Talk About Being Passionate in Basketball!

Today was Michael's 2nd basketball game, they had no practice this week...just what ever the kids did with their parents at home.
Michael did get a free throw and got one of the two in! The second bounce off the rim and his team mate put it in the hoop (would have been a 2 pointer but the lady keeping score - something was wrong with her)
Well all the parents were trying to tell the old lady that 1. she had given the 2 points to the WRONG side and 2. that it was to be 3 points not 2 because only 1 went in should have counted as a free throw. The other should have been a 2 pointer.
Well Since all the parents were hackeling the score keeper to change the score to what if should be, the ref, called in 'coach Mike' telling him to handle his crowd.
I guess that heated up 'coach Mike' because he argued the score LOL
It is a CHILD'S game and I dont think the score matters - it isnt like they will go to regionals or the next level or anythhing. The score is more or less just because it is part of the game and no one really CARES who wins or looses, especially at this age, they are in FIRST grade for crying out loud.
Needless to say 'Coach Mike' got the team of FIRST graders a technical!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How in the world?

Yeah I have no clue. The parents who were complaining the score was wrong, saw Mike's reaction to get the score corrected started to think Mike was a nut case.
They do like he is passionate but it is JUST a kids game after all.

Mike did own up to his blow up after the game in the car on the way out.

But all in all the score was tied but really the Bears should have won by one point ;)

But who's keeping score anyway LOL

Game Day!

Michael had his first basketball game :) Needless to say they lost, but it was still the first game they had played with only 2 practices. Michael had a nice time, and I really feel he is getting to like this basketball thing. Although he isnt as aggressive as he could be. We will need to work on that, but then again it has only been 2 practices, he will slowly learn and that is what this is about, learning basketball.

Yes today was absolutly a sleeping day. I picked Michael up from school and he was in rare form, which indicated he needed SLEEP. Of course I took him home, fed him, and he promptly laid down and passed out. I followed suit. Needless to say we BOTH woke up at 8:00! Was able to catch the last hour of American Idol which was funny...and now here we are 9:13pm and needing to go back to sleep. Michael has informed me he is WIDE awake and can not go back to sleep and wanted to know why I didnt wake him up earlier...ughh cause mommy was sleeping to, Daddy should have thought in his mind to wake us but I guess he was hoping we would both sleep right through until morning...NOT! Hopefully he will be able to get to sleep again.

What Cha Do This Weekend?

What did you do this weekend? I will tell you what I did, NOTHING! That's right I did nothing all weekend long, I slept, but I had been sick all week, since I got back from VA. When I say all week, I mean ALL week! This weekend was my REST weekend, although I did get some laundry done, which was great because I had a lot, and Saturday I did fix my family some breakfeast but promptly went to sleep there after :) Sunday I watched Cold Mountain - a 3 hour long movie ON T.V. and then Pride and Prejudice, both GREAT movies I had NEVER seen before Sunday! WHY!!!!!! I have no idea because I loved them both :)
I want to attempt to see Benjamin Button, maybe I will get that done this week at some point.
Tonight Michael has Basketball practice, which should be 1 hour of ammusement tonight :) I will prepare my camera battery and make sure it is charged so I can get some decent pictures and videos.

Basketball Practice Begins

Monday Michael had his first basketball practice, his first game will be on January 17th. At first he was a bit unsure, because he never played really ever before. He kept saying he didnt know what to do...but once the other kids showed up and of course Daddy is coaching! Practice is 1 hour every monday. One of the other mothers asked if there was a team mother, which I never really thought of, but seeing as Mike is the coach and I am Michael's mom I told her I would call or email her to make arrangements. She seems really nice.
The next morning before we left to go to work and school...Michael told me, "I like basketball, I want to play every day!"
Which I am so super glad because I wanted him to like some sort of sport and if it is basketball so be it!
***I think we found a Sport!!!!!!!!!!*************

Here are some HORRIABLE pics, they are from my phone's camera which isnt good at all for taking great pics.

Missing my Granny (Gladys Virginia Kearns)

The last few days I have been in Virginia, my granny passed away December 30th. Reasons...unsure of to me, but I pray that my family will find out for sure really soon.
Gladys Virginia Kearns was my granny, my son's great granny, my mom's mother...a friend, someone I looked up to, someone who I cared about what she thought and worried what she would think. I didnt want to disappoint her in anyway, and I tried not to, and I know I may have from time to time, but I think she just always wanted to know I was okay, happy and safe.
I called her often but not as much as I should have. If I would have known she was going to pass away, I would have made a way back home to Virginia, but I just keep telling myself - no she will be home soon, she is okay, they will make her better. If I would have known, I would have called her, but momma said they moved her to intensive care and I couldnt call her there.
I planned on coming up in the spring, when the weather was warm so we could sit in the yard, near her little pond she made, and Michael could run around the yard.
I will still plan that trip, I know she wont be there in person with me, but she will be there. I need to be with my granddaddy.
I sure wish we lived near by, Michael has school to finish up here, I have work, but if I could be with my granddaddy I would be there every single day. I have been calling him 3-4 times a day since we have returned from Virginia, I keep thinking I am going to get on his nerves calling so much. I told him, but he said no, the more phone calls he gets the better.
Mom let me take a blanket my granny sewed and I have been sleeping with it. But now I dont want to wear it out, but it smells like her house, and it makes me feel closer to her. 28 with a blankie, but hey I dont care.
I talk to her, I know she is around I can feel her. It is just weird, I keep thinking this is a dream, keep getting an urge to call her house and hear her voice on the other line. But this isnt a dream and I am not going to wake up anytime soon.
All the time when I was staying with my granddaddy I could hear her, and what she would say. I tried to say it but no one listened...I kept saying Granny would have a fit is she saw that, or Granny doesnt like it when you do this, or that.
I do know one thing though...I will never forget my granny, I will always love her, and I will make sure my granddaddy is okay, call him often, visit as much as I can no matter what. Tell everyone I love, that I love them every chance I get.

My gaurdian angel is my granny. I will not say R.I.P. because I do not believe she is resting, she is in heaven with her dad and sister (great granddaddy Seymour and Aunt Jeannie) and they are happy, pain free, looking down on us.

My Uncle Benny has put up a site for her ( , which I have taken this from;
