Today I reach all the way across this great country of ours and wrap my arms around you. Today I am a shoulder for you to cry on. Today I strive to make you laugh at least once. (I may even aggravate you on purpose just to divert your mind!) Most importantly, today Little Sister, I say a prayer for you and your family that Sweet P's absence goes by quickly, that he comes back home to you safely and that each day you view a piece of him while watching little Sweet P.
I love you,
Your Big Sister

Every time I look at this I can not help but laugh! I visualize what it'd be like to be at/host a party and this be the cake served. Think about your friends...and THE cake. Me's thinking Olivia's "friends" don't likey Olivia after all.

And before I forget: Penny where are you?! I went to your blog the other day and you had vanished! What's going on? Please come back soon. I miss reading about the new life you are etching out for yourself in the new home.

On another note, how excited are you about Mr CJ Spiller deciding to forgo the big pay out of pro football and sticking it out one more year at Clemson. I am beyond words excited about this! And poor guy, he has undoubtedly taken a stance against his mother with his decision. We listened to the press conference in the car today and when asked about the stress it's caused you could hear him choke up. I just wanted to stalk, I mean, hug him and tell him in the end it will all work out. Here's to not selling out, for following your heart (even though it was obviously very difficult) and to getting this gentleman in the running for the Heisman next year!!

I also re-read Where the Red Fern grows after Lovebug finished it. I cried more than she did!! Actually reading it for her wasn't as heart breaking as I thought it would be. However, when she would try to retell it she would get all choked up. I, on the other hand, went to bed two nights ago with an awful headache due to all the tears!! Go figure!
And in keeping with my downright hatred at the time for Best Buy: I STILL HATE BEST BUY! QUIT HOLDING MY COMPUTER HOSTAGE! IT IS TIME FOR IT TO COME HOME!!
and P., it is an Acer--sorry! I haven't had any real problems with it though until I sent it in to get the whole charging thing taken care of. Hope that makes you feel better!!

Hubby leaves tonight to start back with the business of traveling. He won't be home until Friday. Lovebug started back to school today. I think I'm going to take back the statement where I was ready to get back to a routine. I think I may go into routine overload.
Sidenote: We bought Lovebug Where the Red Fern Grows for Christmas and I am anxiously waiting for her to get to the end of it so we can discuss it. She is now on page 190. Some folks were shocked that I bought her this book, but who doesn't remember the first time they read it? It is still, to this day, one of my most favorite books and I was just excited that she was finally able to read it. Bless her heart though, she is going to cry like a crazy person during the whole last chapter!!

Ok, got the one sentence out of the way. Tomorrow it's back to the daily grind of school activities. Alarm clock is set--ugghh! It'll be nice though to get back into a routine. I think we all need it.
Got a new bride and guess what? She's one of Dabo's neighbors!! I had to tell her my stalker stories, which thankfully she got a huge kick out of. She and her mother invited me to come by their house...I really don't think they know what they've gotten themselves into!! What if he's a guest at the wedding?! I will have a professional photographer there to document my stalky ways!! Could be interesting.

I realized after my rant I never posted about NYE or any post Christmas festivities. Whooh did we have fun for NYE. Went to a friends house to enjoy some margaritas and play the Wii. I cannot tell you (how many margaritas I had) how sore I was the next day after boxing!! What a workout! I keep telling Hubby we need to get a Wii, but I think we would become two worthless human beings---with great bodies.:) We spent the night with our friends as to not drink and drive and not be on the road with other idiots that decide to drink and drive.
The next morning we got up and headed home to start our beans for the traditional New Year's meal. You know the one. Black eyed peas, collard greens, some pork, and cornbread. It's supposed to bring money to you in the new year. While we aren't rolling around in beds stuffed with money every night we are definitely blessed. We also had to get ready to watch our Tigers play. That didn't quite go as planned. Still love them though and am looking forward to see what next season brings.
On the 2nd we were invited to an Oyster Roast, which is one of my favorite things in the world! Left Baby Girl at home with a sitter while we took Lovebug with us. We had the best time and the caterers that did the food really knew what they were doing! Yummy!! Yesterday both lovely ladies went with us to the Clemson basketball game. Lovebug gets to go with Hubby every year for one as a "date". Baby Girl and I decided to tag along for this one. It was the first time taking her and she kept talking about how "awesome" it was! I loved it! On our way out we saw the Tiger Cub and had the opportunity to pose for a quick picture--not that I can show you now, but I will soon, promise!. Baby Girl was a little scared of him, but of course, Love Bug was all about it!!
I feel like we were at full speed this entire break. I'm almost looking forward to setting the alarm clock and getting back into my regularly scheduled life. almost.
Rant over...until next time!
