Woooooo! How's everybody? We are still trying to regroup after the 4th. The Commander's family reunion was the 4th and 5th and it just about wore us out.

Things are slowly getting somewhat normal here. We can see the light at the end of the moving boxes! Trouble is, we have no place to put it all! I'm gonna have to cull (shout out to my cattle friends!) a lot of clothes in my closet. It is packed full and I haven't even found my winter clothes yet.

We have been trying to schedule time to attend all of the festivals and county fairs around here. We missed the Ice Cream Days (Blue Bunny), but this weekend is the Chocolate Festival. I'm not missing that one. The fairs start up in a couple of weeks. Hopefully we can make it to at least two. I need my funnel cake fix. Bonus if they have Pineapple Whip.


They are installing a fence here as we speak!

I've got to go sign up at the ladies' gym here. If I don't have to get up and walk the dogs, I may need to make it up somewhere else. So far, knock wood, I have lost 2 1/2 pounds. Not much for a month, but it is something. We try to walk at night, but we haven't been diligent about it.

My friend, V, says his tummy is shrinking since I am not down there to feed him. I was teasing The Commander last night saying he is getting V's tummy since I am feeding him all of the time now. Except I am feeding him meals instead of Ding Dongs, Sausage Croissandwiches, caramel corn etc. Stuff like chicken pot pie, meatloaf and mashed potatoes, fall brats with German potato salad, rhubarb pudding, and other goodness.


It is almost 10am so I guess I'll go get in the shower. This SAHM is tough. I need a schedule. The only one I have now is getting up and walking the dogs. And Merv Griffin's Crosswords game show at 2 and 2:30.

    Glad to hear about the fence. You could have made one out of the moving boxes. Might not of kept the dogs in, but it would have got rid of the boxes.

    I just don't see V as the incredible shrinking man.

    I am jealous of the Chocolate Festival, eat some for me. For you, I hope the fairs have fried snicker bars.


  2. Wow. Sounds like we should have gone to Iowa instead of Idaho. With ice cream and chocolate festivals we'd probably still be there. (mmmmmmm sugar....)
