Happy New Year...a bit late!

Well, a three month hiatus. It's been too long since my last post. Here's hoping I will find the time to keep up with this journal.

So, what's new:
*Chris is enjoying his full time job. I must say, I am so proud of him. I just pray and hope he does a good job. He also got his Learner's permit. Three long years to get that baby! He is so proud! Weekends find him busy with his new girlfriend. I must say I like her. They are two peas in a pod and so well suited for one another.
*Jules is still the know it all eighteen year old with an attitude. He has senioritis big time and it is showing in his grades. He is just sliding on by. He is no longer an A student and is happy with C and D's. That doesn not go over well with me! His soccer team won states and so enjoyed playing for a winning team this year. He "found" alcohol and I must say, I guess this is the reason for the constant battle between the two of us. Can you say vladie and nipple tassel? I guess his drinks of choice are that of vodka. And he thinks I was born yesterday????? His father is very passive about the whole thing and I am the outspoken one! It makes for lots of dissention around the house. He got accepted to a few colleges, but has decided to go to Bloomsburg for accounting. Quite frankly, I don't see him making it through a year. He does not have good study habits and hates school. Not quite sure why he wants to even go to college. Oh, that's right, he needs to get away from Palmyra and his strict parents, especially his Nazi stepmother (that's my nickname to his friends, among others...I'll make that another post).
*Lighty continues to work for Pyramid Construction. He is enjoying it. He likes the challenge it brings him. He also says there is less stress than his previous job. I just am not liking the long hours he is working; not to mention 6-7 days a week. This too shall pass. He is also teaching Chris how to drive and playing referee between Jules and me. I wish he would step up to the plate more where Jules is concerned.
*This is my second year in the enrichment program. I am loving it. My program started at about 70-75 students and as of today, I am servicing about 132 kids. FUN! I am still painting, stamping and scrapbooking. In fact, I am hoping to use this blog for more of my art stuff! I just need to get my butt in gear and post photos of my creations.
***Well, update completed. It's time to get off the computer and use the next hour to do some scrapbooking. Then, I am making supper. I have another new recipe to try on the family.
