It's looking good

Frank's first day at his new job went great! So far he seems to be liking it.
He was able to do many different jobs today which he said made the time go by faster. He also was able to go to other buildings to do other jobs.
Hopefully it will be a great change for him.

Mom's had her surgery on Friday. She was at the hospital at 9 in the morning and ready for surgery by 10:45 a.m. by the time i went and had some lunch and went back to the waiting room, the doctor came to me and told me that everything went fine, and he is pretty sure that he got all the infectious lump out. This was about 11:30 a.m. and then it wasn't until about 1:30 pm that i was able to see her out of recovery and up into a room.

The doctor was worried that he might injure a nerve that would prevent her from smiling, but when i saw her she immediately smiled at me so i knew that part was fine.


I mailed off my last van payment!!!!!!
In a couple of months if everything is fine with Frank's new job and i get caught up on some bills, i will be thinking of buying a new truck.

I have just lost one of the greatest bosses that you could ever hope for. She has decided to leave blockbuster for personal reasons. I can't blame her. But i am just a little selfish, she did not want me moving to Kalamazoo, but she leaves.. sad sad day.

I wish her well with everything! And i hope that we stay in touch. I gave her my email and told her that i am great at being a pen pal...or rather email pal. You write me...i write you :)

Pray that we don't get some evil M F'er in our store thinking they can come in and disturb the force. It's been running smoothly in our store. We are not normally first in everything but usually run in second place. I can live with that.

I just realized while watching my neighbors bring up their teenage kids how hard my job is going to be in just a few short years. And i am going to be looking for advice on alot of things. Such as girlfriends and boyfriends into the picture. How to give them some freedom...but not too much freedom.
I don't need either of my kids coming home and saying guess what grandma....ohhhh heck noooooo not before graduation!

I know i am prematurely thinking of this stuff...but it's something that i am afraid of. I try to be a good mother, My kids have what they need and i usually give them what they want, but not without earning it from me one way or the other.
I try and teach them a value of a dollar. I have to thank my parents for that!

Way back when i wanted my first ten speed, my dad said if i want it, i had to earn it. I worked my a** off to save for that bike. After a few months i had earned enough money to get it out of lay-a-way. I even remember getting it out of Sear's, and barely could wait to ride it.

But my point is I try not to spoil them and i am hopeing that i am doing the best as a parent that i can be. I honestly love when they know that they can depend on me when they are in need.

Don't ask me where this segment came from...I guess it's something that just had to be said. That and if i start asking questions...i want some help from those that have been down the teenage route. lol

"Derailed" was pretty good...but i tell ya if you want a movie to mess with your gotta watch this one.

"In the Mix" this one has Usher the singer playing in it. It was cute, good love story.

Do any of you watch Ghost Whisperer? I absolutely love this series!!!! Every friday night i am glued to the tv at 8pm. I guess because it is about the paranormal.

Well i think i yada, yada, yada enough so off to bed i go.

The title is an apt one!
It IS all looking good--the new job, the mom surgery, the van paid off, the kids are happy and not teenagers Yet.

Believe me, you are on the right track.

The thing with kids is we don't have to do it all at once. There is a database of knowledge and intuition that gets built up for years. You kinda get a feel for what the kid needs and how the boundary is being pushed.
Which is to say that just as you get comfy with one stage and a feeling of 'hey, I think I handled that okay' then along comes new and different.
Your attitude is good about being a mother. Best of Luck!
