I dont know what to say today..

Hi all. I dont know what to say today but I just realized its been a few days. I got my second check today. It feels really nice to have money in my purse and not have to worry about it. I dont spend on things I dont need. But its nice to know its there when I have to run to the store or something.

The girls got a treat for being good today. They each got a Happy Meal from McDonalds and then free Ice Cream Sunday's with Fudge on top. Then we went and cashed my check and got a money order for our mortgage. I just mailed that out. We have till the 15th of each month to mail it out.

Jeff and I are looking at getting together with some of the home school parents in a couple of weeks before we get back to the grind. We are planning on home schooling both girls even with me working. We are going to go to the used book sale on August 14th and see what we can get. One of the ladies has some free books for me if I want them. Or some of them.

We have been working with Kora on her math and Bri on her alphabet. She loves to learn how to make new letters and numbers. She can sing her whole ABC song and count to 20 for her age. But by time she is five they like to have them counting to 100 for some dang reason. I will have to work on it with her.

But they both have there strengths and they are both amazing really. Our YMCA is offering a gym class for homeschooled children and Jeff and I are thinking about getting Kora involved in it. We have to find out how much first. But that is our thoughts.

Lots of stuff going on but nothing important really. Been having fun at work but you have heard enough of that. I have been hit on by people coming through the drive thru at night but have told them no thanks I am married. The manager stood there one night listening to me to make sure I could stand on my own against this drunk that grabbed my hand but I told him no thanks and to go to the next window and get his food and leave. The manager said he couldnt have done better.

I got two new shirts for work today. Now all I have to work on is getting two more pairs of pants. I hate wearing the same ones every day. And washing them every other.. But otherwise things are going good.

Jeff is so proud of his family. I mean we are actually putting money in the bank. Yayyyy. Then my MIL keeps sending us fifty dollar checks for the computer we bought them when we were out there last. We told her not to worry about it. But she insists on paying us back. Jeff found it at a thrift shop for a couple hundred dollars and he decided to pick it up for them.

I suppose. I have one more load of laundry to dry and then I am taking a nap. I have been up since 10:30 and couldnt sleep so I am off to go do that and then nap with the girls for a bit. I am back at work at 8 PM tonight till 2 AM and then tomorrow and Saturday from 8 PM to 4 AM... Busy life but hey.

Gardenia an answer to your question where do I find time to crochet?? Sitting outside with the girls under a tree or while watching tv in the evenings, on my days off but I can do almost a whole blanket on a day off if I have enough quiet time. LOL.. I still do things on days I have to work.. I know always busy. I am one of those people that have a hard time sitting around doing nothing.

Anyway I suppose. Talk to you all later. I will make rounds later or when I come home at about 2 AM when I am using my computer time to wear down a bit. I know it sounds funny to visit you all then but sometimes its the best. I dont have anyone asking me for something at that time and I have time to read..

2:00AM on the computer? You've had to turn into a night owl! Well... as long as you're getting enough sleep I'm sure it will be fine. I have worked the night shift and it really wears me down because I have difficulty sleeping in the daytime.

I'm so very glad you don't have to send the girls to a public school! :)

Hammer said...

Those paychecks are a good feeling.

There are some good homeschooling activities on and

It's sure nice to have some change to jingle!

About your girls math; I found out something when I was young that you might find hard to believe. When a youngster is trying to learn numbers, it's sometimes easier to start on 2's and 11's. You know, 2-4-6-8-10=12-14-16-etc---11s are the easiest. 11-22--33--44--55--66--77 and on and on. It's much easier than you think. Good luck! Jim

Jeannie said...

You sound much more content. I'm so glad it's all working out.

The Griper said...

can't you pay your mortgage online? it is a lot easier and cheaper too. i pay all my bills online now. it allows me to take trips without worrying about the bills because i can pay them from any computer.

tweetey30 said...

Gayle I actually didnt get home till almost 4 AM this morning.. So I made rounds then.

Hammer thanks for the recipe and the homeschooling tips.

CA thanks I will try that one with her.

Jeannie we arent struggling as bad anymore. Its easier on us now.

Griper we dont have enough on our credit cards and another thing is we dont have a checking card to pay our bills on line.

Kitem said...

I am glad you all feel better now you get some extra money thank to your night job.
You are very courageous to work at night, and still homeschooling the girls, you really deserve the best in life.

tweetey30 said...

Kitem its better than sending her back to those public schools. She told me she would rather be home schooled about a month ago or so.

Bridget Jones said...

Busy little bee you are, Tweety, but it looks like all of you are having fun. Very happy for you and your family. Sending lots of hugs.

The Griper said...

tweety, you do not need credit cards or checking cards to pay bills online.

The Zombieslayer said...

I hope the money is enough. We were really hurting before Mrs. Z started working. Now we're doing ok. It's a huge difference having 2 sets of paychecks coming in each month.

Hope you're getting your sleep though. Seems like you have a full plate.

Candy Minx said...

Wow! I have so much catching up to do, it's been three weeks!

I am so plesased you are organizing and enjoying your new job and enjoying the feeling of making some money. It's great to hear Jeff is feeling better about money too and things.

I think that is great to home school around your job as well. I know you are busy but it's also all positive busy not negative stuff.

Let me catch up and read a few posts back and see pics...


tshsmom said...

Yay on the new work shirts! That usually means that they're going to keep you!
It's a PAIN not having enough work clothes to make it through the week without washing them!

tweetey30 said...

Candy It has been a while. I have been tired but been posting every couple of days. It seems with me working I have little to talk about but work.. LOL... Silly things that happen.

Mom yes it does seem they are keeping me.I am learning how to deal with the drunks on the headsets. They are being patient.

That girl said...

How good for you that you have extra money! I bet things with Jeff and you have been a lot more relaxed now, because of it.

You'll have to explain your work/sleep schedule to me at some point because I don't know how you have time/or can be awake for homeschooling in the morning...arent you barely getting home and going to sleep?

Kitem said...

You've got 2 awards at my place.

Ortho said...

Tweetey, I think you're brilliant. I nominated you for an award.

tweetey30 said...

That Girl I e-mailed you after I read your comment early this morning. LOL.. Its difficult sometimes but worth every pain there is.

Ortho and Kitem thanks. I will get to them soon I promise.

Candy Minx said...

Hang in there...maybe days off you can catch up on blogging. Also, after a while you might get more acclimatized to your new schedule. Busy girl you!
