Well, hello there….

Hey everyone, how’s it been? I know I know, I promised to start blogging again, and well, I haven’t. I just don’t have much to write about. Well, I probably do, by, I think I have writer’s won’t thaw out, need a jack hammer block. I can hardly put two sentences together when it comes to this thing. I’m not sure why. I think some of it has to do with, this was a blog for working through my grief and remembering JT. Then it turned to Tori-Beth. So, I really don’t know what direction I would like for this to go. I am still figuring that one out. I want this blog to be upbeat, quirky, witty, and maybe a little sassy. Kinda like me. LOL You may or may not have noticed that JT’s tab is gone. Someone stole his picture to enter a contest. I was not very happy about that. It made me a little sick actually. Now, if they would have asked me, I am sure that I would have had no problem with it. I don’t know who the person was and one of my friends came across it. Otherwise, I would have never known. But, the thought of someone just taking his picture well, that was way out of line. But, this is the internet, and I guess I was going to have to deal with that sooner or later. The company was very kind and took the picture down immediately and apologized profusely. I am very endeared to them now. They had compassion I didn’t think a big company would have. For that I am grateful.

The kids are doing great. Most of them are doing good in school and Mikayla just got TERRIFIC kids award. For being respectful. And her Teacher wrote some awesome comments on her interim. She said she was a joy to work with and she catches on easily and has a gift for learning. She also said she told her she should be proud of herself and just look at her and smiled that big pretty smile of hers. Yep, that’s my girl. LOL Ashley finally gets it and is doing great in school. All A’s and B’s. Took a lot of work to get her back to that point but, she is doing really well, and I am proud of her. Stacey well, she’s trying. She thinks it’s a socialization club at school. She had some terrible grades, but, she is bringing them up and is excited about it. Well, every test that she does good on she shoves in my face. LOL As a side note, I don’t care what the grade is, as long as they try their hardest and put the work into it. That is the key. You have to try. And she wasn’t. But, she is now. I am proud of her for that.

Ashley is in a big girl relationship, and I still don’t know how I feel about that. They have been going out well, sitting in my house when they are allowed to see each other, although they have been on two “dates” for 6 months now. Her boyfriend is very respectful and follows my rules, and that doesn’t make him run away. Oh well, I tried. Nah, just kidding. I really like him. We have known him for a long time. And well, this is crazy, long before me, Mike (my husband) used to date his mom. Now, how crazy is that??? But, he is a nice boy, so, I guess he can stay.

Tori-Beth, she is just a joy. She does crazy, goofy stuff everyday to make me smile. She doesn’t talk much, because Ashley taught her sign language, and she likes to use that. Although she will let you know what she wants or needs and she doesn’t need to use words. She is good like that. She loves to dance. When ever any kind of music comes on you can see her just a rockin and a rolling to it. Commercials are her thing. She loves them.

Oh yeah, Mikayla started AWANA last week and loves it and can’t wait to go back. I also started Bible Study last week and can’t wait to go back. LOL I have been looking for a Bible study for a long time. And am so happy that I have found one. We are starting from the beginning. I like that too. Mikayla’s first verse to learn. John 3:16 of course. Although she says Jack 3:16 but, I am hoping she gets it soon. I know she will.

Hubby man, is laid off. Not really happy about that, but, that’s ok, the Lord provides and everything is paid up, so, we have all of our needs met. Our van broke down and we are back to using the Jimmy again. The scary Jimmy. It scares me badly, but, we do have transportation, so, that is a blessing. If you all could see that thing you would know what I mean by scary.

Well, I guess that is it. You all have a great day, week, and month, because, who knows when I will pop up again. LOL
