September, Already. Where Does the Time Go?

It seems like once the kids are back in school, time goes into warp drive, hurtling ever faster toward the inevitable day that they will be grown and gone and Hugh and I are forced to resort to discussions of denture adhesive and whether or not we are getting enough bran in our diets. I’m not really looking forward to those days although, from what I hear, they are making remarkable strides in the effectiveness of those adhesives.

And, you know, there is a lot to be said for growing old together.

Speaking of which, Hugh and I will celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary this Friday. We aren’t planning any big celebration and, while I would dearly love to celebrate in on the island of Barbados again; we will settle for dinner at a nice restaurant. After all, we have to save our pennies if we are going to spend our 20th anniversary in Europe which is our current goal.

Speaking of goals, The Teenager made the B1 team in volleyball which is the squad that she was hoping to make. We are both happy for her and proud of her and very much looking forward to watching her play in the first tournament this weekend.

Because she has been so busy with volleyball practice, school and maintaining a healthy social life, Tuesdays with The Teenager might be spotty for awhile; she still wants to do it on occasion so, we’ll play it by ear.

The Man-Cub is more than willing to step in during her absence but; I have promised The Teenager that I won’t allow that; TWTT being our special “thing”. I might, however, come up with something similar (yet totally different) for the Cub. We’ll see.

On the topic of the Cub, football practice started last night and the child is thrilled beyond belief to be playing again. He loves the pads and the helmet and the fact that he gets to tackle people. He is not so much on board with being tackled but, you know, that’s how the game is played.

Currently, he is in the running for either the Quarterback or Running Back position; we should know more about that this evening or at tomorrow’s practice. Despite the fact that I cheered for it in High School; I don’t know a lot about football. I am relatively certain that both the Quarterback and the Running Back are major targets as far as being tackled goes and; I am very grateful for the fact that my son runs very, very fast.

Here’s hoping we avoid any major injuries. Also, it is probably time to update our Aflac coverage.

That is all.
