Dorothy~Is the rain you are getting caused by the storms happening south of you? I am ready for rainy fall days....

I kept busy today. Groceries, started on my cleaning list, finished up a couple loose ends from yesterday's paid work and then started on the actual numbers for August's budget. It gave me a headache, so I stopped part way through and then chose to hang out with Maegann in the living room. After supper both kids disappeared to their rooms so I've been watching Sugar Rush and now Criminal Minds while Sparking.

I would have slept very well last night, but Ellsworth had other ideas. He got up and was pacing around to get outside every two hours. Tonight I'm giving him a Benadryl so he'll sleep. LOL

Tomorrow I am considering just sleeping in and watching church online with the kids in the afternoon. Isaac wants to go to College Naz if he is feeling better (he's started coughing tonight) and it is Maegann's day to sleep in.

Janet - so much going on at your house. Its too bad you all could not have gone to Colorado - its been a while since you have all been away as a family.

I need to work on finances this weekend as well - it is suppose to rain Sunday night into Monday so maybe Monday.

I did not get to paint last night as I mowed so that is what I will be doing today.

I am going to work on painting today and as I paint trim on the windows I want to clean them as well. So I may as well as wash the curtains too! I like that plan. I may take a ride this afternoon after I get burned out from painting,.

My guests at the cabin left early because of the storm hitting the coast - I think they were from Florida. So I will need to get to the cabin - maybe tomorrow.

Did you get to the painting Dorothy?

I spent my entire day getting paid work caught up. Tomorrow I will tackle the family budget and first of the month bills. Since we just transferred the accounts I am juggling two different sets of accounts to make sure I didn't miss something that comes through each month. I got the accounts balanced Tuesday before everything broke loose so at least that's a good start.

I believe Isaac has a cold as he's been sleeping/resting all day. I told him to stay away from me as I don't want to get sick although I'm probably already at risk so have the OnGuard and other essential oils for cold Bombs going. His "sentence" from school is officially over and thankfully with the holiday weekend there wouldn't have been much work missed as far as homework.

Maegann had a good day at school and just headed to bed as her Saturday begins earlier than the rest of the week.

Tim left for Colorado about 1 this afternoon. We all wanted to go, but with the kids' schedules, it just didn't work once again. I'm glad he can go spend the time with his family at their reunion. He enjoys it more than any of us do anyway!

Janet - good grief - I do not who I feel more sorry for any more - teachers or students. Such a thin line they all have to walk on.

Cabin is cleaned - although I did not mow. For some reason I was just struggling yesterday and I know it had to do with allergies - I am just not sure what was triggering it. But I did go vacuum out my van because I have a hunch that all the dog har in there for my daughters bull dog was part of the problem. I am thinking part of it is that our other cat is over here with me now because he does not like the bulldog - and he lays on the furniture - so more cat hair to deal with as well. I ran the sweeper over here last night and the canister is just full of cat hair - gah!!

I really want to paint tonight but will have to get the neighbors lawns mowed first - I will see how I feel after that - the painting may have to wait until tomorrow.

Dorothy-Nice hearing someone got things done around the house!

Tonight's blog has most of the story about the emergency IEP meeting I requested. For now, too tired to repeat everything, but it went very well.

For detail not in my blog... the meeting was attended by the Principal, VP, SPED Case Manager, School Psychologist, School Social Worker, Team Sports coach, myself, Isaac and Meg. Good group on such short notice. Maybe the fact that we were checking with an attorney was helpful. emoticon The Principal was able to more clearly define what was on the video and the suspension stands based on the need to protect staff and for the student to hopefully learn from the consequences. He also shared that a non SPED student would have received five days, but they felt that was excessive for Isaac. At that point my win would come from keeping Isaac in the sports class and it happened. Psychologist was very helpful there as she will be doing a Behavioral assessment (he has been needing one and is on a waiting list) and stated her evaluation would not be accurate to the situation if he was removed from that class.

For the rest of the outcome regarding help when anxiety or frustration happens, head to my blog!

After midnight now... sleep well...

Janet

emoticon Janet - I am so sorry - I will check out your blog.

I had an appointment yesterday right after work - when I finally got home I got the mowing done on our two lawns,. Will try to get the neighbors tomorrow. Today I have to head to the cabin to clean and mow.. I am looking forward to a 3 day weekend.

Janet - I know I can comment on it but I will have to look and see if I can make it invisible. I like it!

Glad to hear that the party was a success and that Isaac was totally surprised.

It was a dreary, misty, and wet day yesterday so I opted not to golf and instead I painted the ceiling on the front porch - looks so much better already.

Dorothy~That would be so hard to hold ones tongue when you know it is not truth. Do you have a renters review option? I know the place I stayed in Sun Valley had a reverse review ability.

The party was fun last night and it was great that Isaac was totally surprised. Today was a quiet day. Errand to Costco for Tim and then paid work and laundry checked off the to-do list. Tomorrow I can tackle the other 2-3 items on that list and get them done easily!

Janet - sounds like the perfect day to me - enjoy!

I got the back porch floor painted last night as well as the steps - looks so nice so now I am moving to the front porch - I am hoping to get a 2nd coat of paint on everything.

The flea customers decided to give me a bad review - it is so hard not to respond - but my girls are always telling me when you have 10 good reviews and one bad one to ignore the bad one - it is hard.

Dorothy~Glad it was a good day.

Got a few things done around the house and answered work emails, but I'm taking the day off so I can just hang out with Maegann. Will go pick up the cake about 1 and then I have a client phone call at 3:30. Tayler will be coming over about 4:30 to do some gaming with Isaac and then we'll all head out to pick up Nate about 6 for supper at Applebee's.

t was a beautiful day for a family day and I think everyone had a good day. My grandchildren are all growing so fast. And love to spend time with my kids. I think my mom enjoyed her day as well.

Hoping to get to work a bit early today as I am covering for thee girl I work with and I have to get caught up.

Janet - hope Isaac has fun on his birthday celebration. That is what we typically get for Michael's birthday is an ice cream cake.

Dorothy~Have fun in Erie for the birthday!

We are celebrating Isaac's birthday tomorrow night. I will pick up the cake in the afternoon (ice cream cake from DQ) and then Nate and Tayler are both joining us for dinner. Will be fun and hopefully we can all keep it a surprise.

Thankfully no virus on the computer. The folders I deleted through "regedit" seem to have done the trick. It seems whatever was happening was tied to File Explorer. Just thankful it is working again.

I have tried the muscle relaxant that the doc prescribed for me and today I was so sleepy after church. I laid down about 9:45 and the next thing I knew it was 12:15pm Still feeling a little tired, but fighting through it. The relaxants have helped with the muscle soreness so I can pinpoint better where the arthritis pain is located in the knee.

After lunch I checked email and then went onto all the different school programs to clean them out from last year and to see what was there for this year. Isaac does not keep the email in OneNotes organized either so I need to do this every day. Still one site not working and I'm sure that's due to the cyber-attack that hit the school district last week.

Now I'm Sparking and waiting on everyone to be ready to watch the sermon.

Janet - those virus can be awful - why do people make them?? My computer and a lot of there peoples at work have been just awful and they pretty much have us very limited to what we can do on our computers now.

Golf was fun - it really took up most of my day - but I did manage to get some painting done - my back porch is really looking nice and I am getting ansy to move out front.

Today I have to clean the cabin and then my mom and I are heading to Erie for a family day - we are all going to my daughter Becky's to celebrate all of the birthdays at once - lol!

I think you are right that a golf outing was a good idea even with everything else you have going. I hope it was fun!

I had a few quick things to do on my desktop and barely got them done before it just kept locking up on me. I know it had something to do with Windows, but took too many hours to try and get some things backed up (work mostly) and then I found a video online showing me two folders to delete to fix File Explorer and that did help a lot. Finally able to run a full scan to see if there is some virus lurking. So, other than that I did a load of laundry and cleaned the kitchen.

Janet - that sounds like fun for Maegann.

I agree - it sounds like those renters were trying to pull a fast one.

Probably a smart move for Isaac,


I myself am in a golf outing this morning so I must get moving. I am kind of mad I signed up for it as I have so much to do but on the other hand - it will be good for me to relax. I cleaned the cabin yesterday - more people coming and going, mowed and did a bit of shopping. Hopefully I will get to paint after the golf outing today.

Dorothy~You didn't have a problem before or after those renters with the fleas! Good for you holding firm.

Isaac chose not to investigate cross-country after all and honestly I feel that's a good choice as he's already so tired with all the other activities he has going on and we haven't even added in homework.

Maegann had another good day and is planning her participation in a contest at the school. One day is makeup and another is hairstyle. She's got her makeup design chosen and now just needs the model.

No big plans around here for the weekend...just the usual.

Janet = it is good he is busy - Tim that is. Isaac as well. It is good that he loves sports. And nice that the school does veterans hair cuts for free. Glad you enjoyed your massage.

I did take off a couple of hours yesterday and got the back porch ceiling done and some of the trim - it is looking better already. I wanted to keep painting but I start getting sloppy after a while so I mowed the neighbors lawns instead - they all needed it. Today I will leave early as well as I need to clean the cabin - people leaving today and more people coming. I also heard from the people with flea problem - told me there house and dog was infested since they have been to the cabin - I told them they must have brought them as I have not had a problem since they left and it has been booked solid.

I really just think I was on let-down from all the stress of getting Isaac off to school and knowing Tim would be gone for it all. Today feels more stable, but I still got plenty of rest thanks to a 90 minute massage.

Both kids are having a good week at school. How pleasant is that?! Isaac is talking about looking into cross-country running, but we'll have to see how it would all fit in with youth group, basketball league and therapies. Busy boy! Maegann did a veterans hair today and the school does them for free as a way to say thank you. She isn't a barber, but she learned a lot about barbering with his cut.

Tim may have to go back to Reno on Tuesday for two weeks or so depending on the firm they are giving an ultimatum to regarding their work. He doubts they will be able to do what is needed and may not even want to so he's getting plans ready for taking a team of two with him to get it all done. I assured him I would be fine as both kids are out of the house so much right now that I'd have time to rest and handle what comes.

Khol - sounds like you have things all figured out. Hope your daughters allergies are better today.

I always pop popcorn on the stove and I just use a regular pan with oil and shake it. So much better than microwave and much healthier. I usually use coconut oil.

Janet - if I took naps I would not be able to sleep at night. As it was I woke up an hour early this morning and could not get back to sleep. Does not mean I am not always tired - because I am - lol!

Hope school is going well for both kids. And that Tim made it home safely.

Ran to Aldis last night after work and then I came home and cleaned off both porches and sprayed them down real good. Now I am really ready to get painting. I was thinking of taking a couple of hours off today to see how much I could get done. But they are calling for rain. If it is not raining I may do it.

Dorothy~Sorry your golf partner was injured so you couldn't play.

Kohl~That's a great plan with the laptops. I've had my Dell for 10+ years and it's just now having some screen glitches. Hopefully it won't crash on me until we have some funds to replace it. How did Chemistry go today? Thanks for the reminder that our Stir Crazy needs to go on the replace list. We've used those forever and have probably replaced it 4-5 times in 30+ years.

Still tired today, but I know getting to sleep at 2:30am didn't help matters. I did go ahead and sleep for a couple of hours once the kids were gone, but now I'm fighting heavy eyelids at 3:30pm. Need to tough it out so I sleep tonight OR just take a quick power nap for 15 minutes. I haven't been very productive and I had such a good "want to do" list made for this week. Oh well.

Tim had a very long day yesterday at the Reno office and this morning he was heading out early to do more. Said they would be firing the current integration firm today which means he'll be making more trips to Reno for the next month or so. He said he's never seen such horrible work before and he's seen a lot! He was still on schedule to make his flight home tonight though so that is good.

Janet - The girls played nerf gun games with other homeschoolers yesterday. D15 had severe allergies yesterday so she ended up not swimming as she was really out of it after taking allergy medicine. She only sort of looked at her syllabus for chem co-op yesterday so today is catch up already...Argh!

Dorothy - Hope your friend heals quickly.

My husband ended up giving me the new Mac Aire he bought for a great price from a guy who won it at a golf outing. The thinking was that D20 will be given my laptop which is 7 years old now which was given to me by my son two years ago when he bought a new one. The old one is a bit heavier but can do more and since she is creative it suits her needs. She also can be more carefree in how she tosses her book bag around knowing it’s not brand new. The new one will be used for homeschooling by the younger girls (Khan Academy, writing papers, ....) but mainly be for my personal use. I may hand it down to D15 in a few years when she goes to college.

Got out the Stir Crazy popcorn popper from my husband’s dad’s old house last night. Everyone loved how it tasted in comparison to the microwaved bags we usually eat.

This morning will be spent making medical related phone calls, writing out a few bills, and monitoring chemistry understanding.

It’s looking like a dreary day so I’ll have to work really hard to keep my inner sunshine level up today.

No golf for me - my partner fell and hurt her arm. So I mowed and cleaned at the cabin. Raining here today and I think it is going to be an all day rain.

Janet - I have so much that needs touching up as well - one step at a time and I will see what I get done this year - I am not worried about the the upper half this year but hopefully I can get the lower half done.

Dorothy~We have so many places that still need paint such as window sills. Enjoy golf tonight!

I've been so tired today and I'm sure it is just the down time from a summer of "never alone". Thankfully there isn't anything I have to do today so will just see where the day goes.

Janet - I will be thinking of you tonight - I hope it goes well. I am glad his first day of school went well.

Khol - I have red ones too. Just love them. The ones I got my mom are a pink strip - should be pretty.

Hard to believe school is starting back up again.

Started painting the trim on the back porch last night - my back door has been making me crazy so now it looks so much better. Tonight I golf but first I will have to clean the cabin.

Kohl~Did you get started today with homeschool? I think you'd enjoy Scotland Yard.

Dorothy~Hope you had a good day.

Day One back to school went smoothly and that is a huge praise! I was able to get laundry and the last piece of the financial need surrounding the debt consolidation finished up. Tonight I chose to hang out with Isaac and worked on my puzzle. Tomorrow I'll have the house to myself until about 3 and have no clue what is on the agenda other than attending his basketball practice with him from 6-8. Mandatory for parents and players for the first night.

Had a great day at the beach yesterday despite my mood. Now we are gearing up for a new year of homeschooling. D15 is starting on the chemistry readings and questions tomorrow. We need to tackle an earlier bedtime this week, too.

Janet - I hope Issac does well in school today.

I love the fall weather as well but we can niot always depend on it here - you never know what is going to happen.

Yesterday I was able to get my house cleaned, the cabin cleaned, and finish trimming the hedges. Also got a plant planted for my mom. I bought her a hardy hibiscus at the farmers market. Hers had died a couple of years ago.

It's almost 11 pm after a great Sunday. Only blip was Isaac beginning to get anxious about returning to school tomorrow. I've got him as prepared as I can and promised him a big breakfast of eggs and sausage to get his stomach filled and ready to go.

Tim got off on his work trip and Maegann, Tayler and I played Scotland Yard. It made for a fun evening.

I like to do outdoor work in cooler temps so I love the closing down time of Fall. LOL

Worked on my foundation yesterday, got some plants planted, finally got my hedges cut - have to get on the neighbors side to finish. Also made a quick stop at the farmers market and went grocery shopping. Today I have to finish cleaning the house and head to the cabin to clean and to mow if possible. If it is like yesterday it will be beautiful out then we will get storms and then it will get beautiful again. Going to the paint store tomorrow - paint is going on sale and I am going to work on getting the trim painted and the porches painted.

Guess my lazy days will have to wait for bad weather Janet.

Janet - sounds like a nice day.

Suppose to rain here today - we shall see.

Cleaned the cabin yesterday and no signs of fleas - but I sprayed anyways. Got some mowing done as well.

Going to the farmers market this morning and to the grocery and hardware store - other than that I am concentrating on getting things done around here today.

I think everyone is scrambling for the piece of the money now that the "traditional" method is no longer the only option. I'm liking it as I always hoped one day we could pick and choose a bit with channels.

Had a good day. Spent the entire afternoon working on my jigsaw puzzle. Enjoyed episodes of Crazy Ex Girlfriend while I did. Totally silly and many times inappropriate, but I love the majority of the musical sketches. Talented cast.

Janet - I was able to mow - 3 of the 4 yards are done. Tonight I head to the cabin to clan and mow - people leaving today and more are coming in.

Yea for the air conditioning,

It surprise me how much the tv, internet, and phone services are since more and more people are trying to find alternates. Prices are outrageous - you would think they would be lowering them.

Glad you enjoyed game night.

Glad you got some personal care time. Were you able to mow?

We have our house WiFi through a "tv/internet/phone" company and unless you have the whole package, you have limits.

I got lots of little things done this morning while Isaac was gone and then had time to just nap/rest in the afternoon. Tonight Tayler came over for game night so he played video games with Isaac for awhile and then we shifted to Labyrinth and Say Anything. It was fun.

The big news of the day is that we have air conditioning!!!!!

Janet - I don't think I have eve had limited in my house - interesting. But I get the gaming - Michael was so huge into it at Isaac's age.

Got my hair cut,colored and and a pedi last night - I am good to go for the next 5 weeks.

Wanted to mow tonight but they are calling for rain - I will have to wait and see what happens

Dorothy- Hooray for a great golf game!

We have unlimited data on our phones, but not our house internet. Gaming is brutal there!

Busy day...all in my blog...it's almost 11:30pm so will see you Thursday!

Janet - glad the Dr appointment went well even though she was running late,. what a great idea to get a prescription for massage therapy - and insurance really pays??

I use to have to shut off Michael's data every month because he would burn through it usually with a week to go - so glad when we got unlimited data.

Was able to golf last night - yea - we got a cart and I actually played my best game in a long time. Tonight hair cut and color and pedi

Good doctor visit once my turn came around. She was running almost an hour behind. We discussed the I-band and the need to get those knots worked out so I need to find a lacrosse ball or something similar to roll along my leg. She was very happy to write me a script for massage therapy (8 weeks that I can use 1x/week or for 8 monthly) so that was a sigh of relief as I need to freeze my account for awhile. We talked about my uncompleted tests and I know have through November to get them finished. She also referred me to a sports medicine doctor to see about getting cortisone treatments for the knee inflammation and pain.

Now it is time to just sit back and enjoy a show while Sparking. Noah's Ark (2014) was selected and so far it is good. Always have to remember the Hollywood touch in these movies though!

Hope the weather doesn't mess with your golf plans!

I am waiting on the doctor who is running almost an hour behind. I think they should send text alerts that arrival time has changed. I know...creates another whole monster.

Tim is working from home today so the place will not seem as calm. Don't know what it is, but the dynamic changes.

Isaac isn't happy that he will have work today. He has spent way too many hours gaming or online from his phone. The gaming put us over our limit so we shut that down. I also put a data stop on his phone, but with our wireless he could still get to his videos. Tim disconnected it last night so hopefully we are good for the last 7 days of our plan month. Ugh!

Hoping our consolidation loan finishes today as bills will be coming due this weekend. I need to spend time changing the auto withdrawals to the new debi

Janet - health care has gotten so expensive. So very sad.

It does make me wonder if they did not bring them inside themselves. They were hiking. I guess its a mystery I will never know.

I went up yesterday to the cabin to spray again and sprayed it with tree tea oil as well - I hope that helps. Mowed while I was there. I must admit that I am very excited that the grass is really slowing down on growing up there

I am suppose to golf today but it is suppose to rain all day - surprise surprise.

That is odd that they didn't notify you sooner about the fleas. Makes you wonder when it started.

My day was spent in a lobby during Maegann's therapy and then I got some paid work done at home. It was a nice Monday. Tomorrow I have to go for my follow-up doctor visit and get my labs done to check levels on new meds. I am sure she will understand why I didn't have two tests done -- funds. I plan to do them, but just can't make it happen right now.

Janet - I went up there armed and sprayed as soon as I walked in the door. I had a few fleas on me but the sweeper canister was full of them like he had said. I mowed while I waited for the spray to do its job and then vacuumed and did not see any more. I will go up and check again today and may even spray once more to be on the safe side. It just seems weird that they were there from Wednesday until Saturday night before they said anything,.

So I did get my house cleaned before I left here. And when I got home I started unloading my china cupboard from across the street and moved my hubby's tv onto another tv stand. My son and his friends got my china cupboard moved, my marble topped tv stand and another hutch plus my oak pedestal table - I am one happy camper - that is pretty much all of my stuff over here now. Now to get into the other house and get it cleaned and put back together again. Hopefully hubby will work on it today. Now I have boxes sitting around again but should not take long to unpack them and now I can finally hang pictures because I now can see what kind of wall space I have.

I love that puzzle - too cute.

Dorothy~Makes you wonder if the fleas came in on their things. Hopefully they are over-reacting.

My day consisted of church, bbq for lunch, getting the back deck cleared off and ice cream. I am SO thankful to have that deck project checked off. I got another jigsaw puzzle selected to put together.



Decided it was a calming activity to have available and this week could be up and down with Isaac's emotional swings regarding school starting on the 19th.

Janet - so much activity going on at your house. Ir will be so nice once its done.

Worked on the mortar on my foundation yesterday. That was hard work - physically - because it is so low and I had to keep moving around low to the ground. After 2 hours I called it good enough and stopped for the day - did not get anywhere near done what I wanted to as my body was done after that. My hands are sore right now from it so I will give it a week before I go another round with it. Today I am headed to the cabin to clean - after I finish cleaning my house - I got the upstairs cleaned yesterday now I have to finish down - then to the cabin to clean and mow. My guests that were staying there left a night early - they said there were fleas up there - there were not fleas when I cleaned it last so not sure what to expect when I get there. Weird thing was they have been there since Wednesday and just decided there were fleas now??

Dorothy~Hope you made a good dent in your to do list!

Kohl~Hope you have some down time this weekend.

My day was noisy because of the kitchen floor demo. I worked on the budget revisions and then got a client plan ready to submit once a couple documents show up. Next I took a nap...well a rest...too noisy to sleep. Haven't done much since and I'm okay with that.

Khol - emoticon marriage is hard enough and when you throw in kids it makes it more difficult - so many views to work with - and when your sensitive it is just one more layer. But you are such a good person and so sensitive to everyone's needs that you will figure it all out. Just do not let yourself get burned out.

Janet - you must be so proud of what a fine young lady Maegann is turning in to. I am sure she will get some brownie points.

That does make sense now Isaac going back to the same school - you both know what to expect an can have a plan in place.


Got most of the mowing done last night so I can work on my list today. I am going to clean my bedroom and upstairs bath before venturing out and also hit the farmers market and Aldis - and then look out list - here I come.

Dorothy~What refreshing words.... "before the weather changes". I'm SO ready for 70s instead of 90s. Have fun with your yard work!

Kohl~sorry the hubby chose the wrong moment to have a serious conversation. Tim and I have difficulty discussing finances/budgets and we both know it is wording and how our brains look at things. Tonight we were saying the same things, but he was using different words and likes a different order on the spreadsheet than I do. emoticon

Maegann is now at a place where the new students finish Core Classes are coming to the floor off and on to shadow an older student. This morning she had a sweet gal named Emily assigned for my appointment. She was so good with her and the three of us had a nice 2 hours together. Maegann is learning some things about herself through the voices of the new class. She has a reputation for being very good with her work and is a bit intimidating when she has her face "on" (makeup) because it is done so well. Thankfully Emily can go back and report that she is also a lot of fun and very easy to shadow.

Got Isaac's IEP taken care of today so no extra meeting needed next week. I'll definitely be more hands-on this year now that I know what I needed to keep him on task last year.

Tooth pain is so much better today. Still had some rough moments, but refused to take the pain meds as I had to get through the day with a clear head. I think I'll take one again tonight before bed.

Janet - I have also been meaning to tell you that I like your new picture!

Dorothy - Sometimes we have so much already on the to do list that we never get to the things we would rather do. Why is life so busy?

Decided yesterday I'm keeping my husband for another year at least! Life with him can be so hard. Even the morning he started talking to me in bed about expectations he had for our two old er girls that I wasn't awake enough to handle. Then he immediately gets a bit upset and says, "Sometimes i just can't stand talking to you." I think he picked the wrong time to talk to me, don't you. And didn't make me any more keen on responding with what he said to me. This is getting easier to emotionally handle with D20 going to counseling and discussing her sessions with me. I know I more am sensitive, more reactive, and come down to baseline more slowly than other people when I have negative interactions. So I am working at finding ways to cope until I'm over it. Today I choose to sleep in and then stay at the library while D15 is at Sven practice. I'm feeling table so I can go home and have a healthy lunch now.

Hope you all have a great day!

Janet - I been meaning to tell you I like your new picture., Nice to have a professional in the family to make you look good.

I hope Isaac does not have the problems in school this year that he had last year.

I can not take pain meds for that very reason - they make me hallucinate and knock me out.

I enjoyed my quiet night - did a bit of working in my gardens and a couple of loads of laundry. Tonight I will have to mow. And on Sunday I will be at the cabin mowing and cleaning. Tomorrow I hope to start getting some projects done around the house that I want done before the weather starts to change - like painting and working on my foundation, Also cleaning out the cellar and the garage

Dorothy~Glad you enjoyed your time with friends.

Yes, Isaac is going back to the same high school. I have an IEP meeting at the high school in the afternoon with the VP that works with special ed to go over everything and then we will set a meeting with the whole team for next week so things are done before school begins. I did have to switch from working on the budget to getting that info ready instead. I hadn't done much with the school folders since May.

I went to the dentist this afternoon and he believes my pain is from jaw muscles. Clenching due to stress possibly.... He offered me a stronger pain med and I took one this afternoon and within an hour I was out like a light. Guess I best time it correctly when I take these! I slept through supper time and woke to find that everyone did their own thing since I couldn't be raised. LOL

Tomorrow morning I am having Maegann touch-up the gray hair. Nice that she can let us use her discount!

Janet - smart move giving the kids chores today.

Maegann is young - she is time to figure out the whole relationship thing. Too bad she can't just figure out its ok to be alone as well - takes some of us years to figure that out.

Glad Isaac is helping you to decide what he wants to do in school. So its the same school that he went to last year??

Girls night out was fun - they were very nice and we knew a lot of the same people.

Dorothy~Where did you go tonight and was it fun?

Kohl~Did you have a calmer day?

My morning time alone (90 min.) didn't exist as Maegann came home from school as they were closed today -- she had forgotten. Once both kids were home, I got a chore list written up for each of them and put them to work. While they did that I cleaned up the kitchen and then got busy on the preliminary budget stuff. Tim and I went over the first draft of the budget and I will make edits tomorrow and then it will be ready to involve Maegann so it worked out fine that she actually went over to Tayler's tonight.

Tayler....yep....he's back in the picture. This is the guy Maegann enjoyed so much a few months after the Michael break-up. They are like a yo-yo, but this time they are being much smarter with their approach. Time with those other guys (Justin & Tyler) helped her figure out what a true relationship looks like and what she does/doesn't want. Can't say that was time wasted! Of all the guys she has brought by, Jeff and Tayler are the ones we were more comfortable with as parents. Tonight is their chosen time to talk it all through.

Isaac is at youth group with Meg tonight and she likes it as an active "social therapy" opportunity. Got Isaac's class schedule and I am going to see if he can swap out art for sports, but we'll see. I did get a decision from him today regarding extra basketball and he is going to stay with the group he played with last spring so I got that registration done today as the deadline is Friday. I think things are coming together for the school year.

Khol - I have to admit that is one thing I do not miss - a bunch of girls using those products. They are so expensive.

Sounds a lot like my hubby - get m e this or than or help me with this. You are very patient.

Janet - smart move having Maegann sit in on the budget talks.

It was beautiful out all day yesterday until it was time to go golfing and then the rain moved in. thats ok - we really needed it and I am tired of watering. I put all of the hanging baskets out in the rain.

I am going out with a friend tonight. The girl I went to the wine fest - her and her coworkers go out once a month and tonight they are going to a place I have never been so I got invited. Hopefully its fun.

Dorothy I emoticon berries! Blueberries?

Janet Do enjoy your time alone.

Theatre rehearsal was canceled today so I thought I would have some homebody time...not happening! Three of my daughters happen to be on their periods and because I no longer have that issue I neglected to see they were on emergency level supply (you think someone would of, could of, should have mentioned it to me or better yet made a trip to the store) and my husband called to say he had used up all the data on his phone and needed another. So we trekked around two stores in the evening instead of relaxing.

My husband and I did weeding together this evening as well. I was more of his gopher than anything...get me another 5 gallon bucket from out of the garage, hand me the shovel, is there a can of cold Vernors in the fridge? That was okay with me. It helped me to apply what I had read in scripture earlier in the day. Man needed a suitable helper...

Spent my day finishing up the budget reviews so they are done for another month. Took until about 4pm and then I was ready for a nap.

Tomorrow I will have a little time in an empty house as Isaac will be with Destinie from 8-9:30 or so. In the evening Tim and I are going to sit down and make the August budget. Want Maegann to be involved for learning purposes as age 18 is right around the corner and her brain can finally hang onto it.
