Can You Believe IT!!!

First 2 post in 1 day! Amazing!

Second the real reason for this post. I feel it would be a GREAT disservice to my wonderful readers if I failed to mention the significance of today. Do you already know? TODAY marks 100 day left until Christmas!

Some of you just panicked like I did. Now I need to start making a list of all the things that need to be done. I don't even know where to start!

Booty Camp!

Who is going to join me? You will be looking GREAT for all those holiday parties coming up.

I am going to BOOTY CAMP!!!

I am excited for this one. I am going to BOOTY CAMP! Venus Pole Fitness is doing an outdoor boot camp in Manteca! It is starting September 27th at Woodward Park. They are meeting Monday and Wednesday nights and again Saturday mornings for 4 weeks. I am very excited to try this out.

Want to see what I am trying now? Okay, Booty Camp on the workshop tab and the second class from the bottom. There is a pair of shorts to the right of the description.

I have taken classes with Leslie and workshops with Diane, now Booty Camp with Grace. I can't imagine it being anything but FUN! Both Diane and Leslie have been supportive and inspirational through all the classes. I am sure Grace will be the same.

Where Did My Week GO!!!

I got VERY little finished on my Labor Day weekend list. On Friday of the weekend I purchased a pool table. Which means I have spent most of last week cleaning out my garage.

When I clean the garage I go through EVERYTHING. I have filled both of my garbage cans last week and on my way to filling them again this week. I have taken 2 loads in my Suburban to Goodwill and 1 load to a baby consignment sale in Roseville. I have also 6 empty 66 quart totes sitting in the garage. I still have a ways to go but I can see a HUGE improvement. I am taking the weekend off from the garage. Monday I will be back out their. I now have to find my Christmas Tree. I wanted to put my big one up this year but with Daph it looks like the Upside Down Tree will be going back up.

So this weekend will be spent finishing the top and back for "Once A Marine" for Frank, Scott's roommate and cleaning my house. I haven't touch the inside this week because of the garage!

One last thing Scott has a phone interview at 1am PST on Sunday. Please send prayers and good thoughts his way. The job is for the Carpenter Foreman in Baghdad. It is the job he has been doing without the title or the pay.

Last Weekend of Summer

Do you have plans for the Last Weekend of Summer? Not much going on here. I am making a list of plans though. There is a ton of stuff I want to get done. If I start my weekend tomorrow, I can make it a 5 day weekend.

Here's my list:
1. Steal produce from my parents garden
2. Clean out my Freezer
3. Freeze some Corn and Squash
4. Finish the top of Frank's quilt
5. Go to the Post Office
6. Tackle the shopping, Target, JoAnn's and Grocery
7. Start working on my chair (photos to come)
8. Piece a quilt back
9. Put up a batch of salsa

I am thinking that is more than I will actually do. Check back during the weekend and see my progress.
