Yep, I am still here! Kinda reminds me of that song we sing at church..”God is not dead, No! He is alive…..” Umm, yeah like that only Mrs. C is not dead, NO! She is alive!  Okay sorry for the trailing off …

Anyway, where have I been? Working. working and yet more work! Plus, hubby did get a job in Austin. Yes, that is right you heard me, Austin! Of course some of you already know this since you do see me in r.l. No we are not moving to Austin yet. I don’t even know if we will for sure or when I would know. Hubby’s contract job is for a year so we saw no need in uprooting the family. We have been seeing each other on the weekends. That is all coming to a very short stop. He will be on call for a couple of weekends so we will go as short as 14 days or as long as 21 days of not seeing each other. YIKES!  How are we coping you ask? Pretty good! Much better this weekend then the past few together. I think we may have found our groove. It sometimes takes awhile to get into a “normal” routine. HA HA, what is normal?! I guess you could say I am a single parent Monday-Friday and sometimes longer than that.

So the last time I left off we were on vacation. I am so sorry to drop the ball on that one but I believe you got the drift. Obviously, I am not going to be able to catch you up in one short post so….

I will leave you with this…Lately, I have been thinking long and hard about what is needed in our life. Order. Order and yet more ORDER! It has become vitally important now that our time together is so short but sweet! I have been working on making things run smoother. Heck we could all tighten up our ships a little. I am not necessarily talking about “clean, perfect” houses. I am talking order or as some people call it “organized.”  Where everything has a place! So, I have begun the…dum de dum….Office! EEEEKKK. I said it! the O word that is typically not mentioned in my house. Yes, ladies and maybe gentlemen I have confessed my weakness to you(hangs head low). Okay maybe I have more than one weakness. Anyway, let’s focus on one thing. I(we) need order there! It is where bills are paid, photos are created, blogs are faithful(cough-cough), beautiful books are displayed, and just maybe a cup of coffee is sipped. I would say the Office here at my house is pretty important to keep in some form of order. Maybe you call it something else. The study, the junk room, the place where you use to dream of___, the cave, the napping room, the scrap-booking room, or the whatever room!! You know the room and you know you need to get to it! So do it! I am and let me tell you I have invested in some help so hang with me to see the process.

Oh and one last thing…my little man reading his favorite magazine. Daddy is so proud!

love your unfaithful blogger

So, today after my run at Myer Park I decided we would play at our little neighborhood park. Honestly, we have never use it. I know I am so ashamed because it is a nice one! Anyway, they have several slides, a plastic rock climbing wall, teeter toter, cars, merry go round, a volleyball court and tennis courts. You have to have a key to get into our playground area. Which is fine and makes me feel somewhat safe. However, the tennis courts usually are just open and are never locked. Little man wanted to discover the open space of the tennis courts. I let him and myself into the area to play chase mommie! He loves that game. After about 15 minutes, we needed a potty break or should I say I needed a potty break. I walked over to the gate to open it and discovered very quickly we are locked in. OH NO! “Don’t panic”, I say to myself. I had left our bag with the keys on the bench in the playground area. YIKES! Plus, the gate has only a key entry in and out so you can’t reach around with your hand and turn the lock to open it. I laughed! I began to think okay I am a resourceful woman. There has to be a way. I know! There are 24 hour surrveillance video cameras on so maybe if I wave my hands around like a crazy person they would look and see a toddler and his momma locked in. Right? Quickly, I prayed my 9-1-1 prayer! “I need wisdom now or a police officer would work too Lord!”  I looked at the gate to see that some of the metal had been twisted off to where there was a little opening but not much. I decided to twist off the rest on the sides to create a bigger whole so we both could get out. Sure enough it worked. My little man must have understood because he was right behind me or thought we were going to wrestle since I was so low to the ground. We were free and leaving very quickly since my bladder was in “relieve me” mode.

SO HOW WAS YOUR DAY???? lol

p.s. the above thought process took all of about 90 seconds….=0)

Did I tell you that RED is my favorite color? I have it decorated in almost every room in my house. After, this incident I am rethinking what my favorite color is. Now I have it on the floors in a couple of rooms of the house. My hubby thought it was lipstick at first and was questioning my parenting skills=0). Not really!

The story is that I was making a list for Sam’s. My sweet boy wanted to help. So I found those toddler crayon wobble things for him to use on his on paper. It is suppose to encourage them to color and be “child proof.” I mean in the sense of not taking out the crayon. I am writing my list when I look up in 5 seconds(or so it felt) he had taken the crayon out and used as a decorative devise. Oh what fun!!!!

Here are a couple more pics for your entertainment..
