As for packing the house....still only about 1/2 way done. By the time we went to the doctors, saw people at her old work,went to McDonald's for lunch so Anna could play, went to the DMV, and went to Wal-Mart, the day was about over. I did get a little bit more packed, but not near what I wanted. Today I have no choice. I MUST FINISH PACKING!!! LOL!! We load the U-Haul truck tomorrow. Alright, I better stop procrastinating, and take my shower and get busy for the day. Take care all.

Anyhow, then today I set the alaram for 7:00am, and I either was so tired I slept through it, or it never went off. I also never heard my husband's alarm, nor did I hear him getting ready for work and that really scares me, because I always wake up before he leaves. I must have been catching up on sleep where as Monday night I didn't sleep but 3 hours, from midnight to 3:00am. Yes I was up at 3:00am yesterday ready for the day. UGH! It was horrible.
Well, now that we have an even later start to our day because I wanted to come on here, I better get Anna and I ready for the day. We have a lot to do. I still do not have an entire trunk of boxes and newspapers yet for the move, but we will get there by Friday, right? I sure hope so, that is less that I will have to get later. Have a good day all and thanks for sticking by me. I will get this schooling thing down and yes, my husband is right, we will probably need to start over and have a good start after Labor Day. I hope he doesn't read ths, it will boost his ego too much. LOL!! I was originally planning on starting then anyhow. Have a good day!

*Bob Jones Kindergarten Math (Math)
*Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons (Reading)
*Five in a Row (Story Time, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts)
*Study Dog Computer (Reading, Language Arts)
*Reader Rabbit Kindergarten (Reading, Language Arts)
*Jump Start Kindergarten (A little bit of everything)
*More Little Visits with God (ciizenship, Bible)
*Library Books (Every subject area and fun)
As you can see, it is quite an extensive list and seems to be a lot, but we usually only use one computer program a day. If we do two, we do Study Dog first and then one of the other two. She loves computer time. We also have a white board for free drawing and writing, but using less paper. We tend to use it at the end for a bit of a reward. Anyhow, one day down with all and how many to go??? LOL!! We will be fine and we are both enjoying it. I couldn't imagine her stuck all day in a regualr class and having to be quiet and stay still. LOL. She is doing so good with what we are doing. Even with everything added in, we are less than two hours of work, so I am happy with that. We do about 45 minutes to and hour, take a break, and then do the rest. She likes the break and so do I. Anyhow, I better go for now. We are starting to get ready for the rest of our day. I must work and Daddy works late, so it is off to her Aunt's house for a few hours. Thanks all and please keep praying that my mom's move goes smoothly. Take care.

All that has changed...She called me today and we have the move set for the last week of August, which gives me about 3 weeks. I will be driving up on the 25th, after work and a family outing. I will be going up with Anna late at night and we will have about 3 days to clear out and pack everything up, then we will load the U-haul or whatever company truck we rent, to move her this way. This gives me approximately 1 week to find her a place to live here and all.
Please pray that God's will be done in this situattion. This is a good move for her and I will feel alot better about having her closer. Pray for things to come through just as HE planned. Pray for peace in this move and strength for my family as we help her get here. Thanks all and God bless!!

Here is one of Anna thinking about going in:
This one shows her first initial shock of cold water:
A little more brave, she is actually touching the water:
Cooling off in the shade with some new friends:
As you can see she had fun and also got drenched, but was dry before we left. It was a lot of fun, but my goodness it was HOT! We may need to re-think our field trips in the heat of summer. LOL! Next I will be complaing that it is too cold.
Update on homeschool starting: We have all the books, and I even have some bulletin boards set up and ready. This weekend I will be playing with the schedule and we will hopefully start our first subject on Monday. Praying that it will work. If not, there is nothing indicating we have to start at a certain time, so we may wait till after Labor Day. Time will tell. My planning time today is shot out the door with work, which I love, it just hurts my planning time. Maybe tomorrow with laundry? Who knows, but we will start!

Now for family woes...I am really worried about my mother. She has been fighting to get her short-term disability payments started since February, and has had no success. We are in the appeal time, but it has until middle of September to be finalized. How can they deny my mother these benefits that she truly needs?! I am appaled at what it is doing to her and have been watching my mother decling healthwise. She has not paid her mortgage since January, has had our churches help in keeping utilities on, the states help keeping utilities on, and everything. She has no medications left to manage her Multiple Sclerosis and we are all feeling the effects of it, not just her. The state will not help out with utilities anymore until she goes to the doctor, she can't go to the doctor because she has no means of paying them as her insurance has been gone for some time, and that means also no medications or financial help. She does not qualify quite yet for Medicaid, or she would go that route. How can I help her? I am so at a loss and so far away from being able to say come stay at my house for a while. I have asked her to move down here where we are so I can get her to appointments and such and she could get a 1 bedroom apartment for next to nothing here, but she is unwilling to leave her house at this point. She bought that house for her and intends to live there until they kick her out I am sure. I just don't know where else to turn to get her help. if anyone is out there reading this, I am asking for your prayers in getting a swift decision from the appeals group. We don't have till the middle of September. She needs her medications now. She can not function without them. We needs prayers for God's favor. We just need a lot of prayers. My mother's health and welfare really depend on it. Thanks.
