One year and........

welcome44.gif

.....still loving y'all.  I started jotting in this journal last March, just to keep up with myself LOL.  I have always penned my thoughts or made notes in a calendar, the calendar eventually getting tossed out.  It was a way for me to keep up with "normal activity".

Especially where Tom was concerned.  I would make entries in my datebook of when he was out, late, drunk, or whatever the case.... to be able to justify my arguments that he was habitual.

WOW......he's come a long way....the incidences are few and far between.  He is now concentrating on "family" and self instead of hanging out with so called friends. 

He will soon be eligible to get his driver's license back (YAY) and that will be a great weight lifted from his mind.  (I still ask him "so how long ya gonna keep them THIS time?)  Once he's "legal" again, I do wonder how long it will be before a screw up.  How sad........ I shouldn't be "expecting" him to fail, yet........history.........

thfriends428.jpg  I have also in this last year met some wonderful people through this journal.  Although I have not yet met y'all face to face, you mean a lot to me.  Your kind words towards me and my family are so appreciated.  I love you all!  Tom actually asks me from time to time "how is so and so" from J-land and Miss T is convinced that Miss Barbara is going to be a star one day.  (Loves to hear you sing!)

 

Tom & I had a great weekend....we went to Raleigh Saturday to the Billy Joel concert.  It was awesome.  We spent the night and drove leisurely home on Sunday stopping in Smithfield at the outlet.  Miss T was with my Mom and having fun as well.

Dramaville is the thblink_womanwithanattitude_od.gif same......boss's wife is anal still about their 14 yr old son NOT seeing the Swimsuit Edition....too bad, I already gave it to him.  Plus he looked it up online too lol!!!  Plus the 18 yr old can't get online at home either "without permission" ..... UGH!!!!!  I finally blew up today and asked boss "WHY?"  what is da problem man? and why did I have to hear it????

Anywho, we're off to a dance competition AGAIN this weekend.  Back to Myrtle Beach this time.  The normal comp is in the Raleigh area, but there were issues with their schedule so we opted to do this one instead.  I'll be sick of Myrtle Beach before long.............

............................NOT!

I need to fix Miss T's top...we're changing her costume.  I also need to alter a couple of other costumes for the group.

AND my internet at home is still screwy.....gotta call the provider TODAY and get them to come out and fix it.  My "surf" time has been limited......

PLUS I need Miss T to be able to get online and practice her math.  I have requested she have a tutor for a little while.  She was A+ in math BEFORE 4th grade.....it's been C+ all year until last week.  She brought home the interim report for this 9 weeks and is up to a B...she's been working hard and was proud of herself.  Me too!

Hmmmm, what else is on my list? 

Tom is gonna start the deck extension to the pool in another week or so.  He said the 17th....we'll see.  I lay odds he doesn't start it...fundzalow disease......maybe the next weekend LOL.

My Mom called and invited me to lunch today, it's almost time. 

Until next time................

I think I am nearing my one year mark... crazy when you think about it isnt it? I am so jealous of your little getaway.... I would love to do that! I would love it if my kids just go off to Grandmas for the night....lol... I think 4th grade is a bad place.... thats where I started having trouble... in math no less... and my step-sons as well....I didnt know there was a place online to practice math, can you send me a link so that I can have my stepsons practice as well? One os in 4th grade, the other in 6th. Thanks! Take care!!

Hi Sharon, so good to stop in and congratulate you on a full year of journaling!!

I am so bad, I wouldn't let my men look at the swimsuit edition.... if they were going to do it I certainly don't wanna know.  LOL.  But after I am in more shape than I am right now it probably wouldn't bother me.  So is boss's wife kinda maybe a little out of shape?  Jealous insecure type?  I have an excuse because of my childhood LOL and because after that I pretty much thought all men were pervs for most of my life unless they found Jesus.  LOL.  But the boss's wife, I am sure she has no excuse.  LOL.  Hugs,
Lisa

Happy Blogging Anniversary. Yup, time flies when you're having fun.
Goodluck at Ms. T's dance competition.
Homeownership can be a pain. Be glad your pool did not spring a leak. I just spent an arm and a leg to have mine fixed. Hubby loves his pool and I couldn't care less.
We live in Florida so a swimming pool is de rigueur. Can't wait to retire in Oregon or Washington State.
Hugs.

Hi there.  Haven't heard from you for awhile but I am sure glad to hear that things are going well with you and hubby and that you had a good time at the Billy Joel concert.  You are getting really busy with Miss T's dancing and costumes, aren't you.  I've been working in the back yard, trying to get it in shape before I have a bunch of company over for Easter--weeding has to be my least favorite thing to do!  Fundzalow has hit here too along with timeszawasting.  Hope Miss T does well in the competition!

Happy one year journaling. It's so nice that J-land has some wonderful people here. I'm happy that Tom is doing better and sure hope he continues to do so when he gets his license back. Sounds like you had a great weekend.

Happy 1 year journaling. I hope things stay well with Tom. Miss T is right about Miss Barbara, she sings beautifully. My husband is a fan of Billy Joel, so is my daughter Emma. I don't see anything wrong with a 14yr old boy looking at a swimsuit edition. Bosses wife needs to snap out of it, lol. Wishing the best of luck at dance competition. Have a wonderful day, snow free I hope. It's snowing here in Philadelphia right now, grrrrrrrrr. where is spring. ((((((((hugs)))))))))))
