Where did the week go?

I know, I my last post, I stated that I was gonna try and do better with this whole posting thing. Well doggonnit...I just can't keep up. Not to mention, strangely enough, I just don't have a whole lot to write about these days.

I mean, it IS soccer season. But I know ya'll get tired of hearing about my families adventures on the fields :-). However, I will throw in a little soccer update...our 3 teams are doing AWESOME!!! But as I've mentioned before, the Spring season is a difficult one to play due to all the rain. And speaking of which, it's raining today and will, more than likely, rain tomorrow too. So that means there will be no games this weekend :-(.

But yeah, the teams are doing great. So if there's any REAL exciting news on that front...ya'll will be the first ones I tell.

In other news...some of you may remember this kid...

Remember him? No! What about this one?....

OHHH, yeah, that's my nephew Markell! :-) Considering I haven't been real good at updating my blog lately, I can't promise that I'll do this post on Sunday. So how bout we all go ahead and wish this good looking young man a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! On Sunday, the 29th, he'll be 14 years old.

Here is his most recent school photo. He's such a handsome guy, isn't he?

And while we're on the subject of Markell, can I ask you guys a favor? PLEASE take a minute to pray for him and my sister. I think I've made this request of you before. But things have not really improved. In fact, they've gotten much worse. So please remember him in your thoughts and prayers. He is in DIRE need of a good ole fashioned BUTT KICKIN! And to put it mildly, he's making his life VERY difficult. As well as the lives of those of us who love him. I won't go into detail here, as it's just too much to write. Not to mention, I don't wanna put the boys business out there like that.

Please, my friends, just know that some changes need to be made...with the quickness!

But again, I do wish him a happy birthday and I hope you'll join me.

ANYWAY...on to another subject. Some of my readers have been inquiring about the surprise that I've been wanting to share with you. Well, let me just tell you, by the time I do tell you, you're all gonna say, "THAT'S IT!!! THIS is what she was keeping from us? BIG DEAL!!" Ok, I hope none of you say that. Well, not so I can hear it, lol. Just let it be known that the surprise is a big deal to me and I can't wait to share it with you. The "event" will take place on Easter Sunday. So I'll be sharing it with you shortly after that. Not too much longer.

Alrighty, that's a wrap for me tonight. Ya'll have a great weekend and I'll holla atcha later. Toodles!!

Well, Happy Birthday, Little Mr. M!

14? Wow. Have we known each other that long? I guess so! I'm sorry to hear that he is showing himself, and I will certainly keep everyone in my prayers.

But waiting till Easter? That's still over 2 weeks away!!!

I wish him a very happy birthday and that things get straightened out also.
I know it's not my business and certainly don't know much (if any) details but I wish he would have been able to stay with your family. I think that would have been best for him to have that family structure and Mister M's influence. That's all i'm saying about THAT!

Happy Birthday Markell. He kinda reminds me of The Other Boy but he's the same age as The Boy. I'll remember to pray for him.

I haven't checked blogs in sooo long and as always you are the first one I ALWAYS check when I finally get back in the swing of things.

I've never seen pics of him as a baby....he was soooo darn cute. Is that the age you first got him?

You know men aren't as mature as women so as long as you're patient and have faith you know in time he'll do fine!!!

God do I miss talking to you....I've been sooooo busy at work it's killing me!! LOL

I'm so sorry to hear that things are still a struggle with Markell. My heart goes out to Kim and your whole family. I truly hope everything comes full circle and he becomes a wonderful man like when he was a wonderful boy.
