I’m a Failure (but I’m trying)

So, I had planned to blog daily in June. And May. And April. Yeah, I haven’t succeeded at that at all. Work has been crazy. For a while, we were down a cashier and a dishwasher. Now, We’re not down anyone!! My daughter was hired on as the cashier, and a sweetheart was hired for the dishwasher. Both of them are doing pretty good. They both finished off their first week today. I’m ready to see how that all works out!

Life has been pretty hectic too. Madison graduated from high school in May. She then proceeded to turn 18 this month (on the 20th, aka Father’s Day). Monday, she started her first ever job, as I mentioned above. First everything. First job. First interview. First drug test. First (and second) TB test.First orientation. First FULL-TIME job! This kid is rocking this adult life already!
Ethan turned 16 in March and did driver’s ed this summer. He just has to do the driving part with the DMV folks next month, and he’s good to go. So glad that’s one less thing that we have to worry about.

In March, I’d bought a new computer. That got zapped within 60 days, and the return policy for Sam’s is 90 days, so we took advantage of that. So, I have another new computer that still doesn’t have all the apps and programs installed. Oh well.

Right now I’m updating from a Kindle Fire and a Bluetooth keyboard. I guess I won’t be able to make any excuses when it comes to getting things done. I’m hoping, since Office is now available on them that I’ll be able to use it for NaNoWriMo this year, since my laptop isn’t lasting, battery-wise.

Scrapbooking!

OH MY GOD! I’ve scrapbooked :O I really love digital scrapbooking, and I’m hoping, in December, that I can get more active, back into it! I’ve missed it.

In case you didn’t notice, even the header has changed! :O I figured the theme fit with it, and I went with it!


Kit: Winter Magic: December Monthly Mix
This was, as you can tell, created for my header. There was no template used.
Pics (from left to right): Snapchat Selfie, Bitmoji selfie (it’s changed but I didn’t have one saved), a planner shot, Ethan (with his quarantine mullet haircut), Josh (giving me his usual face), Madison (the day we brought our puppy, Kira home), Binx (our kitten, all proud of himself for getting on the router), and Kira (our Huskytriever, whom we adopted on Veteran’s Day)

Quick Update

Things are going okay here. Kids don’t have school for the rest of the school year. At least not in-school school. The district is working on the online aspect. This is good, because if they can figure this out now, they’ll be able to figure it out later when it comes to snow days. Then they won’t have to add extra days anymore. Maybe?
