You Soccer Moms Got Nothing on ME ~ or ~ What Happened to May??

Two posts. That's all I got.

As in, that's all I had for May. 

My personal worst! Like going back to the days I started these Ramblings! 

So, this is writer's block?
Kind of. But mostly I've just been busy.
Crazy busy. 

And that means I was driving. A lot. 

So, I thought I would share. 

• Jr high track practice.  No really. This meant that Lulu wasn't riding the bus home so I had to go down and pick her up at 5 pm. Everyday.

Total time spent: 1-1.5 hours 
Total mileage: 50 

• Jr high track meets. Most all track meets in this area are held in the northern town of Cut Bank. They have the best track. And the worst weather.

I don't know how you figure the windchill factor, but I totally believe this penguin. Penguins know about this stuff, especially the Giant Northern Penguins of Cut Bank. Plus, I've only been in Cut Bank, like twice when it wasn't windy. And by windy, I'm talking 40+ mph with gusts up to 80 mph. The chart doesn't even go to 80 mph! Seriously, I've seen it! I've seen my 2 year old's feet come off the ground. It's happened. 

Total time: all day with departure time 6:15 am
Total Mileage:  210

• Softball. Just before track ended, Bean decided to go out for Softball. This is a sweet little girl who has never shown the slightest inkling of wanting to do anything with sports. I was so excited! She learned real quick the phrase, "Softball, ain't nothing soft about it!" She was hit in the head more than once in those first days of practise. She got to the point that she just wanted to quit.

 But she stuck it out and stayed true to her commitment. They practiced Tuesdays and Thursdays, in the evenings. Games were Mondays and Wednesdays, and were stretched out all over. So instead of clearing up my schedule, it really just got crazier.

Total Time: 4 to 6 hours
Total mileage: 50 to 210

But, even though schools been out for over a week, we are heading into our last week of sports… (Well, sort of!) We have softball tournaments this week (so far they are undefeated!) and basketball camp too.

Does it ever really end?
I hope not!
This Mama's having a heck of a lot of fun!


  1. I recognize that penguin anywhere! I just recently moved to Chester Montana a month ago from Billings. I'm originally from Hamilton and trying to get use to the flatness of the hi-line! You are a busy momma with your kiddos sporting events :)

  2. Busy schedules seem to be pretty much the norm. :)

    My brothers played baseball all the way into college... I really miss those summer Saturday mornings going to their games. This past spring, my 4 year old was on a "soccer team" (quotation marks intended). Brought back some memories. She seemed to enjoy it, so maybe I'll get to enjoy some more sporting events from the cheering section now that my little ones are getting a bit bigger!

  3. I've missed you - feel your pain (in the backside from all the driving) but share the thrill of the kids accomplishments. You get the metal for endurance MOM


Thanks, Y'all for sharing your thoughts! I'm love'n hear'n from ya!
