I feel like I should sign up for the game show “Jeopardy” right now. Yes, Alex. I’ll take three. No wait. Let’s make that six. Yes. Six cups of coffee for $300.
Clearly, I’m not thinking clearly and three cups of coffee have not helped my exhaustion. Maybe I’ll try four when this cup is gone.
I got up at 3:45 this morning when Hubby got up and then, went back to bed for about two more hours. But anyone knows that those two hours when you try to go back to sleep feels like 10 minutes. And your brain is in a constant state of dreaming. For the love. I enjoy a good dream, but not when I’d rather just SLEEP.
ANYWAY. I’m a little tired.
I meant to blog more this week. But I had a lot of things running around in my brain. And you know me and trying to make decisions…I’m not great at it. So, I just did what any good person would do. I avoided making a decision. Hence the lack of blogging.
I’ll tell you about some of those things that were running around in my brain.
For one: I had an epiphany. You know, that moment when you see or understand something in a new or very clear way. Well. I guess I sort of had an epiphany. (Bless. I can’t make up my mind right now to save my life. That is called tired brain. Or mom brain. It is reminiscent of how a mom felt when she was nursing a newborn and was being the good, loving mother and she got up every two hours to feed her tender new life rather than get a minute of good sleep.)
In my sort-of-epiphany moment, I began to think maybe it was something I should share on the blog. But I wasn’t sure I should get all deep about fear and how it can paralyze you and stifle you. So, I nixed that blog idea. For now.
Then, I thought about writing a Weekend Recap and sharing about the fun time I had taking the boys and some neighbor kids to see the movie Hotel Transylvania 2 last Friday afternoon, which was ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. (I was laughing out loud so much. I was getting tickled with myself, I tell you.) (It is definitely a movie I’d recommend you go to.) (Oh, and take the kids, too…they’ll love it almost as much as you.)
Another blog post idea I had was sharing about the football games that Nate and Maxim have played in and how they’ve been so delightful to watch. Well, I’ll share some pics…
Along with Weekend Recap ideas, I thought maybe I would share how Hubby and I took the boys to Bloomsbury Farm on Sunday afternoon…in hopes of encouraging you to do some type of fall fun with your family, if you haven’t yet. Well, I took tons of pictures. With that in mind, I’ve made a decision. (The angels just sang, I believe. I made a decision in this tired, sleepy state I’m in at this moment.) So, here was our family fun at Bloomsbury Farm.
Sunday, we went to church, came home and changed, then headed for some good ol’ family fun down on the farm. As in Bloomsbury Farm. We love us some Bloomsbury Farm!
We raced big “tractors”…
Then, we went and shot paintball guns at targets (metal roosters, old tin buckets, etc…)…
Next up, we enjoyed lunch at Bloomsbury Farm – grilled hamburgers and yummy fries. And Maxim just HAD to get this souvenir…
Bloomsbury Farm has so much to do. The boys played on swings, ran on tires, buried each other in the corn, and had a great time.
We didn’t go through the adult corn maze because it was HUGE. But we enjoyed the kids maze. Of course, I had to think of the movie Children of The Corn when we went into the field (hahaha)…
We enjoyed going through the haunted barn, taking a hayrack ride out to the pumpkin patch, and more!
After grabbing a caramel apple, drinks, and other snacks, we called it a day.
And that is how our weekend went. It was another beautiful fall weekend, spending time together as a family.
This weekend, we are heading to my parents. I’ve got my college reunion (20th year…YIKES!) to attend back at Central College. And in typical Angela Banae manner, I’m already struggling with decisions…boots or flats or Converse? Oh boy. What to wear???
You see, it’s not that easy. Saturday morning, many alums are meeting at the local coffeehouse. Flats would be perfect for that. Then, we will head to tailgate and watch the football game. Converse tennis shoes would be perfectly sporty and nice. And following the game, is the class picture and reunion gathering where wearing boots would be perfect. But there’s a few problems with all of these thoughts…I don’t live on campus anymore, so running back to my dorm between social events is not an option. (And my car is not a suitable dressing room option.) And BLESS. The last thing people care about is what shoes someone is wearing. I’m confident I’ll have a few good nights of sleep and with a rested mind, I’ll be able to make the right choice of shoes. #priorities
Because the last thing “Jeopardy“ needs is for me to say, “Yah Alex, I’ll take shoes for $900. Or wait. Is it for $400? Wait. Can I switch game shows? I’d like to phone a friend.”
In all of my indecisiveness, I think I’ll go get that fourth cup of coffee. And call it a day.
