoos. The boys spent $5 to get me a toy outta various claw machines.

What a great adventure 🙂 I’m so glad we got back to the list! And I am thankful that God has blessed our lil family again 🙂

Waking up can leave an Impression on your day


It’s not easy to start the day now, especially when Waking up can leave an Impression on your day. After the craziness of knocking myself in the head, I’ve had days that I wake up & don’t know where I am, who I am, or what day it is. Luckily, most days lately haven’t been this way though. Everyday that passes I seem to remember more & more.

I must have been pretty bad in the beginning though because I made myself notes of new things I would learn about life:  my kids names, color of my car, my name, why I couldn’t remember & a recount of how I whacked my head, etc. It’s all written down & near the bed so I can refresh my memory each morning if I needed to. Talk about Waking up leaving an Impression on your day! Geez

This morning everything was fine & dandy with my memory, but my ears were ringing. I had fallen asleep last night with the alarm laying on the bed next to me. Somehow, in the middle of the night, I rolled over on it. At 5:47 AM, I woke up hearing a loud beeping in my ears. My face was on the alarm clock and the weight of my head was enough to make a clock impression on the left side of my face!!

Once I realized it was stuck to me, I started laughing pretty hard. I realized I couldn’t leave it that way, so I started to peel the clock off. This was much easier said than done. I fumbled with it to make that hiddious noise turn off.  My ears were ringing and my head was pounding. Ow! Waking up CAN leave an Impression on your day!
Shortly after refreshing my memory (new daily chore), I put my feet on the floor & got moving. 

So, that my friends, is how you wake up and make an unmistakable impression on the day (or on your face)!
