I've noticed when people haven't blogged for a while they always title the post "update". So, in following others steps, I title this, "Update". Because I am tired and do not want to forget anything I will do this blog bulleted style.

-School is out (and has been for awhile). I made a B in Microbiology and was somewhat disappointed, I really thought I was going to be able to pull off an A. I am through with all of my prerequisites and am now just waiting to be accepted to a nursing program. ( I guess I should apply, or I could be waiting forever.)

-I've been thinking about going to work part-time in the fall as a CNA, just to get my foot in the door, and to keep my skills up. So far, just a thought.

-Ben is still the cutest little boy. He is so funny. And very ornery. Very. He walks every where now, no crawling. Can I start potty training yet? New words--blankie, nigh-nigh!, Papa, keys, kisses, juice.

-They are doing major lay-offs at John's work, so that has really been on our minds.

-Oh, I saved $80 on groceries last week, my personal best.

I really thought I would have more than 5 bullets, now I feel somewhat silly for using it, oh well.

The Hair Catastrophe of '09

Last night while laying on the couch I found a small round brush. Apparently I was bored so I began twirling it in my hair. Until it got stuck. On the side you may ask? Or perhaps the back. No. Right in front. For thirty minutes I tried untwisting. I then added conditioner to the mix of things, then lotion to no avail. By this point my head was gushing blood from me trying to yank the brush out of my hair. Ok, maybe it wasn't gushing or bleeding at all, but it did hurt. I am pretty sure it is bruised today. While greasing my hair and considering putting mayo in my hair (then realizing I think that is when you get gum in your hair), a little pair of scissors catch my eye. I am desperate. I can feel panic over taking me. Or maybe it is anger due to my husbands uncontrollable laughter. Whatever then reason, I grab the scissors. I try to salvage as much hair as possible. It started at about a centimeter and I was able to get it to an inch. So instead of a burr in front, I have spikes. Go ahead get a good chuckle at my expense, my husband did or does, every time he sees me he starts laughing.

Failed...failed miserably.

Television is just way too tempting. Or maybe it was the weather. Perhaps it was my husband sitting on the couch watching TV and asking, "Hey, Amy, you want to watch this?" (He never asked this before I stopped watching.) I lasted from Thursday to Monday at 7:00 PM. Maybe somewhere that is considered a month. John told me not to consider it a failure, but a lesson learned. I must concur. Perhaps just monitoring what I watch would be a much more attainable goal for me. The television is not on during the day, except for Sesame Street. I had the bad habit of not actually watching TV, but keeping it on. And, I am not going to watch R rated movies and really monitor what types of TV shows I am watching. I really believe what goes in, must come out.
Finals are today, so what am I doing? Writing a blog. Should be studying, but I am not. Thats all, go ahead, snicker about my television defeat. I really should watch writing a blog that millions read (there is about a million of you..right?) about trying something new, especially, if there is a possibility of failure.

Cousin Abram came to stay and we had such a great time.

We played in the froggy pool and we loved to splash each other.

Cousin Abram showed me playing on the sandbox is just as much fun as playing in the sandbox.

We read books to each other.

Took wagon rides...note, two boys in a wagon is much heavier than one. I thought we may not make it up the hill.

and we took baths.
