Update 7:40 PM: I just noticed on the picture that there is a lizard that has camouflaged itself to match the door. Pretty sure there is a lizard somewhere in my house. Pretty sure I’m going to have to be sedated if I see it. -_________-

This house has been operating on a wing and a prayer for the last two weeks. I’ve been spending a lot of time laying in bed on a heating pad and sitting upright in my home office doing work. My pinched nerves are really preventing me from doing all that I want and need to do. It’s been a struggle trying to find some relief for my body.


Between settling after a weekend in Dallas, school, work, my physical therapy sessions and after school activities for the children, I am beyond exhausted and haven’t had time to schedule a massage. But since it’s homecoming week and my daughter won’t stop talking about the parade she’s in this Saturday for my university, I’m trying to muster the strength to push through the pain and enjoy the festivities.


I swapped out my Fall wreath for my Homecoming wreath to get in the spirit. Maybe that’ll help me stop pouting and complaining about the fact that my daughter has to be at the studio for 4:00 am Saturday morning.

Or how they’ve switched up the hairstyles.

Or how I’ve noticed just how unorganized this organization is. And surprisingly, I’m not the only parent that thinks so.

Because besides the fact that I am beyond pissed that I signed my daughter up for ballet and they collectively decided to focus more on majorette style dancing to become the next Bring It substitutes, it’s homecoming week. And to me, this week symbolizes the light at the end of the tunnel.

The good news is that work has slowed down a bit, today is payday, and I’m off Friday. Find the good and gratitude in everything right? (:

    I love the color of your door!

    I hope you feel better soon and get some relief. These kids will run is tagged if we let them. I am counting down until the end of October when Fall sports end so I can take a breather.

      I was telling my boyfriend how it’s beginning to grow on me but not enough to stay. I still want to strip the paint and have a stained door tho. LOL! But for now, I’m fine with it and I’m not in a hurry to change it just yet.

      I wish Fall sports were over for me but ummm.. Football is just getting started. I received the email today. :cries:

    Giiiirl I love your wreath! I need one. I hope you start feeling better! I usually am too tired to ever see the parade Saturday morning, but I did say I would try to get up to campus early to see some action or at least tailgate before the game
