At the start of the week...

Things here have settled down since the flooding, though we are still waiting for the insurance adjuster's estimates. 
Max is getting HUGE! He weighs over 15 pounds now. We are working on getting him to stop biting pants legs and the grandkids. He gets really excited when he sees someone walking and tries to grab their leg as they go by and ends up being dragged as he hangs on the pants leg. That has to stop. He has some really sharp puppy teeth.
Ian will be home on the 6th! I have really missed him, having not seen him since Spring Break. He will be here for a little over 6 weeks this time. YAY!
Well, not a lot else going on here, so I will say goodnight :) Have a great week everyone!

And so the week ends

Yesterday we went out in the garage to find 3 inches of water filling it. Apparently, sometime during the night the supply line for the water heater burst, spraying water into the closet and eventually out into the garage. We lost all the flooring we were getting ready to install in the house, my son in law lost a MIG welder and bunch of stuff. All in all, it wasn't bad, but it was enough to make us take stock in how we keep things in there. Luckily most of our things were in 30 gallon plastic totes. Otherwise I would have lost all my mom's things that I have been keeping in there. 
On a higher note, my son Sean was inducted into the Junior National Honor Society last night. I am really proud of him. He is a great kid.
Marshall was off today, having hurt his back clearing out the garage yesterday. He is also sunburnt. Poor man. He has to stand at work for 8 hours tomorrow and his legs are cramping and he is miserable. He won't even get a good night's sleep tonight because we are taking Sean to a lock-in tonight at 10 and picking him up at 1am. Oh yeah. 
Heather spent the day with her boyfriend and his family for his birthday today. So far he seems to be ok. Time will tell.
Well, gotta go get dinner out of the oven. Have a good day tomorrow everyone!

Time Flies

Wow does time fly. I can't believe it has been almost a month since I have written here. Lots going on since it's the end of the school year for Sean and Bryan. Field trips, end of year parties, all kinds of fun. Not a lot of learning in these last couple of weeks though. Bryan will be going to summer school this year to work on his reading, and Sean is taking a class for high school during a special camp just for the kids in DATA. Bryan has changed schools and loves the new one. I am so glad to not have to fight him every morning to get him out the door. Lucky for us, the school he is in now goes all the way to 12th grade. YAY! 
Heather is getting ready to go to Phase 2 next month in her cosmetology school. She is doing really well, but is tired of all the drama. 
Speaking of drama, we have a lot going on here with Jess and Jason. I think they are around each other too much and they are wearing on each others' nerves. That happens to me and Marshall if we don't get time away too. Well, 6AM comes early, so I am going to get ready for bed soon. 'night all!

Cleaning Day

Today is cleaning day around here. Hubby is also doing haircuts for the boys. We have a new puppy here named Max, who is currently hiding from the grandkids. They are too little to understand that he is too little to be rough with. 
My garden is flourishing. We harvested three red bell peppers yesterday and a handful each of mint and thai basil. The winds we have been having here for the last two weeks have blown my corn patch a little and the stalks are leaning. I wonder if they will right themselves. 
Jess and Jason and the kids have moved back in again. That makes 9 in the house now. To say the least, it is a little cramped and very strained financially.
Well, gotta get back to the dishes. Have a great day everyone!
