I never posted my 08 goals–

December 30, 2008

So thought I’d post here. I will then look over them over the next week and make up my 09 goals. I don’t even expect to reach some of these, it’s just good to have them all written down to have an awareness of them.

2008 GOALS (the year that will be over TOMORROW! wow)

HOMEWORK
• Every few weeks check Colleen’s progress on web site and follow through with teachers on items needed to be made up.
• Boys – try and get them to write their names, and spell extra, 1-2 times a week. Find computer games for them to play. Try and help Chris focus on academics a few times a week and show Doreen how to do it too.

8 hours today with Ryan – he is really enjoying her! They were coloring outside while Rog grilled us yummy chicken, burgers, and hot dogs. Chris enjoyed a lot of time outside too and had two walks and an outing to the playground. Ryan also played at the playground for about two hours with his aide.

I cleaned half of Ryan’s room today and D helped me do the dishes. She’ll be back tomorrow!

Chris’s aide should be back in 2-3 days… D likes to help Chris a lot too – she’s a sweet new friend!

All of the sudden all the leaves are gone. It seemed like a day or so ago we still had tons of leaves on the trees. Now Rog has to leaf-blow for hours!

I found this really funny for some reason:

Severe Weather Alert
TWC Message

945 PM EST FRI NOV 23 2007

THE LATEST SNOWFALL REPORTS FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN CLEVELAND, OH: EDINBORO, 3.0″… MADISON 5 S, 2.0″… MILLCREEK TWP., 1.3″… YNG AIRPORT, 0.9″… CLE AIRPORT, 0.5″… CAMBRIDGE SPGS, 0.5″… ERIE AIRPORT, 0.5″… NORWALK, 0.2″… ERIE, 0.1″. STAY TUNED TO THE WEATHER CHANNEL OR GO TO WEATHER.COM FOR FURTHER UPDATES ON THIS WINTER WEATHER EVENT.

This popped up as “severe weather for ….” on my tool bar from TWC. Does this sound like Severe Weather to ANYBODY? It’s November 23rd in Ohio. A little snow. Not unusual.

Sheesh! I thought we had a blizzard coming or some warning about melting snow and a flood or something.

Ryan remembers Christmas…

November 18, 2007

We were up early (as always) before dawn. After the sun came up, Ryan was sitting with me. I hadn’t noticed it, but he said “Look at the snow!”

I looked outside and the grass was all covered with about 1/2″ of snow. Then he looked at me and said “Ho Ho Ho.”

Fun menu outing AND video camera!

November 17, 2007

Broke in the digital camera, early Christmas present for us.

Here’s a start:

Going to Erie from Dori H on Vimeo.

And by the way when I said “Open the door” I didn’t mean the car– I can see that would possibly be assumed from my statement

All videos here – and I’m sure this is the site I’ll stick with as they loaded fairly easily (not true at my old photobucket account, not sure why…)

First time I’d taken Ryan up to the lakefront in a few years. He did great! We were only there about 15 minutes — had tons to do at home and also had a headache. But he loved playing on the playground and then we walked on the sand for about 5 minutes.

What a beautiful cooler day today! I don’t think often enough either that we’re very lucky to live 10 minutes from the lakeshore…

I’m dreaming of a white Easter…

Zoo and new car

Zoo 010

My blog revision site for some reason is not working, so I’m just reposting this. We went to zoo yesterday – pictures are here — this is Colleen (bottom) and her friends that were in our group. We had a blast – a COLD BLAST! If you click back a few pages in the pictures – you’ll see us in shirt sleeves in the back yard – yes, it was almost 80 degrees Tuesday night. Chris went running to the school yard that night and laid DOWN in the grass and looked at the stars. Had a BALL – took an hour to get him home – bribed with bubble bath 🙂
