  1. Survived 2nd week of boys back to school! πŸ™‚
  2. Solved middle son’s health issue. So relieved it turned out minor. He is a smiley boy again.
  3. Surviving the oldest and only daughter invading our house. LOL. She moved back in for a while. It’s been nice to have a female around once more.
  4. Began editing my novel, again. I believe I have solved the first chapter whoas. It was holding me back. Now on to checking grammar and flow of the rest of the book. πŸ™‚
  5. Getting a lot of computer work done. Some paid, some not. Lots of learning being accomplished. I love learning. I soak in all I can.
  6. I have started going to the library again. It helps that my middle son’s school is close by. πŸ™‚ Win, win situation. I go a little early and spend time reading. End result, reading more! πŸ™‚
  7. I have been going through totes, boxes, and files. Tossing, sorting, and finding forgotten treasures. It has been way overdue. I have separated theΒ 4 kids’ stuff into their own tote. Plan on making memory journals instead of traditional photo albums. It’s been fun. πŸ™‚

This is one of my daughter’s cats, Nocca. Think I spelled that right. πŸ™‚ Daughter is at annual army training so we are watching her two cats.

I thought for sure that balloon was going to pop and send the cat in the air! LOL But it didn’t. Pets are rather entertaining.

On a sad note, one of our cats got out the front door when kids were opening it and we can’t find him. Heartbroken. Hopefully, he will find his way back. He is not an outdoor cat though. There are so many wooded areas around here and traffic. Worries us. We sure miss him.
