So went to pick up Jake and he came out smiling. Ok, yes, this is the good news part.... He said he got $14 and he is done with tutoring.. He had finished his last two books and he cashed in his tokens. I am so proud of him. He has come so far and worked so hard. We are going to test him wednesday for his math, but I don't think he will need the tutoring for that. He has been doing pretty good there... But I think he is pretty proud of himself too - as he should be. He has made so much progress.
Then we went to scouts - mind you, Tom usually does this... So it was all greek to me... But boy did they smell the fresh meat though!!!! This one guy kept giving me the book to look up what merit badges I wanted to coach and what ways I can be involved in the meetings and campouts and such.... Um, is there a Howard Johnson at these campouts??? Otherwise, you won't see me there. Anyway, he was definitely thinking he was getting me involved. I am all for being involved in my boys - but I am not too sure about this whole scout thing.. It is a different culture to me... Boy lead??? Excuse me???? Anyway...
Got home and Lucas was quite a bit cooler. He is actually awake now and the right foot is wiggling.... This is a constant thing with him. But before, he wasn't moving anything. So think he is feeling a tad better. No appetite though. Anyway, will take him to the doc tomorrow.
Some other good news - I don't have to report for jury duty tomorrow. I got a summons a few weeks ago but didn't read the whole thing. Well, apparently I was supposed to send in a post card saying I was going to report on the 1st, I was going to defer to a later date, or I was over 70 years old. Well, didn't send it in needless to say. So called today and said my husband is out of work, going to interviews, work is crazy and I have a sick kid. Is there anyway, I can get out of this? She asked when I was supposed to report and I said - tomorrow... She kind of laughed and said, well lets put it off for you . So now I don't have to report til December 1st. With my luck, I will get on a jury and be sequestered!!!! Oh wait... That might not be a bad thing. Will I be able to watch the Lifetime channel???
To keep with the good news, Tom had another interview this am. And he also heard that an offer will be coming from the job that he interviewed with on friday. So that is good...
So now we just need to get Lucas healthy. We are holding off on any plans for the 4th right now pending on how he is doing.
It is almost 10:30 now and I am teaching Jake how to make mac and cheese! I am liking this that the boys like and want to cook for themselves... Sure makes life easier.
Well, hope you all are doing well. KJ - I am so sorry. I didn't get your surprise in the mail today. It was bit of a hectic one. So will try tomorrow.
Til next time
