Football, Rain and Other Stuff

OK...I have to start off by talking about my figs. Life is very, very good!

Last night we went to the football game and had a great time. We sat with some new friends and laughed and laughed...I am going to miss these times. Oh wait, I still have a 9 year old...I'll still be at football games when I am like, 90.


Compared to drum corps, marching band is...well...different. Kind of like high school football compared to college football. Similar, but not. Their show this year is really good, and the rain held off until we got home.

It was fun to watch Matthew conduct. In order to take this picture, I became one of 'those' moms. I actually climbed in the middle of the tubas...felt like I was part of the band! He was too busy ignoring me to be appalled...

And on to my 8th grader. Sigh. As we were leaving the game, he and Kyle were walking in front of us. I cannot tell you how many pre-pubescent girls ran over to talk to to him. We are in such big, big, gosh darn BIG trouble with this one...

And last night? POURING RAIN! And thunder! Our 8am soccer game was cancelled and I am now sitting at the computer with a pumpkin bagel and a cup of tea. I love my husband.

A little off topic, but some news. Last year I was feeling the pull to cut back. I was running my own non-profit, plus doing 20 some hours of volunteer work, plus a bible study that required 6 hours or so of homework a week. I was busy...too busy. I felt God telling me to let up and for once in my life, I listened. I decided to take a bit of a sabbatical.

Now I know why.

Last week, I had minor out patient surgery. On October 19th, I will have surgery...major, but fairly common. It was not a shock and was something I knew would happen at some point. I have spent the last few weeks getting a few different opinions and they were all the same. I must say, if you ever have the opportunity to have a friend who is a doctor, it really, really helps cut through a LOT of red tape!

It will, I am told, better my life. Which I actually think is already pretty incredible.

I am blessed.


1 Thessalonians 5:16-18:
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.


  1. Your picture with the tubas is another reason why Lake Zurich does not let parents on the field!

    Unlike Alex, my Sophmore Kate seems to ignore any boy that comes sniffing around her. I am begining to think that for a boy to get her attention he needs to giver her the cold shoulder!
