Scattered Saturday

June 13, 2009 weekend 9


Ok, remember that last post about summer and my lack of quiet blogging time……..full swing, heck I even missed my Friday Five…….eek!

So in it’s place I have a whole laundry list of things I’ve forgotten, things I’m thankful for, and just stuff!

First off……….I promised a friend I would assist her in getting her 12 year old son set up with a blog. Anyone know of any kids blogging networks like SITs for kids? I need to get hopping on that promise, only 8 more weeks of summer for him.

Where does Anita go all day………well hello I go to SOFTBALL! I go there 2 or 3 nights a week for practice and then I go there most weekends, and I was there all day yesterday, sadly Adrienne’s team had a rough day, 2 losses, so this morning was do or die(so to speak) and Kevin went to the game and they lost, a heartbreaker 5-4. Some good things did happen. Adrienne caught all 3 games, Adrienne got a hit in all 3 games, and today she hit a double and brought in the first run, their first run this weekend. The loss sent them home………but we play again in 2 weeks.

I’m an awful daughter, I have to call my parents, haven’t talked to them all week, they understand, but still………..shame shame. How often do you talk to your parents?, and Terra I know lucky you, you probably talk to or see your mom daily…….wish I weren’t so far away.

Today I get to drive Caitie 50 miles south(ugh) to a friends house from her HOBY conference, it’s still in our county and all the kids are getting together to plan a service project. The girls are also spending the night, so I’ll get to make the 100 mile round trip twice…….joy joy. Honestly I love that she is involved, but dang, with gas going up I hate it!

Ok, I did something this week I’ve been adamantly against, and no Pam I did not order a Kindle! I let Nick buy not one but two airsoft guns. The shoot little plastic like pellets, and it uses air, not like a hard BB gun action. I hate guns……..not a proud member of the NRA!! We’ve had nerf guns, but I wouldn’t even let him buy those fake guns at DW. His friend has some, and he loves playing with them. It was his money and I just gave in, folded like a little girl…….not sure how I feel about it. He’s been shooting things from our recycling bin……picture milk jugs, water bottles etc.

I’m thankful for dinner out. Last night we met Kevin at TGIFriday’s and had a nice dinner together, I even had a yummy mojito and let Caitie drive home, not that the one drink followed by dinner gave me a buzz, but I did set a good example!

Ok, dang it’s nearly 11:00, and I need to clean up the kitchen from the pancakes I made!
Enjoy the weekend, its’ hotter than blue blazes( that’s TX talk for ya) here in sunny FL……….ugh…….a bit too sunny!

    I don’t know why, but I have a hard time believing you are living anywhere but in Louisiana. I could have sworn when I first started visiting your blog, that I read somewhere that you were from La. Hmm. Weird. Summers are crazy, aren’t they. And my girls aren’t even into baseball. We’re anti gun here, too…that’s almost like an oxymoron: living in La. and being anti gun. Everyone here hunts. I can understand where you’re coming from on the air gun thing. It’s like, it’s only a toy/sport/thing and on the other hand, it is a gun. I’ll be facing the same thing in a few years with my boys, too, I imagine.

    Anita I’m so disappointed. I’m sitting here just waiting for someone else to buy a Kindle so I won’t be the ONLY one who caved. Please?

    Hi Nita, Your blog post read like a real slice of life. We can all identify – either current day or from days past. Have a great Sunday…you know, the DAY OF REST??!!

    I disappear for a bit, then I come back…so here I am again!

    You are busy busy!

    I talk to my mom almost everyday and see her (she just lives 2 blocks away from me) a couple times a week.

    Too bad Adrienne’s team lost, but hey, she did good!

    I, too, am NOT a fan of guns. I won’t allow one in my house, and I cringe when I hear how proud people are to carry. My feelings – unless you are a police officer, you don’t need a gun.

    Oh it sounds like you have been so busy Anita! Kyle would love to have an air soft gun…where do you buy them at? Do you need two so you can do it with friends? Fill me in when time allows! So sorry about Andrienne’s team…hopefully things will turn around soon…how did your drive go with Caitie?! Thinking about you!!!

    P.S. You are not an awful daughter…it takes time to sit down and have a nice long chat, and you have been SO busy…this is where a headset is handy to visit with your parents on long drives like the 50 mile one you’re on! Driving is the perfect time to catch up with phone calls…I just pull over to dial, put the headset on, and use the long hours in the car to catch up with loved ones! 🙂
