Tuesday Joshua has to have hernia surgery. He's nervous. I'm nervous for him.

Kamry lost a tooth and quickly brought it to my attention that last time the Tooth Fairy forgot.

My kids were on Spring Break this week. Why have I done more chores than them??

My yearly raise gives me tank of gas per paycheck more. Glad gas isn't $4 a gallon any more or it would have been a tank of gas a month.

I have puppyitis. I know what I want, but don't wanna pay hundreds of dollars for it.

You'd think after 3 months I'd have more to say. Not so much...

Love ya much...ME

Merry Christmas to all....

Just a quick note to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas. Hope all was well with each of you. The kids seemed happy with what Santa brought them. They are getting older and I am having a bit of a hard time with the lack of magic Christmas seems to hold for them. The anticipation seems to be gone for the boys. There is no magic in it for them anymore. That saddens me. I wish that they were still little and their faces lit up the way they did when they were 2 and 3. But it is what it is. I can't make them little again and it's up to me to adjust to it.

Kamry on the other hand had a Santa related meltdown about 11:30 last night. She saw some stuff in my room and jumped to the conclusion that I was Santa. I explained that it was up to her and to trust what her heart and gut told her. She said that she would rather know there isn't a Santa than to have me lie to her. I didn't lie. I just danced around it as best I could. I covered, I bobbed, and I weaved. In the end, I talked her down off the ledge and I think she is good to go. I just basically told her that I know 5 year olds that DIDN'T believe, but that I knew 35 year olds that DID. It's up to her. This is one of her first experiences in trusting herself and her gut. What ever she comes up with is fine by me.

I spent the better part of the afternoon at Mom and Dad's. It was nice, but different. My sisters and their families weren't there. I missed them. The boys went to Joe's after we got done eating and Kamry and I went to see a movie. It was not a good choice for an eleven year old, she was bored and we left early. We intended to see Marley and Me, but all shows until 10 pm were sold out. We were gonna then see Bedtime Stories...same issue there. We ended up in Yes Man and its great for adults, but not her! Lesson learned.

I guess this wasn't that quick afterall. I have to work tomorrow. Kamry is always wanting to go with me, so tomorrow is as good a day as any. Now let's see if I can get a good nights sleep and then we'll see if I can get her up in the morning.

I hope that all had a peaceful, relaxing day.

Love to all....ME

PS....My birthday is Saturday in case anyone was wondering...... :-)

Wow...didn't see this one coming...

Ron called this morning. He got let go from his job this past Friday. Lack of work due to the economic crunch felt by many. This would be the down side to working for a small business. He managed the pawn shop for almost 7 years. Now, too many people pawning, not enough people buying equals not enough money to pay employees.

My downside on this is the child support I will not be receiving. Selfish, yes. But also practical on my living paycheck to paycheck self.

Any one got a job they want to give a hard working, dedicated and determined guy? I know one that is looking....

Thank goodness I have a job to come to everyday.

Should I change the name of the blog to Kathy Monthly???


Well, it's been a month.

In that month, Kamry got better and I got sick. Between the 2 of us, I missed 6 days of work. That went over like a dead balloon at the workplace.

In that month, the kids got their report cards. 1 pretty good, 1 decent, and 1...well...not decent. But things are looking up and I have high hopes for the coming semester.

In that month, Hunter has turned into a big boy, and I haven't seen him. I got sick a couple of days after our last visit, which was the weekend before Halloween. 3 weeks!! Babies change a lot in three weeks. I miss the lil man.

In that month, I have decided exactly how much I hate Philosophy. Well, the class anyway. I just wanna be done with it. I don't know if I will even pass, and what's more, I don't care. That is rare for me. I pride myself on my 3.5 GPA. That may nose dive if I don't pass this. I will just have to pull it out...

Well, that's it for now. I will try to do better. I make no promises.

Peace, love, and hope...ME
