Happy September! Kids are back in school, with my oldest away at college for the first time, so a huge adjustment in our home. My youngest boy just got his driver's license a couple of days ago. And my 13 year old daughter, my National Team luge athlete, has six weeks of training scheduled for this winter. We are busy!!

I am with you. I just want a few days to myself to treat me to whatever and sleep.

100 days until Christmas!

I went to a small town Walmart yesterday and they had all clearance clothing & shoes for $1. The lines were like Black Friday, it was crazy in there.

The last time I ventured into one of my 2 Walmart stores I couldn’t believe the amount of toys on clearance.

We look in the clearance toys all the time for our nieces and nephews.

I realize I totally fell off the planet from here for a bit (and I know I’m out of the running, dang it - my own fault).

Been a busy summer and now I’m in the middle of house hunting for the first time in my adult life. My rent increased 10% last year and another 20% this year (after multiple previous year increases of <5% which were manageable). With this year’s jump, I finally decided enough was enough and that the costs of renting here are now outweighing the benefits. Time to move. Time to buy a house. So… Yikes (!!!) but also Yay!!! And my dad has just told me that, once I’m moved in, I will have a lawnmower! Woooooo!!! (And yes, when I realized I was excited about a lawnmower, I had the “oh gosh… I’m really an adult, aren’t I” moment. Ha!) I’ve literally been in this same complex ever since I finished school and I’ve been in this apartment for 17 years. Soooo there’s some amount of “this is a bit of a scary leap” since I’m doing this on my own but I know it’s time and I’m excited by some of the properties I’ve already seen in my early searches that are actually in my desired price range.

On the other hand, I’m dealing with health issues in my tortie kitty girl, Mew. We’ve discovered hyperthyroidism and a mild heart murmur as a result of two seizure-like episodes she’s experienced over the last few weeks that my vet believes are “vascular events”. We have a thyroid recheck tomorrow (2 weeks on the meds) and I am to schedule an appointment with a cardiologist for sooner than later once we confirm we’re bringing the thyroid issue under control (hopefully that confirmation will come as a result of the appt tomorrow). Little miss Mew is almost 15 and we need to understand cause of these episodes that are scaring her and giving this kitty mama my own “vascular event” when they’ve happened.

With BF coming just around the corner, I knew it was high time for me to pop my head back up around here and check in. Hope the rest of my GD fam is well and ready for our favorite time of the year!

Here’s Mew last night after her most recent episode giving me the “what, mom? I’m fine!” look.

For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

PLEASE send those temps our way - we are breaking records and "may" hit 100 today. :(

Absolute reality check for sure. The wind isn’t helping, either! 🥶🥶🥶

I wondered why I hadn’t seen you post in awhile.

Congrats on making the decision to buy. Just don’t rush! We looked at dozens before we bought. We would drive by before we asked to see inside. Make sure to have inspections and survey. It’s not offensive. (And you Gotta cover your own rear)!

Hope your kitty gets better.

The weather is shifting here in the ATL. Nice crisp mornings but the sun beams by midday it warms up. I am loving it!
