February Twelfth…

A whole month later and what have we been up to…

Son2 celebrated his 17th birthday… We had a family party and next Saturday he is having a get together with friends here at the house…

After 18months, son1 has moved out with a roommate into a two bedroom apartment and I have reclaimed my front living room…

It has been super foggy but we are finally seeing some sun… Hubby and I were getting in a lot of walks before Christmas but have slacked off so one day we went on a nice long walk to see son1’s apartment complex… that’s it on the other side of those trees on the right…

Son2 has joined tennis at school…

Son3 got his report card: Reading~C, Language Arts~C, Writing~C, Spelling~B, Math~B, Science~ B, Social Science~A,

Hubby is still job hunting… Unemployment money runs out this month but his case is still open and the extensions were voted to continue so hopefully he will be approved to continue receiving payments… However a job would be good too as he really needs to get out of the house, lol…

My supervisor finally found out she got the position she applied for so I applied for her position, shoe lead supervisor… Heard quite a few others also applied… I’m glad for some competition… Plus not quite sure I want the position… I’ve been on the fence for the last six years of becoming a lead again or not… so am leaving it to faith on whatever happens… meanwhile we are still behind in shoes and inventory is only a few weeks away…

Son3 continues to have so much homework… they have a three day weekend this weekend for Lincoln’s birthday and he brought home his class work from Thursday and a five paragraph book report to do… We got them done… and he had to make his valentine box at home because they don’t have time in class because they are so busy doing work… He also signed all his valentine cards for his party on Monday…

Friday I only had to work til noon, today I was off and tomorrow I only work 6-10am to set the ad… Son1 is coming over tomorrow to do laundry and work on a friend’s car, his tools are still in the garage… We’re watching CSI and The Mentalist… and son2 is fixing some pie… I’m so frustrated I still haven’t lost the 8lbs I gained over the holidays… I was still tracking my eating for three weeks but the last week I have not nor have I worn my pedometer… Starting over with getting my brain wrapped around it… Son2 has lost five pounds since joining tennis…

Shows are over and off to eat pie and go to sleep…

Happy Journaling…

It has been a while since you put an entry in here. Good to hear the boys did so well with their report cards. All that homework must be paying off. It seems kids have a lot more to learn than we used to so it means more homework. Though I do remember many hours around the table doing homework with mine and that was many years ago. Its hard to believe Son 2 is 17 already! He's getting so grown up. Hope all goes well with how ever the job goes. I'm praying your hubby will find a new job soon.

Happy belated birthday to your son2! It just seems like yesterday I remember reading he was 16. Time does fly!! I bet it is nice to get more space back with son1 on his own again and I am sure he is enjoying being on his own again. I know it has got to be frustrating for both you/hubby on the job front, I know of someone who had gotten another extension on his unemployment (worked in IT) and he's been unemployed for longer than your hubby. So hang in there! Good job for the kids (and you) on the grades!! Diligence and hard work does pay off! It does make you wonder why they can't get all their work done in class that a Valentine box had to be made at home. I remember making boxes during art period at school.

Hang in there too with the weight. Go back to what worked before and try to get back on that eating/exercise schedule. With spring approaching, I bet it might be easier to get back on track and get those pounds off.

Good for son2 with tennis! What a fun sport!
