Just another late night

Ugh! Have you ever had to get a posterboard after school for your child only to find out the project is due to next day!

That's what I did tonight!

When I left to house to pick up my 14-year-old from school, I only grabbed my keys, sunglasses, and phone. NO WALLET! I know, Iknow, I should have it with me whenever I drive anywhere. But, I knew I'd be just running over to her school to pick her up and come right home.

NOPE! I hear "Mom, I need a posterboard tonight" So, we found change in the console and I sent her in by herself to Walgreen's.

$.98! That's all! But, it's the principle of the matter. Then, I asked her how long she'd know about the project. "Since last week" oh and It was due yesterday.


"I forgot!" 


So, I was just a little frustrated, to say the least. And, needless to say, she's having a late night with homework.

I thank God everyday that I only have one child! But, God why does she have to be just like me?

Speaking of clippings and snippings

I am still trying to figure out my problem with uploading pictures. Frustrating! I know I'll get it at some point. But, in the meantime I thought I'd write something....

Keith had surgery yesterday. He had a hydrocele that needed to be drained AND opted to add-on a vasectomy. I'll let you google the hydrocele.

It was an outpatient procedure. His recovery time is 6 weeks with one week off of work. I thought that was a long time. Yeah, I thought oh, he'll be in and out but, I'm now realizing this could take a while.

Yesterday, he came home and took a nap which I expected. After his nap he seemed to doing fine. The discharge nurse said to take it easy the first 24 hours. He kept saying he was feeling good. I think the drugs were still talking.

Because he didn't sleep well at all last night!

I set my alarm clock every four hours to give him his pain meds. I do know how important pain management is. He just had a hard time sleeping on his back.

Today has been a little slower to say the least.

My job is to keep the ice packs coming.

I pray that he has a speedy recovery! I'll keep you updated.

Clippings of my life...

I've been feeling like I need to start writing more about my personal life. At times, I feel like my life is crazy and I just need to get it out!

If you follow this blog you'll notice that I changed the name. I went with "Clippings of my life...." I think my new title has a lot of meanings...

  • I cut hair for a living

  • I love to cut coupons

  • I could use some trimming of my weight

  • And, I want to use this blog to scrapbook about my life!

I excited to share a little more with you!

Clippings of my life.

Testing, Testing

I have changed my personal blog to Clippings of my life...

Updates to come
