I also fell on my hands and knees in January and my arm is still hurting, plus I helped a teacher lift a table at the school for parent/teacher conferences and my back is pulled out. I went to see my chiropractor yesterday and he got me lined back out. My hips were off, my shoulder was out of line and he worked with my lower back. It will take a few days, but I am hoping to feel much better soon.
Josh and I are going to get our hair cut tomorrow. I am excited about that. I had also wanted to take him to see Beauty and the Beast, but the tickets are so expensive. I have not decided if we will go or not.
Josh and I are on Spring Break, so I hope to be able to come by and visit blogs. I hope you are all doing well! Happy Spring!

I am still reading my Bible and I have stopped drinking Pepsi. The surgery made the thought of Pepsi make me sick. I am trying hard to not go back down that road. I was drinking way too much caffeine. I feel less tired now actually.
So much has been going on, but I wanted to post about my gallbladder surgery so I can remember it. I hope everyone is doing well. Happy February and Happy Valentine's Day!

We have started back to school and it has been so cold, but tomorrow it is supposed to be in the 60's and Wednesday also. I will have to keep an eye on the weather though, because they are saying we could get ice this weekend.
I have started reading my Bible. I have done this before. I was on a plan one other time to read the Bible in a year, but I really want to do this, so that is also what I have been doing. I have read my Bible, but I want to do it from front to back. I need to be walking on my treadmill too, but that hasn't happened yet.
I fell when we were taking down our Christmas stuff. We have a step in our house and I was not paying attention and slipped and landed on my hands and knees. My right arm has been hurting some ever since. I hope that goes away soon.
I will leave you with a picture that was taken at recess and of November at school. It is me (on the right and my co-worker Samee on the left). We wanted to get a picture in our furry hoods. I love my co-workers! Have a nice winter and stay warm!

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.
