Another School Year

Well school started yesterday and everything went well for Amy. She is in her junior year of highschool, where has the time gone. On the first day of school all the students bring home papers to parents to look over and sign, I call that parents homework. There was a paper about School Nutrition and I looked over it and was shocked how much lunches cost. Lunch each day for a student is $2.50, so I told her she will be taking her lunch again this year. Amy says the lunches at school is not good anyway. I can remember when I was in school the school lunches were really good. When Amy was in elementary school, I would go eat lunch with her and the lunches then were good, but by the time she got into the 4th grade, the lunches started getting awful. Things are getting higher anyway. it seems like everytime I turn around, Amy needs money for something at school. I hope she don't have to have much money this year for something at school, because I don't know where it's going to come from. Living on a 28 hour a week paycheck is hard right now. Oh well, hopefully it will get better soon.
Until next time.

It has been a long time since I have posted on here. Summer is going well. My husband is still working his 28 hours a week, so not much has changed there in that area. Our garden is not doing as well as we would like, but have got a few things out of it. We have got cucumbers and squash and now we are getting a few greenbeans out of it. Fresh vegetables are great.
In June the little girl I was keeping has left me, because of her moms schedule. She will be starting kindergarten in August anyway. It is kind of strange not having any little ones running around here. I had both her and her sister since they were little babies, that was for about 6 years. I am missing them already. Everyone says I need to get some more children to keep, but I am taking a break right now. I need to clean and organize my house right now, since I have the time. Some days I don't get much done because of motivation.
Well until next time, whenever that will be. LOL! Have a great summer.

Another Beautiful Day

Today is going to be another beautiful day. It will not be as hot as yesterday. It was in the low 80's yesterday and today it will be 67. We have our birdfeeders filled up and of course the squirrels love getting on them and eating the seed. This morning I saw 2 yellow finches, the first 2 this year already. I think those are my favorite bird to watch besides the big woodpeckers we have about everyday. It is wonderful to watch God's creatures.
God Is So Good. Have a wonderful rest of the week.

It's Been A Long Time

It's been a long time since I have posted anything on here. It seems like everything happens at once. I have still been going through some stress. In Feb. our computer went down and just got it up and running last week. Our harddrive was bad. Also one Sunday morning right before my husband left for work the hot water heater busted, so we had to turn the hot water off and got our neighbor over here to look at it and he said it was gone. We had to buy a new one and our neighbor put it in for us. We still can't use our dryer, so we will have to buy another one. I have been hanging up clothes around the house and I also have one of those wooden drying racks, which comes in handy. They say when it rains it pours.
David is still working 28 hours a week and the insurance he has is no good. It will not pay for certain things. I am paying about a little over 160.00 for Amy's medicine, because that's one thing the insurance will not pay for. Our dentist is not under that insurance plan which we don't like that either, because we love going to that dentist and David does not want to change. I hope things will get better.
I hope everyone has a great week.
