another day another dollar....or not

i have been much busier then normal recently...ive been babysitting alot, and helping a friend with her running around, cuz she dosnt like to drive in Kalamazoo...so, last week logan had his eye appointment...he needs glasses...they say his actual vision is fine, but he has a stigmatism, so the glasses will help his eyes strain a little less, so they dont get as tired as they do now...at first he picked out some darker framed ones...and with his complexion and hair color they didnt look right...so then he picked out blue cuz hes a boy...but they looked kinda girly on him, so we found him some silver frames, and they looked incredible on him...such a handsome little man...ive been trying to get him all excited about them, and telling how cool it will be...i think he is getting there.lol...they are suppose to call this week for him to go in for his fitting and to pick them up...i remember my first glasses were ugly plastic bug eyed things..lol....i have pictures to burn with me in them! so, he only has to wear them for inside activities...he can take them off to go play in...good, seems how glasses are expensive...



Saturday I went to a wedding shower for Nicks cousins fiancee...it was alot of fun...lots of people there...i feel like i fit right in and i love that....i rode up there with some of the girls...thats a long drive...well, not so bad from Kalamazoo...but when you factor in the drive from Bangor to Kalamazoo, it adds alot of extra...we were gonna stay up there a little longer, but i needed to get back to pick the boys up...Denny was throwing himself a bday party, and i didnt want the kids around it...his parties get way too wild....



sunday the boys and i cleaned...they got both the bedrooms clean, and i got all the laundry and my room cleaned...they all helped sort socks, and put laundry away...they werent too happy about it, but they didnt fuss too much...well michael did, but he came around a little later when he seen everyone was helping but him...



today i got a ton of stuff done too...cleaned out old papers, dusted, sorted through some kitchen stuff...and alot more...i have managed to fill my garbage bin already, and the garbage man dosnt come till thursday..lol...ive been a cleaning machine!!! its so nice to walk into the house and not see so much clutter...its hard to keep up with the paper clutter that comes home with the boys from school...i have a hard time deciding what to keep, and what to toss....i try to keep some of them so i can track the progress through out the year...but i was keeping too much...



the boys have had a ton of homework lately...logans sightword list this time is huge....he gets so frustrated..the twins usually have math homework...Michael dosnt come home with much...so, he reads a little while im helping the other boys...he tried helping steven today, but he kept giving him the answers, so i had to make him stop...it was so cute that he was trying though...what a great big brother!!!



i ran into two friends today...my friend Theresa...i use to be really close to...her kids go to school with mine now...im really kind of excited about it...hopefully i will have someone to hang out with a little bit...and Eddie stopped by too...i havent seem him since before November...he just kind of disappears when the mood strikes him...he was one of the ones that helped me get through the really rough times when Denny left...he was a good friend through it all...him and Theresa have kids together...we were all friends back in the day...



i got some flowers today....Nick is so good to me....he always knows just when to throw that kind of stuff in there...ive never had anyone treat me the way he does...he is just so awesome...i miss him...i cant wait for this deployment to be over...then he can come home...that will be an awesome day...here is a pick of my flowers!!! so springy and pretty...einstein wouldnt leave them alone long enough for me to get a pic without him in them..lol..

Oooh pretty flowers.
You really just take my breath away. I know how nuts boys can be. I just deal w/ about 12 of them weekly @ scouts. I always come home completely at a loss for words...and this is HUGE for me. You seem to handle it all w/ comedic grace. I heart that about you.

The flowers are beautiful!!
