When You're So Use To...

trying to be funny all the time it's hard figuring out how to post in a whole different way. I can still be funny but now I can be serious and not feel bad about it. It's a little odd for me. Of course, right after I posted "coming out" about cancer on this blog I get sick and don't have a chance to post again for awhile. *snort*

Things have been pretty busy around here over the past week. We're getting ready to start our new homeschool year which means I'm trying to figure out "curriculum" for a high schooler, middle schooler, and a kindergartner. Wheeeee fun! *eyeroll* So far it's not going so well because I can't get Big B to help me figure out what he needs for his final year and Sis doesn't want to do anything at all. Only MonkeyBoy is ready to go and can't wait to start his schoolwork. We have until Monday to get our shit together so we can get started so wish me luck.

One thing that IS going right around here is the work on our backyard. It has gone from a 46x50' square of nothing but sand, ants, and thorns to a pretty yard with a shed, flowers, trees, gravel borders, grass, and a flagstone patio (thank you Craigslist!!!). Hubby has been laughing his ass off at me lately because the roses he bought and planted are blooming like crazy while the container vegetables I planted have not produced a single solitary veggie or fruit. Damn plants!

Once the yard is completely finished I will share pictures of it's awesome loveliness. Okay so I also want to make people drool over how kick ass my backyard looks without having spent a fortune on it. *snicker*

As far as health goes, I'm waiting on a referral to a cancer specialist in St. Louis and once I have that then hopefully I won't have to wait too long for an appointment. On one hand I'm not looking forward to being away from the kids (surprising I know, I must to be fucked in the head!) but on the other hand it will be nice to see my friends who live in St Louis. I haven't actually hung out with a bunch of other women in so long I hope I still remember how.

Geez, when did I become so pathetically uncool? lol

There you are! I was going to give you a shout today since it has been so long since I've heard from you or seen you on the boards. You must show pics of your backyard! It sounds heavenly and like a great place to get out and enjoy the outdoors without getting covered in sand,dirt and ants.

Anyway - you've been on my mind a bunch lately and I am happy to hear from you. Hope you get to St. Louis soon and that it brings good things to you.

love ya!

The yard sounds gorgeous!

Do we home schoolers have to get our shit together? I thought we just improvised on a day to day basis. *LOL!!*

Yeah you posted! hehehehehehe...

Good news about the yard. I'm so glad the landscaping finally managed to happen before the end of the summer.

Someday I'm going to get over there and see it right?

Of course x-files is gone from the theater. How about The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor? I might even be able to go tonight...

It's good to see that you are posting again after you came out about your illness at the end of July. I think the only thing you should do is go with the flow and with your feelings. If you aren't feeling funny, then don't try to be funny...your readers will totally understand and will appreciate your honesty.

I hope you get appointment with the doctor in St. Louis soon. I know how hard it is waiting for those appointments to come through.

Oh I can't wait to see pictures of the backyard. if it's any consolation, my garden didn't do anything either. It's a conspiracy!

When can you come and dress up my yard?

Good to see you posting and I've been counting the days until you make it to St. Louis!

Hang in there.

I think you are really brave for trying to home school a highschooler and middleschooler. Seriously, that has to be a challenge!

I just found your blog, and I will be back soon! So, please write more!
