Good Grades!!!

Well I have gotten all of my midterm grades back. I took four of them for three classes. I got three 85% and one 88%. I am so happy because I don't feel like I am getting adequate study time. The funny thing is when I did feel like I was getting better study time my normal grade was 70-75%...funny isn't it. Well I can see the end in sight. I filled out the paperwork to graduate. I have to turn it in and pay my $25 and I'm good to go. Graduation is June 13, 2008...from the college then I have the program graduation on August 20, 2008 (I think thats the day). I have this overwhelming since of accomplishment...I hope it doesn't bite me in the butt for saying that.

Well here it is friday and I feel great. We are going shopping to get a few new clothes for us (Lee and I). My mom is going with us to get a few easter items for her baskets. For a change I feel like we are doing fine. We haven't had to worry about much. Nothing has really changed but it just seems easier for some reason. Of course now that I say it we will have issues. I applied at one of the hospitals here in Detroit. I hope I get it. They are hiring 4 students so I have a good chance. The 2 students from my class are putting in a good word for me and the other girl from school that applied. I just wanted to update my blog I really don't have much more to say.

A few months ago my Dad bought a WiFi printer so us laptop users could print with out saving to a thumb drive and going to the main computer. Well we finally set it up today. Very aggervating (sp). The main computer took to it issues printing, setting up or anything. My laptop would print the test page but not anything from word. I finally got it to work but only if I have it on print on both I gave up and said I'll try again later. So then we move on to Lee's laptop...he installs the software but it won't find the network...So after uninstalling and reinstalling a few times we give up to try again later. Well Lee went and laid down with Kenny and I get my computer out and start again. I have it working...sort of. If you want to make multiple copies you need to copy and paste to make multiple pages of the same thing then print it. I have to read up on how to fix that. So next on to Lee's...his problem was his computer didn't have our new router linked to it so I had to link them together then install the printer and it works no issues. When my Dad gets back from the store we are going to try to hook up his computer to it....maybe after all the trouble shooting we won't have any issues. The other nice thing is I have my battery power fixed...I had gotten a new battery from barreries plus and it didn't work so I took it back and they got me a new one and the new one worked then it stopped I got a HP battery from circuit city and it works no problems....yea know I can work for longer than an hour. School will go so much easier now.

Here it is Thursday and I feel lost. I have been so involved in school I feel like I'm missing something. I even feel that I don't have enough time to study.

Well I figured out what it is ......FUN. I don't get to enjoy spending time with my family. I have so much homework to do and what not it seems so unfair. I am hoping to plan a fun day this weekend or next weekend. If not then maybe in April when we slow down for the end of the semester before the new semester starts.

Lee and I have not had a date in at least a year. I know it may seem lame to some people but I miss just us going out...of course some of our issue is no money. I am thinking of looking up some stuff on the net to see if I can find free stuff to do. Even if we have to take the kids. This summer I hope that we can do lots of outdoors stuff. We will have to work that around work because this summer/next semester the goal is to have a job then.

I feel like I just dump out whats on my mind and don't have anything fun to say either. Sorry if I've bored you.

Okay today was the run of the mill running late and losing sleep...mostly from the time change...But it did turn out good in the end. We got to church on time and even had a few minutes to spare because our bishopric decided to give some people some time to get there. So we had an extra ten minutes of nice organ music.

Today was my first day teaching the Valiant 9. Today was a challenge. I was given help by my awesome presidency. We have one boy who is only at church a few times a year and today was one of them. He has some developmental issues (not sure what and don't want to speculate but I will find out next time he is at church, I hope). Class was awesome other than the one boy that was a handful. I do have a great group of kids.

On another note...we got to go to the temple this past Friday. We did baptisms for the dead. We have lost our full temple recommends for lack of activity and Lee (he is the money maker) not paying our tithes. So with the new year new start motto we hope to have them back by Rachele's birthday in October. We have been blessed to have a temple so close and did not take advantage of it. However, once we get our new recommends we plan on changing that. Our bishop is being awesome at getting us on the right track along with getting in the grove of things along with our effort of course. I am happy to report we have not missed any Sundays since the last Sunday of Jan and the first two weeks of Feb when the kids where very sick. We did miss stake conference with Rachele's foot and Kenny running his 102.0 temp. However we have called every time we needed to miss and explained what was going on. Again our bishop is an awesome guy and very much in tune with the Spirit and knows we are trying and he has gotten many insightful answers on how to handle our life issues. We ahve alot going on with no real income and school and kids being sick and other family issues. I will keep you updated on all of our ongoings as best as Lee will let me divolge(sp) on you.

Happy posting to all!!!

To everyone who is getting snow.....will it ever stop? Lee says this is more like the winters he got when he was a kid growing up in Michigan. He likes it. Thats why I send him out with the kids. I hope it stops soon.

On a happy note if you look in the right spots you could take some beautiful landscape pictures.

Rachele update!!!:)

She did not brake her foot....yeppy!!! The bone doc said she is super her mom. He based that off of a few questions I sent with Lee to ask him and some info on me. We both over extend our legs...meaning we lock our knees and they looked bowed from a side angle. Any who she is fine and thankfully its because of genetics.

Snow day!!

Well as most would know we got lots of snow....So they cancelled classes at the college...yeah!!! So Lee is shoveling and the kids are watching from the house....I should peek out at him. He is good....almost done.

Rachele really wants to go out and play but with her foot she can't. Rachele and Lee go tomorrow to the bone doc to see what is up with her foot. Kenny just wants to eat the snow he really like it.

The dogs love the snow too. Go figure. they played so long that they are now napping. Silly dogs.

The pictures are from our last snow storm before Rachele hurt her foot.

New addition!!!

We have a new addition to the family....he is four months old and is so cute.

We had a road trip to Topeka, IN to get my Dad a new dog. Our golden retriver (sp) has been so lonely since the boxer died in December so Dad felt it was time to get him a new friend. Our three our trip to Indiana turned into a four hour trip making it a total of 8 hours round trip. The kids loved the car ride and really liked the farm that Dad got the dog from they had a little of everything....or at least their neighbors did. Kenny really liked the dogs that were just running loose. Rachele stayed in the van at first but then Lee went and got her.

Rachele was running down the hall on Friday the 29th and stopped to ask my mom something and within 3 seconds was on the floor screaming because something happened to her ankle/foot. The ER doctor thinks she just sprained it but put her in a half cast until she can see the bone guys. She says it doesn't hurt anymore but she wakes up at night saying it does. I hope to get her in sometime this week to see the bone guys to make sure that it is not broke.
