It's Monday again *weeps* lol I'm kidding! I actually don't even mind being up and at work today even though it was still dark outside when I got here O_0... For the first time in who knows how long, Trey was actually awake when I dropped him off at school this morning. He goes on to ask me "Mama why is it dark outside?" Lol! I tried to explain to him that when the seasons change it stays dark longer, but he didn't understand. Kids are too funny!
Speaking of my little man, unfortunately he's pretty much accident prone like his mama and is always getting hurt in some kind of way. (I'm hoping he'll grow out of this!!) I got a call from his teacher on Friday while I was at work saying that Trey had hurt his arm at school. He was apparently playing on the carpet sitting down, and one of his friends were running around and ran into his arm which caused his wrist and hand to bend backwards. I initially thought it was broken because his teacher said he wouldn't move it. After he kept complaining to her about it, I got off work and took him to the doctor. Him being the dramatic child that he is, had me carrying him into the doctor's office, then into the hospital where they had to do his xray. Luckily nothing was broken or fractured, but they gave him a wrist brace to wear for a few days. I can't help but thank God that it wasn't more serious! (God knows I can't deal with being his nurse for too long, I'm telling ya'll he is EXTREME when he's hurt!! LOL)
Anywho, this weekend may have just been the best weekend of my whole year and I'm not even hyping it up! Majority of my mom's side of the family live out of town, but many of them came home this weekend for my aunt and cousin's birthday party on Saturday. If you know my family then you know there is never a dull moment! We partied at the family house on both Friday and Saturday night like there was no tomorrow lol. Every time we all get together it's definitely a celebration! There was good food (and I'm talking fried fish, baked fish, baked beans, burgers, hot dogs, pasta salad, steaks, shrimp skewers... you name it we had it!), there were endless drinks, good music, and just plain old family fun! They even had champagne and jello shooters, so you know we got it in lol.
I'm the type of person who is very big on family, and I'd rather spend time partying with my family over going out any day. My mom recently moved an hour away, and I never realized how much I missed her until this weekend. I also got to spend time with my grandma on my mom's side who lives four hours away. I don't get to see her enough, so that definitely made my weekend! On top of that, there are twelve remaining siblings of my grandma including her, and of those twelve seven of them were with us this weekend. Do you know how much of a blessing that is for me to see all them together? I kept leaving the younger family members from my generation to go upstairs and catch some old stories from my grandma and her siblings when they were growing up. I'm such an old soul :)
Obviously I had an epic weekend, so it's not hard to see why I don't mind being at work today. One thing in life that I never want to lose are my memories. I never knew I would miss my childhood so much, but in the meantime I plan to make new memories to look back and bask in as well. Hopefully as each decade passes I'll continue to be able to look back and smile at everything that happened in my life!
I hope everyone has a POSITIVE MONDAY!! Take this week and think back to times in your past that were unforgettable to you. I guarantee it will brighten your days! Also take a look below for just a few pics from my wonderful weekend!
