Here I am

It has certainly been crazy here. As always, just when I think things have calmed down.... they don't! Everyone in this house is pretty stressed out right now.

I don't know what Danny is going to do. He has spent almost 2 full months getting his CDL license, he has passed all the written and driving tests for the busdriver license. He has even gotten a job as a driver. This was his first week on the job and it is a tough week to start something like this. This is a big testing week so the bus schedules are all crazy and he is not the only confused. The people that have been doing this for year are even crazed at this point and can't wait for today to come to an end. At any rate, he is having a nervous breakdown and he's only done this for 4 days. This morning he didn't even get up and then finally called in. I really hope he gets out of this little state. He really needed to do this for himself. My friend who has been a busdriver for over 30 years said Danny is not the only person freaking out this week. She completely lost it yesterday also. Anyway, I'm keeping my fingers crossed and praying that he can get through this.

As for me.... I started my classes this week. Now I knew that there was going to be a ton of typing, but I have to say that I didn't think I was going to have to type for 3 hours straight! My arm was killing me around the 2nd hour. I can't wait to test out of this portion of the class. My WPM were very good in all the lessons that I did. I guess my average for the 14 lessons was around 65 WPM. Not to shabby. I am looking forward to see what is instore for me next week. I am still doing my 365 photo challenge. It's been difficult to keep up, but I am managing. I did miss a day or two I think, but I will make it up. Here is yesterdays photo, I cut off 12 inches of my hair! Donated it to Lock's of Love. This is a whole new look for me. I hope it will look good when I just was and go and it's back to it's curly self tomorrow. It better since 360 days out of the year it is curly. The girl that does my hair just loves to blow it straight, because I never, never do it straight.
Here is the photo right after I cut it off.
Joseph is still being HOME Schooled! We went to a meeting last week and well.... I was denied and completely overlooked again when it comes to Joseph. The board decided to continue HOME schooling him for the REST of the YEAR! Needless to say, I was pretty pissed off! Boy did they play right into Joseph's hand again. He is so happy and who wouldn't be.... he has one teacher that comes on Monday for 1 hour, another that comes on Wednesday for 2 hours and the third comes on Thursday for 2 hours. Oh yeah did I mention they don't even come here until after actual school hours usually around 2:45pm. So you know what that means.... he can sleep in everyday. I've been trying to get him up by 9am everyday, but somedays it just doesn't happen.

DJ is still looking for a job. He decided not to go to school this semester and will be returning in the fall. Not sure which college he wants to attend at this time and he is sending in his applications to 3 so we will see.
I'm off to check out some blog's that of course I haven't been checking into lately due to my crazyness. I hope everyone has a FABOLUS Friday and WONDERFUL Weekend.
