Any special celebrations, special events coming up

Could you give your cell phone up for a whole month (inspired - oh, that word, Lol - by a today show segment)

Is it almost time for back to school where you are

Probably not a special event to most people but I am excited about going to an Astros game next week.  We generally go to on or two games a year but were not able to make it last year because of family issues so I am really looking forward to it. 

If we had not gotten rid of our home phone I could but without a home phone, no. That is my only contact with some family members. 

Late August.

Any special celebrations, special events coming up -- Going to the wedding of the daughter of my HS best friend tomorrow evening.  She (the daughter) also worked for me for two years when she was in college.  I leave for DC on a business trip on Thursday.

Could you give your cell phone up for a whole month (inspired - oh, that word, Lol - by a today show segment) -- No. We have no land line.

Is it almost time for back to school where you are -- Yes.  The Girl moves into the dorm on the 8th; classes start the 18th.  The Boy has been in band camp all week; classes start the 19th.

DD turns 17, Wow, Where has time gone!  A couple special friends also have birthdays coming up, DD2 camp and a special dinner and fundraiser/gala thing are coming up too.  I don't know, I want to say yes b/c I have a land line but it would probably be a big inconvenience nonetheless, Lol.  Yes, DS returns to school almost a week before the girls start in August.

My birthday next week, get a day off of work for it, my dd's boyfriend's bday, dh is the best man in a wedding, my sister and bil's anniversary, my ds will be honored for being our hometown's "king" a few years ago as it is the 25th anniversary, my dd's 16th bday, my mom's 70th bday.

Probably. I am not the type that is hooked to it all day.

Nope ugghhh lol. It is always bitter sweet having the kids go back to school though as it is just more stuff for the parents too. They go back right after labor day.

Is there a parents day or event at your kid's college before she starts?

Thanks :)

Forgot we have another graduation party and I was awarded the Ass of the Month at work (associate). It took 18 years since the last time I got it (which was employee of the month back then). This time though besides the parking spot (which I already have my own so someone else can park in my regular spot for the month while I park in the special spot) which we had years ago, I get $100 bonus and a lunch with the other asses of the month and my head boss (who elected me) and the CEO.

Ugghhh....I am ready for them to go back as they are getting on each other's nerves but then it will be back to homework, running around for things, needing money every 2 seconds  lol.
