We got a call from Josh's Principal this week also. He wanted to pass along a message that one of Josh's teachers wanted to let us know that Josh had a positive report and was being a leader this week. I was so happy for him. This is a new Principal, so I am really hoping Josh's last year will be a good one. Josh has had pretty negative experiences with this school district for a very long time, so I am hoping for a good year. I also work with the Principal's wife.
I went to visit my parents last night and they were good. My dad was having a good day. I love it when he is so on top of things.
Today I slept in and am just relaxing and recharging. Have a great weekend!

I was able to have lunch with several of my friends from work this summer. I have met so many good people at my new job. It will be good to see them again when we get back to work.
Josh had his birthday on August 4th...he turned 18. I am glad we were able to spend time together this summer. We got to go shopping together for his school clothes and the shirt he is wearing in these pictures is one I picked out. Unfortunately he is wearing the same shirt in both pictures, but these were different days. We went to eat at Ruby Tuesday and then had chocolate cake for his birthday cake.
Well, like I said, I start back to work on Monday, but I will try to sneak over and update if anything happens during the school year and I will try to update just because I enjoy reading everyone's blogs. Enjoy the rest of your summer and fall. I am so excited to decorate my house for fall. I bought some new things to decorate with yesterday and I have stocked up on fall candles. They are the best. I did not get to go swimming at all this summer, so I will leave with a little beach siggie.

Josh and I have just been hanging out with my mom and dad. Josh got tired of shopping with my mom, so he has been staying with my dad. It seems to be going ok. My mom is a slow shopper, she always has been. It takes her hours to grocery shop, so I go with her.
Josh and I stayed up until 4:30AM the other night just talking about stuff. We usually have these talks in the summer in the daytime, but since we are never alone, we stayed up one night talking. I enjoy our talks. He is such a smart kid.
I am meeting up with my friends again on Tuesday for lunch. I am excited to see them. One of the girls will be working in another building this year, so we will not see her. I am going to miss her.
It seems like last I wrote Dallas shootings have happened, Nice France and the Turkey military coup. The world has gone crazy. It is so sad to watch.
Josh and I just have a few more weeks before school starts. We have a lot to get in and Josh will be turning 18 years old on August 4th. I know some of you who read this blog have known me his whole life from back in the website days. I cannot believe how fast time flies. This will be his senior year, I am not sure what his plans are after graduation. He had planned to go to college, but he has really had a bad experience with the school district here and has lost all confidence in himself. He has time to figure things out though.
Have a nice week, it is going to be hot here next week. I am going to be wishing I was in my pool.

I have found Hallmark movies and Mysteries channel. We did not have it for a long time, but it is part of our package now. The past several weeks I have been watching mysteries on there and I just love them. They are silly, but I do not care. The past couple of nights I have been watching Christmas in July movies. I just love Hallmark movies. I am excited to have two channels of them to watch.
Karl has been having migraines this week. We are not sure what is causing them, but since I have been married to him he has maybe one a year and this week he has had 3.
My dog Meisha has been having a rough week with the fireworks. She is scared to death of them and will hide. Her whole body just shakes. It is so sad. It has been raining some and there haven;'t been as many, so hopefully most of the fireworks will get set off tonight. My other two dogs do not seem to care about the noise, but Meisha has always been scared. She will even jump into Karl's lap and she is a lab.
Tomorrow I take my mom to the eye doctor. We are taking my dad and I will stay with him in the waiting room or in the car. I need to take her to get groceries too.
In the meantime, you all have a very Happy 4th of July!

Josh and I were with my parents last night and the Olympic Gymnastics girls came on tv. I was so excited, so was my mom. I am very excited about Simone Biles. Is anyone else watching them yet? They are looking good. They will be back on tv Sunday night.
I have made plans to meet a couple of friends from work on Tuesday for lunch. We are meeting at 11:00 and then afterwards I will go to my parents house.
Have a great weekend!

I heard through a friend I work with on Monday that I was going to be working with my same little boy at the school next year....but for now it is a rumor and I have not heard anything official, but if that is true, it is good news and I will be happy to stay there. I will just keep praying and hope to hear something soon.
The semi annual sales are going on at Bath and Body and Victoria's Secret, so yesterday my Bath and Body order came in and today my Victoria's Secret bra came in. I am always so excited for the semi annual sales. I got several wallflowers from bath and body, some lotions, scentportables for my car and soap.
We took my dad shoe shopping last Friday in Branson. We got him some new shoes from S.A.S. His poor feet are so swollen from the lymphedema that he took a size bigger and a triple wide, but he has shoes to wear now. I am happy about that.
I guess that catches everyone up since I last posted. I am getting ready to watch a St. Louis Cardinals game. They are playing the Chicago Cubs. We beat them 2 games and today is the 3rd. Chicago's best pitcher is going though. I love watching the Cardinals play win or lose. Have a great week!

My job...well, I understand I am being moved to a completely different position next year and it is not very desirable to me...so here we go again with the job situation. I feel like I am supposed to be with my family and not working, but that is not really possible. I would love to find a part time job. I really do not need this extra stress. I will say work is a good way to stay distracted and busy though. I have applied for a position at another school...I hate to leave my job because I have met some really good friends there. They have been very supportive with my dad's situation.
Josh finished his junior year and starts his senior year in the fall. It is hard to believe. I took him to the orthodontist the other day and it was his last check up. I guess his braces have been off for a year now. They said his teeth have not shifted and he does not need to come back, so that was good news.
I am sure there is a lot I have left out, but I have been so busy just spending time with my parents. I am home today doing laundry, so I thought I would decorate my blog and post an update. I really do want to post better updates. We will see. If not, have a great summer and 4th if July! I am truly going to try to be back before then though. Maybe something good will happen.
