How safe is your child's school

apparently my kids school is not a safe one. today Noah had to sit by the principals' office on a bench during an assembly and no body was watching him. you know Noah nobody watches him and well he is off. He had wandered outside and sat on the benches outside. Thank goodness a parent found him out side and brought him back in and asked if he went to that school. I am so glad nobody took him or he started walking home himself.
There is also a lunch aide other parents have filed a police report on. This aide has left bruises on a kid, kicked another but still works at the school.
I am seriously thinking of pulling them out of that school and putting them into another.
I am hoping to get them into the school that a few ladies from church send their kids so please tell me the name of the school and what you like about it . I am hoping to get them in for next year.

How Firm a Foundation

I have been watching You Tube lately . I like listening to As Sisters in Zion / We'll Bring The World His Truth and it is such a beautiful song. I decided to read the comments they were good. I decided to watch some more songs and I can not believe some of negativity that is on there. Some were from a missionary who left his mission after 6 months . I got to the point after reading them do I believe what I am being taught . There was even one that said so things we did in the Temple that was totally wrong.
I am so glad I have that FIRM FOUNDATION in my life. WE all need that to stand up when we are being brought down by our every day surroundings. I am glad I know the church is true .

Happy Birthday to me

Today is my birthday . 29 years old. I have gone through alot in my lifetime But if you ask me if I could go back in time and change anything I would say I wouldn't change anything. My trials are on;y making me a stronger person .
So today I am going to watch twilight I got it for my birthday after I am done deconstructing my basement. I am loving the hardwood floors I have and I am enjoying these homeimprovment projects.

I am sick of my carpet and I knew there was Hardwood floors underneath . So yesterday after a bad day I went to work I moved the furniture out of the dining room got a steak knife and cut, pulled and took out the tack strip. I did all the dining room. Scott was upset that I did it myself because I don't ask for help and I moved the heavy furniture myself. So I will be sore the next few days I still have the living room to do. Thank goodness he is on vacation to help.
I like the looks of the floor underneath I don't know why carpet was laid done.
I can't wait until it is all done. The was a layer of sand under the carpet and my allergies won't be bad this year since the carpet won't trap the dirt dust and pollen. Plus it was starting to rot underneath from the various spills of juice and stuff.
I found out I like deconstructing . I should join a demolition team.

A fun tag I found

Found this on a new blog I discovered

Restrictions and Limitations:

1. I make guarantees that you will like what I make! (you know i am real creative )
2. What I create will be just for you. (and I will match your personality if I know you )
3. It will be done this year.( I promise you that yo will get it by July )
4. You have no clue what it's going to be, because I don't even know what it's going to be! ( I don't know yet either I have no ideas until I see the names of the 3)
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. ( I don't do strange just unique )

Girls night

I was fun just a few people. One sister even brought a cake lite candles and sung me Happy Birthday even though it was a few days early. We sat around and talked and the topic was bad neighbor hoods we have been to and our dream houses. The kids want one with an elevator. My dream house would be one with a few more rooms let say 6-7 so I can have a guest room and a nursery so if I have another baby in the future it would have its own room for awhile. Lorraine slept in a bassinet in our kitchen for the first few months then shared a room with my sis in law who lived with us to help me out I was having a difficult pregnancy with Noah she wanted out of her house then came Noah they always shared a room when I had Nicholas he slept in our room.
We move here and she got her own room she is not liking it so she wants a sister to share it with.
I would also want a room for a guest room so when family visits they wouldn't have to sleep in the living room or cold tiled basement floor on air mattresses . I would also like a big kitchen with counter space I love to cook but i have no room to do it. A nice size bathroom with a garden tub big enough I could sink right into and wash the stress away. A nice size yard to have a big garden and a tree with a bench under it to read. But most of all a house full of love and no contention .
that is my dream house. i may never get it. I am hoping Scott can get a better paying job I can buy a few acres and build my own house on.

Why do I keep this blog

It seemed like a fun thing to do at first. Let everybody have a glimpse of my life. Just a glimpse nobody really knows what goes on behind closed doors. It has been a way for me to keep in contact with my friends who have moved. A chance for me to get much needed advice and laughs.
I think I will let you in a little further into my life. It has not been going so great lately. I am living with severe depression so right now every little thing sets me off. Noah has been getting in trouble more and more at school it is to the point I am yanking him out and not sending him back . Rainey thinks she is the little mother and can yell at her brothers and be mean to them. She thinks she can have her own way no matter what. She is in for an attitude adjustment . Nicholas has started to yell and scream at the top of his lungs when I tell him no the other day he got mad at me and pulled out a clump of my hair. Where does it end. I am at my wits end I can 't sleep I barley eat I don't care how I look. I haven't really cleaned my house In 2 weeks since I have been sick . The last day I cleaned it was a few hours before I got sick I ask my kids and husband to help and they pick up a few things and that is it. But Scott will clean out the cat box and sweep up the mess baxter throws out of it.
The only good thing that happened today was I was making a treat to bring to a girls night out and nicholas was helping and he got a little taste he liked it so much he brought me the bowl with his other hand dipped in it then liked his little fingers
I am not saying which one. Just know it was kid approved

Kiss me Im Irish

I really am . While doing family history I found a great great uncle many times over served in the Irish Parliment in the 1430's .
I have also found out many interesting facts about my family. My ancestors were some of the original pilgrims that landed at Plymouth Rock. I also have one that wrote the song High On A Mountain Top. I am related to Joseph Smith. One of my relatives was the first baptism Brigham Young did. I am also an Indian Princess for the Iroquois Tribe. I may not look like it But if you saw my dad and brother the Dark Indian skin and deep brown eyes on my brother .
I am glad I know these cool facts I need to dig further and get their Temple work done.

So since School got back in session from Christmas break I drove him to and from school every day for almost 2 weeks. . Her boyfriend the son's father has a real old van that he fixed up and everything was well . Well the last 2 days I had to take him home. She was crying on the phone she has no transportation for her son to get him to school. She can't get a loan to get a used vehicle . I offered to get him and take him back she said no I can't do that to you. I wish I had the money to help a great friend in need. I f any of you have a car for sale or know of someone who does let me know. She can't afford more than 1200.00 that is all she can save up . She lives on disability checks.

We all must work together. I was in Relief Society Sunday. And It was sparse. Courtney's in laws asked is that it. We had maybe 10 counting her in laws. The last few Sundays we have been getting smaller. Our goal as a Relief Society is to get the room to standing room only. We have so many inactive sisters total number of sisters in our records is 135. I urge all of you to do your Visiting teaching.
The song As sisters in Zion was written by 2 pioneer women. One day on the trail they asked what they could do to make the burden light of others and as they were talking the words came to mind and they shared it with all the sisters that were with them. It has always been one of my favorite songs since I entered the Relief Society almost 11 years ago.
We all must work together to build up the kingdom. We will see the blessings as we do. My goal is to get 100% this month what is yours?

Splish splash

is what I can do in my basement. The water is every where and the only thing I can do for it is let my laundry pile absorb the stuff in the laundry room . Put down towels around the other corners. Come tax money I am tearing up the walls and redoing them so it won't leak . I don't mind a trickle but when it gushes there is a problem.

When Noah is caring

Sunday while I was in my Feverish state I would scream if somebody touched me their hands were like ice just out of the deep freeze. Scott was so worried he said if the fever climbed any higher we were going right to the ER for an Ice Bath . When Scott left the room Noah was in tears Rainey said whats wrong Noah Said I don't want mommy to go tot the hospital if she goes her be dead. I was in to much pain to laugh. He cares sometimes a little to much. I guess I want my son not to be afraid to show his emotions . I love Noah so much.

My Favorite things

When I am sick I like being comforted by my favorite things. My favorite pajama pants. They have penguins on them. Had them since I got married. My favorite sweatshirt. My favorite blanket. Most of all my favorite dish Neapolitan Ice cream . For breakfast lunch and dinner. To bad I am so stuffed up I can't enjoy the flavors. Also my favorite drink Hot Chocolate to soothe my sore throat.
What do you do when you are sick?
