Morning.  Busy day here at work.  I cooked the kids breakfast this morning.  Today is there last full day of school.  They are taking some finals today and some tomorrow.  Everyone is going off to a group lunch to an Indian buffet but I don't do Indian food.  Plus I am leaving early from work so I am working through lunch.  I need to go talk to the Party place about the balloons I need and I need to run to the Mall about some t-shirts for the girls to be made to wear to the concert we are going to in Panama Cirty Beach next week.  They made some but they are disappointed with them plus the cat walked across Natalie's and left paw prints.  LOL  She has pink and orange paws.  Anyway, Tim and I are going to surprise them with custom made shirts from a place in the Mall.  I will also grab lunch in there somewhere.  After I get home I will starting the dishwasher since I didn't this morning.  Last night I cut my thumb pretty bad but not bad enough to go to the doc.  So it's hurts and I am in pain.  I will live and will put up with the painful healing process.  Someone here helped me with some numbing cream for pain.  I am better now.  After school Katie is suppose to ride the bus home with a friend and go home with her for a bit.  Not sure how long I will leave her there before I pick her up.

Dinner tonight, I forgot to figure it out this morning.  Just not sure.

Cheryl, you missed my b--- session last night.  I came home to finding Madison had turned the crock pot off, so no dinner, DH was gone the entire weekend working, Jordyn gone the entire weekend, and last night, the sink was overflowing with dishes!!  I am soo sick of people not having the common sense to see it and take the initiative to do something about except to wait for mom to do it.  Jordyn is in for a BIG wake up call at college, that kind of crap won't fly there...

Thanks about the picture, it really is an adorable picture.  Those two are so close and it warms my heart! LOL!!  I will definitely post graduation pictures, graduation is the 31st.  Emma's kindergarten graduation is this Friday.

Hey there!

Temp job ended last Thursday.  The college kid came home Saturday (dirty laundry and stuff that was in the itty bitty dorm room).  And it's been busy since so I'm not real sad that it ended.  And I probably have no more jobs now :( 

It's ok- we've kind of got a busy summer coming up.  I have to fly to TX in July to drive my mom's car back to SC.  I have an attitude about it- (I can't take a summer job- my sister and her husband are spoiled brats and my mom is to an extent too) and I really need to get over it (I'm trying- I truly am).  If I cop an attitude- not only would I tick my mom off- I'd tick my sister and BIL off, and I really want to continue to have a relationship with my 2 nieces. 

My inlaws put their farm of 40+ years up for sale.  I'm not 100% happy that they listed it through my nephew (he will get the commission if they sell- and then he'll have money to get married next year) but I think he will put their interest first.  They need to move.  It's a lot of work for them, my mil can't drive at night anymore etc, etc.  They've been down this path a couple of times before but this is the first time they've actually come up with a number and made a listing.  Last 2 times mil said that she couldn't find anything better than her house.  But I think they both realize that they are older- none of the kids/grandkids want it, and it would be in their best interest to let it go now, while land value is still good and they can make the decision. Rather than having to have it made for them. 

My other job this summer is going to be de-cluttering the house.  I have no idea how much stuff my mom is going to give me.  Mil is bringing 2 cedar chests with her next week- I have no idea where they are going to go.  SIGH.  But I don't want to tell her no, I think if some of the sentimental "stuff" they have finds a good home, she'll be more willing to let the farm go. 

Becca has 2 state tests over the next two days.  Algebra is today and it's the one she's most stressing over. 

Kristen put in a job application with the daycare through church.  One of the ladies at food pantry knows her, she helped her at VBS one year.  So she "talked her up" to the director on Monday.  I'm hoping that maybe they'll take her on.  She really needs a job. 

And I need to talk to the family.  The last 3 days I've had to clean up the mess in the kitchen by myself. And it is no fun waking up at 6:30am to come downstairs to the kitchen sink overflowing with dirty dishes, clean dishes on the counter.  That is the main reason I wish I still had a job.  It took a while, but we got into this groove where I wasn't the only one doing things around here.  It was kind of nice- but now that I'm not working again everyone's back to the "mom can do it" attitude.  SIGH. 

Tracy- your picture of Jordyn on facebook was just too sweet.  Are you going to post graduation pictures?

Good morning!  Just two more work days til my 4 day weekend!!  I have a lot on my to do list today, my "new" boss got moved into her office yesterday, ahead of schedule and I don't know if that means the facilities manager lady is going to make me move cubicles this week also, which I realy am not prepared for.  So I suppose I should do some proactive work cleaning out my cubicle just in case...  I have a few other projects I am also working on.  Errands at lunch time, tonight, lots of cleaning.  I spent all last night cleaning the living room in possible anticipation of redoing the floors this weekend, so tonight I'll be moving into the kitchen to clean and reorganize. 

I discovered when I got home last night that little Miss Madison had turned my crock pot off before we left yesterday morning, so my roast was not cooked....  I went ahead and cooked it overnight and put it in the fridge this morning for tonight's dinner.  I also pulled out a plate of it for lunch today for me.  Jordyn has to work tonight, and DH has been working late into the evening each night, so I don't expect to see either of them tonight much. Frown

Have a great one!!

Good morning.  Rainy day here and I'm feeling kind of rushed.   DH had to leave early for a client site.  I requested that he wake me up when he got up, but instead he woke me up right before he left.  I could have used that hour.

This morning (after working on laundry, the dishwasher and some school) we are off to try out a Science Olympiad event.  The local homeschool team is having a fundraiser, where you and compete in one event to get a feel for what Science Olympiad is all about.  Then it's home for lunch and the rest of school.  We're listening to Red Badge of Courage.   I remember reading it and disliking it and I'm not liking it this time around either.  This time I even have teacher notes!   Hoping to pick up a copy from the library tomorrow-there is lots of poetic imagery I'd like to be able to revisit and talk about and that is a challenge on audio.   

Hoping DH is home in time to drive to bowling tonight.  I'd like to stay home and work on ironing and more laundry.
