A Deer Mishap and Other Things

Well I think my mourning period is over. The world series has begun and my beloved Astros are not playing. And to be honest I haven't watched either game. R1 has watched and I've listened and he is cheering for the Mets and me well I'm not cheering for either team. 

Things have been kind of crazy busy around here. We've had baseball or lessons. We've had homework, all of us. Mountains of homework. And I'm half way through the semester and I'm still not feeling it. I'm dreading the Spring semester and it doesn't start for two and half more months. 

We had homecoming and all of the events prior to. Dress up days at school where I failed to take pictures of my boys each morning. However this week has been red ribbon week and I thought I would redeem myself but alas, mom fail. Until Tuesday where I remembered to take a picture of R2 dressed in orange for "orange you glad you do not do drugs" day. But Monday and Wednesday went with no picture. We will see how tomorrow goes. 

The biggest news is not the best news. I hit a deer last Monday on my way home from a school board meeting. Yep my car that was only a year and a half old does not look to good. There are several things I am thankful for. 1. R1 was not driving. I picked him up at a friends after the meeting and asked if he wanted to drive and he said he was to tired, so I drove home. 2. I only hit the deer going about 40mph so the air bags did not deploy. I was also driving the speed limit which is 65. I usually go faster than that so as soon as I saw the deer pop up from the ditch on the other side of the road and begin to move across traffic I slammed on my brakes. 3. On the two lane highway where I hit the deer there were no cars behind me and no cars coming toward me in the other lane. This is a very busy highway and for this to happen was and depending on how you look at it, it was a small or huge miracle. 4. The insurance company said since this is a no fault accident it is covered under my comprehensive coverage so the deductible is half of what the collision deductible is. And 5. I only did about $3,500 damage to my car. The bumper, grill, hood, and fenders will all need to be replaced. And the insurance adjuster said the deer's antler pierced the A/C condenser so that will be replaced as well. Ahhh the joys of living in a small town during hunting season. So hopefully by the end of this week I will have my car back. Oh and the deer, well he rolled into the ditch and then got up and ran off. I'm sure he went into the woods to die and if I would have been thinking clearly I would have called a friend to go track him for me but I was just excited that R1 and I were OK. 

So other than the amount of rainfall we received from Hurricane Patricia this past Saturday/Sunday nothing really exciting has been going. Unless you count the fact that I didn't even get deer meat after the accident. 

Peace out y'all!

Homecoming 2015

This past weekend was homecoming so the weekend was filled with a flurry of things we needed to do.

I like homecoming. I enjoying seeing all the kids dressed up. The boys always look handsome and the girls are always beautiful. 

R1 and his date were stunning! (but I'm a little partial to them) 

Here you can see for yourself. Stunning!

I know I haven't blogged about the Astros loss on Monday but honestly I was so frustrated with it I had no words. 

How do you blow a 4 run lead to lose 9-6. I totally blame A J Hinch and Will Harris. Hinch should have pulled him after he gave up two hits. And Harris needs to learn how to become a better relief pitcher to keep us in the game.  

I know it seems harsh but when you are in a playoff situation and you are up and then your relief pitchers come in an blow that lead, well you can't win a game. 

This is how I felt Monday night. 

And since I am a true blue Astros fan I can say this...It's game day boys. It's do this or go home.

Astros Win Another

Y'all will have to excuse me, my beloved Astros are still in the play offs and I'm sure that my blog will consist of nothing but their activity. The Astros beat the Royals 4-2 yesterday and we are now up 2-1 in the series. Have I mentioned love baseball in October!

Post Season Excitement

The Day Hell Froze Over

So over the past few years I've become more of football fan. It really all started when R1 began playing football in junior high school. 

My favorite NFL team is the Houston Texans. I know they are no Oilers but they are still my team. And since I cheer for the Texans you know what this means, I can not stand the Cowboys. The hatred dislike for the Dallas Cowboys really began when Hubs and I started dating. His entire life he has never liked the Cowboys and since I married him by default I do not like them either. 

So when R1 came home from school last week and said he was asking a girl to homecoming and she liked the Cowboys I knew we were in trouble. 

A big thing right now is how the boy asks the girl to homecoming or prom. The proposal is a huge deal. So with this in mind Hubs and R1 went work trying to come up with something Cowboys related. And since it was Cowboys related this meant I was going to have to step foot in the Dallas Cowboys Store and purchase a few things. So Saturday R1 and I went to the store and made a purchase. 

As I walked out the door I shuddered. I could not believe I walked in, found a few things,  and paid for that junk with my hard earned money. Hell must have frozen over. And all in the name of homecoming. 

Here is the finished product...

We're Going To The Post Season

We're going to the post season! 

I get to cheer for my favorite MLB team a bit longer. The locker room celebration was awesome. Poor Julia Morales was covered from head to toe. Even her Twitter post said she smelled awful. 

But I'm a happy girl. Way to go Astros!
