Alcohol -count me in too! ha ha! I shall be there with a vat of wine! Like that idea!

Anyway on a more serious note ( not that Alcohol is not serious!) how are you doing Lori? Hope Tyler is doing well and up to date with everything in physio etc

. Did you manage to speak to the slchool about him? Hope you get all sorted out! YOu seen a very determined person and sure that they will realise that all you are trying to do is get the best for your son!

Anyway, i gotta run the phone ringing!

Take care Lori

Long Island Iced tea? Yummy!  I'll take one of those.  (That's all it would take to knock me out). 

The bribe sounds like a great idea Lori but don't be so hard on yourself.  That's not a bribe.  That's doing something very special for a son that's trying really hard.  Sounds like a great idea.

Make hubby help out this week.  You deserve a vacation too.

Hi Supermom,

Sorry I've not been around for a while.

Just caught up on your news, wow Tyler is doing fab walking at home with no crutches! Good for him  ;D ;D

I can't believe the schools have sprung so much work on him at this late stage!! That is so unfair no wonder he feels stressed!

When I was a kid I was terrible at leaving everything to the last minute, my Mum ended up helping me make a planner for my bedroom wall that planned out my days completely. It really helped me organise myself cause it would have stuff on like english 1 hour then 10 minute break, maths 1 hour, 1 hour free time etc. She was great at making me stick to it including having the breaks so that I didn't get too stressed and I loved ticking off what I had done. Just thinking perhaps you could make something similar for Tyler?

Hi Davori;

I am glad to hear Tyler is doing so well!!  I haven't been around for awhile and thought I would check in.  I had the same problem with Annies school and I finally just put her in a Home Independent study program through Laurel Springs Homeschool ... just for this semester and hired a tutor for Algebra II.  They are accredited and keep track of grades, work,  etc.  I went in and talked to the schools about her receiving zeroes in everything while she had been out and it was like running into a brick wall....
She is currently taking 8 courses instead of the six and will finish the semester before the kids in the public school, and is working 2 days a week.  She finally got approval to begin spin class this week Yeah...anyways good luck and look at other alternatives if the school won't budge Tyler should not have to suffer any consequences for his surgeries....

We'lll have to have another cyber-party! I never actaully made a drink I was all talk!

My husband is pretty helpful around the house, but I noticed it right away and married him, plus he's cute so he kinda like the perfect man, unless I am mad. Then he's a jerk.

Hope that you are doing well and your little man is getting onto his way to walking crutchless all the time, and then to school hopefully.

Hi Lori,
Hope you get somewhere with the school stuff.  I will be glad when John goes back, it is impossible to stay caught up and I have discovered that while they say, "don't worry, take your time"  That is crap.  They mean, get it done as quick as your non-hurt peers or else.
 I hate to be cynical like that, but that is the sorry truth. 
Even if Tyler doesn't get all the work done, take him to that game for trying.  Like I said, it's next to impossible!  John is a sophomore and is taking advanced science and math, but still.... I really thought they'd lighten the load a little or give him more time....sorry Charlie, no such deal!!!
Tyler sounds like he is moving right along and will be back in no time, did you decide on a date yet for his return?  I think you said, 12/1, right?  That's John's return date too.
Well, gotta change into some comfy clothes!
Oh, my hubby is very helpful...sorry....he has his moments though, just like all the rest!  He puts up with me though, so gotta keep him  :-*  Have a great night!

PPS-Hey Datapop, so good to hear from you, I have wondered about Annie and you!  Great idea about the homeschooling!  Good for you!

Actually I think I was the one that mentioned hubby being helpful around the house.  Easy for me to say because I don't have a hubby.  LOL  It was wishful thinking for you Lori. 

I'm still looking for the husband that will prepare my Thanksgiving dinner, coordinate and entertain all the guests, serve dinner, clean up dinner, etc. while I sit my fat ass on the couch and watch the football game and do nothing.  LOL
