See ya in November {I Hope!}

Don't you hate when people constantly tell you how busy they are? You think..."well, you did this to yourself, friend. Don't come complaining to me...." (on a side note, I really need to work on compassion)

Yes, I'm about to be one of those people that is super annoying. And I take full credit (or half's a family affair around here) for doing this. Avert your eyes if you don't want to hear my poor, poor pitiful me, boo-hoo, how did this happen- rant.

I probably won't be blogging much, so I thought I'd bid my two readers adieu for a few weeks. October is filled with our first cub scout campout (we're so new to this...we literally have to purchase camping in a tent, sleeping bags, lanterns....clueless scout parents are we!), bajillions of cub scout commitments (ummmm...had no clue cub scouts required quite this much time), Jonathan's trike-a-thon, Ellison's homecoming and hosting our Life Group once a week (I don't know why hosting LG is somewhat of a stresser...but trying to keep my house spotless all week is rough when we're so crazy...but I do enjoy it and we feel very called to do this).

I am also frantically trying to get ready for my first bazaar ever. I just invested in all of the printing I had to have done for it....and now I am terrified after that spending spree. I'm a digital shop, so this is all new to me. I have to cut, package, beautify and hopefully make some sort of profit. David has reassured me it's okay if I don't....we'll just have 3,750 lunch notes for our kids; 2,000 fill-in-the-blank thank you notes for our boys to use (princess ones included...nice), countless sheets of Paper Pals, celebration enclosures and a big fat headache. But, honestly, the ExCiTeMeNt of this event is over-the-top! I just want to be *somewhat* successful.

And the last and probably most significant item on the agenda, we *might* be looking at a possible surgery this month or next. And believe it or not, it's not me this time. If you recall, we like to have surgeries: my gall bladderhis gall bladdermy thyroid, and now a possible hernia surgery. We're not sure how or why, but David has a very visible hernia that doesn't hurt one bit. In fact, I was the one that spotted it...David hadn't even realized it was there. Our family doctor is sending us to see a surgeon on Wednesday. David's hoping this can be scheduled around school breaks...we'll just wait and see what they say. Our doctor wasn't 100% sure that it absolutely has to be fixed. But, David's not sure he wants to walk around with a hernia from here on out. Doesn't that sound fun?

So, friends...hugs, kisses and good wishes for the next few weeks. Hope we are still smiling at the end!
