Hi there all. Well we have a slight change of plans for going home. We arent going camping after all. Its suppose to rain on Friday May 2nd and then Snow on Saturday May 3rd so I have my mom looking for an empty motel room for us and then if nothing else we will stay with them but only if they cant find a room. Jeff and I like our privacy and we dont get much of that staying with my parents in there one bedroom home. I know and understand they dont need much more room than that. But its still very uncomfortable staying with them There isnt alot of room to move around and esp with us coming and going all day long. When we do stay with them she tends to think she can hog us and doesnt want us to go places and then when we come back she gets mad at me and part of its her damned dog.
She says she will put Scooby in her cage but then half way through the night she will figure Scooby needs to run a bit and Jeff gets mad and then we have a fight. Its not the best arrangements but I suppose.
I lost my first post for today. It was long and good. Jeff and I were talking about this the other night and then I got and e-mail from Courtney with some funny things on it. Well this is about Ridolin. I hope its spelled right. Well most of you should get the idea of what I mean. LOL..
Jeff and I were talking about kids being all hyper and such. I am not going in the direction I was going with the first post ok.. I mean sure Kora is hyper but she is a kid. She needs to run the energy off from being in the house all day long and the cold winter such. Not in a house with being given pills and being a Zombie and such. She doesnt care for TV or video games to be honest with you. She would rather be outside with her bike and running around the house. When they are in the house they prefer to play in there bedrooms which dont have TV's and video games.
I heard on TV the other day. Our local news for that matter that kids that are taking Meds for being ADHD or something in that form need to have an EKG to make sure that they need those meds or else they could die or have heart problems later on in life.
I had used Jonathon as a case I know that isnt sure he really needs meds but he has been on them since he as small. I have heard that they cant do a good testing for a child needing meds for ADHD until they are seven or older anyway. I watch way to much tv sometimes.
But what I do know and Jeff agree's with me totally is the girls may be hyper but I will never put them on pills or meds. They are happy when I go out and give them half an hour of attention or so. All they want is my attention. Sure why not. I can give them half an hour at a time while cleaning. Sweep and mop the kitchen. While waiting for the kitchen and hallway to dry go outside and watch them ride there bikes or just goof around in the front yard.
That is all they ask of me right now. Then they are happy. Kids now adays are being put on so many different meds because parents cant give them the attention they need. I am not saying its not a legitimate cause but some kids do have an electro magnetic disorder where they need the meds but have them tested when its time not before and have a child put on meds before you know for sure. It just gets me royally there are some many children out there that dont need it but just as many that do that arent on it.
Anyway I have some good news for you all but I am not suppose to say anything until we find out for sure but maybe I can give you a glimpse of what we are looking at doing. We found out that we can get a quarter of an acre piece of land with a new house on it for 150,000 dollars. We are going to talk to the mortgage guy tomorrow. He is coming to our house to talk to us. He said that is fine. We are going to go through numbers and see what goes down. But we have a few things we want to do to this house before selling it but we want to know what we need to do before going ahead with the new one. Pretty cool huh??? LOL.. I dont want to get to excited about it but its hard not to really. Life is looking up for us and I hope this goes through. We have a fence to put up, we have a small area in the basement to fix. Some of the flooring near the wall needs to be recaulked. I think that is spelled right also. We have to fix some of the driveway going into the garage. its not even. But then I think we are ready to sell. Well we maybe ready now. But I still have my interview tomorrow for a job. I will have more information tomorrow afternoon to tell you all about. Well enough for now. I made rounds earlier. Talk soon.
UPDATE We have decided not to go home right now. We have the money but we dont want to stay with my folks or family and we wanted to try camping so we are going to wait till august or early September to go home. We have decided to go to my dads house instead and stay at a motel out there for the night and spend next Saturday with him.
Its about me and my family. Mainly me and the girls. I may twitter or tweet alot but its mostly thoughts and going ons here at home and thoughts about what we might be doing on weekend or our adventures. Sit down and Enjoy what you are reading.
