no time

Rusty had to work a show all weekend, so I have not been able to spend much time with him. On Monday morning Rusty went into work late, so we were able to grab a few minutes of adult conversation.

The conversation basically gave me a long to do list.

Find out if the school system actually got Ryan a teacher for this up coming year. Find out if they are ever going to evaluate him for o.t. Call transportation and find out what time his bus will be picking him up. We all know how much I love dealing with the school system.... when it comes to Ryan.

I have to find out when it is sophomore registration. Turn in some of Nikki's books from last year. Try to get Nikki into a zero period, so she can take an extra class. Help Nikki find a job.

Ride Ambers ass until she actually takes all the paper work back to the college so she can pick her classes.

Take Ambers car in to get fixed since it failed smog. Find the money to get Ambers car fixed.

I need to try to find my birth certificate. I know that it is around here, but I dont know where. Knowing my luck I will find it once I order a new one.

While looking for my birth certificate we found papers that I can't believe we have. My husband is such a pack rat.

Amber swears that her and Cody are not dating, but Cody has been over here everyday since they got back from Europe.

Nikki has been spending her day's at the beach trying to learn to surf. I guess if you have blond hair and a nice tan, you should know how to surf. Then she will look like a real California girls.

Ryan has been spending playing with his new found friends. I am so happy that he is not just sitting around the house!

I have done a few puzzles and have just been lazy. I have no ambition to do much more.

I did get some great news yesterday. I very dear friend called to ask if her and her mom could come for a visit. I was so thrilled! I have not seen her in almost 5 years! I do wish she would bring the baby, but I understand that this her break from the baby. I have never seen or held this baby. I swear the child will be in college before I get to see her. I just can't wait for my dear friend to get here, so we can just sit and laugh again.

Well, my day is calling me. It is saying go vacuum the house, do the dishes, do the laundry, finish your sewing, pull something out for dinner.

That cartoon at the bottom almost made me fall out of my chair, I just love your sense of humor! Hope you get everything done that you need to do and glad the kids are all having a nice summer. Martha :-)

hey, when you are looking for Nikki for a job, will you also look for a job for my dear son? I'll email you later, but he may be heading this way; I don't want to put too much in this entry; perhaps he and Amber can carpool together to school (one can dream about him possibly wanting to go back to school)

wondered what you were up to; school starts too darn soon!!

Your list from your adult conversation sounds like the ones my daughter ends up with when her husband goes out of town. So happy Ryan has some friends to hang with now. Paula

The new school year is just around the corner isn't it?  I'm glad Ryan is spending time with his new friends.

Duty calls! I did get a kick out of that graphic for cats to find cat lady.  Yes, that is you  With three new kittens.  I like hearing about Ryan's problems, getting a teacher etc. I have read a lot of books about these kids.  I know they are very tough to parent.  Some of these struggles are very touching in memoirs.  So called normal kids sometimes have a time finding kids to play with now days with such dangerous neighborhoods especially in the big cities.  I have gathered from some of these memoirs that that throws such a burden on the parent to be everything to the child it can be crack-up time without some good support. That's why I have always stepped in to try to give his parents some relief with Dante.  Playing with other kids used to be a big part of my childhood.  So I could not help but be alarmed when Dante was playing with no kids his age outside of school.  Good luck   Gerry
