Catching Up

Well, I still don't know what is wrong with the picture deal...I meant to try this post from one of the kids computers...maybe tomorrow. Tonight, I'm tired, so we will work with what we have. Isn't adaptability a key component in life? Thanks Lesli for telling me how you upload pictures. The problem is, I don't know how to use Flickr. BUT, I need to learn, so I'll give that a shot too.
Speaking of Lesli, pay her a visit. She is giving away some way cool stuff. I'd also like to give her a huge THANK YOU and cyber hug for reaching out and sharing her daughters story with me. The last few weeks have been a little difficult for me. I am coming out of my first major RA flare since I was diagnosed. It's not easy to get your confidence in life back to wake up one day and get smacked in the face with pain and swelling all over again. With Lesli's help, I reached out to the world of RA. I had never gotten "involved" in that world prior to a couple of weeks ago. I like to call it denial. I believe I have entered the world of acceptance and I think I like this world. Thanks again Lesli....I'm proud to call you a friend.
So this is what I found on my camera...we went to Nashville and somehow, I didn't find the time to get the camera out. I think it took ALL of my energy to make it through my meetings and the ritual walk through the mall. Once again, I was bored and Savannah was more than willing to entertain me.

She was eating a hamburger...this child can turn anything into a photo op!! I guess it's kind of a neat thing. Usually when I pull my camera out, which is ALL the time, people RUN. I used to be that way too. I never wanted my picture taken. Now, I don't mind at all. I'm not as bad as SavyG. I don't jump over others to get in the picture, but I have found that I like the memories. Who cares if I don't have on any makeup or if my hair is a mess? It's about having that moment captured to reflect on it later.

Savannah will have NO trouble finding pictures to reflect on her memories!! That's one of the little things I love about her. Dalton doesn't mind having his picture taken either, he's just not as up my rear end as she is...
I'm loving the Olympics!! ...just a little side note.
Dalton wanted to make a Valentine for someone special! Since she was on the approved marriage list, I helped him. I thought it turned out pretty cute. (If I could move the pictures, I would have presented this from front to back instead of backwards, BUT I CAN'T!)

Dalton has some amazing self confidence. I don't know too many fifth grade boys that would have given this to a little girl...but he didn't have any trouble with it. He came home and said, "Mom, she was shocked, and she LOVED it...I mean LOVED LOVED it." He is sooooo sweet. That's one of the little things I love about him. Jeff was even shocked he gave it to her:)

It's the end of an era. I got my hair cut last week. Ashlee (my amazing hip hairstylist) curled my hair and I really liked it. I was going to give it a try so I pulled the ole curling iron from HIGH SCHOOL out to give it a whirl. It doesn't work anymore....I almost cried. I know I teared up.

Just documenting my memories...don't be hatin'. I know most of you girls in person, I also happen to know you were rocking the BIG HAIR. I have a confession to make. MY NAME IS KACY ACREE AND I LOVE BIG HAIR!!! That is one of the reasons I wear it short. The longer it gets, the bigger I make it. I can't help it. I have inner REBA. Ashlee is working with me on this, as I try to grow it out. I confessed my problem to her and she said she wouldn't let me go there. Since she works downstairs from my office and there is potential for her to see me everyday, it might work. The curling iron death was probably a good thing. RIP.

I'm sad about the Ole Miss player that died today at practice. He was a graduate of the school across the street from my office. I can't begin to imagine what his family must be going through.
Jeff discovered Dalton's new booger collection tonight. I just love him. He had one that I found when we moved. I have to say, I'm glad I didn't find this one. What's up with that? I asked him if he had tissue on his night stand would he use it? He said, "maybe!!!!" WHAT? I have to wonder if that's a difference in boys and girls. It never occurred to me to collect them. I just love these kids. They keep you on your toes!
Have a fabulous weekend!! I'm going to!
