Where have you been?

Hi everyone, yes i have been MIA for a few months but I never stopped wondering how my blog friends were doing, even occasionaly checked in and read a few blogs. I just stopped blogging because i felt my life was boring. Let me catch you up on what has happened while I was gone. My son graduated highschool, proposed to his girlfreind, moved in with his girlfriend was told he was hired at walmart but they never put him to work, he turned down a job from safeway because he thought walmart was hiring him, he is to passsive to call walmart and say "hey what the heck!!" so he decided to join the oregon national army guard. I FREAKED out, I came to terms with it. It seems its a longer process than anticipated. Trying to not micro-manage his life but how can I not, he is my son.
My daughter was in church, had her cell phone out a boy took it threw it in garbage so my lovely daughter swung her purse at his head and split it open leaving him to get two staples and a huge blood stain on church carpet. Luckily his mom and I are good friends so no law suit followed. My daughter lost her phone and her nintendo ds (it was in her purse) and she was shaken up, she didnt mean to do so much damage. lesson learned, we use our words not our hands (or purse) boy wont mess with her anymore. Shes ten he is thirteen. Everything is good, thank God!! She came up with the idea of making him a fruit basket, we went with a candy/snack basket instead.
My husband was nominated for driver of the year with his company so we have an awards banquet coming up on the 24th. How exciting. The company is paying for our room and it's away from the kids. Yay!!! This weeken Im going to a womens retreat in the woods with my church. Cant wait for tomorrow. Thats about it. Just living life, being a mom.

Im back

I have no excuse, I just don't like this computer. Actually I have been rather busy getting my son ready for graduation. I mailed out his announcements last week. I'm a very proud mom, my son pulled himself out of his funk and is doing great. he is now a quarter credit ahead of what is required for graduation. His grad date is June tenth and my parents and my sister and her family will be coming up from Sacramento and spending that week with us. This will be my first time hosting a family event. I have lots to do to prepare for this. My son now has decided he wants to be a juvenile corrections officer, we are just happy he is making goals.
Hi Kath, how are you? I'm on my way to bible study so I will have to play catch up tomorrow. I hope all you ladies have been living well and have been blessed. Happy Mothers Day to all my mommy blog friends!!!!!!

whats been going on

I didn't realize I hadn't posted for so long. Life gets busy. The next two months are really busy for my daughters girl scout troop. I have had every test to see what can be causing the dizziness and they all checked out normal, so I'm left with no answers. I'm starting to think it may be hormonal. I guess I just have to live with it.
My honey will finally be back home this week. It's been 6 weeks since his last visit. I was lucky enough to drive up north last Wednesday and stay the night with him in a hotel, so that was nice.
My sons progress report had one D and one F so I had to get on him about that and take away a few privileges. It is to close to graduation to be messing up, plus I already ordered his cap and gown. The school has a program where parents can log on and check out their child's daily work and grades.
We went snow tubing last weekend, it was so much fun. I'm hoping to take them again next weekend. Today it's stormy out but still no snow.
After my housework I will be by to pay you all a visit and catch up. See ya

Stop spinning!!!

I have been suffering from vertigo for over a year now. Last Thursday I had the worse spell yet. I couldnt even drive and when I walked around the house I had to hold on to the wall. I just wanted to vomit. I have been to the doctors twice for this and she just gave me allergy meds. Friday I went back to the doctor and now she is refering me to an ENT doctor. That spell lasted 4 days. It is really hard to be a pleasent person when all you can think about is how weird you feel. It's like a constant drunk feeling. Life must go on. Today we have girlscout cookie booth sales. Fun, fun, fun. I miss my honey, same thing evrytime he leaves. I fight depression then accept there is nothing I can do, this is what I signed up for:( He is back to having a student on the truck so now our evenings of talking are out the door:( I guess thats all I have to moan about today:) See Ya

Im Back

January was a very stressful month, but it's over and February is going to be a great month!!
I have been so busy, my son is a half credit shy of graduating so we have been trying to work with the schools counselor to find a way for him to earn this half credit. They are letting him do 120 hours of community service, so I have been shuttling him to and fro. he spent the weekend pulling black berry bushes at a nearby mountain where people go and hike. He loves it, he has now decided to go into the forestry department as a career. Im very proud of him. Ave has been busy with church, girls scouts and now I have added one more thing to her activities. Acting and drama classes. The local theatre called Lord Leebricks offers an 8 week course for her age. She is so dramatic she needs a positive way to express her self. She is doing it with a friend from church, they had their first lesson last Saturday and just really enjoyed it.
As for me and my "friend" issue, I decided that I have been given too many second chances in life to not give her one. So far we are only talking via e-mail and that's fine with me.
My church is holding a sweetheart banquet on the 12th and guess what? I have a date. My honey has agreed to go with me. This will be his first time in a church since he was a little boy. Im hoping some seeds are planted.
Yuk! It's tax time. Time for me to sit down and go through all the receipts. I need to get this done before my honey comes home on the 11th.
I think today I will go join Curves. It's across the street from my house and I could just walk there everyday. So how has everyone else been. We still have no snow. I guess Im going to have to drive to it since it wont come to me. Not much of a winter, it's been disappointing.
Okay well, have a great week!!!

another failed friendship

I broke up with my bestfriend. She has been my mentor in Christ for the past year. Last Friday she disagreed with me on something and started cussing me out, calling me names and attacking my character and parenting. I was in shock that she had resorted to such meanness. I stayed calm and took the high road and simply told her this friendship was over. This was my third attempt to have a friend since we moved here four years ago. The first two turned out to be drug addicts and now this. I wont let it discourage me, I have more friends at church just none were as close to me as she was.
My daughter is always seeking justice. Like at school if someone cuts in line she will make a big enough scene that gets her sent to the principal. I keep telling her it's not a big deal and just let it go. I now have started going to the school and having lunch with her, recess then 45 minutes in the class. Can you believe yesterday right in front of me she cut in front of another girl then copped an attitude when the girl said, " hey I'm next". I feel like by the time she gets to middle school she's going to have so many enemies that I'm going to have to home school her. I'm not equipped for that. Raising my son was so much easier. I wasn't prepared for 9 year old girl drama. I hope she grows out of this. She does have a bestfriend so its not like she cant get along with everybody. She just clashes with certain girls. Anyways..........
Girlscout cookie sales have started. I'm waiting for the manager at a nearby truckstop to get back with me and let me know if its okay to set up a cookie booth there. I know the truckers would buy them up. I guess that's all for today. Today is a no-bill payday so I get to go to Costco:):) and my honey might be passing thru tomorrow:)))
Talk to you all later.

feeling sick

Sorry I haven't posted, I have been sick since Monday. Feeling depressed too. I miss my honey:((( He is not scheduled to be home until February 11th. I'm starting to feel better today, yesterday I was vomiting. Ave has girlscouts tonight so no ,matter how I feel I have to be mom and take her. That's whats hard about dad being away and no family around. Even if I get sick I really cant rest as much as needed, there is no one to take my place. Although my 17 yr old does help out, but he doesn't drive, he has really no desire to drive he thinks it's dangerous. Anyways I don't mean to gripe. Hope every ones Thursday is a good one. Oh we still have no snow:(
