Jamaica at sunset

Watts Take Negril

It’s been almost a week since returning home from Jamaica and I’m still wishing I was back on the island.  From the beautiful views and relaxation to the adrenaline inducing activities and new experiences, everything was covered.  And that doesn’t even include the people.  People that genuinely seemed to live the ‘One Love’ philosophy and […]

Father’s Day Watts Words 

Happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s out there! While Mother’s Day is all about me finding some peace and quiet, getting waited on hand and foot, and doing as little as possible (and let’s face it, pretending to not be a Mom for a bit)  – Jason takes a different approach to Father’s Day. […]

Watts Words and 2008 Videos

With Jalyn gone this week, the dog days of summer creeping in, and the stream of consciousness that is Cole, I haven’t kept up with our Watts Words very well.   I did manage a few though.  Some of the gems spoken in the last week or so. Oooh – it’s Earth, Wind, and Fire! […]

OMG! We have a Teenager!

OMG! We have a Teenager! Well, it finally happened. Jalyn turned 13 and is now officially a teenager.  Kind of like with my own birthdays, (I always expected to wake up feeling significantly different) I thought with the magic of 13 JJ, would wake up a brand new sassy, bossy, know it all, stereotypical teenager.  […]

Watts Words – Summer is here.

What a week! In the past 7 days – we’ve had the last day of school/JJ’s last day of elementary school and Memorial Day.  Lots of joy with some nostalgia thrown in the mix.  Summer is here and with it we’ve already had wonderful times with family and down time as well.  Yay Summer! This […]

School is Out!

The craziness that is MAY is almost over, school is out, and baseball is down to 1 boy! Summer is here!!  I almost didn’t make it through May. I have never forgotten more or been late more than I have this May. So glad that it is almost over. Even though the last day of […]

Don’t Worry, I’ll Remember

I used to be so proud of my ability to remember things. Obnoxiously proud. “Oh you have to write stuff down to remember?? Not me, I’ve got it all in here (pointing to my head)”. I think I would shoot that me right about now. As with lots of people, the older I get, the […]

Watts Words of the Week IV

Happy Monday!    It’s time for Watts Words of the Week.  But first, a quick recap: This week held all sorts of excitement!  We had storms, STAAR, projects, and normal stuff.  The storm was the biggie, with the trampoline taking a trip to the neighbors.  That could have its own Watts Words of the Week.  Check […]

Flight of the Trampoline

Storms in Texas always have the potential to be severe. Sometimes the severe is exciting, while other times it is destructive. The storm experienced last night was a bit of both. The evening started normally enough. I made dinner, the boys finished chores, and we turned the Rangers game on. There had been a few […]

Watts Words of the Week III

Happy Tuesday! After a relaxing weekend of being pampered by my boys (Happy Mother’s Day), Monday hit harder than usual.  This week holds the normal business of every week – Scouts, baseball, etc – but also the STAAR test.  Jalyn has taken them enough by now to not get too worked up over them, but […]
