Is this thing on??

Yeah....i've been thinking that I didn't give this all I should have. And of course I would have this revelation the day before I go back to work. Hmmm.
Tomorrow The Boy is 13.
Happy Birthday, Boo.
I'm proud you're my kid.

Long time no hear....

Yeah, sorry 'bout that! I was a bit discouraged because I din't think anybody was reading. Then I read Denise's blog and she said that she didn't get a comment for four months! I guess I shouldn't complain. we are! Spring break is long over with and now we're counting the days until summer. Actually, I'm counting the days until my ASP Leadership meeting in Palm Springs. Five days! I heard that 1700 people are signed up. Should be fun.
Now let's see...The boy's attitude seems to be taking a turn for the better. Which is good for him because I was ttthhhiiisss close to feeding him to the crocodiles at the Zoo. Portland wasn't amused. He and JT are getting along better. Maybe it's because Mr. Newman is back in town and I'm in a better mood? Could be. It's so nice to have him home. It was a long six weeks with him in Big Bear. We had a great Adult Trip to the desert. No kids. It was wonderful. The wind was blowing so hard that we couldn't put up the tent, so we slept in the back of the trailer. It was kinda romantic! Mr. N has been paying extra attention to The Boy....taking him to baseball practices, going to all his games, going riding together. Maybe that's what has made the difference. Before Mr. N popped the big question he got TB's "permission." Which was kind of cool. TB was very excited I guess because the next day all his little seventh grade girlfriends showed up at the ASP all atwitter to see The Ring. Ah....The Ring! It's beautiful. More than I could ever imagine having. N has been wonderful. I have so much more to say, but now I'm rushed for time. I'll be back soon, promise.

SD Zoo...finally....oh and aol SUCKS!



I've tried....again. Why won't it work???


I haven't post here. Maybe because I tried to post that video and couldn't figure it out and ended up getting pissed off and saying FUCK IT! Portland has given me step by step instructions to do it, he's so wonderful, but I don't want to try it yet. Maybe later this week. My vacation seems to be slipping away and I'm sad about it. I don't want to go back to work...even though I saw a student today at Walmart and it made me miss the kids! But not the daily grind. I like having dinner ready at 5:30! I like sleeping until 7:30! Feel sorry for me, please! Things around here have been pretty good. Just the normal ups and downs of Teendome with The Boy. We had a pretty major incident yesterday (on EASTER!!) that left me in tears. Mr. Newman and Mom were pretty great about it and gave me some good advice. I'm lucky. If I were Newman, I would be RUNNING FOR THE HILLS! But he's hanging in there. He left again for Big Bear this week. Maybe not the whole week though. Sigh. Last night he told me that his mom and g-mom would be by to pick up the ring that his g-mom gave to him to give me as an engagement ring. It had/has a funky setting that really isn't "me" so he wanted to have it re-designed to what I wanted. It's been sitting for a couple months. I don't think that either of us are/were ready to "go there." Well, maybe he has other thoughts? They picked up the ring with what I wanted it look like. His mom called and said that it would be done in about 10 days. I don't know what N has in mind. Maybe he's gonna pop the question? It's inevitable. We've talked about tieing the knot before the end of the year. I mean...what the hell are we waiting for? We're not kids. I don't know. If he asks, I'll say yes. No doubts. He's wonderful. I just worry what other people will/would say because it's so soon. Why do I care so much about that??? Shit, he moved in after only three months! And that's very not like me at all. We'll see what happens. I know that I'm crazy about him, and he feels the same way.
Anyway...this week I'll be taking The Boy and his "Not-Girlfriend" ice skating. Then we're having a big slumber party here with one of JT's friends, The Cousin and his friend, and The Boy. I've offered to have one of his friends, but he states that he doesn't have any friends. Sigh. This coming from the child that says that the only place that he is happy is at school....with his friends.

On Deck

Oh how I love Spring Break. Well, any break actually. Mr. Newman got up at the ungodly hour of 3:45 and was on the road at 4:15. I fell right back to sleep until 7:30. Heaven! He's back in Big Bear, but keep your fingers crossed that it won't be for the whole week.
We rented a grip of movies yesterday and my goal is to get them all watched in a day or two. Tomorrow I'm taking The Boy, JT and The Cousin to The Zoo. I'm really looking forward to that. I'm not sure why I'm all fired up about it. I've not been to the zoo in eons. Looking at their website it seems that they have all kinds of new exibits. I even found a coupon online. I'm very excited! Right now I'm off to watch Margot At The Wedding. Then it's Michael Clayton. I love watching my boyfriend act. Betcha didn't know that GC was my secret BF, did ya?
