a beautiful day

We are lucky our winter so far has not been bad. The sun is out today. Yesterday it almost got up to 50 outside. I think it is the calm before the storm. I'm loving it. Christian just left with my friend and her son. She is babysitting while Daniel and I go find a sweater vest for his solo coming up. I really do not like shopping with him. Wish us luck.

off to a rough start

I thought we were doing pretty good getting back into routine around here. It took me three times to get Daniel up. Christian was up and ready. Daniel takes Christian on his way to school. I am restricted to daylight driving. They went to leave and he realized his windows were iced over. Long story made short I ended up having to take Christian. I just waited till it was light enough. We made it with 5 minutes to spare. I did get in trouble from Daniel because I did not wake him up soon enough and didn't let him know about his windows. I always get the blame. I worry about him when he goes off to college. Mom will not be there to wake him up or o tell him he needs to go defrost his car early enough. I came home showered and am off to the grocery store. My home away from home. Luckily I got Christian to school on time or I would of had to take him in through the office in my pajamas.

Back To Routine

I thought the kids would not want to get up this morning for school. They surprised me! They got right up. No complaints. After they were off to school, I went to my doctors appointment. It seems I spent much of the morning there waiting. I have been going through this hassle with medicaid. Hopefully after today it will all be taken care of. My doctor declared me still disabled. I thought so, I've only been disabled for 36 years.
Christian had religion tonight. Daniel and I went to pick him up. I took him to Dairy Queen. Daniel usually is gone a lot at show choir practice. It was nice to spend some time alone with him. Wednesday nights are my favorite tv nights. I like to watch The Middle and Modern Family. I love the Middle because the kids in it are the same age as my sons. I can really relate to it. well, I am off to read my book before I get to tired. I am on this James Patterson kick. I just finished 10th Anniversary, now I'm reading I, Alex Cross.

Last Day Of Vacation

Christian and I just got back from breakfast. There is a restraunt right by our apartment. Christian loves going out to breakfast. I enjoy taking him out. It is the only time he eats good. My scrambled eggs and toast are never right. H e will eat scrambled eggs at my mom's house. Oh well! The kids go back to school tomorrow. I will miss them, Maybe? I think we are all ready to get back into our usual routine around here. I better close for now and get back to my laundry!

I had Daniel take me to the store this afternoon. It was pretty slick out. We went to Walmart. I think the whole town was there. It was very crowded. I almost went down in the parking lot on a bit of ice. Tomorrow is the boys last day of break. Wednesday it is back to the morning routine.
Well, here it is the second day of 2012. I have decided to start blogging again. I need something to do with my spare time. The kids go back to school Wednesday. I will miss having them home. Getting back into routine again will be hard for us. A lot of stuff has gone on in my life since I last blogged about a decade ago. My kids and I have moved to Huntertown, Indiana. A very small town! We are living in a new apartment complex that was just built. It is nice but has been quite an adjustment for all of us. We lived in a house for seven years. Daniel is a junior at Carroll high school. He is very active in the show choir. He has been inn three plays. The Beauty and the Beast, he played the Beast. AIDA where he played Zoser the high preiest, and Check Please about blind dates. Christian is in third grade at St. Vincent De Paul School. He switched schools. It has been an adjustment for him but he is really happy there. Christian will be making his first Communion in May this year. He is very proud of that. Myself, just trying to keep busy and get through the winter weather. Winter and I are enemies. It is hard for me to drive and just get around. My cane is of no use on the snow and ice.
