My crazy month and a half is about to come to a close. I'm sure some busy work will find its way to me!
I'm still deciding if this will be the longest post or if I will break them up a bit.
Just decided....Long post wins! I'll just get er dun!!!
I went to a girls weekend w/my sisters and some friends and we had a good time. A few of us went on a run in Midway for a little pre Ragnar change of scenery training. In hind sight, I'm not sure it helped that much.

The next weekend was my Mom and Dads big event and it went over great. I didn't see many of the people and spent most of my time doing food stuff but it wasn't my party so that is were I belonged. I was grateful for Angi staying and manning the kitchen though so we didn't have so much cleanup. She didn't realize when she came to see the decor that she would get stuck there. Sign of a true friend I suppose. Speaking of Decor, they did such a great job and it was so cute but I don't have many pics. I have to get those from Susie Q.
My Mom and Dad are better than YOURS!
I hate those kind of bumper stickers, we all know the ones about the grand kids being cuter than your, I want to punch those people "in tha face"!
Next Day : We took the kids to Black Island Farms. Finally we got Logan to his pick of place for his B-day almost a month later. It was fun but not like the 2 years past. I needed my Boos (ha ha parks and Rec) and Dave wanted to boo hoo that he was forced through the torture of it all. He is a champ though and a very patient man. Unfortunately the kids we took with us had not been fed lunch (tattle tattle) so we had some hungry little hippos on our hands. We finally got them food on our way home and it was a hard fought battle of whether their little bods would eat or sleep on the way home. Mostly the eat won.

We got medals at the end which I find very non useful. I wondered if i could melt mine down and make something useful like a spoon from it. I threw away my last medal I got from some sort of race. Guess I could at least recycle this one. Sam took it to show and tell today at school which i thought was cute.
I don't even have time to have an adult Halloween party this year, which I am sad about. I have had 3 youth halloweenish things and then a school one, a family one this weekend along w/the ward one which includes a trunk or treat. I hate trunk or treats, I think they are for the fat and lazy but if I am fat and lazy I still hate them so I change my mind and say they are for the lame!
I guess I have to do Neves pty on Sunday since I am out of other days and then its Halloween and this year I am saying GOOD RIDDANCE to you OCTOBER!!! First I need to go get some halloween candy and get my kids some costumes. Details, details.
Post Script-My little Nevey turns 3 tomorrow. Where does time go? September and October gobble it up, that's where!!!!
Post Script Surplus- I added some excerpts from the book but mostly on us psychotic racers will find them entertaining or even understandable.
Lisa: Just gotta keep moving cause if the tiredness hits you, thats when you get tired.
April: Seriously if I get hit, I'm gonna die
Brent to Keri: I don't think you need anymore wine - you are already kinda whooooo
Brian to Keri: I feel like I've known you pretty well since day 1
Dave: Next time Brian is bringing the fryer!
Ron to Keri: Externally I'm fine, but internally that hurt.
Keri: I'm just gonna strip down right here.
April: I can't do that - the rolls make me hungry
Dave: Whats the ending coordinates of her run
Angi: I think it ends right in hell
Lisa: look at that girl she is doing so good
April: tell her she sucks though, just to break her spirit
Matt: I tried some Brooks on but they were too provocative for me
Matt: If I am standing there stopped, I want you to swerve over and hit me!
