Hello everyone. Yikes, it's getting dark already.

It was a stressful day at work, with our difficult student but the rest of the glass was great especially considering they had all of last week off.

On the way home, I got a Traction Service light, I have to bring the car in tomorrow, it'll cost $105 just to look at it, never mind fixing it. Uggghhhh.

Kayleigh had a regular school day, didn't stay late for anything. Ian had a regular school day, and both kids have a TAG meeting tonight. They'll have to bring Dh's vehicle.

We are having tortellini and vodka sauce and salad.  I'll watch DWTS tonight and maybe order a couple of gifts online.

Yeah Heather it was.  In the car that we've only got 4 more payments on :( And I felt bad, the kid who backed into me was only 22 and it was his first accident AND he was driving his mom's car with his mom in it :(  They were really nice about it- and GECIO has been really good at getting things done.  Took much shorter to drop off the car than I thought it would. 

The funniest thing that happened- was with Becca and her friend.  The girls wanted coffee at 7-11.  The parking lot there is a mess- Becca wanted to drive and I told her no- she's not dealing with that parking lot.Which is a good thing.  I don't think it would have been as much damage (big SUV backing into a little Ford Focus) with the van, but I don't know if it would have freaked Becca out to the point where she wouldn't want to take her on-the-road test this week. 

  There were 2 police officers getting coffee.  I was finishing up with the mom- the female officer asked the girls if they wanted a ride over to church (you can see it from the 7-11).  They said yeah.  Becca's friend said "I hope this is the last time I ever have to be in the back of one of these cars".  They get out of the police car in front of church- the pastor said nothing to them LOL.  LIke it's a common occurance that they get out of a cop car LOL.  People inside the church were wondering- and had a good laugh afterwards.

I was up bright and early, but decided to go back to bed for 2 more hours.  Now my brain and body are both awake.  Some housework and school this morning.  After lunch I'm hosting game club-five tween boys to play Star Wars Monopoly.  I've got the Star Wars cd ready to go.  After I clean the bathroom and shower, I'm making gluten dairy free pumkin chocolate chip bread.  Not sure is all the kids will eat it, so I've also got cider and fresh apples too .

Tonight Zeph starts his volleyball class.   We need to stop at the library on the way and then pick up a friend who is also in the class.   Dinner is minestone soup, rolls, and fresh pears.  Breakfast was oatmeal, plain yogurt and blueberries.  No idea on lunch-hoping I have something easy hiding in the freezer.  No eating out this week!

Sounds like an accident (I'm not on facebook). Hope everyone is okay.

Hey guys- it's Cheryl.  I changed my screenname a couple of days ago.  Saturday Cox came out and changed our ISP, so our landline is going to dissapear, and with it the verizon acct I've had for years.  So instead of trying to figure out how to change email addy's on IV- I just went ahead and changed everything.  Much simpter. 

Getting the car looked at this morning.   Long story- check my FB page, I put a picture of what happened to the car (that isn't paid off yet) yesterday.  SIGH.  No clue about a rental- they said something about not paying gas/ mileage.  I'm cool with the gas thing, not sure about mileage, and we do have another car that Becca can't drive by herself yet anyways. 

And my oldest called me this morning- she said she has a "crush".  Who she doesn't know if he likes her.  They talked for an hour yesterday- told her that I kind of thinks he likes her- what guy would spend an hour talking to some random girl?  Also told her to keep focused, her grades this semester are quite good AND she's got goals she wants to hit before getting married. He's a sophomore, same major as her and the family's in MD.

Good morning ladies.  Quiet day here as far as I know.  Got both little ones up and to school this morning, roast in the crock pot and that's about it.  I have a few errands to run at lunch time, and a chiropractor appt. after work.  Tonight I have a bit of laundry to finish up and some paperwork to do.

Have a great day!
