I everyone, its been along while since I have been able to get on. difficult child 1 went to physic hospital in june stayed a week. Has been doing a lot better, the reason he went was that he tried to jump out of the school van cause he didnt want to go to school. He still has some problems but we are working through it. So far so good, He is going to an alternative school that is an hour away, the first week was pretty good but this week he has been in trouble. I am just hoping that once he settles in it will be better difficult child 2 now she is another story,she is defient and we have put her on Depakote er, she has been on it for just a week so time will tell, every morning is a battle with her. Im at my wits end with her, I have tried every thing and nothing works. easy child started kindergarten this year, he is doing good no problems in the morning but he is defient again I think its monkey see monkey do. I had a rough summer but I did survive. husband has had several mild heart attacks, but so far he is back to normal. He has to have surgery on his neck and spine sometime this month, waiting on doctor to schedule it. We started our on business and so far doing decent. Only time will tell. As for me I found out that the cartlidge in my right ankle, I have to wear a brace the rest of my life. I also have the diabetic disease that causes your feet and leg to be amputated. I have accepted that within the next 10 years it will happen. We have 7 new puppies, they are chirats half chihuahua and half rat terrier. We sold our trailer in lone oak, and our house in denison and bought a house and 25 acres. I just love it here, at least something is happening. Well that is whats been going on her.
