Senior Moments

Y'all. I wasn't kidding when I said life has happened in the nearly three years that I was away from the blogging world. It really has. There've been so many things, many of them being senior moments. And I mean that in a couple of ways. Now, I'm by no means old enough to be having 'senior' moments of the elderly variety, but it seems as though I am having more and more. I forget things. Lots of things. I ache all over. Lots of aches. I indulge in 'old lady' pursuits more and more. However, these are not the senior moments I will write about today.

My babies have grown up.

Lefty graduated high school and moved off to college.
Her first job, at the local SnoCone stand.

She won numerous awards...Young Person of the Year, Arkansas Scholar, and All-State Cheerleader

She led her cheer squad to Nationals at Disney, separate post soon!

A few college visits

Colors Day Queen

Even did a little modeling



Temporary new home...OBU Frances Crawford Hall

Boo has two months left in her high school senior year.
Last event as a dance team member

Got an adorable new car

Went to prom with her then boyfriend (his prom)

Toured several colleges, accepting many scholarships along the way

Theatre became her main attraction, being named to All-State Cast in performance arts.

Senior pics
They are beautiful pieces of me. I can't believe that they are grown already. When I think of them, I picture them as this...

The Inevitable...


Folks, you had to know it was bound to happen. It's probably the most posted topic I have, unfortunately. So here's where it's at...stagnant, that's where. No progress. It isn't that I don't want to lose, and it isn't that I don't want to try. It just doesn't happen. And what do you know, there's Oprah's Weight Watchers commercial again just as I'm posting/thinking about fatness, flab, and unfabulousness. Anyway, back to the topic at hand. I don't want this blog to be a weight loss blog. It's just my life and the things that I think, see, do, love, hate, desire, laugh at, create, etc. It's me. So yes, there will be weight updates. However, I won't bore you continually with weekly, or even regular, posts about my size. I've remained in the 170-175 range since my boob job. It isn't where I want to be, definitely not where I am comfortable, but it is what it is. Don't get me wrong, I will be continuing to work on it, and I will let you know how it's going...just not as the primary focus of this forum. And there's Oprah again, going on about her tacos and pasta. Thanks Oprah.

Already Frustrated

It all started about a month ago, maybe a little before that. I am having a devil of a time getting pics from my phone onto any PC. It is extremely frustrating! I take tons of pictures for work and need to be able to upload them to a particular program that we use for tracking student progress. This year I was also asked to work in conjunction with a high school EAST student (technology geared class) to create a 'yearbook' of sorts for my littles. This too requires using pics, and LOTS of them. I also like to include pictures on my blog posts. All of these things are difficult to do WHEN YOU CAN'T ACCESS THE PICTURES THAT YOU TAKE!!! I got so frustrated after attempting to import them on three different computers, that I called the district technology guy to come help me. Guess what? He couldn't get it to work either. So finally, I think I have it figured out. Maybe. I downloaded the Microsoft OneDrive app to my phone and apparently that will automatically send the pics to my linked computer. So far, it is working, but it sure takes a hella long time when you can only upload ten per batch...

My 'tired of screwing with it' face

Until next time!

Starting Over

Three years??? How in the world has it been that long since I was here? So much life has happened... moments that have been perfect, moments that have been much less than perfect, and of course the moments that are just... moments. I guess that little lapse in posting will give me plenty of topics to write about, eh? I enjoy blogging, it's just a difficult thing to keep up with sometimes. I love being able to use it as a way to document life though, so I will attempt it once again. Stay tuned for more!
