So proud!

LittleMan was behind in reading when he started 1st grade, he didn't know most of his letters or their sounds. When we homeschooled he had begun reading but lost a lot of it over the summer when I let him just work on math, since he loves math! Anyway, we just got his report card, he is officially on grade level now, woohoo! His reading resource teacher works with him daily and he practices at home daily as well. His confidence has grown and he catches himself reading without realizing it, so fun!!

I'm proud of you big guy :)

M is on the left, he is pretending to be missing a finger (I think he needs to work on that trick, hehe), cousin W in the back as Spiderman and LittleMan as a fire fighter.

I am so angry and frustrated and mad and pissed off!! Ok, so they all mean basically the same thing, but since I don't swear I need to repeat myself, lol.

Anyway, my Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is $3,000 here in Utah and my insurance is required to pay that out, they go after the other drivers insurance for reimbursement. If the costs go over that I have to get a lawyer and fight the at fault drivers insurance. Well, I was informed that I've run out of my PIP and now I have to go through my health insurance ($40 copay) or get a lawyer.

The accident was not my fault, but the whole thing has been this huge hassle and now I get to add more to it. I'm just MAD!! gah!


LittleMan is sick, he is 6 years old, too young to stay home alone. But I have school too, is he sick enough he shouldn't go? Well enough he can walk about a mile each way to my class (yes, it's that far literally)? Me staying home isn't ideal either, only a few more weeks of school, finals are coming.

It's time like these that I second guess my decision to go back to school, I'm sure I'll have times like these when I go back to work too. Parenting, isn't it fun?

p.s. yes I love being a mom, just being a bit grouchy this morning, we'll figure out what to do.

Edited: I took him with me, he got winded pretty easily this morning but by this afternoon he is feeling a lot better. Though now he wants to go to school with me again tomorrow, lol. Thanks for the support girls, you are the best!

I am such a dork!

I was taking a quick shower this morning, our water heater runs out of water really quickly, and started running out of hot water. I decided to try and rinse the conditioner out of my hair while I shaved my legs. Well, I only did the back! I forgot to rinse the front, lol. I was rushing out the door to my chiropractor appointment when I realized my mistake.


Yeah, so I went anyway, luckily for me, I didn't put much on the front so it wasn't too noticeable, or is that lucky? ;)
