I knew if I waited long enough, I would have something of interest to share.
It has been a long, lazy summer for us. We didn't join the pool this year, so we haven't been as busy running around like we have been the last 5 years we joined the club. The girls just were not interested. Eva and Joy did enjoy walking around the property gathering berries every day for quite some time.
Fortunately, they got to them before all the deer did.
We made a trip to the lake, which we had not been to in quite a while. We had a great time with friends.
We also did some biking and hiking a few times.
We headed to Illinois to visit family and friends, which is always a good time.
Mike's dad owns a chip factory. We always eat way too many chips and popcorn. I gained 5 pounds on that trip.
We went to a neat museum in Chicago called Cantigny. The man who owned the Chicago Tribune founded it in honor of his time during WWI. Robert McCormick was in the Army and helped liberate the city of Cantigny. It was a very interesting place.
A while back, I started taking night classes. I know I'm very busy with my family, but I was interested in working part time. My previous job skills were pre-historic, so I needed a start fresh. If I waited until Joy was finished with school, I'd probably be on Medicare and no one would hire me. So, I'm employed. Part-time. At a hospital. I carry needles around. And stick a lot of people with them for my 12-hour shift. And, I get to wear a blingy badge with my name on it.
(I edited the picture as not to promote my place of employment...)
I celebrated a birthday a couple of weeks ago. This is the only picture of that day.
It's my selfie birthday picture after working all day. I went home, ate, and went to bed. What a party animal!
And, in case you are wondering about all those subliminal messages (pictures) I've added throughout this post.....
I'm going to be a Grammy come springtime. (I know what you were thinking. But, I'm too old to carry a baby.)
Congratulations to Seth and Tia!
