so much has happened!

Just had to put a pic of my now 16 year old son!
I'm so tired from working a zillion hours! and on this day I got up early and made breakfast, worked, thru a birthday party, went to church and then took my daughter and her boyfriend to the movies.. ack!

Some progress is being made on my weight loss...down 46 pounds...although I don't think this week is going to show any progress...I am so stressed!

Amber turned 15 on the 26th of this month...she is growing up so fast!!

I made her birthday cake, she wanted a banana cake, I did the best that i could!

A tree fell in my backyard. thanking god that the only real damage was done to a fence!

The fence is under there somewhere!

I became a grandma for a school project. She named him Jaden Treyvon Barney...It was a definite learning experience for her. But the dang thing was so loud it woke me 6 times in one night...Thank God that's over with.

The 17th was hubby and I's wedding anniversary. Sixteen years of wedded bliss. We all went to the cider mill and walked around some paths and took some really nice pics.

I love this pic, I'm gonna get it blown up!

and this one of my son is a definite keeper!

I tried to play professional camera woman.

So much has gone on. None of it really good.
Hubby is still out of work.
Amber had another reaction to another medicine.
Still don't know what is going on with her.
The hot water tank stopped working again and when it was supposed to be fixed a tree fell in my backyard, and the hot water tank did not get fixed that day.
My mom went into the hospital again with another stroke. This one almost blinded her. She was blind for a few hours! She is ok right now, but she will have another surgery, apparently she has a 80% blockage in her neck.
So the month of September has really sucked!!!!! Hopefully October will get better.

Ok, where was I.

If there is anyone that reads my blog that has facebook and would like to be my friend on facebook let me know. It's easier for me to update real quick over there. But this will always be my little diary:)

Lets see, Frank is still looking for a job, he did have one interview but he hasn't heard anything back. He is depressed and was taking it out on all of us. He fought with everyone, my father, our kids, me, I was ready to beat his butt!!! Then I snapped at him and gave him a bit of a slap in the face (sort of speak) to just chill out!! It's going to be ok....But i found out from my neighbor that he confides in that it's because he is sorta depressed and worried about me. He doesn't like me working so much. But I am, what I call in "survival mode" working all these days and hours is not bothering me at the moment as long as it's for survival.

I am just thanking God that at the moment I can get the hours at my work, there are hours "a plenty" open right now! I don't mind most days. But when Frank does find a job, you know i am taking a vacation!!! lol

Now about Amber, she has just started vomiting again. For a couple months after taking antibiotics she pretty much just stopped vomiting. She did not even take her acid reducers. Now she is back on acid reducers. Tomorrow I go see a Infectious disease doctor and tell him the whole story and pretty much hope that there is something that he can do. I hope that he finds something!!! After this, I have no clue what I am going to do.

The kids, they are both in high school now. They had their first full day today, Amber was excited about being with her friends. Both would rather stay home...lol Darin has weight lifting, he is hoping to bulk up nicely. He would look so good! He also took drawing...remember the pictures i showed you before that he had done...I think he has a little talent. He also starts calculus this year. Hope he can handle it, he has always done good with math, he says it's easy, we will see!!

Amber took child development, she's excited about getting one of those fake babies. Hope she learns to not have one for a very long time!! lol She also has Business computers, I know she will like that!! The rest for both children is math, social studies, history and all of that kind of thing. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I am hoping to get my front brakes done this weekend before they get too bad. Thankfully i have a mechanic friend that owes me a favor :) so it's only costing me parts....well actually he is going to pretty much instruct my husband on how to do it because he is on some restrictions for his leg. But at least it's going to get done.

Me, well, I had horrible pains, my back tried to go out on me.I had a pinched nerve, it caused my foot to go numb..thankfully I had a back brace and some vicodin that helped make it thru the day at work until I saw the doctor and got the shot in my back, and i also took a shot in the left elbow that had been bothering me for quite awhile. But the pain is slowly coming back in my elbow. I think i may take another shot in the heel the next time I see my doctor, the heel spurs are hurting! But again I am thanking God that I am not missing any days at work and am able to work a ridiculous amount of hours lately!!!

One thing that i do know is that i have great friends, life long friends, I even have special friends at work, ones that actually care about me!!! These days i need them all!!!

Oh and I have posted my new weight loss, look at that girl move across the board!! Down 44 pounds!!! It amazes me!! Some days are harder than others! For me to lose anything while depressed and stressed is amazing!!

Well I am outta here!!! Gotta get some zzzzzzz's!
