is moving by so quickly!  We are still hanging in here, barely.  I mentioned awhile ago that my husband was being laid off from work.  Well about 6 or 7 weeks ago he got laid off, sat at home for 3 weeks, got to work for 2 weeks, sent back home for 2 more weeks, worked for 4 days, then worked 4 days again... now he's back at the house.  Not all the bills are able to be paid, there are a lot of fun things that we'd like to do with our friends but aren't able to.... this part of life most certainly sucks.  I will try and remain positive and keep telling myself that "this too shall pass".

I had a test last week for school, it was not pretty.  I did not pass but luckily it did not bring my grade down to a failing I'm still passing the class but I'm just barely hanging on!  I've got another 2 weeks of the course left so lets keep our fingers (and toes!) crossed that I can pull it together and pass!

Logan - is still absolutely rocking it in soccer!  He makes me so proud!  School is going good for him but his teacher is a tough one!  She sends lots of homework home, lots of additional projects, it's exhausting!  Maybe it's just because I'm in school too but between having his homework, my homework, soccer practice, church after school program, 1-evening visit with his dad.... my Lord I'm pretty sure I never just get to hang out with the kid!  Thankfully his soccer coach finally lowered practices to only once a week instead of twice, that starts next week so I hope that will make our lives a little easier!

Riley - my little man turned 2 today!  It's hard for me to believe that he's so big already!  We had a birthday party for him today at our house, grilled some burgers and brats, chips, fantastic pasta salads, and yummy cupcakes!  I've got lots of pics to share but I'm gonna wait until I have some more energy to share them.

Busy week again for me, December can't get here soon enough!  Hope everyone has a great week!

I'm so sorry about your husband's job! My husband I went through this for almost a year before he finally took a lay-off. The working on again, off again was so difficult! It was a long year, but now he is working full-time and life is a lot easier, so this too shall pass!

Oh man! Unemployment is THE WORST!

Sorry lady! I'll keep my fingers crossed for good news for you and your family! Good luck with school. I admire you're going with so much going on at home, I don't know I could do it!
