Today was Alex's first day of pre-k. There are two kids in his class this year that were in his class last year. He had a great day. They sent home a awesome note. I have to make a copay of it and post it here. I like his teacher. Of course I feel like the outcast since I am the younger mother out of everyone and I am sort of alternative. But he was super excited. 

I bought the 50mm 1.8 lens for my camera. I am not sure if I am going to keep it or not. I am leaving in a few to go take some photos before work to see how I like it. It is so tiny. I have my first paid photoshoot on Saturday and I am super excited...

There is a Orb Spider hanging out by our door. I hate spiders. I am allergic to them. *shudder*

Everything just hurts today. I think it is going to rain.

My friend Kerry K is coming down this weekend from update. I only get to see her about once a year. So I am really excited about it. Hopefully the weather will be nice and Alex and I can go swimming.

Alex has about a week and some change of school left. Hard to believe that summer classes are almost over. He goes back a couple of days after Labor Day.

We have been having some sleep issues with Alex. He is having a hard time going to sleep. Once he is asleep he is good. I talked about it to his parent trainer. She suggests limiting his liquids and we are going to come out with a routine next week. It will most likely require no TV on and just relaxing time with a story or two. She also told us to get some books with stories about what ever falling asleep which I got at the library today.

I can not for the life of me find anything to read. I have no interest in reading. I think it is because I read so much this year already and my brain is just tired of it. I need to find something because it bothers me when I am not reading something.

Writer's Block: B.Y.O.B. Holidays

To spend time with my family. Ever since my mom passed away in 2005, I have realized how important that time is and have learned to cherish it. To me it isn't about the gifts but the stories and the memories that are shared. I look forward to the Holidays every year.
What is on your holiday wish list this year? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

Writer's Block: Young and driven

What is the legal drinking age where you live? Do you think it should be higher, lower, or remain the same, and why?

Here in NY it is 21. Do I think it should be higher or lower or remain the same? I think it should stay the same. Kids are going to get alcohol no matter what age. Think about it. About 80% of high school kids have tried alcohol. So how is raising the age going to help? Lowering it means that kids have much more easier access to it which means more alcohol related accidents and deaths. I think that we should be concentrating more on prevention. I don't think that there is enough prevention in place. When I was in high school we talked about it in Health but not in great detail. We never had any visitors that came and spoke at the school. Alcohol can kill and not many people seem to realize this. It caused the death of my mother. So I have seen it first hand.
