How come the kids now can see Mr. Snuffleupagus and when we were little everyone thought Big Bird was crazy and making him up.

So tonight Rachel, Aysha and Lindsey were sitting at the table eating dinner while I was cleaning up in the kitchen. One of them let out a burp which started the laughter and then they all started to burp. I hear, "mine is the loudest". I'm sorry but they aren't allowed to say something like that in front of me. I downed a few huge gulps from my water bottle and showed them what a real burp is. There is no comparison to theirs and mine...some old talents just never go away.

Where did the summer go? I think this summer has flown by faster than any other in a very long time. My kids start back on Sept 3rd and they are both ready to go. Lindsey will be in the 9th grade and I'm crossing my fingers that this will be her year to excel..I'll take C's but she is an A/B student with F's...not okay. Rachel will do Kindergarten again with advanced reading and math. Friday morning we leave for Reno and will be back Monday night. Maybe I will win millions on the slot machines...you never know.

It's been a long and tiresome week. I had my ass kicked so bad in training on Wed. that it was difficult to walk yesterday but I love the pain because I know it is working. Mike and I are leaving for Canada tomorrow morning and just spending one night. We will have the whole day to play, shop, explore and eat good food. We usually go to Granville Island after we check out of our hotel and will probably do that again this year. That place is awesome-here is an pretty picture of Vancouver.

I have 150 or so more pages in my book..I can hardly stand it but I do have to sleep at night. The past two mornings I have woken up having dreamt about vampires and werewolves. When I was pushing snooze I had convinced myself I could keep sleeping because it was okay with the vampires.

We are going to Reno on Aug. 22nd and coming back Monday morning the 25th. It will be a quick trip but a road trip for the kids so they will enjoy it. We are going down to visit Mike's son. Our room is booked at Circus Circus so there will be kid friendly entertainment while mom has some adult entertainment in front of a slot machine with free cocktails.
