Weekly Pic--You Are My Sunshine

I was looking through old pictures tonight and I found this one of Hallie on her 5th birthday. When she was little-bitty, one of the nicknames Poppy gave her was "Sunshine". Wasn't she cute? I just love that kid.

In the never-ending saga of shortness that plagues my life...this man stood in front of me the entire time at The Rock and Worship Roadshow. Seriously, I do not make this stuff up. Once again, the tallest individual in the building chose to sit directly in front of me.Here's an idea~remember how they used to make us line up by height from tallest to shortest on class picture day in elementary school? The tall people got to be first because they stood on the top riser. Us "shorties" were last in line and had to stand on the floor.
What if concert venues required you to line up in the same manner? Tall people in the back, shorties up front.
I think that would be nothing "short" of wonderful.

I Get No Respect

A few days ago, I opened the cabinet under my bathroom sink and was greeted by this guy.
"Somebody" thought it would be funny to scare their mother silly.
Nice try, but you don't frighten me. First of all, cobras are not typically found in Hometown, Texas. And second, raising kids is much more dangerous than poisonous snakes hiding under cabinets!

I haven't blogged in a while. I've been a little down lately what with Joel being gone for so stinking long on this silly tour. Then, I spent most of last week sitting with my dad in the hospital. I've tried a few times to write something or at least do a "Weekly Pic", but honestly, I got nothing. Or the things I do have are gloomy and a little depressing. I didn't want to sound like the whiny baby that I am, so I've just been silent.
There are still plenty of good things though. Hallie is playing softball for the first time ever and while she's not the best player on the team, she's also not the worst. I'm sure there will be some great posts in the future about her blossoming athletic prowess. (Provided that she takes after her father instead of me...)
Another exciting thing is that I'm starting a new job! I've been a stay-at-home-bum, er, I mean mom, long enough. I'm actually just joining the workforce part-time, but I'm really looking forward to it.
So please don't give up on me (because I know there are so many of you out there who hang on my every word). I'll get my groove back...sooner or later ;)
