Not seeing the morning thread yet so thought I would start it. Yesterday was a beautiful day!!! Perfect for our town's summer festival and parade. Not too hot, not too cold - just right for watching and being in the parade. Now onto Vacation Bible Study this week where I am in charge of light meals before the program and the snack station during the program. difficult child is doing great! He made the 8th grade Honor Roll this Spring, is diligently keeping the lawn mowed without being asked, working on improving the area around our fire pit, has planted my flower garden, and is looking forward to helping Diva's goddaughter during VBS. Diva is doing great! She has moved from one apartment to another, is still planning on getting married August of 2012, is looking for a job in the town she goes to school in (no more worry about her driving on bad roads in bad weather to get to her minimum paying job once or twice a month this coming winter), and has taken diva puppy to live with her. husband and I just received our layoff notices in the event of our State's governement shutdown. I am stressing that the shutdown could interferre in a vacation plan I made the 2nd week in July. If we are to return to work while I am on vacation, am I suppose to report back or will my supervisor allow me to have someone else do that 1st day's task? It is difficult child's bowling camp which is a day camp. We are staying with relatives who are unable to take time from work to get him to the 2 hour camp everyday so I do need to do it. Congress may still agree on a budget but it is not looking good. Hope everyone has a GREAT day!
