July Fifteenth

Every day I say I am going to write in my blog… and every day I don’t… It’s not that I don’t have anything to write about… I start several entries in my head throughout the day…it may be that the days fly by so quickly… not that I don’t spend half the day on the computer, when I’m not at work… Partly it is because I never have me time… Someone is always home… I think mostly I just got out of routine and I just need to begin and ignore my surroundings for a moment and clear my head… So I won’t say I’m going to write every day now… I’ll just begin for now…and hope this is the beginning of writing again…

I’m Back… Hubby made breakfast of banana nut pancakes and fried eggs… we discussed Halloween ideas with son2… and son1 and fiancé breezed through on their way to register at Target for the wedding and buy pots for son1’s new beer making kit… Hubby is now outside working on his Jeep Liberty… it has been running hot so he is draining some antifreeze and replacing a part… Son2 is on the computer as always… and son3 is watching cartoons…

Son3 is counting the days til his 11th birthday on July 24th… He has put in many gift requests and thinks that is what he is getting… I have ordered his present that was a bit more then I should have spent but he is also requesting a party which we will not be having… I did tell him two of his friends could come over for maybe a sleep over after his birthday… You will have to wait til the birthday too to find out what he got… We didn’t put up the pool this year as his friend has a built in pool and he has been swimming there… Otherwise he is all about the video games, staying up late and sleeping in til noon almost… School starts one month from today…

Son2 also spends all his time on games, readit and his phone… He has been spending time with his friends too this summer… and applying for jobs but no nibbles yet… He’s finishing up the last details for registering for college which starts on August 13th and deciding which classes to add and which to drop even though he has already signed up for classes… He’ll be taking between three and five classes…

Son1 has been living in my front living room for three years now… Twelve weeks til the wedding on Oct. 5th… He’s rarely here except to sleep as weekends are spent with the fiancé and weeknights he’s with friends or at the gym while fiancé continues at cosmetology school… they still both work full time during the day… they will be renting a relative’s house after they are married and are thinking of going to Hawaii for their honeymoon…

Hubby is still not working… two years end of August… well he did work part time last year for six months… He was getting a bit down and discouraged but I yelled at him and he is once again encouraged… thankfully unemployment is still continuing at the moment… He applies at places every day and reapplies at some and still not even a nibble… Two PSA tests since his prostate cancer last fall and he is still cancer free… The boys, pets and house keep him busy but he needs a job if only to talk to grownups again…

I’m still the supervisor of shoes… Sales are up and we’re doing good… I have a new associate starting today… and tonight is friends and family night… extra 5-15% off… so bring your friends and family from 6-9pm… any Sears store… I have a new boss, less then a month now… lots of changes and people moving around at work… so who knows maybe I’ll get out of shoes after 8 years on the island…

I’m back… had to put the laundry in the dryer… about the only chore I do lately… hubby still does the dishes since he’s home… since son1 never cleans up the front living room, I’ve decided not to clean either til he moves out… plus with the boys home for summer I’d have to clean around their bodies laying around the house…

We saw a humming bird in the yard the other day so we put up the feeder although we never saw a humming bird drink from it in the past… this morning we saw two humming birds drinking from it… so cool…

Hubby has just informed me that the part he replaced on his car was the coolant sensor…

Now it is time to water the house plants and get me ready for work…

Happy Journaling…

Oh Linda, always good to see an update from you; I do hope you can get into the swing of things to get a bit of you time and then to have a bit of time to blog now and then.

I can't believe its almost been two years with hubby looking for jobs, I can imagine it can be discouraging at times. Great news about his PSA tests though! praising God for that! Hubby here has had more interviews lately, but no bites yet so we just keep waiting.

I bet it will be good to get your living room back once Son1 is married and setting up his house with his bride. Sounds like a good situation in renting a house from a relative.

Can't believe son1 will be 11 soon! it just seems like you were celebrating his 10th birthday! Time flies! Good too that he has a buddy with a pool (less work and less expense for you :)

I wonder if the college has a work type of program for son2 to participate in?? How exciting though that he is signed up for a few classes; he'll do great!

do take care of yourself!!

betty
