Broken Heart.....Spence just got turfed by his girl, but he wrote a beautiful little poem.

As a heart shatters and sun sets... night sets over us like silent death, wind howls and and my shattered heart bleeds, my blood starts pumping to get me to take my leave. The trail of blood, shall you follow it and me? or shall you sink and fade with the sun... forgotten in the sands of time by destiny. — at boulevard of broken dreams.
Got up and after a nice breakfast, we went to the south climbing gym.  The bouldering was great and after a half hour of climbing, we headed to Cactus Club to use Spencer's BD gift card....he made short work of the card - finishing off with cheesecake for dessert. 

We got home, relaxed and then Graeme came over for Chinese and movie.

We read inheritance, had silent reading, math & spelling and then worked on the driver's handbook.  Spence decided he wanted to write again and this time after reviewing the handbook and writing the online practice exam - he felt he was ready.  He did much better, but not good enough.  He missed two road signs that he knew when the lady asked him what they meant and he didn't know the demerit points for 2 questions - I never quizzed him on that.  The lady suggested he wear a set of headphones next time to help him concentrate.

He was pretty happy he had improved and so we went off to 'This Means War'.  It was a cute and pretty funny romantic comedy - lots of action for the guys.

We came home and he took the dogs out and then we chilled with pizza and salad.  Tried putting garlic butter on the pizza - boy was that good :)

After breakfast we read inheritance, then we tried to fix his braces (one popped off the bracket).  The fix didn't work and so we continued with school - Reven (silent reading), drum practice, driver's practice exam, spelling, history, math, Italian, essay and printing.

We had lunch and then headed off to the post office to get James' Sony Vita.  We then headed to the orthodontist to get the braces fixed, then off to parkour for a 2 hour session of running up walls and falling off stuff safely.

We then headed home and worked on making some supper.  Perogies for James and I and spaghetti for Spence.

We started with Inheritance and then math and Story of One, which was pretty cute.  We did spelling, worked on the driver's handbook, drums, Italian, his essay and printing.

Spence chilled for a bit and then watched Monty Python's Holy Grail - boy humor to the max. We left for climbing - but none of us were in the mood.

The boys went off to Peter's and I went home - rotating wheat out of my diet and I hate not having wheat :( 

Now we're watching TV and relaxing.

It's always good, when the part that is ordered for the d/w is the wrong part.  The Sear's guy came and found out the part was wrong and so had to order the correct part and said he had no idea when the part would come in.  I got on the horn with Sears immediately and they found a part in Alberta and will have it here by Friday - no rescheduling for the installation though - will have to call back on that tomorrow.

The meds are doing their job and both dogs are starting to get better.  Karma is going nuts not wrestling with other dogs - we took her out a few times to play today. 

For school today we read Inheritance, the driver's handbook, we read about Mana Musa in the middle ages, we did spelling, math, printing, silent reading, and then Spence got ready to head out for the rest of the afternoon.

He took Kimberly out for valentines lunch at Angel's Drive-In and then we went to the orthodontist and finally drum lessons.  We got home just before 4pm and I finished making supper - taco fixings for James and Spence and soup for me.

Cancelled Karma's day care play today - she's still sick and Hunter has it too.  Took both to the vet and got more meds than a pharmacy has for the two of them and a fairly hefty bill.

Got home and read Inheritance with Spence, then worked on the driver's handbook, he watched a history show on Mexico City and then we did spelling and math.  He continued with printing, essay drums and Italian.

He cleaned up his bedroom and lounge - then Karma had an accident :(  So he cleaned up again.

When I got home, finished working on supper (hashbrown casserole, veggie chicken, gravy).  Now we'll chill out and watch some TV for the rest of the night.

The weekend was very relaxing - we chilled, went climbing and ate.  Not much else new with us this weekend.
