I have lots of topics to blog about but all seem to open a can of worms that is so large and fiddly that I'm avoiding talking about anything. So, I'm going to give you all the fast and furious updates to clear my brain.
1. I'm going back to skate for the Rockford Rage (yes, after all that) They're WFTDA, they are five minutes from my house, they are very organized and they are a very nice group of women. My knee is fine. If I worried about breaking things every time I left the house then I'd never leave again. That is all.
2. The property manager of the house I rent was fired. The new guy is getting the things done. This is great, because we like the house.
3. The kids are well. School starts in a week!
4. The first printing of my book is almost sold out. If you want a copy you'd better order it soon. Only $20.00 CHEAP! There's only about twenty left. You can get it HERE.
5. We went to all of the following things this summer that kicked butt and provided a crap load of cute photos of my children in various stages of glee; Thomas the Tank Engine at the IL Railway Museum, Willow Creek Folk Festival, Discovery Center, Burpee Museum (dinosuars!), Monkey Joe's (Yes, I said I'd never go there again but I got out-voted), Festa Italiana, The Cabin, Boone County Festival, Pearl Lake, Pierce Lake, Sinnissippi Bandshell, Bikepath, Cars on Main, Alpine Park and our own backyard (woohoo!)
6. I didn't have to mow my yard all summer because of the drought but it's rained recently and now I'm in the market for a used push reel mower. Anyone know where I can get one? Cheap?
