Thanksgiving and Family

I am posting late because by the time we got back to the hotel room I was extremly tired. Barely keep my eyes open.

However, it was a good day. House filled with everyone laughing and enjoying themselves. The food was great too. There was roast, ham, turkey, black eyed peas, stuffing, macaroni & cheese, greens, sweet potato, potato salad, and cakes. Oh yeah. Can't forget ma dea's gumbo.

I spent some time calling friends, and family. I wished in a way that my family was as still as close. Miss them and my mom at times like these. But I am thankful and blessed to be apart of all this. It's what the holiday's are all about.

With all that was going on and my cell needing to be charged I didn't get the chance to take picture. Hopefully I will get some today.

We have made it to ATL

Well, we finally made it to ATL around 12:37am. The ride wasn't as long as it seemed last time. Then again that was 4 years ago. 

Anyhow, I must say that even tho our room isn't huge it is very nice. From the lobby to our room I can't complain. We got a separate sitting area with a sink and mini-frig. Coffee cup are real too. The 42" flat screen TV is HD and the picture is clear. Not fancy, but I have no problem pay the price we have paid.

Well, it's now 225am. Way past bd time. I thought I would show off our hotel photos. These sre just a few. Will add the rest in the morning.

ATL BOUND!!!

We have officially been on the road to Atlanta, GA. After a busy and complicated day of work, running around, and waiting for my niece we are finally on our way. To be honest I never thought this moment would come.

The boys are doing well I might say, but then again they are use to road trips. Robert was at awe about the signs and stars he saw, then he's knocked out. Ernest is sleepy, but he's too hyped up about the rock music in the car. He was singing the theme song to the first Transformers movie when we first got on the road. Then he started dancing to Queen. You know the one from "Wayne's World". Well he get's it honestly.

Still got another 4 (or 5) hours to go. Don't know how some do all this driving in one night just to hit clubs and back. Too much!

Tomorrow We Are ATL Bound!

It's 10:30 at night and just finished washing cloths, packing, get outfits out for tomorrow, and getting the boys in bed. I still haven't eaten yet. I am so sleepy and tired I could fall out now.
However, there is a bright side to this. After all the planning, rushing around, and finalizing things we will be headed to ATL for Thanksgiving. Go food, laughing with family we haven't since for sometime, and most of all FOOTBALL!!!!!

I can't wait! I wish my sister, nieces, and my oldest son could join us. Makes me sad about that, but Christmas will be here before we know it so they can be with us for that. In the meantime, we I will be thankful for my family no matter where they may be. I love everyone of them and blessed to have them in my life.

We my Thanksgiving has begun. Stay tuned for more...and pics.

Our Great Dinner at Arby’s

For those who don't know, my hubby works as the General Manager for Arby's. Well, one of the things he loves to do for his crew is to have holiday dinners. A time for everyone to relax and have a good time during the holidays. Yesterday was the Thanksgiving day dinner and everyone had a great time. The children way more than the adults, but it was nice. Great food and lots of laughs. It was the first time I met his new crew so that was an added bonus to things. Everything was absolutely delicious and homemade. This crew really took this dinner seriously and it was very special.

The best entertainment of the dinner was watching the children run around the store in circles. They had no toys and no other activities, but this seemed to them to be the best thing ever. I am excited to see if he will plan one again for Christmas. If so, I am posting that one too.

A Proud 49ers Fan!


Today was our quarterly meeting, which we call T-Town, at work. Every T-Town is a particular theme. We had to wear either a company t-shirt or our favorite team shirt. Well, being the big 49ers fan that I am had someone take a picture of me in my glorious #21 Frank Gore jersey. By the way...I wasn't the only one at work with the exact same jersey. Now off to finish watching my boys play against the Chicago Bears. GO NINERS!!

Next Day of Tropical Storm Ida


Well, as I thought it really was nothing. Tropical Storm Ida lost it's power the closer it got to land. The eye is in Mobile Bay right now. Nothing a little rain and wind. Some areas are flooded but not where we live, so it's good. Time to finish getting dressed and off to work as usual.

Tropical Storm Ida...

Until now the hurricane season has been pretty quiet. Normally we have to keep an eye on the news and if even mentions something in in the Gulf everyone is in panic. Well, that hasn't been the case all season. At least until now.
To be honest I wasn't thinking that things would be like this, but the winds are blowing very hard and raining this bad. It's tolerable, but not what I expected. They had schools close early today and they will be closed until Thursday since Wednesday is Veteran's Day.


For most tomorrow is business as usual unless it's end up being worse or you live near a flooded area. We are good, so family you don't need to worry at all. We got food and huge generator if necessary. Later, I might take a video for you to see what our tropical storms are like. At least this isn't like Katrina. We are blessed for that.

An evening with my boys...

This evening I was blessed with having all three of boys at home for a moment. If your a friend or casual visitor to my family blog, you might not know that I have three children - Cordell (21 years old), Ernest (4 years old), and Robert (2 years old). With that in mind you see there is a huge gap been my youngest two and my oldest. Cordell doesn't live at home, so I don't see him that often. Tonight meant a lot because I haven't heard from in awhile and he doesn't get the chance to spend a lot of time with his brothers.

Anyhow, he came over and spent most of his time teasing and playing with his brothers. Ernest was excited to see him and really upset when he had to go. Robert is really not one to care either way right now, but he did enjoy climbing all over him. It was really nice to have them together for a little while and see that he doing ok. I took a few pictures for the occasion.

Trials of Being a Mother

I love being a mom. The anticipation you feel when your awaiting their arrival. The joy you feel once they are finally here. Seeing that first real smile, their first tooth, thier first crawl, first step. Everyday they say or do something new that makes you proud to be blessed in having them. You cannot imagine your life without them.

Then there are those days and times when you just want to scream and runaway They drive you nuts and make you want to pull your hair out. Somedays you envy those without kids or try to imagine the life you had before they came along.
