Well Frank recieved one check from unemployment. Yeh, at least he got it! His boss called him back to work the Tuesday after Memorial day. Thank god he still has a job! I won't care if he gets laid off from time to time as long as there is a unemployment check to count on.
The kids are getting excited about summer! Their last day is the 15th and they only go for a couple of hours! I'm not too excited about it...but i am excited about sleeping in! I can see it now...everything will be fine for a couple days and then boom...bam...bang...fight after fight!
Mom and I opened the pool a few days ago. Hopefully that will keep the kids from fighting so much. I can't believe the kids went in the last couple days...to me its still too cold. We had two days that i had to turn my air conditioning on, i can't stand the heat...it makes me sick. I was glad that i could shut it off and open the windows again. I am trying to keep my bills down to catch up on them.
I make the first payment on the truck this month. I put in some overtime the last couple of weeks. I snuck in an extra hour here and there. Not without any reason...we have been trying to transfer all the dvd's back into original cover art it's not easy when you have almost 5,000 movies on the floor area. We have only been able to work on it here and there. Putting the movies back in their cases saves us so much time when we put them for sale or send them back to distribution. Frank and I both have done what we can to survive during the hard times.
Frank took on a roofing job over the weekend for some extra money. The guy said he would call Frank if he has another roof in the area. He does them on the weekends only, which would be the only time he would be able to do it anyways.
This week was tight for us, I had to renew my plates to both our vehicles because my birthday is the 8th...I get paid on the 9th so ...i went and did it because with my luck me or frank would have been pulled over. The cost of my pills were outrageous...so it did not leave much for us to squeak by on. Frank said the guy for the roof was going to pay him Monday...that will get us thru the rest of the week.
Amber is having like her 8th field trip on thursday...The school is treating her out to C. J. Barrymores because she was on Safety Patrol all year. Guess what!!!!!! She is going to be Safety captain next year! This means she gets to do the flags and makes sure all the safety's are on their post. She is so geeked that the teacher that is in charge of safety's gave her this honor.
The teacher, Mrs. Fischer, is such an excellent teacher...Darin had her for 2nd grade and she really turned him around on the reading. When teacher's week came i gave her a bouquet of flowers and a really nice note. Do you know that she keeps that note and shows it off to all the rest of the teachers.. She said that it made her cry.. I sincerely meant every word that i wrote. She told me that when a parent is complaining to her about their kid, she will pull it out and read it to make her feel better. I thought that was sweet.
When Amber was going into the 2nd grade i insisted on having her teach Amber. She loved both my kids.
All of us at my work just found out that we re getting a new store manager on Monday. Everyone that has worked with her says that she is a sweetie...cross your fingers ya'll!
We are having a meeting tomorrow with her, just to get to know eachother. I think it will be fine. We handle things rather well, and we will just have to see what she will be expecting from us.
Well, bed time awaits...
