Well I really feel down in the dumps today. I don't know why but I just do. I would love to yell or cry or sleep or something. It has nothing to do with the boys or my husband. It is just the fact that economy is bad, budget is bad, and money is very low!!

Well today was a bust for doing the things I said I would I am still working on how to tackle the things I want to accomplish. Today I mainly rested. I read a book that I have had for a long time, I caught up on stuff I had DVR , and I cleaned on the house some. I have not been worth a lot today. I did get Clay to make kool-aid today. He did a good job with it. We went outside and watched his daddy mow the yard. Clay loves to do this. But for most part Clay and I have not done very much. I might just keep working on the things I want to do and really enforce them when we get back from the beach. Seth has done his thing today too. Days like today I feel like it is summer and why do I want to push my kids? What do I really want from them? For most part they do what they are told with an exception of a meltdown here and there with Clay. I will figure this out and it will be a great summer and I will get things accomplished. I am just slow at getting started. But I could look at it like this. I did say I was going to read several books that I have been wanting to read. I did this today. I worked my flowers some and I wanted to do more yard work. LOL oh well I will stop here. I might go take a walk on my treadmill. I really needs some exercise today.

Tomorrow will official start our summer break. The boys have already been out of school for 3 days now. I am working out in my mind on the goals that I want to accomplish with both boys this summer. I want to get my youngest which is 15 to be more independent. I want him to be able to get up and get dressed, learn to open and fix himself a can of soup with crackers. I want him to be able to communicate his wants in an appropriate way. I want to keep my older son 18 on his writing and to get him able to spell simple words. I am still thinking what I think they will need to be more independent and prepared for the next school year. Wish me luck.
