I told you it was green!

here it is - you can see the top photos with Kermit that it is his " green" ! Check out the little dresser with the green knobs. this was a dresser my parents purchased whe my youngest brother was just a baby- we painted it white and the knobs have been lots of different colors depending on where and who's room it is in, so now there are green knobs.
in the closet the bar got painted green! and all the white accessories are a nice contrast to the green, we like the navy blue spread and curtain. so over all I would say this is a. ok. !
The computer Desk was made for this space, though it has seen other places in the house - it is ideal here in this space. SSD2 loves the computer and his dad is good about making sure he is connected.

Kermit Green

This is the color of the Room for SSD2- since the bigesst boy moved out and the youngest wants the bigest space, and we need a guest bed set up, we worked hard last week to wash walls and re-paint.
this was an oops color we found at home depot - and yes it really is this shade we even took SSD2 real kermit and put him on the bed and low and behold it was this green!
I will take a picture or two over the weekend and see If I can capture the New look.
I am off on Friday the 4th for the holiday and we are aiming to paint the larger of the rooms then for move in the following week by Hh - I am not sure , but she is pretty happy to get the master bedroom.

My hits still include colorology, all of us SSD2, Hh and I have color in the purple range being that we are Feb Babies, but this is the opposite color on the color wheel from the purple, so I think that is why we all are drawn too it. SSD2 was very pleased with color and is even in the groove with making sure the bed gets made and the room stays neat.

Using the Flex account??

Where did all the money go in this account? Why can't I get the right amount to balance through out the year?

S will be getting some New teeth - starting this year going over to the next year. tomorrow is the 1st in a series of steps with his teeth. He gets one quadrant pulled, then next week another and then sometime in the new plan year ( august) he will get the final pulled in front and a new set of crazy good choppers.

Me I will be getting that all to fun Mamogram- slam and regular other check up on thursday morning. I have had an issue that I will discuss with my doc and hope to resolve. I am now in the Peri-menoposal stages of my life I believe and I am having an issue that must be dealt with or I am not going to be able to function-- give you details on another day.

I am back up with E-mail

I will post a bit more soon, but my-e-mail is back online.

Building up

Don't lose a minute in building on what you've been given,
complementing your basic faith with good character,
spiritual understanding, alert discipline,
passionate patience, reverent wonder,
warm friendliness, and generous love,
each dimension fitting into and developing the others.

Boys will be Boys

Sometimes it is very hard to be a Mom / stepmom. I really don't seem to get the need for the boys to " lie" about things?

SSD1 is on the move - as in out of here-- He will be moving back in with his mother, not sure at what success this will be, or how long it will last, but I am at the end of my tolerance for boy bad behavior.... and she can have a little taste of a do nothing attitude and I am all done with school...She can buy 3.50$ milk and 4.00 gas to feed him and run him around. I am ready to be done with it for a while. we have had him in our home for 4 years now, and I believe we were instrumental in his high school success. It is hard to see him just want to blow it all out and take an easy route, instead of working to a goal. But some times you just have to let some of the dreams and hopes go by the wayside and hope to GOD that you have equiped these kids well, and they will do o.k. it will just take a bit of time.

right now though I am done with lies - I would rather have the disapointing truth and know the real failure than be lied to because it is easier than disapointing me and Dad and ( the worst is lying to yourself) others. It is easier to believe our own lies and deceits that acknowledge our short commings, maybe some of the " truths of life" will come with age and maturity, I can only send my prayers up for GOD to take care of him and help him to know his strengths as well as his weaknesses.

the Lion Cut? the Clown cut LOL ?

This is Zuzzie, she was so very matted, that we gave in and had her shaved~~ S and I have shaved her ourselves a couple of summers ago and it was good, this is great and was so worth the money she was in a horrible state.
she is funny now and loves the fact that we all " want to pet her" since she stays inside I think I may try to maintain her look for a while. We had a ton cat hair all over because she is one fluffy cat. not now, this is so much better.
