Just What I Needed, Just in Time


Exercise
Devotion for youth/blog
School
Devotion with kids
Pick up trash in yard (Left a bag out and the animals paid a visit.  Yay.)
Laundry
Re-organize your desk. (The prefix, RE is important here…..implies a repetitive action.  Meaning I can’t keep it organized…. *rolls eyes*)
Prepare lunch
Play cards with the kids
Purge bookshelf and pack away for yard sale
Mop bathroom.  Again
Clean bedside table
Study lesson for youth tomorrow at church
Prepare dinner.  Fajitas

Pay car note.  Don’t forget!
Mop kitchen.  Again. 
Make grocery list.
Organize entertainment cabinet.

This is my to-do list for today.  Let me repeat.  This is my TO-DO LIST for TODAY!  As I look back over my list, I am completely overwhelmed.  Yesterday was a good day.  I made my list, felt really good about it, tackled it with fervor and gusto.  Yesterday I was productive.  Yesterday I worked my patooty off.

Today, I feel tired.  Overwhelmed.  Frustrated.  Today, I am on the verge of wanting to throw myself a pity party.  After all, check out that list.  And if truth be known, that’s not all I need to accomplish today.  Today, just looking at the list makes it hard to breathe.

I see nothing on the list that is about me.

What about adding a pedicure to the list?  I desperately need one.  There’s no time OR budget for that.

What about curling up with a good book?  It would be hard to focus with the kids constantly needing me.

What about a girls’ night out?  Get away from it all?  The hubby wouldn’t be thrilled about that.  Who would cook supper?  Besides, I haven’t talked to my ‘girls’ in so long, I’m not sure they remember who I am.

I toss my arms in the air in frustration.  I begin to become annoyed and agitated over the simplest things.  Someone is constantly needing something from me.  Chores are constantly calling me.

Doesn’t anyone see what all I do for them?  Don’t they appreciate anything?

That’s when the still small voice whispers, “I understand.  I love you.”

And my world begins to spin.  Just like that.

I am reminded of my amazing God who is mighty to save.  He who can move mountains, was there.  Listening to me complain.  He who commands the universe was there.  Listening to me whine.  He who created the heavens and the earth was there.  Watching me throw a full-blown pity party.

I’m sure my pitiful moaning, whining, and complaining were pretty pathetic in the eyes of my Lord.

But instead of scolding, I heard Him say, “I understand.  I love you.”

Instead of turning from me in frustration, He wrapped me in His love and comfort.  Reminding me of how my love and comfort are important for those I serve.

He does understand not being appreciated.  He does understand doing and doing and doing for others and getting nothing in return. He does understand giving your all to others, only to hear more demands.  More needs. More wants.

Suddenly, as I look back over my list, I realize I forgot to add quiet time to it.  With all I had to do, I had forgotten to make an appointment with my Rock.  My Strength.  My Love.  My Savior.

No wonder I feel overwhelmed!  I haven’t fueled up on God’s goodness. Quickly, I grab my Bible, my iPad (for worship tunes), and I fall to the couch.  I forget about the list.  I forget about all I have to do today because I realize without Him…. without His encouragement, I will accomplish nothing.

That’s how it happened.  Just like that.  God swooped in and gave me just what I needed, just in time.

I am re-fueled and ready to face my day.  I am energized and eager to tackle the tasks ahead.  The list is toast.  When God is with me, who can be against me?

My perspective has now changed.  Those items on my list, I will do to honor Him.  To be a good wife and mother.  To train my kids in the way they should go.  To serve my Lord.

After all, He’s done for me.  That’s the least I can do for Him.

Torturing the Kids and Conquering Middle-aged Syndrome


It’s Friday!  The first Friday of the New Year!  I can hardly type for wanting to break out into singing and dancing.  Not only is it the first full weekend of the new year, it’s also the first weekend since Thanksgiving that I have NOTHING written on the agenda.  I get to stay home! Wait for it……..  It gets even better!  Today is the day I get to force the kiddies to re-organize their bedrooms… under the beds and closets included.  Yep, freedom from obligations AND torturing the kiddies.  Double win!

But as I read back over that paragraph, I realize I sound like my grandma.  OLD.  But I’m only 40.  I can’t be old yet, right?  It’s just a coincidence that I’m looking forward to housework and laundry on a Friday, right?  So, I grabbed a paper and pen (another sign of old age….the LIST) and made a list of things about life that I actually enjoy and look forward to regularly.  I thought if I did such, I would feel better about my Friday excitement and realize I’m actually young and vibrant.  Ready to conquer the weekend.  So, here we go……

  • I love and live for the moment I can cast off my clothes and throw on my pajama pants and house shoes.  Matching them all up and looking fashionable is nice, but definitely optional.  After all, who is gonna see me besides my loves?

  • Finding a new scent for my Scentsy warmers brings me giddy excitement. Walking into my home and smelling Scentsy (rather than feet) helps me find my happy place.  When your house smells good, you just feel good!  By the way, the correct ratio of warmers to boys is 3 to 1.  I have 6 boys and one male dog….so I only need 21 warmers to attain maximum Scentopia.  FYI.

  • The ultimate goal of the day is to reach the time we can sit down as a family and watch the latest episode of Frasier on Netflix.  Before Frasier it was Lost.  And Everybody Loves Raymond.  And Little House on the Prairie.  And Reba.

 

  • I know, I know, it’s a lot to take in.  But try to stay with me, ok?

 

  • I’m currently on a mission to organize my house.  It was a resolution for the New Year. I’ve always wanted to be organized and stay organized.  It just never works for me.  But I must say, accomplishing just one cabinet makes me inexplicably happy.  I even thought about snapping pics and posting….. but my kids informed me no one cared that I finally organized my medicine cabinet. Besides, it will be a complete mess again next week.  Geeeshhhhh.

So, organization has eluded me all these years. I’m gonna keep trying!

  • I have a party at least once a week in my home.  I crank up the tunes and get my dance on……..while cleaning the house.  Dancing your way through chores is the bomb diggity (note my use of a young phrase ;-))

            So, yea, that’s not me.  But I’m sure I carry it off just as well!

  • A great night-time activity is catching up on what’s going on in the world….on Facebook.  Who needs real social interaction when you can plop on the couch and scroll through your newsfeed instead?

 

  • Don’t worry.  You too, can achieve this maximum level of youthfulness.  Tackle one thing a week until you can handle all of this at once. You can do it!

 

  • I look forward each week to making lists…. to help me be more organized of course.  Not because I would forget things.  Menu planning and daily to-do lists are so much fun to check off as you go!

 

  • Lastly, my favorite stores are those that have special deals on housewares.  Like Ross and Marshall’s.  You can get beautiful things for your home at a fraction of the cost. I do realize I sound like a commercial, but it’s true!

I know what you’re thinking.  You’re thinking I’m definitely showing my age.  I’ve crawled into the pit of the middle-aged woman, never to return to youthful fun and excitement.  And maybe you’re right. Who knows?

  All I know is I love my life.  I love where I am now.  Mismatched PJ pants and all.  I love making lists and decorating my house.  And I love planning what I will cook next.  And if you love what you do, that’s half the battle.

So, I will go on and plan what to organize next and turn up the tunes and break out into dance while washing dishes.  Because that’s what makes me happy.  I will rejoice over being able to stay home on Friday and Saturday night.

And hey, today I get to torture the kids and make them organize their own rooms!

Woohoooo!!

Life is good!

Get your happy dance on!

The sad part to all this, is I’m actually looking forward to the chance to do housework and laundry.  A quiet day with normal and mundane chores.  Seriously?  Have I gotten THAT old?   Surely not.  It just can’t be.

All I Want for Christmas….


 

The Christmas Season is here.  That brings on the perpetual wish lists.  Since I have five kids, this could bring on a tad bit of stress.  All these lists.  So many wishes, so little money.  I have tried to teach my kids to prioritize and realize I actually do NOT have a money tree in the backyard.  Be conservative.

Apparently, they’ve been listening pretty well. Yea, right.

For example, the baby boy……he has trouble thinking of something he wants.  A new football.  A new football jersey or three.  A remote control car.  A snare drum.  That will do it.  Of course, as time goes on, he thinks of other random things he wants, too.  But he doesn’t add them to the official list.  It’s on the Santa list.  Cause that won’t cost mom money.  Humph.

English: A snare drum. Español: una caja orque...

Image via Wikipedia

Then there is the next kiddo in line…. He realizes he needs to be conservative, but he has a massive list.  You know just in case Santa is actually real.  In that case, mom’s lack of a money tree shouldn’t matter and the sky is the limit.  Smart kid right there.  I’m just not sure exactly how to go about bursting that bubble of optimism. His list includes…. a REAL piano, interactive Toy Story toys (that range from $45-60 EACH).  He only wants the Lotso Bear, Rex, Bullseye (one of the most rare), and Hamm.  Then there is a list of CDs, Comic Books, and even a few movies thrown in.  As I had my head hanging between my knees trying to come out of my state of hyperventilating, he says, “Mom, I don’t want to be any trouble.  So, take the piano off my list.  I can practice at Grandma’s.  I can do without it.”  The piano was his number one request.   Most desired.  Hmmm…..either he’s brilliant and securing the score by making me think he is willing to sacrifice, or he really IS learning.  Either way.  The piano is his.  Geeeezzzz……

Next comes the real piece of work…..Cam.  He is the classic middle child.  He keeps our life interesting.  When I don’t need to pull my hair out from his antics, I am completely entertained.  But his Christmas list simply sends me into a state of panic.  I only need to win the lotto to even come close.

“I’ve been listening, Mom.  I don’t actually expect you to get me all of these things.  I just want you to have plenty of ideas and if you happen to hit really good sales, you will have plenty to choose from.  And then Santa can pick up some of what’s left.  It’s the dream list, mom.  The ultimate.  I know I’m not gonna get it all.  You always tell me you get more when you expect more.  High expectations yield high results.”

Ouch.  Gotta love it when your own words come back to bite you in the you know what.

So, his list…..it’s color coded.  Each color represents the amount of gotta have it.  For example, items in red = can’t live without; items in green = really, really want;  items in black = take it or leave it, but I really want to take it. His list is three hand-written pages.  Seriously.  For real.

Thanks, Cam.  Now, when I get only a fraction of your list, I can feel like a big fat Santa failure.  But hey, you don’t actually expect to get it all, right?????

By the time I finished recovering from the presenting of these lists, I decided the two oldest boys were grown.  They are 19 and 20.  Out of the house.  In college.  Santa was over for them.  They better choose and choose wisely.  I wanted a list, but a small one.  Of course, that went over like a lead balloon. I believe the requests were a new car, pay for my housing for spring semester, and cash, cash, and more cash.  Oh and lots of little presents.

I literally looked at them and wondered who had taken over their bodies.  Where were the children I raised??

But that’s when it happened.  I’m not sure if it was a ploy to remind me of the fact that I would want goodies for Christmas, or a sincere request, but they asked me what I wanted for Christmas.  They even asked for a list.  Woohoo!!!!!!!  Paybacks can be sweet!!!!

I couldn’t help myself.  I needed a good laugh.  So, I made the little turkeys a list.  Bahahahahaaaa…… And it looks something like this…

All I want for Christmas is………..

♥  A new Kitchen-Aid mixer.  If you really shop the sales, you can find one for a little over $200.

♥ An iPad.  Any kind acceptable.

♥ The new iPhone 4S.  They are sooooo cool!

♥ Because I don’t want to overload you TOO much, that’s all.  Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.  I can’t wait!!! 

The look on their little faces was priceless.  They quickly informed me, ,”We don’t have that kind of money.   There is NO way, we can afford any of those things….. even if we pool together.  You know this!”

I quickly explained I knew EXACTLY how they felt.

And there it was.  Lesson learned.  They began dropping things off their lists like crazy.  They narrowed their lists down to what they really want.  They are even shopping thrift stores for gifts for each other and making some homemade gifts.  They are paying attention to prices.

Score one for Mom!

Now, I just need to take up donations.  After all, Santa COULD bring me all of the things on MY list!  😉

How Bout Them Cowboys?????


A legend was born on this day.  A day of memories that will be handed down from generation to generation.  Well, that might be a tad bit dramatic, but it’s certainly a day I’ll never forget.

It was my first NFL football game.

And it was a Cowboys’ game.

On Thanksgiving Day.

You just don’t get much better than that.  Before this day in history, I was just a lukewarm, could care less football fan.  I watched out of duty for the many crazed football fans in my family.  My mom, Killa, and my oldest, Bud, who are both die hard Cowboys fans.  Then there’s the Miami Dolphins fan, Adam…. #2 boy.  Stevo, #4 boy, is a Steelers fan and generally opposes any team anyone else likes.  Lastly, baby boy #5, Braedon, is a Colts fan.  Lots of football love in my house.  That leaves the middle boy, Dad, and I floundering during football season.

Til now.

Did I mention we are a CrAzY bunch??

My mom was determined for all of us to go to a football game together.  My family, mom, and my brother’s family (Texans fans).  The plans for this special day had been in the works for months.  I tried my best to muster up some excitement.  For their sake.

The day finally came.  We all covered ourselves in Cowboy clothing….well, except Adam.  He donned his Miami Dolphin gear and even recruited Cameron, the middle, could care less about football boy, to be a Dolphins fan for the day.  We even planned low-key tailgating.  The game didn’t start until 3:00, but we left about 8:0o that morning to head to the stadium (less than an hour away).

This view will cost you $60!

It was amazing.  After paying $60 per vehicle to simply park, we unloaded and tailgated from our cars.  We had a sandwich fixing buffet, played washers, threw the football around, and scanned the Black Friday ads.

Afterwards, we headed into a game that wouldn’t be decided until the last 10 seconds. We had an absolute blast.  I found myself screaming and jumping up and down, high-fiving strangers…..all for the love of the Cowboys.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’re here!

In my next life, I’m gonna be a DC Cheerleader!

My favorite tight end….#82…Go Witten!

I have never like Romo…but after seeing him in action, even I’m impressed!

Of course Romo just isn’t the tight end Witten is….bahaha!

 

Killa and Baby Boy #5

That’s the moment it happened.  I was completely transformed.  After the experience I had, I can no longer be a lukewarm, take it or leave it, football fan.  I came out of there in love with the Cowboys.  For better or worse.  With or without Romo, I pledge my allegiance to the Dallas Cowboys.  Now, I’ve just gotta start saving my pennies for next year’s game.

He was really excited about that touchdown!

Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Dancing, Thankfulness, and Retail Therapy


I have been absent from blogging for several days.  My life has been extremely stressful for the past couple of weeks.  But things are looking up.  Well, sort of.  I’m going to get the rare opportunity to escape the reality of life’s stress and have my very own little play party.  Seriously.  At risk of turning you completely green with envy, I’m gonna let you in on my exciting week to come.

♥  Tomorrow my baby boys will be home.  All of them.  All five.  In one nest.  At one time.  The last time that happened was Halloween.  Yes, I realize that was only a few weeks ago, but it feels like  FOR.EV.AH.  I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve.  I am slightly excited.  Somebody might better remind me of that tomorrow when I’m in the middle of cooking for my clan!  It takes a lot to feed these turkeys. =D

 

♥  Wednesday morning we will pull out and head for the Big D.  We will be staying a few days with my aunt and uncle who are the ultimate hosts.  They have one of those houses that is beautiful, scarily clean, yet comfy.  I love going there.  I can forget the worries of housework, because somehow their house is always clean.  No matter how many people they have over.  It’s weird how that happens.   Plus, she is cooking Thanksgiving dinner for us.  All we were asked to bring is drinks for our family.  A whole, entire, Thanksgiving meal that I don’t have to cook.  Woohooooo!!!   I will be happy dancing all the way to Dallas!

♥  So, let’s see.  We are up to Thursday, Thanksgiving Day.  It’s Cowboy time ba—beee!  We are ALL loading up and heading out the Dallas Cowboy football game.  It will be my first NFL football game.  We are even gonna do a little low-key tailgating.  Another first.  I think I will add that to my Pushing Up Daisies List, just so I can mark it off.   I just might be happy dancing in my sleep!

 

♥  And, then, it’s the Big Kahuna……..the whole enchilada…….the be all, end all, of the ultimate Thansgiving holiday……..Black Friday!! Sales start at 10pm.  I will be there with my game face on!  And, on top of the ultimate shopping as a contact sport experience, the hubby will be taking the kids back home.  So I will also finish the trip with a kid-free night.  Retail therapy and girl time!!   Woop!  Woop!

And as if that’s not enough to make you roll your eyes and wanna slap me silly………all my Christmas decorations are up and running.  Lights twinkling.  Christmas music playing.  The kids advent calendar is almost finished and ready for lift-off.  I will come home ready to wrap gifts and enjoy the Christmas season.

Have I ever told you quitting my job and becoming a stay-at-home mom was the absolute best thing I ever did?  Well, it was and I’m telling you now.  I am completely blessed and overwhelmed by the love and grace of my heavenly Father.  I’m just hard-headed enough to fight tooth and nail.  I was just certain we couldn’t financially make it one one income.  I’m living proof that if you will follow God’s calling on your life, joy and contentment will find their way to you.  I am so blessed to have Him directing my life.  Him loving me through my hard-headed ways.  Him pushing until I surrendered.  So this week, although I might be MIA from the blogging world (I’m gonna try, but can’t make any promises.), I will be praising God for the many blessings in my life.  Getting recharged.  Refreshed.  And I will for sure be having loads of FUN!!!

And for all of this, I’m truly thankful.

Mini Fritattas & French Toast Cinnamon Roll Bake = YUM!


I stayed up until 2:00am last night.  So, about 3:30 today I crashed.  Totally zonked.  Complete with drool running down my chin.

About 5:30ish, I woke up to realize NOTHING was planned for dinner AND I was out of freezer meals.   I thought about ordering DQ, but I’m much faster…and much better.  So, I got my sleepy patooty up and went to the computer.  We have chickens.  And that equals eggs.  Lots of fresh eggs.  And I had found some new recipes on Pinterest I wanted to try.  And they both called for a lot of eggs.  So, tonight, breakfast was what’s for dinner.  And it was delish!  And easy!  So much so, I decided I MUST share.


 

 

 

Mini Fritattas

These were easy and fun!

The recipe is simple as can be:

Beat 8 eggs and 1/2 cup of half and half.  Add salt and pepper as you would to scrambled eggs.

Pour eggs into a well greased muffin tin (12 muffin cups).

Add whatever fillings you like to each!!

I set up my fillings buffet style and had the kids come and create their own.  They loved it!

Our fillings of choice were:  fresh spinach, fresh mushrooms, onions, diced ham, fried bacon, Italian blend shredded cheese, Paremesan cheese, and Mexican blend shredded cheese.

I was really worried they would stick because when I scramble eggs, I always have some stickage issues!  But, I was pleasantly surprised.  The fritattas popped right out of the muffin tins.

Serve with salsa for an added zing!

 

 

 

 

French Toast Cinnamon Roll Bake

This was super duper easy as well.  The recipe called for pecans, but my boys didn’t want them, so I left them out.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup melted butter
2 cans (12.4 oz each) Pillsbury® refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
5 eggs
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup maple syrup

Directions:

Melt butter and pour into a well-greased 13 x 9 inch pan.  Sprinkle cinnamon over butter.

Cut the cinnamon rolls into small pieces (8 each).  Lay into the bottom of the pan.

Beat eggs well and add cream, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Mix until well blended.

Pour over cinnamon roll pieces.

Sprinkle with pecans and drizzle syrup over the top.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Remove from oven.

Heat the icing from the cinnamon rolls in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.

Drizzle icing over the top.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Serve with syrup…. although I did NOT.  It’s already going to send you into sugar shock!

 

Enjoy!!

Randomness………Really.


Today has been some kinda day!  Busy every moment.  Yes, EVERY moment.  It has been chaotic!   Til now.  Yay!

Since I used up all my emotional energy, my thinking cap is burnt out, and I’m just plain ole tired, I decided to bless you with a random list!

Druuummmmmm roll, puh-leeeze!!

♥  Tonight was our church Thanksgiving meal.  Food was everywhere.  Seriously.  Tons. of. food.  But you know what was the absolute BEST thing about it??  My boys telling me (on the way home), “I just didn’t like anything they had except the dumplings, cobbler, and acorn cookie thingies.”  What’s the big deal about that??  Momma made all of those things!!  And believe me, we have some master cooks in our church.  So that’s a HUGE compliment!  Momma is rocking the kitchen….. and by Momma, I mean ME.  =D

♥  Speaking of acorn cookie thingies….. I made two things I found on Pinterest.  Yessirreee, Bob.  I made the acorn thingies AND pilgrim hats.  I was really hoping to get a pic, but since we were running last minute finishing them, I didn’t.  And they were all gone after the dinner.  Yay!

Pic from Pinterest…….but mine were adorable, too!

♥  I realize today I’m using the word YAY a bit too much.  But, it just really reflects my mood.  And since my ADHD is in overdrive, I just don’t want to try to come up with anything else.  At the risk of sounding redundant….YAY!

♥  I have got to get off my patooty and find my battery charger for my camera.  For some reason, I can never keep up with that thing.  Oh, wait, the reason is I’m totally scatterbrained.  Yep, that’s it.  Couldn’t keep up with my rear if it wasn’t attached at the hip.

♥  Pandas are seriously adorable creatures.  I have never seen one in real life.  It would probably be disappointing since their white fur would probably be filthy.  But they are still beautiful animals.  But my favorite are still flamingos.

♥  I don’t really watch the news much anymore.  It’s WAY depressing.  But my mom was telling me about this old pervert coach from Penn State who has been abusing young boys for YEARS.  So, I’ve just gotta say, every staff member and friend that knew about this crap and did nothing should be sent up the river with him.  Oh, and telling someone who did nothing is not enough.  You keep telling till someone does something.  Everyone of them………up the river.

♥  Some people crack me up.  Since this month is Thanksgiving, Facebook is over-run with thankful posts.  And yes, I’m posting them too.  Don’t judge.  It’s not a bad thing.  But what cracks me up are people who actually post the same thing (with different wording) almost every day.  Some people have such tunnel vision that all they can see is themselves.  So they just keep saying the same things over and over and over.  Oh, oh….and how about the “I’m thankful for my dad, sis, bro, mom, dog, son, daughter, house, job, and car.  That will do for the first half of the month.”  Seriously?  Are you really thankful?

Image representing Facebook as depicted in Cru...

♥  And then there’s THOSE  OTHER people.  You know, the ones who apparently have nothing better to do than sit around count how many times someone has posted the same thankful post.  And then they have the nerve to rate someone’s thankful heart just based on a stupid FB post.  Geeeeeeezzzzz, S.O.M.E.O.N.E. needs a life!

♥  Do pajamas really have to match?  I mean, does it really matter if my PJ pants and my top match?  When does it matter?  When I have company over?  When I go visit someone else?  Or never?  Really?  Is it important?

♥  And now my pet word must be really.  Just in case you didn’t notice.

♥  Hurley on Lost just needs to shave.  I don’t care if you’re stuck on a deserted island.  Just shave.  Dude, it’s really gross.  And hey, there was all kinds of junk in the wreckage.  Surely you can find something to shave with.  Jin is ALWAYS clean shaven.

 

 

 

 

 

Hurley

 

 

Jin…like I said, ALWAYS clean shaven!

 

 

 

♥  Have I told you I get to go to the Dallas Cowboy football game on Thanksgiving Day?  Yep, I’m just that cool.  Gonna tailgate and everything!  Plus, the Black Friday sales start at 10pm Thanksgiving night.  Just makes me so excited I’m giddy.  I get butterflies just thinking about it.  Next week is gonna be good week.

 

♥  Speaking of Black Friday…….I better go browse the ads.  They are already online and I’ve taken a peek at them, but I need to start making a plan of attack list.  I would go into detail, but that’s definitely  for another post.  Besides, all I can think about now is….

sh-op-ping!!!!!!!!!

So off I go!!!!!!!

Later Gator!!
