I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

Just Another Tuesday

The boys and I are going to be volunteering at our church on Christmas eve, which is also Charlie's birthday. Christmas eve is on Sunday this year, so there'd be church anyway. I sort of like that. Anyway, the guys had signed up to serve hot apple cider out in the parking lot to people as they get out of their cars. I'm hoping they take pictures, I'd like to see this. I'll be inside serving snacks on trays to people as they cross the lobby, which we have a pretty huge lobby. The only thing that I keep hoping for? C'mon, take a guess....I'll wait. Anyone guess 'that she'll not fall on her butt'? Because, that would be the right guess. I'm already thinking about which would be the most sensible shoes to keep me upright, because, let's face it, I'm not known for being graceful. First thing I told them when they suggested this position for me to volunteer in was to be sure they had back-up trays ready because if I go down, the food will be going down with me. They thought I was joking...they don't know me all that well.

The boys and I had one of our family movie nights last night. Nothing like an old fashioned family movie night...especially when it's ours. Casey's movie choice was See No Evil with the WWE wrestler Kane. He was what you'd call an 'eye picker'. Trust me, don't watch this while your eating dinner, unless you're dieting. It was so gross that all we could do was laugh at a lot of points and I actually put my hands over my eyes and watched through my fingers a couple of times. Too funny. Was it scary? Nah, just silly gross, but that still made for a good time in the Bratcher home. At one point, I said "this is sooo sick" and Casey asked me if I was sorry he'd picked it. I said 'no, of course not' and he said 'you're the perfect mom'. Yeah, I'm sure children's services would see it that way, too, lol. One way or the other, we belong together.

That's about all for now, my darlin's. Hope your day is full of smiles. Hugs to all.

See No Evil was just terrible. I had high hopes for the film, considering I'm a big fan of horror films. Sigh! GARBAAAAAGE!!! However, the crazy mama was a treat to see. Predictible! But fun to watch.

Kathi? Snacks on trays? Moving people in a church lobby? I am officially worried. Yikes!

By the way, there was nothing else to add to story you read on my blog. It was a snapshot. A snapshot doesn't tell the whole story.

I don't believe I have ever seen See No Evil. Although hubby and I watched Slither the other night. Now that was gross. Eeck! And it had some pretty tough language.

Definitely doesn't sound like my kind of movie either, but the things a mom will do for her kids!!

I forgot to say "GO EAGLES!!!" yesterday on my comment, so there it is!!

Good luck with the volunteering on Sunday nite...I will be keeping my fingers crossed that you stay "grounded"!!

Sounds like fun on Christmas Eve. Way to go volunteering - That's really putting yourself out there, since you'll end up talking to lots of people there.

shawn ~ I wish you lived closer, you're my kind of guy. Oh, and I can't help if you left me wanting to know more.

kidd ~ I've seen that movie in Blockbuster (slither) and have had no problem passing it by every time. Thankfully the kids haven't picked it up. There wasn't much language and no nudity in this film...just stuff that made you go 'ouch' and 'eeewwww'.

michelle ~ it's never to late to say 'GO EAGLES', lol! I'm a huge fan of scary movies...but this wasn't one.

3 carnations ~ yeah, I know...I'm so not a people person. All I'll have to do though is offer snacks as people walk by. Well, that and try to remain standing while I do it. :)
