Another miserable day...

Well, it's been a while since I've posted last and a few things have come up/happened in my life.

First was Nathan's 13th birthday. He got a bass guitar and a cake for his birthday plus money from various family members. He's enjoying his bass guitar to no end and I have the headache to prove it. LOL

Then it was what would have been my dad's 77th birthday. Unfortunately, due to rules at the cemetery, I couldn't put flowers at his grave. I'll have to combine his birthday and Father's Day in one come June when I can put flowers there. I miss his smile and his laugh terribly. He would have gotten a kick out of Sam and all his funny things he does.

Then Nathan brought to my attention, that he's still being bullied. This time with threats. So tomorrow I will call the principal and talk to her and see what can be done. Nathan isn't doing his work because he's so distracted with all the bullying that's going on. I'm not sure if he's going to pass into the 8th grade, what next school year brings, or anything at this point. I'm just TRYING to get him through the next 11 weeks of school and hopefully he'll bring his grades up so that he will not have to repeat the 7th grade.

Daughter is still learning to drive, and she thinks she has a part-time job babysitting. She needs to do something with her time other than play video games and computer time. So I'm hoping that this will work out. Husband is still working his tail off as usual. He's got a bunch of work to do that will take him well into May. I'm hoping there is more work after that and I'm sure there will be. It just takes time.

That's it from mu household. I hope your life is calm and I hope things around here settle down soon.

Hoping things start working out better for Nathan... could that also be why he has been complaining about not feeling good. (stress will also make you sick... we both know that)

Hope things go well with Nicole and her driving and possible job.

You all take care and tell hubby not to work himself to death!

Hello Kelly,
Thank you for visiting my blog...I thought I would come over to yours for a visit to get to know you. After reading down a few posts, I am so sorry to hear about Nathan. Being bullied is not fun at all and can definitely cause stress, both for him and the rest of the family. My older son struggled with being on his hockey team during the last season as many of the older kids seemed to pick on him. He couldn't figure out why they couldn't use their energy to do better on the ice and in the fitness room; not only to better themselves but help out the team during games. Instead they seemed to fool around in the locker room and make fun of those (many times my son) who chose to take practice seriously. It was challenging for him - his passion to be at practice, to develop new skills was strong enough to carry him through the season; but he would question if it was worth dealing with the locker room situation sometime. With a little stepping in from me as I did talk with the coaches about a few situations where things did get out of control, he made it through. Be strong - be supportive of his feelings and continue to show him that he is a wonderful kid and doing nothing wrong. Those who bully seem to lack self esteem and want to pick on those who possess something they don't. Your son is loved and wonderful!

Take care,
Lisa D
