I am making a serious effort to not get stressed out about things at work. It is hard for me but I am really trying. They just don't pay me enough to give myself an ulcer people. Things still are stressful but I am trying very hard to step back and not worry about them.
Things at home are going well. We are all for the most part settling into a routine of sorts. Terrell loves school and is hyped up about learning how to read. The librarian came into his classroom and read them a short story called Christmas in the big woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. He comes home telling me about it so of course I had to pull out my collection of her books. We have started reading the first one together. It gives me a special thrill to read it with him as it was one of my favorite books growing up. It is a memory I will cherish and I hope he does too. He has been doing great on his first few spelling tests and he makes me proud everyday.
Jayden is just Jayden, the little spawn child. He is into everything but is so cute you can't stay mad. Like today when he spilled my ice coffee and was trying to clean it up with a tiny little paper towel, how freaking cute. He got new sneakers yesterday, light up ones and it is funny to watch him busily looking at his feet watching for the lights. What the hell was I thinking when I bought those?
We have a new family pet too. Tony still will not agree to a dog so we bought a Gerbil. Technically she is Terrell's but he is willing to share a bit. He has named her Sweety and she is really cute. I just wish her little plastic wheel was quieter at night.
