SUPPORT your Atlanta Braves!!

My girl knows the Braves are #1 win or lose!

So yesterday we made it to the Braves game. They were playing the Yankees. The Braves were totally destroyed by the Yankees. Not just this game but the whole 3 game series.

I think it is a shame that it felt more like you were in New York than in Atlanta. There were way more Yankee fans than Braves fans.

If you read my blog you know I'm a Braves fan and have been since I was a kid.

This year has been a tough one for the Braves. For one, almost the whole team was traded. For us fans we lost a lot of our favorites. Not to mention we are getting a new stadium in a different location which isn't even in Atlanta (which in my opinion is not needed.)

I myself have complained about getting new players and have had to get use to the thought of new ones. I have learned to live with it. We are not getting those players back so why keep crying over it. What we need to do as Braves fans are support these new guys.

All I have seen since they have started is, slamming the team. Oh this team sucks, they will never make the playoffs, we have no team. Now people are all over Freeman because of injuries... does anyone know what these players do for a living??? They cause wear and tear to their bodies every time they take the field. Should they even care to win if they don't even have fans who want them?

Maybe as fans if we try and lift their spirits instead of bash them they might feel that loved and feel like they belong. They didn't stand a chance coming into this team when they replaced every player we loved. They didn't choose to trade them and they didn't choose to be on this team. They have big shoes to fill and we must make them feel welcomed in our city.

Whether they are winning or losing we need to support them. We need to turn all this negativity into positivity. Let's not waste the last years at the Ted hating our own team. Find yourself new favorites with the guys we got.

Sitting at Turner Field with a 20-6 score isn't what a fan ever wants to see but I stayed until that final out. I was still Tomahawk Choppin' and cheering them on and I was happy to see a lady and her little boy behind me was doing the same. That is what we all need to do! When others are walking out early we need to stay and let them know we still are here for them.

Not every team is perfect and I know it's hard to support a team that isn't winning but look on the bright side we still have fan favorites Simmons & Freeman for now. We also have the newest fan favorite Jace Peterson! So let's keep our heads up and be there for the 2015 Atlanta Braves.

For those that can't, you might be better off finding yourself a new baseball team to cheer for! We need the fans that are in when things are going bad as well as good!

Let's attend more games or watch the game on t.v and like momma always said if you can't say nothing nice please don't say anything at all!

The Breakup..... All Good Things Must Come To An End

This is one of the hardest post I have had to write. Going through this breakup is hard to do.  It is getting use to the thought of you not being there early in the morning when I need you most, to pick me up and give me the energy I need to make it through the day. I have become accustomed to having you by my side day and night. I loved you more when you were cold than when you were hot but I loved all of you.

 I don't think I can make it through this cloudy morning without you. It has come to the point that my doctor seems to think we need to separate. It's no longer a healthy relationship. It's not just you, it's the onions, the garlic, the hot sauce and your brother caffeine.  

I can say I slept better last night than I have in a long time. But this morning it is pretty hard and I can't shake the sleepy feeling, just keeping my eyes open is a new task on my daily to do list.

Thanks for always being there!

To my readers who have had to cut coffee from your life, what have you replaced it with?
I am the type of person that drinks from morning to late afternoon. Besides water it is my drink of choice. I haven't notice how much it helps keep me going in the morning until these past two days without it.

 My doctor seems to think I could be having symptoms of acid reflux so he has given me a list of do not eat or drink. Coffee by far is the worst to get rid of.
I sure will miss my coffee!

Any suggestions? Please let me know.

Thanks for reading!

Eye Can See Clearly Now

As I blindily sit here waiting to see the eye doctor it reminds me of my first eye exam when I was 7.

My sister and I went together and wanted to pick our glasses. My parents let us choose too. I walked out with some thick lens with clear pink framed beauties (so I thought!) My sister, the same style but purple! We were too cool.

Those same glasses these days have obviously made a comeback. Where at a time when people wanted the thinnest frames, to now the thicker the better. Maybe we were the original trendsetters!

Back then it was an excited experience. Now it's reality. I can't even operate without the help of glasses or contacts. I can't see much but a blur without them.

I'm now waiting for Sam he's trying out contacts for the first time so he is in his class while I finish up this post. It sounds as if they are teaching a child to ride a bike. There's a lot of laugher and firm repeated instructions. It's pretty entertaining!

Thanks for reading!

They Say Distance Makes the Heart Grow Fonder.....

Sam and I on Crystal Pier Wrightville Beach, NC

Wow! I sure have been away for awhile..... Last post was in October 2013. I can say I have had a lot going on during that time. I let my blogging get away from me. I think it's finally time for my come back. I have really missed my blog. But I feel like we are those friends that no matter how long we go without seeing/talking each other we just pick up where we left off. I hope you all feel the same way!

Driftwood Beach Jekyll Island, GA 
 Since my departure Sam and I have bought 2 homes and a little cabin up in North GA near the mountains. We have moved about 45 minutes south of our previous home. It was a lot getting use to. I grew up and lived in the same county for 30 years. I've settled now and can say I am happy in the little town we live in.

Sam and the kids Jekyll Island

 The kids are growing like weeds (the weeds that I need to cut in the front yard) I'd say that's pretty darn fast! Gabe's a 4th Grader and Loganator has went through Pre-K and is now proudly in Kindergarten. School started back Monday so now Kait Kait and me have the house all to ourselves during the day! We read our books, paint our nails and attempt multiple hairstyles thanks to Pinterest for proving me a failure in the hair stylin' department!
The kids Cleveland, GA 

 We stay pretty busy the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014 we took a two week trip traveling to Cali and back. Just in 2015 alone we have took trips to Gatlinburg,TN, multiple trips to Helen, GA, Washington D.C to North Carolina's beautiful beaches and just came back Sunday from a last minute mini-vacation to our beloved Golden Isles (the Georgia Coast Barrier Islands) St. Simons and Jekyll Island.

 I have been doing great things the past year and a half. I even had a seasonal part time job hopefully I will be going back to! I will fill you in as we go along!
