My work sabbatical ends today. I've taken off the last two weeks. I should say, I've taken off actually going to depositions. I had gotten wayyyyy far behind with work. Several attorneys called looking for transcripts. B-A-D. So I've been trying to get caught up. Today I have to work at 2:00 downtown. Yuck. I've enjoyed staying home. Now, y'all know Kelly and I are both court reporters -- BUT -- I actually do most all of my own typing. Double yuck.
Anywho, Reid decided he wanted a mohawk for summer. He had one last year, and it sorta suits him, so I said go for it. Here he is at his baseball game last night. Handsome, I think.
How was our first day of summer vacation, you're dying to know?? Well, I give it a C minus. By 10:30 a.m., Eli had been sent to his room twice, stood in the corner, while Reid had been spanked once and sent to his room. Alayna was whiny and starving, and I needed to get groceries. So I whipped 'em up some pancakes, made them clean up, and off to the store I went. I drug Reid along with me for some company and help loading and unloading. But fear not, our day got better and I think we'll get our groove back lickety split.
As I was looking through some old pictures from around today's date to post, I came upon one of my most favorite pictures ever:
This is my dad Marshall and my baby, Eli Marshall, on May 22nd, 2006 at Ross's high-school graduation party. I hardly can believe that was three years ago!! For anyone reading who may not know, my little Eli was named after my dad, because I found out I was expecting him right after my Dad nearly died from pancreatitis and liver failure. My baby was a miracle and a blessing as was my Dad living to see him.
It's been so good to talk to y'all again, and keep those comments coming! They pump me up!
P.S. A Girl Named Kelly Kelly made it to the beach, and the rain had stopped for the time being. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for her. Rain at the beach makes her frown :0(
Hope the Lord smiles upon each of you this Friday. Until next time...
