Kent is my Boyd

Well, the last 13 hours have been crazy!  First, I want you to know that I didn't make it to the garden at all yesterday or this morning.  So I'll do that tonight and for Friday, I"ll have pictures from my garden posted.

I got home from work last night, changed clothes and went to church, thinking I had praise team practice.  Well, I did, but it was after church.  I could have sat and had a leisurely supper.  Oh well.  I sat in on Bible Study and the kids went to Youth Group.  Then we practiced.  It was a good practice.  I warned them that I am going to be at band camp all weekend, so they have to have someone on standby justincase I get sick or something.

After church, Daughter, Son and I went to Wallyworld (aka as Wal-Mart) to pick up snacks and advil.  We got Twizzlers (strawberry and black), Doritos, granola bars, Rice Krispy Treats, and cappuccino mix.  Son and I loves Hills Brothers English Toffee flavored.  Then we ran to Burger King to grab them supper at 8:30 pm.

Once we got home Daughter and I settled into So You Think You Can Dance.  It's the final four and we are totally voting for Kent Boyd!  Have you seen this cutie patootie!  Monday night, the family and I went to a Drum & Bugle Show.  We got out of our car to walk to the stadium and this couple got out of their car to walk tot he stadium.  The lady turned around and decided to take the magnet that was on her car.  I spied it just as she turned around and it was for a "Vote for Kent Boyd" magnet! As a side note:  Daughter, Son, Miss V and Miss A are going to the SYTYCD tour in October.  Daughter wants to make a shirt that says, "KENT IS MY BOYD!"  How cute is that?

We started talking and this lady's daughter danced with Kent up in Wapakoneta, OH.  She told us how nice he is and how he is so humble about the whole journey.  The town has raised a lot of money so his parents can be there for each episode and how he had outgrown the teachers and studio where he took lessons and how he would go on Youtube, watch dances and learn them himself.  It was so nice talking with this lady!  So last night Daughter and I and Miss Varsity called and voted for him as much as we could.

And then it got really windy, and started to thunder and lightning.  at 10:06 last night, the electric went out.  It came back on, and then went out again!  So we grabbed a few flashlights, fumbled for the aim and flame and lit candles.  Daughter and Son took a shower by candle light.  I opened a couple of windows in my bedroom and went to bed.  Here was the scene while I was reading by the light bulb on my phone.
This is the side table next to my bed.  Books and chargers everywhere.  I just bought some candles, so we were lucky.  But, what do you do when there is hardly any wax left of a candle?  Let me know.  Should I put a whole bunch of scents together?  I plugged my phone in to my charger, justincase the electric came back on.  And you know what?  It did, at 12:07 AM.  The reason I know?  My stupid phone lit up the whole room!  I have a light bulb app on my phone and used it to read.  So I fumbled around, got it all turned off and snoozed more.

Then I was up at 5:30, took a shower, got Daughter and Son up, got dressed, lunch packed for Foxy and was out the door @ 6:37 to take kids to school so they could leave for band camp.  All this time, dark clouds are spreading across the sky, lighning, and sprinkles.  We reach the school, make a run for it, taking in sleeping bags, suitcases, pillows and meds.  I talk to the teachers about meds and start to leave so I won't be late for work.  I see Daughter and tell her to save me a bunk.  She says "I will, but don't go out there."

I ask why and she says, "It's pouring!".  I look around and kids are soaked and spotted with rain.  So I wait a few minutes until it lightens up and then walk quickly to the car and drive off.  So now we're all caught up.

Tonight I will be joining the kids at band camp.  Hope you have a great weekend.  I'll have lots of pictures and band fun to post for you on Monday and Tuesday, probably. 

I have a favor.  I am pretty dumb when it comes to this blog stuff.  I really want a couple of buttons of my own for both my sites.  If someone can direct me in the right direction, or really help me out with this, I would so appreciate it.


  1. I want either Kent or Lauren to win SYTYCD. I think Adacheke(Sp???) deserves to go to final 3, but I really want Kent or Lauren to win.

    If you have an image you want to use or a button, I can help you. I can't really design from scratch.

    Or, Jessica at the Frilly Coconut is awesome. I want to say she just charges $5 for buttons.

  2. I love Kent too!

    Here's an easy button tutorial that really helped me.

  3. I'm rooting for Kent all the way...not only is he talented, but we have to support our fellow Ohioan;) Don't know if you watch AI as well, but Crystal is from my about voting. Oh, gosh! That's awesome that DD is going to see the tour. I want to one of these years.

    Enjoy the rest of your week:)

  4. I paid someone to make me a button. I have no idea how to do that stuff.

  5. Sorry, i don't watch that tv show so therefore Kent...Who? sounds like alot of errands and activities. I have a big house. When the power goes off, it's dark. I have now put a flashlight in the main rooms i'm likely to walk at night. This works for me. Take care. Rose

  6. Kids work so hard at band camp. Awesomeness, though!

    Did you see a DCI (drum corps intl) show? I'm always bummed when they don't perform around here--not for two years now. :-(


  7. Hello! I am a new reader! I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts! Please follow me back at The Nutritionist Reviews and Giveaways:

  8. Kent is absolutely adorable but we're pulling for Lauren because she's an Arizona girl. Cute shirt idea for Kent!!!
