Hello

It's been almost two months since my last post. I can't believe it's been that long, but then again I can. There's been lots of stuff going on, I just haven't felt like getting on here. Just dealing with regular life stuff. Then I got sick. I've had this cough for 3 weeks and 3 days. When I first started coughing (Friday at work) I didn't think much of it. It got worse over the weekend so I went ahead and went in to the minor emergency clinic on Tuesday. The doctor said it was allergies and sinus stuff. Gave me a prescription and sent me on my way. Almost two weeks later I went back to the minor emergency clinic because I wasn't any better. I was actually worse. I would cough so much I couldn't breathe afterwards. There was a couple of times that I actually started seeing bright dots I was coughing so hard and couldn't breathe. The second time I went in to the doctor she said it was Bronchitis. They gave me a breathing treatment and a shot. She also gave me a prescription for steroids, a different antibiotic, and some syrup to help me sleep at night. That was last Monday morning. I'm still sick!!! I have an appointment with my regular doctor tomorrow morning. Hopefully she'll be able to figure out what is going on. Or at least make it where I can breathe after I cough. It gets a little scary at times.

This past weekend Alexis Girl Scout troop (I'm the Leader in this troop) went on their annual trip. We went to Grapevine and spent the day at the Grapevine Mills Mall. It was so much fun!! After we ate dinner at the Rainforest Cafe we took the girls ice skating. It was every one's first time to ever go ice skating, they all had a blast. Alexis was the first one to let go of the wall and actually get out there to skate. By the time we left, two more girls were skating without holding on to the wall the whole time. Two other girls never did let go of the wall. One girl didn't get to skate because she was in a wheelchair, one of the other leaders took her to go play golf while the other girls were skating. I'll try to remember to email myself the pictures so I can post them later.

Alexis re-took the Reading TAKS test on July 1st. We'll know by the end of the month if she passed or not. I wish they would hurry up and send the results! I have most of Anoe's school supplies already, but I don't know what to get Alexis. I don't want to buy the stuff on the 6th grade list just in case, and I don't want to buy the stuff on the 5th grade list because I'm praying so much she'll go on to 6th grade. I so do not like being in this limbo. I just want to know what to do!

I signed Alexis up for cheerleading again. Anoe said she wanted to do football, then she wanted to do cheerleading, now she has decided she wants to do gymnastics. I just want her to make up her mind.

I can't think of anything else that has been going on. I'll try to get better about posting stuff. I always think of really good stuff to post, but by the time I get to the computer I forget until really late at night.

I am so glad that you have posted. You have been so busy but it sounds like a lot of fun to me (except for the being sick, which totally bites). I pray athat Alexis passes her TAKS test. I know from experience that some children just have a hard time with it and I really don't think it's very fair. I am just believing she is going to pass.

Also, I haven't forgotten that you want to get pics for the girls and I am ready when ever you ladies are. Until then, keep on writing.

Kalista said that she wants to go ice skating on our next vacation. I think that would be pretty cool.
