The Man I Always Knew He Could Be....

Hearing the alarm go off....

For some reason I have been having the hardest time sleeping. For the third day in a row I have listened to my husbands alarm clock go off... and I was already awake. No one really wants to be awake at 4:30 in the morning, well not normal ones anyway. My ankle seems to be fine, and other than a nice purple bruise there are no real lasting effects. Well maybe I am still a little embarassed that I twisted it in the first place but it doesn't keep me from walking, so all is good.
I am still loving both of my classes and because of the kindness of my human resources management teacher I am still doing well in them both. (Side Note: Pay closer attention to what assignment you are turning in).
Gabbi has been cheering her little heart out for the 8th grade football team. We have had some issues with grades and lack of turning in some homework... not just from her but from all of them. Whoever said that setting a good example would be motivating for the children obviously has never met mine. I haven't heard from Mat in several weeks and have a sneaking suspicion that this might have something to do with my lack of sleeping. I miss him and it makes me worry to not hear from him.
I still haven't figured out what we are going to do about the roof. I don't suppose that this is one of those things that will work itself out. Many prayers would be appreciated.
I guess that will be all for now. I love and miss you all.

The Good Stuff...

Danny is officially back on first shift and has been for an entire week. Gabbi had cheer practice today but I twisted my ankle and couldn't drive mom's car to go pick her up so the children enjoyed the last few warm days of summer and walked to go pick her up. I think that I will let them go and play at the park for a while. I need to go fix dinner and it will make it easier without them here. Mom is at grandma's, I really hope that grandma will see that she no longer needs that twin sized bed that she is storing and will let mom take it because Gabbi and Lex are tired of sleeping together in one twin sized bed. I really REALLY need it. So that is what has been going on here. Not really much....

There are several pros and cons to the children going back to school. School started here on August the 12th and so they are all fully back in the swing of things. This also means that today, being Thursday is the first day this week that none of my children are at home sick. I have been telling them to wash their hands every chance that they get and to try and be pro-active in fighting off illness.... why is it that this never works. Public schools are like these buildings full of germs... It is my hope that we will not have any more weeks like this for the entire rest of the school year. Unfortunatly we are only a month in and flu season is right around the corner. I wonder if I could talk them into wearing those silly face masks to school??!!??

My blog hates complaining posts...

I wrote a rant on technology not working correctly this morning... for my blog to totally screw up when I posted it. So I had to delete it.... ironic

Update.... again.

Well things here have been a little crazy, good crazy this time instead of bad. Well most of it good.... there was that little thing with Gabbi in the hospital but all is well with that now and hardly seems worth mentioning. I have completed my Algebra 2 class with a B, which is so much better than I ever dreamed that I would get, so WOOT WOOT for that. Danny is now back on first shift as of this morning!!! Life is better that way, we were actually holding hands shopping for index cards at 4:30 this afternoon. I have successfully started both my medical terminology class and my human resources mangement class, both look so fun after taking algebra. My brother and Bess, all of the girls (including Chelsea) came and visited. It was super great, all of my children were on their best behavior, and for that I am grateful. We had a great time although I didn't get the opportunity to do all of the things that I had planned. All of the ladies had their photos taken together in the dresses that I made. It would have been better if I had the opportunity to fit them first but it worked out fairly well. We all spent the night and then ate breakfast. Wil and his family left early Sunday and made it home safe and sound. It was kind of cramped in the truck though so I don't know how sane they were after the ride... or before the ride... anyway, off topic,lol. Here is a slideshow of the photos that we had taken. Thank you again to Wil and Bess for coming to visit, hopefully we will be able to do it again soon.
