Happy Halloween, oh wait, we haven't had one of those in YEARS

So again, a lag in the posting, I gotta work on this here gig a little better ya think?? Yeah I know I do... Well, I decided not to donate for various reasons. I need to decide what we are going to do for us, before I commit to a donation for someone else. I am still doing my thing on ebay and it's going well. I am lucky that between this and my husband's job I am able to stay at home. I still haven't made a decision as to what I really want to do. I didn't realize I was this much of a procrastinator. I guess I really am not, there are just SO MANY things that I want to do. I don't want to start something and then decide its not for me. With this opportunity that I have, I should seize it and do something I love. My husband suggested Nursing since I love to help people, and I am pretty smart (if I do say so myself, and I do dammit!!) So I will investigate that and see where it takes me. I still haven't discarded the Real Estate Agent idea as hey, that does sound pretty exciting.

No news on baby2008 yet, still talking and seeing what our options are. We have a surrogate so that part is set (thank God for my former recipient, she is THE BEST!) So now we have to decide how to bring it all together. My choice would be doing a freeze all cycle and then doing an FET when the time arose, but guess what? Many clinics DO NOT support this!?!?! they want us to do a fresh cycle as this is what is optimal for success (read optimal for their success rates, BASTARDS!) So they aren't too keen on me coming in there with my high-falootin ideas and messing that up. There are a few decent clinics in our area, but I am not opposed to traveling to where my GS would live so I do have options. I have already started the baby2008 fund and am stashing accordingly so all systems are go for this as well.

The kids are being pre-teen and teenager on the school/behavior front. What happened to my well behaved sons?? They have left the building and in their place left behind some invasion of the body snatchers version of my kids. We usually let them "trick or treat" if they are doing well in school, but I cant tell you the last time I bought a costume for these kids, they have been the designated hander-outers to their friends. The oldest one "Ster" as he likes to be called now, has decided to just show up for school, and by show up I mean not do a damn thing! His co-henchman "Los" as we like to call him, is the long lost son of the absent minded professor. This kids will do his work but FORGET TO TURN IT IN!?! What the hell!?!?! OK so why do it son, if you aren't going to turn it in? His reply "I was going to but I couldn't find it, then when I did I was in another class, and it was too late" OK, can we say ORGANIZATION SKILLS???? This kid has none, and I have not found a way to give him any. Folders?-Check, Notebooks?-Check, Planner for assignments?-CHECK, screaming "TURN IN YOUR WORK" as he is on his way out the door to school?-CHECK. Does he turn it in once there- HELL TO THE NAW!!! So what is a girl to do?? Suffice it to say that last week was not a good week, but I can only hope that with each new week, there is a chance for change, so for now I will take that, and hope that we get thru 6th & 7th grade...
