Well another day another dollar...that's about how I'm starting to feel. I still am liking the job, but it was a stressful week. I can't remember if I mentioned that the first girl that they hired quit after one day, but yes that happened early last week. So a new girl started last Friday and by Monday afternoon she was "let go" of....and I'll just leave it at that. Well another girl is starting monday. But we all feel hopeful about this one. Third times the charm- hopefully in this case!

This was the last week of school for the kids. It kind of jumped up on me, and I wasn't prepared! They had a playday at Greenlawn, and then at Sunset Madi's class went to Chuck E. Cheese for lunch on Thursday. I went with them for that. It was pretty fun.

We are dogsitting. His name is Tucker and he is a BIG black lab. We usually dog sit his brother, Tyson, who is a BIG chocholate lab. I'm not sure how we ended up Tucker, but the two dogs can't be together. Which is wierd to me, b/c they're together when they're at home, but I guess they misbehave when they're parents are out of town. One time the two of them stayed here, and I thought I was going to have to call animal control. They're very aggresive dogs towards each other and they were raring up on their hind legs and fighting in the back yard. It freaked me out. I mention all this, b/c Tucker is in the backyard and he won't shut up!!!!!! I hate barking dogs.

Well, dare I say what movie I just finished watching???? Brokeback Mountain...I hope you're still my friend. My dad about had a cow when I said I wanted to see it. I just wanted to see what all the fuss was about and see if it was worth it. I will say it was sad. It took a very unexpected twist, that caught me by surprise. It was a good movie...regardless of what your beliefs are. The thing that bugs me about all the criticism that it got was that soooo many people were like, "oh my goodness I'm boycotting, and I can't believe that such a movie like that would come out...blah blah blah" well if we're really going to be christian, then lets not watch ANY unchristian movie, or t.v. show and watch your mouth, and put out that cigarette right now! I am not a fan of Hollywood and it's politics, I didn't want Brokeback Mountain to win best picture, b/c then it was like Hollywood kind of won, but I don't think it's fair to pick and choose what you want to like and not like, just because your not comfortable with the subject! Take a stand for what you believe in, ABSOLUTELY, but don't be hypocritical.

Okay I'm off my soapbox now. Other than that not a whole lot is going on. ECI (Early Childhood Intervention) is coming to our house on Wednesday to do an assessment with Kyle. They'll take his measurements, talk to him and then we'll go from there. I am ready to get the ball rolling with this thing. I want to know what to do, how to help, etc.

Well I'm going to go for now...have a great weekend!
