Summer's End...



I have started this entry several times since the end of July and have just not been able to put words down... Of course I don't seem to have any trouble playing games at facebook... So maybe now that school has started we can get back into routine around here... The summer has been go to work, play on the computer, eat dinner, watch movies, play on the computer, sleep.... I did not get any of my projects done that I wanted to... clean out closets, drawers, organize cards and papers... read and study with son3 before third grade started... clean out my kitchen cupboards... exercise... get a suntan... I did open my trunks that I have not opened for over ten years full of cards and letters and mementos from younger years... I even found journals I had written, lol, and don't even remember writing some of the entries, only read a few of the entries.... We watched all of season 1-4 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and are half way through season 5.... Went to a few movies: Ice Age 3, Up, Harry Potter, Night at the Museum, Star Trek, Indiana Jones, Transformers and maybe GI Joe tomorrow...



Of course son1 moved back in with his two dogs and a hamster... He's been moved back in for six weeks but for four of the weeks he went on the road with his dad who drives big rigs... His chance to see the world from California to Texas... Now he has to start his next venture of finding a job... The company that he had just started working for folded due to the economy....
Son2 enjoyed his summer of laziness and video games... And a week in Disneyland with his best friend's family... It was son2's first time to Disneyland, but he made up for it as they were there five days from morning til night...
Sun2 enjoyed his lazy summer also of video gam
es and swimming... although he didn't get as much use of the pool this summer as I was working so much... The pool came down a week ago already...



Now school has been back in session three days already... Time to get all our brains back in working order, lol... Time to get back to blog writing... and homework with son3... this year we will have multiplication, cursive and chapter books to read... we went to back to school night and met his teacher, this is going to be a good one... Even son3 came home on the first day and said she was the his most wonderful teacher ever and he wanted to have her forever... of course he came home on the second day and said she was a bit bossy... and then he came home today and said when she gets mad it's not even as mad as you mom and dad... lol... She has a very structured class with rewards and discipline and said the only way to academics was with class management.... Son2 had homework over the summer for his accelerated English class that he finally got done before he could go to Disneyland... and had to write an essay this week and has another to do this weekend... So he's already tired after his short week of three days back to school.... His schedule is Geometry, PE, Spanish 1, Psych/Sociology, Computers 2, Mod. Wld History accelerated, English 2 accelerated and Biology...


Tomorrow is hubby and mine 17th wedding anniversary so I took a day off from work today so hubby and I could have a day alone with the boys at school... So we went to Lowes and finally found a kitchen garbage can, we have been needing a new one for months, lol and then we went to Borders and Barne's and Nobles just roaming among the books... And then we went to Mimi's Cafe for the first time... It was really good... Hubby had the turkey wrap and I had the BBQ pork sandwich... Then it was off to the grocery store to get some basics and pizza for the boys... Got the boys from school... Fixed the pizza... Started to watch a movie: The Mutant Chronicles, wasn't very good so we didn't finish it... Then we put in I Love You Man, hubby wasn't interested so will watch it later... So we put in Buffy, lol.... Now we are going to make some banana splits and watch another Buffy episode and then it will be time for bed....

Happy Journaling...

Happy anniversary again! I love your school themed graphics. Back in the routine of school~oh how I miss those days. My son's been out of school for 20 years and I still find myself wandering the school supply aisles in August. All those things you didn't get done~you will someday. Maybe you guys will have a couple weeks of heavy snow & you'll all be snowed in. Then you can get to those tasks. (LOL) Linda in WA where we probably will get snowed in

I hope you do get in a good routine with it all. It seems like summer flew by. I never get all my want to's done and somehow the list just gets longer. I wish the boys the best school year ever and good luck to son1 with a new job too!
