A Little Bit Of Randomness

There really hasn't been anything interesting going on in my life lately. But I do have some updates...

Middle Child has passed to Fourth Grade! His report card reads SO much better these days! When he got off the bus last Friday he stopped in the middle of the road (read small lane), raised his hands in the air and screamed, "FOURTH GRADE!!!!" He was SO happy! I got a little tear in my eye. He's just now realizing how smart he is. I've been trying for YEARS to get him to understand that, but his first Kindergarten teacher called him dumb and the stupidest kid she'd ever taught...I know this because I heard her saying it to him before a parent/teacher conference. I ended up holding him back his Kindergarten year because he was so frazzled, he didn't WANT to learn. So, his academic career didn't start off the best. But we're working on it one grade at a time and he's getting his confidence back. {Thanks alot STOOPID first Kindergarten teacher!}

Youngest Boy Child is going into 2nd grade. Him - I have NO worries about! As a matter of fact, he made a little booklet about 1st grade and he said it was easy. The boy is 7 (almost 8) and he's smarter husband (did you actually think I was gonna say me? You must be crazy...or you know me too well)

Girl Child is being a typical 12 yr old girl. She's loving the fact that she can go to her friends house and stay as long as she wants. She's been taking really good care of her brothers the last week or so (yes, the older boys are at the house - but that's just in case MY boys decide to burn it down)

Step-Spawn One and Two...Step-Spawn Two has decided to join the Navy. Thank GAWD! It'll get him outta my house soon!!! Step-Spawn One....yeah, no update on him. Don't get me wrong - I love him to death, but he sits at the house and makes sure the little boys don't burn it down.

Hubby bought a motorcycle last week...I can't WAIT for it to be fixed! The first weekend it is, we're riding to Panama City Beach, Baby!!!! I NEED the beach badly! I feel drained. The beach is my battery charger and if I don't get charged soon, EVERYONE in my house will be VERY sorry!

Next week I'm starting my 4 10 hour work days so I can have some time to spend with my kids while they're out of school for the summer. I know, why would I want to put myself thru the torture of have 3 whole days with them? Honestly? That's the only way I'll be able to HOPEFULLY get some sun on my white assed self! No, I'm NOT sunbathing nude...THAT is one thing NO ONE wants to see!

But I figure at least one day a week the kids can get away from the house and have some fun! I'll take em to the beach, the water park and even a museum or two...maybe, if I don't get too lazy. Either that, or I'll be spending my 3 days a week drinking....

AHHHHHH, Summertime!
