Boring? Not us.

Kevin and I got married really young. We were babies, really. The one thing I always told him was I didn't want to be one of those boring, old-people. You know, those people who never do anything. They never go anywhere. They never have anything exciting going on. . .

Seriously, who are those people? My life is far from boring. Take this morning for example. We jumped out of bed running way late. I told Kyler to get dressed, and I started getting ready. I came through the living room. . .and Kyler was watching the Dukes of Hazzard. NO TV IN THE MORNING. You may NOT wear those pants--they have holes all over them! Kady, come back here! Kady, DON'T MAKE ME CHASE YOU! I finish getting ready, get Kady ready, and finally get Kyler out the door. Wait! No breakfast! Mom-of-the-year gets a breakfast bar (out of PopTarts) and gives to Kyler. Kady gets an all-natural, organic fruit roll-up. (She eats breakfast with the babysitter, the woman who most likely keeps DHS out of our house. . .) Guess what?! I have 7 miles until I am out of gas. . .and it's 28 to town. . .We detour to the gas station, where Kyler goes in and pays for the gas. He also gets himself a sausage biscuit for breakfast, so he's well fed this morning. . .

We finally get to town, and of course, Kyler is late to class. I had to go in and sign him in. Kady has this odd smell coming from her wet backside as we do this. When I return to the car, I notice the smell permeates my car. Slowly, the wheels start to turn. . .we had sonic last night for supper. . .she had milk to drink. . .which she drank all of. . .or maybe not. . .OH, Lord, let it not be true! That child spilled milk in her car seat! Last. night. GAG! So, I'm at work trying to figure out how to get the seat cleaned and the car cleaned out before I pick her up this afternoon. The babysitter asked to wash the seat cover, but I couldn't do that to her. She already had to change Kady, and I'm sure she'll wash Kady's dirty clothes.

Boring?! Who are those people? How do I become one of them!?! Please, let me come over to your side!!! I need some boring for awhile!

hahahahaha... let me know if you truly figure out a way to have a boring life!!

Pop-Tarts and fruit roll-ups aren't a good breakfast??? I think someone's been lying to you... lol.Fruit is good for you, right? There is grain in that Pop-Tart. Sugar is a normal part of life. ;0)

What a "fun" day you had!

I'm so jealous. (Not.) ;)

But we all have days like that, don't we? I hope everything turned out okay in the end.

Boring for me was after my brain attacks and all I did was sleep and vomit. Couldn't read, walk, eat, stay awake, drive, do dishes, do laundry, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! I'm sure you don't want that kind of boring. It will be three years next Monday that I had my first stroke, and boy have I come a long way baby. You will find what you are looking for in ONLY one place, right inside your HEART.
Fondly, Lori
