Movie night


The 'kids' are in the first season of eureka with collin ferguson./oh joy.

Good morning from Klein Texas

Today is going to be a good day... too bad that there is only sunshine in the forecast and a 98% chance of housework, but that is life.

love is always patient

Love is patient and kind.

Young men, and aaronic priesthood have a duty to God.

Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is an adult he will not depart from that path.

Magnify your calling

This could prove to be complicated. Edit html works but compose in wyswyg, not so much.

crappy economy

btw.. anyone noticed that there is a recession? a depression? two more of our acquaintances have lost their jobs yesterday. That is just freaking horrible. Makes me nauseated to think about what would happen.

I talked to the CFO of the house, we have 6 months in reserve and we have 6 months severance package if something were to go wrong. still freaks me out.

I just worry about what we as commoners are going to do to survive it. The one family has enough money to stay in their house until the end of December 2009. I do not think that we are anywhere near out of the woods yet by a long shot. I look at where my kids are and it is definitely affecting them negatively.

The one in college is getting a school backpack for Christmas. the one with a baby is getting work shoes for Christmas. we are practical as always.

Case in point dd#1 called asking for a loan to buy deer tags, dd#2 called asking for loan for Rx copay for bronchitis. I do not think that this will get better soon. DH at HP has lost many of his group in last 12 months. something like one in November, two in December, one in May, one in June and now two in November.

We have always been miserly, since I opted to stay home with the kids since 1999, be even more so, we are buckling down, pairing down our services, cutting back on power consumption, food consumption, clothing allowance, no extras.

That is It!

I am exhausted and I am gonna go to bed. cold Lunches, Homeschool, Math, Spelling, Social Studies, Science, Language, Vocabulary, attendance, Chess Club, Scouts, Geology, Rank & Achievements, Grocery Shopping, Proofing, Missing the DAMN FEDEX man, Ordering, Credit Card Processing, Custom Collages, Operating Systems that refuse to POP UP, websites that refuse to let me edit them, Custom Cropping, Digital Keychains, Kids and Finances, Kids and Sniffles, Freezing my ever loving tush off, cleaning the house, dishes, beds, locating missing DS's, solving European Voltage issues, NO MORE. I can not take one more thing today. I give up.

weight.. weight. weight.

Happy Thursday? One off to school, four still not out of bed. I woke up at the butt-crack of dawn, decided to get to 'work' before teaching today. fun. homeschooling is very difficult, time consuming, morale busting work.

I am probably severely dehydrated but for some reason just can not get the fluids down that I need to, so the weight has crept up to +20 of my goal which is irritating me.
I did get new vits, I am forcing myself to eat breakfast, last night I had a HORRIBLE glucose reaction, had to have three gulps of OJ and then two cheese sticks to stabilize (blood sugar was 52). I had been grazing during the evening, so had no idea why it plummeted. didn't feel a spike from the dry cereal that I had after dinner (dinner was asparagus and mac-n-cheese and a tossed green salad.

so I jumped jump rope yesterday, that was hysterical, nearly peed my pants it was so hard, PITIFUL, I better stick to bike riding. ;-) we are going camping in two weeks, cub scouts rule.
