First days....great!!

Lil one....first day at kindergarten.

Big en'.....first day at intermediate school.

Mama.....first day at new work.

So far....triple thumbs up!!

We played the high/low game at dinner and here are the results:

Mama: Low- missing coworkers rolling their eyes at terrible sense of humor.
High-everyone was very nice, answered all questions and were patient with me.

Big en': High-got to eat lunch with all her friends from elementary school that she missed during the summer.
Low-having trouble operating that silly locker.

lil one: High-going to recess!!
Low-going back in from recess...

The morning went pretty smooth. We pulled off some last minute shopping this weekend (thanks Christi for that 20% off coupon....saved...well....20%!!!). We laid out all of our clothes, had lunch ready to throw together and mama's power drink (Bad Girl) in the fridge!

Intermediate school was first on the list since we didn't get to meet the teacher last week at Meet the Teacher Night.....since the school didn't have the classroom lists assigned just yet. Eek!!

We got there early and beat the traffic....straight to classroom to find other girls we knew in our homeroom class!! Hapiness. Kisses by all, pics taken....tears fell to the floor by mama. Ugh.

Next stop...Elementary. Very impressed with the organization of the parking, dropping off and traffic control. There were employees of the school, volunteer parents and plenty of police...which I'm sure were at every school.

Yes, lil one led mom straight to class room, lil one runs right in her classroom like she owns it and tells mom to hit the road! I think a couple more of those tears fell.

Off to mom's first day.....fretted over payroll until one, emailed to main office and was much much happier after that. Rumor has it that mama is going to the main office for lunch and orientation on second day.

Stay tuned for updates!
Will add pics too!!

New Job!!

After two crazy weeks of trying to find myself....
....a new job found me .

Yes its true. I am starting a new job on Monday. I am nervous and excited at the same time. I have been at my current job for six and a half years. I am going to miss my coworkers that I think of like family.

Stay tuned for details.

I'm so bad with keeping up on this thang.

The girls went to Branson, MI for a week with their Dad. Me super missed me some little girls.

They just got back home tonight. Yea!!

I spent a lot of time at work and play practice this week.

I am playing the role of Miss Willlie in The Curious Savage. So far so good. It's not a big part, but still a good one. I'm used to being cast as a dingish blonde...but this role is different. More on that later.

For now.....off to bed.

Diary of a Pool #1

We have a shell for an above ground pool in the backyard complete with a deck built around it. there is an electrical outlet near by and we also have a working water well.

We got tired of looking at it.

Here we go....

This pic is actually after the third time we've hopped in there and worked a bit. We're gonna take it slow this month since it is so hot outside.

....stay tuned for updates!! Hopefully before we know it, we'll be making a splash!

Been Awhile...

....Since my last post....BUT

maybe, just maybe....tee, hee, hee.....

I'll keep up with it this time.

Today was a super busy and tiring day.

The girls stayed with dad the last two nights even though it is "my weekend". I suffered from a horrible allergy attack over the last couple of days. Notagood.

I walked in the night clinic, threw thirty bucks at the check in lady....within twenty minutes doc hooked me up with some good stuff. Yea....

So I went home, called Mr. Dad and they were at the grandparents fixin' to walk out the door to eat. He offered to keep them one more night to further my rehabilitation. I wasn't exactly thrilled, yet I didn't hesitate to konk right out.

So I awake this morn, test out the new allergy drugs (yes plural) two this morn and one more to pick up from the pharmacy as soon as I find that silly insurance card.

I picked up some lunch meat, bread, apples, chips and propell waters (that were on sell 3 for $10) and off to meet sweet Nana at the zoo.

Pics here.

Fun times by all. I played with the telephoto lens most of the time. Something isn't right with it. The manual switch is the only mode that it will work in.....and apparantly with my bad eyes....

The wide angle is great, but the camera's flash won't work with either lens.

Back at home--lil one and I stumbled in for a nap...she spent three seconds in protest, followed by a yawn and ended with the sound of sweet snoring.

We awoke to find me running late for a bacherlorette party that I should be attending and taking pics at....yet my head is back in full blown allergy head. Yuk.

I managed to wiggle my way over there and had quite the shock as to the theme.......we won't go there in this family friendly blog....that at the moment is private. But still........

So now, I'm loading the pics....that I don't appear in any of them....and I will appreciate my subjects very much for all the entertainment. I'll still be giggling tomorrow.

Arrival at home....first night to run next door and care for the animals that belong to the neighbors that went out of town today. Sweet family.....3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 bunnies, 1...yep...1 fish, dad, mom, 4yo bro, 2 yo bro, and one in mama's belly--gender undetermined at this point.

For now....off to bed.
