Our First Year

Our First Year: "Can I get this stuff to work right today or not? I forgot to mention that yes, that is Aunt Kathy and Murphy in the pic with mom. Seen more of them this year than in the last 4, I think. Ok, pics of mom's condo. Enjoy. "

I forgot to do an outside picture. Well, this was with the snow. Eww, glad that is gone.  Posted by Hello

The house is looking good. It's not the White room anymore. The walls and everything are much softer now with the paint. Has she even been there a whole month yet now?? I think so. Well, off to visit her today. Furniture being delieverd. Later Posted by Hello

By the way - yes - that was me (tam) who wound up being Mr. Incredible. I think it was the chicken wing answer.
Alright, I'm getting the camera. I know - too much talking, not enough pictures.

What, when where why?

Sure it is.

The weather is confused.

Life in Wixom - I still have a job. How about that. Looks like I get to keep it for next year too.
I have to admit that I have been hiding out a bit. But actually Tom and I have dragged ourselves out of the house several times in the last few weeks.
We drove to Toledo to see "The Friends of the Bob and Tom show". If you live near Toledo or north far enough, you can hear "Bob and Tom" on a hard rock station in the morning. Funny guys.
We went to a movie. Wow, can't even remember what it was.
We managed to go out to eat with Rob and Naarah - but I mentioned that in the other blog.
We had to rebuild one of my computers. It is still acting up, I had to get a new power supply. I have a back up mother board for the moment. Either the one I have will puke, or I will be sending it back. I got the mother board, because the one I had made no boops, or beeps. Made me very nervous.

THE GOOD NEWS...... They have changed Tom's job once again. He is no longer a slave to the machine. They found someone else to do that. Tom is now in charge of all the updating on the machines, because - they would make him do it anyway. At least now they found someone else to babysit the line people. They really can not seem to keep running correctly without someone standing over there shoulder. Sort of like my high school students.
Tom is so very happy. He does not have to work 14 hour days and 7 days a week now.
The paychecks will be smaller, but spending time with him will be worth it. Plus, now I can make he help get some work done. lol

OK, Stuff you might want to know about.

Mom is moved in, she has her furniture and everything out of the storage units. How, I don't know. You can not walk in the basement of the condo.
She is practically done painting the house. I am freaking amazed. She is going to get tendinities again, I know it. At least Aunt Shirley and Kim have been helping with the base painting and Kim's boyfriend has been doing a lot of the manly stuff. How nice.
I finally dragged Tom down and we helped her with a big load of stuff. We filled up both vehicles and moved some stuff around.

I have to take some pictures of her house and post them.
Rob and Naarah are getting married in May.
School doesn't get out until June 23 and I have to be back to work on August 1st. So, if you want to see me. It has to be in July.
Rich, clean the house, we'll be there in July. Not sure if over the 4th or the week after. LOL
Anyone else we have to fit in???

Thank Goodness for Spring Break (that is too early this year), it starts on Friday.
Have a great Easter, if that is your bag.

What its MARCH already???

Someone pinch me, because it still looks like January out there. Well, I certainly hope that the March coming in like a Lion is going to help it go out like a lamb. Easter is very early this year, and I really do not want to be dealing with SNOW during my time off.

3 and 1/2 straight weeks before we get there. Did I mentions having to hang on lately???
Oh yeah, a lot of schools took yesterday off because of the snow... Once again I work in an insane district that is always open.

I spent some time with adults this past weekend, it was amazing. Friday the teaching crew hit 8th hour. We needed some adult talk time. Saturday I helped mom move a bunch of stuff. We got help from Mike, Kimmy and Lynn. That was nice, Lynn brought food. VERY Big help.
Saturday night, ran into Rob and Naarah on the freeway home. Almost literally from their point of view. Ok, so I passed them. Car has a V8 what did you expect.
Naarah rings me up and says, "You drive a bit fast don't you?" By the time I figure out I passed them it was funny. We talked while I drove home and decided, hey adults at dinner. What a concept.
I drag poor tired Tom out the door and we had dinner at El Nibble Nook. It was nice.

Sunday I FIXED the router. It was working, but not up to its potential. Happy to say I managed to fix it myself and did not have to go get a new one. Hmm, need to remember to update firmware more often. LOL

School is school and snow keeps coming. I was greatly wishing for that snowblower yesterday. Paid a kid walking by with a blower $20 to help me find the driveway. I felt it was worth every penny, the snow was REALLY heavy yesterday.

Life is rough, and on we go.
