Sunday Share: Week 33

There are 18 days of summer left here.

There are 72 days until Halloween. I’m going as either Captain Underpants or a ghost. DW is going to be Mrs. Underpants. Crash says he wants to be either Luigi or a cat. Bang says he wants to be Captain America. What are you going to be?

There are 127 days until Christmas. That’s just 18 more Fridays. I haven’t even started my shopping yet! Have you?

While you’re waiting for Christmas you can read these blogs that I read, too…

Sunday Share

I’ve been doing this share thing since I was inspired by A Momma’s View‘s “My Pick’s of the Week”. I think that was a long time ago, like when Yoda was just a baby. I started it because I really enjoyed finding new blogs to follow through her lists and wanted to help spread that joy like peanut butter on a PBJ. I learned quickly that other enjoyed my lists and it helps them become known.

Then I learned about the perks. Sometimes, people want to share me because I shared them and love getting those emails saying I need to approve that new pingback. It’s like having your cake and eating it, too. It’s like when the kids willingly help with chores. It’s a virtual fist bump.

Knuckle up and Happy Reading!

Monday Share: Week 31

We made it back from our 3 night camping trip. The tent didn’t catch fire nor did a bear break into it. I’ll call it a win. We hung out with family, met up with some friends, and overall had a great time. I’ll give all y’all an update on it later. There were some funny moments that totally need to be shared.

And some pictures.

Tomorrow is my birthday. I’ll be 878 years old. Almost as old as Yoda. However, I’m only as wise as a wookie. Since it’s my birthday, I want you to share with me. Down in the comments leave me a link to a post written within the last week. I’ll go read it and comment. It can be your post, or a friend’s post, or whatever post you read and liked and want to share with me. Then share this post. I want lots to read and it won’t cost you a cent.

You have to.

It’s my birthday.

Monday Share: Week 31

I’ve learned a lot since I started coaching baseball this summer. For instances, it doesn’t matter if you win or lose, but it does matter how you win or lose. I’ve learned that it’s also not about winning and losing, it’s about how much fun you had. Lastly, I learned that winning is more fun. There is a post in progress about it, actually. Tonight, however, our ball team won. There were good plays made in the field. There were good hits made at the plate. There was even a homerun. We allowed just 1 run in the first inning and 2 runs in the last 3 innings. We won 17-11.

Now here are some winning posts…

*Stage whispering* There’s 160 days left!

I must not be well. I was in a bookstore yesterday with permission to buy books. That doesn’t happen often. I have a stack of books in my “to read” pile. I’m currently reading The Virgin Cure by Ami McKay. I highly recommend it. Anyway, here was I surrounded by thousands of books and I walk out empty handed. Well, not really empty. Crash bought a Warriors book about cats and Bang got Little Miss Stubborn and an early reader Star Wars book. I got nothing. Did I not know which ones I wanted? Was I so torn in my decision to choose one that I chose none? Was I really content with the number of books I have? 

For now, we’ll pick D) All of the above.

For those who are counting there are just 167 days left until Christmas. For those who aren’t counting there are still 167 days until Christmas.

Today I’d like to honor the seven 8 blogs who appear in my email that I make sure I read. Skim if I don’t have time to fully read. But I read and comment when I can. Some are on journeys. Some are insightful. Some are just plain funny. It’s a good can of mixed nuts.

Happy Belated birthday, Canada. 150 years old! Back when Dinosaurs were inventing water. We celebrated by wearing our matching Canada 150 shirts, eating a free pancake breakfast, checking out some tall ships (105 feet tall to be exact), eating some free hotdogs and Canada’s birthday cake. There was music, bouncy castles, spray on tats, and tired, cranky kids who then had to go home and clean their room after supper.

Happy Canada Day!

I hope all you dads had great day yesterday. Moms, I hope your children’s father and your own father had a great day.

Even all of you who fill the fatherly role.

Hope you were able to play your “Dad Card” to get out any unwanted duties. Now we’re back to real life so it’s back to working and cooking and cleaning and jumping on trampolines and putting kids to bed and doing whatever it is you do as Dad.

Sunday Share: Week 24

We relayed all day yesterday. Relayed for Life. Our town used to host a Relay for Life. However, last year they opted not because of a lack of support. So “Ray Ray’s Sugarbears” made this their final year for Relay. Their dad put the bug in their ear last fall about taking part in one nearby since our town wasn’t holding one. When he passed in February DW and her brother vowed to make it their best one yet.

They set ambitious fundraising goals. DW wanted to raise $2,000. Her brother, $15,000. Not only did they reach their $17,000 wish, they blew it out of the sky.

They were the top fundraising team with $22,500.

The goal for the town’s Relay was $20,000. They raised $50,000.
