"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

50 cal, 357 magnum, 45...

in other words, Random Bullets...
  • Came down to my parents on Monday so Gabe could join in swimming lessons and Joey could help out with them.
  • Drove Marty home from my parents' house Tuesday night (got home at 11:30pm) so I could get him to church to leave for his 3 day volunteer trip at 8:15 this morning. The high school and middle school youth groups are doing volunteer work at a Lutheran Services for the Aging facility.
  • After I dropped him off, I took a moment to go by Joey and Gabe's school to fill out the form to be an approved volunteer again this year. 
  • Did I tell you Marty is going to be in the Naval ROTC program at his high school this year?
  • OMFG, high school?!?!?! How did that happen?
  • Gabe is swimming...not very far but he is swimming. Trip to parents' for swimming lessons SUCCESS
  • Joey has been helping my mom teach swimming this week. He's also helped mow the lawn and clean up a rental house they own. He is definitely earning the moolah my mom promised him.
  • Need to get home and sew. Have to finish a few things before I leave for BlogHer in a week...eeek, I'm so unprepared.
  • I leave for BlogHer in a week...squeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  • I'm traveling to BlogHer with two of my best friends in the whole wide world...can't wait!
  • While in San Diego, I will get to see one of my best friends from college and meet his wife for the first time.
  • I miss my husband when I'm not with him. I miss him right now.
  • I should be in bed but I'm writing this and then I have a book calling my name.
  • I may need a nap again tomorrow.
What's your week been like...random bullets please!
