I’m having a hard time finding something to blog about tonight. My mind is recovering from the full day the kids and I had. I just want to lay here and relax.

Kid free.

iTunes radio on.

Lucy curled up next to me.

Sounds pretty nice, huh? After this blog is finished, I’m going to make a cup of coffee and enjoy a movie.

Here’s a few things on my mind at the moment.

*Home school is going great. The boys are doing well and adjusting to the fact that it’s a daily thing. After breakfast they are allowed time to play and do morning routine. Once I tell them it’s time to do school they’re ready and willing to learn. I 100% believe we are making the best decision for them no matter what others may think.

*Running. We haven’t run at all this week and I’m a little ashamed to admit that. We need to run tomorrow. No exceptions.

*I really want to start doing yoga again. It’s been on my mind a lot lately and I haven’t made the time to do it. I’m sure there’s a reason I keep thinking about it. I need to get my lazy butt in gear.

*I just remembered I have 2 loads of laundry in the garage. Total bummer! I guess I’ll get to that as my coffee is brewing.

*I need to get the boys some winter clothes.

*Speaking of winter….Christmas is in 84 days. What the heck!

*My last doctor appointment for my hand is Thursday. I’m so ready to get it over with and be done with all this wreck stuff. My hand is probably 95% back to normal. I can live with that. There’s still things I can’t do, but I’m hopeful that one day it’ll be 100%. You know what bothers me? I swear I’m not making this up….my finger nail is different. It has started growing weird. It’s like super curved and it drives me crazy! It must have had something to do with the cast.

*I’m loving the weather lately. I need to make sure and let the boys enjoy it before it gets to cold. I see plenty of trips to the park this month.

*We watched the movie Olympus Has Fallen last night. It’s your typical one man saves the world type of movie, but it was good. It kept me on edge the entire movie. We also watched Oblivion a few nights ago. It was super good! Definitely worth a watch if you haven’t seen it. (I’ve been a movie mood lately)

*I love Apple. I’m a iPhone user for life, but iOS 7 is starting to disappoint me. Only in one area. (It’s not giving me vertigo or anything crazy.) My messages are all jacked up. Most of the time I can’t send or receive any text/iMessages. I updated yesterday with the bug fix update they came out with. It’s helped the situation, but it’s still being crazy here and there. I know Apple will fix the problem, I just hope it’s sooner than later.

Well folks…I think I better get to that laundry. Thankfully it’s towels and they’re quick and easy. Enjoy your Wednesday. The week is halfway over and the weekend will be here before we know it.

Today is our last full day in Eureka Springs. Although I will be sad to leave, we are ready to get back home. It’s been amazing staying with our friends. Much better than staying in a hotel, but it’s never the same as your own bed.

Today we did a little exploring around town, enjoyed lunch at Magnetic Spring, and took the boys to the park.

It was the perfect weather for the park. We had a great time while we were there. Eureka has a really great park. It’s definitely one of our favorites.

Eureka has also added a music park recently. We stopped by and played some of the musical sculptures. The boys had a lot of fun here!

After we were done playing around, we headed back to the house. The boy ran into an old friend and played around for a while, jumped on the trampoline, and then watched a little bit of Netflix while I did some work.  While the boys and I were hanging around the house, Jeremy and a few friends went cave exploring! Here’s a picture he texted me while they were out and about.

Isn’t this awesome!? They had a lot of fun and came back with cool stories about their adventure. Maybe next time I’ll have to go!!

I’m sad to see our vacation coming to an end…We’re back on the road tomorrow.

Tomorrow night I will be blogging from my own comfy bed!!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Hey everyone!!

As I mentioned last night…we went to Frontier City today!

We had so much fun!

Frontier City was sold out today, so you can imagine how crowded it was. We didn’t get to ride as many rides as we’d hoped, but we still had a great time. Atticus isn’t much of a thrill seeker, so him and I sat and watched the others ride a few rides. As the boys were in the bath tonight I asked them what their favorite thing about today was. Bonus said “Water park!” Atticus said “Farris wheel!”

The water park is always a big hit with the kids. Today was a perfect day for it…It was so hot. Jeremy and I rode a few water slides, but there were so many kids running around that we decided it was best to hang out on the side lines today.

We spent a good 6 hours riding rides. Thank god it was not our running day! I seriously don’t know how I’m even awake right now. The heat is exhausting! I felt like no matter how much water I drank, it was never enough.

Looking forward to a good nights sleep, school with the boys, and running with Jeremy tomorrow.

Off to another great week! Enjoy your Monday everyone.

Hello all! Did everyone have a good day today? Mine was pretty good. Today was our running day…I always feel great afterwards. I had a chance to hang out with my granny this evening. She is such a hoot. I swear…I wish you could meet her. She’s loud, crazy, and knows how to play a good hand of Skipbo. She’s smart and smart mouthed. 😉 She’s not your average grandma. She’s 72 and gets around like a 50-year-old. When we go shopping, I swear she has more energy than me!

I stayed the night with her on a regular basis when I was younger. I remember sitting on the porch swing and she’d listen to me read. She came to every sporting event I had growing up. I could hear her screaming at me over hundreds of people. She was my biggest fan.

Now that we moved back to Oklahoma, she lives less than a mile away from us. The boys love her. Bonus is staying the night with her tonight and she spoils him rotten. He loves going to grannys house. He’d probably live over there if I let him. Not to mention, she lives across the street from the park!

I’m very thankful they get to spend time with her like I did growing up.

She makes me laugh on a daily basis and I feel grateful to have her around.

Here’s a picture of her and the boys from last December.

She doesn’t have internet and she will never see this post…but I want everyone to know how grateful I am to have such a great grandma. She may drive me nuts at times, but it doesn’t matter. She is still the best grandma I could ever ask for.

See you tomorrow.
