Busy life

Well I have been busy. Too busy but it has been a good busy.

Horse Girl has really taken off with her reading. She is only a year behind right now. She is more advanced in math then we thought she surprised her teachers in being able to to do algebra. Her speech causes people to figure that she doesn't understand things. This test she took on the computer proved otherwise. So things have been good with her.

History Girl hit some speed bumps at the beginning of the school year and it caused us to really pin her down to get her work done and she now is doing a lot better. She got placed in Advanced Math this year and she has been holding her own which pleases me.

We had Thanksgiving yesterday and there were 13 people in our small house, but it was nice to be able to together. I have been working at a charitable toy fund again this year and it really makes me thankful that my family is doing as well as it is doing. Fly Guy had a couple deaths in him family this year, but even with that we are doing least compared to many people in these crazy times. I am thankful for such a great husband, a loving, but crazy family and awesome friends especially the August Moms who listen to me and help me when needed.

For me the next 20+ days will be all out reading stories about how hard this year is for people finacally. It is hard reading it day after day 50 - 100 stories a day. If you want to check out this song by Johnny Cash. It is a song version of some of the stories I read every day. Hmmm....let's see a depressive personality, reading depressing stories during a season a lot of people fall into a deep depression....doesn't sound like a good combo. The fact I help get toys to well over 7000 kids every year is the only thing that keeps me going some days between October and December.

So I might not post again until the new year. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyful Kwanzaa and Festive Yule and good whatever other holiday I am forgetting.
