winter weather

Snow day! Tomorrow and Wednesday we're out of school because of the winter storm that's heading our way :)

Janie had a skating party for her birthday this past Saturday and she had a blast! Jami, Daniel and Emmie even got to come :) 

Maybe I'll get some pictures of the snow tomorrow :)

Si and I have been up for over an hour... I've tried to lay him back down once and he was back wide awake within minutes of me walking out of his room.

I miss sleep...

Growing up

my baby girl is going to be 10 years old on sunday...

sometimes it feels like it was only a few months ago that i held her like a little baby...

and other times it feels like a lifetime since i have held her like that...

i am so very proud of my daughter. she is growing up to be someone i am proud to say that i know and had a hand in raising.

people tell her all the time how pretty she is. and i am glad that she is pretty. but i asked her, what's more important than being pretty, janie?

her answer?

"being a good person, momma. and being nice. and being smart."

that's my girl... :)

roll tide rant

i am sick of Alabama fans. 

their smug attitude.

their elitist arrogance.

and for what reason??

most of the ones that i know didn't even attend (much less graduate from) the university of Alabama.
here is a quote from an Alabama fan (speaking about Auburn fans) that I know barely graduated from high school:

"they're the white trash next door neighbors who think they're as good as you & well they're just not."

this is what i think of the whole situation... they are acting like spoiled children. the kind who have never been told no and have never been disciplined before. the kind that throw tantrums in the middle of the floor in crowded stores and no one ever does anything to correct their behavior.

now that they have been knocked from their pedestal (and they may very well be placed back up on top of it and that is fine) they don't know how to react and are lashing out at people who don't deserve it.

white trash... if she wants to see white trash, i can SHOW her white trash... all i'd need to do is place her in front of a mirror.
