Well, 2 of my kiddos have strep. . .again. Came home from a marriage conference last night, after having gotten several calls from one of the sick children, then went out to my local 24 hour CVS. Only to find out that even though I had a prescription filled there that very afternoon, as well as 2 others this week, they no longer participate in our prescription plan. WHAT??? The medicine was not that pricey, only $25, so I just payed it. There were several other people waiting and only one person working and it was after midnight and my husband and I are due back at the conference at 8:30. I will try to figure out the insurance craziness later. So I got the medicine, came home gave it to the child who needed it, checked my email, and went to bed. . .then got up early on a SATURDAY no less! I hate getting up early on a Saturday. It is the ONLY day until summer that I can sleep in.

Our school district finally decided to change the last day of school back from June 5 to the origional date of May 31. I am very happy about that as are my kids. Not much has to be moved around at this point but it will mean a little more stress at the end of the school year though.

Well, time to leave for the conference. . .more about that later. . .

Time for an update!

Been awhile since I updated here, so here goes. . .
I am watching Law and Order Criminal Intent on my computer while writing this, gotta love the computer where I can have 2 windows open at the same time! I am making my way. . .albeit slowly. . .through Law and Order, starting with Criminal Intent. I like them all though! Love the Blockbuster Total Access! We take full advantage of it too! When I finish a DVD of Criminal Intent, I run up to Blockbuster to get one for the kids. Works great. So I get the most bang for my buck so to speak. Okay, okay, so much for my plugging Total Access.

This week has been kind of crazy. I was very busy this week with stuff at school. The rest of the year will probobly be very busy too. Just about a month ago in fact. Can't wait until I don't have to get up so early! I am considering applying for a job next year at the elementary school. It would be part time and would be at the school so that hours would work. That would be nice.

Mother's Day is coming up. . .not looking forward to that day. The first without my mom. I need to do something for my mother in law, but I am not sure what to do. The online cancer support group I belong to is ending for a few weeks to a month. Then it will start again. I am going to miss it. it is very helpful to be able to talk to people who have been there. This particular group has a lot of people who have lost loved ones to lung cancer. The man at our church who has lung cancer fell this past week and is having a hard time. That is what was the turning point for my mother. She fell while going into church on a Wednesday night. She went downhill after that.

I spent the weekend in bed with a migrain, well as much as I can with a house full of people! What fun! It was worse today. I spent the whole morning and part of the afternoon in bed today. I did manage to make dinner and do some laundry. Right now I am waiting for my Tylenol PM to kick in . . .finally the kids are asleep! I can't go to sleep until they are all in bed and asleep. Well, I better go to bed since I am getting really sleepy, finally! Hopefully I will be able to get up on time tomorrow!
