If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I just finished writing this post, went pack to correct one tiny thing and somehow I hit the wrong key and the entire post was gone! I guess I need to start saving after every paragraph. Now an already busy schedule become busier as I have to rewrite this! Uggghhhh! Maybe I’ll just give you a short list.
This week I worked at the JogAThon at Anderson’s school, marking the kids’ wristbands as they ran by my station. They were all so excited and so determined to meet their goal. Their goal to raise $25000 for the school. I haven’t seen the tally yet but I think they’ll get pretty close to it. I also helped in Anderson’s classroom. His teacher had me sit with each one individually as they practiced writing their name on a laminated sheet with wipe-off markers. We practiced each letter individually then written together for their name. They are all at different levels in doing so and I’m pretty sure it is reflective of parental support at home. Anderson was just above the average but still needs a lot of work. It’s a little tougher for him because he’s a lefty and everything is backwards to him!
If we were having coffee I would tell you that this week has been very emotional as I’ve been watching the families of the Umpqua Community College shooting mourn their loved ones. It’s all that is on the TV news here. I don’t usually watch TV or the news but this week, I have. There were also more shootings this week but I’m trying not to watch or read about those. I need to distance myself a bit. Several of my friends have come very close to losing all of their worldly belongings in the South Carolina flooding from hurricane Joaquin. Just as they are drying out and beginning the clean up, they woke up to more rain and a flood advisory! Not fair. Last night, as I was walking to my daughter’s to stay with the boys while their dad picked Tina up at work (they drove her to work because she had vertigo) at about 10:30, I saw a man walking in the mobile home park where we live. I can’t explain why but he maid me nervous. He gave me the impression that he didn’t belong here. For the first time in eight years of living here, I was a bit frightened while walking to my daughter’s. Then, about a half hour later, one of the neighbors called and said the sheriff was in the neighborhood looking for and asking about an 11 year old girl that was missing. I don’t know if she has been found but I pray she has.
I have a lot of writing to get caught up on. I have a couple of guest posts on Part Time Monster coming up and I also want to write some posts to kind of “bank” for November when I will be participating in NaNoWriMo again. It’s almost here. Three weeks! Too soon. It always sneaks up!
Okay, gotta cut this one short. What are you reading? Are you dressing up for Halloween? If so, what’s your costume? What is in your schedule for the coming week? Did you do anything new or exciting this past week? Have you gone on any adventures? Tell me about it!
