It's good to be back
in front of the computer.
I have so much to tell you,
where should I begin?
Well, I am sure that you've heard
the news. I have joined the masses
of the unemployed. I think that I will
take a little time to kick back and
enjoy my freedom for a few months.
I made the mistake of looking at some
colleges and universities online.
My phone has been ringing off the hook
I am totally undecided in what
I would like "to be
when I grow up...."
All I know, is that it won't
be in a small office again.
I need job security and benefits.
Meanwhile, my Mom needs some medical attention.
So it's a good thing
that I am available to take care of her.
Have any of you ever experienced
Cellulitis in your shins?
It's not pretty or fun....
I really feel for her.
The Minnesota State Fair was up and running
for it's full 12 days.
Certainly, Jacob and I couldn't miss that!
Neither could anyone else,
for that matter.
It boasted record attendance.
Almost 2 million visitors this year.
Me and about 160,000 (on average)
of my closest friends a day
were confined to a 320 acre plot.
More about that later this week.
Cousin Jay from Orlando
couldn't miss the fair -
On our "Off-Day" we hosted a BBQ -
Brats and such...Stay tuned -
I'll post that on Foodie Friday!
Jacob went back to school
on the 9th of September.
All I have been hearing is
"Did I tell you how much I hate school..."
(But I think he secretly likes it -
at least the socialization part...)
I really miss having him around here
during the day.
And I'm not thrilled with the
homework battle that ensues each night.
After that, my Uncle Larry & Aunt Betty
from North Carolina came for a visit.
So it was a week of BBQ's, family reunions,
re-visiting old neighborhoods,
Oh, and Jacob has tried
to help curtail our Bunny problem
by installing an electric fence
around the flowers.....
But as you can see - the littlest of bunnies
just shimmy underneath
and eat to their hearts content.
