rain!!!

its been raining nonstop since yesterday afternoon...we needed it...but we havent seen rain like this in a while...the kids are going crazy in the house..lol...i told them to go play in it...i dont care, they wash...i played in it as a kid, why cant they? well, maybe not steven, he has the sniffles...

My mood is finally starting to lift up again...things just got too overwhelming for a while...they tend to do that when i start thinking of cold weather, heating bills, halloween costumes, and xmas approaching...i dont mind all those things, they just cost more money, and im not in a position to make more to cover those costs....so it makes me start to worry...i try not to...

the school week was good for the boys...they had alot of homework, but thats ok with me...the more homework they have, the better they do in school...lol, just kind of makes it hard when im the only adult here, and we have hours of homework to do, andi still have to make dinner...but i usually work it out..i help them this the things they understand less, and while im making dinner, they do the work that is a little easier for them...Logan does some of his numbers and letters backwards, and honestly, i have no idea why the teachers havent corrected it before now...so, when i check over his work, i look for the things he is making mistakes on, and i make him practice...he dosnt seem to mind it at all...he likes the extra time with mom...He brought home a school library book the other day...its the first chapter book he has ever brought home, and he couldnt even get through the first page...so i decided to set aside a half hour a night and read it to all the boys..they really enjoyed it...ive always read to them, but it was usually shorter books...i hope i can finish it before he has to take it back....i should be able to...he had his eyes checked at school the other day...even though i had them checked recently and he now has glasses...the teacher seems to think that is his biggest problem..but why would the eye doctor be so far off...i dont have the results back yet...

we dont have anything planned for this weekend...the brakes on the van are not working so well...so untill i can figure out a solution to that, we arent going very far...its ok though, we are getting use to it...ive been walking to go get them from school...it gets easier every time...but dominic dosnt do too well with it..his legs start cramping up later in the day from all the walking...

i havent been sleeping well at all...im totally exhausted..i did finally get a little sleep lastnight....but before that, i wasnt falling asleep till 3 am, then having to get back up at 6:30 with the boys....i think i just got myself way off schedule over the summer...i got use to staying up and sleeping in...but, i guess if it dosnt get any better, iwill make an appointment to see a doctor...

i applied to some places in town for work...none of them are hiring at the moment..but it is worth a try anyway..you never know when there could be a job opening...my next wave of applications i think will be to banks in the area...i would love to work in a bank...the ones here in town arent hiring right now...

so anyway, thats my update...
