~The Daily Grind~ 10/10/09

It's SATURDAY!!! :banana: I'm working this weekend :(

But it's HOMECOMING WEEKEND!! DS17's football team won the game! DS was on the float with the rest of the court at 1/2 time. He didn't win king, but he was the guy getting all the hugs from the girls, so I think he was OK about it. :lmao: He said wearing the silly crown would have been amazing, but he was OK about losing :love: When they announced his name, he got the biggest cheers too, so :confused3

Tonight is the dance, and his little date will be coming over early for DS21's way too cute DGF to do her hair and makeup...then Chinese for dinner and off they go...

Deb, glad to hear your son had a good time. Bummer on not being selected but he seemed to have a great attitude about it. No wonder he got the hugs!

Joyah, you should lay low and rest.

I had a wonderful to do list. I even got a gorgeous, gorgeous cake. Thanks, Holly :hug:

Thanks. I am feeling better. head still spins every once and a while. boys slept late they went coonhunting with dad and some other guys last night and got home abt midnight. Considering they lost 2 dogs I'm glad Bay couldn't go. this was a club event and since she's not papered they couldn't drop her. they'd planned to do a non club hunt at 10 but never got there cause of the missing dogs (they'd found Pepper but since it's over an hour away from home Tom left). All I said was don't loose my kids or dog.

Glad to hear you all had a great time scrappin. I managed to start cleaning the scrap corner and got some of the papers packed. Still have time to pull it all together since it's not till the 24th.

Debbie - your DS sounds like a great guy! Bummer that he didn't get the crown, though.
Joyah - so glad you're feeling better! Isn't it amazing, when you're well, you don't think much about it, but when you're sick, you definitely realize what you're missing.
Nancy - cheers for the Senior Night win! Enjoy the car too, I hope you get to drive it sometimes!

Weekend's almost over, and it wasn't a great one here. I tried and failed to quit my job on Friday, for the second time. Now I'm getting a week off to "think about it".....there is no thinking left to do, and I don't look to change my mind. I played in the alumni band for my former high school's Homecoming game on Friday night, and we had a ball! It poured the rain before the game while they were crowning the poor queen, I felt so sorry for those girls! It quit in time for the game, and started up again as we were leaving. We were supposed to go to cub scout camp after the game, but I wasn't going with the rain, so we went down Saturday morning. All was well until DS got hurt right before campfire and we ended up in the ER. He ran into a rope that was holding up someone's tarp with his chin and fell backwards, landing on a huge tree root with his low back and his head. Thankfully, he's badly bruised but no major injuries; I was afraid of an injury to kis kidney or something, as hard as he fell. We got home about 11:30 last night, and I'm still worn out.

Today's short list:
Loads and loads of laundry (it was really muddy at camp yesterday from all the rain)
DH back to camp to collect our tent and things

Stephanie, I hope your son is feeling better now.

Joyah, how sad one of the dogs is still missing. I hope they find him.

10-12-2009, 06:57 AM
I would assume that they found him within a couple of hours. In all the years Tom's hunted they never left the woods till all dogs were found, and it was very rare that they weren't with in a few hours. That's my fear with Bay she's not trained in coming all that well. Our other dog he could beller and she'd actually come off tree which was great if they'd tree'd up in ledges or some other unreachable place for him. Many guys had to get up in those spots to get their dogs.
These dogs are members of the family just like a normal house dog so there is noway that they would be left. They also decided she's a cross between an english coonhound and a blueick was the majority 1 guy though chocolate lab and bluetick which might explain why she LOVES water.

Steph- how's your son feeling today. poor little thing. big hugs to him.

Christy-see there you go again with all the fun talk! i love to hear the next story!!!

Thanks for asking Holly.....he's doing much better today. He has a nasty scratch on his chin, but he says his back doesn't really hurt now, just a tiny bit. (He's 8, lol). He went to school today and wants to play in his soccer game tomorrow night, so I'm guessing he's ok.
