Monday, April 29, 2013 -- Should NOT have looked at Saturday's weather in Louisville:( 55 degrees and raining. How is it possible to wear a cute sundress, fabulous shoes, and an awesome hat at a once-in-a-lifetime event (i.e. THE KENTUCKY DERBY) when it is cold and raining?! BOO. Rant is not done until Mother Nature and I are on the same page!!!

Saturday, May 4, 2013 -- Going to see a man about some horses!

More to come on the Derby...that is a post all by its lonesome self:)

One Sentence...April 21 - 27, 2013

Sunday, April 21, 2013 -- Long. Drive. Back. But first, a quick visit with sweet Emory Kate, and then a perfect breakfast with my sweet Momma. Thank goodness I have tomorrow off. Sanity!

Monday, April 22, 2013 -- There's only a few times in life that I do something was that day. I took the day off to rest and recover from the trip. A Bible devotion followed by a visit to the Dr. for Mr. Palmer -- poor thing is SUFFERING from all this pollen. Five meds. Bless. His. Heart.

Tuesday, April 23, 2013 -- TCAPS started today for Peyton. He's such a smart kid. So blessed. Then... Baseball. Baseball. Baseball. That is the world we're living in. Sonic. Sonic. Sonic. That is what I feed my kids. I've turned into "that" Mom. Ugh.

Wednesday, April 24, 2013 -- Rain. But not enough to cancel baseball. Darn. Brent's out of town, and the temperature dropped again. I hate. HATE. cold, wet baseball games. Mostly, I hate it because I have to miss choir practice -- this is ALWAYS my middle of the week rejuvenator! And for Palmer...5 different medicines are killing him. Oh, did I mention...we still have to study for TCAPS.

Friday, April 26, 2013 -- I'm not really sure if I've ever been so happy to see a Friday. Last day of TCAPS for Peyton...thank goodness! Sent in Krispy Kreme doughnuts and popsicles for a celebration. I'm sure the teacher LOVES me. Bring on the weekend!

Saturday, April 27, 2013 -- Rain. Rain. Please stay. I typically hate rain, as I love bright sunny mornings, but every now and then, I love it when it rains on a Saturday...I feel as though it gives me an excuse to be completely lazy. And that is is EXACTLY what we did. Lazy. All. Day. in preparation for the craziness of next week. Preview: Brent leaves to go out of town tomorrow through Friday. Palmer has week-long SAT 10 testing. Baseball Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Mom arrives on Friday and THEN...the Kentucky Derby on Saturday. Praying for the Lord to give me the energy I need. Otherwise, I will. not. make. it.
