So, I'm sittin' here trying my best to finish up my large mini M&M Blast from Sonic and it's just not going down. Tomorrow is my son's first school dance and I am about to pee myself with excitement. Was that TMI? Sorry. But really, though!! His first Homecoming. Eeeee!!

Is it that he's going on his first "date" that has my stomach in a bunch? He certainly isn't too excited about putting on a shirt and tie (this is the Mohawk/Fauxhawk kid) and giving a girl a wrist coursage in front of her parents. They are going to dinner first with several other couples. I've explained how to tip the waitstaff and the importance of opening doors (including the car door), but I can tell he's all "eh, do I have to?" So, I threw in how his date will be the envy of all the other girls when they see what a gentleman he is.

He thinks I'm an idiot. :)

It has to be tough, being a teenage boy. You want to impress the ladies and look cool doing it. It's only when he reaches manhood that he will realize just how cool it looks when you impress us.

I'm still here...and so is the house!! Woo woo!!

Sorry I have been gone so long! I had no idea so much time had passed.

First, thank you for all the well wishes! I feel terrible that I didn't get back here sooner!!

We did not receive any help from insurance or anywhere else. However, we found a contractor who is doing the work for about half what it was supposed to cost. Although it will completely wipe us out financially, we are very grateful that we won't be losing the house down the ravine. And we can always make more money.

They are still working back there and I am excited to see how it all turns out. It seems our side yard is also in danger so, we have fill being dumped there to prevent another cave in. At least when it's all finished, it will be safe and we won't ever have to worry about it again.

The news did a follow up and after watching myself, I have come to the conclusion that I am an idiot on camera. :)

As far as classes, I have a paper to write on WWI and I'm a little intimidated...I also have a big paper to write for my Social Work class and I'm really pumped about that one! I got to pick my subject and you can't beat that, right?
