Boys Will Be Boys

Boy has it been a while since I posted! I have been out of town 4 of the last 6 weeks and I am TIRED. The boys and their daddy have been real troopers as I have left them to their own devices while traveling back to Tennessee to be with my mom. She is doing much better and should be ready to move to a rehabilitation center sometime this week or next. A couple of weeks of in-patient rehab should help her get back on her feet again. Thanks again for all of your thoughts and prayers. I know that God has had his hand on her recovery process.

Now that I feel I can focus on home for a few weeks I will have to get in touch with my domestic side. Our home has been lacking a woman's touch for some time now and it IS SHOWING IT! I don't even want to tell you what the laundry room smells like...yuck. The boys have gotten used to a lifestyle of quick dinners or fast food which is not good for anyone. I was cooking a good home cooked meal one evening last week when Andrew came in the kitchen dressed in a camo outfit with his gun drawn (a stick from the backyard) and said, "You're under arrest". I said, "Why, what did I do?" He said, "you're under arrest for cooking a yucky dinner". I cracked up. I guess the smell of fresh veggies and chicken cooking didn't smell as good as I thought. You know we are in trouble when my good eater is turning his nose up. Time to change our eating habits!

I can only imagine what your house looked like after being gone for four weeks! However, I am so glad your Mom is doing better!

That dinner story is a hoot! It sounds like something Carson would say. He would pick McDonald's over any homecooked meal :(

Hope you have a great week!

LOL at the dinner comment. That is too funny. They sure do adjust to "yummy" convience meals, don't they? hahahaha!
