Wow, it's been awhile. I'm still here. I'm still alive. Just a quick update today though due to birthday dinner for my mother-in-law and hunky boyfriend. We are going to eat where Blondie works and make her wait on us. That will be a switch!
Drama Queen has adjusted quite well. She loves Arkansas. But, then again, Arkansas is absolutely beautiful with the mountains. She stopped bucking everyone who talked to her and hopefully is gaining something from the church she must attend and the people around her. The bible teacher is still constantly reminding her that she is praying for her soul. I am assuming she is a fairly new convert to that faith, as that is how most are in the beginning... pushy. She begins GED classes this week which will help tremendously. Get that brain cookin' again. Oh wait, maybe she already cooked it! (just kidding) She did find out the adoption laws in Arkansas which are drastically different then in Kansas which is a good thing. She is keeping that as a viable option (yes, there is a God). Still, we have been in this same type of place before, so time will tell.
Blondie. She went out with a guy that she actually likes! He's not annoying and a jerk. She has actually known him since high school (he went to a different school). We'll see how long he lasts. She is a whiz at school, as usual and I'm just so dang proud of her.
Dweeb is busy with his new band. Many new songs to learn and print out, so haven't seen him much. But, he is doing what he loves and that is the most important thing to me.
Me? I've been at that point in life where I'm not sure what to do next. A bit lost to say the least. After much soul searching and realizing it's time for the girls to be more on their own I've made a decision. I'm running away from home. (just kidding!) I'm going back to school. Too old to start over in college (my opinion). No credits I've earned in the past are good now. I love photography, so I'm going that route. I'll keep you posted on how that goes. I need a life!
I thought I'd have time to blogwalk today, but... there is always that but, isn't there? I was going to vacuum and mop real quick and then get to some serious reading. Two problems arose. The Swiffer wet mop stopped working. I got mad about that, so went to the vacuum. After two rooms, the vacuum started smoking. I mean smoking with possible sparks or flames shooting out from it. I quickly turned it off and threw it out on the driveway. I was seriously pissed at this point. I ended up spending the rest of the afternoon buying yet another vacuum. Why don't they last longer? No way was I going the cheap route this time. I'm buying the best. I succombed to the Dyson. When I got home and re-vacuumed a room that I had done before the old one crapped out, I could not believe the amount of dirt that it sucked up! I'm a bit happier now.
It's time for the birthday party, so must run. Oh yeah, my mother-in-law is heading back to Paris soon for three weeks or so. I'm SO happy for her. She will meet up with her brother while she is there and travel around France with him. I'll save that for later. Hope you are all having a great weekend.
