this morning i was going on about something to my husband. something important and lifechanging like how i wanna make a cute homemade lunchsack for daniel to take lunches in like that one blogger did or how i want to sew or something.

keith just shook his head and walked off muttering "i love you."

"what was that?" i asked.

"i just love you," he said.

"why?" i asked.

"because you're you."

now that was kinda sweet.

i think?

Momma's Words Ringing in My Ears

My Mom would have a field day with my life right now. She was always looking for a cause...something to champion or dig into. She would roll up her sleeves and give me a good talkin to right now for sure.

You see, she used to tell me all the time "you need to slow down." Boy, would she be chomping at the bit to preach to me right now. It feels like I have been going non-stop for as long as I can remember and I'm actually tired folks. T-I-R-E-D.

Since Tuesday I have flown to Austin, Texas, toured hotels non-stop, flew from there to Jackson, Mississippi and did the Mississippi Toys for Tots drive at Toys 'R Us then rented a car and drove to Tuscaloosa arriving 2 minutes after kickoff for the LSU game. Was too tired to drive back to Nashville afterwards so D and I got a room and made it home today.

I will be in town all this week and will try to resume a normal work and home routine. I will buy groceries and cook meals and play with my kids and my hubby and my pets and....and....soak it all in.

That is, until Tuesday morning when I itch to put a stop to the monotony. :)

Yes Mom...I hear you. I'll try to slow down. Sigh......
