I know it’s been a while since I last posted, but we have been so busy with so many different things.
As previously mentioned, Mom #2’s former employer stiffed her on her paycheck, so we have been in quite the financial bind. Well, it has been a well kept secret that this is the third job in a row we have taken and been stiffed on the pay. This is NOT GOOD. I don’t know if we have an invisible ink tattoo on us that says “We Work For Free” or what, but we’ve been very unlucky with work lately.
Anyway, after many days and nights of praying, weeping, and gnashing of teeth, we appear to be heading into the light. After a little “financial rodeo” we have wrangled together enough money for this month’s bills and a tentative plan to get next month lived through…this is not ideal…but it’s ok for now. Frankly, this is better than I have felt in a while and I’ll take it!
Baby Boy was supposed to complete his phase testing at tae kwon do this past weekend, but we had a little minor health emergency and he wasn’t able to complete the entire series of tests. We had to miss classes all this week, and it looks like we’ll be missing classes again all next week as well, so I’m not exactly sure when he will finish his testing, but he will. He loves tae kwon do, and he is getting very good at it. The phase testing will move him from the beginner program to the intermediate program. Here are some photos of what he was able to complete.
Speaking of Baby Boy, he is going to have a little minor surgery on Monday, and I’m not sure how long he’ll be “down for the count.” We’re hoping it’ll be a quick recovery, but the truth is that you just never know. Baby Boy has a way of being the extreme case of everything. He’s tough as nails though, that’s the one thing I can say whole heartedly.
School has gone great these past few weeks. We’ve been getting things done on a fairly regular basis. Report cards (yes, we do grades) came out last week and with the exception of a B+ in math, we’re all A’s in this household. I’m ecstatic! Baby Boy is very bright when he applies himself.
We have lots of things on the horizon; I’ll try to post more often, so I don’t have to “gloss over” everything.
