Update for the Week

Boy has this week been fun. My boss was TDY and I held down the fort. Crazy days of summer right before school is going to start. I can't believe that Hannah will be in 2nd grade this year. It just seems like yesterday that she was starting PreK. She will be changing schools and going to a school with bigger kids. Scarry for me, she's looking forward to it.

We are looking to have Andrew go to a PreK 3 at Bonaire Baptist Church. They go every day from 9-12. This will help because next year he will be going to PreK 4 which is an all day program. Andrew has found a new movie that he is totally in love with "The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lava girl.". He loves to watch this movie.

I am off the next couple of days but then I am back to work for a week before I go in for my surgery. I am having a hysterectomy on the 5th of August. Terrible timing at work but better than 4th quarter.

All is well here, no pics to post but maybe during my time off, I will be able to take some pics of the kids around the house.

Lots of Love to all

Weekly Update

Well, This week has had it's challenges. As the time gets closer to having surgery, I am finding myself with a bunch of work to get done. One of which is training one of the managers to fill in for me for 4-6 weeks. WOW! that's a long time to be away from work.

If you all have not tried these new Triscuits with Cracked pepper and olive oil you should. They are good with cheese. My boss had them and I tried one, it was really good. Better than the dry regular triscuits.

Hannah, Andrew, and I went to the fireworks with Elaine and her family Thursday. They had a concert with the country band Lonestar. We had the band in earlier that day to sign autographs, take pictures and sign Cd's. They were so down to earth and fun. You know how I hate crowds so we just went down the street from the stadium and watched the fireworks....Andrew was playing in the van and turned my interior lights on. I did not realize it till it was too late. YEP...dead battery. Ron had to go home and get his jumper cables to jump the van. It worked and all was fine. Try being trapped in a van with a 3 year old that is too tired, 7 year old that wants to get out, 12 year old that says it's too hot....We couldn't roll the windows down either because the battery was dead. Pam, Elaine's daughter, said that it felt nice, Elaine and I were about to burst into flames we were so hot. The kids actually were calmer when it was hot. We did not get home that night until 1230am. Andrew was asleep but woke up and did not want to go to sleep he wanted to watch TV. It was hilarious until I had to get up at 545am to get ready for work. YEP, I went into work on the 4Th of July.

I talked to my friend Debbie yesterday. I won't tell you all the details because really that is not important but Debbie is back stronger and in control more than ever. Congrats Debbie for finding the inner strength to do what you have to do. We all love you and know you are going to make it all work.

Well, I must go. Have a MOUND of laundry I have to tackle.

Hope this finds you all well and happy.

Lots of Love
