Lazy Day

 This morning when I woke up, I had two extra legs on my body and an extra head on my pillow. Sometime during the night, Skywalker, our son, decided he wanted to be close to his mom. I am not complaining at all. I have to say, there is NO sweeter way to wake up. After all of my morning kisses, G.I. Joe made bacon, egg, and cheese omelets. He has always been the master of the grill, but now he is trying to overtake my kitchen.

I have told myself a million times....Do your breathing treatments and then eat!! My morning treatments seem to be the hardest. I have just recently increased my vest to 30 minutes T.I.D. Oh..What was I thinking??? I guess I had half of my breakfast left...UG!!! How gross is that? I know there are lots of CFers reading this thinking...{ too..!!}

This morning in Sunday school, the teacher wanted to a child what did we want to be when we grew up?? My husband of course hit the nail on the head..."A Solider". I just sat back and thought...I just always wanted to healthy!

We spent our afternoon being lazy. G.I. Joe and Yoda (our 5 month old beagle) took their long nap in the chair laid all the way back. Skywalker hit the door running as soon as we got home. He plays with the Bunker kids every waking minute. Today, they played kickball which evolved into WAR BALL!! As for myself, I have started cleaning out my clothes and getting ready for spring/summer. My day ended with a great supper from the grill. After bath time, I got beat playing UFC with Skywalker!

Motivation is needed!!! I have got to hold myself to an exercise routine.
My Plans: Treadmill 30 mins at least 5 times a week.

It's MY Birthday!!

I just spent 2 weeks in the hospital and I got home just in time to celebrate my 35th birthday!  Instead of celebrating for the day, we have decided just to celebrate it through the weekend.  I totally agree with that!! Friday night, we grilled out with our neighboors (The Bunkers).  I must change names to protect the inoccent and the guilty. I have to say, we love them.  Our children are just like brothers and sisters.  Mrs. Bunker made me strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese icing.(!!).   Billy (family buddy w/ 3 kids) came over to suprise me with a gift and a birthday cake!  After supper, my husband brings in a big white box! Guess what ?? another CAKE!!  Do I have to tell you how happy the kids were?  We all stayed up late and ate cake.  It is so hard to do breathing treatments and the vest when your stomach is so full.

This morning, I got a call from across the street (The Wilsons) wanting me to come over and look at a new piece of furniture.  I walked through the door only to be suprised by a number of my friends yelling "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"!!!  We sat down and had CAKE...(#4) and lots of other goodies with punch. After celebrating again, I left to go watch my son play Upward basketball at the church.  **Shout out to my son*** MAN YOU PLAYED A GREAT GAME.. I'm a very proud mom!

So how do you end two great days of celebrating a birthday?  {CRAWFISH}  My sweet husband is outside getting ready to throw them in the pot!  So this will be another night with the Bunkers, Billy, and no telling who else will end sucking the heads!

Why do I blog?

I have finally decided after a few months of being coerced by a great CF friend to start a blog.  I finally made the choice to write this because of my son.  I am writing in hopes that one day he can go back and remember all the fun times that otherwise he might have forgotten.  I also want my husband to read about what joy he brings to my life.  I'm just blogging so that one day when my Heavenly Father calls me home, they will be able to read and know what an impact they have made in my life.
