If you can't convince them, confuse them

I'm freezing.

It's flipping cold out!! Charlie turned off the air and has opened all of the windows. I'm afraid to go around and shut them because it might get way to hot. In the mean time, my feet are FREEEZING! (my hands are ice, too)

I'm sitting here this morning listening to Tim Mcgraw. I haven't done that in a while. I just love to listen to his music. Right now, "Walk like a man" is on. It's just such a smooth song. I like the part where he says.. "God gave boys their mamas cause they always see their promise and they help them understand--- how to walk like a man" I like that line :) It's nice and relaxing. I've needed a low, calm, do nothing day. The last week has exhausted me. I'm feeling better each though. Not so tired.

When all our tears have reached the sea
Part of you will live in me
Way down deep inside my heart
The days keep coming without fail
A new wind is gonna find your sail
That’s where your journey starts

You’ll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me

Just like the waves down by the shore
We’re gonna keep on coming back for more
’cause we don’t ever wanna stop
Out in this brave new world you seek
Oh the valleys and the peaks
And I can see you on the top

You’ll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me

Remember me when you’re out walkin’
When the snow falls high outside your door
Late at night when you’re not sleepin
’And moonlight falls across your floor
When I can’t hurt you anymore
You’ll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me
Please remember me

Man am I tired

Charlie's grandmother has been here for a week, I think. Man I'm exhausted. Who would have thought you could get so tired from just driving around. We looked at some houses earlier in the week and she put in an offer on one yesterday. It was accepted today so she'll be moving on November 15th. (well, at least that's her closing date). I don't Charlie has any idea what he's gotten into. Or better yet---- What he's gotten ME into! Her new house is beautiful! I'm excited she'll be close but it will be sooo much work I think.

Tonight we're going out to dinner with Cecil and Rob and Grandma. Saturday we went out to dinner with Bob and Shannon and Grandma. Mark my word, I'm SOOOO sick of going out to eat I'll be glad when this week is OVAH! We have almost run out of places to go. I'm started to recognize faces at Olive Garden and Texas steak house. That's a bad sign.

Brooke had her IEP meeting last week. They said she's doing really well. They are no longer pulling her from the room for resource help and have just started to give her a bit of extra help in the classroom for a period of time each day. She's still doing her speech therapy but her therapist said she can't believe how far she's come. Yipeeee! That's exciting! I have Megan's IEP I THINK October 13th. I'm not sure on the exact date. That should be interesting. She's doing so much better. I'm confident that I made the right choice in having her held back.

All of the new TV shows started recently. I'm returning to Tvjunkie land. I hate Oprahs' new set. What is she thinking? Dr Phil has become so "Jerry Springer-leftover'ish" lately too. How disappointing. His son is still hot though :)

The temps this week are more bearable, speaking of hot. I think it's going to be in the mid to upper 80's. Last week it was still in the mid 90s. I'd still take the heat ANY DAY over the snow!

I'm tired. I want to take a nap but it's almost time for Nathan to get home from school. Anthony is home already. I had to pick him up around 1'ish because he got sick at school. I actually had to get him early on Friday, too. He said his back hurt him. whine whine whine. I wonder if something is going on at school that he doesn't want to be there OR if something is going around. The lady at the desk said a lot of kids were sick with stomach bugs.

It's hard to believe Charlie's been home now for 6 weeks. He's only had to do a small amount of traveling. I don't really remember what it was like with out him here. We've had a heck of a time taming Brittany. That reminds me. I should probably call the dance studio. I think I'm going to sign the girls up for dance classes. they need something to keep them busy. That's for darn sure. I have these fake finger nails on that I got done for the Tim concert... they make it impossible to type. I've found myself doing less and less on the computer that requires typing LOL I should go get them fixed tomorrow.
Tomorrow is Brooke's IEP. It will be interesting to see how it all goes since we have a new resource teacher and the principal won't be there either. I'm not in the mood to be bull shitted so I hope they get in there and get to the point. She's been doing reallllly well in school. I'm excited. We still haven't set up a date for Megan's IEP yet. They need to get it done ASAP or they will have me in their office pretty soon.

I know I have more to type about but I forget LOL so for now? ta ta

Well it's 12:15 and I'm heading out to lunch with Shannon. I've been going to the gym this week with Thomas. I neeeeeeeed to lose weight. So far I'm down 19 pounds. No one else on my list things it but i know it lol.

I went to the Tim McGraw concert and it was AWESOME! We were far off to the side but managed to get up to FRONT ROW~!!!! I'm so glad. I'll probably never be that close again! The show was fabulous and i do have some pictures.

Is this the Darwin theory?

Survival of the fittest. This is just horrible. I don't know that I BLAME anyone. This is an act of God. This is a reminder of who is in charge. NOT George Bush, not Homeland security. You'd better find faith and you'd better find it soon. If you're not around that area-- You've probably talked to God in the last few days and maybe even thanked him. I know I have. I want to help. I wish I could do something. I think we need to bring some of our troops home to take care of our country. I just can't turn myself away from the coerage. What can we do. How can we help? We did give $100 to the red cross. Ya know it's not enough. They say it's 94 in New Orleans today. I can't imagine those poor babies, the poor people.
