THE DARKNESS . . .


What did I learn from mine?  Let me tell you; I have a few.

Be back soon.

I'm looking for the color to come back into the room.

AHHH . . . CHOO!

Sneeze!  Keaton even passed out today when they were putting all the allergens in him.  "Get the doctor quick."  Keaton has had enough with this congestion after 18 years, so today we had the real test. He's allergic to many things. I hope the medicine the doctor prescribed can help him get better now.



 The good news for Keaton the doctor said, "No more yard work for you."

We even tried Grandma Bonnie's trick Uncle Blaine. Hahaha, it didn't work.  I probably should have put a coat on him too, like mom did to you. Anything to keep the body from these harmful elements.

The doctor says cats and dogs will be a problem, but he can be a cowboy and ride a horse as long as he's out of the dust.

"Come on in, let's eat breakfast."  Interestingly,  the test showed Keaton wasn't allergic to avocados, bananas or nuts.  Keaton itches every time he eats these foods.

I'm off to the store to get the medicine.  I got to get this boy better.

TICKLED PINK

I didn't see Keely much while she was here.  I got Friday evening, that's basically all, but when I got home from St. George this afternoon, this is what I found at my computer.

This makes me happy.  I'm trying to be a good mother.

GONE? What's it all about?

Keaton and I met up with Mike in St. George this weekend. Mike was coming from his fishing trip from Mohave, and I was coming from Cedar City.  We had things to do in St. George and we wanted to attend Kaden's soccer game on Saturday evening; Kandi needed a photographer. (Pictures will be coming Kandi Dear.) You know how I love to be involved with family.  I'm good for any activity, just give me a call and remind me.

Keaton and I first went to the softball games, "Yes, Mike, I went with him."  We ran into Kirk's grand kids there that we hadn't seen for years. They have been GONE too long.  It was so fun to see them.

 Here's Kailee the ball player and
Keaton, Amy, Austin and Lexi.  I'll tell you this story later.

A few hours later, Mike picked me up from the softball fields and we left Keaton there. We wanted to go out to dinner before the big soccer game, but first Mike needed to go back to the house to shower.  He said he smelled like fish.

While we were there, I pulled out my phone and said, "You got to listen to this."  I wanted to show Mike my new favorite music video, you know, "Sugar" Maroon 5, Adam Levine.  Would he like it as much as me?

He did and he wanted to look up the lyrics so he could sing along with it. I was thrilled.  I can't wait until the music comes on again because I want to see if he can feel the beat and dance to it.  Have you seen Mikey dance?  Now, that's another story.  He makes us all laugh.  Here I'll find a picture. "Start down low," as he taps his foot. Oh, he's cute.

Then Mike popped up, "Kim, I heard a song the other day that reminded me of us. The man singing was all confused wondering what HIS wife meant as well.  He didn't know if GONE meant gone for good or just GONE for a little while. Was it a whiskey night or just 2 beers?"  "What is it?" I asked.  Mike didn't know, but he sang a few lines. I had heard it before and I knew Keaton could find it.  I was curious; I wanted to know.

Benjas for dinner and then off to the soccer game to watch Kaden. It was a beautiful night under the lights.

 Kaden was good.  He was FAST!  We were so proud of him and we are going to come watch him again.
 He almost had 2 assists too.  Keep it up Kaden.  We were impressed.
Kandi and Bill and their wonderful family.  Enjoy this Kandi, before you know it, they will be all grown up and GONE.  It's not fun!

After the game, Mike and I were going to go home and have ice cream, but we slicked up the Benja's leftovers and went to bed.  The next morning we hollered at Keaton, "Come in."  Keaton jumped in bed with us and we heard about his night and then I asked Keaton to find me that song Mike was talking about.

Chris Cagle What Kind of Gone.  It's fitting.  I think it's my new favorite song now too.  Oh, me and Mikey, what are we going to do?

It's a cute, catchy song:

I heard the door slam and I couldn't tell. Was it just the wind or was she mad again; ahhh Hell! She's getting in her car. I hollered, "Baby, is there something wrong?" Thought I heard her say something soundin' like I'm gone. But these days, gone can mean so many things.

There's gone for good and there's good and gone. And there's gone with the long before it. I wished she'd been just a little more clear. Well there's gone for the day and gone for the night. And gone for the rest of your doggone life. Is it whiskey night or just a couple beers? I mean what kind of gone are we talkin' 'bout here?

Well it's gettin' dark out, she ain't back yet. Ain't called home, turned off the phone; Ah man, ha, this might not be good. I would have stopped her, when she went to leave. But I didn't 'cause I didn't really think what I'm thinkin' now. I'm still not sure what gone is all about. 

'Cuz there's gone for good and there's good and gone. And there's gone with the long before it. I wish she'd been just a little more clear. Well there's gone for the day and gone for the night. And gone for the rest of your doggone life. Is it whiskey night or just a couple beers? I mean what kind of gone are we talkin' 'bout here?

Is it the kind of gone where she's at her mom's coolin' down; She'll come around;or the kind that says you had your chance. And she ain't comin' back

Well there's gone for good and there's good and gone. And there's gone with the long before it. I wish she'd been just a little more clear. Well there's gone for the day and gone for the night. And gone for the rest of your doggone life. Is it whiskey night or just a couple beers? I mean what kind of gone are we talkin' 'bout?
What kinda gone are we talkin' 'bout? What kinda gone are we talkin' 'bout here? What kinda gone?



Mike and I are both confused.  We need some help around here.

SWEET

 I'm hurtin' baby,  I'm broken down. I need your loving, lovin. I need it now.

I have some new songs on my Ipod this weekend thanks to Keely Bugs. They will get me movin'.

Sugar, Yes Please, Won't you come and put it down on me.
Yeah you show me good lovin. Make it alright. Need a little sweetness in my life.

Go watch it on You Tube:  (Maroon 5 - Sugar)  There's two bad words though, but the video is so cute, that's probably why I like it so much.
You'll want to be dancing with your Sugar.
Hurry Home Mikey.

You know Hollywood, my niece's daughter?  Well, now her brother has been asked to go audition for The Voice.  I think he should sing this song. He'd turn Adam Levine around. The crowd would go crazy!

Adam Levine - Maroon 5 - What a Voice.

I can't wait now to go on a run; I'm all energized with this song. It's after 1am when Keely comes home and comes into the office smiling, "Keaton told me you were in the office rockin'."  I've been listening and watching it nonstop for about an hour now; over and over again. I don't want to go to sleep. hahaha  Don't ya just feel the beat?  I'm feelin' it.  How about you Mikey?

Sidenote: Keely informed me that she wanted to go see Maroon 5 in concert and knew I was her only hope to get to go, "My mom is the only one that I could afford to buy tickets with, they were $200 each."  I told her, "We would have went?"  Mom, I told you they were in Las Vegas in December. "I can't remember that."

"WHERE'S THE RED HEAD?"

 She's home. Oh, I love my girl. She is something. I am so proud of U Keely Bugs.

She has grown up and is so appreciative and wise.  She is teaching me things about life.  I love U Keely.  I'm so glad I got U! BIG Heart, BIG, RED HEART. I love you.

GAME OVER

Winners . . . Oh Yeah!
