Life has been literally crazy. I mean it. Really nuts. So here are the highlights and low lights. We signed the kids up for too many activities (piano, football, soccer, gymnastics, tae kwon do, religious education...). Not sure how it happened, but it did. I am hoping we survive until mid-October and some of our activities come to an end. Rookie mistake, I will be more careful this winter and spring. Duh. School pictures. I took a new job and start in a few weeks. After weeks of interviews (and I mean WEEKS) and presentations, I accepted the offer early last week. It's been stressful, exciting, and now it's just a great opportunity. I will go back to work 100%/full-time (from my 80% schedule) so more adjustments for us. And, I am a woman of a certain age, so went in for a mammogram (while in the midst of interviews) and with my appointment at 9 am they called back at 3:30 to set up follow-up screenings for two days later. STRESSFUL, but everything is completely fine. But, talk about a reality check and freaking me out completely. Mitch was freaking too. But, like I said everything is fine. Halloween, yes, it's a nearly a month away, but the kids are already planning their costumes. It annoys me. Pre-packaged and crappy...yuk! But, we did buy a 8 ft black spider and plan to cover the front entry with webs and make things a little scary and fun this year. I will post pictures when that happens. We finally got some rain and the fall temperatures are starting to set in. It's Homecoming week at our elementary school and yes, it's Hawkeye Football Season. And, if you are a regular reader, the dog is back in action and off of Prozac! The neighbors got a puppy and we overlapped our invisible fences so the dogs can play together. It's been a life saver. Mitch's birthday is tomorrow, major work events at the end of this week (and next) and Jojo has his birthday next week. Yikes, better get a cake planned!!!! Emergency vehicles has been requested. Enough out of me, hope you are caught up! So, what's been going on in your life? And, you know Daily Mayhem, the typo-s are included! Bye!
