Sometimes Mommys are stupid.........

Today was Ryann's second day of Kindergarten and she was late. And it was TOTALLY my fault!!! We drove to Fairfield to pick up Kamri last night and didn't get home until almost 11:00. By that time both girls were ready to pass out so, they went to bed and I went about doing those night time things that moms do. I packed Ryann's lunch, I folded a load of laundry, took care of the dog, etc. And one of the things I remembered to do before going to bed last night was to adjust the alarm on my phone so that I could wake up early enough to see the lunar eclipse. Well, not only did I miss the eclipse.....but Ryann was late for school because my alarm didn't go off AT ALL!!! Apparently I adjusted the time but didn't remember to enable the alarm. I'm a retard!!!! Fortunately, she was only 10 minutes late and there were still parents dropping off their kids when I was leaving (so, I'm not the only irresponsible parent in Gvl). I guess in the end everything turned out okay......but I was SO kicking myself this morning!!!

Hope everyone else's day has gone a little more smoothly!

Love to all,

So many changes.....

So,'s been a long time since I've updated anyone. But given the circumstances, I think everyone will understand. There's just been SO much going on!!! I haven't had time to check emails, return phone calls, or visit any of my friends in so long that I'm pretty sure they're going to give up on me completely. So, for those of you who've stuck it's the scoop. The restaurant that I was working at basically went under and has been replaced by another. This all happened in a matter of about 2 1/2 days. I was never out of fact, just the opposite. I've been working my tail end off!!!! I'm now the manager in charge of pretty much everything at Temeraria's in Greenville (located where Cole Mountain used to be). It was a tough change.....and we're still all adjusting. But I've hired 10-15 new employees in the past week and a half just to keep up with all of the business we've been getting. Lots of interviews and training in my days!!! However, the really good news in all of this is that I'll be able to work while the girls are in school and spend my evenings with them!!! I'm very excited about this!!!! Ryann is starting kindergarten on August 27th. Kamri still isn't old enough to start pre-k yet......which is going to be really hard on her, but there's not just a whole lot I can do about it. Ryann just came home from her dad's where she spent the majority of the summer. She played soccer for the Keller Soccer league and also participated in her first real gymnastics class. She did really well in both....but was ready to come home. And trust me, Kamri and I were ready too!!!! I now have a computer at home so maybe I'll get better at returning emails and keeping up with this blog promises though.

I guess that's about it for now. I'm sure there's more to tell......but I have to get to checking all of those emails I mentioned.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Love to all,
Melony Ryann & Kamri
