Ok, that rant is over. didn't mean for it to come out like that, but tonight was another battle, and hes' still not done at 6:30pm. I guess I should be grateful that I haven't had any calls from his teachers. I can only assume he is working acceptably in class...
Sweetie is also succeeding in second grade. Homework is much more manageable. Usually just one worksheet and reading for 20 minutes. She is very neat and exact about getting her homework done. Her latest accomplishment is keeping her room clean for the past 2 weeks! I've been very proud of her diligence in keeping it up. The special treats from Nana haven't hurt her willingness either. :)
Benson and I are going on a REAL date this weekend. I can hardly wait! Its been a long time. Between his horrible schedule and not having extra moola for going out, its been months at least since we've been out on a date. We're going to a "They Might Be Giants" Flood Concert. Its somewhat sentimental for us because we went to one of their concerts when we were first dating. :) It will be fun.
So... that's our life in a nutshell. :)
