I think my candle is about to meet in the middle. I am exhausted.

Yesterday Sanford had to be taken to the ER from work by ambulance. Heat exhaustion!! His whole body was cramping and drawn up. After some fluids he was feeling better. He is still tired and sore, but otherwise doing well.

So, my one night of the week that is "normal" was spent in the hospital.

Today we had cheer practice - or maybe it was world war 3?? I finally had to go "street rat crazy" to get them to calm down, listen to each other and work as a team.

And, I am working on the football sign for the gym. For the second time. We scrapped the first one.

Somewhere during my days I'm also finding time for teaching. Novel concept!!! Oh, and mediator for fighting bffs. High school drama. There's not enough money in the world for me to go back to high school!!

Tomorrow is JV game number two. I have to make a flying trip to Wal Mart before the game to get the supplies for our "emergency bag." It's going to be a long couple of days. I do, however, really enjoy being so busy.

My scale is being a jerk-face. I blame it on tummy issues. It's been days...days, I said!!! I will have to remedy that pretty soon...

I kicked our pre-practice workouts into overdrive today. Well, actually - mine. The girls still dawdled around on the track with grimaces on their faces. But I got a quick mile in - with three circuits of bleachers. I even got a couple of cheers when I got to the top of the bleachers. Sweating feels so good!!!

Since I've been home I had to upload the dance video to youtube so our girls can *hopefully* learn the dance for Friday's blackout pep rally.

I'm hoping for a good night's sleep...and a stress free day tomorrow. But, when dealing with teenagers, stress in inevitable.

Have I mentioned how much I love my job(s)???


  1. You are "Woman of the YEAR" for doing what you do with teenagers - having (only) two, I give you ALL the credit in the world!!!

  2. One day I want to say what you say: sweat feels good ... (I'm not even close!)

  3. Wow, Jess, just wow. You are like Super Women or something.

  4. I can't get over how busy you are! I'd be going crazy. I only have 2 kids and can't keep up with them. You have dozens!
