It has been a pretty busy week. My 90 year old grandma fell and broke her hip last week. They had to wait a week before they finally did the surgery and gave her a new hip. She made it through fine but now she has to recover. She's sad and depressed and wants to go home and is not motivated at all to get up and move around. Hopefully these next few days she will want to. She's a strong woman whos lived through alot. Was born in a cotton mill and relied on black prostitutes down the road alot of the times for food. She's had 12 children, two died when they were babies and two passed away last year and a few months ago. That really brought her down too. So we are all hoping and praying for her to get better! On a lighter note, this picture I took yesterday in my back yard. It's my neighbors old truck and the light was hitting it just right. I do wish he would clean up his yard! This is also a pic of my son Jordan and a friend and their teepee they built yesterday with some trees my husband had cut down around the yard. They did pretty darn good!! Well I hope everyone has a great day. I'm off to pay bills and maybe an antique store!!

New school year!!

Ahhh a new school year has started today! I didn't realize how much Meagan was looking forward to school this year! Well she's 14 and another year of cheering and god forbid, the boys are in her range this year! Time to get out my stick again!!! Now Sami on the other hand never cared for school much at all. She is smart as a whip and doesn't have to try at all and can still make good grades. But, she's 18 and doesn't really know what she wants to do right now. That's understandable. It's hard at 18 to say for sure what you want to do for the rest of your life and hope that that's what's gonna make you happy and your going to love that job forever. She'll figure it out when she's ready! Now Jordan on the other hand says he doesn't like school either. But he always has a good time when he's there. He's even got the radar out for girls this year!! He's only 10! Last year they were pretty yucky, this summer however is a whole new story! I hope they all have a great year and lots of great grades and good times! It doesn't last very long that's for sure! But I wouldn't want to be any of their ages again. I love being an adult! But they do give me a reason for playing though!!
