Peach State says: Facebook Funnies Friday!

20131108-081115.jpg
The truth is that this freakish-red-nosed-clown was holding me captive yesterday and I could not write my post. “Okay…That is not true and it’s highly unlikely!” I think I will still blame “IT”! So let’s see what we can find for “Facebook Funnies Friday!”

Now that Halloween is over we must move in an orderly fashion to the next holiday…What to do?

If we are speaking truthfully…they do look like the turkey my hubby shot and had stuffed that sits in the dining room!

This one definitely deserves the Straight-Jacket Award:

Okay…time for a break from the Holidays:

Always try to limit the use of “commas” when writing!

I am sorry but this deserves an award…How about the Been There…Done That Award?

Another Whovian counting down to the “Day of the Doctor” on Facebook. ( 2 weeks from tomorrow…but who’s counting?)

This is a new and improved way to utilize the time change!

I chose to use that extra hour to enjoy a little extra one on one time with my “Caffeinated Companion”! Didn’t you?

Uh…well if you don’t have a bat available try the following:

Sorry I was giggling…( I know someone who does Interpretive Dance…without being asked a question!)

Well my oversized cup has been refilled with it’s second filled-to-the-brim-6-shots-of-espresso. I am so cold! Just as I thought…the thermostat says it is 65 in the house…so I have just now flipped the control to heat. “JUST FOR A LITTLE WHILE!”

Peach State says: That’s All I Have To Say About That!

As Forest Gump always said…“That’s All I Have To Say About That!”

The normal routine was dashed against the side of the cliff this morning! At least my Starbucks was at my side!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Limitation’s Painful Reminders!

20131105-072755.jpg

I have to admit I don’t kiss my oh-so-highly-independent-easily-embarrassed-by-parental-PDA’s 20 year old in public and have not since 4th or 5th grade. But I do enjoy the occasional poke or pat in front of his friends! It is highly recommended as a competitive sport among parents.

With this in mind…Last night was the Upwards Basketball Awards Night and both of my youngest were involved. My 20 year old was a coach/referee and the 13 year old a player. Here are just a few examples of…

Limitation’s Painful Reminders!

[20 year old]
The shaking head,
The rolling eyes,
The “I can’t believe you just did that” look,
“Please stop!”
“And my not-so-favorite…” The imitation of an older person using a walker!

[13 year old]
Blank stare,
Cold stare,
Unexplained deafness… Well, pretty much the way he usually acts in public!

Sadly the Painful Reminders from my 20 year old came before the program even started. Let me paint a picture for you.

We were one of the first to arrive, as usual, and entered the building as loud-arena-motivating-sporting-event music filled our ears. My dear friend was up in the sound booth testing out different songs for the evenings proceedings. Unfortunately, according to my 20 year old, I can not “Move It, Move it” anymore due to my age and lack of coolness! “Do you see what is happening?” So being the mom that I am…I simply removed myself to a location filled with those who are in my age group and who enjoy “Moving It, Moving It!” (Insert parental chuckle!) Close your eyes for a moment and think about the “Tacky Parent Dance!” Are you laughing yet? “We were!” Once I was with this exclusive group my inner “Dancing Queen” emerged. Well not really but I do love a good beat you can move to! Who doesn’t? My 20 year old just walked out the main doors shaking his head as his gave me that look…”Please Stop! I can’t believe you just did that!”

The next set of events prompted the rolling of eyes and shaking of head….My two dear friends, in the sound booth, have two small girls and….Yep! I picked them up and carried them around and played with them a little too much! Not only did the “old-timer using a walker” routine surface during this time but when I got home and realized the beginning pain associated with lifting and bending with the 2 very young-diaper-wearing-potty-training-sticky-Dorito-coated-fingered girls. “I understand that due to certain physical issues I have I am limited and often am faced with the oh so Painful Reminders!

All in all a good time was had. Games and highlights…drawing if tickets for prizes…and recognition! I don’t want to leave out my youngest and his smirks…I let him roam with the guys and hang. Several times our eyes connected and what a frown I got. “What?…I didn’t do anything!” I guess I was in his business! I am such an awful mom to be interested in what my youngest child is doing when he is not in close proximity in a crowd. If he was a girl I probably would have gotten the “Talk to the hand” attitude. I just had to chuckle inside at my totally-irritating-always-thinking-he’s-right-irresponsible 13 year old! “Has he got a few lessons to learn!”

So this morning, as I type away in my short window of time, I feel a stiffness in my shoulders and neck area not to mention the darn left hip. I carried “Precious Princess” down the stairs before the butt-crack-of-dawn this morning due to her waiting for me at the bedroom door as my alarm sounded this morning. I am in dire need of a lovely Calgon-take-me-away pill but alas, I have places to go and people to see. “Maybe later….hehe!” It is time to wrestle the herd from their beds…our first appointment is at 10 and breakfast is served.

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Sharing “The Grump”…Good or Bad?

20131104-144746.jpg

So this was posted on my Facebook today and I had a thought!

“Sharing “The Grump”…Good or Bad?”

“Well…is that coffee big enough to share? And if you share grumpy does that make you less grumpy?”

Let me consider the concept while I finish my coffee!

Peach State says: Goodbye to Another Season

Bring on the festivities and hang the decorations!

Goodbye to Another Season!

Wait! Why are we rushed to decorate for Christmas ( I will not say the holiday…it’s too soon!) before Thanksgiving? I want to enjoy my rustic-colored-leaves and ribbons with my non-jack-o-lantern-faced pumpkins scattered around. Mr. & Mrs. Scarecrow stand guard next to a harvested bushel of wheat and pumpkins…on my accent table. ( they are so cute and small!). The Harvest table runner, draped over the chair, is ready to occupy the dinning room table. The only red and green showing are in the apples on the counter and the green and red tones already placed on the walls.

Can’t we enjoy this time of year before jumping to the next one!

There is a lot of preparation that still needs to be completed. After all…the Holiday Season is not complete much less in full swing until you have baked more pies, than a family could possibly eat, and have the scent-of-Turkey wafting throughout the house. “Can I get an AMEN?”

Okay…I am stepping off my soapbox! There is just an order that must be followed and the fact that decorations are already… “Oops! My bad!”

Last night we saw another type of season end…It was the last basketball game for my youngest. It was a tight game and at the buzzer the score was 49-50! There were some great shots and not so great shots…but that is what the game is all about! My 20 year old, once again, was the referee for the youngest team last night. There was one little player who began to get upset when he missed every shot. As the game was ending the young boy was suddenly swept up and held over the goal. SWOOSH! “I dunked it!” He said, with the biggest grin spread over his face. He turned around and saw my 20 year old had picked him up to score! Oh the rules that get broken when you’re little! Those kids love my 20 year old and he enjoys that age group…
Monday night we will head back to the gym/church for Awards Night!

So here I go…on to the next task at hand…getting my house ready for THANKSGIVING! Planning the meal and baking the pies…I guess I better make a list! This will be a unique Holiday Season for our little family with the absence of family members but, I will stop there before I can no longer see the keyboard to type. I will close with one more thought as I sip the last of my “morning brew”
