Shreveport was good! Wish I could have stayed longer and done more! Going with Patty was a hoot! We got along wonderfully! She is Uncle Timmy's girlfriend ( as Mr. C. calls his BIL. Of course since Mr. C's sister died we still call him Uncle Timmy.

I love the Shreveport La area. Mr. C. doesn't seem to like it as much as I do. The shopping around there is way better than around my small town area!

We got home last night at 2:30 am and I slept till 8:30 am. I got up and started working on my Song Lyric journal. The due date is Sept 30. I think I about got it finished. I am not adding why like each song I choose for it. Which doesn't take tooo long. That doesn't have to be in the journal but I think it makes it more interesting to the partner. I need to get it done here in the next hour so I can go to the post office and get it sent off!

Tonight Trevor has another school football game. I have no ideal where we will be going tonight. I just know that since mom passed away I need to attend more of his games. He said not to bother about tonight they will just lose anyway. The school program is fresh and only 2 players also play on the little might league. Which gives them more experience!

A song that keeps running in my head is by Katy Perry California Girls. I can't shake it and haven't heard it in 3 days or so. Guess I need to go for a drive and listen to it since it's in my cd player in the car.

Working on swaps for swap bot!

This morning I get up about 7am. Today is the day I am going to work on some swaps. I am currently doing a song lyric journal and need 30 songs and I still need 10 to get it finished. I don't have to send it out till Sept 30th. So am going to try to finish it this week! Am angeling a cute and fun journal for the partner that sent to me. The host/her partner flaked on her. Then the girl I sent to won't rate me...uugh. I had a journal with some pages already done and am going to use it instead of wasting the book.

Have been Brody's taxi service today. (Bonus child) Sure will be nice when he gets his license. Then we can worry about him but not have to drive him!

I had a ole friend look me up on facebook today. We use to work at America On Line in Oklahoma City. I hadn't talked to him in like 9 years or so. He was always a nice guy towards me.

Need to make list for my trip to Shreveport La for tomorrow. Am so ready for a road trip. Patty and I are going to have a blast on the trip! Then I get to see Mr Wonderful!! That really excites me greatly!! I need to buy alot of Shreveport postcards on this trip. I have used alot of them in my swaps and am about out.

Have a great evening...

The day with my BFF Cherrie

Spent the day with my BFF Cherrie. I think we had fun. We ran to Chickasha then we back tracked to Duncan. I got a manicure and pedicure while she took Brody to Rush Springs for me. We then went and ate at The China Buffet there in Duncan. The food is always good there. I ran into a ex brother in law Wayne haven't seen him in years. He seems happy and that is good to know. Then Cherrie and I went to Fashion Bug. I bought 2 shirts for fall, 1 summer shirt, a pair of jean capri's and a pair of white capri's also a cute purple purse that goes with the fall shirts! All for a grand total of $62.00. If I had paid full price it would have been around $150.00. I am feeling good about my bargin shopping.
Tonight Luther comes home and I am trying to get supper cooked and house cleaned. We are having Mexican Casserole. Yummy

Football game..

Trevor had a football game this evening. It was Bray~Doyle against Minco. I hate to say it but they won 54 to 0. They beat us down big time! He was mad ALL over. He kept telling me that he had no blocker ...looked like to me he had no help on the field at all. That boy plays his heart out on that field. The high school coach is already got his eye on him. Do I want him to be a all star football player? I am not sure, although Blake was picked as all star player his senior year. But this is my baby we are talking about!
Hey I actually added a photo to the blog! Yea for me!! I can do it but was a chicken to even try!! So hopefully my blogs will be more interesting with some photos with them!! Yes I am very proud of myself!!
Today I got a pen~pal letter from Ca !! I love getting her letters, I feel like we are truly friends. She writes as if I know her family and in a way I feel as if I do! I even started a letter back to her today. Our letters are always long and chatty.
I spent time with Coby and Kaylee today. Picked them up so they could go watch Trevor play football. Aaron and Coby was to busy visiting with girls..Kaylee running and trying to keep up with the boys. I supose it is like a social gathering for the teens...

Friday Night Football

Tonight Aaron and Trevor are at the Rush Springs football game. I hope they are having a good time. I don't usually let them stay at the game by themselves. I believe that at 15 years old and 12 years old they can handle it. I am home relaxing and working on the computer, playing frontierville, doing swap~bot, and now doing my blog.

Today was a good mail day. I received a pen pal letter and a package from swap~bot. Was surprised to get fun mail. In my package I got some cute blank recipe cards. Just in time for a swap that I am doing for crock pot recipes.

Have had some good phone calls today. I have talked to my sweetie Mr. C., and my brother Stacy and my BFF Cherrie. This has been since 7:30 pm. I love these people very much. They complete my life.

It's now 9pm and I need to go get the boys from the game. Am keeping my fingers crossed that Aaron will spend the night with Coby (my nephew). It depends on if Laura will let him, he has been staying almost every weekend with them.

One of my goals this weekend is to make up some envelopes. I have used up all that I had on hand. It doesn't take long and they look so good when mailing.

Being a mom means being on the road.

I have learned today that being a mom means being in the car for hours. I went to pick up the boys from school (left my house at 2pm). It is a 25 minute drive out to their school. Then we drove to town and picked up Blake. Drove to Chickasha OK about a hour drive to get Trevor's new ATT phone fixed. He has only had it 9 days.....Then drove up to EL Reno to Phil's Cycle & ATV. Blake swears that this is the place to buy all the parts he needs. Never mind that Duncan OK which is like right down the road ( 20 minutes or so from my house) but never keeps enough parts on hand. Although they are always willing to order them in, not fast enough for my oldest son. Then we left El Reno and headed back out to Bray~Doyle where Trevor could do the last 30 minutes of football practice. He got done at 8:30 pm and I was glad:) Home sweet home here I come. So from 2:00pm till 9:2o I was in my car so to speak.

Got Mr. C off to work. I know he dreads the 7 hour drive down to Mansfield La. I can tell the last day before he leaves how much he dreads going. I hate to see him leave on Thursday's

I am going to go lay down I am tired and need some beauty sleep! Sweet dreams are sure to find me!!

Swap bot mail day!!

As you may know I am really into swap~bot. I spend a lot of time looking at swaps to enter and also looking at profiles with blogs. It keeps me entertained:)

Today I received 2 swaps. One was for a book swap. The book I ended up with is Club Dead by Charlaine Harris. She is a favorite author of mine. I can't wait to start reading it, which will be tonight while Mr. C is watching his daughter cheer at a football game. I am going to grab a glass of wine and settle in on the love seat and read for a couple of hours.

The other swap I received was a private swap I did with PATUMMA. Wow I was blew away with all the goodies she sent me. The cute pink princess box with a rubber stamp set, with blank cards to use, also there was princess items in there as well. The box was completely full of goodness. I could tell she really read my profile and wanted to put a smile on my face. She hit my likes completely on the head. Thanks to both ladies very much!

Have been reading several new blogs today. I am amazed at how creative they are. I hope as time goes by my blog will grew as I learn to be more interesting.

I recieved this recipe with my book swap and wanted to share it with you ladies. It sounds wonderful for a cool fall evening. I am all about easy receipes.

County Chicken Chowder

2 TBS butter
1 1/2 lbs chicken tenders, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 cans (10 3/ oz each) crean if potato soup, undiluted
2 small onions, chopped
2 ribs celery, sliced
2 small carrots, sliced
2 cups frozen corn
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 tsp dried dill weed
1/2 cup half and half


Melt butter in a large skillet. Add chicken; cook until browned. Add cooked chicken, onions, celery, carrots, corn, soup, chicken broth and dill to slow cooker.

Cover and cook on LOW 3~4 hours or until chicken is no longer pink and vegetables are tender.

Turn off heat; stir in half and half. Cover and let stand 5 to 10 minutes or just until heated through.

Doesn't that sound so very yummy? I am thinking I may go get the items tonight and put it on so it will be ready after the games tonight.

Mr. C bought us a new 42" flat screen TV and entertainment center this past Friday. We are loving it very much. We are down to buying a new bedroom suite and we should be done with furniture. We furnished one room at a time, which worked for our budget. I may end up having to buy Trevor a new bedroom suite but that will be in future.

Weekend again!

Mr. C and I went to Gainsville Texas for the weekend and had a great time! I think we confused our kids by not taking them with us. We really needed the time away from the daily routine. I was very surprised that he had planned this for us.

Tonight we are back home and I need to work on a few swaps for Swap~Bot. I am currently in three journal swaps. One is song lyric journal, one is a 30 day journal and the other is a long term journal.

I bought a Memory Makers book today and it is called Budget Scrapbooking, great ideas for scrapbooking on a shoestring. Just looking thru it I have found several ideals I can use in my journals to spice them up a bit. I am always looking for new inspirations.

We ate at a great BBQ place in Ardmore Oklahoma today called Budro's Rib Joint. It was great bbq!
