Don't forget to Live

I read this today and thought it was worth sharing. This can relate to most everyone. The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.

First I was dying to finish high school and start college.

And then I was dying to finish college and start working.

And then I was dying to marry and have children.

And then I was dying for my children to grown old enough for school so I could return to work.

And then I was dying to retire.

And now, I am dying... and suddenly I realize I forgot to live.

For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away- James 4:14

I am guilty of this myself. And having a senior in high school and seeing his life go by so fast, it is time to slow down and enjoy him. Like I have told Matthew, these are the best days of his life. I never thought life could pass by so quick.

Happy Birthday Cindy......

This week is one of My very best friends in the whole world Birthday.
Her name is Cindy. She and I did lots of stuff together, talked everyday(several times), shared a lot of the same interest, loved kids, and loved to SHOP! The unfortunate thing is that I can't talk to Cindy anymore, I can't call her, I can't shop with her and I can't put my arms around her sweet children. Why you ask? They are in Heaven. Yes Heaven. Her and her husband, her dear sweet son Ryan and my god daughter Megan, and Cindy's father.
They were all killed in a plane crash back in April of 2000. I will never ever forget it or them as long I as I live. My son Jaden is named after her son. I have done what I can to make them a part of my life as much as I can.
I just could not let this day go by without say "Happy Birthday Cindy". I miss you, I miss your kids, I miss the times we had, I miss all of you. I miss all your creative ways, and I miss being able to pick up the phone and call you and see what was going on for the day. I will see you again one day! Oh and you better believe me, if she were her she would be a BLOG gal. :) Cindy and her daughter Megan.
( I will post pictures of the rest of her family at a later time)

Rock Band 2

Matt getting ready to drum
Matt and his 2 BMF(best male friends) Barry and Stephen
Lets see how we did........hey we did good.
If you haven't ever played this game it is so FUN!

The little things that these kids are SPOILED with.

Today was the release of Rock Band 2. Matt went this week to preorder it.

He has drove me craZy the last 2 days about it.

Anyway to make a long story short, I went to get it and I called Matt and told him

I was on the way to get it. I decided to play a trick on him.

I called him after I got it and told him that they didn't get the shipment in because of the storms

in Texas. Needless to say I was kidding, and he was MAD! LOL

I got home and called him down stairs and pulled it out of my purse.....

I got him GOOD! I love it!! heeee heeeee

Remembering 9-11

Something I will never forget!

NO pain, NO gain...........

and this morning I have a lot of pain. I went yesterday and joined the local Gym here. Lauren invited me to start going with her a few nights a week and work off a few pounds.
I also invited another friend, so there was 3 of us. We had a great time. It was easier being with other GALZ. We worked out for about an hour or so.
My legs feel like noodles this morning.
On a funny note, I told Matthew (my son) that I was gonna start going to the gym and working out and I thought I was gonna have to pick him up off the floor from laughing(smart butt).
I'll show him,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,hmmmm. Ya know 17 yr olds don't think their parents can do anything.

Senior Melt Down Part II

Applications #1
Decisions, decisions
Lots of choices to look at and study
From a little bit of everywhere....
The stressed out Ole' Mom.....

Where O' Where will my first baby go? Go where you ask? COllEGE!!!! Yes, like as in maybe move out, or move away(tear , tear).

I am telling you, if any of you have been to college recently and or are in the process of elimination like we are then you know that the heck I am talking about.

This is CRaZY! We get stuff daily in the mail, and more and more and more confussion goes along with every packet that comes in.

Well, as we sit down last night and looked thru this massive pile of nice packets(confussion) we

had some more talking to do.

Questions from dear Ole' Mom started in. Oh by the way , I am dear ole' Mom(old is more like it). Ha.

Here we go "Matthew , where do you really want to go?" he says UT Knoxville. Ok, hmmm ($$)

We need to send off a few, so "where else?"... how about Tennessee Tech, MTSU, and a few others were mentioned. Ok...........

As we set there and fill out these small journals called applications and make out all the checks to send them off, Jaden starts paying more and more attention to the fact that this is getting to become real. He says "Matt, I think you should just go to MTSU". Matt said no, Jaden, I think I will go to a College in California. In other words, he is aggervating him.

To make a long story short, my sweet little baby boy does not , and I do mean NOT want his brother to move out or away.

We finished up 4 applications, and we will see what happens. He has to take the ACT again. Well, I guess he doesnt have too, but he is. He has only took it once and scored good but we want to see how he can do on the 2nd one.

Here are the ones that we sent so far

1. UT Knoxville


3. Tennessee Tech

4. GA Tech

He still thinks he is leaning towards Sports Medicine, Physical Therapy, or Pre-Dentist.

We will let you know! Stay tuned.

Tuesday Blues, NOT Orange

Well, let me just sum it up for you.
Tennessee VOLS OVERTIME at that (for all you who didn't stay up and watch).

I guess my neighbor was glad to take my flag down, and put his Gator flag (trash) back up.
Ha ha, they didn't see it for about 2 hours after they got home.

After the game was over I got 2 text messages from him. One said "how bout those Bruins", and then the other one was "good night LOOSER".
At that point I was too MAD to text him back and get in a text war at 11:45pm.
