Gotta go now - work is calling!
Saturday, February 7, 2009
So much is happening in the next seven days! I have two tests, a nursing entrance exam (NET), and a large lab assignment. Jeff has clinicals, a test (I think), and a project due. We still work, still have to pack, and still have to take care of Braeden. I am tired just thinking about it!
BUT - the end result will be worth it! The mere thought of living in a house that functions properly thrills me to my little toes. I can't wait to organize my stuff - neatly - and not have so much accumulated clutter to deal with. Mmmm... just seven more days, and then the real fun begins!

Fight Between Bradley Central High Students Leads to StabbingSubmitted by Larry Mack on February 4, 2009 - 12:41pm. News | Bradley County News
One student suffered a superficial wound and another is in custody following a stabbing at Bradley Central High School.
Bradley County Director of Schools Johnny McDaniel says two boys got into an argument about 8:15 Wednesday morning.
He said a punch was thrown and then one of the boys was stabbed in the abdomen with a pocket knife, "We did go on lockdown just to make sure all students were in class. Everything was handled very smoothly. Unfortunately, a student was injured. It was an altercation over a girl."
McDaniel says the suspect will face discipline under the school's zero tolerance policy.
Charges are also pending the completion of the sheriff's department investigation.
Additional SRO's were sent to the school for the remainder of the day.
The school also made counseling available for students who witnessed the fight.
Say what? Counseling for the witnesses? That must've been some fight. I understand that the kid got hurt, and I guess I feel bad for him, but given the amount of violence on TV and video games, I can't imagine it being too shocking of a scene to the onlookers, unless the kid's guts were spilling out all over the hall.
Back in the day (you know, when I was in high school), a fight was the highlight of the day and rumor mill fodder at least until the next big fight. I don't recall any witnesses who needed counseling after the fact, either.

Braeden will be six soon, and even though I love him more as each day passes, I still miss those baby days when he cooed and drooled and melted everyone's heart. In packing up for the move, I ran across these pictures of his very first camping trip. He was six months old, and was discovering the new sensation of grass underneath his feet. I love that precious little smile - we saw it often during those baby days. My happy little baby has grown into a happy little boy.
Could I be any more blessed?

But I digress. This was taken the night before Braeden's fifth birthday - March 26, 2008. The next day we went to Pump It Up!, Chuck E Cheese, and Toys R Us. This particular night, we stayed up late, and Jeff and Braeden engaged in one of their favorite pastimes. It's exactly what it looks like - Jeff is launching our son across the bed into a pile of pillows. I only wish you could hear the squealing and giggling that was going on!
Now it's your turn. If I tag you, take the sixth photo in the sixth folder. Post it and tell us the story behind it.
