HaPpY HaLLoWeEn!!

Hey Sista's.......should I apologize for not blogging? I don't know why I haven't been able to make myself sit down and really pour my heart out? I guess I have so much to say.....but just don't want to ramble about it all since....there is SO MUCH I could say! But let's be real....I can't say everything I want to say because this IS THE WORLD WIDE WEB. I know it's not like I'm running for a politcal office....but I guess there are just some things better left unsaid.

The basement renovation is progressing though. They start the drywall and stone fireplace next I am ready for that! Halloween is this Sunday and Lil Bon will be a Greek Goddess, which was a much better selection than....Lady GaGa or Micheal Jackson....which she previously expressed interest in!

Tomorrow we will be going on a horseback riding trail in the mountains and when we come back down...we'll eat dinner and then do their "Haunted House". This will be the first year that it hasn't snowed on Halloween.....according to the locals. It will only be in the 60's everyone is acting like this is a definite heat wave. It feels absolutely great to us!

Tomorrow is Big Boo's 1st Fall Lacrosse game and then off the ride! Wishing all my Sista's a great weekend and Happy Halloween. It will be my Daddy's Birthday on Sunday......he always told us he "rode in on a broomstick". Love ya Pops!

The Birthday Off Track! I used to celebrate my birthday all week....and clearly I would make this known to my immediate family within  the four walls of my home. However, the soul mate has been out of town for the last two days and let's just say....I am in desperate need of a Girls Night Out. (In A MAJOR WAY!) And I mean I don't need anything materialistic....just an's Mom's Birthday.....let me take the trash out for you....or clean up the table......or Mom...let's just order in tonight? Nope....hasn't happened.

How can one thing that goes wrong just set the tone for the rest of the day? I did wake up and do my Bible Study! Maybe that's it...I usually do it late at night after everyone's in bed and it's actually quiet. I chose not to do that yesterday....uhmmm....Guess I'll need to talk that one over with the man upstairs.

After the one thing that actually threw the wrench in the just got worse. Lil Bon has been out of school for the past three weeks due to her being in what they call...."All year around" school here." Oh...yeah....lots' of benefits....your children are supppose to retain more ...therefore create less work for the teachers...uhmm..Well...let me tell you about the cons.

#1. They want to stay up all night and sleep until 10 and then expect you to either to take them to breakfast and or lunch.

#2. You have to constantly remind them to read the required material that they are to continue while on break, as well as, visit sites that keep their mind sharp for upon return.

#3. They get bored at the drop of a penny. And most of their friends all have plans and are already signed up for things to do during this time. (I will know this for next time!)

#4. What do you do if you work....hire a Nanny? I am not working but I would like to because I am bored beyond belief....what then?

So...I am ready for traditional school....and she is on the track that is closest to the traditional school year calendar. So Lil Bon starts back on Oct 19th and Big Boo starts his fall  break this Friday. Praise God it's only for a week. This three week thing has driven me bonkers. We've shopped....did extra horse lessons....make pottery....went to the libraries....shopped some more....and eaten out almost everyday for lunch. (Hence the weight gain!)

So I will always remember my OFF TRACK Birthday week! Oh...and did I mention I'm homesick....for both cities....for my family in Memphis and my friends and family in prayers are needed....because....I am OFF TRACK!!
