Well, things have been going ok...not the greatest, but they are going....I havent been posting blogs as much, it seems i dont have so much to talk about these days...I had a headache that started on sunday, and was constant all through wednesday night...if it hadnt gone away by yesterday morning, i was gonna go to the ER cuz even motrin only took it away for an hour, and it would come back...then wednesday afternoon my side started to swell, and was painful....but by Thursday morning it was gone, so, who knows what it was....im just glad to be feeling better...When it first started i thought it was stress, so i did what i could to try to get rid of it...but it didnt work...

This weekend i dont have the boys, so i will probably spend it catching up on the house, and watching movies...im not in the mood to really go anywhere, so i will enjoy my quiet time i guess...maybe catch up on some reading....

Nick finally got his computer...he realy likes it...and he got a new camera, so, i cant wait to start getting some pics from him!! only problem is, no internet except the public ones...its pretty frustrating...he has waiting so long to be able to get online, and he cant seem to get a good enough signal in his room to get online now...so as of now, no chatting yet, except when he goes to the public ones....the cell phone idea never really worked out either...it barely gota signal anywhere...then when it finally did, we were constantly being cut off...if he could get online in his room we could use skype, or yahoo voice or something...but we are still doing it the Army way....lol, its like a conspiracy...ah well, we are dealing just fine with it....i write alot of letters as well, so it feels like i talk to him more often...

the boys have conferences next week...im not looking foreward to the ones for Steven, Logan, and Dominic...they arent doing well....Michael is though....Ive got the 3 younger ones in an afterschool reading program 2 days a week, and yesterday one of the parapro's said that Dominic cries because he dosnt want to do the work, and Steven laughs at everything...I am gonna talk to there teacher and see about having Steven tested for some things....If there is something going on, i want it caught early...I think Dominic's problem is he is just stubborn...and there have been alot of changes, and alot going on the last couple of years....

so, i am thinking about putting all the boys in summer school...its a 6 week program, and would still leave alot of the summer to pay..school only goes till 1:30 i think, and it would keep there minds going so that they dont backslide over the summer...and i really think they would like it...I think at this point, its important for them to keep that education going throughout the summer...i hear its a great program...Denny is against it, but he needs to think about their education and future, not how much fun they can have over the summer..times have changed, and they expect kids to know alot more, earlier then they did when we were kids...the world of acedemics has totally changed...i was gonna put them in sports....but until next summer when Nick is home i think its just too much for me to do...the older ones would have to travel, and the younger ones wouldnt...it just wouldnt not work out....

well, im off to start on my daily stuff....have a good weekend!
