Time for an update.....and wow....some big changes! The first would have to be Christopher! He has found a job he likes, working outside (who knew!) doing irrigation work! He has been doing it for about a month, and so far really seems to like it. The best part is the change in attitude. I think because he is getting some physical exercise, has a job and so his own money and independence....his attitude has gotten awesome! We hang out a little, going to the pool or playing yahtzee which is really nice. I enjoy the time we have together. Fingers crossed that this is for good!!!! Second: Jamie! She has moved back home and is through with the nasty roomates, thank God! It isnt as bad as she thought it was going to be so she is adjusting. It is up and down with her right now. She has a new boyfriend which is nice for her and she is doing some housesitting for the summer. She will go to St Louis for a little bit and then school starts back in August and her babysitting job will start back when school does. So, alot going on for her...fingers crossed here too! Brian: has had his first girlfriend and first heartbreak! He is hanging out with his friends alot these days, tons of baseball and even went to the pool last week. He continues to be rude and fingers crossed for that too change plz!!! Brittany: doing well, still swimming for now but is thinking of not swimming for Nova next year. She is tired of the early mornings and doesnt want to swim in college, so not sure she needs to be practicing as much as she does. She is running around a bit too much for me lately, so fingers crossed that we can settle her down a bit.
Me: the same basically...started the C25K and am struggling with that but really want to do it, so cross those fingers for me too!
That's enough for now....fingers are tired! LOL

Drama, drama and more drama.....

I am so very sick of DRAMA! I have had plenty of it too! Let's start with Jamie. Roommate issues...they have been horrible, to the point of Jamie is probably going to move back home for the last few months of the lease. Samantha was a hateful, nasty bitch in high school and hasnt changed a bit..yes, I told Jamie that BEFORE she moved it...but, they know everything. "Mom, she has changed..." and of course, she is the same nasty bitch she always was. But, other than that, Jamie is doing great. She is doing well in her classes, there is no shortage of boys and she has a great little part-time job babysitting for a teacher's kids after school. And of course, Ralphie is the love of her life. Christopher: more of the same. Is finally getting a divorce from Amanda, but not without one last round of her which included her stealing about $3500 worth of my jewelry. Which I did get back, but only thanks to the Henrico Police Dept and Officer Thomas Berry. She is addicted to drugs, heroin and injects it. It is actually very sad and I am afraid for her. But, it has made this last week difficult with Chris. I didnt press charges, for his sake, and now that he and she are not together, he wants me too. He has turned quite mean and sent some ugly texts and phone messages to me. His lack of restraint is amazing. I have truly never met someone who can be so mean. It is just wrong. And that's where it is with him right now. Brian: is playing alot of baseball and made Godwin's JV team. At home, he continues to be rude and nasty. Apparently, he knows EVERYTHING and Jimmy and I are stupid and basically just exist to bother him. Grades arent great...he is passing everything, but at this rate will be lucky to get into a Junior College. Brittany: still swimming, but now at 4:30am which is no fun for any of us. She is still adjusting and we will see how it goes. She is doing pretty well in school and studies and works extremely hard. Couldnt ask much more from her. She too however is suffering from teenager attitude. And although she is not as mean as Brian, she has her moments.
So...for me, I would like a normal, boring life for awhile....sighhhhhhhhhh

Well, what an interesting night around here! I babysat for my grandpuppy, Ralph, the min-pin. He is a puppy, so he is full of energy! And Dizzy is not a puppy and is in NO way amused, nor does Dizzy want to be friends. Instead, he prefers to growl and attack him. To which Ralph doesnt understand, cuz he wants to be friends sooooo bad! Poor Ralphie! So, I spent my evening trying to keep them apart, which was not easy. Jimmy was not in the mood for it and was less than pleasant...Happy New Year's Eve to me...NOT!
But, eventually, Jimmy took Dizzy and went to bed and me and Ralphie just hung out downstairs. Then we went to bed, in Brittany's room and he wasnt too bad. He slept most of the night with a little bit of whining. I did hear some fireworks at midnight and looked out the window in time to see a beautiful white fireworks display at the Alexander's house. It was really pretty!
So, this morning, the fun has begun. Ralph continues to try to play with Dizzy and Jack (the cat) and neither are interested in the least. Hopefully, things will settle down a little. Samantha will be picking him up today...thank you Lord. LOVE my Ralphie, but it is hectic around here with him. He is a sweetie too, I feel so bad for him!
Other plans for today include cleaning, laundry and the grocery store. Never a dull moment in my life!
