Tell me it is not true!

I am finding it really hard to comprehend that I am the mother of a 9 year old!!! Where does the time go? Seriously. My mom would always say to me " I remember when you were born like it was yesterday..." and I thought she was a crazy lady!! But it is SO TRUE!!!!!! I am so lucky to have Ryeigh in my life! She is a great kid and I love her so much. She just needs to stop growing.

Earth, Wind & FIRE!!

Today was a blissful spring day here in Killeen, Texas!! We has these crazy winds that were blowing my kids over, slamming the car doors onto us when we were trying to get out of the car, and blowing trampolines into neighbors yards! This place was down-right crazy!! This wind was so crazy that it even caused a "controlled burn" to get out of control!! We had to leave our house for a few hours because it was getting to close to our neighborhood gas station that they thought it might blow up! I took a few pictures of this interesting event in our boring central Texas lives. The picture of the smoke behind the houses it right down the street from our house, then there is one that is taken at the end of our housing development, and the one with the car in it is THE SUN!! It was so smoky outside that you could literally look at the sun without even needing to squint, and then of course I threw in some pictures of the kids trying to play baseball at the park. If you wanna see the news clip then you can go to

I am so sick of being sick. Seriously... I had strep throat for like 3 days a week ago and now I have - something.. I don't even know. I have had a stupid fever for 4 days now and I have a constant headache. rrrg. This whole entire city is sick really. I even saw on the news that some school districts were closed last week because so many students and faculty were sick. I have so many friends that have been sick too not to mention my kids - they all took a turn with strep throat too and various flu like illnesses all in the last week. aaahhhh!! I just want to be healthy again.
