What a WEEK!!!

Dude...I don't even know where to begin!

Good gracious...it has been KA-razy lately. And oddly enough, in a good way. I mean, I've been CRAZY busy just doing...STUFF. But I'll take this over being bored to tears.

But don't ya'll worry...I'm not gonna do a day-by-day breakdown of what I've been doing since my last post. I'll just say that I have spent an AMAZING amount of time volunteering at Jayla's school, running errands for the household, taking my MIL where ever she needs/wants to go, etc. I've also been doing my share of shopping on-line too. But I'll share more about that at another time. And what's been so interesting about that is, I found that it's just as difficult to shop on-line as it is in a store when you don't have any money! lol

Let me just go on record and say that, having a husband that coaches THREE soccer teams, is quite...um, interesting! I mean, don't get me wrong, I LOVE youth soccer and love watching the games. As well as being involved with the teams. But it makes for an exhausting weekend! A couple Fridays ago, one of our teams had a 6pm game. No problem, right? Well, do you know how hard it is to play/watch soccer in the dark? LOL The county was a little lax in getting the park lights turned on that evening. So we had to call the game at 1/2 time because the boys couldn't even see their own hands in front of their faces. It was fun though :-).

Speaking of soccer, Jayla and the Lil' Stingrays are doing great! One of Coach M's classmates from high school came to watch Jayla play. Her daughter is in high school and also plays soccer. They were very impressed with how well the girls play; and at such a young age. Wonder if high school soccer is in Jayla's future? :-)

Take a look at Jayla's most recent soccer pictures:


Our U14 Stingrays are currently undefeated! Those boys ROCK!!! Not much else to say about them. They are just really good. And Barcelona, our U16 team has only lost 1 game, I think. So basically, they ROCK too! :-)

Alrighty, I'm sure there's a ton more I want to share with you guys. But I'm kinda at a loss right now. Like I said, this week has been very busy. But I was able to squeeze in some time to get my hair done...YAY!!! We're meeting up with some of Mister M's high school classmates for dinner tomorrow night. And if the weather isn't terrible, we'll spend the day on the soccer fields. My back up plan (if it does rain), is to sit and finish catching up on everyones blogs...I'm such a slacker :-). But I love ya'll!

So, what do you guys have planned for the weekend?

Well, before I sign off, how bout I leave you with a few flower fixes (I'm trying to redeem myself). lol
Ya'll have a great weekend!!!

Bayoootiful flower fix, Dawn.

I think my hubs is gonna try to play a round of golf; he hasn't been out very much at all this summer, and the rains are a-comin', so he's going to try tomorrow p.m.

Other than that...I'm singing in choir and with the worship team on Sunday. DS and DD both have a party, so I think tonight it's flopping in front of the TV with pizza since the rest of the weekend will be a bit busy.

I am glad she is enjoying soccer. Coaching 3 teams has to be crazy...I don't know how he does it.
