Hey everyone,

I was thinking a weekly chat thread could be fun? Anyone up for one?  Just share what's going on in your life... dyk style.. :)

Let's see... not too much going on this week.  I'm getting my hair cut tomorrow and that's the only real thing on the agenda (outside of work that is).  I'm hoping we can do a few of the things the boys have been wanting to do this summer but that we have not had time for.  Lots to cram in to these last two weeks!

I've been trying to grow a garden this summer.  I have a few peppers growing and my green beans are starting to emerge.  My cucumber plants are not as lucky for some reason.  They are getting huge with thons of flowers on them, but no cucumbers yet.  Fingers crossed that changes soon!

I've been trying to pick up school supplies here and there.  Staples has been my go-to store this year.  I take advantage of their weekly sales and my stockpile of school supplies is really getting big!  Anyone see good sales elsewhere?

I start classes again in 3 weeks.  I'm taking a fuller load this semester than I have before, so that should be interesting.  I'm a bit stressed about how it will all play out, but I'm trying to remain positive!

One big thing I've been up to this summer is running!  Who knew?!?  I started a 5K training program with a friend and we just completed it.  We have our first 5K in two weeks- The Color Run.  I'm really excited! We've been running almost every night for two months so far.  It will be interesting to see how things change once school is back in session.

I'm getting mine cut later today. I'm much better about going regularly since I've been scheduling them every time I go. I also have some hair color on my sink, going to touch up my hair in the morning. I like the ease of DIY, but the roots sure to show a heck of a lot faster. I plan on being lazy, need to do finish all the weeding in the front of the house.

I hope you figure out what's going on with your cucumber plants. I need to learn how to grow veggies, I want to put in a bed next spring. I have the perfect spot for one, just never got around to doing it this year.

I actually have some in the closet that I picked up on clearance last year. Other than that, I'm in denial I need to get all that done. I did order Sean a new packback online (since he's now a die hard Yankees fan). His Mariners one was all beat up anyways.

That is so awesome! My sister and niece did a color run, had a blast. I can't wait to see pictures! I'm so impressed, and wish I had your motivation.
