I go visit my mom and dad every Friday after school. My dad got new compression socks for his legs, but my mom cannot get them on him anymore, so they are having home health care come out and wrap them instead. I wish I did not have to work so I could help, but we would not be able to pay our bills. It is stressful for everyone. My mom wants me there all of the time and I cannot do that.
Anyway, we did go spend the day with my parents on Thanksgiving and it was a nice day and a great meal. My mom had asked me to move her furniture, so when we were down I asked her where she wanted it moved and she had changed her mind. We offered to put up the Christmas tree, but she said no. She is just so tired and overwhelmed. We actually left a little earlier than normal, so hopefully they got some sleep.
Karl and I went Black Friday shopping, but not until later in the day on Friday and it wasn't to snatch up any deals, but we did get a new comforter set for our bed, new sheets for Josh's bed and a Shark mop for the kitchen. We managed to get the house decorated for Christmas and we also got it all cleaned up. I am doing laundry now getting ready to go back to work tomorrow. We also ordered several Christmas gifts for family online. We have a good start. I am excited to get them wrapped and under the tree. The dogs do not mess with anything believe it or not.
We have been watching the Hallmark Christmas movies and I have been enjoying them so much. That is about it. Nothing crazy going on. I just thought I would drop in and make an update. I hope you are all dong great and I will try to visit over Christmas Break. Enjoy the holidays!

This week the boy I work with was out of town on vacation, so I was in charge of the dental clinic at the elementary school. The school has a dentist office that comes in and checks teeth and also cleans them for those that do not have dental insurance and no dentist. It is free. Ok, so I am not in charge of it, but I get the kids for them and escort them back to class. I am in charge of making sure the kids keep coming, so I have to know the schedules of each class and work around testing, recess, lunch, etc. It is fun and I get out and about in the school and see people I do not usually get to see anymore. I think we will be done on Monday. The little boy I work with will be back on Tuesday, so it worked out perfectly.
I had a Scentsy party on facebook last night and that was fun. The party made over $200, so I was able to get some free goodies. I am so excited. Scentsy if you are not familiar with it is like wax pot burners with scented wax cubes...you turn them on and your house smells wonderful. I guess they have car scents now too and I got some of those as well to try.
Karl and Josh are doing fine. Josh is still hating school, but his grades are not as bad as last year. He will be glad when he is done. I will have less stress when he is done.
I redecorated here at my blog for Fall and I am thinking I need to start decorating the house too. Have a nice weekend!

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!
