good morning  
We got some much needed rain on Saturday and a bit more this morning. The thunder and lightning woke me at about 3:30am this morning.

The weekend was good, as short as it was! I think the days are going to drag now as I look forward to my road trip.

I hope everyone has a great day today! It feels like Monday, so I suppose it it.
 
 
Current Mood: awake

Good morning Gary. Sounds like you are finally getting some of this rain that we've been contending with. Also sounds like you needed it more :)

Have you got a date set for your trip yet?

Re:
Good morning Audis. Yes, we need much more rain yet. We are very dry.

We leave on September 13 and will be back on September 22 or there abouts.

Ah, you get back the day before my birthday :) I'm delighted for you that you are able to make this trip.

Good mornin'
I'm glad you got some rain.
Ours finally stopped!
I don't miss it!
We mowed yesterday & BBQ'ed last night:-)
Windows get installed this :AM

Trouble with my son again last night.
I can't afford 150.00 a month to homeschool him.
That's the way I'd have to do it, as I'd have no time to make lesson plans.
He won't go to school.
I don't really know what to do.
I had to tell him last night he'd have to leave because we'd be taking a chance on losing his brother & sister if he stayed & the juvenile authorities came to get him. (they will come eventually)
Therefore we'll have to report him as a runaway to protect ourselves!
Either way you look at it...it's a horrible situation.
I really have nobody to talk this out with.
I'm worried about hubby's health & I'm afraid if he gets involved too much, he'll end up in the hospital or worse.

Anyway, sorry to burden your morning with my troubles.
I'm glad to see you this morning though.:-)
Hope your day goes smoothly for you!

Re: Good mornin'
Good morning Jo. That is quite a dilemma. I guess the $150 is for a prepared lesson plan to teach from? That is a lot!

When we were having trouble with our Jacob and decided it was best to send him away for school at a Christian boarding school, we didn't know how we were going to come up with the money either, but the Lord provided, even when I lost my job for a while there! I'm not totally convinced it was the absolute best for Jacob, but he says he would not change that part of his life if he could, so I suppose it was good for him.

There are more home school lesson plans than there ever were before. Maybe you can find one for less money?

I'll be praying for you all! I know God will provide something for you!

Re: Good mornin'
Although things are not perfect
Because of trial or pain
Continue in thanksgiving
Do not begin to blame
Even when the times are hard
Fierce winds are bound to blow
God is forever able
Hold on to what you know
Imagine life without His love
Joy would cease to be
Keep thanking Him for all the things
Love imparts to thee
Move out of "Camp Complaining"
No weapon that is known
On earth can yield the power
Praise can do alone
Quit looking at the future
Redeem the time at hand
Start every day with worship
To "thank" is a command
Until we see Him coming
Victorious in the sky
We'll run the race with gratitude
X alting God most high
Y es, there'll be good times and yes some will be bad, but...
Z ion waits in glory...where none are ever sad!

"I AM Too blessed to be stressed!" The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor.
The one who kneels to the Lord can stand up to anything. Love and peace be with you forever, Amen.

Well, windows are in:-)
The baby got into the puddy in one of the windows..before I caught what he did...(I thought he was watching a video in his room)
He found my new 20.00 wallet and puddied it.
Ah! well!
I didn't much like it anyway...I'm more worried about my discount Kroger Card...LOL

Hubby & I sit down with our son this :AM...
He's going to give going back to school a whirl...:-)
Thank The Lord above....& thank you for your kind words and support!

Re: Good mornin'
Yes! That is good news indeed Jo! And it's so true about the blessings! Sometimes it's easy to not see them, but they are always there!

New windows. We could use some of those, but I doubt we will get them. We would like to sell this old house. It's so hard to overcome the inertia!

Re: Good mornin'
I need to work on remembering that!:-)

You wouldn't believe all the grief getting that guy here to do those windows was!
Unbelievable!
I'll tell ya, I've definitely felt this Monday!;-)

I'll betcha we've said we were going to sale this old house 10's of times too...but it's quite an episode to do so...
So we continue to hold off!
I understand!

Have a nice evening Gary!
Thank you for being such a wonderful friend to me!

Re: Good mornin'
I hope your evening is relaxing for you! And as to being your friend, the pleasure is all mine!

Re: Good mornin'
After being up till 1:AM Monday...I was sooooo tired last night.
My head touched the pillow & my eyes didn't open until 5:AM.:-)

I'm holding my breath that my son will be able to make it through today.
This is going to be very difficult for him.
I understand, but he needs to realize why he's there & make sure he don't go there again.
I'm sure this will be a very long 9 days.
They may have even added more since he missed 2 days. *sigh*

Have a super good day, Gary!

Re: Good mornin'
Thanks Jo! You have a great one too! Are all your kids except the little guy back in school now?
smilinpessimist on August 20th, 2002 05:23 am (UTC)
Re: Good mornin'
Yes, they are. Ahhhh!
You know I say Ahhhh!, but I do miss them!
The baby is getting busier with each passing day!
I have to keep exercising, just to keep up with him. *smiles*
I honestly don't remember it being this tiring!LOL
Both the kids have to be at school at 7:00.
Hubby does the honors. Bless him!
The baby woke a few minutes after they left.
He don't usually nap these days...
As with everyone....he has his good days & not so good days. I always hope for good ones...haha!

Well, here he is...gotta go...
See ya later today around LJ land!
Take care!:-)

Re: Good mornin'
Our Abby is back in school too. Her bus comes at about 7am which gets her day started about 6am. It does give Pam more time to herself on the days she doesn't work, but it gets her going early!

See you later Jo!
