Crazy thing called life

I know it has been a while since I have had a chance to sit down and write.... Life has been crazy in our house. We have finished Basketball  and  competition season so things in the dance department have slowed down some. But we are now on our way to starting Volleyball Season for KE and still in the midst of Tennis with AM so life is still super busy. I am getting married in 9 days and am totally excited I never really thought I would remarry after the other one was such a miserable fail and so I figured it just want in the cards for me. I guess we will see how this one goes. I am truly scared to death about it to be honest I am so afraid I am going to mess it up. Also our Landlord has decided to sell the house that we live in so I am back to hunting for a rental house that we like and is close to the kids school but I did find a guy who is willing to help us find a house to buy hopefully next year when we get a tax return. I am so glad that the kids are home for good and that they have to spend as little time with their dad as possible. The kids are extremely happy about this. So on the weight lose front I started Weight Watchers and I am in love completely I have lost 8 pounds in 2 weeks and that makes me very happy but since I broke my foot a few weeks ago being stupid and kicking the General Lee on accident  and poof the foot broke... It completely sucks and so I go back next week to see if I can take this dang boot off and go back to running..... Then I will completely be super happy.  In the kids lives KN has decided to try out for officer of the Dixie Belles and is very happy about doing the student choreography Contest next weekend she also got the news the other day she is ranked 19th out of 600 in her class.... Mommy and Papa are very proud of her and her very smart brain. AM is loving tennis even if we did have a match the other morning in 28 degree weather... was to cold to even breath..... He is looking forward to playing next year in High school..... KE well she has been having a rough few weeks and we are doing a lot to work on that.... Counseling starts back next week and Volleyball starts in a few weeks... I am praying this will be what she needs so that she can move on and learn to cope with the grief of losing her sister and the divorce and all that stuff......  As far as me well I am enjoying work even with all the crazy stuff and staying busy helps pass the time ........ Until Next Time.... prayers for a safe and happy week for every one and an amazing spring break to all the teachers

Life is a crazy place......

I have been trying to figure out how to put my feelings over the last week into words and I am still not sure I am there but I am going to try. I always say in our house when it rains it pours and man has is been pouring at our house this week...... OK so I guess I should start at the beginning.....So we had our first weekend home all together.... Which would normally have been awesome... Friday night  we took AM out for dinner for his birthday since he was the only one home..... So then I figured some alone time with each kids would be a great Idea........ So Saturday we took KN looking for Ball Dresses.... This was not fun she is super small and finding one to fit her is going to be a needle in a hay stack but we will finds something eventually...... Sunday we took KE to Walmart to spend her CHRISTmas money which was fun..... Once we got home it all hit the fan...... Sunday was also the Anniversary of my daughters passing 7 years ago everyone says it get easier with time.....I call bull shit cause it doesn't seem to be getting any easier for me... I have done counseling and the whole 9 yards and I am thinking it will just take time...... Then Papa's so called sister called and said that his dad had caught himself on FIRE......... And so then her DRAMA from that ensued ....... Yes he did catch himself on fire while smoking ..... Luckily they are minor burns and he will be OK ....Then on Monday 2 of the kids got sick fever, sore throat, crud and now throwing up...... So no work for me on Monday which was kind of nice to have an extra day........ Tuesday morning I come to work like any normal day start getting stuff ready in my classroom and my phone rings..... Its my dad calling to let me know that my Stepmother had passed away the night before......... From an infection on her foot........ so now I will be spending my Friday at a funeral which I completely hate.......

AM Birthday today

I can not believe that my son is 14 today....... 14 years ago on a Thursday morning I woke up in pain having contractions and decided to go see my OB since I wasn't due for another 2 weeks. She told me I was dilated to an 5 and to get over the the hospital and she would be there in a few minutes to break my water. After only a few hours he was here.... all 8 pounds of him and he was so fat and cute and bald......... As he has grown up he has always been a very sweet tender hearted kid who care about everyone and has never met an enemy at all.....He is in band and plays tennis and is now officially taller then I am and I look back on that day think this time has passed way to quickly. He is always my good kid I never have to ask him to do anything twice. He has struggled with reading and his dyslexia and his dysgraphia but is getting better everyday. He is a bright kid who just needed a little help with his reading and writing. He has grown to love tennis and does very well at it... Who would have seen that coming.... He has also liked playing his Clarinet up until this year and he just doesn't love it anymore.... I remember when he was little and I would ask him what he wanted to be when he was older and he would always tell me a Vet because he loves animals..... Still today this is what he wants to be when he grows up....... His love for 4 legged animals and even ones without feet is great we call him the dog whisperer because animal that seem to dislike everyone else seem to love him..... So now we are looking next year to high school and the things he wants to do with his life... I know college is in there and he wants to go out of state which I am not sure how this mommy is going to handle that but I am sure he will be able to do anything he puts his very strong and smart mind to........Happy Birthday my son I am so proud of you

Finals Week

As I sit here in my classroom and help all these amazing kids get ready for finals this week my heart is sad and heavy. I have prayed and cried for the families in CT that lost loved ones on Friday. I know first hand the lose of a child can be so overwhelming and completely deplete your soul to the core. I did not lose my child in a tragedy such as this but I do know the feeling of waking up one morning and by the middle of the day your world shattered and you have to go home without your child.I prayed today that we as teachers, parents, and all adults have the ability to let these children who have seen these horrific events are aloud to talk about how  they are feeling and that we have the correct answers that do not make the fear worse. The 23 little souls that went to be with the Lord on Friday are looking down on us.... They are now happy, safe and have no memories of what happened to them. Only we are left to grieve them. We had a very uneventful weekend in our house and the TV was not on very much. My children has school Christmas parties they went to and spent some much needed down time with their friends. It was James birthday on Friday and we went to dinner on a date.. and Saturday we went to my dads house and spent the day with him.I know that on Tuesday the custody papers will be filed and all the other crap will be over. I know that I could care less if I get anything else for CHRISTmas other then my children HOME with me all the time........This week is going to be crazy hectic but Friday my best friend will be here and all will be right in my world.......I pray you all have a Merry CHRISTmas and the Your Santa brings you everything you have been wishing for.......

May peace be with all of us as educators and parents and may we all do everything in our power to keep our kids safe......AMen

OMG it was a crazy weekend...... We had 3 CHRISTmas performances that I am glad are all done. We had to be up at 4 in the morning on Saturday... God bless my poor family....We dropped KN off at the high school at 5:30 and then headed downtown to see the parade. It is the first time any of us have ever been to The Children's Medical Center Parade.....  It was really neat to see all the big balloon floats like they do in the Macy's parade.....Papa and I enjoyed it alot and KN had a blast walking the parade..... When we picked her back up from school we had to head straight to AG dance performance and watch her a great video and pictures from it......Then we got to go watch KE sign with her elementary school Choir at our cities Christmas tree lighting..... they did fireworks this year and had Tim Urban there from American Idol which the kids all thought was so cool... I am not an AI fan so I had no clue who he was...... We got home so late but went and had Mexican food for dinner which is my total favorite..... Sunday we decided to have a lazy day and so I did get laundry done so no one had to go to work naked which I am sure everyone is thankful for. We also went to visit Papas stepson  and got to talk to him for a little bit. Other then that Sunday was spent in bed doing nothing. I wish all Sundays could be like that but oh well ....... Monday was a great day I worked out and didn't drink any cokes..... and got in most of my water and got to do the Reproductive System with my 7th graders..... I hate doing the Reproductive System ........Today has been nice and slow so far.....on the Custody battle front he has signed the papers and so praying all this crap will be over soon
