What A Week!

Sunday was my BEST BOWLING EVER!!! I got a 192, 151 and a 167 for a 510 series!! And all that doped up on Benadryl!

All my renters are paid up.

And we got accredited! I just got the email today. There are still things to do, but our certificate is in the mail. That is such a relief! Our consultant was so impressed with my accomplishments that he asked if I would consider going into the accreditation consultant business.
I rock at my job.

In the past 4 years (with a lot of hard work) you have accomplished far much more than most people would even dream about - congratulations ~!!
Best wishes

JD Turns 16!!

Yikes! I can barely believe that my little guy is now 16 years old!

And you know what, neither can most other people. When they hear I have a kid, they are thinking that I have a lower single digit. They usually say something like, "You have a kid? Awww! How old?" When I tell them, their expression changes from puppy-dog-dreamy to WTF.

We had another bowling party for JD. The kids LOVE it and it is a way to get a bunch of kids together and not in our house.

JD's final game of the night. His first turkey and his highest score ever!

The cake.

It was a great night. Even one of the parents stopped by and joined in the festivities by passing around an embarrassing picture of her little guy (one of JD's guest in a Pikachu costume). I like JD's friends, and their parents!

Can't wait to see pikachu.

Damn... your bowling skillz are madder then mine by some distance. Practice session coming up, methinks.

Happy Birthday to JD...!

Lyvvie, the boy got a hold of the picture and crumpled it up before I could get it. But it was adorable!

Shannon, he's grown several inches since you saw him in Milwaukee!

PastaMasta, nice to see you out and about again!

[Walking back from a working lunch at which we had discussed various procedures that still needed to be implemented or address for the accreditation process, SSB and Sy passed a guy walking a dog]

SSB: I like the coloration on that dog.

Sy: It's brindle.

SSB: Sounds like a character from Lord of the Rings.

Sy: Or something with peanuts in it that you eat at the holidays.

SSB: Like an Infectious Disease Log?

Sy: [gives an ewww face, then laughs]

SSB: Mmmm! Nothing like a Pepperidge Farm Infectious Disease Log to celebrate the holiday season!

I just got a comment from you on my blog- how funny we're reading each other's blogs at the same time.

Sounds like a perfect treat at an office holiday pot luck to me!
