Little bit of this and that....

Well, it is that time again....the last day of school ...in our house....although I am just talking about regular school....Maya will be going to her community college course all summer. Today is Ben's last day of high school....now that only leaves Megan...the last of the nine, to be at high school....after fourteen years of having kids at this particular high school, I'm finally down to one...Megan will attend for another four years...when you are delayed you are allowed to stay in school til you're 21 years old. Next week I'll have to post some pics of Ben's grad, which is scheduled for next Thursday evening. Ben had some very good news last week...he's been doing a co-op job two afternoons a week at a local drug store...now they have offered him a job! Just three afternoons a week...but it's a job and he got it all by himself...no worker helping him or anything! For a delayed kid, that is huge! We are very proud of him...

...another son had some accomplishments this week also....Paul, our army guy, decided to spice things up a bit and volunteered to take a three week paratroopers' course...last week he stopped in and his shoulders were covered in huge bruises from jumping out of high towers...this week he jumped out of a plane...five times!....and he passed....so, now ,as well as being qualified in infantry and artillery, he's also a paratrooper!

Tomorrow, hubby and I are suppose to return to our trailer, up north, and put the trim and quarter round down, put together the table and chairs and all round just get everything ready for the following weekend when we have our scheduled two week holiday up there. I will be glad when it's all done and we can finally relax...hubby needs the break!

Today is hubby's alternate Friday off...yes, his boss decided they could have them back..for a while...til she decides to rescind it again....so, this morning we have to take the dogs to the vet for their check ups and needles....such a joy, Reilly, the male, gets so anxious that he usually tries to bite the vet...where is the dog whisperer when you need him?....then I have a massage booked...then we have to go into the city and get my passport renewed....then...I have to pick up Megan at school and take her for a needle at the doctor's office....then.....we finally get to come home and relax...wait...we have to gather up everything for the trailer so it's all ready to go in the morning....then we can relax....so much for a day off!

Next week will be a week of change....Ben will be learning all about getting to and from his job, on the bus.....he's used to the bus, with his class, but he's never gone from our house, on his own....something new...Megan will be home, driving me nuts about packing EVERYTHING to go to the trailer...she usually wants to bring her whole room....it's only a little trailer , so she's limited....she doesn't seem to get that though....Maya will continue on with school and work...although I have to meet her at the police station on Monday to walk her thru the process of getting her police check done...( required by the school for working in the long term care facilities), and take her to the doctor's the next day to get , yet another form filled out.......,one day I'll have the grandgirls so that their mom can attend a school trip with their brother, my grandson....quilting class will cease for the summer....Ben's grad on Thursday evening, packing for our holiday, taking the dogs to the kennel for our long wknd, next wknd.....and, probably throwing in some house cleaning to leave the house decent to come home to....although Ben and Maya will be here while we're away.....and ya, so far...I think that's about it....at least I hope it is....it would be nice if the drama ceased for the summer...well, at least for next week anyways...

Have a wonderful weekend ladies!

I'm tired just reading all of that! I hope the time up at the trailer (once the work is done) is relaxing and fun, just the get away you need to recharge.

Have a blessed week!
