I haven't wrote an entry in about a week so I figured I would tonight. I hope alerts are working again! AOL can be so frustrating sometimes. Well let's see what is new this week?
Hubby is home now after being gone for 8 days up north at his brothers house. Yesterday we went and got my daughters viola for orchestra. Her first lesson is on Oct. 8th. She also got voted for Student Council and she is so excited about it! She is making a box as we speak for Yoplait Save lids to save lives. IF any of you eat Yoplait yogurts and just toss it away when done if you felt like saving the lids and sending them to me it would be greatly appreciated ;) It is to help fight Breast Cancer. You can google search it and find out what it is all about ;) The box she is making will be decorated and sit in her classroom for the other students to bring the lids in over the year.
I have been making tie blankets for my kids and hubby. I took some pictures of them that I will post at the end of this entry. I have mine left to make and one other. They are so warm because they are double fleeced! Love em!
We bought our Australian Water Dragon Drako a new cage when we moved and he is loving it! I took a couple pictures of him chilling in these funny positions. He has molted beautifully 2 times since in this cage and grown. He had outgrown his old cage so this one was an awesome find! We were actually going to build him one until I found this one already built on Craigslist by another man who happened to have the same dragon and he died. He sold it so cheaply compared to what it actually cost to build it.
Our weather here in MN is so wacky! One day it is in the 50's and the next it is in the high 80's. Air on, heat on, ect. Hard to keep it just right temp wise.
We are moving on October 5th into a much bigger townhouse. We will stay there until my kids are done with school this year and hopefully be moving into our dream brand new built home. That is my goal this year. To build my ideal house that I will grow old in and have it be done by next summer. I honestly have not looked much into yet because I was enjoying not thinking about it lol
It will be so nice when we move that my kids will be in district and able to be bussed! I cannot wait.
Well I am off to make a couple tags. I hope everyone's week is going good!
Love you and hugs,
The first two pics are getting blanket ready to tie and the rest will be the finished products. The first one is my hubbys, the second is my sons, and the third is my daughters.
And here is my crazy water dragon chillen bigtime! lol He is using his tail to hold him up so his back legs can dangle....
Hi everyone. I have so much I could write about tonight but really do not know where to start or even how to finish it. I will just say that I recently have found out that my whole life as I have ever known it may have been based on one big dark lie that many people in my life (including the ones that I thought were the only two to never lie to me played the biggest role in).
I recieved a out of the blue email 2 days ago that at first I thought was a joke, then they kept coming and myself and brother and sister have been trying to put pieces together and it is starting to look like it may be the truth.
It will not change the woman I am today but it will shake me to the core because everything I have based the woman I am today on may all be a lie or surrounded by lies...... I honestly wish I could say more but at this point I do not feel like I should go into details with alot of people. Some people stand to be hurt greatly, and others stand to find the answers they have spent thier whole life looking for.
So for now I will say I am confused, I am worried, I am unsure. My mind is replaying all of the facts over and over and over. My head is throbbing because I cannot stop thinking about it!
Moving on, yesterday was my daughter's b/f's birthday. He LOVES lasagna so I made him some and had them over for dinner. Most of the pics will be from last night. I got some of the cutest pics of my grandson and nephew!! I cannot believe how cute they both are, and how big they are getting so quickly! My grandson is huge :) He is 2 and half months old and very close in size to my 6 and half month old nephew.
My kids are loving the new schools they are going to. My daughter's school is for all of the 5th and 6th graders in the district only. There is over 2000 kids there! Wow!She is learning Chinese and loving it. It is actually really funny when she comes home and speaks to me in the language because I surely do not understand her lol! She was in two different gifted programs in her last school, and she will begin the testing this Thursday to see where she fits in this new schools gifted programs. She is so smart! I am so proud of her ;)
She also picked her instrument out last week and chose the viola. She is so excited! She also joined choir. She is going to be a busy girl this year. But is falling over with anticipation of waiting for them all to start. She would be happy if there wasn't a waiting process involved and she could jump right in tomorrow lol.
My son has been going M-F but only for 4 hours for now. We are trying a new approach this year. He is in 3rd grade but not mainstreamed. He stays in the Special Education classroom fulltime with a one on one fulltime assistant. His teacher this year is amazing. So far we love her! We love how she reacts to Josh, how she interacts with him, and the genuine care she seems to have for him. She thinks he is the cutest thing in the world (Which I happen to agree with lol!).
I have to drive them both to school and pick them up until we move into a bigger place on the 5th of Oct. They will be able to be bussed then. So for now my daughter has to be at school at 7:30 and my son has to be there at 10. Then my daughter gets out at two and I pick my son up at 1:45. Does not really leave much time to anything during the day but maybe run a few errands or clean or maybe relax for a couple hours.
It was 49 degrees here 3 days ago BRR! I had my air on and when we got up in the morning we were all freezing!! Now yesterday it was 80 again??? So air went back on because it is so humid here. My windows are actually fogged up right now from the humidity.
Well I think I will end this with a ton of pictures and get ready for bed. I am zonked and my head is pounding. I have managed to get about 3 hours sleep for the last two nights in a row. I lay there and have so much on my mind I cannot shut it down. I would love to get a whole 7-8 hours sometime soon.
Hugs and Love,
The birthday boy turned 20 .....

See how big Caleb looks compared to my sisters son? They are both adorable ;) Love them to pieces!!
