right now I am leaving the trip as is. We will probably not get a rental car now. MVMCP is probablly not going to happen either. I am going to try to call WDW tomorrow from work and see if they will give me an extension to pay. I will have the money the following week to pay it. But wont by the 15th of Oct. Jeff is going to work OT at the store in Bastrop which is the town that was hit by the huge wildfire. 1600 homes lost and 50,000 acres burned including a state park last I heard

We finished painting the kitchen today. It looks nice. The living room and dining room have been done for the last month or so. It looks really nice. I am loving the colors. We still have to finish the trim. I'll post before and after pictures when we finally get it all together. We still have trim to complete. We are also putting in two additional cabinets above the existing ones on the interior vaulted ceiling wall.

Katrina is going to be here tonight so we can celebrate her birthday. She turned 26 on Friday. Her husband came up for the week-end and just stopped by on his way back to Chicago. They have put an offer on a house.

Becky starts her new job in Escanaba tomorrow. She has to move by the end of October. Escanaba is an hour away.

We are working on getting Katrina's old room turned into an office. All of her stuff has been packed up now. She has been sorting through it as she has time.

We are sorting through my MILs stuff tonight when Katrina is here. The girls will box stuff up that they want. Chuck & I will then decide what we want.

We have gotten lots done around the house the last couple of weeks. I've been coming home every week-end. It is a long drive but it so worth it. I get home by 10pm on Friday and leave at 4am on Monday so I get two fulls days at home and 3 nights in Chuck's arms.

Life is good for the Meyer's right now.

Good evening, DDA! Finished up Deva's birthday party today after a great camping trip Fri and Sat. Overall it's been a good weekend.

Bernadette - I'm so sorry for your family's loss. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

Vicki - Sounds like things are going well in your house!

Elin - Oh so close!!! We're about to break the 60 mark though so that's good.

Jennifer - Fingers crossed that you can work it out. I'm really excited to see you all and meet the girls.

Good morning, DDA!


(I don't know why I keep putting that darned sun up there. According to our weatherman, we have had exactly ONE day of sunshine in the entire month of September! )

I think it's wishful thinking!! I am hoping for sun the first day of October...Abi (and the rest of the Gopher band) is going to the University of Maryland to practice and play with at least the Terps at half time as part of a Massed Band day. UM is playing another local team (Towson University) so it may be both college bands. As the director said it will be easy to tell the Gophers from their bright red pants. There will be 9 of us cheering her onI am so glad to have Cassidy close by.

Life is good here, too, though I miss my older two so much. I never hear from Matthew (which I am used to during the school year). You wouldn't think it would take much effort to through a few lines into an e-mail, but I've stopped fighting that battle for now. I think I miss Laura even more, because I'm not used to her being gone yet. Also, she was more one to share with me, to watch the same tv shows, and to go places with me. She does text at least a little almost daily, but I feel like I really don't know anyone that she is hanging out with or what she does. I know that is how it's supposed to be, but it's hard at the beginning. I just want to talk to her and see her and hear all about school. When I ask questions through e-mail or text, it seems like prying, but the same questions would seem natural if we were just talking. I am just so sad sometimes, but I am truly happy for her that she is getting along so well up there. It would be a thousand times worse if she were miserable.

She drove 3 hours to visit her boyfriend this past weekend. It was the first long trip that she's driven alone. She said that the drive was a little scary on the way there (dark, rainy, traffic) but much better on the way back to school. I was a nervous wreck the whole time that she was driving, but I am glad that she is learning to do it.

Her roommate is still something else. The roommate's boyfriend and several friends came to visit while Laura was gone for the weekend. Laura came back to a trashed room and weird orange stains on her bed. The roommate also sleeps in just a thong some nights, and Laura has awoken at least one time to a strange guy in the roommate's bed. So far, the smoking hasn't been too bad or smelled the room up.

I think that she may come home in two weeks. I hope so!

Preschool started last week, and we have a wonderful class. It is a very small class, and there is only one girl. They have all been very well-behaved and are advanced for their ages in terms of attention span, sharing, playing together, etc. If this continues, it's going to be a great year!

I need to find something more for me in terms of work, volunteering, or hobbies, but that will come.

We were supposed to have rain, rain, rain the last few days, but we've actually had some pretty nice weather. I hope that you see the sun soon!
