Lemons

I was given a bag of lemons last week and I am not sure what to do with them.  Any ideas?  We are both diabetic so alot of desserts would not work unless they were sugar free.  I really want to use them before they go bad.

Missing her....

Yesterday we dropped our daughter off at school again.  I really enjoyed having her home for the month or so that she was here.  We took the time to rearrange her room so that it would be easier for her.  She has a private room this semester. ~smile~  Classes start today for her.  She had to be at work at 7:30 am.  She works at the day care on campus.  I will not get to see her again until spring break unless the take a road trip.  When we left she was excited to hook up again with some of her friends.  Do well this semester sweetie.  Miss you.

New Year same challenges...

Today has been a busy day.  My daughter had all four wisdom teeth taken out and I had two doctors appointments - all before noon.  Thank goodness for her boyfriend who came to take her home for me and stayed until I got back.  My sweet daughter doesn't handle pain really well and we couldn't get her pain meds until I got back with the car.  Poor thing.  She just woke up very hungry so I have homemade chicken noodle soup on the stove smelling wonderful.  Dad and I will have grilled cheese sandwiches with it.  Perfect for a rainy night.  
Well my dear son, Ian has officially withdrawn from college and has applied at a tech school.  He wants to study computer IT and found out that there is a nine month wait to get into the program.  So now he needs to find a day job to go with his night job.  His night job only gives him 20-27 hours a week and he will need more than that.  He is thinking of applying to substitute teach for the county.  His finance knows that this will delay the we…
