I HATE MONDAYS and to top it all off, Josh called in sick today. I hate it when he does that. I bet he didn't even look at our schedule to see if we had anything going on today. Plus there's a men's basketball scrimmage at 6 so I'll have to be here all evening and end up working 12 hours or so. He'd never let me miss a day when we had anything but practices going on. He irritates me sometimes. But it was nice not having to deal with him today. He's been pretty moody lately. He's driving the kids nuts too. Oh well he told me he'd try to get me a day off in the middle of the week so I can't complain. He's a pretty good boss when it comes down to it.

Yesterday I had Angie and Jeremy's wedding. It was fun. The fall colors looked amazing with our brown bridesmaid dresses. We started pictures at noon and were done by 2 and then we had an hour and a half to just sit and wait. The other bridesmaids and groomsmen went to the bar that was down the block from the church. We tried keeping it from Angie but I think she figured it out when she couldn't find any of them. Their unity candle was awesome. It had their engagement picture on the front and the inside of their invitations on the back. I need to get a hold of her to get the lady's name that made it. It was awesome.

Well here are the vests that Eric picked out. They're cool. I've never been to a wedding where they had camo vests. Plus Eric and all the groomsmen love to hunt so it's quite appropriate for them to all wear camo. Plus I was thinking about having a couple of my girls wear green dresses just to tie in the green and the purple. We're not having anything else camo, I'm not a freak. Plus having this made Eric happy and that's a plus.

Today our football team plays McKendree College out of Illinois. They are really good so hopefully it'll be a good game. Last year we went to McKendree and they stomped us. It was a terrible game. We had a lot of injuries, which seems to happen when you're getting your butt beat. But this year, hopefully it'll go a lot better. This team should be doing a lot better than their record shows. We've had a lot of injuries this year, and it's hard to win a game without all our key players. I just hope today's game goes well and no one gets hurt.

Last night the men's and women's soccer teams wore pink jerseys for breast cancer awareness month. It was awesome. There were a lot of basketball players and football players at their games that usually don't come because they play in the afternoon. But last night they played under the lights that Musco donated. It looked pretty cool out there in the middle of the field it was all dark and then there was a lit up soccer field right in the middle.

Well everyone is away this weekend, but of course we have men's and women's basketball practices to cover. Some days my job is pretty irritating. When we start having kids, I'd love to work a 9-5 job at a rehab clinic or physical therapy clinic but there aren't many around here to do that at. I definitely don't want to be working 90 hour weeks when I have kids. My mom was home for us when we were growing up so I want to be there for my kids too. And since Eric is working normal hours now I want to get a job that has more regular hours.

I got my bridesmaid dresses picked out. I think they'll look good on all the girls. We're using the purple one's on the left. I love the color. Not I just have to get all of the girls in to get fitted. That might take a little bit. Hopefully not too long because they take a while to get in and I want them to get altered if they need to. Since we're having 5 attendants, I'd like to do purple, green, purple, green, purple. So that there's a variety up there for people to look at. But I don't know how that'll fly with everyone else. I need to talk to my mom about that.

Today we had Trent's birthday. I can't believe he turned 16. That's crazy. We all go together at Beth and Bob's house. We played a game of touch football and of course a game of horse on the basketball court. I was on fire today. I think I won 3 games in a row of horse. Of course Eric and I both suck when it comes to shooting baskets, but I'm ok with that. We ran to town to look at bark collars for our dogs, but didn't find any cheap ones. There was a complaint for our side of the block that all our dogs barked too much. So we thought instead of paying a $300 fine, we'd just go buy a couple and put them on the dogs. Hopefully we can find some cheap ones.

One year ago today my grandma died. I can't believe it's been a year already. And today of all days, I have to go with the football team on a road trip. Hopefully it'll go by fast and I can hang out with my family tonight. I know my mom and my aunts won't be doing very well. I've called my mom a couple of times this morning and she hasn't answered. I bet they're all out at the cemetary putting stuff on my grandma's grave. They keep it really decorated and pretty. She always had plants and flowes and wind chimes and little knick knacks out in her yard so they do the same for her grave site. I need to go put something there today. Maybe I'll get a stone or a yard thing for her.

Happy birthday Reese Layne!!! She turns 2 years old today. Even though she's only my niece, she's my pride and joy. I love her with all my heart, and can you blame me? Look at how beautiful she is! She can do no wrong. We bought her a bunch of stuff. She's having a princess party so I bought her a princess sleeping bag. We bought her a Dora the Explorer tent that she can camp in. We also bought her a bunch of books. She loves to be read to. She's so smart. She can count to 10, knows most of her alphabet, and she knows a lot of colors. Amazing isn't she. She's the best!!!
