Good morning ladies.  Back to work and school for everyone at our house!  Jordyn stayed overnight at her cat sitting job last night and won't be home til tomorrow evening.  DH got Emma up and off to school this morning as he reacclimates to being home and working after a 3 week time off.  I am adjusting to how things are at work at this moment, as it changes every day it seems like.  Should be a rather quiet day overall.  Steak is planned for dinner if DH is home.  I need to come up with some quick side dishes to go with it.  I need to get gas at lunch and walk over to the post office.

Have a great day!

Good morning! I'm doing some work around the house. DS is building his Sopwith Camel Lego set. In a bit we are off to his Tech class at the Miscrosoft store- 5 2 hour classes and they are free:) It is about an hour drive and at eats up most of our day, but I think it will be worthwhile. Once home, he has math, the rest of his Coursera class, a history test, and some reading before dinner. He and DH are off to see the original Night of the Living Dead on the big screen. While I like the horror genre most of the time- Zombies don't interest me, so I'm staying at home.

Okay, had to log in again three times before I could actually post a reply.  Our weekend was slow and quiet.  Tim and I decided to take Natalie off her meds.  Her grades did not improve last semester, they actually got worse.  Her behavour is actually better when she is not on them.  I think it's the hormones.  We need to call her doctor and let her know our decision.  

I am a bit shakey right now.  Our insurnace company made contact with the business where Natalie got hurt in 2011 finally.  I just saw a car drive by that looks like one of the owners cars.  Has me a bit shaking.  I had hoped they would not seek us out and take it out on us or the girls and I am starting to think we may have some trouble.  But, hopefully I am wrong.  They live nearby and we never talked to them about reimbursement due to all our girls going to school together.  We thought it would cause friction and problems for our girls and have chosen to let it be.  But, our insurance company wants payback.  I am hoping we get payback too in the long run but I have no idea if they will include the copays in thier reimbursement request.  

Today I have thoroughly mopped the floor in the kitchen.  I will be finishing up in there after the girls get home.  It's about time for me to leave.  I had tor un up and drop Matthews Ipod off cause he uses it for a class and had left it at home.  Pick up lunch cause I had a really good coupon.  Washed my hair and now I am about to run out the door.  Nothing tonight.  The girls need to decide about going to a dance this coming Friday night.  I wish they'd decide already.

Dinner will be roast, mashed potatoes and carots with rolls.

First day back for kids and I and my day has ended with a splitting headache. Looks like more changes in store for me at work as some of our kids are moving to different classrooms. Not sure how my days will work out. Tonight DS has a Boy Scout meeting, and think I will try to get the rest of the ornaments boxed up. I need to make a bracelet for DD's friends birthday. Dinner is spaghetti with Italian sausage, nut sure if I will do green beans or salad yet.

Hi all, checking in the morning after.   Yesterday was a pretty regular day at work. After work, dropped by my friend Linda's with a belated holiday gift and chatted a little.

Kids had school. Kayleigh had rehearsal after and then both kids had TAG, Kayleigh walked to the meeting (just up the street from the high school), dh and I took separate vehicles, dropped off Ian and left one of the cars for the kids to drive home.

Had a relaxing evening and turned in early

I hope they get everything figured out Chelle. I know its no consolation, but they should realize that its not you going after them, its the insurance company after their insurance company, its a business decision that happens all the time, and nothing more.

At this point I know it was them. I drove past their house to see if the car I saw was definitely theirs and it was. They live on a main street so no big deal to drive by. We don't, we live on an off shoot sort of street and a big fancy SUV like they have was so obvious. I don't know what they feel they will accomplish by doing stuff like that, but it shook me up. Maybe their goal? I hope they see it isn't our doing. I so want to real bad to go after all our co-pay money but just won't for my girls sake. Their daughter is already wishy-washy mean to Katie at times, Natalie is good to stick up with her sister but I get tired of this little chit. The nicest thing I can call her. She is the same girl who threatened Natalie on Facebook last school year and I turned her in cause it's school policy to do that via the internet. (It was something that started at school that carried over to FB.) We'll have to see how things progress.
