Home on the Range

Hey, it's been awhile; how have you been?

I turned 49 on Wednesday.
My 14 year old graduated from 8th grade

she is the blonde.  She was actually sort of nice to me since I bought her outfit .
We are wrapping up the school year here.  Two high school kids finished Thursday. The Kindergarten kid finished on Friday and two more (4th grade & 8th grade) will wrap it up with a half day on Tuesday.

 My daughter's Cosmo shop

My son's Metal Fab shop

Let's hope we have a long hot summer.  I need to get to the beach.
 GOOD NEWS bulletin:
My oldest daughter (30) is expecting her 4th baby!!!!   We are excited. She and her husband have  a 10 yr old, 5 year old and 2 year old daughters already.  Pretty sure baby #4 will be a girl, too. :)  Due in mid December.
Next weekend I will be babysitting for dogs so my older kids can go away for the weekend.   That'll be something .

Ah,  Prom Season.
I never went to a prom.
My brother
(a year younger)
went to about 8 proms.
I kid you not.

My daughters went to proms and
is my baby boy 
and his pretty date.

I have 4 more children
'til this 
nonsense will end.
I work at a hair salon.
we have these teens come in
for $65 updos.
The saddest phone call I got a few weeks ago
was a mom
cancelling her daughter's appointment
her daughter and boyfriend had broken up.
For those of you teen girls who are not worried 
or think you are above it all
I am 48
(49 in 12 days) 
I still think of the missed 
missed dress
missed hopes and Cinderella dreams.
But then again I guess I didn't get drunk and puke on an expensive dress
