First Day Of School

Ok well I did it. I SURVIVED THE FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL. Well not for me but for Adrianna. It was a very monumuental moment. Not just the first day back but at a new school. She is now in Intermediate school ( I know kinda wierd it is 5th, 6th, 7th) University Place did boundry changes too so now she is not even at the original school she would have gone to with all her friends either. She knows no one here. She is really excited though. A whole new group of kids she gets to meet and get to know. She is so outgoing I know she'll do fine ( I am still crying as I write this ) I think she did better at it than her dad and I did. We both took her to school walked around with her. Got to know the layout and where everything is. I think dad even cried too. Anyway I'll have more posted soon on her first day at school. She has only been there for about 3 hours. Please let me know how some of you have survived the first days of school.

Back to School

Wow I can't believe it is almost time for school to start. The summer and the year has gone by so fast. Any more I feel as if I blink and my life has just zoomed by. Adrianna is now getting ready to start 5th grade in a new school. Here in University Place it is K-4, 5-7, 8-9, and 10-12. I know wierd huh! Here she is anyways growing up so quick right before my eyes. My James too, is getting ready to start 8th grade. Who told my babies they could grow up. It makes lying about my age harder and harder (HA HA on me huh). They, however are not the only ones preparing for school. September 24 is my first day of school. When I graduate in 2 years I should have my AA in Liberal Arts. My major is Nursing though. I pray every day that I will be able to accomplish this task of balancing, school, work, and parenting. Whew!!!! I know I can just with a little faith which I am finding is growing stronger every day. OK I have got a kiddo that is tugging at my shirt sleave so I guess I must go. No more 4 month procrasinations on the blogg.

Is It Friday Yet?!

Ok I am so worn out I am just ready for this week to end. I don't know what did it but I just feel physically and emotionally drained right now. I haven't slept to well since Adrianna went to her dad's. I know she is doing good and having fun with her little nephews, I just feel a little lost when she is gone. I am so used to being the one to wake up with her, and get her ready, and make her dinner. I know that anyone can do that for her but I am her mom and I want to be the one to do that all the time. I know I sound like I am not sharing to well right now and that is probably very true. The fact that my ex-husband and I are fighting doesn't help either. He can be so difficult sometimes. Over all I still think he is a good guy who deserves happiness, right now however he really irritates me. Oh I did watch a couple of movies last night. Reservation Road and Partition. Reservation Road was ok. A bit long and very predictable. Partition however I absolutely loved. It is set in 1947 in India. During the seperation of the Muslims and the Sikis. The ethnic tention and hatred are there but it turns into a beautiful bittersweet love story. I still haven't seen Kite Runner but I think it might be similar. I am waiting until Adrianna comes home before I rent Water Horse. She already saw it with her dad, but I would like to watch it with her too. So maybe that will be a Saturday night movie.

General Confrence...... What A Blessing

I know it has been awhile since I wrote. Like the end of March. I really enjoyed my week off. I was able to sleep in an extra 2 hours and when getting up is at 5 am sleeping in until 7:15 is beautiful. I am now back at work though. I really don't mind however. A week was a little too long I think I could have handled more like 3 week days and a weekend just fine. I still get to sleep in a little extra since Adrianna is on spreing break and staying with her dad. Pretty nice. I am learning to appreciate that little break time away from her. I still miss her of course. I was sick this weekend though and missed most of Genenral Confrence. I am going to go on-line and watch it though. I really love watching it. I have such good memories of the last 3 I saw with a really sweet friend of mine who I miss very much. I hope all is going well with everyone. I talked to Adrianna and I am starting to save for the next General Confrence. SHE WANTS TO GO!!!! YEAY!!!!

Oh my gosh! WOW I am so excited! Finally a break. Wow it feerls so good to be able to sleep in (well an extra 2 hours. I am still up at 7 to get Adrianna off to school), get errands done, and do some enrichment projects. This is so nice. I don't feel stressed about getting Adrianna up and ready for school. I am in such a relaxed state. So in other words all is going well. I checked out the classes I wanted to take and bummer..... they don't start until fall time. I was so excited. Well I'll just look on-line for some colleges in Utah and see what they have. Adrianna is doning well in school. Life is pretty much very quiet right now. I love it. Ok less daily issues with kids being kids. I think Adrianna and I will go to the waterfront and take a nice long walk. It is so beautiful today. No more snow. Well I am going to go enjoy my freedom while it lasts.

Seriously there is something wrong here when we have established Spring, had Easter and we are still waking up to snow. Now I know it is not Utah snow but for us 1 inch in the morning is alot. I mean seriously! It has been snowing and raining off and on all day today. I just want my vacation to begin so I can just ignore the chaos. I hope all had wonderful Easters. I would love to hear about them.
