The Friday blues

I made a really big mistake today. I went to my new...well, was that is no longer mine. Does that make sense? I had to go turn in my cancellation papers to get some of our earnest money back. I was ok until I thought it was a good idea to drive by the house and see how it looked. I love the brick, the stone...I did pretty good, if I do say so myself. ;) Then, I thought it would be a good idea to go inside and see what all my "stuff" looked like. I mean I did pick it out. Well, it wasn't a good idea. I mean, don't get me looks beautiful. The granite, tile and cabinets are all in. I heart my has an island.....but, now someone else can enjoy my colors, my sink, my tile, my fireplace, my pretty garden tub.... (((sigh))) I thought I was doing ok until Troy called to see how my day was going and I started to cry. It was that ugly cry. You know the cry where your nose starts running and you have no tissue so you have to use your shirt. Yes, that was me. I'm sure he thought I had lost my marbles. But, the sweet hubby that he is, he reassured me that everything was going to be ok and things would work out and we were blessed no matter what. I love that man!

I just have to keep thinking that God has other plans for my family. I have no idea what that is and I can't wait to find out. There are days where I need clarity on that and I think today is one of those days.

I am really tired of looking at my old post so I guess I need to blog. There isn't much new to say but I felt the need to update. We have been doing the same ole, same ole around here. The kids are still keeping us busy and we are still loving every minute of it. I thought I'd post some pics for those who stop by. Since blogger is being a little persnickety today, they are in random order.

My #5 waiting to take the field. He is really loving football this year. He has got a lot of playing time and it is so sweet to hear him and his Dad talk about the game, plays, etc....

Here is one of the coolest cheerleaders ever! She loves to root for her brother. She even has some cheers memorized! It's hilarious!

Getting set up for a play! Go Eagles!

I have been going coupon crazy lately. I saved over 50.00 on this shopping extravangza! I think Poppi would be super proud of me.

We spent a fun fall Saturday at our local High School football game. Reid likes to go to hang out with his buddies and of course, watch football. Yeah, right. Macy and I love to watch the cheerleaders, band and Flairs! We really love the Flairs because we get to watch one of our favorite friends dance!

Macy and Reagan think that Victoria is the best! I have to agree! She is one sweet girl and we enjoyed our day getting to watch her perform. Way to go Victoria!

I had to make a post today since it is 10-10-10. Macy has been making wishes all day. I want to tell her how I wish it was that easy! She even asked me to tell her when it was 10:10 on 10-10-10. ha! Hope you have a great week!
