Big day..Rock Band Beatles arrived from ANC --ET brought it home with him as he was over there for a Cross-Country trip.
Dick Peck & Granddaughter...Dick has been a HUGE help in encouraging Jr. to complete the work and massive amounts of paperwork required to become an Eagle Scout...all the badges and requirements were done when he was 12 and 13. Just the project was left. I think the paperwork is in order and on the way to being approved!! YAY!! Nobody can remember an Eagle Scout EVER in the Aleutians....the council has no official records, all I've got is talking to people that have lived here 40, 50, 60, even 80 years.
I took CB to the beach for a last quick walk and to feed the birds with bread that he won't be needing. There was a ton of sea glass...I mean, it was horrible there was NONE and nobody need waste their time going to any beach in town --or out the road looking for sea glass :)
This is what I see from my back window of the spawned-out salmon...not very pretty, but it's the circle of life.
Manderzz has a ridiculous amount of new clothes this year...she's having a lot of fun with them!
She's 11 and can buy on ebay and knows how to shop, even find discount codes, signs in and applies them...she's a shopping prodigy, am I proud?? Not sure.
There was a little going away party for me this AM at the staff meeting...makes me sad, but not sad enough to stay! I have stuff to do! :) My boss made me a monkey to match the other one she gave me several months ago and an adorable little scrapbook of pics from the past 3-4 years --as long as she's been here. Not bossy, not "the big boss", not my direct supervisor boss --the regular boss...getting the idea...lots of bosses!
I appreciate the gifts and the party a lot, they were homemade and adorable!
I'm trying to tie up loose ends here in the office and looking forward to all my projects and even more projects AFTER our 16day vacation. We're going to pick up a puppy from Palmer on the return, what a better time to get a dog, I'll be home with him.
CB is leaving in a couple hours...the weather is looking decent enough...whewww.
2 kids are sick now...It's going to be a longggggg winter with many colds I fear.
I'm busy for the next several nights too, cna't get my hair done until Saturday. I'm sporting a messy Sarah-Palin bun sort of crazy hair-do.....I NEED to be repaired :)
Sweet Irene brought my hungry kids a large portion of pirok last night (fish pie) Very excellent timing as I napped instead of making dinner and hung out with CB for awhile before he took off for vacation...no more hanging out until mid-October when we get back from our vacation...
