{The Reason This World Is Messed Up}

I was scrolling through my Instagram popular page yesterday and came across someones post saying You don't have to respect an adult if they don't respect you. Uh. No?

{Disney Bound...But Not Yet!}

I have been waiting years for this! D and I have been talking about going to Disney for the longest time, since before we even moved to this house. Well, really I have been talking about going to Disney for years. And I've been bothering D about it basically every summer lol.

{Why I'm OK With Them Not Eating}

I wouldn't say that my kids are particularly picky eaters. I think they (especially the boys) know what they like and unless it looks appealing to them or sounds like something that might taste good, they don't want it.

I've been told my countless people that I should make them sit there and eat until it's gone or I should make them at least try it. I've also been told by people that I shouldn't let them have something else if they don't want what's in front of them.

{All Alone Once Again}

The boys had their first day of school yesterday! I never thought I would see the day when I was happy to have this house to myself and not at least have Owen around, but I kind of love it. I get up and get them off to school. Well, actually I wake up and make sure the older two are awake and getting ready and then I go back to bed until it's time to get Owen up. He doesn't have to be at school until 8:26 (actually he can't walk through the doors until then). But after I'm done dropping him off I can come home and I have about seven hours before I have to be at the school again. I enjoy it.

{Took Gaige to the Doctor Today}

As most of you probably know, Gaige struggles in school. He's so much like his mother it's sad. I passed this crap on to my kid and it kills me every single time I have a meeting with his teachers. Although since getting his IEP (Individual Learning Plan) set up he has made great strides in catching up to his classmates, he is still behind. Especially in reading. He has awful handwriting and he can't spell even the most common words correctly. I know it frustrates him when he's at school and his teacher is having him rewrite things because his handwriting is so awful, and I know he hates being pulled out of class to have tests read to him because he just can't do it on his own.

{Dawn's First Day}

Today was Dawn's first day of 9th grade! She had to be up by 6am. Well, in reality since she doesn't do anything with her hair and she doesn't wear makeup, she could have slept until 630am, but she didn't. I got up around 7 to make sure she was up because she had to be on the bus by 715. Ugh. Why does school start so early?

I told her to stand by the door to get pictures like I've done every single day for the last five years of living here and she gave me attitude about it of course. Which means I got crappy pictures.

{End of Summer = No Fun}

I know I haven't blogged a whole lot lately. There just hasn't been anything going on that's worth talking about.

Dawn starts school on Friday. The boys start Monday. I can't wait. I would love to be one of those moms that's so sad when her kids start school, and I was when they were little. Especially when Owen started. I had no idea what to do with myself when they were gone. But now I'm looking forward to it. I can do as I please all day without hearing someone bitch because they don't want to do what I'm doing or they don't want to go somewhere we're going.

{Officially a High Schooler}

Well that was a friggin' process. It took me an hour and a half to register Dawn today. Why so long? Because I had to leave the school and come back twice after realizing I didn't have everything they needed. So annoying.

{ #weightwatchers Update!}

I just went back to the points plus system on Thursday so I wasn't getting my hopes up too high about any kind of weight loss. I had weighed myself on Sunday and I'd lost a little over a pound. But I knew from previous weeks that I shouldn't get attached to that number because more often than not, it would change.

{ #weightwatchers Bye Bye Smart Points}

Well folks, I gave weight watchers smart points a solid four months. I've lost six pounds so far and I'm giving it up. It's just not working for me. That doesn't mean it won't work for you. So if you're wanting to try it out, you definitely should.

{School Time Again!}

We are officially just three weeks away from the first day of school. I don't know where the hell did the summer go?! Well, I kind of know where it went I guess. Since D got hurt at work and ended up having surgery in the middle of summer, we didn't have many options for going anywhere. But then again, it's kind of good that we couldn't go anywhere because we have our big Disney trip this December. The more money we don't spend on a summer vacation is that much more we have for our winter vacation. Anyway though, summer is over soon and I'm pretty excited about it.

{Boringness And Wedding Day!}

I feel like I've been neglecting this blog lately. I'm not doing it on purpose, I just haven't had anything happening that I'd want to post about. My day consists mainly of laundry and binge watching Netflix (right now it's the L Word).

I did manage to put on some real clothes and get out of the house last night though. My uncle and (now) aunt got married yesterday! It's an amazingly beautiful ceremony at this farm. She DIY'd the hell out of her decor too. I was so impressed! I wish she would have been around when I was planning my wedding. She nailed the country chic theme. It was a total pinterest wedding if I've ever seen one!
