Well I had a very nice weekend, Saturday the 3 amigos (Josh and his 2 friends) raced again,I love it!!! Last time I was a little scared it being the 1st time, but I was ok this time, my mom was the one freakin out....They did much better then last time, out of 58 cars they got 16th and it was called 125 laps early because of rain, so they only went 75 laps but last time they had to stop at 38 laps i think because they were having trouble with the car. It was FREEZING !!!! The wind was blowing so hard!!! Then that night we hasd some friends over for awhile, Eric even drank, the last time he drank was Superbowl...which is great, he said he just got burned out, he was drinking probably 1 or 2 times a week before....
Well I hope you had a wonderful weekend...
Here are some pics.
Only 5 more weeks til VACATION!!!!!!!YEAH

Sunday was my mom's birthday, so we all went to her house and hung out for awhile, I made us all dinner and we had cake and ice cream and she opened presents, I think Savannah was more into it then my mom she would jump up and down while she was opening them and then scream surpeise after....or wow!!

Well I wish I was in Oregon right now, my best friend Donna of 25 years is going to be a grandma.....Her daughter is goin to be induced first thing in the morning....She is going to have a little girl and her name will be Scarlett...It makes me so sad, cause i want to be there so bad, she is also getting married this month, and because i had to dish out 864 dollars for my van i am not sure i am going to be able to make it. Its not fair, we have been through every thing together and these last 7 years since we have moved apart have sucked not having her right here by me. We are still the best of friends and always will be its just different and it makes me real sad....
I love you Donna....and miss you so much!!!
Congratulations, wish i was there.

I can't say that enough today. I got off work a little early and went shopping with my mom. I have had 3 sleepless nights now and its really catching up with me. So I am hopeful I will get some sleep tonight. Tomorrow we are going to church, Savannah's school is putting on a huge Easter Egg hunt, games, music, food all that stuff. And Sunday we are going to my moms, we were supposed to go to the park but we are not to sure how the weather is going to be it started off early in the week in the 80's and now today 72 poosible rain, so if its a nice day we are just going to go for a little while.....I will post some pics....
Tonight Eric wants to go to see Blaze of Glory, it looks funny...Ya know what movie is really funny ( I thought ) was Wild Hogs, I havent laughed that hard in a long time. This one just looks like one of those so dumb you have to laugh movies....Oh well I picked the last one so it's his turn.
Have a great weekend and a wonderful Easter.....
Look forward to all the pics!!!

Well I am finding out how bad it really is. I spoke with Joshs child development teacher. He has made it to class 2 times in the last 4 weeks. Ya see teachers ease has benn down now for about 5 weeks, and i have received no calls from the school, but they are looking at me right now like i am the bad person. And the only reason I found out is because the computer did call my house Friday, and i checked on it Monday. Josh went to his room last night and didnt come out at all except to eat. this morning I woke him up at 7:00-7:10 and then at 7:20 I told him you know if you miss one day of drivers ed she is going to drop you, cause he missed the 1st week, which was understandable because it started a week before the other 9 week classes and we didnt know that. He says I know. and didnt get out of bed, at 7:30 I left, dropped off Savannah and I get a text from him saying why are you acting weird. I wrote back, weird ? he says you left without me, i said you didnt get ready, he wrote that his friend was going to get him, i said oh. he wrote you are acting like you dont care...i said Josh that is the farthest thing from the truth, you are the one that doesnt care and i cant do anything about it, unless i quit work to take him to every class, which is out of the question, we are definitly a 2 person income family, and although i think on one hand we can move to the ghetto and i can do just that walk him every day to each class, but on the other hand i think why...why should we all suffer cause he cant make it to class. I get him up every day and make sure he gets to school on time, when is some of the responsibility on him. I bought him an alarm clock and told him i leave at 7:30 if he wants a ride be ready.
Yes Michelle we have a deal that we will stay here until he graduates, Eric has the same thought we should just move back to Cali if he is going to act like this. I say it will be worse if we go back on our decision. I dont know what to do, I have taken everything he owns away from him down to a bed and dresser and blankets, it doesnt phase him. so i take away the things i think are important to him, the computer, video games, phone. The things that are going through my head now are drug test him !!! Eric says no, i say what is he doing while he is ditching (he says going to the park my himself) BULL ... I know what I did when I ditched. I am so blue right now, and feel like such a failure. And you know what sucks the most....I thought I knew him, the Josh I knew didnt ditch. I guess I dont know him. and do i really want to drug test him and find out that hes smoking pot, that will crush me, absulutly crush me. Would you drug test your son/daighter if you thought something was up ???
Thanks for letting me ramble on it makes me feel better...

Well today was an alright day.....til I found out my son is now ditching. I don't know what to do, take a week off and walk him to his classes, make him get a note from every teacher-everyday... I myself ditched alot and hated school and did everything in my power not to go, i was not a good teenager, and because of it i worked my ass off my senior year just to graduate on time. i had school before school, i took R.O.P. (had to work at a day care for extra credits) then had night school 3 night a week,it sucked I don't want him to do what i had to do. If I am not hounding him and being a b**** every minute about school, he slacks way off. I try to be lienant but that obviusly doesnt work. I like him am ready to throw in the towel..................This day sucks !!!!
