Hey all ~ sorry for not being around very much lately. Been kind of a hectic time right now for us. So much going on I don't know whether I am coming or going. Let me see if I can fill you in a bit:
My husband lost his part time job ~ was fired because he told them they had to quit calling him at his main job about things and that his other job was his main job and that they were told before that, and some other things, and they said, ok, your fired. He was so mad!!!! So that is $400 a month we lost, which does hurt. Right now he is not allowed to get any overtime at his main job, which with him loosing his 2nd job, hurts. He is looking for another parttime job but he found out that the job he just got let go from, they put him as not eligble for rehire! Nothing really to do with his work performance, just insubordination! He blew up! He would work later if he could would go in on his days off to help fix the floor machine (and not charge out the time), sometimes even go in on his day off to work when they needed someone. So that is one thing.
One of my dogs has bone cancer and artheritis and she has been going down hill fast and we have scheduled a day to put her out of her pain. We are doing this the 29th of this month. Emotions have been pretty high around the house with seeing her deteriorate and now knowing we only have 3 more weeks left with her. Then finially telling my son about her condition, although I have not told him that we are putting her down, at least not yet, or when.
Found out that my grandmother's health is starting to go a bit downhill also. She is 91 so it is expected, but does not make things any easier though. She is my last living grandparent, so it makes it a bit rough.
My daughter has started marching band practices and camps, so there is a bunch of running there. I am so ready to deal with these teachers (band directors) this year, so they best not mess with her or me for that matter or all hell is going to break looses, especially with how they treated her last year. I am not taking it this year. But she is excited about band. I know they are going to Townsend MD in Oct (I think that is the month) for a regional competition, and they will be going to Indianapolis is Nov for the Grand Nationals competition. They will get to be in the new dome this year instead of the RCA dome. Plus we are now doing fundraisers. Boosters are not real happy that I am doing some fundraisers on my own to help her out, but oh well. I am having a Pampered Chef party next month and instead of earning free stuff, etc, all is going toward her band fees. The band is also doing a Pampered Chef and got a little upset with me because I was not doing their fundraiser. Oh well, guess they will get over it. At least I know 100% of what we earn goes to my daughter. She has also started her driving part of driver's ed.
My son has gotten to sew on his E3 stripe, so we are excited about that.
Our pump went out on our pool, so have not had a pool all summer. Probably won't get another one until after summer. Told my husband since we wanted to do some repairs to the deck, now is the perfect time.
Anyway, that is what we have been up to for the most part. Think about everyone though. Take care and God Bless.
