I know it is scary…but there is a silver lining! You only have today, tomorrow and Friday! Not to mention something to divert you tickle bone for a few minutes…”Come on…It’s Facebook Funnies Time!”

(Quietly slipping my hand back down!)

The “Giggle Break” is over and time for me to attempt to stir the slumbering troops from their cozy coverlets. My hubby’s day off is quickly marching along while he sleeps so if I want any time shopping with him today I had better wake him up!

I hope your tickle bone was entertained today…share a smile and…

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

Peach State says: On To The Next Hurdle!

20130513-091959.jpg

My kitchen table was decorated with flowers and cards yesterday…What a pleasant surprise when I got home from church. “In truth…I was not expecting to much this year after finding out about the upcoming trip.” The humor filled cards placed a smile on my face similar to the one I put on “our mutual cat loving friend’s face as I pulled out a tangerine before Sunday School. (Between you, me and the front porch…my growling stomach has gotten a bit out of control recently! ) All in all it was a very nice Mother’s Day! So what now?

“On To The Next Hurdle”…

These hurdles are not difficult-life-changing-decision-filled-agonizing-obstacles but merely slightly-inconvenient-time-consuming-errands. I am relieved to report that the level of difficulty is also minimized due to fact they are shopping related hurdles and nothing boring like getting an oil change or tire rotation. Shopping…one of my strong suits! Today I will possibly return my hubby’s four shirts for a smaller size and then off in search of that elusive perfect pair of shoes for me. (HeHe…Guess what I did earlier this morning!…Printed off coupons!)
I am ready for what ever comes my way…including any of those sneaky hurdles.

I also found myself beginning to gather needed items for the upcoming trips. Ziploc bags and the last of the travel paper coffee cups were placed with other supplies neatly on the counter. A new spray-can of sunscreen and a new bar of soap were placed close by for my youngest trip to camp.
Appointments have been made for last minute haircuts and pedicures. “Sounds like I will have a mini-spa day prior to my leaving with hubby!”

My youngest found himself starring at the calendar…
“Are you sure that is the last day of school? Why are there so many things on the calendar?” Using my reassuring tone I let him know that sometimes I still use pen and paper. “Imagine that!” Plus…most of the items put on the calendar were related to his schedule. Organization…another one of my strong suits/pet peeves! This was to help him as well as other members of the house who do not have access to my personal devices. Several dates were marked for medicine refills and TKD. I had even marked Mother’s Day and his daddy’s birthday which, for some unknown reason, seemed to slip his mind. The information meetings next Sunday for VBS and Youth Camp as well as the dates of his Youth Camp departure and return fill the remaining days of the calendar.

Minor Hurdle…I need more coffee! BRB!

Well…another member of the family is heading out for work leaving me free to go about my hurdle-jumping-errands. “I guess I should start getting ready myself.”

Wishing you strength and endurance with your own hurdles today!
Have a great day!

Peach State says: Coaching the Game of Life

20130314-084835.jpg
Whistle around my neck…Extra coffee ready…Players all ready for the game…
“What play will I call first?”

Today is one of those days that life throws in just to keep you guessing. No use planning your schedule because it could change at the drop of the hat. Seriously!
Okay so my mind is moving way to fast for me today…Coffee Break!…I sat down to relax after my hubby and youngest left this morning and could only run scenarios ,of my day, in my mind. I felt like I was Coaching the Game of Life!

20130314-085914.jpg

You go to work…run the ball
You go to school…flank right
Okay, your working too…flank left
That one is gone till sometime in the fourth quarter…in the locker room
Oldest son…defend that ball

I watch the play unfold and the quarterback runs the ball…
As long as we don’t fumble we will be fine. I have two cakes to bake…a three-layer and a two-layer
and realized this morning I am 2 eggs short. A store run is added to the day’s errands thanks to the magic of dry erase markers and dry erase board. “Tragedy averted!”
I am drawing from my previous experiences to plan my day. I may have to skip taking my youngest to TKD in order to pick up my 19 year old in the fourth quarter. He is across the state in the final stages of recruitment. Last time he was there for a test he arrived back about 5:45-6:15….that will not do tonight.

Mom has to be at a quartet practice about 6 pm with an extra Easter Practice at 6:30!

Come on guys…don’t fumble! We need to move the ball…we are almost there! I sure hope I don’t go down in history as the worst coach to ever play the game.

Flag on the play! PERSONAL FOUL!
“Mom…there are three packages upstairs that need to be sealed up and then taken to UPS!”

“Time out!” Back to the dry erase board….leave earlier and combine the UPS store and grocery store together before heading to the doctor’s office. Wiping the sweat from my brow I remind myself to smile…oh and breathe! No time to give up now guys…push through everything thrown at us.

My head is swimming and I need to focus. Next on the list is getting ready to leave. Timing is crucial so I can get back and bake the cakes and still have time for the to cool and decorate before fixing dinner. Oh crud!. Dinner! Sorry to cut this short…I am headed back to the dry erase board. Wish me luck!…I know I am strongest on days like this… Say it with me! I can do this!

Have a great day!

Peach State says: Mother’s Vicious Circle

20130128-123427.jpg

A dear friend shared this with me…it describes her to a tee! The funny thing is that most of us bounce around our day in flip-flop-pinball fashion. Being reminded of the things we need to accomplish by accidental occurrences. “Mother’s Vicious Circle”. Please read the following to understand what I am talking about…then Like if you have ever had a day like this…or if you survive daily in this same manner.

If You Give A Mom A Muffin
by Beth Brubaker
If you give a mom a muffin,
she’ll want a cup of coffee to go with it.
She’ll pour herself some.
Her three year-old will come and spill the coffee.
Mom will wipe it up.
Wiping the floor, she will find dirty socks.
She’ll remember she has to do laundry.
When she puts the laundry into the washer,
she’ll trip over shoes and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her she has to plan supper.
She will get out a pound of hamburger.
She’ll look for her cookbook
(How to Make 101 Things With a Pound of Hamburger.)
The cookbook is sitting under a pile of mail.
She will see the phone bill, which is due tomorrow.
She will look for her checkbook.
The checkbook is in her purse,
which is being dumped out by her two year-old.
Then she’ll smell something funny.
She’ll change the two year-old.
While she is changing the two year-old, the phone will ring.
Her five year-old will answer and hang up.
She’ll remember she was supposed to phone a friend
to come over for coffee.
Thinking of coffee will remind her that she was going to have a cup.
She will pour herself some more.
And chances are,
if she has a cup a coffee,
her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.

So did you see yourself in this passage? Do you know what it is like to go through your day this crazy-non-stop-way? I sure do!

Have a great day!

Peach State says: Paper Work and Barking Dogs Do Not Mix!

What a Glorious Day!

What a glorious day! The sky is a true blue and there is not one cloud in the sky…at least from my office window. I am sitting at my desk completing the daunting task of making a doctor’s appointment to get the (proverbial) ball rolling on my pain treatments. I have my trusty cup of coffee with me and will need to fill it up soon. It has taken longer to do the locating and printing of a few oh-so-wonderful-time-consuming-waiting-on-hold-listening-to-elevator-music-no-one-has-heard-before-new-patient-forms-and-paper-work due to my Precious Princess barking at every Tom, Dick and Hairy creature out the front windows.

Paper Work and Barking Dogs Do Not Mix!

Yelling at her and closing the blinds did not do the trick. I gave up and let her go out into the backyard. Things were beginning to click right along when a distant and oh so familiar sound reached my ears. This time it was the neighbors dog barking at my Precious Princess. It seems my Precious Princess was flirting with the big dog next door by running up and down along the fence. It is a good thing I was no longer on the phone. HEHE! It takes forever to get her back on the deck and in the house.

I am glad to report I only have one more piece of Paper Work left to complete the old fashioned way…with black or blue ink. It is a whopping-want-to-know-everything-about-your-third-cousin’s-next-door-neighbor’s-car-salesman 10 page form. I think I had better stop procrastinating and just do it…It has to be completed by Monday! HEHE!

I shall refill my Coffee and head to the kitchen table. I will need the extra space for the dictionaries and address books, colored pencils to shade in the diagrams, and a needle to prick my finger when signing the forms…”Well maybe I can get away without signing in blood!” But I better hurry while my Precious Princess is quiet…No Barking Dogs = Paper Work completed in a timely manner. Wow, it is nice and quiet without the constant Woof-Woof Woof-Woof.

Paper Work and Barking Dogs Do Not Mix!

Have a great day!

My Precious Princess
