Oh Baby

Today I will be attending the first baby shower for Baby K. I'm excited, and I'm nervous. The date is approaching and I find myself feeling anxious for her arrival. I can't wait to meet her; I love her so much already. March third can't get here soon enough.

I hear the music, I think of the places, and I want to go there.

Some things are so confusing. Just when you think you have it all figured out, "BAM!" Nope, you don't. It makes me squirm a little.

I'd probably hate to know what my dreams are telling me. They've been wild lately. Too much on my mind, maybe? Probably so.

The next month is going to be busy. We have indoor soccer starting all the way in Southport; three baby showers; a wedding and reception of my best friend; multiple dance performances and competitions; and more. Will I be able to keep it all straight? My mind is reeeling.

The superbowl is right around the corner. The teams headed there really don't interest me. I'm rooting for the NY Giants, I guess, given the caliber of who is out there to root for. Not a lot of options! So, if Peyton isn't available, then I guess I'll keep it in the family and cheer on his brother, Eli. With the superbowl being so close (in Indy), I want so badly to go up there and be a part of the celebrations. Not actually on the day of the superbowl, but the pre-cursory activities. I want to zipline down the street; that'd be fun. Probably won't happen, since my calendar is full, but it's fun to imagine what it'd be like.

Thinking of ziplining, that leads me to thinking about my bucket list. I've checked off one thing, at least, in the last couple of months. I really need to get crackin' on that. It's not getting any shorter! And I'm not getting any younger! And when things are happening with your own kids, you kind of put yourself on the back burner. So, my bucket list really needs to be re-visited so that I can see if there is anything I can bust out on it. Tulips at the Biltmore is on there. Maybe I need to take a Spring Break road trip.

Old Times

I love when Jennings County plays South Decatur in basketball. It soooo reminds me of old times when I was a cheerleader, cheering for South when we played EVERY Thanksgiving Eve night. Can't wait until tomorrow night for the game.

It's a new year with new possibilities.
