first week at my new job. I am very tired though. I have only been working 4 days a week for so long except occasionally working five but even then it was usually my choice to do so. I am so thankful though that now I will be able to get caught up on bills and stuff. More good news is that difficult child and the staff member have settled there differences. He was doing good until Sunday when apparently he was being a typical difficult child . He should be able to start earning his privileges back so that will help keep him out of trouble (fingers crossed) easy child is texting me when she goes out of town like I asked her to do before but she wouldn't. Now she texts me when she leaves and when she arrives at her destination. difficult child is officially a COLLEGE student. His classes are paid for and he starts on Monday. I have my house back from sharing with my family. 2011 has started off on the right foot. Here's to making it a great year!
