A hunting we did go, A hunting we did go...

...high-hoe the dairy Oh, a hunting we did go!

I don't know why when I look at the picture above, I think about this image...

This was my first time hunting. Well, let me rephrase that...this was my first time hunting where I was actually old enough to remember the whole trip and I was able to shoot a gun...sorry Dad didn't mean to offend you. Prior to this trip, the only memories I have of hunting is sitting in the bottom of a deer blind, in the cold and humid dark, praying the whole time we wouldn't see a deer...I couldn't handle the thought of Bambi being shot. God answered my prayers that day.

Anyway, I will admit, we had a good time. It was fun to see Vim's face light up and get excited like a kid on Christmas morning. He has been wanting to take me hunting for a while, but he was smart enough to realize that the only way he was going to get me out there was if (a) I didn't have to get up before the sun (b) I didn't have to be cold or wet (c) I didn't have to sit in silence for hours. None of these things appeal to me. And I haven't even mentioned the part about killing and cleaning the animals.

Many women hunt and more power to them...but I don't foresee this becoming our 'couples' sport anytime in the near future. It was fun but not that fun.

This weekend we took our little Man to his first Fightin' Texas Aggie Football game.

Here are some of the highlights:

- Whenever the 12th Man towels were being waved in the air, little Man would start waving back (without a towel)...I think he thought the whole student side was waving at him.

- During several 'quieter' moments and a time out, little Man yelled out 'GO AGGIES!'

- A fly over by 4 army helicopters. And since we were at the top of The Zone, we were able to see the pilots waving at us as they flew by.

- Of course the Aggie Band, it never gets old and give me chills every time.

- At the end of the night, whenever asked what his favorite part of the game, little Man answered 'Everything! Everything was my favorite!'

WHOOP! To brain washing him early.

Happy 18th Birthday Sis!

Talk about being 'Head' of the Table...
Does anyone else find it a little creepy, or is it just me??
You would think that we traveled to some foreign country to have Sam's birthday dinner...but this is in the states...in Texas...in Suburbanite land.
Anyway, hope you had a great 18th birthday, my favor-ist youngest sis'ta. Love ya!

Ahhh, this is the life...

Oh to be a boat dog...the wind in your face, the best seat in the house...
you can't help but smile.

2 Whole Days!

It's official...I have officially moved to Part Time. Of course not as a mother but as a 'Career Woman'. And although this is only my first week to try it on for size, I am already loooving it. And for those of you (specifically the Men-- am I being Sexist?) who possibly might start thinking 'of course she's loving it since she now will be enjoying cherry bon bons, Mani-Pedis, and shopping galore'...let me stop you by saying 'Don't even go there'.
I have heard it all...from 'Ohhh, it must be nice not having to work FT' to 'What are you going to do now with all your free time, relax?'

These are some of the reasons why I love it:
  • Trips to Wally World (or 'Wal-hell' as my precious husband calls it) are made early in the day when check out lines are near nonexistent...no longer at 10 o'clock at night.

  • Laundry is now done in one day instead of spreading it across 3 or 4 days.

  • Boxes are starting to be unpacked that were packed back in January.

  • Toys and clothing are being donated and moved out of our house.

  • Little Superman is picked up earlier from school and we now have more one on one time.

  • And my house is clean, not just picked up, but cleaaann..oh how I love the smell of Clorox Clean Up!

Two whole days to take care of household tasks...I know that some of you are thinking, 'Are you telling me that you never shop or do anything other than clean?' I admit, 6 hrs a month I attend a MOPs group, 3hrs every 2 months I get my hair done, and occasionally I do shop...its hard to pass up a good Sale!

All this to say, I am just grateful that now I have more time to take care of my family...and no its not all about shopping (just a little bit about shopping ; )
