What excitement - if anything - is going on right now? 

Who do you admire?

What fret or drudgery - if anything - is going on right now?

1. DH and I are planning our summer vacation. Currently deadlocked on a location. 2. Many, many people, for acts of courage large and small. For being inordinately talented, or amazingly dedicated, or consistently uproariously funny, or some combination of the above. Right now, in mourning for a friend and hero, and admiring his stunning level of intellectual curiousity and daring achievments over a life that lasted 88 years but was still too short. 3. Small, nagging things. Nothing big. Thank God.

Probably the end of DS' soccer season, It's simple things that excite me.  Good question jams, a good friend that faces the adversity in her life every single day with a smile and good attitude, I'd also add my dad to this question b/c I do.  There's junk going on right now that I can't wait to get over the hump about...  or as my kids would say, hump-dayeee, Lol.

There will be a lot of chaos between after-school today and about Saturday noon!  That's exciting in a bad way, lol.  But we did just return from Maine which was truly a slice of heaven. 

Who do you admire?

Other than some family,  I'd say the priests I've been privileged to know over my lifetime, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Prof. Charles Ogletree, the little ones I've seen here over the years with physical and intellectual issues.  Not many, not many people!

The annoyingly loud wood chipper on a neighbor's property.

What excitement - if anything - is going on right now?  -- Headed tomorrow to St.L with the HS band to see them perform in the Bands of America regional championship. Get to see a fellow Banshee while I'm there.   I made an offer to a potential new employee yesterday and she accepted, so there is some excitement in store for my office. 

Who do you admire? -- Lots of people.  But lately I've been admiring my niece. She started her family pretty young (20ish?) and she and her husband neither one have formal post-HS education, but they've managed to make a great little home for themselves. They're both very dedicated to each other, to their son, to their jobs, and to their baby girl who is due to make her appearance any day now.

What fret or drudgery - if anything - is going on right now? -- We're down a person at work and the one I just hired won't start for a few weeks yet.  We're working on prep for a storm shelter and the shape/size of our yard is posing problems.

Hmmm...maybe the planning of our vacation next year. It is a lot of work and I am doing the majority of it but I am enjoying it throughly. 

Who do you admire?

Hmmmm...good question. I don't have just one person. Someone with whom has it all together and is able to manage daily life.

Getting through October lol. The running around MIGHT slow down after this month is over lol.

I first read your answer as having the privlege of meeting Bill and Hilary Clinton, et al. Lol.   That's nice you place admiration out there for priests, i do too.  I'd love to see in person - if just a mass - Archbiship Dolan of NY, He's a catholic rock star!

This week has been incredibly slow for me but I agree, I think October has been pretty crazy busy for us too come to think of it.   I'll be pleased to see it end..  But then we'll be planning for the holidays already.

I am getting tired of the back and forth and figuring out who is driving. I think we got spoiled because we always had bus service so there was barely any driving back and forth so this is a change and it is annoying one, IMO. lololol.

Baseball playoffs are always exciting here, we are in the midst of October baseball.  

Who do you admire?

Many different people but mostly those who are kind and honest.

Lots of paperwork, finishing up things and filing them away.

That's a bummer, what happened to the bus service?
