Where to begin?

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

It's been a horrible school year. I was relieved when it ended. So many things happened! Illnesses and accidents, one after another.

Then my headaches started. I still don't have the results of my scan. I still have headaches but they are not as debilitating as they were. I think it's some kind of allergy. As soon as I started allergy meds the headaches pretty much went away. But in the meantime, I felt awful and didn't exercise much other than to walk with a friend or my dog. It's not my usual workout and I have gained fat!

My youngest son had double pneumonia not too long ago. We all had a round of food poisoning on the last day of school. Talk about going out with a bang - or barf, really.

Our dog was attacked at the bus stop by a neighbors unleashed dog. We are still waiting or payment on that vet bill. (I fully expect to go to court over this one.) Poor scout is ok, but she is forever changed. The owners just watched as their dog ripped hair and tore at my dog. The only thing that stopped the fight was my oldest diving on the dog and holding it down. Amazingly brave and I still yelled at him for getting in the middle of that. My dog never fought back. She just tried to climb me. It was horrible. No apology or anything. The owners just stared the whole time and never collected their dog until I screamed at them to get their (&#&(#(*#(@ dog! Thank GOD it wasn't a child! There were six boys at the bus stop and that could have been one of them!

Hubs get furloughed in July til September. We will get a smaller paycheck thanks to the government not spending wisely. I guess that is our fault and we deserve to have our money taken away. ARGGGGGGG!!!!

I am holding on to the positives:

We adopted a dog, Bandit, about 2 mos ago. He is a Chihuahua terrier mix. He's old, been abused something horrible. The details are pretty awful. The good news is tho, he is living the life now. I will keep him happy and pain free til his last day. Scout loves him and mothers him. The cats think he is just a really ugly cat. He's much smaller than them.

The boys are going to a new school. I fought the good fight at the old school. I saw so many things that would shock anyone. I protested, yelled, wrote letters, emails, you name it. It's a sad situation. I got confirmation that they start the new school this fall. WOOHOO! Sometimes it's just meant to be. I pray the new school is better. If not, I will be homeschooling. YIKES!

Summer is here and I am going to sleep in, stay up late and play with the boys, soak it all in. Here's to living in my old cut off shorts and T-shirts!

No beach trip this year. We are going to DC. The boys are old enough to respect this trip and enjoy it.

I am tracking my food again. I have got to get back in the habit of that. I still feel like exercise is out of the question other than walks. I hope by the time the school year starts I will feel better and get back to my Turbo Jam. I really miss it.

The kids and I calling this our "Sci-fi summer". We watched This Island Earth yesterday! They loved it and so did I. Each summer break we have a theme. I am so excited about this one! We are watching science fiction and taking in museums and planetariums and anything science related! Woohoo!

    Sending hugs for all of you, furry and otherwise. I hope that battle with your neighbors isn't too bad. I hate it when people don't deal with their animals the right way.

    people like that dont need animals, they must make him mean to attack like that and just watch. I would die if that was my Buster...make sure you DON"T miss that court date and get them for everything and it would be nice if the court would place that dog in a different home.

    I'm glad to see you back - but sorry to hear that you've had such a rough go of it. It sounds like your summer is going to be awesome (except for the smaller paychecks part) and I know DC will be fantastic for the boys to see.

    Sounds like you have had a terrible year! Glad that summer is here for you and you can all relax. Sorry to hear about the dog attach -- how terrifying! Yeah for the adoption!! I'm sure he is living the good life now! He probably thinks he is already in heaven.

I hear more and more stories about school experiences. I have even considered keeping Max at home. Wish we lived closer. We could do it together!

I missed you! So glad to hear you are back. Hope the news is good about your scan. Will keep praying for you. Hug your boys and enjoy yourself!
