Just some light housekeeping…
– This Saturday was “Bark in the Park,” our local Humane Society’s adoption drive event. We went last year sans BC (who would have gone nuts with all of those dogs there) and had so much fun. So, this year we loaded up everyone in two cars (yes, with Charlie we can’t all fit into one vehicle) and went to Bark in the Park. Charlie spent the first five minutes barking through the national anthem and all of the announcements, then calmed down enough to spend the rest of his time there sniffing every dog’s rear end and literally lying on the ground with the smaller breeds. He’s a sucker for Yorkies, y’all. Ana was unimpressed by the whole thing, but Emmy was in dog heaven, petting all of those pets. Charlie came home and slept for the rest of the day. An afternoon well spent!
– Em and I will be leaving town this Wednesday for the True Woman Conference in Fort Worth. Emmy will not be attending the conference (sad day) but will be spending the time with my parents in Alvarado, which is where I’ll be bunking as well. When I first heard about this conference, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to go and prayed that God would make it really clear if I was supposed to or not. I went to an informational meeting where I was told that as a pastor’s wife I could go for free (!!!), and Wes, before even hearing about the free part, said that I should go and that he would keep Ana and get her back and forth from school. So, I signed up, and I’m SO looking forward to it. And I think Wes is looking forward to a weekend of spoiling Ana. I’ve already heard talk of them going out for Chinese food. (Ana’s favorite food is sticky rice, so she’s super excited!)
– I’m kicking around the idea of doing a fall garage sale. Wes hates them, but we’ve got a garage full of winter clothes that no longer fit the girls. Can someone come out to our house, sort through everything, set it all up, and just give us the money when it’s all done? Anyone?
The washing machine just buzzed at me, and it’s time to leave and pick up Ana from school. Hope your Monday is just as exciting as it is here at the Faulk house!
