We have this nice Fairly new flat screen for our computer. We haven't had any trouble with it....until right before we moved. The menu to adjust color, contrast and so on, started to pop up automaticly. Which has become very annoying. No matter what we do it still pops up. I'm ready to throw the darn thing across the room. It pops up at the most annoying times like trying to look up something or type a blog post. I was just sitting at the computer to look up some halloween craft ideas and the darn thing keeps popping up. Even now it is just sitting on the screen. I hit the exit button and within seconds its back. Has anyone else experianced something like this? I thought with the move the unplugging it might "reset" it but no luck. I have a few other frustrations but I'll cool down before I give any details plus they involve someone very close to me and I'd hate to make this person mad at me for telling their business on the web. So I have to come up with the proper wording so I don't offend this person. So I will let you all know about that in a few days or so.

Okay so I still don't have any pictures of Rachele in her uniform. She is loving school but hating mornings. She is just like matter how early she gets to bed morning comes to fast. Her teacher seems to like her and enjoys teaching so I'm excited for that. Once Rachele gets to school she loves being there but getting her to school is a pain...I said it once already but she is just like me.

Lee has finally been to all of his classes. He is very unsure of his schedule. I told him he will be fine like every other semester but he will still stress until the end gets here. He goes to school Monday thru Thursday. He does like the time away even if he is stressing out.

Kenny is loving daycare. He goes Monday thru Thursday for six hours a day. I love it because I can sleep with out having to worry if I'm getting enough sleep or what he is getting into while I sleep. The lady that watches him is a mother of four and she really enjoys having him come over. She even thinks he might be ready to potty train....yikes! He has been waking up dry and going on the potty first thing in the morning so she might be right. But I don't want my baby to be ready for that....he's not even two yet.

I have been offered and accepted a full time position at the hospital I have been working at for the past six months. Which means we can finally get off state aide. YEA!! Not that it's bad to get help when you need it but it's nice to do for yourself. School has finally paid off for me. Since going to nights I do seem to sleep all the time. Any quite moment is sleep time for me. Although I did manage to pull myself out of bed at a decent time today...only working four hours last night helped.

We have the house pretty much set the way we want it. However when we got that bad rain storm the basement flooded and the rental people have yet to do anything about it. But for now everything is good. We moved all the items of wood to higher ground in the have to love older houses. One of these days I'll take some pictures and give you all a tour. The nice thing is we don't have a TV in the living room and the kids TV is in the toy room. We did this for our sanity. We have a quite zone in the house ...YEA!!

1:30 in the morning!!!

Here it is 1:30 in the morning and I'm blogging. What is wrong with me? I just needed something to do to stay awake a work. I have made the switch to midnights....loads of fun. I actually like it. Of course it is a little hard to sleep in the daytime but I'll get the hang of it soon I'm sure. I hope everyone else is sleeping.

When I left the house to go to work both kids were asleep and Lee was about to fall asleep also. He did get up to help move the cars around so I could drive my van and not my dads. We are borrowing my dads van because Lee's truck is in the shop...needs a new transmission. OUCH!! But all is well. I only have six more hours to go until I can head home and go to sleep.

Rachele's first week of school!!!

Okay call me a bad mom...I have no pictures. Let me just say she does look so cute in her white polo and navy bottoms, whether it be capri's, skirt, or her jumper. Next week I'll try to get a photo of the before school look because after school her white polo is no longer white. So glad walmart carries the stain resistant shirts. Anyways she is loving it. I was shocked that the first day was a full day, even more so when all the other schools had half days. But it made it nice not to have to fight with the high school by her school. Hope all is well.
