I'm going to go back a day and say Happy 13th Birthday Zeph!  He had a good day and loved the surprise breakfast.  His gifts from us were all hits!   PF Changs was delicious and I'm pleased he picked there since I was disappointed about missing it for Mother's Day since he was sick.  Last night I let him stay up until midnight so he cold enjoy every last birthday minute.  We had cake on the deck in the dark-so nice for it to still be warm out. 

This morning Zeph and I are attending an informal session of a project based learning group I am interested in for him next year.  Most of the kids compete at National History Day (different from the History Bee). Hoping to find out the book list, schedule, and fees.  This afternoon Zeph has schoolwork.  Break dance class is tonight.  DH is going to take him since he hasn't seen the class yet and it is fun to watch . 

Saturday we are heading to my parents for cake and presents.  Zeph will probaly have some homework to do beforehand and I'd like to get the dogs out for a walk.  Sunday we may or may not go to Civil War Days-all weather dependent.

I am not going to let the events of this morning keep me in a crappy mood all day long, I am not, I am not, I am not... 

Long commute to work, University of Texas is having graduation ceremonies today, and apparently most of us here at work had no idea, so at least I wasn't the only one who was terribly late after sitting in traffic for 30 minutes to go a mile and a half.  Then I get into work and my boss lets me know that my old boss (not going to go into the whole issue), but is going to be hiring yet another new assistant shortly and they want my cubicle for their new assistant, because my cube is closer to their new offices.  Let's just forget that there is an open cubicle on the other side of my wall, literally 5 feet away...  So, I get my pick of the open cubicles that are available for me to move into in the next 2-3 weeks...  I'm just going to look at it as a minor inconvience, take the farthest/quietest cube away from everyone, put my head down, and do my work until I can finally give my 2 weeks notice in exactly 60 days. sigh. Frown

Hoping Emma has a good day today, she has been tired the past few mornings, DH hasn't been able to take her to school so I've had to take her to before school care at 6:30 and its not helping things.  She got in trouble 3 times and eventually sent to the office yesterday. Frown  And she can't remember why, so I need to email the teacher and find out.  I feel stupid even asking, but she has been acting normal at home, nothing is different. bigger sigh.

Jordyn leaves at noon today for Dallas for a 4 day training for her summer job.  She'll be back Monday afternoon.  Not thrilled with her missing school...  She's also picking up her senior pictures today so I can get graduation announcements addressed this weekend and out in the mail on Monday or Tuesday.   Tonight, no real plans, home to relax and into bed early hopefully.

Tomorrow, Emma starts swim lessons, so she'll go to class, Madison will go to the Y play place and I'll work out, then when the lesson is all over with, we'll all go in the pool for a bit.  DH is on call this weekend, so I don't expect to see him much.  I need to get to the Habitat store for a few things for the house as I start on small projects to get the house ready to put up for sale.  I have lots of cleaning and laundry to do.  Only 12 days til all the relatives get to town. 

And sunday, just grocery shopping and lots of outdoor time as the weather is supposed to be wonderful!  Emma has some work to finish up for her book report/project that she is presenting to her class on Tuesday.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Just logging in issues.  Worse this time then normal for me.  We are getting rain today.  The kids all got off to school okay.  Nothing going on today.  I am trying to get the girls birthday taken care of and we are already running out of money.  I am frustrated.  One more gift and we are done.  But I have to pay for cakes and the pizza.  Anyway, enough of that.  

This weekend is up in the air really.  Tim will mow at some point I am sure.  I am taking Matthew to the comic book store to pick up his newest volumn that just came out.  I am going to clean the family room and move my desk into it so my lap top will be on a desk and not flying around from lap to lap.

Dropped Z off.  I misunderstood and parents weren't staying.  I'm researching the list now.  It is defintely a  high school list.  When i pick Zeph up, we'll have lunch at Panerra (that's where the meeting is) and I'll hear his thoughts on the group.  I'm going to grade vocabalry and math and read a bit before I pick him up.
