Well this run of classes is over. I hope that everyone passed. I really enjoyed it. I am still not very good with the whole writing thing but hopefully in time. I did make two awesome meals this week for the holidays. Sunday I made a bacon cheeseburger meatloaf, cheesy potatoes, corn, and green beans. Then on Monday I made cheesecake filled pancakes with warm strawberry and blueberry syrup. YUM-O!!!

Okay so this set of classes is almost over. Yay!!!!! I really enjoyed them and I believe I might actually continue to write in my blog. I am not sure yet. Well, graduation went well. However, they were supposed to announce that our son got a full 4 year scholarship to Martim Methodist College but that did not happen. I guess that really does not matter. We had so many people at our house Thursday it was insane. Then as we are getting ready to load up in the cars it starts pouring down the rain. Luckily the graduation was inside. My mom decided to stay until today. This meant that again I got behind on everything. Homework, housework, me time but all is well. I am finally getting caught up. I am going to keep this one short because I am worn out. Good night!

I am so far behind this week and it is driving me bananas. Our oldest son, who is 18, is graduating high school this week. That means a have a boatload of people coming over. My husband and I just bought a house, which half the family has never seen before, and we are doing our spring cleaning before everyone gets here. So for the past two days I have been spending my down time steam sleaning our carpets. Oh yes what fun I have! Admit it you are jealous of all my fun. Now that my house is clean I get to catch up on my homework. Tomorrow my in laws are coming into town and they will be with us until Friday. I have to start getting stuff ready for our cookout Thursday. Plus, we a special feature entertainer coming to our club this weekend. I pray that I make it through the weekend with all my hair!

This week I have to tell you about my wonderful 2 year old boy again. Just a couple days ago I took my son upstairs for his nap. I laid him down, changed his diaper, gave him his drinnk and started his cartoon. He fussed for a little bit but eventually he calmed down. At least I thought he did. I told my 16 year old daughter to go check on him just to make sure. She came back downstairs laughing like crazy. " you have got to look at your son", she said. This is never a good thing. My wonderful, beautiful, innocent two year old had taken his diaper off. Can you see where this is going? Yes, he pooped. Not only did he poop but he all decided to paint my walls with it. That is why I believe that mother's should not get just one day. We should get the weekend. My weekend everyone was gone for the most part. My toddler was her and my husband was too. He doesn't count because he was asleep most of the time. I did have a great Mother's Day dinner even though I made it. I love my family though.

Okay, this weekend Tennessee got flooded. Guess where I live.... Tennessee! Well we got extremely lucky compared to most people. We did have a little river running through our yard for a little bit but it could be a lot worse. My mom's yard had become a small pond, my dad's work has four feet of water in it. The road they live on is right next to the river. My dad and sister are absolutly crazy because they actually went out in the crap. My sister went to town and back just fine. My dad tried to go a different way and got the van stuck. He had to call 911 and everything. He is okay but the van isn't. I know I am not supossed to laugh but I cannot help it. He always used to make fun of me for doing STUPID things well guess what pops you do it too. HAHA! I wouldn't joke about it but you know how parents always give us a hard time about stuff. So, I think it is only fair that I return the favor. Thank god we are all safe. Maybe they will learn that if there is water over the road you really shouldn't drive through it. DUH!

Okay, this is unusual. I do not have any stories this week. I cannot believe it. I usually can come up with some story about some of the wall things that my kids do but I have absolutely nothing. Well, I guess the week is not over yet I still have tomorrow! I guess this week I can just tell you what I am making for Sunday dinner. I haven't decided between a bbq meatloaf or a bacon cheeseburger meatloaf. Any suggestions? I will probably make some loaded baked potatoes, green beans, corn and rolls. Sometimes we have a big crowd on Sunday; but, if not, the ones who do show up can put the food away. LOL! You have to love family and Sunday dinners.

Last night my step-son told me that he had left half of his clothes at his mom's house. Now, he came back Sunday and I have told him everyday this week to get his stuff put away. He spent an hour last night trying to find something to wear. Finally just a few minutes before ten he found something that would work. Then he brought me a pair of jeans and asked if I could wash them. I said sure no problem I will try and get them done. I am a night owl. I do stay up sort of late because it is easier to get my cleaning and schoolwork done after everybody goes to bed. Well, I put his pants in the dryer before I went to bed and for some reason they did not get dry. I get to bed around 1, I get woke up at 3 when my husband gets home, I get up at 5:45 to wake the kids up, after that I lay back down until my 2 year old gets up and at 7 they get taken to school. Now, at about 6:30 my step son, who is 18 years old and a senior in high school, comes up and tells me that his pants are not dry. The only thing I can say is and? After school I asked him why he felt the need to wake me up to tell me his pants were wet. He said well you said that you would get them done and I wanted to let you know that you didn't. What exactly was I supposed to do about a pair of wet pants 30 minutes before he had to leave for school that he couldn't do hisself? Yes, he knows how to run the dryer.
