I think tomorrow, when I am done with payroll, I will work on a little post to update everyone (not that I think anyone ever reads my blog?)

The view from the front door (living room)
Another view from the front door (living room)
A friend of mine sold me his HD flat screen TV....it is awesome!!
I created this area behind the couch as a computer/school work area since we don't use a table for dinner and such. It is rather nice because T has all his school supplies in one central location, along with his desk for working. It works!!
Just part of the kitchen, I couldn't zoom out enough LOL
The hallway off the kitchen leading to the bathroom and bedrooms
The bathroom, this picture doesn't even begin to tell you just how big this room is
Tayllor's room. He says it's not bigger than what he's had, but I disagree. It is a very nice sized room!!
This is my really big closet, with Tayllor jumping in front of it (yes, he is in mid-air!)
It is on the second floor (which works for us) 2-bedroom, 1 bath in a 4-plex. It has a nice sized living room, a very nice kitchen, very big bedrooms and a HUGE bathroom!! The front door downstairs has a code lock on it so that's a little easier on the mind, specially since we live on 23rd Avenue. Neighbors are quiet, and rather nice actually (although, after having to deal with the constant beatings the guy next door put on his girl at the old place, I will NOT be getting to know any of my neighbors nor will I be friends with any of them). It totally works for T and I. I still have not had time to unpack a few boxes or put anything up on the walls, but as soon as I have a break from life (HA!) I'll start that task. My very thoughtful 12 year old said: "Home is what you make of it, mom. No matter where we live, as long as we are together, it will always be home" - so to us, this apartment is perfect!

He was SO nervous!!
I told him to give me a funny face so he gritted his teeth and smiled LOL

This is Tayllor's summer hockey league picture. I'm not too happy with it for a couple reasons, 1) he needed a hair cut and finally got one the weekend he got back and 2) he now has contacts and looks SO much better!!! Oh well, its an experience, right?? And he's still cute as ever :)

Happy Birthday kid. You make me proud :)

Tayllor graduated from 6th grade last Tuesday May 19th. I am not going to lie, I was pretty teary eyed. I mean, thats my baby, my oldest and my youngest. The laid back times of elementary school are over. He is now on to learning how to please 7 different teachers, changing classes and having a locker. It'll be a fun experience but a scary one at the same time. Let's hope T can keep his head together and pull out better grades that I know he can do :D
Here are a few pics from graduation day:
Tayllor and his papa
Tayllor and his sister Kaybrie
Tayllor and his proud grandmas
Tayllor and his proud grandpa

Outside my window...its cloudy and icky and chilly
I am thinking...waaaaaaaaaay too much to list here
I am wearing...shoes, socks, jeans, t-shirt and my underthingys
I am creating...nothing, I'm at work
I am hoping...for a raise soon
I am hearing...the music playing on my puter
Around the house...is prolly quiet since no one is home
A few plans for the rest of the week: try to catch up on sleep at the same time trying to catch up on shows that have been recorded from MONTHS ago as well as making sure T does his homework and studies for his spelling test! Whew thats a lot!
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
Parking lot is flooded.....
.....water is coming through from behind where the campsites are....
...and its flowing into the river. It was SOOOOO cold!
We crossed the flowing water (freezing our flip flop clad toes off) and took a picture towards the parking lot and the rest of the people looking on in awww
Yes, he is ALL boy. He just HAD to climb up on the rock and scare the hell outta his mama!!
The big rock T dug up so he could throw at the chunk-o-ice, and when I say "dug up", he really did dig it up LOL
Amazing to see the destruction!
Close up, kinda blurry
See that small little piece of concrete just hanging on. Hold on little buddy LOL
We spent about 3 hours or so there and then drove back, stopping along the way to take some pics from my cell. Got some of the extremely high river that was actually running alongside the road (you usually can't see the river unless you turn off or you go over a bridge) as well as some flooded points in the road. There was only one "flooded" sign the whole way down and that was about 4 miles outside of CHS itself, but it was only for a small part along the edge of the road. It was AMAZING to see the way water just creates it's own path.
