Only Tuesday

Good Tuesday Morning!
I am up earlier then usual, the horse and dogs must hear something outside and they just won't settle down so here I am up at 4:30am - Yikes!

Not much new here, No job yet for my husband.... Since my husband's boss told him that is was only temporary, he keeps thinking each week he will call.... Yesterday, he said he was going to get a tire fixed at around 3:00pm and we didn't see him again until 8pm! He was hanging out with these bunch of guys who sit around all day and drink beer : ( I told him we were just getting ready to send out a search party for him and he just shrugged his shoulders and didn't say anything. He has projects around the house that he could be doing so it really get's on my nervous that he thinks it's okay to be spending money on beer...

School work is going real slow!!!!! I am trying to settle my brain down from thinking of ways to save money (We still haven't implemented any of my ideas yet!) and get back to planning our school week. It is hard enough to get Kelly to remember what she is learning on a normal day but now things are worse knowing that her father has no job and the bills just keep coming in. Her biggest fear it to loss the internet & honestly I need it too, writting to you guys is my only outlet. Anyway, I gave up on Astronomy (I am going to sell the apologia book to make some money for bills), Kelly knows the basics of it and she really doesn't have any interest in it like I do so we will move on. I am really hoping to focus on Zoology 3 and do work pages on each animal we cover since she just LOVES all kinds of animals.
This is us: A few streets over from us yeaterday there was a massive amount of police cars at this one house, not sure why they were there but our first thought is are the poodles we see sitting out in the yard okay? We are nuts that way! I keep hoping & praying that school work finally kicks in for Kelly but she really has me worried, what will this child do for a job if her learning skills are so low. I mean math is like pulling teeth with her and we are still only working on divison problems. The one area she is doing a bit better on is reading, she LOVES the Geronima Stilton series of books and actually spends a bit of time reading them!

I did start a Frugal Families group on yahoo for families in our area like us who are struggling during these tough times. I have 13 people who have signed up, not to many yet but I hope more do. I thought it would be a good idea for people to be able to share ideas & tips on where to buy the cheapest food, cut bills ect. It gives me something else to think about anyway.

Did I mention that I dropped one of my library books and it has a major stain on the cover? I am in hot water now.... the rest of the book is not touched so I am hoping when I return they let me slide on it..... that seems to be the way my week is going already : (

Hope everyone has a wonderful day today!

I'm selling our apologia biology to make ends meet. Your post really touched me...several similarities.
