I know that everyone always said it stinks growing up, but I never did realize how much it really does stink. Now dont get me wrong I love the parts of adult life like: being a wife, "coloring", going and doing when I want, having a house, taking care of Duke, and spending all free time (when possible) with my hubby. What I dont like about it though: City of Tallahassee bill, Altell, Embarq, paying for the cars, ok lets just says BILLS, and watching my poor hubby stress over school/career. Neither of us were able to get scholarships, we have as many loans as we can get (HUNTINGDON) and have been denied for ANY type of financial aid (we make too much) so we are basically left with paying for advanced education out of pocket or getting a personal loan from the bank. Ok despite what our WONDERFUL government thinks, we are NOT rich so paying out of pocket is out of the question and personal loan...NO....if we did that we would have basically another car payment. So I was trying to be a supporting wife and told Tee that he could go a head and register and we would make it work. Last night he registered and one semester totaled $2k. I told him that was crazy. I just dont understand why people who want to get an education to better themselves but those who just go to school to keep from working get their school paid for. It just really ticks me off and makes me really think poorly of my government....I think Mickey mouse is who we should elect!

Kt's Shower

So this past weekend was KT's shower and I have to say it was AMAZING! All the planning and worrying really paid off. She had an awesome turn out and Rossi got a lot of really nice stuff. I want to say a big thank you to those of you ladies who came and made the day so special for KT and Rossi. Also I have just a few pics to post. I didn't get to take many because I was hosting :-(. So if you have pics please send to me dawkinstr@embarqmail.com. Thanks!

So, I need to vent and I think this is a good place to do it. I have certain cheerleaders (the same ones ALWAYS) that think they do not have to listen, do not have to yell and the one thing that REALLY GETS me is they are not TIGHT! So Thursday nights game was probably the worst I have seen since my first game as a coach. I ended up benching the whole squad...NOTHING I am proud of. I love these girls so much and want them to have fun, but I have to do something because running them ALL the time is not working. It totally breaks my heart to see the same ones trying so hard and giving it their all every single time and then there are those few who dont try at all. So tonight the girls were supposed to run 38 laps because of Thursdays game (no I wasn't really going to make them run ALL 38 but at lest half of that). I had a parents complain about it being too tough and they need to get out of practice on time....NOW LET ME STOP THERE...I understand practice is over at a certain time and I understand that the parents dont want to wait. But when the cheerleaders (only a few) are laying in the gym soaking up the AC DURING practice and making us run late...that is their fault. But the parents dont see it that way, they dont want to wait around...ok so here's a thought...tell your daughter to not waste practice time. PHEW....I feel a lot better. I knew this blog would come in handy.

Hope you all are having a great night...and I hope to see you all tomorrow!! MUAH!
