|Life is great - just live it instead of lying it
I am not going to post anything else here. Amanda - I'm sorry you are so full of hate - I'm sorry you must feel the need to hurt people - I'm sorry you need to lie. I am done here. Becky and Thomas - live your life the way you see fit - much like I told Amanda, you are adults and have the right to live your life you see you deserve. IF it's lying, doing drugs, hurting people - I will accept that. But none of your kids are little anymore - I guess it serves some purpose - I'm just not going to be a part of it anymore. But such is life and we are moving on. I will move and change my number so I'm not associated with this any longer. Continue on your campaign of hurt, lies, deciet - NOT the way I raised my kids. Good luck with life and disrespecting people - hope it works for you.

Had a great Thanksgiving and hope you guys did too. Haven't heard from Becky in some time and hoping to hear about her/from her soon. Hey Amanda, give me a call when you read this please. Hey Thomas - you are scaring me little buddy - YIKES. Take care of yourselves and drop us a call. Current Mood: confused

Halloween has come and gone and the little girls had a blast. It was supposed to rain - of course - and yet the night was clear for their whole night. They filled their buckets with candy and considering the rate they eat it, we will be throwing out candy again this year. Marissa is home sick today with a cold and so she's sleeping the day away. Makala has been wearing her costume now every day, which is a "fairy-witch-vampire-princess" whatever that is. Mary is all done with the dentist, and hopefully only one more visit with the specialist. Hope everyone had a great Halloween and I'm so happy that you guys got your package. I'll send another one for Thanksgiving. Be safe and be good. Current Mood: cheerful

Well, start of another week. We had a great weekend and hope you guys did too. Becky and Thomas, Makala and I are making cookies this week to send to you on Saturday. So far we have butterscoth oatmeal and swirl chocolate chip cookies. Anything else you guys think would be yummy, let us know. Mary has a dental appointment today and she's happy about that. I don't know if I could like someone who hurts me so much - but Mary is resilient. She only has one more visit after this, then she just has to finish up with the Endontist next month. Marissa is doing good, she will be off grounding Friday, and I'm sure she won't go off to a football practice again without making sure she can. Makala got a Big Wheel for her birthday, so she's riding that every chance she gets. Hope everyone has a great week. Love you so much and hugs to all of you. Current Mood: creative

Whew - birthday week is over. I think this is one of the best birthdays we have have. I got to talk to THOMAS on OUR day!! It was the best gift and the only one I really wanted. I am sorry that we couldn't have been able to do that for Becky - I know how much it means to ALL OF US. Got Becky and Thomas's grades --------- WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THAT??!!? We are getting a Halloween package ready for Becky and Thomas and we will mail it out on 10-15!! Been a few years since I've tried to send something, but after Thomas's call, maybe things have changed. Makala got a Big Wheel for her birthday and she loves it!! I got a digital camera - I know that EVERYBODY knows because I've been sending pictures like mad. Life is really good for me and hope you all are enjoying yours. Love you guys so much.

|Happy Birthday to Thomas and Me
W00T go Mommy and Tommy!! Hope your birthday is going as good as mine is Thomas. Makala is sleeping in today as she had a seizure last night (she still hasn't woken up yet). The girls are doing great in school and Marissa got her pictures back and they are awesome (she actually smiled this time). Got a birthday card from mom - now that's kinda creepy, but it was all good. I hope you enjoy your card Thomas, and we'll call when the girls all get home from school. Should be around 6PM your time. Everyone have a great day. Love yas. Current Mood: excited

Well, Jeannie STILL throws parties for Mary and Makala and is throwing one for her today. It's an 'early birthday' party. Makala is very excited and has her best dress on. She is still getting into Mary and Marissa's things - which doesn't set real well with them. Marissa put a lock on her door though, so now at least that issue is done. Marissa and I went to her Ciriculum Night last night and saw a car that had smashed into the bridge on 39th Street. A cop stopped us and asked, "Is that your car?" WHAT!! We are WALKING here dude, just got done at the school. There wasn't anyone around. Marissa and I even beat Alex home and we walked. *In case you forgot, Alex is Tasha and Lizzy's little brother* Things are going good and enjoying the cooler weather. Thomas has a new LiveJournal but it scares me *looks side to side*. Haven't heard from little bits in a while --- drop me a line becca when you get the chance. Love you guys and talk laterz.

It is getting cooler now which is wonderful. They say we can expect rain on Friday morning so we are going to get all our walks in. We usually go for walks after dinner - Mary and Marissa riding their bikes and Makala running behind them. I found out my former boss is quitting too - very hard and stressful job. I still don't see how my kids tolerated the intrusion for so long. I did get a job offer, but it's a Regional DNS which would mean that I am responsible for 7 buildings instead of one. The girls and I have really enjoyed this break and whatever job I take will be LESS hours an commitment - not MORE. I also was offered a job at the hospital - but as a Department Manager. What does I DO NOT WANT A MANAGEMENT job mean? I think it means, I DO NOT WANT A MANAGEMENT JOB, but I could be wrong. Makala has two wiggle teeth and she's thrilled about that. Marissa is doing great and staying busy. Love you guys and hope you are having a great day. Current Mood: mischievous

|Whoa - long time!
Hey Thomas, I'm e-mailing you as soon as I get off here - thanks for the addy. I miss your blogs little guy, altho u really should change your pic (haha). Mary has two appointments with the dentist/endontist this week, but is amazingly pulling through so good. She is so skinny Becca - she reminds me so much of you at this age - only thinner, but she's also much taller than you were at this age. Marissa thinks she's "short" at 5'4" even though I remind her that's all the taller you are. Makala is still just a little ray of sunshine and can't STAND IT that Mary has to go to school all day. They are so very close. Marissa is doing fabulous in school, except that she doesn't have any friends in her classes (but I think that's a good thing!). Hey Becca - are you going to work somewhere else? Keep saving honey, you are doing a great job. Marissa had to give half of what she earned this summer into her savings and she has $200! I know it's nothing compared to yours, but she was shocked how much she had. Love you guys and see ya soon. Sorry, neither Marissa or I could get Mary's journal up. Current Mood: content

|Life is good!
Mary has a long road ahead of her. The endondist will be working with her along with her dentist. Apparently her roots of her teeth are the problem. She did let the endonist pull out the hanging baby tooth though - that was cool. The girls toilet finally got fixed - THAT was totally gross. God bless Brett for that. He had to take the toilet off and clean it out-ickyicky YUCK!! Marissa is loving school and hating volleyball but she's going to stick with it. I called on a job today though I'm not too sure I'm ready to give up being home with the girls. But I have to get back to work. I applied for an IV Nurse Manager and they like me - ugh. It's a job during the week, when what I really wanted was a weekend job since the girls are usually with Brad then, but I will just have to steal his weekends too - evil laugh. Brad is great about the girls though. He knows how important their relationship is with me and lets them stay with me all the time. Hope you guys are all having a great day. Love each of you, but Makala is my favorite. ROFL!!! Current Mood: bouncy

Hello and good morning!! Marissa - I'm very proud of you. Life is going to throw you some funky stuff sometimes, but always remember the 1st rule - BE HONEST 2nd rule - ALWAYS BE RESPECTFUL - and that also goes when the other person doesn't deserve respect. I love you Marissa and I hope you have a great party tonight (sorry about the dead rats, mice, birds and snakes). Loving you Mary, Makala, Thomas, Becca and Amanda. Have a good Saturday kidos.

Hey kiddos!! Mary has a jounral - mountain_lion_8 but mom is having a struggle with getting it up and running for her. Marissa will fix it for her tomorrow I am sure! Our day has been pretty easy - no drama or unexpected surprises. God bless you all and have a great weekend. Love you. Current Mood: complacent

Marissa had her sports physical yesterday so now she can play volleyball!! She's also going to do track, basketball and swimming when those seasons start. Marissa is happy school is back on, and is busy planning her slumber party for the weekend. Mary is still recovering from her first dental visit. The dentist referred her to an Endontist because of the extent of the damage on her molar. So, next week she has TWO dental visits. She did so good and never did complain. The amount of damage could have been avoided if her prior dentist had noticed that her teeth came in "decalcified" so they didn't have much protection. It will be a long road for her. Makala is ............ Makala and doing well. Love you guys and have a great day. Hope you guys are having a great day. Special thoughts out to Amanda, Becky and Thomas. Current Mood: disappointed

|First Day of School!!
Marissa is all excited for school. It's nice to see her loving school so much. She is getting a great sense of humor and has been such a good daughter. Mary goes to the dentist today - ugh - but I'm sure she'll pull through like a champ. Amazing how stable kids are when both parents love them and are adult enough not to play games and tell lies. I'm so grateful for Brad and his personality. He allows our children to love both parents without guilt, lies or games. Watch out for Missy - she's really going to make something of herself!! I am so proud of all my kids - and love them - even though they do things that are TOTALLY against everything I've raised them to be. I KNOW I won't have those problems with the younger three. Hope everyone is having a great day. I'm off to get Mary to the dentist. Current Mood: chipper

|Watching the Grudge
We had a great day! Made a huge turkey dinner and had friends over. Mary was upset today cuz Princie killed a bird and a snake. Mary will be spending the month of September with the dentist and endontist. We played a card game after dinner and Marissa came in 2nd (ahead of her mom AND dad). Love you guys and take care.
