STILL KICKIN' HERE

Yes again I have disappeared into that great sunset in the sky....I just cannot seem to have the ability to juggle too many things at one time.  A bit of the chaos was that we have now finished two children from the great walls of high school at the same time. For most families having one child graduate is alot of work and insanity and such....well try two at a time....and no it is not easier because they do not have the same friends, they do not have the same interests or likes, and they have totally opposite plans for the summer and the future. So it just made life unbelieveable for a while. I am really hoping that this is the end of the insanity and life gets back to some sort of normalcy. Okay then..... We have to have professional pictures made of the graduates....the school does not provide pics of them in cap and gowns.... sorry low school budgets in the sunshine state....so we are having them professionally done and I will show them off as soon as we get something.

     The we had a family emergency....my hunnie's aunt in tennessee had a heart attack and fell straight forward onto her face....(she is about 87 years old)... well she fractured her entire face and had a stroke afterwards. So one of my sons had to drive my mother in law and her daughter to tennessee because they did not want to make the drive themselves to see my mother in law's sister. No one really thought that she would make it. Well through the power of miracles she did....they are waiting on doing surgery on her because she has diabetes and right now they are trying to control that. But Thank God everything else looks good and she is on the road to recovery. So that put a spin on everything here.

     Then as usual you know that we had to have car trouble....what would life be like if I did not have car trouble? Well this time the van would not stay on. After testing tons of things it turns out that some major wire was shorted out and melting down nicely that allowed the battery to charge from the alternator. Yes another mess we got ourselves into. But it seems that got fixed then we had to fix my sister in laws car. Now mind you......... she has not worked in God only knows how long....and is really not helping out the way she said she would. So of course the nice people we are, we put up the money for her new starter and pulleys so that her car could get fixed. Now ask me if we could afford it........NO...... BUT ........ we helped her out anyway.....hoping she would get a job.

     Now High School classes were over two weeks ago, elementary and middle schools end this tuesday....... then the nephew will be home all day. Lord I do not think I have the energy to keep up with him this summer. He has really been testing his limits lately....something has gotten into him and it has been interesting trying to figure out what is going on.

     Now....talking about summer.....the heat index is already over the top for me....it is in the 90's and almost impossible to breathe outside. Of course just to add to my fun, the a/c unit in my puter room is going on blink. So staying cool has been a big priority for me. It is very difficult for me to breathe in general under the best of circumstances so in the heat, it is torture.

     We still have the last three puppies here....the lady who is suppose to pick them up was in the hospital with pneumonia, she is just starting to recover, so we have been living with 8 dogs...... now that makes for an insane household. Just imagine the kind of mess dogs are capable of doing on top of puppies chewing and so on.  So once we get rid of the puppies, we are going to have to redo the house totally. We have already removed rugs from the hallway, and there is no furniture in my living room. (don't ask).

     As you can see, I have disappeared for good reasons, but I do miss keeping up with my journal. It gives me a outlet to speak and not worry, but I just cannot juggle everything. I hope to be in touch again soon--keep your fingers crossed. PEACE!!!!!!
