OK, so I'm not here much anymore. I don't have a lot of time at home (16-month-olds will do that), and for some reason I do not have a text box at work. Weird. I have the shoutbox - which won't post - and I can send a message to runawaybunny, but... So I read, but I don't reply! Let's see. Belle is in prison, that's over in SA. Pat is turning into a typical teen... Dunno what to do with that! His grades are even coming up. Hmm. Nothing really to report there, as it's all NT! Except his forgetfulness, which never changes... Makes me want to throttle him regularly, but I know it's not intentional. And Rose - OMG. Growing like a weed, smart, headstrong. Newest words are "dote", "doose" and "dello" - don't, juice and jello - and she's a mockingbird. Last Friday, trying to get home in sleet and snow and yucky nasty stuff, some idjit did something and I called him a name. And she promptly repeated, "Ath-oh! Ath-oh!" Oops. Gotta watch that sailor's mouth of mine. husband got a 3-month job starting Monday. Doesn't pay great, but something is better than nothing! Phew.
