Bloodletting and a bad day

Lloyd gave blood at his school on Wednesday, and I went to a Seward blood drive on Thursday, I was the last one there, so they were packing everything up while waiting for my molasses-consistency blood to leak out of my arm. It was a little embarrassing. I even consumed a bunch of liquid all day! (I wrote that because I didn’t know if it should be ‘drank’ or ‘drunk’. I think ‘drank’, yes?)

Anyway, before that I had a bad day. My group this summer is difficult, and there were difficult decisions made today with difficult consequences. I am ready for the summer to be over. ….then the school year begins immediately.

Ugh.

So much sweat

I have some other stuff to report on from the weekend, but I’m behind. (Lloyd was gone and I got a few jobs done.) The weather was incredibly hot yesterday and when I came home from work I took a shower and then merely existed until bedtime. Soooooo hot. My kids only went out in […]

“Ramp”

“Ramp”

Saturday morning I woke up early for Council Fire, then was ramped up to do a bunch of stuff. I stopped at the Center to water our trees (it’s been pretty dry here), and discovered that the tiny toilet in the toddler room was clogged. After some plunging, I hypothesized that there is a toy […]

The Niobrara Trip: Part 2

The Niobrara Trip: Part 2

So, we packed up the camping stuff and drove to the ‘let in’ spot. Sam and the kids spent the night at a hotel and nearly missed the bus since it was all so remote. Our crew made the bus take off late, but it all worked out. At the ‘let in’ spot, everyone unloaded […]

The Niobrara Trip: Part 1

The Niobrara Trip: Part 1

Lloyd’s family likes to go on float trips. I have only attended one, and because there were Harsh Words in the canoe from Mr. Canoe Expert to his Novice Wife, I vowed to never sail with him again. (Also, I have some water issues.) However, this week his brother Aaron was coming for a visit […]

Prelude to a wrap-up

We went on a whirlwind 33-hour vacation this past weekend, but I need enough time to properly sit down and write about it. (Not these ten minutes before I head to work.) It involved camping, tanking/canoeing/kayaking and ten hours of driving. You’re hooked now, aren’t you? Well, let’s see if I can get it written […]
