Satruday, September 13, we had a ‘Free For All’ day in Doniphan. Our church did a day of fun and activities for anyone that wanted to attend (we ended up having over 1200 people show up). We had free food – hamburgers, hot-dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, shaved ice, nachos, sodas, and water. Free games – jump toys that were supplied by Mike Oliver from Block Party Amusements out of Indiana…it was the BOMB. We had so much fun, I was very tired afterwards, but it was well worth it. From the feedback we have received so far from the community it was a great success.
Countdown to the March Gang leaving…FIVE DAYS. They will be leaving this coming Monday, September 22, at 10:10 am to fly away to Ireland. It’s going to be a crazy week!! I’m spending as much time with the kids that I can this week, I won’t get to see them again until March (which I’m already pricing out plane tickets). It looks like it will be pretty reasonable to go at that time…I’m saving pennies and going to start collecting cans (unless all of you that read this would like to donate toward the ‘see my family fund’, you can kindly drop checks or money orders into the mail and I will gladly accept them).
Also, my roommate has moved in. My house is crazy right now. I have to sets of living room furniture in my living room, I’m going through everything in my bonus room to either burn it or store it in the attic, and my kitchen has some bonus pots/pans and other utensils sitting around the counter top. But I’m doing what I can when I can, and with the Gang leaving soon it’s more important that I spend time with them than the boxes in my bonus room…oh, and does anyone need some tapes (the cassette type) I have a lot that I don’t know what to do with.
Need to run…
