So many changes

I last left you with Bryan's problems. With the help of his thearpist and all involved I think we made the right choice in the way we decided to go. He has come so far I want to ensure he doesn't fail along the way. We have been busy in the house with income taxes coming in. We were able to get a van that we don't have to worry about breaking down if we go to far from home. Poor Dennise went van shopping with us and she hasn't been to Albany since three years ago, when we did school shopping. She was amazed by all the sights LOL. Oh well we don't usually go to the mall more then three times a year either way. We use to go every time we had time off from work, boy that has changed with the economy and of course not having a dependable van. The kids requests for gifts are less since we gave up T.V. now going on 6 years so that helps out alot with not having to search all over God's creation to make that dream come true. We have plenty of D.V.D's and the internet to fill in for anything we find interesting or needful to watch. So back to the van we ended up with a 2002 Ford Windstar Van with 50,000 miles. It has to go in the shop tomorrow for about an hour while they replace a sensor and sometime early next week we will pick up our other van after the Dodge dealer replaces a warranty part and inspects it. Then we will be up and rolling, and I can make all those appointments to check and see what is going on with my health. The price of the van kept us from being able to do as much as we wanted with our taxes but hey what can you do. The van came first. We don't even have enough to get the washer and dryer Dennis wants to get me with out waiting a few weeks. He wants to get me a front loader so we not only save on water but electric too, and of course he wants to get me a matching set. I love that he wants to give me nice things. Hell he is lucky. I don't smoke, do drugs, or drink, and I don't want expensive jewlery or flowers. I get very excited over the things we need in life. Not that I don't like to have the occasional Pegasus to add to my collection or some new clothes, but I really don't ask for much but the things I do want I want all at one time and that is not how life goes. I know that almost everyone knows that but it doesn't change how you feel LOL. I told Dennis the furniture will be there next year, besides now that we are getting closer to having everything payed off again in a few years it won't be so hard. We are in the middle of planning Bryan, Dennise, and Samantha's parties. Bryan already picked out the cake he wants me to make will post pictures on my facebook and myspace pages when the time comes. For Dennise I am going to try making a tye dyed peace sign cake. Wish me luck because the whole thing will be fashioned by me with no help from any other source. Since it is Samantha's sweet sixteen we are pulling off the big Birthday Bash. We invited family and friends who have been apart of our lives and have watched Samantha grow into a beautiful young lady although she does have a mouth. That she gets from the Graham side. Like always Dennis and I will probably go out to dinner for our Birthday, stop at the bookstore, and check out a few shops in and around the area we deicide to dine at. I have some gift certificates for Olive Garden so we will probably eat dinner there and then get cheesecake for dessert from the CheeseCake Factory after.

By the way I finally called my Aunt and Uncle and caught up with them a bit. It has been so long since I have been in touch with them. When we moved out here we kind of fell out of the loop. When we lived nearer them we were there much more often. I miss the parties and being close to family but God moved us out here and now we are real close to the job Dennis has now. Between the kids, work, the van and other things we have been real busy. I am hoping this summer will prove to be a time of relaxation with minor upheavels but as time goes by we will see if that rings true or not. Well I guess that is it for now on the changes in our lives. Have a good one everyone and spend your money well.
