Let’s Talk…

Standard

About what, I don’t know. There is so much going on in our little world- big and small- that I’m stuck as to where to start.  So here goes my brain dump:
> The end of summer sneaks up on us every year- kinda like Christmas. And every year we try to jam in a lot of things in a very short period of time. This past weekend it was a Renaissance Festival a few hours away and swimming at a nearby waterfall even though the water was 68 degrees.

> The kids and I loved the Ren Festival- they had a blast with the archery, horse back riding, dart throwing, jousting and rides. I just wish I had more time to shop. I thought the people dressed in costume (both the actors and visitors) were a ton of fun, but I could not get behind all the bare foot folks wandering around. I don’t care how authentic it is or isn’t, I couldn’t stop thinking about what they were stepping in and how likely they were to get hurt.

> We had Scorch tested for allergies yesterday. We knew he didn’t have any food allergies thanks to testing we did when he was 2, but it was clear he had environmental allergies (by clear, I mean the poor boy has been miserable all spring/summer).  Basically my poor kid is allergic to the great outdoors (all of it) and he still have hives on his back from the test yesterday. So we start experimenting with meds and see if we can make next year a bit more bearable for him.

> I’m re-reading one of my favorite books (Outlander by Diana Gabaldon). *sigh* It’s like visiting old friends- I love that book.

> I bought a few tickets to tonight’s Powerball drawing. I don’t need to win the grand prize- even getting 5 numbers is good enough for me. That’s roughly $1M. On our drive home from a fantastic family picnic tonight, I mentally figured out how we’d spend every dime of that money after taxes. Am I the only one that does that?

Here’s hoping next time I write, I’ll be writing as millionaire!
