I swear July hit and I tuned out. Is it really July 18th already? This month is going by crazy fast. Insane since Joe will be in Maine for most of it. Only one more long stint and he will be done traveling for awhile.
This week he was home so it was the perfect time for me and the boys to give him his just desserts and deserted him for a Rambler weekend in Illinois. Debbie was so gracious to host our gathering. Angie and Heather and their children were there too. It was great to get together and the boys had a wonderful time. Debbie has a nice slide show on her blog. I worked on a collage last night and I finally gave up when it did NOT WORK after trying about 20 times! Thankfully we all get together again next month sans kiddos for Angie's wedding. If you are into music, head to her blog and help her decide on a wedding song for her and Tim. She's having a time.
Tuesday Debbie and I took the kids to the Heart of Illinois Fair and I finally got to meet Kelly and Kenzee my newest internet friend. We had a very nice time and Kelly is such a sweet gal. It's was great to spend the evening with her and Kenzee. We took the scenic route home thanks to Hermoine (our GPS) and jammed to Deb's lame-o tunes on her IPOD. It's amazing we have the same dorky taste in music! LOVED IT! So you want to know what's playing on my PC at this moment? Video Killed the Radio Star...Classic!
On the home front, Tommy finally finished his ball season with a tourney last weekend. They played well, taking 3rd. We're letting him have the rest of the month off and then it's tryouts for travel hockey. Before we know it, we'll be in the throes of school.
Austin has been sick the past two days with a fever. Ugh, fevers make me nervous! He's up and down with the Motrin/Tylenol. He has a viral throat infection and the doc was surprised he wasn't complaining more about pain. I guess it's supposed to be very uncomfortable. Please pray that no one else in the family gets it! He has been very tolerable, I think I would be a big baby. That's my Aus, the sickly one, my little trooper.
The Sod Farm has it's tourney this Sunday. Of course the family is double booked. We have missed so many games this year. 2 due to a hockey tourney, 1 due to baseball. Darn Tommy is putting a kink in things and Sunday is the same with his team hockey party. The Sodders finished 5-2 in the regular season. Apparently they don't miss Joe and I too bad! Maybe this will be the year we go all the way!!! We put the A$$ in Grass!
Well how was that for a catch up post? I'm now off to continue my jamming. We have 1436 tunes on the winamp. Currently Barry White - You Sexy Thing is playing. Maybe that could be Angie & Tim's wedding song. Hehe, or they could change the lyrics, "I believe in miracles, 10 long years, we're getting hitched." Oh Yeah!
Better go before I lose readers. Now playing, The Beatles ~ Come Together. Good stuff.
