What Netflix Movies Have You Enjoyed?

Kelly & I have been working on the Mayans which I have been finding to be sooo interesting! I am amazed that there hasn't been more interest in this area from archaeologist, So much of it has not be uncovered yet. Maybe not a good idea to work on a topic with a teenager where it mentions that the end of the world will be on December 21, 2012! The child is now crazed that she wants to learn how to drive before the "end of the world".... Anyway we have been hitting on a number of topics lately which have turnd out to be on the depressing side once we saw a few vidoes on them. We were working on food and watched "The Future Of Food" and it showed that now even most all of the seeds we grow our food from have been genetically altered in many ways. I had planned on watching a number of other food dvd's on that topic but it was so darn depressing we switched off to the Mayans which are saying we are all going to die on 12/21/12 Yikes! What dvd's have you all watched that you enjoyed from Netflix ? We have watched a number of the "Globe Trekker Series" some have been good others Yikes! We also started the "Modern Marvels Series", We watched "Sugar" to tie in to the food topic, that one was informative & interesting I thought. I hope to get a few more from that series. Well I am off to try and pick a few dvd's - How about the "Donner Party Journey"? Nawwww, Just joking that would just put my poor teenager into more of a depressive state.
Have a GREAT day!!!!

A Quick Feb. Wrap Up

Feb. days are just flying by... Kelly turned 16 on the 19th. I had made her a cake and my son came over. She got a parakeet... like we need another animal but that is what she wanted (we had a cage from freescycle). Her brother gave her his x-box 360 & some games which she loved. My daughter-in-law (who had to work and missed the get together) gave her a scull bracelet that Kelly had mentioned that she loved at the mall. My in-laws gave her money & so did my cousin so she used that money to buy Sims 3 for the x-box - She LOVES that game! I took a couple of pictures but Kelly said they came out bad and won't up-load them for me : (

Today is my anniversary, We have been married 26 years!!! Oh My Gosh!!! I can't belive it has been that long. There has been alot more rocky then good days but it is what it is....

Our prayers were answered today!!!! One of my husbands old bosses called him to come back to work to paint 9 houses. It might not be permanent but at least it is something, Who knows they might keep him on. I can not tell you what a load off of my shoulders this is... I was able to breath today for the first time in a long time : )

My in-laws stopped over yesterday and told us that my husbands father has been diagnosed with the start of alzhemer's. The man is like 80 years old, I would think most people of that age bracket start to show signs of alzhemer's... he now has to take medicine that costs $400 a month (not covered by his insurance). Some times I think doctors just tell these older patients things to keep them coming back.....

Now that my husband is out of the house we can finally get back to school work!!!! It has been so hard & distracting with him home, it just threw a monkey wrench in our school day.

Super Bowl Sunday!

Kelly dyed her hair! Yes, This picture is of my almost 16 year old daughter! She wants it blonder in color but right now it is more of a strawberry blonde. I just sit back and remember when my baby girl was just a tiny little thing and then you blink your eyes and they just keep getting older & older.... : (
Things are still pretty much on the scary side of not knowing what will be happening in the near future. My husband got his last unemployment check last week so there will be no more money coming in from that. He still has no leads at all on a job. The really tough part is that he is in such a depressed mood that I don't think he is really seeing how desperate things are getting. Once we run out of the unemployment money then what.... I am just praying each day that things will turn for the better. It is funny how I would never have thought in a million years that we would be in such a situation. At this time of our life (my husband is turning 50 March 1st. & I am 47) we should be just coasting and enjoying what life has to offer. I have to look at it as just another challenge we will need to get over and with Gods help I am sure we will : )
Hope everyone has a wonderful Super Bowl Sunday!!
