Hello November! It's been a busy fall. Monday marked the first day of the new quarter, the Halloween amp up lasted all week and trick-or-treating was joined by our first snow of the season. Today I'm feeling the need to... Continue reading

For a full week, my one goal for Saturday was to keep it empty of obligations. I had high hopes of catching up on a few things around the home. I didn't get caught up on everything I intended to,... Continue reading

Last week was full. Besides both of the boys having their fall concerts on separate nights, we also had Wendy's 19th birthday. Poor kid had to make her own birthday brownies, and we had our obnoxious singing and gift giving... Continue reading

Yesterday morning I texted my mom and asked, do you really want to do that Eloise tour? And, how does next Saturday look? Great, she said. So I bought tickets. I then quickly realized that I'd bought them for this... Continue reading

Last night was Brian's first high school concert. Brian: Mom - I'm in the middle of the row of saxophones, in the 3rd row. You won't even be able to see me, let alone be able to get a picture... Continue reading

Busy week night one had us at Mark's band concert. His grade performed Smoke on the Water and Parts II and III of Midnight Suite. I've never brought my camera to any of the boy's performances before, but this week's... Continue reading

This evening we performed the annual inspection of the hot air balloon, inside and out. It was while on the way to the inspection that I remembered - our anniversary isn't Saturday. It's TODAY! Sigh. I opted out of the... Continue reading

So. I'm a tad behind on blogging. It happens. Things get busy around here once school is back in session. Archery season starts a week from today, and then things get even busier with this guy still coaching, and Brian... Continue reading

School may have started already, but I give ourselves until Labor Day to work on our summer manifestos. Today's adventure came from mine. We've actually tried to get to the Whiting Forest Canopy Walk a couple times, and each time... Continue reading

I'm in catch-up mode! This flight was a few weeks ago. August 7th to be precise. It was the day the boys and I got home from Boyne. Two days before our out of town guests arrived. We had meandered... Continue reading

As I mentioned in the previous post, I went back to work almost two weeks ago. I can't remember if I ever mentioned it here, but I began a new position this year. After spending the last seven years carrying... Continue reading

I went back to work a couple weeks ago, and have been putting in some long hours in preparation for the first day of school quickly approaching this coming Monday. My cell phone doesn't work in our office, so I... Continue reading

I'm at least three big blog posts behind these days. With school around the corner, let's just say that things are picking up speed. I'm doing my very best to keep all the balls in the air. Before going to... Continue reading

Yesterday, we hit the ground running. I had promised the boys a day off from the purging and cleaning, and we'd long planned to hit Crossroads Village on a Wednesday. The weather yesterday was absolutely perfect. First - we had... Continue reading

After a hard day's work, I thoroughly enjoyed my evening walk to town to listen to the Livingston County Concert Band. The first two of their three Howell performances had been canceled due to bad weather. Tonight was gorgeous. Immediately... Continue reading

It was a beautiful night for a flight. Problem was, we were short on crew. A few text rejections, and I ended up telling my kids that they'd be crewing tonight. It's been a few years since they've come along.... Continue reading
