I really should post more often

so that my posts don't have 15,000 different subjects in one.

Anyways, this past weekend it rained all weekend long. That was fine with me because this time of year especially when it is nice out I fit as much as possible into my weekends because i know there won't be too many more. I needed a weekend to do nothing and relax. I did clean, do laundry, go to church and go grocery shopping, but I also read, read, read!

Taylor's first day with her new teacher was yesterday and she said she likes her. She also said she was 16, which I highly doubt! I am assuming she's pretty young though. I guess time will tell. Last night was another night filled with homework. I am so glad Taylor went to school first because honestly I dread doing this stuff with Callee. Taylor wants to learn as often and as much as she can. Callee wants nothing to do with it, she'll learn hands on, but don't try to sit her down and teach her, ain't happenin! So in two or three years (since Callee's bday is in July I'm not sure if I'll send her when she is 5 or 6) I'll be pulling my hair out unless preschool changes her that much.

Mike and I talked a lot on Friday night and figured some stuff out. I really don't know why it's so hard to ask someone if they mean something the way you took it instead of getting mad and the bantering and hurt feelings keep going back and forth until someone says ENOUGH!!!

Onto sadder things...I really think the world has lost it's mind. I am regretting having kids in this day and age. I love my kids, but the condition of the world right now is sad and scary. Four people between the ages of 23 and 33 in the last week in a 10 mile radius have committed suicide, all of them leaving behind one or more children. I know times are tough and the fight sometimes doesn't feel like it's worth being fought, but my heart goes out to their families and especially their children! Suicide is never a good alternative and there really needs to be more awareness and prevention programs or something. These children now have to grow up with one less parent and deal with adult issues they shouldn't be. Especially when the child is 6 - 8, they have questions that demand and deserve answers. I read a blog that her husband committed suicide and I cry with most of her posts. I don't know how the loved ones keep going, but they should be told often that they are amazing.

So there is my two cents on the world going mad. Hope you all have a good week!

I am glad that Taylor liked her teacher. I have been told I look like I am 19 and I am 27 so there is a chance she could be a decade or two off in her age assumption. I do love the way children view age.

Life is hard and things can get so overwhelming. Death has been on my mind lately, but there is so much going on that I am happy to make it through the day to day. I never want to leave my children though. It isn’t right for a child to have to go through the loss of a parent like that. Plus I don’t think anyone would raise my children the way I want them raised.

Oh I wanted to tell you about a website for your kids.
www.starfall.com It is great. Look it up.
Well I hope things this week go well for you.

I'm glad everything is working out with Taylor and her new teacher. I know how stressful that must be.

My heart goes out to the families who have lost loved ones this week. Very, very sad.

Blessings and Hugs.
