Time flies....

I just tucked my baby into bed, read books, prayed, kissed and then as I left...cried. Why am I taking this Kindergarten thing so bad? I just feel so sad. I stood in her room remembering where her baby bed once was and how I would rock her at all hours of the night praying for her. Now, she has big girl stuff and now I step on Polly Pockets and Barbie shoes! ha Oh, I know she will do good. I know she will make friends. Its just I have been with her 24/7 for the last 5 years and tomorrow I will come home alone. I know it sounds pitiful and I know this time tomorrow night I will be fine. Really I will. Time just goes by too fast. Please keep her in your prayers as she starts this new adventure of her life. Because, watch out comes "LuLu".

As I tucked my other sweet baby into bed, we talked, we prayed and yes, he still gives me kisses. ha ha And thankfully he is full of excitement. His clothes were laid out in perfect order. Shirt, shorts, belt, socks and new Nike Shocks. He has been my little fashion bug lately. He has always loved shopping. HA This is the first year in a long time he hasn't cried from worrying about the first day of school. I think his teacher is awesome and he is really excited about having her. I just know it is going to be a good year...I can feel it in my bones. Or I guess I could say my mommy "gut" feeling. He also has friends in his class this year. Last year, remember...BAD! So, this year we have people we know and a great teacher. We are blessed. I also ask that you keep Rooster in your prayers for a good year, good choices and good times. Man, I love that boy.

I will post first day of school pictures soon. I love those first day of school pics, you know, the ones in front of the house with the backpacks on and ready to go. Mom used to always take one of us when we were little. I love those. :) Oh, the memories!

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you. Philippians 1:3

Coffee makes me happy

I saw this picture while "surfing" the net today. I loved it and had to post it. It is totally me. Truth be told, I have only liked, no loved, coffee for about a two years. I always swore that I would never drink it. My Mom always said I would and I said not on your life. My mom and my Nana drink it religiously and not only in the morning. They have afternoon coffee as well....with Mable across the street. Doesn't that sound like fun? Well, it is and Mable and Nana together is good for the soul. They have been best friends for over 30 years and have been through alot together. Well, that's for another post. HA Anyway, back to my dislike of coffee.....I even hated the smell of it. I never in a million years thought when I was in my 30's that I would become my mothers child and drink a whole pot of coffee BY MYSELF. Well, I do and so do my girlfriends. And we love it and we are proud of it! HA Coffee rules. Coffee gives you energy. Coffee smells good. Coffee makes me happy....well, with Pralines and Cream creamer (thanks, Lacie!) So, I guess you could say I am a coffee addict and love every minute of it! And now I am waiting on my sister to adore it as well. Just give it time, sis and you will come to love it!

Am I crazy?

Whew...I did it. It's done. I registered for my 2nd Half Marathon AND I treated myself this year and made reservations at the hotel right outside from the start line. I am really excited about running this year. Last year I was a newbie, this year....well, still feel like a newbie but getting better. HA! I really want to better my time this year. Last year, my time was bad but hey, we stopped and danced with the bands, hugged family members, ate oranges & M and M's and stopped at Valero to pee. HA! We were all having a great time and we just wanted to say we finished! Well, I still want to say I finished but with a better time than last year. Who would have ever thought I would ever be a runner. Well I am. My name is Heather and I am a runner. Boy, that feels good.

Now, I am trying to get my honey to run with me...we'll see.
