No way, no how!!! Way scary! Me no likey at all I love the Teacups though

And I have good news to share regarding my mom! The cancer dr. said that she does not need to do any radiation and that he does not see any signs of cancer. The surgery took care of it and her blood work up came back negative for any cancer markers. He will continue to moniter her every 6 months for this first year. We all breathed a huge sigh of relief and I am only going to think positive thoughts that she will continue to be cancer free! Now my parents can truly enjoy their trip to Switzerland in Oct.

If it HAS to be Monday...I hope everyone makes the best of it, especially me, bad work attitude today!

Hugs to all
YEAH for your Mom!!!
So glad to hear.

Annoying about the DD15. Choose your battles wisely.

Vicki congrats on your mom's clean bill of health and good wishes to them on their trip. I LOVE Switzerland. I want to go back soooo bad! Ah someday!

Thanks Cristabel. Yeah you know like they say when life gives you nothing but lemons 90% of the time what else can you do but make Lemonade right? LOL. I know you guys probably think I am the biggest mess that ever walked on the earth but such is my life it seems. There ARE good things obviously. My girls are the lights of my life and I think that is why I am so sad a lot of the time, esp right now, when my health is preventing me from doing stuff with them. I HATED missing their soccer games this weekend ( I don't go to practices cuz of the heat and my migraines) but I have NEVER missed a game. And Shelby has a birthday this Friday and I was thinking if this thing doesn't get better I might have to send Lynn cuz I didn't want her going to Chuck E Cheese by herself. I don't trust strangers and such. I don't know the parents of this little boy and no offense but I don't trust other people to watch my child like I would.

Wed is back to school night and I am REALLY hoping that tonight and the next few days go well cuz again I don't want to miss out on meeting their teachers etc.

Plus this place, all of you my friends and just Disney in general makes all the other crapola worth it. I think too once Lynn moves on again things will get a lot better. Sure there will still be stress here and there but that is one of the biggest things.

She got a job and I think she has ALREADY lost it before she even started. She got a job at KFC when she was living in Yuba City and worked there all of one day because she asked for 2 days off the first week and they said no and fired her. She lied to us and told us she was laid off but Shane's stepdad told us the truth cuz he knew the manager and he was the one that got her the job. I think she has done it AGAIN.

She had her orientation 2 weeks ago and she claimed last week that the manager just magically for some strange reason "wouldn't" put her on the schedule till this week cuz she was being a "B". Yeah right! So then I ask her today when she is working and she says she called them and asked for tonight off to go to the concert and they "supposedly" told her they wanted her to work tonight and since she couldn't they wouldn't schedule her the rest of the week. SORRY, DON'T buy it! I think she either got fired last week or this week for whatever crap she pulled and she is just lying AGAIN.

She kept bragging how she had a job and was going to pay for this or that and I was like don't brag till you have actually WORKED. Well sure as heck she hasn't even worked ONE day and I will guarantee she is probably fired already.

I am not surprised. Plus she NOW says she wants to join the marines. We told her we thought the military would be a good thing for her but the air force or army. NOT the marines. She is hell bent on doing the marines to "prove" to us that she can do it. I told her it is not about getting through basic training it is what the branch can offer you as far as a job etc. But like always she is like talking to a stone! The recruiter told her that the diploma she got from the independant study was not good enough and she had to go BACK to school. Again "I told you so" was ringing in my ears but she won't hear it. So IF she wants to join the military she is going to HAVE to find a way to complete those courses she bailed on. I knew that you can't just drop out half way through your jr year then go for 2 months to a correspondence course and graduate!

Anyway so evenutally when she gets her head out of her butt and figures out what the heck she is going to do with herself MY life will be a WHOLE lot less stressful I know that.

Anyway I am going to go sign up for the halloween exchange. Now THAT is exciting!!

Good heavens! How do you do it?

OK -
Should have multi-quoted but didn't.

Capri - hope you are having an awesome time in DLR! I'm very jealous!
Tina - congrats on a great weekend!
Vicki - Congrats on your mom's clean bill of health
Kelly - hope you are feeling better soon
Jen - I saw on a previous post that you are moving? are you moving out of the Bay Area?
Beth - I will be sending you a PM about the halloween exchange

I know there was more, but can't remember much else! Someone posted about Mickey's Fun Wheel. LOVE THAT RIDE! But I will not ride ToT! Hate free-fall drops!

Things have been crazy since getting back from getting Jack's Service Dog. Finally getting caught up - its amazing how far behind you can get when you are away from home for 3 weeks!

ALSO, we are planning a short trip to DLR over Halloween! My older two kids have Oct 29-30 off from school due to a teacher's conference! So we are heading down south. Thankfully my sister has agreed to watch Jack so we can go and RELAX! (Sorry if that sounds bad - but if you are a parent of a special needs child you will understand.) He and his new Service Dog, Oakley, will be coming with us in November.

Got to go figure out dinner - have I ever mentioned how much I HATE dinnertime?!?

totally can understand it--he will be well taken care of by his Aunt (and will probably have a great time!) And you need a break too.

Thank you! And I am ready for the temps to drop too. My car said it was 100 today when I went to pick up the kids from school.

Thanks Cristabel...and I hate the swinging gondolas of death! I rode them once and I will never do it again! I am not a ferris wheel fan any way and that one is just a ride from he** I swear and I don't swear often.

Thanks Jen! I know you do have to pick your battles BUT good news...when she called to ask me to pick her up from marching band practice she said please and thank you in the same conversation!

Oh and Jen - we are likely coming to DL this weekend. I'll give you a call if we do and hopefully we could meet if only to say hello! Good luck if I don't see you before you run the 1/2 marathon, it's supposed to be a bit cooler this weekend!

Have a fun time during your Halloween DL trip! I love the Halloween decorations and the overlays!

I'm with you on the hating dinnertime thing! I think we should work something out with Tina to ship us meals!
