Random Monday Stuff

Not much going on now that school is back in session and life is starting to even out again.

I helped for a little while with BB at Girl Scouts yesterday - they're making painted bricks to sell as a fundraiser at the craft fair on Oct. 10th. They're pretty cute - black/gold or purple/gold with fleur-de-lis and the like on them. The girls had fun (until BB ended up with an eye full of mineral spirits - don't worry, she's okay).

Molly's birthday on Wednesday was uneventful. She had cupcakes at school and a family only (and Brittney/Gavin) party that evening. It was an evening of barbies, Thomas the train, and scooters. And of course, the traditional "birthday cake for breakfast the next morning".

Ian is looking at colleges - LSU, Xavier, South Eastern (I think), and Auburn. He needs to get working on those essays.....

Jerrod's birthday is at the end of this month - I think he's planning a motorcycle trip to the Natchez Trace again. I know they all had a blast last time (although I think they were all pretty cold) so I hope everyone can get their schedules together.

Jeaniene Frost, one of my favorite authors is coming to New Orleans for Halloween weekend, so I'm pretty psyched about that. She doesn't know which bookstore or day yet, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to need a bookmule again. Son?.......Are you there?

And, lastly, the Saints lost to the Dirty Birds in overtime yesterday. It's like a blanket has fallen over the city - you can feel the disappointment in the air. Okay guys - take one day to mourn and let's get back to winning!!!

That's all I got. The drive in this morning was a beautiful 70 degrees, no traffic and good tunes on the radio. Hope everyone (including myself) has a great week!
