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:)
