It's a day in history!

Connor finally went #2 on the potty!!! Woo Hoo!! Let's hope he keeps it up. I guess we will see. He said it was fun and much easier to be back on his way to playing rather than having to deal with the cleanup.

It's coming along

The deck that is. Chris and his dad have been working today on the deck. It looks great. I can't wait until this is all done so we can have friends over to swim and barbeque. Next weekend the concrete patio is going bye bye, then to the paver patio. Everyday I wonder what did we get ourselves into? It will be worth it when all said and done.

My point and shoot takes great pictures, but I do miss my XTI.

Update from below post

Ok, so after saying I wish I were teaching, I check on the status of the certificate. It has been 7 years since I've graduated college. Can you believe it!?!?! I sure can't. I don't think I could even teach kids anymore. Well, my certificate expires on June 30. (What are the chances of me checking on it. Lucky I guess) I need to find out tomorrow what needs to be done to renew it. I don't think I can though because I have not had continuing education. Oh, wait, I can't find out at work, because I will be too busy. Maybe I'll try at lunch. (If I remember)

Work Sucks!!!

That's all! (It's this time of the year that I wish I were teaching)

He will never go...

POOP on the potty. Ok, Chris and I are getting really frustrated with this whole thing. Connor has been in underwear since the end of March and he still has not gone #2 on the potty. Even worse, it seems as if he is regressing on #1. He has been having a lot of accidents lately. NOt huge ones, but enough to need to change his underwear. He does ok when he is at Jan's or somewhere else, but I think he feels too comfortable at home and knows he has other clothes to change in to. He knows when he has to go, but he has just been stubborn, to me especially and refuses to try. Aarrgggg...

I am still here!

Our old pool and deck. BYe Bye!!

This picture was taken two weeks after the pool was taken out. The rain just wouldn't stop. We had our own little duck pond. We had to wait about three weeks to get the new pool installed. At the third week, Chris got ahold of the installer. We weren't on the list!! He was already several weeks behind due to the rain, so we we sure we wouldn't get it until July. Well, we worked out a deal, and he was able to get it in the last week of May. On the only dry day we had in a while.

We have been super bussy lately. I am totally stressed at work, which has lead me to give up on Weight Watchers. I plan to go back and I am trying to be somewhat concisious of what I am eating. Don't think it's working though. I will get through it, I know it. Chris is taking his last class for his bachelor's degree and it is a 6 week online course. (Yes, only one class after three years on not taking any!) Very intensive, but thankfully, there are no papers to write, because I know I would be helping with those. He's chugging along in the course, but it is consuming all of his time. Not only are we really busy at work, but we decided in May to revamp the backyard with a new pool, deck, and patio.
Sorry for the backwards post. I will show you more later. Chris needs the computer to finish his homework. Oh yeah, to add to the stress in my life, a prong in the memory card holder in my camera is bent. Probably not covered under warranty. Will cost about $200-250 to fix. 6 weeks for repair too. I am lost without it. I did get a small point and shoot for the time being. Not the same though.
