Keep Putting One Flip-Flop In Front Of Another~~

My saying for the month of May..."keep putting one flip-flop in front of the other!"

The first two weeks of May have included finishing up my subsitute teaching duties for Coweta Public Schools, booking over 50 children in my private swimming lessons classes, getting all announcements out, and formulating a graduation celebration for my baby boy, Forrest's high school graduation, planning my daughter Skylar's beautiful, chic barn wedding, (which included making by hand most every decoration and centerpeice, and physically helping to clean and de-winterize my sister's ranch)continuing my duties as babysitter for my three precious grandchildren which are all under the age of 5, and last but not least, launching my book, Red Dirt Rocker!

Like I mantra for springtime, "one flip-flop in front of the other!!"  I cannot wait for our vacation in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado come the end of July.  Hot springs soaking and mindless staring at gorgeous mountain scenery is much needed for this mama/ga-ga/sub-teacher/swim instructor/party planner/author.

Keep on keepin' on all!



  1. you need a nice long vacay full of fun and rest..

  2. I just wanted to say I love your blog and I can't wait to share ideas this summer. I want to thank you again for the book and the signatures. I've noticed areas of the pages where they we're creased. Do you know why? I like it, it's got so much personality from the Lake, to the pencil mark's inside and more! I loved the book, it made me laugh, tear up and more. I talked to the kids after reading it and explained how close you are with your children. I bet it's a lot of work. I'd like some pointers =) Anyhow, I'll let you know when I'm finished with the review.

    God Bless

  3. My daughter gave you my PROOF copy by mistake!!!!!!!!!!! She put it in my purse at church!!!!!!!!!!!! That's the very first copy of my book that I edited with a pencil and sent the changes back to my editor!!!! Good grief! Jessica is here and when you said creased pages and pencil marks I asked her she still had my proof copy---she said, oh no mom...I put it back in your purse when we were sitting in church!! lol :) Please exchange it with me for a new one!! I am so sorry! But, you are being so precious about it!!!!! Ha-Ha... Love ya!!
