Friday Fill In

Borrowed from P3knitter's blog

Friday Fill In's come from other blogs, but are fun to do. Here is this week's fill in

1. My favorite food seasoning is garlic- love it as a seasoning.
2. Wind through the fall leaves is music to my ears.
3. Lucky is having great friends and family to see you through tough times
4. Education is something I take very seriously.
5. Many people find I have a lot of passion for many different things.
6. Cat and dog food was the last thing I bought at the store.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to relaxing and cleaning my knitting corner, tomorrow my plans include going to Urbana for the last football game of the season and Sunday, I want to finish the living room so I can say it's done.

The end of an era

Once again, it has been two weeks since I blogged. Life has been scattered to say the least. Between my own classes, football games, and college visits, we have been very busy.

My class is going well. So far, my average is a high 'B'. I am hoping my research paper will pull it on up to an A. The topic of my research paper is 'How knitting helps us unplug from the electronic world'.

Ethan and Baylor are done with football for the year. YEAH ! I get a reprieve from filling water tanks for a while. They didn't do well with their overall record, but they had lots of key-player injuries. Hopefully things will be better next year. The reserve team did pretty well, with only two losses. Now we are moving on to wrestling. I will miss the football fridays the next few weeks. Since this was Ethan's last year, it is truly the end of an era.

Ethan has me running on numerous college trips. So far, he has had me at Capital, Kenyon and Oberlin. All were really nice colleges, but Oberlin and Capital by far stand out. He is taking his dad to Wabash this weekend. I am going to watch Kelly march for the last time this season.

So now, I am going to go home and CLEAN!!! TJ has spent way to much time at home by himself lately and has a tendency to tear up stuff while we are gone. This means that I have to clean all this up. My goal is to get the front of the living room done tonight, as well as some dishes (also left stacked in the sink and washed only when we cannot find a spoon), and laundry. Hopefully by the weekend, I will have the house caught up enough you can walk through without tripping. Wish me luck!

Classes and more

So, it's been about two weeks since I wrote. We survived the hurricane in our inland place. We have had numerous football games, some good some bad.

Ethan did very well at the last game. He had 102 yards rushing and a 48 yard TD. He was so stoked! It was a great win. I hope we do as well tonight, since we have homecoming.

This week was also district soil judging. Ethan went as well as several others from NE. Our team swept the top 10. We had four students go and NE placed first, second, third and ninth. Next step is state soil judging.

Kelly is still loving college. She has been very busy this week, since it is UU homecoming also.

Baylor is worn out from trying to get everything done. It is very cool here and it makes everyone feel tired.

Finally, I am taking a class this semester. It is English 101. I got an A on my first paper! I was really amazed, because I didn't consider it an A paper. She thought it was so good, she wanted to read it aloud.

Well, off to the next step of the race. Three (maybe 4) football games and lots of stuff. Plus my birthday on Sunday!!!
