On Saturday my daughter turned 14 years old. The time has just flown. There are some days I am amazed that she has made it this far...lmao!!!! But seriously I love her to death!!

We spent her birthday up north with my best friend Barb and had a wonderful time on her farm...The time was short, but we packed in as much as you can in about 24 hours. Anyhoo, I did not get to post her Happy Birthday on Saturday because of our weekend, but we are going to have cake and ice cream after school and work tomorrow.

Happy Birthday Baby!!

little bit of this and a little bit of that!

If you follow me on facebook you would know that i have been absolutely sick this past week. It started with a sore throat, then quickly turned to some kind of flu with a fever that had me bundled up in a comforter on an 83 degree day!!! The fever broke around 1 in the morning and i was able to function but still feeling very bad. Now i would say it's a simple cold...but i hate the cough or rattling in the chest!!! I know i will be fine very soon. Poor Darin has had pretty much the same thing with me. I have went thru 3 bottles of dayquil and 2 bottles of nyquil!!! Between Darin and I. It helps alot!!

I'm really worried about Amber, she is getting more and more not the girl that i want her to be. I am just going to leave it that...I expected it a little when she got back with her friends...For most of the summer i was actually happy with her. foot will break off in her ass if needs be!!!lol

Darin went to hunter safety class this weekend and passed!!!! He got so much stuff for his hard work in class. He is really impressed with a compass/light/whistle thingy that he got. He got a certificate for passing, a patch to put on his hunting outfit and a cute bandana. Frank went with him to the class, which i thought was really nice and at least he got a refresher class.

Work for me was hard while being sick, but made it thru. I excited because this week i get to learn something new. I get to work in the diet office and take the orders when they call down. Yeh!!! Something new...I hope it's easy enough. I think learning all the different diets will be the hardest..knowing what they can and can not have.

Anyway...not much else is going on...I am going to try and visit my friend up north on the 26th for the weekend. It's also Amber's birthday!!!! We will have some cake and ice cream when we get home. I'm sure she will want some kind of clothes from Hot Topic for her Birthday.

Take Care, hope everyone's week goes really well!

What's up?

It's too early to tell if the kids are enjoying school. I know that they are not enjoying getting up Amber had her meet the teacher thing at school, they all seem nice and all seem to want to have a great year. This is the last year that Amber's school will even be open, they are closing it's doors in June. Amber will hopefully be in High School next year if all goes well.

While meeting the teachers alot of the teachers recommended that the students tell the parents where they sit and with who. Amber, in just about every class sits next to "Tom, Dick, and Harry, Rick, Bob and Steve...and Britney....lmao! And she swears that's just how she got seated...yahhhhhh

Can't wait to see Darin's classes and things..I'm not sure when that will be. Darin needed alot of supplies. He had to have a binder for every class! A scientific calculater, black pen, blue pens, red pens, binder separaters and the list goes on. Every year it's getting worse!

I had this weekend off, I went to the Warren city concerts, they had the "Shades of Blue" playing, they were really fun to watch, singing things from the 50's, 60's and 70's. Then they had "Danny and the Juniors" famous for the songs "at the hop" and "rock and roll is here to stay" . As old as they are they really did put on a good show, filled with funny things they did and many jokes. My father barely leaves the house and for this he actually went to see it, and enjoyed himself!

Other than that, not much to report.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, the weather was beautiful for just about anything!

picnic at metro...just the fam!

Ok, so i had this big plan to spend the day with the kids at a nice park, by the water, watching the boats come in and out of the channel. A small picnic, packed plenty of water, some pop, and stopped at the local market and picked up one of those huge already made subs and a couple bags of chips and off we went.

Darin was going to do some fishing, Amber too if she wanted. Just after we had a quick bite, about to put the pole in the water i looked over to find my husband walking in. He was suppose to be working, he got off early and joined us, that was a nice surprise, i think he was
