Ok, I am very new to this, but I am giving it a try. First I would like to say that I would love your comments and feedback. I spend a lot of time alone so I hope I do not bore you with the hum drum of my life, but this will help keep my busy. Hey and before you know it, you just might think I am crazy. Which, most of my firends already know that. Today is sort of the calm before the storm. Tomorrow I have to clean house really good for the weekend. We have two huge get togethers over the weekend. Friday, my mom-n-law, sister-n-law and I are going to groceries and out for dinner. When I say groceries, I mean like a church bus full of groceries. We will end up leaving with half of walmart and aldis. Firday night, my dearest friend's mom will have been gone for a year. We are getting together for coffee and love at her grave that evening, spending some time with her friends and family. I can't begin to feel her loss of friendship, support, and unconditional love. I am hoping that she will feel the love and support from all of us to help her and her sister through, not just now, but forever. ok, now that my eyes are filled with ginormous tears..I am moving on. Saturday we have a fall family picnic at the Sibley Lake Park for my husbands side of the family, which includes a weenie roast, hay rack ride, chili, and all the good stuff fall has to offer along with the company of the family we don't get to see very much. Then on Sunday, we are having "a day with friends". We invited all our friends and their kiddies. There are a lot of kids with them all, and with any luck, one of the will take care of me when i am old and crusty. We are grilling and roasting hot dogs. Anyway, just to celebrate friends, kids, life and love. My goal is to do this often to keep everyone close forever. So that sums up the rest of my week. Did I mention that I am a habitual planner and list writer? I have more lists than Carter had liver pills...no really I do...there is the groc list split into sections for each store (frozen, produce, etc), there is the list of who is coming, what to take (food untesils, me), a list of cleaning I want to do, a list of what to do on Monday after the fact, and, and, and, lists everywhere...see I am crazy!!! Oh in that same notebook is the budget from now til december, Christmas list ideas, the girly get together I am trying to plan for next month, the cookie exchange in december, the Halloween party list of everything needed for it, list of songs that I am gonna burn to a cd, man...when I write it here it sounds a little nuts, too bad there are even more lists in it that I have not mentioned. Oh well, have to keep my brain straight, or no sleepy sleep time!! Well, that's it for now I guess. Hope you have a wonderful, blessed day!!
