hOOping again!!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, June 18, 2014


I survived the Holiday Trifecta!!! A big chunk of my job involves production details for holiday services, so the back to back of Easter, Mother's Day and Father's Day is a doozy. It's been a lot of fun, a lot of work and it took its toll on me. I was worn out from hauling 22 lb bags of ice, 400+ cans of pop and running down a myriad of details. I had to ice my knee for two days afterwards, but I'm feeling like myself again. Huzzah!


The IceBug Cometh! Some of the ice I had to haul around. And yes, I belted it in. The seatbelt warning thing dinged if I didn't.


Our Senior Pastor (my boss) rode an ATV in during our manly Father's Day service. heh heh


I got to ride it around in the parking lot. Looks adventurous, but it was more like "Driving Miss Daisy on an ATV."

One of the things I had to do to prep for the weekend, was clean out the garage at work. We needed space to store a bunch of chairs. It was a LOT of work!! Randy and I made a day of it and guess what we found? Remember last November, when I lost my FitBit while working on the Christmas set? Randy found it buried in the gravel! I don't know if it still works, because I gave my charger to a buddy a long time ago. But it was kinda cool that we found it.


Poor lil FitBit.

I also found the gorilla costume I'd been missing.

You never know when you might need one of these.

Here's a pic of me with one of the props for Father's Day. Yes, this is Randy's head. I walked around like this, yelling at the kids all day. They thought it was hilarious. Randy didn't find it as humorous.

Everyone needs a giant fathead of their spouse.

But I survived. So this afternoon, I tried hOOping again. (Disregard the dead swing, giant weeds, and dismantled trampoline in the background of the video. The swing's going out to the curb, I'll get around to the weeds, and we're saving the trampoline parts for an upcoming set. We're resourceful like that.) But yeah, I can hOOp again! And my knee even felt a little looser afterwards. Looks like Bubba is going to be another photobombing hOOpdog. Now I can focus more on losing this next 25 lb--hooray!

I will leave you with this pic of Randy, lounging in his new chair and Audrey stealing the hammock that she bought "for him."


And this painting Audrey did of Bubba, because I think she's brilliant.

Bubba, Portrait of a Snaggle-Toothed Wonder

Spark ON, Brave Sparkers!!

    Thanks for the hooping inspiration! I've bought one but still don't know why to use it very well and it got put aside. Now I want to try again. Gorillas, Bubbas, and Fatheads, your blogs have such range!

    Bubba the hoop dog!! He also seems to make a great foot stool for Randy. tee hee.

I haven't hooped in so long... just haven't been motivated to do so. I want to... but my do it muscle seems to be lazy.

You inspire me to greatness.... or maybe I should say you inspire me to awesomeness. emoticon

    You've still got it, Girl! So glad that you are back to hooping. I never did take it up, but you continue to inspire me. Maybe this summer...

You gotta love the spouse's fathead idea! I think it's hysterical that you did that -- and that he didn't think it was funny! You always make me laugh.

PS - And you are correct - Audrey is awesome!

  I like everything on your blog. I also hear a bird. Is this a pet, or just outdoors.

The pic looks like your dog. emoticon

Hey maybe you can see if your old Spark thing works, and you can get the attachment thing and either give it away, or have that person purchase the add on part.

Guess what? I ordered one today. I am so excited, because my pedometer doesn't work very well at all. It it worked sometimes, and other times not at all, or off.

I hope I can figure it all out. There are still some stuff on Spark, I never got toally.

For example, I usually am one here everyday, and the counter thing doesn't reflect that.

I also had to custom my exercise stats, because I didn't know how far or MPH, just the time. I hope this gadget helps some of this.

The other thing , is they change stuff a bunch.

But I do like they give more points for groups. This will make up for the long periods I didn't post my workouts.

I'm glad your on the move again.

I also appreciate that your work and church gives you the freedom to express yourself and the message in a variety of ways.

  Wish I could hoop like you. I think there's a knack to hooping which doesn't seem to work for me. Keeps falling down. Even as a kid it didn't seem to work for me. Any idea why?? emoticon

  I'm so glad that you are hooping again! Each time I went by the sports department at my store and saw the hoopla hoops, I thought of you! :-)
