Yesterday my oldest son had a football game. Unfortunately it was an away game and an hour from home. It was not possible for me to go. Well when I picked him up and asked the score he told me 34-6 they lost but he scored the only 6 points for the team. Mind you he plays safety (well now they are going to put him as a linebacker most likely outside) and like I have probably said before isn't the best guy on the field. But the other team fumbled right in front of him and he grabbed the ball and ran. I was so happy for him and he was so happy himself. I only wish I would have been there for his first career touchdown....hence why I really do feel like crying.

Well, still fighting the cold germs here. The baby ended up having a sinus infection and is on antibiotics. I am still fighting the stuffy nose issue and slight cough. I probably have a sinus infection too but will suffer through it as I just can't afford the doctor and meds right now.
As for my blog title today, I am planning on quitting smoking. Yay me! After almost 20 years of it I am done. Orginally my quit date was Nov 15th but a friend is also quitting and is doing it Oct 1st so I may join forces with her and quit then. My work is paying for the patch too so that is great! Keep your fingers crossed for me that I can quit the first time around.
Other than that it's the same old here....but here are a few pics from my daughters 17th birthday party this past weekend.
The birthday gal
Noah just being cute
Maddie being a "gangster" they tell me.
ah my 4 month old nephew eating his ice cream cake....his mom was none too happy with his dad for this. but the kid loved it!

Ah the start of school always seems to bring the start of the colds and illnesses! 3 out of the 5 kiddos have a cold and I think I am starting with it now. At least the weather has broke and fallish temperatures are here. One thing I cannot stand is to have a cold in the summer heat!
I wish I had my camera right with me, I am sitting outside on my porch and my chipmunk friend is here with me. This chipmunk has no fear of me whatsoever. He comes right up on the porch and literally has run across my feet already. The first time he did it, I think I screamed but I am used to it now. Not everyday a chipmunk runs over your feet.
My oldest boy has a football game today so this afternoon we will be heading out for that. Hopefully he has a good game. The boy's heart is in the right place but he just isn't the most athletic kid in the world. He tries though and has never given up. This year he is being played more so hopefully he will become better.
Well, I am off to try and catch a few zzzz's while the little guy is snoozing. I just don't feel up to par and maybe a siesta would do me good.

Ok so I don't go to school but let me tell you I would rather that right now than the absurdness of our high school. Yeah the one we spent 24 million they claim remodeling the place. Ok I am sure some of the money went to all the new grass that was laid and the renovations to the fields. BUT my daughter comes home today and during our talk she informs me that they have no library at school...What the heck is that about?? I am hoping that they just don't have it finished yet....oh and that she has to buy a book this weekend....what? Oh well they are doing a theme or something in class and they need to buy a book. But only 2 people are allowed to be doing the same book. So the class asks what if 5 people come in with the same book Monday. The teacher's response (mind you already I dislike this teacher for making me buy a book, I mean come on we just bought school supplies, clothes, shoes etc and don't forget the 120 calculator they need too and now they want me to buy a book!) well he said "keep your reciepts" um hello isn't it easier to make a list and each kid write the book they plan to buy on it? Sure waste my time and gas running around buying a book that I may possibly have to return 2 days later? Needless to say I am not happy with "school" right now.
