Today marks the finale and big bang of this week. The drum roll has led up to this. The boys are in their green t-shirts (BAD MOM AND NO SCHOOL SPIRIT ALERT!!! No, the boys don’t have terrier shirts as of yet because every time they send an order form home, I set it down and find it after the deadline has passed and I’m too motivationally declined to go in a store and get them) and ready for a big day at school filled with all kinds of cheering at the pep assembly and parade. It really will be a lot of fun, I’ve always enjoyed these kinds of things. It’s just like when I was in school and we got out of class work for something fun, I get to skip washing dishes and matching socks for a few hours of excitement!
This week the boys have dressed up in jerseys, Duck Dynasty get-ups, superhero costumes (no they didn’t go as me, darn it!), and as Tacky Tourists. And I got to see what my 7 year old looks like with a beard…come on now, the kid has feet as big as mine already, I don’t need him growing up any faster!
****We interupt this program for a complete thought change without a good transition!***
Now, back to the whole superhero thing. Yeah, I caved yesterday and admitted that I don’t really fight crime, but how awesome would that be? I’d for sure be the coolest mom in at least a 5 mile radius, right? Yeah, maybe not :-p Well tomorrow I’m going to be wishing I had those superpowers, mainly a “defrost” setting (oh wait, that would be my supercar, not superpower) because some friends and I are running a mud run to benefit cancer. There is a local farm/corn maize (see what I did there? Yeah, corny…;-) ) that’s hosting it and I thought that September 28 would be a perfect date for gorgeous Fall weather. Well guess what, we haven’t had rain in a little while and it decided to grace us for the run. I know you’re thinking, “Uh didn’t she say this was a mud run? Wouldn’t that make it even better?” but no, it doesn’t. All mud is supposed to stay in specific mud-designated areas. At least I’m pretty sure that’s one of the rules… All kidding aside, it’s supposed to be pretty chilly but I can’t wait because we are going to have a blast! At least that’s what I keep telling myself. Our tshirts say “Mud Now, Wine Later” but I’m thinking my cousin’s take of “Mud Now, Whine Later” is going to be right. If it wasn’t for some wonderful girls I get to spend time with, I’m thinking I would be a little more intimidated! No worries, we’ll make it a helluva good time and it will definitely be one for the memory books. 🙂
So until next time, (hmm, I need a good sayonara…I’ll work on that one) try to keep from chewing your fingernails waiting for my subsequent posts. And I promise, one of these days, I’ll have more meat, more controversy, more opinions, more big kid stuff and less fluff…. Ha ha ha ha ha, just kidding, we’ll see. Only the Shadow knows!
