is not upon us! Yippee! It's beautiful here with a slight breeze.
News? There's good news... Stacy finally got a 2.0 (barely) and Rey got a 3.o. Both girls lettered in swimming (Varsity) and made it to League Finals. And get this one... their room is REALLY clean. It's been clean for 3 weeks now.
Marissa is finally in panties (she's been potty-trained for a while and just refused to wear them). She also will finally go in a pool and paddles around with her life vest on. (I'm working on getting her in a class, just have to come up with the cash first.)
I've been working some weekends officialing for swimming (one weekend a month), which helps put food on the table.
Juan is stressed, as with most union workers, contract negotiation time is stressful... and it's coming up soon (October, to be exact). He did a wonderful job designing a new grill for my bbq, made out of cast iron and said to last forever...
So much has happened. Mother's day forgot me. Oh well. I did get a card from my nephews (Jake and Max).
Father's Day has passed... I hope my dad had a happy one... I mailed a card. Juan got a nice dinner the night before.
Bad news? Sad news... my uncle passed a couple of weeks ago. I remember him from when I was little. It's sad how it happened. A total accident, but it happened.
Also, my mom's hubby's sister... her suffering should be over. So sad.
I sure hope things don't come in 3's. For real. This is enough.
I learned a new technique for crafting, so you'll have to check that blog in a couple of hours... or tomorrow.
The weight loss is at a standstill. I just don't have the drive, and it's downright depressing. I'm sure most of you can relate.
So let's get back to the good news... my brother and his wife have the cutest baby... my friend had one, too. And everyone I know (at least 5 other people) are preggers again. I won't be drinking their water if I go to visit.
I'm trying to get Marissa into preshcool for the fall. Wish me luck! Maybe will be co-oping it, but hey... a little better than just at home.
That's all I can think of for now... Toodles for now! lisa
