I'm doing it!

I crossed 18 items off my list.

I reworked a PWOC "thing" I'm trying to write.

I drove boys here and there.

I cleaned house - a bit.

I dealt with SPRINT, again! Grrrr....they are making me CRAZY! We were told in Jan that we would receive a 15% military discount. I noted months later that we WEREN'T receiving this. I called them. They fixed it so I would receive it but told me it would take 2 months to show up. I called again and told them that it didn't seem right that they said I would get this discount since Jan and I didn't begin seeing it until July and I wanted it to be retroactive. I think that is fair.They opened a dispute for me. Today was the LAST day for them to settle it. I got a call. They decided not to give me the back pay because I didn't call them within 2 months of the dispute which began in Jan. HELLO????? I explained that I had a written contract where they SAID they would give me the discount and it seems to me that regardless of WHEN I caught that they weren't giving me the discount THEY should honor the contract. She kept me on hold another 10 minutes as she talked with her supervisor again. Oh - if you have a written contract fax it to us and we'll give it to you. NOW I need to find the written contract and I have a sinking feeling that they didn't write it down...that they tell you this so that you'll sign up and then don't give you the discount until you complain....OK that is unfair - I'm being jaded....and I'm sure my view is colored by the Bank of America thing last year. LOL Sprint wasn't on my list!

These arrived!!!!!


What a BLESSING! I've been worried about how to pay for school "right now". I put out feelers that I was looking to buy a used redisgn TOG Year 2 (side bar links). I was offered brand new shrink wrapped 3 units FREE. Can you believe that? They'd sent duplicates to a customer. They'd told her they would pay shipping for her to send it back or she could find a ministry family to give it to. She found me. I'll need to buy Unit 4 but that can wait a bit. I am currently trying to figure out which Unit 1 books I MUST have and get those ordered before we leave on vacation.

Where has the summer gone? I'm not ready for school to begin again.

We've not been ONLY working...
Jared, wanna dance?

I have been asked to look at artwork to pick some out for the new chapel. Um....hmmm...I need to get in the right frame of mind for this...I think I'll save it for tomorrow and go read until Mike get's home. LOL

De'Etta, I am right there with you...waiting for the rest filled, peaceful part of summer to begin. We begin school in less than two weeks. :/

Praying you receive it while you're in Colorado, huggin' your big girls' necks. :)

I know the feeling about summer almost over and school starting.

I got our TOG year 2 about a month ago. Yesterday I spent most of the day reading and looking for books. Our library system only has Norton's English Lit. Last night it was determined in order for our oldest to get an Honors credit I would need to buy the Norton's Western Lit. has it "pretty cheap." lol

Praying for a blessed vacation and for life to slow down a bit.

I'm trying not to think about summer ending but I keep thinking about it anyway!

Praying that your vacation seems long and restful. A nice break from all the planning.
