Today has been a little overwhelming for me! Jeremy started out by going to the dentist to get fitted for a mouth piece. He has been waking up with headaches and so we thought it might be from his grinding his teeth while he sleeps. Well, at the dentist they told him he has a bad case of sleep apnea and TMJ pain. Anyone who knows me knows that I don't know anything about medical stuff, so I just said ok what do we need to do to cure these things. Jeremy said they told him he needs to go see a specialist. He said sleep apnea could lead to many other things also. Goodness. Also the other day he went into a doctor and they told him he has colitis. WOW! He is filled with bad news. Oh and may I remind you all that we have no health insurance. So the last couple of days I been trying to keep myself busy so I don't sit and think about what's happening and get all stressed out about it.
About a week ago Jeremy was told about a job opening at the school, in a department he has worked in before. So that could be just the answer to our prayers. Not necessarily for the extra income (that would be an added bonus) but for the health insurance. I am so excited about it and I want him to take it but he is having a hard time grasping the idea...until after today. I think it hit him that he really needs some kind of health coverage, and this is our chance to get it. So he may be working this school year. I'll keep you posted on that one.

Which brings me to the next bit of excitement. School starts in 12 days. Yes, I am counting down. I'm ready for some quiet time. :) I will have 3 kids in school and 2 kids at home. This is going to be so easy...2 kids. What a breeze. :) I can't believe they are growing up so fast though. I have a 3rd grader, a 1st grader and a kindergartener. WOW! I am getting old.

Summer has been full of some crazy days! We have gotten a lot of little projects around the house done. We didn't get to go on a family trip this summer, but we still had a lot of fun times together. The best is watching the kids pull weeds in the garden. Those kids are definately Jeremy's kids...LOL! They are all complaining it's hot out here. I'm getting dirty. I'm thirsty. I need to go potty. When is the corn going to be ready? Are we almost done? Can we get icees? Really?! Papa started that tradition. Whoever helps pull weeds at the garden gets to get an icee when we're all done working. Good one Papa! ;)

My grandparents spent a day at my parents' house. It was a lot of fun to have them. We had some good food and lots of stories. I learned a little about my grandparents that day. They told stories and I found out some more about my parents when they were younger too. I really enjoy the day!

Jeremy's best friend Brad ("THE Brad"...where Bradley got his name) came to visit us a few times. He lives in Oklahoma, so we don't see him much. It's been so nice to see him more lately. Him and Jeremy tell stories about when they were kids. I love seeing Jeremy so happy when he is with Brad. Even better news, Brad might be moving back to the area. We are super stoked! I had to post a pic of the Bradleys together. :)
