1 week to go.

One week from today ( it is Friday now) will be one of the hardest days in a parent's life. Dropping a child off for the first time at college. At least we don't have to put him on a plane, alone to fly to the other side of the country. How do you get the mini fridge there? But that is a different problem. Now as a family that has a little autism in the house this is gonna be a MAJOR change. Our first diagnosed Peter (HFA) has attached to Kevin and will be the one that notices the change the most. Remember Kevin made the dinner last night? Well Peter saw what he was doing and asked Kevin what he was doing, & he was told that he was cooking dinner on the grill and Peter said "oh you are a Dad now". Well that is the kind of wisdom that Peter is known too come out with allot.
But back to the issue at hand,my son is off to college in 1 week and we are soooo not ready. Fortunately we have friends & family near by so we have that going for us! Well the DVR is calling and the ball game is on so good night.

August 2010

Well here I am keeping the semi-annual blog going... been so long I forgot my password. Well seems I have got that figured out. Since my last post 15 months ago I am the happy owner of an Ipod Touch, keeping me sane at work, really, really, really would like an Ipad, but as my Gram would say " if wishes were horses, beggars would ride". All too true, but isn't is sooooo pretty.
I am now on 2nd shift 3 to 11:30 so during baseball season I am getting great use out of my DVR s don't tell me who won! 2nd shift has some other complications that have come up, like who is making what for dinner. Most days I am able to get dinner started before I leave for work, today though I had our oldest son Kevin make the entire dinner. A nice London Broil cut cooked o the grill, his first, he stared the charcoal, prepped the "steak" and cooked it, although with a couple of texts from me. He also make a side dish and dinner was on the table at 6:05. Yum!
Well ballgame is on, need to pay a little more attention to it. See you all soon
