Stressful Week

Well, Sunday started off wonderful.ย Atleighs first Sunday in church. Dallas carrying her and rocking the pink camo diaper bag. #hedontmind Thank you Dakota and Jossie for letting me make this sweet memory with my buddy.IMG_20170730_122348739.jpgIMG_20170730_121459706.jpg

By that evening it all changed. We had all been worried that Atleigh was urinating way too much for her age and was afraid she would get dehydrated. She pees more than she takes in in other words. They were afraid she wasn’t retaining her normal water weight. So they took her to the ER and they couldn’t find anything so they transferred her by ambulance to Leboneur in Memphis, TN.


After 4 days of enduring being poked and prodded and still remaining a happy, smiley baby, all tests come back negative or normal. Even after with holding two feedings she still peed alot. Two things me and Atleigh have in common, we don’t like to skip meals, and we pee alot. It still puzzles them but she is now over 12lbs at 6 wks old and is not getting dehydrated.


We had some worried, stressed and exhausted kids. You can’t get any sleep in hospitals by the way. Daddy made her feel better all the time.ย FB_IMG_1501709938359.jpg



We didn’t go to the hospital because there was not enough seating room in the room and I did not want to spend the time in the waiting room either. I felt like we would have gotten in every ones way so we hung back in case they needed us to bring them anything. I had to stay busy cause I was going crazy for my kids sakes. All I could do was pray and pray. I got mad at myself because I felt my faith lacking. I was scared. I just lost it one day and just had to let it out and have a good cry. My husband asked why I stressed so much and needed to quit doing that. Men, a word of advice, don’t ever tell your wife that if you don’t want her hands around your neck. Just hold them and let them cry it out.

All we could do was stay busy. So dear hubby (to whom I did not choke) got busy finishing those projects I told you about. Well, here is the first:



After waiting for 4 months for two different people to keep telling us they would get to us, we got tired of waiting, so he just did it himself. He replaced my door with a smaller one on one of our out buildings that kids would leave open in not one but several 60mph wind with thunderstorms and it rip your door off. Back to normal now.

Then he made use of some wasted space in our utility room and made a closet to put our dirty laundry baskets in and shoes from when we come in.



I am so excited. It organized and hid everything from plain sight of company. Now we are going to repaint in there sometime.

Then we got a phone call that our grand blessing was getting to come home. They made it safe and sound.

The same day which was today was Dallas’ big day.

WOW! Freshmen Day, first day of High School. Where has the time gone? He was up at 5am, excited and a little nervous but you wouldn’t know it. Just confident.
He’s not so little anymore. Make the most of it son and do your best this year. The safety of our future is in your hands. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ท



Our town doesn’t have a high school so they have to go to the next town and go where the high school is located. Same as Dakota and Jossie did. The elementary school transports the high school students to the high school. He kind of likes it. Our next door neighbor is the bus driver so my kids are kind of protective of her. He had a good day today and they are all excited.

We are getting the house and yard ready for Saturday. We are having a meet and greet party for Atleigh for family and friends now that she has had her shots. It has been a busy and stressful week none the less. But we’re good and God has blessed and answered prayers.

Ending To A Good Day

Today started off with karate first thing. So I dropped Dallas off and went to run errands. I had to get his school supplies. Check. Am I ready for school to start so soon? Ummm….Nope. We were just having fun.

The first day of school however, he does have to change his schedule. He is not going to take football ๐Ÿˆ this year because there are a few classes he wants to take besides his required classes. ย He just can’t fit all them in this year. Also, he is taking Honors English and they had a summer reading project to do and we forgot all about it so now we are hustling trying to get it done. It is due the first day of school.

I got back to class and sat and wrote down recipes I had saved to my phone.

We got home and I needed to complete a little project that I should have already done. Dear hubby bought me a dress back early summer but it just needed a little pick me up, so one time while we were in AR he took me to Hobby Lobby to let me find something to dress it up with. This is what I found.ย IMG_20170729_130517297.jpg

It worked great.

Then they took a nap so I just stayed in my sewing room and went through my stash of projects to do and pulled out these and watched the video on YouTube while I did them. A few minutes later and I had these. Towel bibs for Atleigh. Super simple.ย IMG_20170729_160421531.jpg

The other night Dakota and Atleigh came and waited for Jossie to get off work. When your little Princess wants you in the floor with her, you get in the floor with her.ย IMG_20170729_131244.jpg

You know, it’s just the little things.


Well, now I have to go whip up something for supper. Rotel Chicken sounds pretty good.

Hope everyone enjoys their night.

God Bless.

Todays Agenda

Todays forecast read 99% chance of laziness. Yep, it rained most of the night and morning. It was raining when we got up so we were lazy. Dear hubby finally got up and made us brunch.

We had to make ourselves do something. Dear hubby got busy working on the project he’s got started for me. Can’t tell you yet. Lol. I got busy scrubbing down my kitchen. Thats the only part of canning season I hate. I had corn and tomatoes everywhere. Oh well, it’s the price you pay.

I had Dallas going through our school supplies to see what needs to be replenished in our stash and what he needs for school. After karate class tomorrow we will run and pick up some more school stuff. I can’t believe our summer break is over. Kind of sad. First day of high school. Gosh, how time flies.

Well, its been a long day, think I’ll turn in.

Cya and God Bless

Fun Day

For the past month we have done nothing but work like dogs ๐Ÿ• around here. So, we finally took a day off and had a fun day. I got to spend some time with my momma finally.ย PhotoGrid_1501160943754.jpg

Dallas had been wanting to take Sierra and get her out. She had so much fun.ย PhotoGrid_1501161090799.jpg

Dakota and Jossie joined us later. They have been keeping Atleigh in as not to expose her yet to big crowds because she has not had her first set of shots yet, but they just couldn’t stand seeing us have fun, so here they came. Atleighs first swim.ย PhotoGrid_1501161229147.jpg

We were very careful not to get her in the sun โ›… too much. We kept her in the shade.ย PhotoGrid_1501161290530.jpg

The boys had a good time playing too. Dakota has been with Atleigh all week while Jossie has been working and he needed some fun time too.ย PhotoGrid_1501161344999.jpg

It was such a good day. Dear hubby does not like to swim (the military wore him out on that) so he was at home working on a project in the house ๐Ÿ  for us that was long overdue. I will post pics later.

His enjoyment is on the boat fishing ๐ŸŽฃ. Jossie had to go into work later so Dakota and Atleigh came and ate with us. So Poppie got to see his Princess anyway.ย IMG_20170727_072331.jpg

I was glad to have some down time. We plan to do more but some may have to be done even after school ๐Ÿซ starts.

Now it’s back to working and getting things done. My next big picking of tomatoes, I’m going to make Pioneer Womans home made Enchilada sauce. It is wonderful.

Dear hubby is still working on some projects I have on a to do list he told me to make for him.

Dallas (cowboy) is still keeping up with the yards.ย IMG_20170724_113218.jpg

Thank you all for being patient with me.
