"Hey Mrs. Miller, What Up?!"

Last week I picked Jude up from school one day.  Most of the kids in his class know me because I volunteer at the library once a week.  I did last year too.  There is this one little girl who is hysterical.  The last time I saw her she said, "Mrs. Miller you haven't been here in FOR-EVER".  I had missed one week due to my work schedule.  LOL.  FOR-EVER.  So, I go to pick Jude up on Friday.  I walked past her Mom's van.  She said, "Hey Mrs. Miller, What Up!?"   She's in first grade.

Life is just a full of stuff as always.  Jake's schedule is changing as of today.  He will be working the 12:30 - 9:00 shift.  It is only temporary, until the end of July.  It isn't ideal but it is going to work out okay.  We've worked opposite shifts in the past.  And it will be nice that the kids aren't with the babysitter so much.  Not that there is anything wrong with the babysitter.  It is just better for them to with one of us.  And maybe we can get a few things done around the house.

Work is very busy.  I have been working A LOT.  Our agency did get a new contract with Children's Services for a different program.  That is good news.  I don't think it really effects me but it is good for the agency. 

I am so happy the warm weather is here.  I have been pulling weeds, thinning and rearranging my flower beds.  I really enjoy that.  I planted peas, lettuce, radishes and carrots a month ago and they are doing well.  I also have some volunteer plants.  I am not sure what type of squash is growing but something is spouting up.  And I have a few green beans growing.  Somehow they have survivied the frost we've had.  I am planning a few days off mid May to spend in the garden. 

I know it isn't anything exciting but at least it is an update....

Oh, one last thing - GO CAVS!!!
