The past few weeks have been a lot of fun, but at the same time quite stressful between my midterm papers and readings and doing things for CKI.
On Oct 1, a group of us went down to Texas Tech for our CKI Fall Rally. My group went to an animal shelter for volunteer for a few hours. There was a sweet puppy begging me to bring her home:
Will actually ran in the Homecoming 5k and got 3rd in his age division!
After we were done with the parade, I realized this would be our last Homecoming unless we made a special trip up here, which I can't see us doing for a LONG time. You see, our town has "Fair on the Square" every 4th of July and every Homecoming. Fair on the Square is where a ton of vendors set up booths around our old town square and sell everything from fair corndogs to knock-off purses to hand-made crafts. It's really cool, but since we grew up around it we haven't really gone in several years. When I realized this would be our last in a while, I asked Will to go with me. We took Dawson and walked around for a while before leaving. It was fun and made me reminisce about childhood- we actually used to live across the street from the square, so we could just walk up and enjoy the parade and Fair on the Square.
Dawson wanted a hotdog:
That night we had a tailgate planned with one of the fratternities, but they ended up not bringing a grill. No worries, we loaded everyone/thing up into the beds of two trucks and took them all home and just grilled there. Boomer and Sheba had a fun time with everyone.
And, just 'cause they're cute:
When I get off work today, we're going to the gym and then I think I'm hanging out with my bestie Brandy. Tomorrow Will decided to kill my dreams of sleeping in past 8 am and signed up for another 5k, then I'm going to work with a pet savers group to work with animals for a few hours, THEN I get to go usher for a symphony for a fundraiser for CKI. Church and homework will await me Sunday.
What are your plans for the weekend?
