Same hubby, same kids, same dog, same house.
Dd1 is almost 17 and having a great time Junior year. unfortunately, "great time"=not doing very well in school. Timing is not her strong suit, apparently, as junior year is the absolute worst time for fuck off, school wise. Thankfully, with some good old fashioned grounding and screaming, she's recovered her grades to high C's and 2 B's for the quarter. She's in some AP/honors classes, so if (when) she gets better grades next quarter, she should get those C's to B's, B's to A's and wind up with a pretty good GPA. She played tennis for the school and is on the anti bullying committee, and really enjoys it.
Dd2 is in 9th, and is on the cheer team. She was voted to the homecoming court and was so excited. She's always been great in school and I worried about the transition from middle school to high school honors classes, but she's getting all A's and seems to be handling it very well. She's struggling with being over scheduled right now and learning to navigate that. Against my advice, along with cheer she joined the key club, young life, hosa, and is still in the ymca leaders club outside of school and youth group through a church.
I'm not working in urgent care anymore. I took a full time, weekday management position with the quality and care redesign department of our health system. It's been an adjustment, I'l leave it at that.
It's all good though. I love the weekends and evenings off.
Dh's account got moved to another company, so he went with it. He was with his previous employer over 20 years, so it's been an adjustment for all of us. His work is essentially the same, but we aren't too thrilled with the new company, so he's looking for opportunities that can bring him back to his previous company.
I love reading all of these updates, I've missed you whores so much.
