I forgot it was picture day at Homeschool Enrichment and I’m on a budget so I didn’t buy any packages. I took these of the kids, quickly, as we were headed into school. The bottom picture is Rachel from a few years ago while we were waiting for the bus. Julie London Boston Rachel : 2014 or 2015

I wanted to perch the urn on the tree behind them but I didn’t do it for their sake. Julie starts 8th, London 6th and a Boston 5th.  They are all taking a bunch of science classes in their Friday Homeschooling Enrichment. Julie is super excited about sewing class, one step closer to being ready for the zombie apocalypse….. 🙂 I am missing their sister like crazy. I was definitely a ball of tears on the drive to the kids Friday school.

My kids are tasked with blogging several times a month in order to work on their writing skills.  They have a lot of unanswered blogs, probably about topics that don’t always interest you (or me haha, kidding, yes, kidding)…. Some of the things they write about I know nothing about.  But, they still take the time to write them, mainly because I make them, so I am going to make sure each one is read with a meaningful comment.  I have gotten behind in the last couple of months. No Mom is perfect… Can you take the time to read a blog or two and post an encouraging comment? It would mean the world to me. www.schoolhack.co

I’m up to my eyes in debt since my x ran off to find himself. It literally makes me want to die and I don’t know what to do. I’ve spent the last year living off of credit cards just to support my family. It makes me feel sick on the daily and I lose a lot of sleep over this every week. Ready to live on cash and need to find a way to start chipping away at this mountain before it crushes me. Where do I begin?

My 12 year old is pretty mature for his age and has a few older step brothers. He’s been exposed to lots of stuff and has a mature sense of humor. I keep hearing that the movie is R rated but that its not appropriate. He has seen too many R rated movies to count and enjoyed most of them (as much as any adult would have). What’s your take? Do you think Deadpool is too mature? Like, really really R rated?

Boston, London and Julie at Hull Gut, Peddocks Island in Hull, MA, March 2015

I’ve been wanting to write this post for months but have had such a hard time coming up with the right words.  This is a problem I never seem to have but it has been so hard for me because I’m too close to the problem.  I’m not sure that makes sense, my head feels crazy every weekend and sometimes I want to sleep it away.

Not the best pictures (too many pictures to edit!!!!) but they’ll do! <3  Thank you so much to Sue for having us over yet again, being super generous and awesome and drinking margaritas with me at 10am.  <3

To put it as directly as possible: my oldest daughter is dying, I’m a single Mom and life is a bit tough at present. I realized that I was due for a magnificent stress relief yesterday. I was at the bus stop putting my daughter on her bus with my Mother at my side. It was not a regular moment, my Mom was in from Boston visiting myself and my children. I had let my daughter stay home all week from school so she could spend every waking moment within fingers’ reach of my Mom.

For Thanksgiving we had a great time at the Schnelker household who graciously offered their home for Thanksgiving:
