Anyway, that's my post for the day. Have to go to her college this afternoon for family day for the day before the kids start. Jessi said she is going to go no matter how she feels so we shall see. She hasn't woken up yet so I am hoping a lot of her swelling went down during the night.

I am having a very hard time with my youngest growing up. We are so so so close and thankfully she is staying home for now, as her college is only a 20 minute drive. She may end up changing her mind later on but for now.....
She is majoring in biology and concentrating on zoology. She is a huge animal lover and that is not even getting close to it. She will do amazing in whatever she goes into after college. She graduated from high school with a 3.9 GPA and is an amazing young lady. She went through her school years without getting into trouble one time. Isn't that amazing?? I know she is not perfect, but still I could not ask for a better child.
I work at home still thankfully. I am a freelance writer who works a lot of hours but well worth it. Now that my daughter is hardly ever home, my husband working, and my other two kids out on their own, I am finding myself more alone than ever. I am a shy person who does not make friends easily. I moved to TN when I was 20 from Illinois, which is where I grew up. It is much harder to make friends when you become an adult. Now that I am alone I need to make some but how? I will have to figure this out, or I will be by myself more than ever. Well, that is it for today. I am so sorry that I stopped blogging but I will keep up with this blog a lot from now on. If any of you have children in college please let me know how you handled it.

My son, who is now 20 years old, went though a time when he thought smoking pot was okay. Smoking pot did nothing but put him in jail 3 different times. The last time he spent the longest time there and something changed in him. He is now working full-time and eating normal again. I actually have my son back. He now tells me that he did much more than smoke pot, and actually took Ecstasy pills. No Crack or Cocaine or any of that stuff but wow what a horrible time in this household during that year.
My daughter, Jessi, is now 15 and just received her learner's permit. We are driving every afternoon in my quiet neighborhood. I am going to let her practice every single day until I feel she is ready to venture out onto the main roads. She is actually doing very good for someone that has never driven very much. She is doing great in high school and has a 3.7 GPA right now. She is so smart and such a happy child. I could not ask for more.
Well, I can't catch you guys up on everything all at once. You will get it in bits and pieces at a time. So here I go on this blog again. Let's see if I can keep it going this time.

Okay - I was way wrong. Alexis Grace??? Give me a break! She is a much better singer than Scott. What is America thinking? Oh well, my 2 guys are still in the running (Danny and Kris) so we will see what happens next week.
I am a day late posting this but busy, busy, busy as I am sure everyone can understand that!
Hope everyone has a great Friday.
