They've actually canceled school for tomorrow. I have to go out anyway because Jasmine has an orthodontist appointment. But once home I plan to do nothing. Anyone who can cooperate can just watch Disney movies all day!! Update: all appts canceled, and one child brought home a terrible report of how she was mean, rude and inappropriate to others today so one will be in her room.
Adam moved into an apartment with a friend at the beginning of the week. (The above picture is only what he took at the time. He has lots more still here.) Our adult children are welcome to stay as long as they are in college or working toward some other goal. But Adam has decided to just work full time at Church's Chicken for now and do Marine reserves. I told him he needed a plan in place by next fall--such as going to college or doing active reserve or something. But he went ahead and moved in with a friend now rather than wait until fall, and that is probably a good thing for him. He likes to run around half the night, so he will be able to do that without having to be accountable to us. He is a very social person.
I think he will do well, but I hope he plans to do more with his life than just work at Church's Chicken. I know he wants to, but he needs to start taking the steps to make it happen. He hasn't yet done what he needs to in order to start college in the fall or to get his drivers license. I set everything up for his permit when he was 16, and he took the drug course, but never actually took the written test for the permit. The drug certification expired after 18 months.
I took Rick to Outback for dinner one night. We haven't really made going out a priority, but we are working on that. I think we need the time for just the two of us. We are still planning on a few days away in March. The Dr thought he had a hernia that was going to need surgery, but it's stomach issue instead and will be treated with meds.
|The twins have been home four years now. They came home January 25, 2010.|
|So we took a little time out from homework to play and celebrate.|
So, that's it from here. How are you all dealing with the weather? Snow days?
