Monday Again

We are kind of in a rut here. Not much new going on to post about. Things are kind of blah right now.

Sunday was Adam's birthday. Here are a few photos.
Pretty much everything he wanted was Nike. But while he was at training, he acquired so much Nike (that we didn't know about and went off his Christmas list) that he now has doubles of most things, like Lebron Soldiers etc.


Adam is sort of at loose ends because he did reserves planning to go to college. But he didn't do what he needed to in order to go to college. So he's home with not much to do but run around all day and night with friends. That ended today though because we think that adult children who are not in college need to be working. So he went back to work at Church's, but only for a few hours.

Mostly we are going crazy with homework, history fair and such. It's been rainy and gloomy and I think that's been affecting my moods a lot. We need some real sun. I need the beach. Sigh.

We've been to see Frozen three times (some of us). Tyler, Jessica and Jasmine went to the 10:20 p.m. showing of Hobbit and got home at almost 2:00 a.m. on one of the last nights before Christmas vacation ended. Tyler ended up going back to KY a day later than planned because his flight was canceled on the 6th due to cold temperatures in Nashville where all the kids fly into and are then taken the rest of the way by  bus. Different groups of the kids went to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs both at the cheap theater and then free at the bowling alley a week later. So, as you can tell, not a lot of excitement.

One thing that happened though is that we found out the kids have both the 20th and 21st off of school. We still have two days left on our four day Disney passes we got in order to take Adam to celebrate his graduation. So everyone except Jessica (who can't get off of work) is headed to Disney next weekend. I'm hoping we don't have cold rain in Orlando during that time.

Their first adoption! The white one is a boy and the darker one is a girl. They can't come home for a few weeks because they are just newborns.

I'm kind of in blah mood here too. Getting ready to find out what a empty nest is like. :( The puppies are adorable. What are their names? Are you wedding planning yet?

The puppies are not quite pure bred huskies. Hunter has a thing about wolves and volunteers at the perserve. The white one is Polar and the dark one is Snowflake. Wonder what they'll name their kids???

Jessica is looking for a place on the beach for the wedding but they are all inclusive and so expensive.

We are off next monday and tuesday as well, AND my 3 highschoolers only have school some days this week because of end of semester tests. I was hoping to get some time to myself after Christmas break, doesn't look like that's happening anytime soon... picked up a sick one from school today!

Crazy isn't it. I'm ready for Adam to find something productive to do full time. Thankfully Jessica works parts of many days and go to college three days in the morning and one evening. No days off for exams. Middle school takes all the exams.
