School text books are CRAZY. When Lupan was in college his years worth of books, some new, most used cost us almost $1,000. Yep, it's crazy!

I'm glad to hear that, UM!!

I'm just sick. A 12 yr old girl was abducted from a nearby community and they found her body today. A friend had seen her get in a man's truck and they found the guy within an hr of the call. I had hope that maybe she was hidden, alive, somewhere. It happened so fast. I'm sick and I'm terrified.

Thats awful! I hate hearing about kids being hurt/killed. Makes me sad, I can't stand to think about how scared and alone they must have felt. Laws aren't hard enough on people who commit crimes against children!

So, I can't believe how easy breezy pregnancy and afterwards at (almost) 40 has been. I am only 2lbs away from pre-pregnancy weight and I haven't had any bleeding in 3 days. I feel great, my sciatica is just about gone. I told my mom it was so easy this time around I think I'll do it 5 more times. She just stared at me. LOL

I have a internet friend on another site who's husband is an EMT and was involved in that search. Such a sad story and so heartbreaking

Nothing new here. Layla is healing up, but clearly putting off a smell for the boys still, but at least Spy isn't trying to rip the house apart to get to her. We do have to keep them apart though.

We start K-12 on Monday, I don't wanna, I like our lazy days. I wonder if I could be amazing at unschooling lol

You would be great unschooling!

I took #1 to Pensacola to look at uwf yesterday. I think she liked it. The admissions lady was very encouraging.

Bees are bad here too, Becca got stung in the eye brow, and Jayde stepped on one. They weren't so bad last year, I think because it was hot and dry.

Still have our truck about a week til I can pay it lol

Tonight is our last night taking the kids out individually for ice cream. Unless we take Weston, but I don't think he needs ice cream lol I'm actually tired from walking each night, but it's good for Rob and me too.

LOL FW, if I didn't want educated kids I know I would be amazing hahahaha

Repti, i bet the kids are enjoying their time with you. As for walking, it is good for you. Because we have to keep the dogs apart and Layla in the house I have been walking the dogs, each dog get's about a mile (up and down our road) and I've been doing this up to 5 times a day. Not seeing any benefits but hey I'm walking.

The hubby came home with 4 gallons of milk, a gallon of whipping cream, 7 things of sour cream and a large container of cottage cheese. I am in heaven! He thought I'd get mad about all of the sour cream, but he doesn't realize just how much this family uses it. I make all of our dips and dressings, lot's of sour cream. I'll be nice and give some to the older kids.

I want all those dairy products.

Repti, I like the walking ice cream idea. Thats the only thing around here we don't have in walking distance. Now we could have liquor store walking night. Yeah. Not quite as nice an idea.

I think dh is going through with the vasectomy thing. I told him just make up his mind, I didn't want to talk about it anymore. I'm going to be sad if he does it. He has 10 minutes to cancel, otherwise it is a go.

I'd be in heaven too, M2M!!

I'm sorry, UM. Maybe he'll have a panic attack like I did before my tubal.

I'm lazy today and I really need to be anything BUT lazy today, ugh!

A trip to the liquor store would be fun for me!

Sounds like you had some great news and not so great news recently huh UM? I hate weeks like that. You don't know how to feel.

I seriously love where we live. I'd like to move south-er because I think people in the south are more friendly, but who can pass up a walk by this, 5 minutes from your house? AND no bad weather associated with it. No tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes tsunami nothing.

I can't find a good overall aerial view.

The dh decided not to do it, but now he wants to use condoms.

That is pretty, Repti.

Condoms aren't the end of the world. I guess it's a good compromise.

Repti that is beautiful!

We've got some storms moving through. I'm okay with thunder and lightning, but the winds have to stay away, and for our forest sake the lightning really should too. We have some massive fires already going on, I don't think my allergies can handle much more.

Yeah, he will get over that real quick. As long as its up to him.

So #1 wrote to her biology teacher to ask if there was any way she could use the same book she used for zoology, which is the same book she needs for biology, instead of buying it new again (which we didn't actually do). The prof said sure no problem. Why, then would she list it as new required? She didn't know it was. Who is picking the book? I am back to w t f, but glad we don't have to buy a new book.

UM, I'd just go with the flow on what he wants for a while. It sounds like things are going your way.

I'd love that Repti. So pretty!

Glad your book troubles are resolved, FW!

Cole did good tonight in football! One of the kids that plays on the team ticked him off on the bus ('called him a 'rapist' because he wears black socks' w t f!) so he took his anger out on him and an any others that got in his way. It was so nice to hear the coaches praise him for a change!

Glad the hubby decided not to go through with it, UM. Mine's been talking about it ever since I was pregnant with the 3rd. We see where that has gotten us.

Then the other night he told me that I didn't give him as much grief when I was barefoot and pregnant. I told him that can be arranged....

Repti, that is gorgeous!! Maybe we need to look for homes for sale in your area...LOL
FW, I'd say w t f too!!
Terre, good luck with your packing and move! hope that goes smoothly.
m2m hope your allergies aren't too bad. I don't like storms at all.
Cortney, I'm glad your kid took his anger out on the field!
number5, and your husbands reaction to that was? lol

VERY long private post, and I hope no one thinks less of us, because we found it hilarious....
