Thank you all for your advice and I quit today. I know i need the money, but its actually just mad money Daniel does very well providing for us. We can make it on his income. I just have to plan on making it with his income. I actually sent her a text. I know what you are thinking, how mean and how gutless, but let me explain here. When I call her she does not answer either phone nor will she return my calls, this has been going on since I started keeping the kids. Tuesday when i was supposed to keep them, I got a text 20 mins before they were supposed to come saying that she would not be bringing them. Today I did not even get that. No call, no text. I told her in the text that I would not be able to keep her kids anymore because I needed to know when I work, because I depend on the income and also i need to be able to plan things with my family. So far, I have not heard a thing from her yet. Oh well. Daniel is cool with it, he does not blame me at all. If I wanted to be this stressed, I would go out into the work force and find a job outside the home. I then would also have the added stress of finding a sitter myself. So its back to pinching pennies. I want to thank you all again for all your support and advice. Love you guys!!

Hey guys

I hope everyone is doing great! I am good, school let out on Tuesday for the summer, so I am a little stressed out right now. Nothing to worry about though. I have just gotten used to my quiet time is all. I have started a new rule at my house. My kids fight over everything under the sun, so from now on, community service is in full force. They fight, they stop doing what ever fun thing they were doing and I make them clean. If they wake me up before 9 in the morning, unless it is a true emergency, then they have dish duty for the day. I am hoping that this will help to keep them in line. We will see.
I have been trying to find an online job that is legit, and does not cost an arm and a leg to start. Any suggestions?? I found one called four points mom that sounds really good, but I have not got a phone call from them yet. I am hoping that they call because I think that it would be a good one to get into.
It is supposed to be hot here all week. In the 80s, thank God the pool is up and running now. We have a pretty big one, its 4 1/2 feet deep and like 24ft around, i think. We switched over to chlorine free this year. I haven't been in yet this year, but the kids have and they liked it.
I need some advice today. You all know that I have been baby sitting, right? Well its getting frustrating. The kids are great, that is not it at all. Its just that I get paid $120 every two weeks and really count on this money. Well from the get go, the mom has waited until the last minute to let me know when I am supposed to keep the kids. That is the frustrating part. Then it gets worse. I was supposed to keep them this Tuesday, but that morning of course i call her because i haven't heard from here to make sure that I am still keeping them and she says well there dad may be off today i am not sure. I will call you back and let you know. I got a text 30 mins before she was supposed to keep them saying that she didn't need me that day. I am supposed to keep them tomorrow, but who knows. What should I do guys like I said I need this money but I also need to be able to plan what I can do with my own kids. If I don't keep them, then I don't get paid. Its just getting aggravating. She also has switched jobs and gets off at 8 in the evening now. She took for granted that those hours would be fine with me, but they are not so I have to take the kids to their grandmothers at 6 when I do keep them. I just want some outside advice. Would you keep them??

I got an award to from Lisa. I love it, she is such a sweet person! If you guys don't know Lisa yet, go by and check her out!!

Thank you Lisa!!!!!

Sexy red hills

Shoes, pause think about this, are shoes merely what we put on our feet, or are they more? Can shoes represent our mood, and where we have been? Well certainly if our shoes are muddy, then yes they do tell where we have been, we have been somewhere in the mud!! I really do think that they represent our mood quit frequently. If you are feeling fun and flirty, maybe a nice wedge would be the choice. Perhaps a pair like this.

Or maybe if you are having a lazy day, a cute pair of flip flops.

Of course neither of these would work if you are in the mood for outside activities. A more suitable choice would be tennis shoes.

Also a good pair of shoes can really make a woman feel very good about herself. My favorite way to make myself feel special and sexy is high heels!! High heels are my favorite kind of shoe. They make me feel pretty. They work great with dresses and jeans.

Now guys on the other hand can not appreciate shoes like a woman can. My husband thinks that I have way to many shoes, my motto is one can never have enough shoes! i have tons, but want more. My shoes make me feel happy, I know that sounds silly. I buy shoes when I am sad. It makes me feel better. And in the words of Cinderella, a good pair of shoes really can change a girl's life!

hello all

I am not doing anything much today just babysitting. I am so glad that I do not have to work outside the home right now. It is so stressful on the kids. The little boy that I keep does ok if his mom drops him off, but when his dad does, its really heart breaking. He hangs on for dear life, crying his little eyes out. It is really sad, and his poor ol daddy is tore all to pieces when he leaves. It usually only lasts about 20 mins or so, but it is still sad. I am feeling down in the dumps today. I think it is because of Draven still, I am just so worried about him. I am also really tired today, I stay that way a lot lately and I just want to sleep. One of Kirk's friends is coming home with him tonight. He is all excited about that. So how is the weather where you guys are? It is cold and rainy here. It has been that way all week long. Maybe that is another reason why I feel down in the dumps today. Who knows? I just know that I am sooo ready for some sun shine. It is supposed to be back up in the 80s by next Thursday. That we will be good because we are going to a fossil museum and dig some bones. Then Friday we are going to the pool for a private pool party that the school is having for the fourth grade! That should be fun!

Oh did you guys see the news today? New Kids on the Block have gotten back together. That's fine, except when I watched the show I was not impressed at all. Their singing is not what it used to be. Also they need a new name, those guys are older than me. New kids on the block???? Yeah they need a new name.

K enough rambling I will go visit for a while now and maybe look for a publisher for my children's book wish me luck!!

Prayers are needed

I would like for you all to please pray for Draven my oldest son! He is not doing well at all. He had a doctor's appointment yesterday and we got a bad report. All of what we discussed yesterday is treatable, but it is has got my little man down and feeling sad. First of all he is very over weight for his age. He also has a dark ring around his neck which is very bad. That means that his body is starting to become insulin resistant. His migraines are getting worse, so he had to be put on amytriptalin, which is an antidepressant that doubles as a pain blocker, which in turn should prevent the migraines if all goes well. He has to have an ekg done to see if there is any heart problems. His blood pressure was borderline high. Diabetes heart disease, and high blood pressure all run on both sides of the family. We have to have fasting blood work done on him to check his thyroid, cholesterol, and sugar levels. He is upset with all of this, but mostly it is his weight that is bothering him so bad. He does not eat a lot, he is outside a lot and we don't know what we need to do to get the weight off. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. I just feel so sorry for him. Please say a little prayer for him when you pray tonight. He needs all he can get! Thank you.

I hope everyone had a great mothers day!! I know I did. The festivities actually started on Friday here. I picked the kids up Friday from school and the two oldest wrote me letters for mothers day. Dravens was this,

My mother, always there for me
On my heart all the time
Tender hearted and loving
Here on Mothers day, your day
Even thought it is Kirks day too
Remembering to celebrate
So here's a coloring book for you
You on your day!

It was a coloring and Mothers day was also Kirks birthday!

Here is what Kirk wrote for me

My mom

Do you have someone who does good things for you? That person is my mom. She is Very funny. I love her very much. She has brown hair and brown eyes. My mom is sorta tall. My mom is skinny. Her face and smile make her pretty. My mom is funny, She tells funny jokes. She makes everyone laugh. She calls me a Dork Fish! My mom is the funniest mom ever! My mom and I watch TV together. We like to play board games. My mom and I like to swing together. We like to swim together too. That is my mom!
Happy Mothers Day

They both made me cry. Kirkland also got me a beautiful flower and Grayson got me a beautiful one as well.

After I got all my goodies we met Daniel. Draven and Daniel got contacts Friday night. I got new glasses, they told me contacts would not help. Saturday, we had a birthday party at five. It lasted until 10! What a party, we all had a blast. Kirk got lots of nice things. He got a new controller for his xbox 360. He got a tent, an ant farm, 2 shirts, 2 beach towels, 2 pair of swim trunks, 20 dollars, a stuffed dogie, 6 chicks and chicken feed. He probably got more, but that is all I can think of right now. Hope, he loves those lil chicks and feeds and waters them himself.

I also got a present Saturday. I got the most awesome purse from my mom and dad for mothers day. It is so cute. Tan, with pink trim, lime green polka dots on the trim, fuzzy stuff around the top. Its so pretty and the best part is the verse on the front. It says I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

We went to church Sunday morning and we had a really good service. The kids also got things from church to give to me. I got more flowers and some jewelry. After church we went to my mamaws and then to my friend Lisa's house. It was nice.

OHHH my husband fixed my breakfast yesterday, I didn't have to do it!! He made Sausage balls and then last night he made me chili! I didn't have to lift a finger all day!!

I hope your day was as great as mine!!
