Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad, Please!!

Today a few of us moms decided to venture to Mc seems we are there EVERYWEEK. The kids love it though and we like to take them there for lunch and let them play. It wears them out and then Macy is ready for a good long nap! Macy had kids meal 4 piece w/Sprite, Reid had the # 11 Chicken w/a med. DP, guess it....I had the dreaded Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad w/diet DP..... thats our norm!!! And, although it's good....I'm a little burnt out! You can only eat so many salads before you dread going to Mickey D's!! It sounds funny but today as I was eating my salad and sneaking a few fries from Macy's plate, I thought of Heaven! How wonderful it will be to have a NEW body. I picture heaven many ways but today I was thinking of all the things I could eat in eternity without gaining weight!! Won't that be awesome!! ha ha... I can't wait!! ummmmmm....Lord, could you please pass the turtle cheesecake!

I don't know why this is so hard for me but for some reason everytime I try to sit down and write, I have a major brain fart. What's wrong with me?? Everyone else has posts that can change ones life and mine....well..... :) Can you tell I'm feeling sorry for myself...ha ha

I am so glad that today is Friday!! Who isn't, right?? I am hoping the kids will sleep in a little tomorrow! Today was good.....guess what I found out I could do?? I can drive AND dress a barbie at the same time.....pretty talented, huh?? hee hee!! I always said I would never give in when the kids were screaming in the car. I said that they would just have to deal with it on their own, but today....I gave in!! Macy was crying in the back saying that her barbie was naked and she was could you ignore that?? I used to love barbies, too and you don't want them to be cold, right??? I realized after being a mom that all those things you said that you would never do with your own children come back and bite you in the butt! :)

Reid is so glad that it is the weekend. He has this little girl in his class that likes him and he is not impressed!! He has been crying at night saying he doesn't want to go to school. Finally he told me that a little girl liked him and he didn't like her and he didn't want to tell her that!! :) It's already starting and he's only 8!! He is my little worry wart.....he worries about what might happen next week!! It's so sweet though because he has been wanting me to pray for him everynight before he goes to bed. That is a first for him...and a great bonding experience for us!! I have always prayed with him at night but I have always done the praying. Now he will pray with me. It so sweet and brings me to tears some nights!! He has always been so shy that he won't even pray at the dinner table. He would die if he knew I was writing this so.....shhhhhh!! Just please pray for his tender heart and pray for us that we, as parent, will know what to say to make is worries a little better!

I am so proud of both my kids and I worry about not being a good mommy...look, there I go worring! He's a chip off the ole block!

Troy is off this weekend and I am so glad. It gets so hard sometimes being a stay at home mom. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE IT, but today was crazy and I am just glad that we have the weekend to be a family. It is a blessing that I get to stay home but sometimes I feel like if I don't get out and go to the mall or Target I will go crazy!! :)

Well, tomorrow we are going to take out xmas light down on the outside....doesn't that sound fun!! I hope it doesn't rain!

I can honestly say I am sick and tired of my Christmas tree and lights! I wish the xmas fairy would come and take everything down and leave my house spick and span!! I guess for now I am that fairy! Maybe tomorrow it will all come down!! :)

Today and tomorrow are IT!! School starts and everything is back to normal. I am ready for life to slow down a bit. The holidays have been really busy. It's a fun busy but I am glad that it is finally over. No more hustle and bustle for another year! I know mom and dad are glad it's over too....they get their house back!! It seems like we were there for 2 weeks. You know what they say about company after a few, not really!!!

We are so lucky to have a wonderful family! This Christmas was another for the memory book!! :) I think our xmas tradition is so awesome and one that I will always cherish! Everyone got to make it....even baby Jack had his first Christmas at Nana and Poppi's!! He is such a good baby and we all had fun passing him around. Not to mention he is just adorable!! He looks just like Christine......just kidding, Matt!! He looks like you, too!! But, one of the BEST things this Christmas was Poppi finding out that his heart is in tip top shape! Praise God!! WE are so blessed.

Off to bed!! A busy day tomorrow putting away all my xmas decorations....anyone want to help??

Sick of Football

Happy New Year everyone!! Today has been a great new years day other than the fact that our TV has been on nothing but football. Troy has always watched sports and our TV has always been on ESPN but now to make matters 8 year old is LOVING all sports. (right now its football , of course) So until Macy gets older...its 2 against 1 and I'm usually watching my shows in the back room!!! ha ha

I can't believe it is 2005!! It seems like this year has flown by. The Sabrsula family had a very good year. Nothing toooo exciting to report...well, I guess our 10 year wedding anniversary is pretty exciting. Can you believe 10 years!! That's a long time. It really makes me feel old. We have had such a wonderful marriage and we are looking forward to, oh I guess, 70 more years!! WOW...can you even imagine!! We're talking denture city, baby!! hee hee No, really I can't ask for a better husband and father. He has made me a better person and I am thankful to God for giving me such a loving, caring, helpful, tender, hot :), and most of all christian husband to share my life with. We have gone through alot in our marriage and I'm sure many more obsticles to come but with God on our side we can do anything...right??? OK...I guess enough mushy but sometimes you just have to vent all your blessings and I count Troy among one of my richest blessings!! Even though sometimes the ESPN 24 hours a day drives me crazy!! ha ha

It's 11:15 pm and we are at Mom and Dads house and everyone but my little football freaks are in bed. Macy was so tired and ready for bed about 8:30 and we were all glad!! :) She's so much fun but when she doesn't get enough sleep she's a BEAR!! A cute bear but a bear nonetheless!

We had the Sabrsula family reunion today and that was very intersting. Alot of those relatives I have never met. Reid said he didn't even know Papa John had family! ha ha It was fun and the kids had a blast playing with all the other kids even though it took a while to warm up to each other. Family reuions can be a little weird.......I'll leave it at that!! hee hee

Well, this is my first offical post and to me it sounds stupid (Macy's new word...I need to be a little more careful!!) but I was bored so I thought I'd give it a try.

A very Happy 2005 to everyone...................PLAYBALL (oh that's baseball!! another season...ugggggg)
