[QUOTE=gamblemom;20299200]she was camping out in her empty apartment the rest of the weekend. She told me she was going to interview for a nanny job on Monday up in Denton. I just spent 10's of thousands of dollars getting her a college education and she is thinking of a nanny job? Excuse me while I go




Wow.......don't you want to just strangle them sometime?

I think I talked her out of the nanny job. She is struggling with moving home and relying on us for money until she finds work. I know she doesn't want to ask us for anything else but she needs to get herself settled a little and out of the school mode. She only knows how to be a student, not a grown up. She kind of wants to go to grad school. I think she probably should go to grad school and find a real vocation. It has to be her plan whatever it is.

we went to mass last night and then a potluck dinner after, so Brian is sleeping in. The boy went to get the GF and then go to church. I of course was woke up by my dog that doesn't think we should sleep in on weekends. She lays at the foot of the stairs and barks in little high pitched barks until we get up. She just wants us to follow the routine

switching to a web based email is giving me anxiety, just using my yahoo from now on because we are switching from TWC to At&T for everything. I've had my email for 12 years so I have a ton of places to update. Starting with all things financial. Then trying to get newsletters and stuff after that

We went to the beach last weekend for a little getaway. Just a quiet little spot on the Gulf of Mexico.

so remember when the boy broke his wrist falling off the back of a car last year? well, come to find out he has re-broken the same bone again. We don't know how or when he re-broke it, just that it has been hurting since around July 4th. I kept telling him to take ibuprofen and wear his brace thinking he strained it and it needed to rest. I was most definitely wrong. I finally got him an appointment with his orthopedic doctor yesterday and they took an xray and the bone is fractured. The xray after his cast came off was negative for fracture so we know its been broken again. The scaphoid bone, a carpel bone at the base of the thumb, is notorious for poor healing. It floats in a fluid like area with low blood flow so it doesn't like to heal. I am waiting to get a call about a CT scan to get scheduled, we have a follow up appointment next week with a hand surgeon. He will need a bone graft and a screw to get that bone to heal. If we do nothing it can lead to bone deterioration and future arthritic changes and permanent damage and instability.

It is not good news for him or us. I feel bad letting it go for a month thinking it would get better on its own.

Brian was up this morning to take Blake to a TEC retreat (teens encountering christ), had to drive an hour to the retreat center. The catholic church is the only church I know that doesn't have vans or buses to carry their kids to retreats. We have fund raisers for every possible thing , but never for transportation.

It doesn't feel like Monday. I

My sunglasses fell apart yesterday. I had to run to Kohl's to find some replacements. Everything was on sale. I got the DD a bunch of stuff, found a small black crossbody purse to use in Vegas, and some sunglasses. 30$ Kohl's cash for next time LOL

Kids are back in school so I just have the two little ones at home. Megan is potty training. Hubby is still living in AZ and we are here in OR. I am just finishing crocheting a scarf. I would love to get back into papercrafting for keeping me sane. I just cleaned my office yesterday so I can . . . now it is just a matter of finding time and motivation.

Chobani, Inc. Voluntarily Recalls Greek Yogurt Because of Product Concerns

Not sure what happened. I guess I wasn't getting email notifications and I kept forgetting to check the thread when I was on the computer.
