Random Things


I realize I haven't blogged much since summer began, and I'd like to say I will blog more soon, but I don't think I will. Maybe it's just a dry blogging season or something. So here's the gist....

I dislike summer enormously, so I'm pleased that this one is going by quickly so far. Having a teacher strike in June shortened the summer nicely for me.
We had VBS last week which went swimmingly. (You can see Megan's decorations post here.) I was on the snack team again and we didn't kill anyone, so mission accomplished.
I'm going to take a meal to Kate and squeeze her new baby boy tomorrow.
I'm having some folks from my parents' group over on Wednesday night for coffee & snacks & hopefully much-needed laughs.
I saw a beautiful tribute for my Uncle Dane on his town's fair web site and cried a lot.
I'm still in the process of getting my ducks in a row to apply for college. Feeling more confident about it now.
My thyroid is still meh, but my bloodwork indicates I'm responding to the meds, so he increased my dose. I'm cautiously optimistic half the day, and cranky and negative about it the rest of the day.
I spoke at an Al-Anon meeting recently and it was a great experience.
We have baby bunnies in the front yard. Our stupid cat killed one and was eating it when we found him yesterday.
I hate election years.
The boys are enjoying martial arts classes.
My oldest will be a teenager in a few weeks. I'll be accepting sympathy cards & chocolate.

I'm glad you didn't kill anyone at VBS. That's always a bonus. :)

We just finished VBS yesterday and I was foolish enough to volunteer! Actually, it was fun (exhausting), but I have a feeling I'll be signing up again next year. Everything's been so busy, even though I thought these would be lazy summer days. How naive can someone get?

Love the sympathy cards and chocolate comment. May I borrow that?

"My oldest is entering high school in just two weeks. I'll be accepting sympathy cards and chocolate."

Ha ha. You crack me up!
