Wondering what may come tomorrow as today has been completely drama free! Just enjoying it while I can. So, here's how the day has gone:

Isaac has already left for Open Gym so he'll be home around 8:30 tonight. He had PSAT testing today and with his accommodations he was sent to Mr. Dunn's room (special ed classroom) to take them. He was SO happy about it. This was the reason for the lunch outing. He was STARVING and had worked SO HARD. (His words.)

Maegann will be heading out pretty soon for her 6 to closing shift. We did have our discussion this afternoon and she understands where her dad and I are with basically two full-time jobs (40 hours at Taco Bell and 40+ at school). She does have Sunday's and Monday's completely free so that's good. She agreed to having "talk time" each Monday since she won't be around here much beginning Friday when she's back at school. Anyway, it's a start and I just need to pray that I'll know when it is getting to be too much before it catches up with her. She said the job is not stressful unlike the one at the care center and actually finds certain times during the shift calming and restful (sweeping the floor for one). She is making friends with the people that are also working the closing shift so that's a positive.

Tim will be home from work anytime and we're just having leftovers so I won't have anything to do for that tonight. He's been trying to get construction stuff done in the evenings since he'll be leaving for Reno Sunday night. I think he has all the drywall taping done other than some of the outer edges that need corner bead.

I'm really trying to wait on starting the new puzzle, but I might just get things out tonight and at least do the border. It's a nice project when Tim is away, but we'll see how I feel later. Only other big plans is catching up on last night's The Voice and tonight's Survivor, but that will depend on when Tim finishes for the night.

Tomorrow is a clear day for me. Maegann will be going to the Y with Kim mid-afternoon and Isaac will be with Meg from 3-6 so even some alone time.

This is a picture of Maegann and Kim and I'll tell you it is rare to see that completely happy face that Maegann is sporting in this photo.

They do have a bond and it's strong as they had to make it through a negative joint relationship with a gal named Rachel at the school. They are also working together on the Honors work and Kim is planning to get in enough hours so she can "clap out" (graduate) on the same day which is currently Maegann's 18th birthday.
