Various and Sundry Things

You know it's bad when you wake up at 3:30 in the morning thinking of all the things you need to do! I tossed and turned, adding more things to my "to do" list and finally just decided to get up.

I emailed a few clients, got my newspaper ad in before the noon deadline today, and typed the bus list for our away game Friday and competition in Hoover on Saturday.

Just a few more weeks of this and things will start to slow down...but for now, it's high gear and full speed ahead!
First, I want to thank my friends for the thoughtful awards that have been passed on to me in the past couple of weeks. I promise one day soon I will get to posting on them. Right now the thought of doing all the linky-loos and passing on the awards is overwhelming---problem is, I let it go too long and I've got lots of catching up to do!
We have a trip planned at the end of this month, which also marks the one year anniversary of my Dad's passing (October 31st). In some ways, it will be good to be "busy" and try not to think too much about it---but I'm also wishing I could be there for my mom. She's having flowers placed in the church in memory of Dad on Sunday, the 28th, and hopefully my brother and sister will be with her that day.

We are headed to Destin on the 28th for an afternoon wedding at Sandestin and then leaving from there to go on down to Tallahassee for a college visit at Florida State University on Monday, the 29th. We'll get to tour the campus and then we've arranged for Zack to attend a Marching Chiefs rehearsal from 4:00 - 6:00 that evening.

After leaving FSU, we're headed down to Orlando for a college visit on Tuesday, the 30th at University of Central Florida in the morning, Full Sail in the afternoon and then back to UCF for a Marching Knights rehearsal from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.

Whew! We're packing alot in during those two days...but figured we would get them all checked off the list while we were in the area. Pass the tissue please! Mama's gonna need it!
Saturday we're headed to the Hoover Met for the Hoover Invitational Marching Competition. It's Zack's last competition. Again, pass the tissue! My mom's going to drive over from Atlanta with a friend of hers and spend the day. I know Zack's glad his nana is coming!
Lastly, it was great meeting new friends that de-lurked in the previous post. I've stopped by and welcomed you to our bloggy circle, but there was one that I couldn't contact---so just know I tried and thanks for stopping by!

Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week!

10 sweet friends had to say...:

Glad to hear all your news. I remember well those days of visiting colleges and band competitions. The last one is kinda rough. It has been such a big part of their lives. I hope you travel safely and find all the info you need. AND...

Keep the "B" Club meeting highlighted on your list of things to do!

Sounds like you are going to be one busy person for awhile. Oh and so much fun! Keep a journal and tissue as you go on your way. This will be a time in your life you will not want to ever forget. Good Luck.

My goodness girl! I stopped by here to catch up and you had 6 new posts! I only thought I was busy! You win the award on that one! And no more talking about our baby boys growing up!! My firstborn is turning twelve this month and I'm completely freaking out! If I didn't have a very busy two-year-old running around, I might even be sad...but older seems to be better these days! LOL!

It was good to visit with you. Hope to "see" you soon!

It's nice to see you posting. Boy, you really are a busy, busy girl!

I know what you mean about not sleeping. Ugh!

Take care of yourself.

Hang in there Tracey...I can't imagine what kind of basket case I'll be when mine head off to college but thankfully i have while to go yet.

Good luck in Hoover! ;)

So good to hear from you, Tracey. But don't worry about us - we're not going anywhere. Take care of business while there's business to do. I promise you will look back to this year with fondness and nostalgia.

I came to your site again to tell you to come look, I have changed my page (with the help of my son). When your page came up, Oh my, it is like mine. I hope you do not mind that ours is alike. I just picked out one that I liked and he put it on my page. We have the same taste. (Only yours looks better). I am still working to improve mine. Hope things are going good for you and your family.

Hope all is well. We'll take a 'weekend update' when you get a chance...kinda sounds like Saturday Night Live...'Weekend Update' doesn't it?? :-)

Busy busy busy!! I know you are trying to drink in every moment that goes by. Try to enjoy it and not get lost in what is to come! I know this is a great year for your son (and you) but it is the beginning of another phase that I know you dread!! Keep your head up and keep enjoying each moment of each day! I am sure it is passing fast!!

(By the way - when is the get together you mentioned a while back? Is there a date yet?)
