Happy Valentines Day!!!!

I can't believe that I have gone so long without blogging. I have been on an emotional roller coaster these past few weeks trying to get Mark some help at school. I went "outside" the school and got some help. Now the school has learned that I am "on my own" they are all of sudden getting interested. We took him to Huntington Learning Center and the results were just as we expected. The surprise though was how poorly he is "comprehending" what he reads. He is a strong reader and he can tell you what happens in a story. But, when he has to write it down, he can't. So, we bit the bullet and enrolled him there to get help. The school was unable to find a "tutor" for him. They recommended I call another school to see if they have any teachers willing to tutor. Oh well, I have put that behind me and am looking forward to Mark really learning and hopefully enjoy school. There is nothing worse than having to fight your six year old to go to school because he hates it.

I really don't have much to tell. My days are boring! I don't have anything planned for Valentines Day. Steve is out of town and supposed to be home tonight but I am not holding my breath. He is in Cincinnati and they got all that sleet. So I would be real surprised if he gets home tonight.

My car is acting up and there is nothing I can do. I have a few dashboard lights on but I have to drive it. I don't have a back up car or anyone who is willing to help me out with my crazy schedule. Hopefully, it can "hang on" until Friday when I don't have all the practices and car pools to run. I used to love my van but now I can fell my Blood Pressure rise when I open the door to get in.

My prayers are going out right now to all the people in Salt Lake who were impacted by that horrible shooting at Trolley Square. When I lived in Utah, that was my favorite mall to go visit. I can't imagine what would possess someone to do that. My thoughts are with families.

Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentines Day. Sorry this blog is so boring. Hopefully soon I will have some fun stuff to blog about.
