I wish I was here

I wish I was at the beach somewhere, kicked back and relaxing. To me there is no better place to be, with the warm sun and the sound of waves slapping the hot sands of a beach.

I haven't written in awhile because I have been working on other things but now I should be able to keep up with writing better.

Today is my kids last day of school for a week. Next week school is out for intercession. Normally every year the kids get 2 weeks for vacation. This year the school decided to split up those weeks so they added a week off in February.

I don't think my son will be enjoying it because he is failing one subject in school and missing assignmants in all the rest. For some reason, he has decided he doesn't need to do or turn in school work, thus his grades are now scraping the bottom of the failing barrel.

Tonight, my daughter might be going to her first dance. The Valentine's Jag Jam. That is going to depend on what time my husband gets home from work. The school requires that she is escorted by a parent so that will be me. lol. That should be a lot of fun.

We recently discovered that our truck doesn't have a blown engiine as we were told by the mechanics we orgianlly had the truck looked over by. Instead of having to pay for a whole new engine, we had the truck towed back to our house and it has been sitting in the driveway ever since. A friend of ours came over and looked at the truck a discovered the the headgasket may be cracked or the cylinder. Anyway, we are waiting to find out when it can be fixed and how much it will cost. I hate having only one vehicle now.

Today, we have updated Poppy's Scroll Saw Woodwork Blog. There is an interview there with Poppy about his interests, how he became involved with scroll saw woodwork, and what his favorite pieces are that he has done. Check out the blog for all the details.
