Happy 200th Post!
Yes, dear readers... you are here on a most awesome occasion... the 200th post and my new look! I did it myself... just learning all this html code mumbo jumbo. My blog has come a long way since I started it and I've met some great people along the way. Sometimes I wish I had more time to put new posts on, but alas... life gets in the way. My mother already thinks I spend way too much time on the computer.
The Lake Erie trip is going well. Gary reports that 'they are onto fish' which in fisherman language means they've found some honey spots and are guarding those places with more secrecy than the CIA has regarding Osama Bin Laden's whereabouts. All summer long, when Gary & his partner were in the money on this tournament trail, they put the winnings in an account for this trip. They had quite a bit saved up and used some of it to hire 2 guides for a couple days. I guess the guide was worth his weight in gold as he put them onto some good spots. The actual tournament is Friday and Saturday so we shall see how good the guide really was. Hannah is missing her Dad something fierce. She has begun the countdown until he gets home. Four more days.
I wasn't sure what I wanted today's post to be about so I will just ramble on until something comes to me. I scared you all the other day with my Christmas countdown so I'll take it a little further.... only 73 days left now. I'm already in full panic mode. I've bought a few gifts already and I know that throughout the year, I've picked up a few things here and there as well. Thank God, my mother had the foresight a couple years ago to get a large tote for small gifts (ie stocking stuffers and other small items) to put all this stuff in. Now instead of running around shrieking "I know I bought that in March.. now where the fuck is it?" I just go to "The Tote" and get it.
Hannah has her school pictures tomorrow. Last year they took pictures right after gym class. Hannah's glasses were crooked, her hair was a mess and she looked sweaty. I was horrified when I got the pictures and signed her up for the re-take day. I also sent a note asking if, before her re-take picture, could someone make sure her hair was halfway decent this time? They came out perfect! Keep those fingers crossed for tomorrow!
