It's Friday ... just a few ramblings

It's Friday ... and that means many things ...

1. Sleep late tomorrow

2. Sleep late tomorrow

3. Sleep late tomorrow

No seriously ... Do you realize that in 14 days... yes that's right 14 DAYS I'll be bringing my son home...

At the present time it's 10:00 at Parris Island and that this exact time in two weeks my son will be a UNITED STATES MARINE!!!!

But first, he must make the Crucible, which is Thursday 10/11 - Saturday 10/13 ... please pray not only for Matt but for the entire Echo Co. One can NEVER have too much prayer.


Yes my Volunteers take on the Georgia Bulldogs tomorrow in Knoxville. I am NOT going to speculate what the outcome will be. Let's just say that I hope Johnny Majors stays the hell away from Knoxville.

Since winter is just right around the corner and since there is not a lot of activity for us during those cold blistery months I found this ... and so we DON'T kill our husbands, boyfriends, Significant Other ...
