It's morning already?

This morning when my alarm went off, I reverted back to my college days, except worse!  I was cussing and grumbling, that stupid *7^@! alarm clock went off, I'm too d&*^! tired to get up, grumble, grumble, cuss, cuss.  I was so tired and didn't want to get up and go to work.  It seemed like I had just fallen asleep.  In college, I think SH*+ was the first word out of my mouth every morning!  I was really glad my kids weren't around to hear me!  Although... I know they've heard far worse.

In fact, yesterday, I heard my twins cuss in front of me for the first time ever.  (They are 16.)  My daughter was frustrated because I was rushing her to get to practice, and she said sh*+.  Then she just about cried realizing she'd said it in front of me!  She apologized profusely.  Later, my son told her to quit slamming the d*mn door.  He didn't apologize!

I guess those words are pretty tame compared to what I hear from some teenagers.  At least my daughter was mortified that she said it in front of me.  Of course, when I was their age, I'm sure I said those two words and many more, just not in front of my parents, especially my dad.  Oh, I hate to think what would have happened if I said that in front of my dad.  In fact, I remember saying "We're gonna beat their butts" in front of my dad when I was in fifth grade.  I was talking about our football team beating our opponent.  He came unglued over the word "butt" from a fifth graders.  Needless to say, even into adulthood, I was careful with my language in front of him.

This was a fun trip down memory lane.

Winterguard-First Competition of the 2013 Season!

First it was FFA, raising a goat, sponsoring committees, fundraising, etc. and I still have to do some of that stuff, but I'm off to my fourth season as a "Guard Mom" chaperoning contests and chauffering my daughter to practices.  And in case you don't know what Winterguard is, it's the Color Guard field team dancing and spinning flags, rifles, and sabers to music.  It's big here in Texas!

Their first contest was held Saturday, February 2nd (wasn't that Groundhog Day, too?  I didn't get to "celebrate" it!  LOL).  Out of 13 guards in their class, they won third place.  Pretty good for the first competition, because as the season goes on, the show keeps getting better.  This show wasn't perfect.  There were a few drops, etc.  but it was great!  The first time I see their show is always fabulous!  I always think, "I never knew she could do that!" or "I'm so impressed!"

Anyway, here's the video, just a little shaky, and really only showing half the floor because I wanted to keep my camera on my daughter the whole time, and my camera doesn't have a wide enough angle to shoot the whole gym, unless I got at the very top.  Then, it would be diffcult to see who's who.  Oh, well.  Enjoy Subscribe in a reader
