This Week

This has been one of those weeks when we don't get home until about 9 o'clock each night. And while I love me some activity, sleeping in sounds really good about now. Because each of these long days starts before 6am. Yes, I am whining. A bit. But it's my blog.

And I'll cry if I want to.

Anyway, the girl began conditioning for select/club volleyball on Tuesday. I use the word "conditioning" rather loosely because it is apparently much more similar to boot camp than any regular workout one might have previously endured. It is, in fact, conducted by a former Marine. And though she indicated Wednesday morning that she wasn't sore at all...that tune changed - a lot - by Wednesday evening. She's going back for more tomorrow (whether she likes it or not) so there are apparently more good times ahead.

We attended our first Ag Booster Club meeting last night. That would fall under the Jeopardy category of "Places I Never Envisioned Myself" but I'm slowly getting into this new world in which we're living. The most disturbing thing I learned is that Bruiser will have a tag placed in his ear at validation next week (where they do a hair follicle test to ensure he's not on 'roids - no lie). I'm not really ok with this...mainly because it might hurt. And, also, I'm guessing it won't be pretty. 

Tonto told me to dress it up with a "big fake diamond earring." Anyone who believes he doesn't know my love language clearly didn't read the sentence immediately preceding this one.

The biggest news of the week, though, may come from Rambo. He won second place in the Dogtopia Howl-o-ween Costume Contest. Gotta love this sweet boy!

A cold front blew in last night and it's actually sweater weather. Finally. Which means the costume party we're attending tomorrow night may be a bit chilly. But I'l soooo take that over the "summer in October" temps we've been experiencing.

And I also realized this week that my girl is no longer a baby. In fact, she's quite striking. Stunning, in my opinion.

Happy weekend, y'all!
