Luke Wade Curry

Today, at 3:29 p.m., Luke will be four years old.
Luke is so many things to me; much more than just my son.
He is...
My very own personal comedian (that just so happens to have the best smile that God has ever created-and for all you moms out there, yes, I may be bias)
My confidant
My friend
My hero...and super hero at times
My first-born
My thoughtful one
My hug and kiss after a bad day

I love you, Luke. I thank God every day for you. I pray for you; that you'll not only grow to be a wonderful man, but that you'll actively seek God's will for your life and completely love Him.
The place that you have in my heart is indescribable. The love that I have for you is unconditional.
Happy 4th birthday to my sweet, sweet boy.

Man That Works? Monday...but on Thursday...again

My friend, Makila, may be right. I hate to admit that, beings that she's been right 2 times within the last week. Anyways...I should probably just whip up a "Man That Works? Monday" post before Monday and then all I have to do is post it on Monday. I'm not a very forward-thinker...change is hard for me and anything that involves planning is a little off of my radar at this point in my life...a conservative at her finest.
Luke always brings home a magnitude of artwork from Sunday School and His Kids, not to mention work that we do here at home. I have tossed things away (and probably will continue to do so) but I stole an idea from another mom that I have absolutely taken to. I simply tape Luke's artwork to the inside of our cupboards in the kitchen. It is a hit! Every time we open cupboards, I get to see his creations and at the same time, it's not reeking havoc on my fridge, walls, etc. It's a win win!

How could I not?

The other day the kids and I were meandering through Pay.less. I was driving around waiting for a pair of glasses to get done when I saw that their BOGO sale was going on. First of all, how can you not stop?
I didn't find much for me, but found some church shoes for Luke and tennis shoes for Katelyn. While checking out, Katelyn came around the corner carrying this
At that very moment, childhood memories came rushing back. What little girl doesn't like Hel.lo Kit.ty? And, the best part about it was out of all the things she could've pulled off the wall, she pulled the purse. Ah, yes, a woman after my own heart.
Now, Hel.lo Kit.ty is a must have around the house.

Am I sucker or what?

This is What I know

*Warning: This blog may contain a little bit of TMI (too much information). So, for those of you whom do not want to hear about my failing body parts, I'd stop

I have had a hard time blogging lately (as you can tell). There really isn't a great reason other than the fact that I simply haven't felt up to it. Of course, there is a lot going on on an average day at the Curry household, but not anything so life-changing that I can't sit down and write a thought. So, today, I'm going to tell you about some of the things I do know...I tend to be wordy, so I will try to keep this short (laughs, snorts, etc).

* I know that I am beginning to HATE (wait, my mom always told me never to hate, so let's correct this) DESPISE winter. Could this be why I'm feeling unmotivated?

*I have cabbage in my bra. Yes, cabbage. It feels rather nice, quite actually, other than the fact that I smell like a

The reason I have cabbage in my bra is because I'm trying to wean Katelyn to only one feeding.

*My left bo.ob was gianormous on Monday night. I can imagine that it is how you'd feel if you were to get implants or if someone had pumped your breast full of air.

*I got a clogged duct because I was engorged. Should have thought about the cabbage earlier.

*The next natural line is to put why cabbage works for engorgement, but this is something I do NOT know.

*Katelyn has an ear infection...again.

*I haven't showered since yesterday morning. Ewww.

*The "bachelor" is a very dumb person.

*I am too old to try out for Amer.ican Id.ol. Thank goodness because I'd get laughed off the stage.

*Tyl.enol only works for 4 hours, not 6 like the bottle says.

*I just heard the dryer buzz and I'm tempted to go start it up again so I can put off folding clothes for another 30 minutes.

*I'm giving up fatty fast food for lent (not Catholic, just like the idea of giving something up to practice self-control and remembrance of Christ's work on the cross).

*I need to go now so I can get in the shower (I'm sure Bill will be elated).
