The Boulevard

My husband and the boys go to the drive inn almost every weekend in the spring and fall, they have learned to buy cheap and sell to make a profit. Today I went to bring them breakfast (a Sunday drive inn tradition) and stayed to people watch. Wow the things you see there, all I can say is there is way to much spandex! You really must see to believe.

Emergency call from Shawnee Police

Well lets just say my week did not end on a positive note. Teenager problems continue but if being scared straight really works we are going to find out. I won't go in to the details but lets just say it was not a bright spot in my day. The boy is now grounded, no phone, no car, and he will be getting a job this summer so he can get a touch of reality, wish us all luck.
Again the house is a mess and still can't see the gardens from the weeds, maybe today I will take back control of that, or better yet send the teenager out to do it:) Enjoy the weather out there today, other than all the cottonwood flying around it is beautiful.
Oh and should let you all know teenager is alive and well and not in jail, he actually seems very willing and ready to accept his punishment.

A small Wednesday rant

Can't even think of a name for this post, work is actually going well for the moment it is the rest of my life I feel I have lost control of. Lets start with the teenager, I don't even know what to say but he is not living up to his potential at school, I am making that sound nice, he is actually not even doing the work at all and I am at a lose, have tried pleading, lecturing, stressing and encouraging and nothing is working! The worst part is this is my child who I always felt we had this great relationship and could talk about anything, but now nothing,
Other than that the house is a mess again, and i cant see the gardens from all the weeds!

For my Uncle

When we got together last weekend for Joe's graduation I spoke with Mud about these darn blogs that know one is keeping up with and how much I missed them. I of course threw my sister under the bus and stated how tired I was of seeing the Diet Coke/Bacon can, and he informed me how tired he was with the snowball update:) Anyhoo I will try to keep up with this little blog. So on to what I have been up to.... well working, a lot! I finally have 1 therapist hired and hope to have my other by the middle of June. I did find out today that being in charge is not all that it is cracked up to be, there was someone who was hurt because he did not get a promotion in to my dept. and I just feel awful about it. He is a great employee and a good friend but I decided it would be better to go another way, and now I have to live with that, not easy. On a positive note I did move into my office and with a few additions it will be up to par. Gotta run I am sure there is laundry or tv watching to do:)

Snowball update

Yep as of this month no more 2ND mortgage!! That payment will go straight to the Durango and hopefully that will be gone by the end of summer, I will probably not make my deadline of my 40Th birthday but I am sure going to give it my all. My taxes this year were more than I expected so that will delay things a little but I have faith I will still get it done before 2011 at least. Hope everyone is having a great day out there the weather here is gorgeous.

Happy Birthday Andrew

Today is AJ's 8th birthday we started out the morning with presents and pancakes, later movie and pizza I am sure. I chose this picture because it reminds me of my little boy and my Bobo who is nearing the end of his ride, he will be missed by us all. Have a great day out there.

Another interview

Okay today interviewed for the lead postion at my job, I was very tired due to late stop last night so basicallly tried to not yawn too much. I am really okay either way, but would love a little more cash to work my Dave plan. Will update as soon as I hear. Love to you all.

Not for me.

Well I didn't get the job I interviewed for last week, not really surprised I have worked for this company long enough to know that when a job is posted 9 times out of 10 they have already filled it in their minds. The fact that I didn't get that job just puts another opportunity in front of me, I will be applying for the Supervisor position at my office so wish me luck. I wont be losing any sleep either way, and I guess thats what counts, these days just happy to have a job where the checks clear:)

My day and stuff...

Interviewed for a different job today with my current employer. The funny thing is when I applied for this a different and possibly better oppurtunity presented itself, weird how life works. I have decided that either way I will be happy, even if I stay doing what I am doing now.

On my last post Denny asked if I had a written budget, sort of would be my answer. I really need to work on that part I think it would help keep me focused and more importantly in control of my money.

P.S If anyone nows of a good counter I can add to my blog I would appreciate it, I tried to upload a couple but could not get them to work.

Okay, so I really want to be debt free by my birthday so I have decided to enlist the help of all my family and friends, no I do not want money, I want encouragement. I am going to start a countdown clock with the total I still owe and even though it is embarrassing I need the support. Here we go!
