Wow...it's been a long while since I have posted anything! I guess I've been a little busy. Since I last wrote, we have done lots! The most important thing is we have gone through the steps to become a foster family! I can't wait for that journey to begin! It will be exciting, I'm sure!

Everything else is about the same, really. Boone is still training to be a therapy dog. Grandbabies are growing - might have another one coming!!! Hubby is still as awesome as ever...my anxiety and depression are better...not the best yet, but definitely better.

Not much else to write about....so I'll go now...

Obedience Training

So...we have a new dog...Boone. He is my emotional support animal and I am training him to be my therapy dog, as well. I want him to come to school with me on a regular basis. Last night was obedience training. I am so proud of him! Even though he is a beagle - and wants to be nosy about everything, he is still learning!! So proud!

Wow...Haven't Written In a Long While!

Wow! Didn't realize it was that long ago since I have written! SO many things have happened!

Little ones have obviously grown! That baby is now on his way to two years old! And cute as the dickens! As are all five of the grandbabies, of course.

Then my former step-dad...I say former because I have disowned him...he was convicted of child molestation and sentenced to federal prison. I have one sister out of five brothers and sisters that will talk to me. But, oh well, my daughter and nieces are safe...

I recently had a major mental breakdown...I am getting over it now...I needed some time of work and a wonderful new emotional support dog to help, but, yeah...that was fun...

I have four wonderful children...one is not talking to us...don't know what his deal is...guess he's just growing up and learning to live as an adult and all...he'll come around...

I'll try and write more...but, who knows...it may be another several years!

Whatta Week...

What a week this has been...last Tuesday, my daughter was fondled by my stepfather...when she decided to warn others that it happened, she was basically disowned by half the family...pretty much told that she was making things up...never mind that her grandfather was her hero...and she had no reason to make anything like this up...but that's what happened...then on Friday, I get a call from her...she is telling me that she doesn't want to live....that she wants to die...I race across town to get to her before she does anything to herself...then take her to the emergency room where she tells them the same thing...which leads to her being admitted to a behavioral needs hospital...she was pretty much locked up in a psych ward for four days...she was diagnosed with major depression and anxiety...then this Tuesday we welcomed our 5th grandchild...a little boy named Jameson Scott...a handsome little man welcomed to the world by his big brother who happily proclaimed "My brother! He's out!!"
Yeah...Roller coaster emotions this week...

Disturbing Events...

So...things have been going pretty decent....until yesterday. Yesterday we went to see my step-dad. By we, I mean my daughter and I. While there, my step-dad decided it was okay to try and grab my daughter's butt...He actually put his hand down the back of her pants and tried to grab her butt. Then we find out that he has done this to two of my nieces, as well....We think that he has been doing this because of his illness. It requires him to be on oxygen...and his oxygen levels have been off....but still that doesn't really make things any better...it really doesn't help...I don't know what to do about it...

Normal? Is This What Normal Feels Like?

I haven't posted in awhile. Not because things have been bad - just the opposite. Things have been really good. I had one crying fit in the last few weeks. And that was brought on by genuine concern for my husband - not anxiety or depression, but concern. I haven't had an anxiety attack in a very long while. This is great news for me...I haven't even been too anxious lately...
I don't know what the difference is. I have been taking my meds as required - but have been doing that for awhile so that's not different. I have been using the techniques - the deep breathing, the imagery....all of it...maybe that's the difference...
But I think what the real difference is that I have just had more faith in myself. I know I can do things...I know I can be happy...I know I am doing some good things...
And today...my house is all cleaned up - for the first time in months....summer school is going great - just as it should be - I have been doing regular lessons and getting through all of them...
All in all, things have just been going great...and I don't wanna say too much because I'm afraid I'm gonna jinx something....

And there's a lot to smile about...

1. Getting stuff done!
2. House is clean!
3. Had a great time at Special Olympics - things were slow - but perfect for Spenser and I.
4. Michael Martin Murphy and Wildfire...'nuff said!
5. Montgomery Gentry!!!
Great Riverfest week!!

Last Week Of School....

Just realized it's been a week since I posted anything. It's been a busy week. Last day of school for kids was yesterday and for teachers was today. I will have to go back tomorrow because I didn't get everything done. I am moving classrooms once again and still have a mess in both classrooms. I even got to work early this morning so I could get it done! Oh well....it will get done!
Had to say goodbye to two wonderful teachers today. One is retiring and one is moving back to administration. Had a great talk with both of them. I really think both of them are wonderful people and we have truly lost two wonderful people who absolutely love their kids..
Karen is still trying to tell me how to run my summer school...I don't know why she thinks she has a say, but that is what she thinks...I know that she is trying to help, but I'm going to do thing my way and it's going to be successful.
Had two little Russian girls sign up today...they know very, very, very, very little English. It should be fun to work with them.
Had a wonderful little guy enroll this week, as well. He will be my favorite student and will be teacher's pet. I can't help it - it's my grandson, Jaxon! He will be coming on Thursday's - and he is very excited about it! He is coming complete with pencil box, pencil, eraser and flash cards!

Things that made me smile this week....
  1. Jaxon will be in my summer school!
  2. I will have two Russian girls in summer school!
  3. Hubby is officially cancer free!!!
  4. Wonderful dinner with most of the Wichita kids.
  5. Our flash mob turned out absolutely wonderful! And the kids LOVED it!!
