recap of the week

A week in my Crazy world. Saturday the kids played in the pool and we cooked hot dogs on the grill. I enjoy being outside with the kids, they always go to bed and fall asleep quickly after an afternoon outside. I worked in my flower beds and enjoyed their beauty. I love flowers. Sunday morning we had pancakes for breakfast and sandwiches for lunch. Dinner was Blackeyed peas, cabbage, chicken rice and corn bread.
I kept my niece on Saturday and Sunday. She is 3 and doesn't stay away from home much but we sure enjoyed having her.

Monday was a nice day. No appointments! I done laundry, watched an old movie and played with Kyson, Lauren and Makayla. Selena did Tuna helper for dinner. Kieanna and Cora fixed sides and helped too. Tuesday Doreese had an appointment for vaccines at 8 and DJ had an 11:45 at the podiatrist. After that I rushed home and done soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner so we could head out to the Braves game. Everyone had a blast and came home tired and sleepy. Wednesday, Promise seen her psychologist, with what I feel like isn't making very much difference. I have decided to home school Promise. I'm looking into a web based home school program. I had an appointment for an IEP on Austin at 1:00. That went very well. He is improving, just slowly. Faith, Hannah and Katelynn had dance class, their recital is in June. They are excited. I fixed pork chops on the grill with peach cobbler for desert. Tanya (Keith's Sister) came and we had a nice long visit and watched a little TV together. We use to spend so much more time together, but don't get to much anymore. Thursday I done laundry, and sorted out everyone clothes. They get so jumbled up. I went grocery shopping and came back and watched Lauren for Tabitha to grocery shop. Dinner was Butter beans, mac and cheese and corn bread. Promise made the cornbread and Kieanna made a banana pudding. Staisha watched the kids while Keith and I had a night out. We bought several movies for the kids to watch. Friday was a BUSY day. I had to drop off Fefe at the vet at 7:30, take Marvin to the psychologist at 8:00, and Doreese, Destinee, and Anthony had dentist appointments at 8:30. Whew! It was stressful and crazy but I did manage it. I left the 3 at the dentist while I talked with Marvin's Dr. and then went back and picked them up. Doreese got a new phone and is so excited. I picked up Fefe and I fixed dinner, Beef roast, with carrots,and potatoes, salad, and green beans. Brian and Amey were suppose to come eat but did not show up. Keith, Daivon Anthony and Andrew went to the Gwinnett county Braves game and Andrew caught a ball! Staisha got sick with an asthma episode and scared me, but after some meds was OK. I got to bed late after Destinee and I sat up and played a computer game. Destinee and I made homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast. First time I had used this recipe. They turned out really good. This morning Kieanna, Selena, John , Robert and Cora went to sell donuts to help raise money for camp. I'm fixing to go pick them up right now. Of course this recap doesn't include taking Krishawanda and Doreese back and forth to work. I am really proud of them. Both have a job and are working hard. Destinee leaves for the National Guard on June 1st. I sure will miss her this summer. She will be gone 10 weeks. Now if I can just get my teenage boys motivated to do SOMETHING, like maybe work? Johnathan, Austin, Tyler, Andrew and Isaiah finished up their soccer games. That will give up a little more free time. At least until football/cheerleading starts in the early fall. It is still wet and dreary outside so I guess the kids will play in their rooms and maybe watch a movie today.
