Happy Ash Wednesday!

26 more days to go.. ;-)

So I made good on my Lenten promise today.  I went for two walks.  Figured since tomorrow it is supposed to be rainy, I'd take another walk tonight.  For some reason, new fluffy dog, only seems to want to poop on the school property which makes me laugh.  Don't worry, I'm a responsible pet owner and picked up his poop.  I also decided that I'm going to do some form of cleaning everyday too.  Today I did some dishes and laundry.  I know it's not much, but I've been slacking in the housework department.  So my Lenten promise is to try not to be so lazy.  No clue what the hubby and kid are giving up, neither can seem to make up their minds.  Honestly, I'd like to see them give up video games, but both scoffed at the idea of course.  I told the kid he could join me on my cleaning promise, but of course he scoffed at that too.  Right now I'd take him just doing homework without a fight.  Would that work?  Giving up fighting over homework for Lent?  Sure would make my life a lot more peaceful.  :-)

28 and 27.. missed a day already!

Whoops!  Missed a day already.  See, I'm no good at this blogging stuff!

We got a new dog yesterday.  His name is Rocky, although I'd like to change it to Stitch to go with our other dog Lilo.. however Rocky seems to stick with him.  Actually Romeo would be even better because he loves women!  Anyway, he's a Chorkie (Yokie and Chihuahua mix) and he's absolutely beautiful.  I'm totally in love with him.  Lilo doesn't care for him and he doesn't care for Lilo, but we're working on getting them to get along.  It's slow going, but I was expecting that.  He follows me around all day long and stays right next to me.  Right now he's laying on the floor by my feet while I'm at the computer. 

Aside from the dog excitement, more drama with the kid. :-( Got sent to the principals office again today for threatening to hit someone.  The someone he threatened apparently pushed him.  Found out tonight that this particular person and three others are really mean to him all the time.  That makes me so sad.  I just don't know what to do with him.  I'm proud of him for not hitting this kid, but at the same time, it irritates me that this kid didn't get in trouble for pushing him, he got in trouble for saying he was going to hit the kid.  Really?  That seems fair. 

Lent starts tomorrow.  I've decided instead of giving something up, I'm making myself take walks at least 5 days out of the week. I guess technically I'm giving up being lazy, right?  I need to find some yummy vegetarian recipes to use during Lent also.  The hubby doesn't like fish, so there's only so many meatless meals I can make that he'll eat.  Luckily I've got some clam chowder in the cupboard for the kiddo for lunch tomorrow.. and we're having breakfast for dinner tomorrow.. beyond that, I need some meatless ideas!

Off to use the google power now..

29 Days!

Ha!  I didn't forget.  Not today at least.. it's still early.  Sitting here at work again today.  It's so quiet in here, I expect it to be that way all day long due to the pouring rain outside.  Wish I could say I had something to do other than sitting here on my netbook.  I already scrubbed down every flat surface in here and baked cookies.

Hopefully the kiddo will have a good day at home with the hubby today. Everything is such a battle with him these days, especially where the hubby is concerned.  Tomorrow I will be trying once again to find him a new therapist who is closer to our home.  Damn gas prices right now, I can't afford to go to the one we were going to anymore because he was 20 miles away.  In a gas guzzling vehicle, that's a lot of gas!  So tomorrow I will hopefully get a hold of the community counseling place in our town.  I didn't want to have to use them, small town and all, but my last resort has arrived.. thank you Libya or whoever is to blame for the sudden rise in gas prices!

In other news, it seems the rain has stopped.  Hopefully we'll get some people in here now.  It is way too quiet!!!!

30 Days?

I am such a slacker in the blogging department.  I'm going to challenge myself to 30 days of blogging!  I wonder if I can actually remember to write something everyday?  Anyone care to join me???

Soooo let's start with today.  I'm sitting here bored off my mind at work.  Generally it's pretty fun at work, but it's kinda quiet today.  Annoying sailor guy (ASG for short) is here and I'm trying to look busy so he won't come talk to me.  Cruel I know, but I already watched some stupid W.O.W. video on You tube that I just *had to see* at his insistence.  Usually he sits and talks about everything that is of no interest to me.  Yeah I'm mean.. but sheesh.. he goes on and on.  And usually it happens when I'm trying to do something.  I love my job and for the most part I love all the sailors who come in here, but some of them just get on my last damn nerve!  ASG is definitely one of them.  Some of the other ones who come in here are awesome.  I wish they weren't students.. I could see myself being friends with a lot of them, but unfortunately outside of my job, I can't hang with them thanks to my hubby's job.  Sometimes that can be a little frustrating.

In other news.. we are ABA therapistless again!  We had hired another one, but she's gone MIA since December.  I'm quite fed up and irritated with the company who keeps doing this to us.  The kiddo is doing alright, but we're entering into tweendom now and he's turning into a crabby kid with a nasty mouth.  At this point in time I'm scared we're going to have to hospitalize him in the near future.  I want him on meds but am scared to try any again..  He's constantly getting in trouble in school, to the point where apparently 7 parents have complained about it to the principal.  I constantly hear from my friend whose daughter in his class about how horrible he is everyday.  I'm on the school nonstop to keep me informed and to see what they are doing about things.  He can't sit still and keep his hands to himself.  Makes me feel like a horrible parent when I hear my 9 year old can't control himself any better than a 3 year old can.  Then I get the pleasure of listening to a friend lecture me about putting him on meds again or maybe I just need to hit him.. that'll stop his behavior.  Yeah, cause I want my kid to be terrified of me like other kids are of their parents.  Anyhoo.. yeah things are a barrel of fun around here.

Guess I have a lot to say.  Should be easy for me to keep this up for 29 more days, right?????
