I have to say… The future is great… I can watch Sunday Night Football while I write this… On the SAME monitor as my Internet! It kinda makes it hard to concentrate!
I did just watch a bit of the Emmy’s… They had a Dr. Horrible skit that was great. I sometimes feel like Niel Patrick Harris is totally under appreciated. But he seems to be popping up everywhere. So, I suspect we will be getting overload soon!
Tomorrow I get a screw taken out of my leg from a previous surgery when I broke it. It should be pretty quick and easy. But, I always get nervous when I have to be knocked out for anything. Very few “good” things happen that require you to be knocked out! Removing this “pin/screw” should free up some movement and rid me of some pain I get from where it is coming through the other side of the bone. I have had a few people tell me horrible stories about surgeries that went “wrong” and staff infection. THANKS FOR THOSE! I am confident those will NOT be me!
Ang and Summer competed at a CMO (Competitive Mounted Orienteering) event this weekend. This morning it was raining… And I think they were both glad to be home after a long morning looking for 6 pie plates in the woods near Danville IL. They spend Saturday night camping out at the event. Aiden and I stayed home, built some LEGO’s, watched a movie, cleaned and played Wii. Big weekend all around!

A commercial just came on for Windows 7. I am getting a little sick of that smug little girl who they pretend can do all that multimedia stuff. Can she throw a ball? Probably not!
We sent out invitations for Summer’s belated birthday party this week. This summer would have been the best year yet for it… The weather was great! I called and left a message for my neighbor in hopes of securing a hay-rack. No word yet.

Went to the Morton Pumpkin Festival this weekend. Ride ticket are now 2.50??? And some rides take 2??? GIVE ME A BREAK!!! We did the 20.00 discount and got 10 tickets. Thankfully there were lines at all the rides… Thus, making me feel like we didnt spend our money too quickly.
I am gonna add some notable stuff here on the blog. People may think I write this to share with others… But its ultimate purpose is to help me remember things and when they happened. With that said… I am going to touch on a few things for my reference.
- We got a letter this week stating that St. Josephs will be discontinuing the 7th and 8th grade levels at the school. I have mixed feelings about this. We will be switching the children over to Midwest Central at that time. I would have preferred to do this when they are just a bit older. Because it means that they will have to be “latch-key” at a bit younger age that I would prefer. Then again… We were joking that Mom and Dad would be moving when Sylvia gets married and starts having kids. Ang said she would move out of state if the conditions were right. so, who really knows what the future holds?
- The neighbors dog broke into another neighbors house this week and killed their cat. This is more excitement than we normally get on this road. The cops showed up. I never heard what came out of it. I suspect that the dogs will not be roaming free any longer! I can see where you might let your animals do that years ago. But lets face the new world. People are not home like they used to be. Its not like “Ma” is home working around the house, making dinner and doing laundry all day at the farm while the livestock and dogs, cat etc are running around. No, just like what happened this week. Nobody was at the house of the folks who owned the dogs. So, the police HAD to get involved immediately.
- Summer and a friend got into an argument this weekend on the playground. Leading to some conversations between the parents. None of it positive. Now, I can tell you from my newly learned experience… When they say its never to early to talk about drugs and alcohol with a child… That’s a lie. They can be too young! Leave it at that. Also… When things are said on the playground… I think they generally need to stay on the playground. I punished Summer for about 5 straight days… Only to doubt that she did what I think she did. When it was all over, Summer and her friend were over it all by themselves.
Wish me luck on the surgery. If all goes well… I will be back to work next week. And soon be running the Boston Marathon… In my next life!
