Starting a new chapter

I am so excited. I just got the results for my test to become a Georgia Teacher and I passed both parts. I was so nervous about taking the test, but I aced it. I am so happy that Zeke pushed me to take the test. He believed in me even when I did not. I was not sure if I could do it but he was. I am so happy, now I just need to apply for certification to get my temporary credentials and start looking for a new job.

New family members

We welcomed 6 new family members today. They are so cute and fluffy. They are just so happy about their new home, I guess wish that A would leave them alone long enough so that they can get some rest. At least they will only have to be in the house for another 3 weeks.  I know it is going to be a long 3 weeks. So soft and cuddly, brown, black, yellow and gray colors so wonderful. So if you are wondering what I am talking about they are 6 baby chicks- 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Amercaunas, and 2 Buff orpingtons. We are building a coop for them outside but until then they will be living in the house with us.


This year I am going back to my roots. I am planting a garden and I WILL keep up with it this year. I have planted so far this year - tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, Kentucky wonder beans, sweet corn, black Dakota popcorn, squash, collards, cabbage, broccoli, lettuce, 3 type of cantaloupes and 3 varieties of watermelons. We have planted several trees this year as well- 2 Hood pears, Fuji apple, Granny Smith Apple, Braeburn pear, 1 crab apple, a transcendent  crabapple, a Washington navel, and 2 Dorset apple trees.  

I am using the 3 sisters method to grow some of the corn, beans and squash.  I am waiting until the corn gets  (6 inches tall) large enough to put the beans in the ground. Then I will plant the squash around the corn and beans.  The squash will be used as a natural  weed prevention since it will cover the area under the corn. The beans will use the corn as a  lattice and grow up on it.

For 4 types of the beans I am using the tepee method. The beans are doing well so far. I will need to post pictures soon.  Some things are sprouting nicely and others are not.

The kids are back in school. Oh boy what a relief. I do love them but we all need a break from the sometimes. The holidays are just too stressful now. People just spend too much then wonder why they are in debt.

Boy summer has kept me busy. The kids are out and the summer is full of stuff to do with them. We are just chilling around the house most days. Heat index is suppose to be 105 tomorrow. We will not be going out much tomorrow except in the morning. Went to storytime today at least that was the plan but Aiden did not want to flow with the plan so we picked out some books and played in the children's area.

Usually I have a pretty decent time shopping there, but not today. I went to checkout and the cashier was so rude. She did not want to price match some of my items. What really pissed me off was that she acted like she did not want to take my coupons for my items. She starts to tell me she can't take them because it say one per purchase and I had more that one item. I tried to explain it to her but she said it was only one per transaction. I told her to cancel the entire order and I would go to Customer service. Went there and the CSM told me she could not take the coupon period I was like why because it came out of the newspaper. I had to wait 10 minutes before she came back and told me it was okay to use the coupons. It just made me so made because it wasted time that was suppose to be spent shopping in another store. I called corporate when I got home and discussed my compliant.
