Wow, where has the week gone? I have intended to sit down and write more than one post this week, but time has gotten away from me. I've had a busy week and work and every night this week I've had something going on. Long story short, the blog has been put on the back burner because by the time I get home at 9:00 or 10:00 in the evening, the last thing I want to do is turn on the computer and write a post.
However, I'm here tonight to recap all the crazy that has been my life over the last week. Last Friday night, my mom and dad and I went on the Ghost Walk Trolley Tour. I've done all the walking tours before but have never done the trolley tour and so that's the tour we did. I must say the walking tours are 100 times better than the trolley. The trolley was loud and it was hard to hear and it doesn't have the same ambiance as the walking tours. So, if you decide to do a ghost walk in Huntsville (and this coming weekend is the last one for 2014), definitely do the walking version rather than the riding version.
On Saturday I did the usual cleaning and laundry, etc. and picked up my co-op food basket which was loaded with all kinds of goodness including strawberries, raspberries, bananas, apples, pears, red leaf lettuce, tomatoes, oranges, potatoes, and red onions. I felt like I hit the mother load of produce. I think my eyes were probably the size of saucers when I saw all the berries because I was so excited. Sunday I went to church and spent the afternoon whipping up snack foods. That night I went to church where my dad preaches and then had dinner at my cousins' house.
Monday after work, my mom and I co-hosted a Premier Jewelry party which was loads of fun. We had quite a few people show up and had great sales so we ended up getting quite a bit of free jewelry which is always nice.
Tuesday I went to the Huntsville All-City Choir Concert. My friend Meri's daughter was singing and she ended up winning Outstanding Choral Student for the City which was super exciting. We sat behind a lady who cracked us up and told us to "behave." As it turns out, I knew six or so children singing in the concert, including the uber-talented Troy. It was so great to see him sing as well.
Wednesday night was church, after which I went to my cousin Lauren and Jon Mark's house to watch Game Seven of the World Series. Lauren baked us cookies and we had a big night watching the game and checking Twitter because that's what we love to do.
All of this brings us to Thursday, which is today. I took the day off work because I had four doctor appointments scheduled, one of which ended up getting canceled and rescheduled. I started at the dentist and ended the day at the orthopedist where I found out I will be having knee surgery. I scheduled it for December 18.
So, that pretty much sums up my week and why I haven't been writing because I've been so darn busy and my evenings have not given way to writing. The coming months are going to be just as busy and sometimes I get tired just looking at my calendar. Hopefully, I'll find some time to write in between all the chaos because I'm sure you are all dying to know what I've been up to. In the meantime, I hope you all have a great weekend and a wonderful Halloween full of treats and no tricks!
