Glad Nikki is home! ~ My summer is over too. I went back to work a few weeks ago, my hubby goes back today and the kids all go back to school next Monday. I'm already ready for another summer! ~ I just did "ask me anything" at my other journal. My question to you is... Do you read my other journal? If not, why? -- just kidding, that's not really my question but stop by that journal anyway...
http://journals.aol.com/lifes2odd/Justvisiting/. ~ My real question is one someone just asked me. If you could have an all expenses paid trip to anywhere where would you go? Why? how long would you stay ? What would you do while you were there? Martha :-)
Well Martha I would go to Ireland. My grands parents are from there. I never really go to know them, but I would have loved to hear their stories.
I want to go back to the county of Cork and just stand there. I want to stand where my grandparent stood. I have often wondered if I still have relatives over there, but the people that would know that answer are dead. There is one other person who might know, but there is one person who might know. That would be my dad cousin Patrick.
The last time my dad knew Patrick was in Canada and he was a priest and he was even educated at Notre Dame. That is all I know about him.
Today has been a productive day. So far today I have gotten dinner cook and the house cleaned up. I MIGHT have even sold my vintage sewing machine. I do hope that this lady wants it, I could use the money for a project that I am working on.
Nikki tried out for softball yesterday and she does have another try out today. I was informed yesterday that if she makes the varsity team that they also do travel ball! I am telling you I need an atm machine with an endless supply of money. I just hope that Nikki makes a team and is happy.
Yesterday Nikki and I went over to one of Ambers teachers houses. The teacher is giving us some stuff for Ambers yard sale. This teacher is giving us some really nice stuff! I am going to list some of the stuff on craigslist and see if we can get a little bit more for it.
Amber just came in and told me that the news just said any dead beat dads that owe more then $20,000 in back child support cannot get a passport. I am not sure if that is just for California or for all of the US.
I am going to go apply at Target. I have decided that if I go back to work then I can pay for Nikki's trip to Costa Rica. After that it will help pay for Christmas.
Heather.... I have not gotten any alerts from you. What up with that?! LOL Is aol acting up again?
I do hope that everyone has a great day.
