Phew … Now back to regular programming :)

Hello Friends !!
Phew have we been busy around here. Jasmine has had several ear infections and we finally had our appointment with the ear specialist and he said her ears look good today so no tubes which is what we thought he was going to tell us so than it a great blessing. We have had our spring break from school and were sick the whole time!! We had ear infections ( Jasmine and Sierra ) Pink eye ( Sierra and Ariel ) Strep throat (Ariel ) Will, Brian, Melissa, Jordan and Levi had a yucky respiratory infection of which Melissa was close to pneumonia. As for me I had a bout of the migraines a couple of days but have been spared the rest. We have gone most of the winter without any winter illness’ so I guess we had to get it sometime. Heather found out she is pregnant again I think she will be due sometime in January and we are continuing to fight with the school over the bullying Will has there. 2 weeks ago he was in a fight in which front teeth were knocked loose we had to have one extracted because it was broken in two areas one below the gum line and one up into the bone he has to get an implant and they are hoping the other one will tighten back up so he can keep that one. This kid has harassed him since last year and at the beginning of this year we had Will to change buses to be away from him. We have found out that the school even changed this boys classes earlier this year to keep him away from Will and he continues to harass Will and has a group of other boys to harass him as well. We have told the school this is not going to be acceptable any more and we will not accept anymore excuses. We have had a special meeting at school and they say there is going to be more safeguards put into place but we will believe it when we see it, So we have a dental appointment next Wednesday to get Will assessed on the best way to get it all taken care of. Oh yes I was called in for jury duty this week and am so happy I didn’t get picked so I do not have worry about being called again for 2 years. I was very freaked out because they said we were a special group called for a very high-profile case and I immediately thought the worst thing… a murder trial and I was right. I had many sleepless nights worrying about it and am so grateful that I didn’t get picked because that would be a hard thing to have to hear the details of and stuff I know I would not want to see. so that has been what I have been up to around here. I did get to finally clear out a block of time last night and play in my corner after the kids were all sleeping and had a go at my first altered canvas and am very pleased with the results all I have to do now is find a place to hang it in my crowded corner 🙂 I hope you are all well and enjoying spring I think it has finally arrived here Woo Hoo Us. I hope to get things back on track around here and stuff put in its proper space because we had to move stuff out of our room to replace the shower stall in or bathroom That was a crazy fiasco too since mobile home plumbing stuff is not like normal house stuff so many trips all over to get what we needed and Brian is no handy man and he has limited tools so it took us about a week to get most of it done we still have some cosmetic stuff to finish but the shower is working and that is good !!! School will be out on June 3rd so summer is racing up quickly on us so I had better get my rump in gear. Ok so enough blubbering on and on I have enjoyed the blog posts and/or you tube videos from You Leslie, Lynn and Maureen. Talk with you later.

Love and Hugs,
