It's been a bit crazy around here. All that ugly court stuff we decided to just push out of our conversations until the time actually comes. We are instead focusing on the end of the quarter. Elijah is working hard to get his grades up. He made the high school JV basketball team and now he's trying to stay eligible. Say a prayer for the kid. He really needs this team in his life right now. And for me. I'm helping him every second I can...which is really hours and hours. *sigh* Nick is off tomorrow to Anchorage for a Social Studies speech competition. His class got second place in our city competition and now they are going to state. Elijah's first high school game is this weekend. I volunteered to do the website (which I'll direct you to in a few days) plus make the programs. Like I have nothing else to do. (Why can't I just keep my mouth shut when they are asking for volunteers out of 50 families?) Emily and I bought stuff for Christmas candy, but she's been sick so it sits and waits. I have not even given a thought to those Christmas cards. Nick has to have his cap and gown order in on Friday and we haven't even looked at it. We need to print the photos I took and he wants me to save money and make his invitations. Oh, and the grad night party. Ug! Graduation is a year long planning process. Why does it have to be so intensive? With all that is going on Christmas will be non-existent this year, but it's okay. My kids are cool with that. I still have that pigeon. It's -22 in town so I can't really let it loose, but I really am ready to not be cleaning the cage daily. Wondering if I should clip it's wings and make it more tame or just set it free. Anyone with pigeon knowledge out there? I should do some laundry. About eight impatiens died from lack of water. The chicken coop needs cleaned. I need more wood. The list is long....but I'll make it through it.
I have my kids and they keep me breathing every day.
