Yes, I didn't want to close the old one. There was just too much going on. But I am glad it is done now.

Good morning.

I have started my day praying for Colby and Junie's grandbabies.

I need to head out in a bit and shovel a roof on the shed...it has been a tiring Winter. I can't wait to see a patch of bare ground. lol

I'll also be picking up GG this afternoon, there is no school tomorrow since today is report card day.

Grem, here if you get a medical paper you can claim the cost of special gluten free products as medical expenses at tax time. It might be something for you to check into...it doesn't put any money in your hand at the time but might help you out at the end of the tax year.

Have a good one everybody.

Good morning. Yes, my first thoughts of the day are with Colby and others in need of prayers. Cindy has had a difficult time lately too.
I am up early. But I feel rested and ready to face the day. It is supposed to warm up today and I'm glad because my old bones can use it.

Good Morning.

I too begin & end my day with prayers. Also an extra set on Sunday. I hope that we hear good news on Colby soon.

No rain here so far. My BIL & SIL called last night. They are coming to the area next week and will be staying here.

so more for carol to get done in a timely manner.

I think I will start my day with a few errands.

Good afternoon, I just got back with GG and just in time...it has started to freezing rain.

I hope you enjoy your visit with the family Junie...I never have to worry about such matters. It's one of the few perks of having a tiny house. lol

Can anyone help me with a few tips with trying to convince a 5 year old to go to school...she is refusing once again.

Well, me being from a "different era" think this way.....
You tell her, she does not get a vote--that school is not optional. END of discussion....

.........But you could say: "it is a non-optional social convention"... (I watch too much Big Bang Theory)

$1 per A on a report card? Or if she's old enough to know the value of money it may have to be more, lol.

Though at that age it might have to be a dollar for each smilie lol.

Do dig around and see what is bothering her first of all. It could be something you can help her with, i.e. a bully, a bad teacher, boredom. If you rule out those type of things then go with Carol's "not optional". Because it isn't.

Nothing new to report on Colby.

Sunny, Aubry cried everyday for 2 years because she didn't want to go to school. It makes you feel like a dog for making them go but what can you do. We tried everything.

I like Tina's approach to going to school, Sunny.

Sheri, I guess, no news is good news.

Good morning.

We've done the 'no option' but she lags until she misses the bus and then her mom has to hire a taxi to take her or call me. Then that became the new bad habit. She likes school...it's the 'going' that she is fighting. She told them at school that she'd go if she lived with me...problem is that I live in a different school district and I can't travel her a half hour to and from her school every day. It sure is draining.

Today we are under a heavy rainfall warning...I hope it stays above the freezing point, we do not need more snow lol

Sending prayers for Colby and family kissie

Good morning. It's going to be a lovely day.
I understand the problem with your GG now, Sunny. The only fix I see will punish everyone. That she cannot spend weekends with you if she doesn't attend school during the week. You would miss her. Mama would miss the break from her. But I think it wouldn't last long then. I had to do similar with my foster daughter, way back when... Like I said, it punishes everyone but it is one method that works.
My thoughts are with Colby and family too.

Good Morning.

I too understand now, Sunny. I hope you all figure this out. If nothing else, I guess time will take care of it.

Still praying for Colby, sweet little guy.

It is very windy here. So This is the new April 1st.... Happy April to you all.

Good afternoon.

I am thinking of getting someone to call the house and pretend it is the principle from the school...maybe he can scare her into making it to the bus on time lol

I am watching the rain fall, and I love it....just waiting for my ham to finish cooking. It has been a long time since we had a baked picnic ham.

Thank you all. Colby is still on the vent and is sedated somewhat but today he nodded his head to a question and wiggled his toes when asked to do so. They are going to try and wean him off his stuff over a 2 day period starting tomorrow. :)

Sunny, does someone walk her to the bus?

Good morning. I'm up and waiting on the sun this morning.
I don't know what I will do with this day. I think it will include going out for some gas and driving through a carwash. I can't stand the car being very dirty. And it's getting there.
And maybe I'll trim some hair and nails. Give the dog a bath. It's wide open. And warm.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday.

Good morning.

Wonderful news about Colby. Yes, my daughter or my nephew's girlfriend walks GG to the bus...it is just a quick walk down the lane.

My plan is to clean my car also today...the inside for sure. Two kids in the back seat all the time makes for a mess.

I have to make up the month's budget as well. Other than that is the usual housework and a quick run to the local grocer for eggs, milk and fruit.

Have a good day and thanks for whomever shared the sun. grin

Good morning...I guess we all didn't accomplish our errands yesterday. My car is not cleaned yet, the weather won't cooperate.

It is a lazy Sunday today.

Good morning. It's 55* out and supposed to reach 85* today. We'll see. It will be a good day to get ready for school tomorrow.
And that it my plan. A day of cleaning sheets and pampering my son (and myself).
I hope everyone has a good day.

The 14 year old girl in the room beside Colby who was in due to the flu died today. A bit unnerving for us.

WOW. (& not in a good way)

I don't know what to say....I would have to figure she either did NOT have the flu or had a compromised immune system.....

That is SO sad to say the least.

But how is Colby? Is he showing more signs of recovery?

The next 3 days are supposed the be lovely and the rainy Thurs through Sun. I'll enjoy the warmth while it is here.

Good morning.

I am so sorry for the loss of the young girl Sheri, continued prayers for Colby.

The weather is cold and windy....and more snow for this week. Guess the good thing is that I don't have to weed like Junie. grin

I have been trying to eat healthier but keep landing back to some bad habits...so today I will use the dreaded word 'diet'. It will keep me from sugar, sweets and soda. I never thought I'd be a person to see their weight get out of hand...it is scary.

Good Morning..Many errands to run today..
No sugar sweets or soda...well.. let me see.

I could do w/o sweets and if it had to be, without Soda..BUT..I need my sugar for my coffee. I was using Splenda, but between my blood sugar & the new findings, I switched to Stevia.. I hate it VERY much--so I am back to regular sugar...but then only have like 2 cups a day so that is not so bad I guess. I think what I need to do is exercise more..
