Could it be a Dull Moment?....Not


I have been home from vacation now for almost a month. So much has happened since I have been home, I'm looking for a dull moment but doubt that will be happening.
The first week I was back I did some deep cleaning of the house and rearranging, that felt good to go on a get rid of it spree. My house is small and it needed that to look somewhat organized once again.
My son Chad applied for a job at our local store (Fred Meyer) and a week later he was hired and working part time after school and on the weekends pushing carts and helping customers. He is very excited to be working, although he is trying to learn balance between, school, friends, girlfriend and work. He finds this is not an easy task. Yesterday was his first paycheck and he came home from work with a beautiful little ring for his girlfriend. He is so kind hearted and excited to give it to her. Today he works and then after work they are going to the movie.
I am back to my college classes and I think my English class is going to give me a run for my money. Well so is my human services class too, but in a different way. I go off to the college for my English class and my HS class is e-live and I can sit in my PJs and have class right here at home. So most weekends I sit and do homework, and everything else the house may need around here.
Today I have one of my Granddaughters over night while herMom has a break. Also we are going over to my friends house for dinner, yes I get to go spend time with Sugamama and her crew. I'm looking forward to the welcomed break, but that will mean step it up on homewrok Sunday and Monday before my new week of school and more Homework.
What I really want to do is brave the cold and spend some time on a frozen lake and ice fish. Become one with the ice and a little hole and snap out some fresh fish for dinner. Not seeing that in my forecast just yet. I guess a girl can dream though! Maybe next weekend if the homework is lean and the timing is just right.

Oh yeah time with SugarMama! You're so sweet to give a mama a break too!

Sounds like an amazing month! So happy for Chad, Fred Meyers was one of my first jobs a great company. He's so sweet picking her up a ring. So sweet, just like his mama!
