First Day of School

After having all summer to decide what he wanted to do, today Bryan refuses to do any work and is being sent back to public school. Tomorrow morning we are re-enrolling him in the school we took him out of in February. I can't say I am happy, but he brought this on himself.

School is Almost Here!

It is almost time for school to start again. Seanie is a Junior this year and Bryan is starting 8th grade. A lot of states start before we do so I have been seeing a lot of first day of school posts on Facebook this past week. All of this means two things: fall is almost here, and Halloween is right around the corner! Yay! My all-time favorite  holiday! 
  Today I am taking my mother in law to a doctor's appointment. That means sitting for possibly hours while she is in there, so I am taking a book. Hopefully I won't be waiting too long.
  Yesterday Heather's car died and so Marshall is having to take her to work until they get another one. Sean is on his own and is going to have to walk to work. It's not like it's a long walk, maybe a mile. It won't kill him. They can't afford to get another car right now, or so Sean said yesterday, so it looks like this is going to be how it goes for a while
  Jess is back in the hospital. She went in on the 17th. I am hoping it isn't too long of a stay this time because last time she whined the entire time that no one came up to sit with her. Now that school is starting, I don't have the time to sit all day up there and Marshall isn't able to. Besides, she is an adult and needs to learn to do things for herself instead of having us do them.

My New Office

Today I got a new office. Well, it is new to me. It used to be the boys' bedroom until we built them a new one. I moved my desk and cabinets and everything in here this morning and now for the decorating. That is always the best part of a new room. I can't paint or replace the carpet right now, but I can decorate the walls and such. There are even little stars on the ceiling from when Heather lived in here. So at night I get my own little planetarium show :)  I also finished painting my file cabinet a pretty grass green and I am going to move my herb trunk in here from my room, So far, Stevie is the only cat that hangs out in here, but they will come around once they get used to it being an office. I am a very happy witch at the moment :)

Ready for Fall

I am really ready for fall. It is getting so hot here that I can't think and I hate going outside because I can barely breathe. It seems a lot hotter to me now than it did when I was little. Either that or I am just getting old and intolerant of the heat. My kids don't seem to be bothered by it. Maybe it is age. 
  Since Friday we have been down to just 3 cats. I miss my other babies, but they went with my kids to their homes. Heather took Riven and Smoke and Ian took Fuzzy and Pumpkin. We have Stevie, Evie, and Klinger. They seem to be ok with the other cats gone, but time will tell.
  Jess is doing a lot better and has been going out with her friends a lot. Last night she didn't come home so I guess she was having fun.
  Marshall, Logan, Bryan, and Michael are watching Iron Man. Today is apparently movie day. We will be watching the last 2 Harry Potter maybe the Good Witch series if there is time. Those are my favorites :)
