Everything on Thursday...


So I heard it was Fall, not that we would know as it's still in the 100's here... we're promised the 80's next week...
Today has been a whirlwind of a day...
Got son2 and hubby off to school and work and then got me and son3 ready for school and work... Did more homework this morning to make up for him being too tired last night... studied 6x, did I mention he passed his 5's, studied his spelling words and read his library book... Today his school had their Jogathon and his class had a movie party... He brought his pillow, a soda and popcorn... he brought the Disney Mulan movie but they watched Hannah Montana, he said he loved it, lol...
It was just me at work today til 3pm... I spent all day helping customers and opening boxes, made a bit of a dent in the pile that I am two weeks behind in... saw son1 before he started work at noon... I still see him every day at work even if it's just in the parking lot...
After lunch I got a phone call from son2's high school... remember his friend and then son2 is friend's with the girlfriend well seems son2 and friend got into an altercation after school yesterday that son2 did not tell us about and the others parents went to the school to report it... I support the school in their zero tolerance rule of fighting but also seems the school wants all three of them to never speak to each other again... felt like I was on the Jerry Springer show not that the school was giving any details but felt like they were more complaining about son2 being friends with the girlfriend than the issue at hand: fighting..... but son2 says his friendship with them had been ending anyway so he isn't hurt too much by it... makes it difficult with his group of friends however since some are still friends with friend... son2 says he had been making some new friends this year however so things are changing...
So got home from work, had long talk with son2 and hubby...
Poor son3 got his homework interrupted... so he got a late finish on homework... then hubby had to go to a meeting at work... fixed pot pies for me and son2, son3 had waffles... haven't seen son1, now that he's working and has money again, don't see him as much...
Got a package yesterday from UPS and one today of all the Halloween stuff I ordered... was wondering where the missing package was that the packing slip was in so was online researching not realizing that the third package was sitting on the porch as the UPS man had come a second time today...
Worked on my 15 minute challenge for the Motivation Station blog... you have to go The Motivation Station comments to see what that was...
Everything is on TV tonight... FlashForward, CSI, Supernatural, Bones and Fringe... I have two TV's taping but haven't figured out how the boys new digital TV's work while taping with the VCR as you have to change the TV to vid and then you get a blue screen for playing a VHS or DVD but haven't experimented to tape... so will have to watch CSI online... hopefully...
Someday I would like to get a DVR but not yet.....
Now just waiting for hubby to get back from his meeting... he and son1 both have a day off tomorrow... I have a short day and get off at 1:30... yay.... then we're all off on Saturday... Whatever shall we do.....
But first I have to find something colorful for the Color Carnival... hmmmm...

Happy Journaling....

Would you believe that here at the camper there are even 15 min challenges. This weekend I'm packing up some summer things to take home with me. The storage here is limited so alot goes back and forth. My car trunk seems to be my mini storage area. It's overcast yet this morning and in the 60's we are hoping for some sunshine today. Have a great Friday!

poor son2. I think high school years are filled with so much trauma/drama. I have to agree, the school needs to focus on the fighting issue of it and not with the kids agreeing not to speak to each other again, that would be a hard thing for anyone to do especially if they are in classes together, etc. glad son2 is looking into making other friends; does he like any hobbies to join any clubs at school or something to expose him to a different set of friends?

yep; I'm wondering where fall is too. yesterday it was 106 degrees here. But I did see a leaf fall the other day :)

I do hope you have a restful Saturday and you guys go out and do something fun :)

congrats for son3 getting up past the 5s for his times table! you and him are working hard on this :)

So with Son1 working does that mean you're alone in the house on Wednesday's? LOL! I'm sorry to hear about the thing with Son2..he seems like such a nice kid. Hopefully making new friends will help the situation. It's rough out there these days for teenagers. I'm glad I'm not one of them. When I was in school it all boiled down to how many Jantzen sweaters you had. My friends were all in the same boat as me~we were lucky to have 1 of them. So we weren't in the "high society" group but we also didn't care because we had each other. Hugs to all and don't forget Holly. Linda

Errr, I don't even want to discuss the way the school mishandle things like that. It's one of my pet peeves!

I hope you have a great weekend! Up for a GIT challenge tomorrow? I didn't say I wished you a relaxing weekend! ;-)
