One Down...

One week down about 175 days to go till summer break 2008!:o) It's all good though, right now we are working on getting into a good routine. It was much easier when the girls were younger I said bedtime and everyone went. Now mom is bed asleep before everyone. It was a long but educational week for me. I feel like I am finally getting a grip on the new job. Learning the quirks of some of the teachers and staff, not to mention finding new hiding places! HAHA I'm joking really. I stayed at work till 6 Thursday and that really gave me the edge I needed to get what I needed done. It's amazing what you can get done when you’re left alone for a few hours. Honestly the people I work with have been awesome, I couldn’t ask for a better.

I am very proud of the girl’s they really have started the year well. I checked grades and they are right on track. I had an IEP meeting for Lis and I was so happy with what they are doing for her. With everything that has happened in our lives the past few years we were in the right place for love and support from so many people. God really has blessed us.

This weekend Lin and I had a night out alone. It was so nice to be able to spend some time with just her. She is growing into a wonderful young lady and I am so proud of her.

My classes start back tomorrow. I wish I could say I was looking forward to it but I'm not. I feel like I have been going to school forever, I just keep reminding my self that I am always one step closer with each class. I am tired though. I really needed a longer break.

Other then the damn heat wave not much more to tell you all. My poor grass is so ugly right now. I think I am going to have to cheat and water tonight.

Time Flies

It seems like we just started out summer vacation and it was over. The girls started back to school with out a hitch which is always good news. I started a new position at my school. This year I am the temporary Lab Tech. I think I am going to really enjoy this job once I get things running smoothly. I have been up lots worrying about everything I haven't completed but I hope by the end of this week to be up-to-date.

My summer classes were stressful but I made it through with the help of some friends. I ended up with 2-B and 1'A. Can't complain about the grades but I didn’t get to do much with my girls. I am not sure I can do 3 classes again next summer; I really want to do some things with my girls. Fall classes start the 20th. Wish me luck.

My grandmother's cancer is holding steady and she is doing great. Thank you all for the prayers.
