Derby day in Central Florida

Well today was derby day and I just didn't feel like taking any pictures.....Bad mama.
I was just to tired!!!
Dylan didn't get any first places so it was a wasted day in my opinion!!! Trina helped her friend by knocking out the competition so Allison could get the 2 1st places she needs!! Way to go Katrina!!!!
School has been tough for all of us. It is so hard to get back into the swing of things after the holidays. It was tough for us....our first Christmas without my mom. But we are muddling our way through it. Trina will never be happy with what ever we's just her personality.
Dylan will never like writing and spelling. I have tried so many fun ways. It's too bad we have to learn stuff we don't excel at or like.
We are alive, doing okay. I haven't even had a chance to check on all my friends blog. One of these nights, I will stay up late and try to do that.
I hope everyone is doing ok!!

Happy New Year

I am hoping everyone had a wonderful Christmas!! From the blog's I visit, it seems everyone did.
Poor FatcatPaulanna has had the flu at her home.
I hope they recover quickly. I don't miss that at all. We have been lucky and since we quit private school have never had to deal with it.
This year was so tough on me losing my best friend, my mom. Christmas was tough. She alsways helped me wrap gifts and we would laugh and get excited. I know that it is my selfish part that is missing her and I need to let go and move on. It is so hard, I talked to her at least 3 times a day and she was my helper with keeping Trina on track. I know she is so happy in heaven and not in any pain, but (Me being selfish again) I MISS HER!!!!!
We spoiled the kdis too much this year. I say every year that i will not do this again. But every year I do. I will try and post pictures later.
The kids spent their own money and bought me "Jamie Oliver's Game for the DS". I am terrible at the game, but really am a great cook. He makes the most awesome risotto ever!!!
I gotta go, kids are yelling for me.
Happy new year.
