1. ...glad to see I'm alive.
2. ...waiting to read about the exciting things going on here that has kept me away from blogging.
3. ...thinking it's going to be a post on Big 80's music because of the title.
4. All of the above.
The other day my brother texted me this.
September is always a "kick my butt" sort of month, but it seemed to continue right into October this year. It's all good, though.
When I heard the lyrics in the song used for the title of this post, I said to myself, "That's a good title for my next blog post." I looked up the definition of "hoopla" just to make sure.
Hoopla: Excitement surrounding an event or situation, especially when considered to be unnecessary fuss.
There definitely was excitement and unnecessary fuss lately, but mostly taxi driving on my end.
Some highlights include, but are not limited to:
* Billy, who started Scholastic Scholars at his school. He won't let me come watch the competitions, though. I guess he thinks I will cause him to get stage fright.
|Baton Rouge, Baton Rouge!
*Mary is finishing cross country this Tuesday, and is in the midst of football and parade season for marching band.
Needless to say, we don't see her much.
*Ann is happy we let her start the cello at school. It's almost as big as she is.
*Matthew just finished his first sport....soccer. How pumped we all were at his first game when he "booted a screamer right into the back of the net!" (that sentence was penned by proud big brother, Billy.)
|Matt with his "coach"
|Happy Birthday, Dad.
*I started my new part time job and I love it. I am a teacher's assistant at Ann and Matthew's school.
Dream-come-true job, I tell you. I want to tell you about it in a post all on it's own, so stay tuned.
That's a wrap on my re-entry post. Now you can't...... "Say you don't know me, or recognize my face."
