The Good, The Bad, The New

I usually try to keep things light(er) and fun around here, and I still want to do that, but I want to say, if I'm not around for a few days, it's just because things at my house are a little crazy. Here's a quick rundown (and then I'll get to the good stuff). Stubborn, independant, a teeny bit selfish teenage girl. super sensitive,emotional, started her "monthly" too early, pre teen. Middle aged, doesn't always know how to deal with girls dad. Super organized, and a little high maintance mom. Sufice it to say, we've got some stress. Add in that Lyric is getting ready for high school and thinks she knows everything. Jazz is the baby, and always will be. I'm trying to figure out how to pay for school, and keep working to hold onto health insurance and tuition reimbursement. And Fisher is just overwhelmed with the whole thing. Anyway, if you could just send a prayer or two up for us, I would appreciate it. I'm sure things will even out, but I don't know when. we've got a couple of things in the works to help us all get on the same page.

Good news- Fisher won some money in a school fundraiser/raffle this weekend. It's enough to pay for my part of the New York Trip, plus Lyric's last payment, plus our spending money for the trip. We were super excited about that! BONUS!

Bad news- We're not going to be able to see Rick while we are in NYC. The concert is actually (from what I can find) the night that we are heading back. (Remember the driving through the night story??)

New- see begininng of post. The girls are also going to be responsible for more help around the house. They aren't really happy, but it's a necessity with school coming for me. And it's a good thing for them to learn. Not only will they have specific chores, they will have a timeline and consequences- all mapped out. So, everybody will be on the same page, etc.

I'm looking forward to some positive changes around our house, for everybody's mental health. Again, pray for us!

Oh, and one more thing. I signed up today to be a product tester. it's a specific item, but I don't want to say what yet, because if I get picked, I want to SURPRISE you with my fantastic review. I hope I get picked, I hope I get picked. "P" people, if you are reading this- I'm so in!
