I can't believe it's almost 2 months since my last post! Either I'm slacking, or I just don't have too much say, or maybe a little of both. This will be a catch up post, I really don't have too many updates. But, to start with, here's some humor. We've been looking at some old pictures and slides and movies at my parent's house, and we came across a few old family favorites.
|I had to wear this on my head after my mom put my pink, foam curlers in my hair.|
|Pretty cute, I know.|
|I love my brother's leather vests. We always joke that they were made out of old couches.|
|I don't know what my mom was thinking. Nice Polygamous dresses on me and Meri, and my brother's collars are so stylish.|
Britt-I don't have any pics of Britt, and not a whole lot of new stuff to talk about either. Nursing school applications start after this trimester. We're hoping and praying that she's accepted to Dixie State's nursing school. She's done everything that she can, so it should happen. Lots of school and night shifts as a CNA is what Britt is up to.
Brock-Football, football, and more football. The Thunder has lost their last 2 games, but will rebound this week against Snow Canyon on Wednesday. Brock has been playing really well and gets emails, texts, facebook messages, and postcards for schools all around the US. But, we'll see what scholarship offers he gets after the season ends. I can't believe it will all be over in about one month. They only have 2 more regular season games, and then it's playoff time.
Abby-Abby has been doing pretty good since we made a few changes in her schedule. For the first month and a half of school Abby got sick.......a lot. Nothing major, just stomach bugs, then sore throats, then coughs, etc. etc. She finally came to me one day and told me that she was sick of feeling crappy and being sick too tired to do anything fun after school and that she wanted to try online school. At first, I was completely against it, school and friends is where the fun is! But, after lots of conversations (and arguments) we decided to compromise and it's been perfect. Abby does her core classes online, and her electives at the school. She only has to go to school every other day for just the afternoon. Abby has loved it! She is very self-motivated, so the online courses work well for her, and she still gets to have the social with her friends at school. Abby said that she has learned more this past month then she learned the past couple of years because she's had to miss so much school. For this year, we're sticking with it and then we'll re-evealuate again next year. This is Abby after her choir concert last week. It's always awesome to see Abby do anything.
Me-I've been good. The hardest thing I'm dealing with is trying to stay on top of medical bills, they're never ending. My insurance deductibles just started over in August too, so I'm right back where I started plus what I didn't pay off last year. I sometimes feel like I will always be in medical debt, in fact, I know I will be. I just got Brock's new MRI bill today and I still haven't paid off his surgery and MRI's from last year! ughhhhh, it's never ending, but I can deal with it. I'm going to be selling my book at the Dicken's Festival down here in St. George in November and hopefully that will help. OTher than that, things are good. School is hard, but fun. I love teaching, it's just what I do. It's been nice to be able just focus on the regular for a while.
I saw this on Facebook today and I like it. If you ever start thinking that I'm crazy or find yourself asking, "What is wrong with Michelle???" just remember this saying. And someday you might find me acting like this again, it's not that far off, some of you have seen it already (I'm the one on the bed in the glasses and bandana, singing Guns and Roses, Sweet Child O' Mine......I remember it so well!)
