It has poured all morning long. I’m not going to lie. The couch is calling my name and all I want to do is take a nap as I listen to the rain fall. But. Laundry.
If you follow me on social media, you saw my post about my laundry. I have laundry coming out of everywhere. I am so bad about getting behind. I can stay on top of it for a couple of weeks and then an out-of-town trip comes up and I get behind. When I get behind it takes me weeks to catch up. Am I the only one that this happens to?
I did choose though, to not stress about it. A clean house and caught up laundry doesn’t define who I am. Life is busy and crazy and sometimes the laundry piles up and the dirty dishes stay in the sink for a couple of days.
So today, I am planning on finishing it all up. We just got a text letting us know that softball games are cancelled and this is our first week without football practice. So that means a night in for the Eternos. We will be working on laundry if you need us!
Speaking of football. We finished up our season this Saturday. It’s always bittersweet to see it end, but we are ready for some basketball around here. Jojo has been taking lessons during the off-season and this year we are playing with our tournament team in a local league. It’s our first year that we won’t play with the rec dept. I’m going to miss watching all of our local boys play this year, but I’m excited to see Jojo continue to grow on the court. He improved so much last tournament season and I can’t wait to see how he does this year.
Our CrossFit gym celebrated our ONE year anniversary with an awesome scavenger hunt. I think we ended up running five miles total after it was over. My team came in first woohoo! We are so thankful for our community. They have made this an amazing first year. I am also thankful for our friends Rob and Staci. Going into business with friends can be a bit scary, but we’ve said it from the beginning that our friendship is number one. We’ve had a great time and have grown closer. We love you guys!
Saturday night we finally spent some time with our friends who we have missed so much this year. The boys had a blast and even the girls got in on the fun by coming to “boo” the boys. I am so thankful for this group of boys and their parents. I didn’t have this growing up and I am so blessed that my kids do. I love that their friends’ parents are our friends. I can’t wait to see them grow up and go through all of the milestones together. Before we know it, we will be watching them play high school ball, going to homecoming and prom….ahhh I better just stop talking now because I’m going to have a breakdown if I don’t.
On Sunday we went to church. We started a new series called Unlearning Religion. So so good. I also wore my new shirt I bought from one of our local clothing boutiques, Polished Chic. The material is soft and you can dress it up or down. I wore it with my jeans and new leopard shoes from Old Navy. Isn’t it so fun!? #ilovefall
After lunch we went to the gym to make up workouts because it’s competition month and we need those points ha!
We ended our night with all of us sitting at the table eating dinner. This doesn’t happen very often because we are so busy.
We started our Virtual Bible Study yesterday. Make sure to go to my Facebook page to see the video and join in on the discussion. You can also read my post from yesterday here. Y’all it’s so good. You don’t want to miss out.
This album has been on repeat this weekend. The worship team sang the song Grateful from it and it spoke such truth to my heart. Since dad passed, worship has been hard. For a long time I couldn’t sing along during worship. I couldn’t even mouth the words because everything inside me was trying not to lose it. Each week it gets better. This Sunday I really did feel like I was finally able to worship in a way that I had not since dad passed. I just keep thinking to myself that as I stand and worship, that is what my dad is doing at that moment. He is worshipping too! Face to face with Jesus. Ahhh….chills!!!
And last but not least, today 17 years ago, my hubby asked me to be his girlfriend. I can’t believe we’ve spent that many years together. I am so thankful that God chose Joseph for me. He is my best friend. He is my person. My constant in this crazy life. We’ve had highs and gosh we’ve had some lows, but through it all we have stayed together. He has taught me how to love selflessly. He makes me brave and encourages me to shoot for the stars. Thank you babe for loving me and all of my crazy.
And that wraps up this Monday blog post. It was a little bit of everything. I hope you have a wonderful rainy Monday.
