a little of everything

The last couple of days have not been too bad...The boys and i spent the day together on Sunday, and just relaxed, well for most of the day anyway...I got a lot of writing done, and reading also...right now i am reading a book about an Amish community, its actually a trilogy...I'm on the last book now...its a great story...i have always been fascinated by the Amish....

Steven and Dominic started with their new teacher yesterday, so far, so good...they were in high spirits about it, although i think they miss there first one...she is the greatest teacher i have ever had for the boys...anyway, i talked to the new teacher this morning, and she said they did great yesterday..,She has a bit of a louder voice, but its not booming loud, so i think she will be very affective for them...i need to help them work on writing names better...they aren't very good at it, but if i write it, they will copy it underneath...Steven is better at the coloring and writing, and Dominic is better at the motor skills stuff...Logan had 2 sheets of homework yesterday, one of them just had the number 5 printed and nothing else..lol..logan had no idea what he was suppose to do with it, so i wrote the teacher a note telling her that i would help him with his homework as long as i knew what it was suppose to be..Michael seems to be really happy with his teacher...his confidence level is way up, and he is starting to do alot more things by himself...i am really happy with things so far...

I talked to Nick last night for about 15 minutes...he seems in good spirits even though NTC is not real organized at this point...He misses everyone so much...the boys ha vent been able to talk to him in a couple of weeks because of his schedule, but they are doing OK with it...He cant wait to get back to Hawaii, and i cant wait till he is too...then a month later he will be home for a few weeks...then off to Iraq....

I have an interview on Saturday for some office work...we will see how that goes...I don't think it is going to work out...it is for a company that I'm not to sure about...my first instinct is to back out of it, but what will an interview hurt...I am having trouble finding a job, because of having to be out early, but i know i will find the right one...I still want to do daycare, but i have to make money to get all the things together for that one...they require you to have everything completely done before you send in the application now...whereas before you could send in the application, and get everything finished within 6 months...so now i am kind of stuck....I have to come up with the money for Christmas, last year i sold my 4 wheeler to buy the kids some presents, i need to come up with the money for my divorce, and the money for this daycare thing....I'm very frustrated, i know it will all work out, but at the moment, I'm really not looking fore ward to Christmas this year...i know it has nothing to do with the presents, but its nice to have a few things under there...this year i have nothing to sell..ah well, no sense stressing about it this early...it will all come together....

We're in the same boat this year. Though my folks are coming, it will be slim pickins! So we decided this year every gift will be homemade....everyone gets to be creative and use what we have around the house/yard. Maybe you ought to try that, so that way it doesn't feel like you're missing out. I bet for us it will end up being a very sweet Holiday season. I think good memories come from being simple.
