(Unit 3) Halloween treats for the kids...

     My kids had a good halloween which included a haunted forest and then lots of candy. My son is in scouts and they set up a haunted forest for the kids. They walked awhile with people jumping out at them along the way. We then sat at a campfire for a story which started out as scary and turned out very funny to them. They walked alittle ways further and heard another story before coming to a barn with Charlie Brown's Halloween playing. We then took a hayride back to the front where they carved pumpkins. This took place a week before halloween, but was a very fun night.

     Then there was halloween and trick or treat time. I took the kids to a few houses on our street and the street at the end of ours. We then went to church where they were having fun and games for the kids. For every game they played they received a handful of When it got down to ten minuted until closing they were receiving two handfuls of candy. Needless to say they went home with lots and lots of candy. My daughter had a celebration on Thursday morning (of trick or treat night). My son had a celebration on Friday afternoon (after trick or treat night). They both brought home treats from school as well. They have enough candy to last for weeks and weeks. All that counts is they enjoyed themselves!!!

Suggestions Appreciated!!!!

     Well, I feel like I need more hours in the day!!! I work part time and I am a full time housewife. I am a cub scout den leader and I am going to school. I really need to learn how to balance my time. I am not getting everything done that needs done. So far, I have gotten my school work done on time and I am grateful for that, but I am not getting as much done around the house (which is weighing on everyone). My husband is working late shifts right now after working mornings for so long. So, it is wierd everything is being flipped around...which is hard on the kids...especially our 4 year old daughter. Any suggestions or ideas will be so I am still trying to figure it out.

Just playing with my phone trying this out!! Excited.

Here we go!!!

     Well, my kids are both asleep and my husband is working. I am sitting on the couch writing about tonight and what tomorrow may hold in store. Tonight has been pretty smooth running and now its quiet so no complaints there. It is unusual to have total silence with having two kids and four dogs running around. My son's school held a fundraiser tonight at a restaurant so we went and ate. The kids had a good time and got excited that their dad popped in on his lunch break from work. It took about an hour after being home for them to wind down. But as I said they did and all is calm on the homefront.

     Tomorrow will start early as it usually daughter goes to school before 8am eastern. Her school has invited the local fire department to come in and teach the kids about fire safety. Most kids her age would be excited to have them come and be able to sit in the truck for a moment, but not her. She used to get excited and has been on a fire truck before and enjoyed it, but as I said not anymore. started almost a year ago when one of our neighbors passed. His wife who had alzheimer's had mentioned to someone that her husband had some explosives or bombs in the house. So, as a precaution they evacuated those who needed to be and told the rest of us to stay away from our windows and doors. I took my pets and my daughter and left for the day as to keep everyone safe and away from all of that. It was only a scare and no explosives or bombs were the way he passed from natural causes (in case you may be wondering). They had blocked the whole street and no one could come or go after I left. The scene was finally cleared and we were allowed back home, but the damage had been done. She is terrified of police and fire department personnel now. She cries at the thought of having to see them at school. I am going to stay with her and try to have one of the firefighters talk with her, but I am not sure if thats the right thing or if that may make it worse. I guess I will find out and go from there....I just want her to trust in them that way she feels protected if we needed there help. I am feeling bad for her and confused on just how to handle this situation. Honestly, she did not tell me thats why she is scared she happen to tell her teacher the other morning after crying in school because she had thought they were coming that day. Tomorrow may be a long day, but that will happen sometimes. After getting her home I will start on all my work for this week. Good luck to everyone out there!!!!!!!!!

Just a Tuesday evening!!!

     This is my first time blogging!! I am sitting on the couch as I just finished all my work for the week after getting both kids to bed....Quiet time...yeah!!! I am not totally sure what exactly to write about. Feel free to leave any comments or suggestions you may have. By the way I am also on Facebook and try to check it at least once a day. I will add some pics from the other computer another day so everyone will have an idea of what I look like.

     Here is a little about me...I am 27 years old and I am in my fourth term at Kaplan. I am married and have been for almost 10 years to Terry. We have two smart and adorable kids...Terry, 8 years old and Hannah, 4 years old. Terry is in the 3rd grade and Hannah just started head start. They both enjoy school which I find a blessing. I work part time as a home health aide and I am a den leader with my son's cub scout pack. I stay very busy, but I have been wishing for time to read again. I have not read a novel in so long I think I would fall asleep doing so. It seems as though there is never enough time in the day. There is always more that needs done. My husband is so supportive and helps out and tells me to keep going when I feel as though I am overwhelmed. Anyway that is it for tonight!!!!!

Goodnight All!!!!!
