Summer Memories: PLEASE SHARE/:POST!

6 replies • Last post

Hello CL Friends,

Sorry I have been MIA for a lot of this summer. I truly miss it here, and I miss all you wonderful CL members. So I thought we could chat a bit and share some of what you did with your summer. Did anyone go on vacation? To the beach or pool? You know. Write "what I did on my summer vacation." So what have you all been doing these past three months?

For me, one of my big events is coming up on Saturday. I am going to the Minnesota State Fair with my three handsome and highly talented and above-average in every way sons! Wink We are going to go do some people watching and go through all the buildings, they might go on some rides, and we will definitely find some good FOOD! Everything at the Minnesota State Fair is "on a stick," lol. I will try to remember some and list so you will know what I mean. But a lot of foods (like your basic corn dog or pronto pup) they put on a stick!

Because of this theme, the concert we are attending is called "Minnesota on a Stick." The concert will feature SIX bands who have Minnesota Roots, including Brother Ali and Cloud Cult (who I cannot WAIT to see!). I will list the others later, plus some examples of the yummy (and unusual) foods on and off that stick, lol.

So what has been happening in YOUR world, friends? PLEASE post here to help me catch up, cuz I just MISS YOU all! Smile

I have had a pretty decent summer, other than I have been away from my family most of it. I ended up taking a job down state in the Detroit area, and was driving 100 miles on Monday mornings to work down there Monday through Friday. Coming home was always great, but leaving sucked.

I got transferred up home in August, so I am home a bunch now. But we haven't done anything really all that fun.

I am actually stoked for fall. I love that time of the year up here, and am happy I will get to spend it with my family.

I've been shivering through winter here, you insensitive so and so! Angry

Just kidding! Beer

We just had father's day on Sunday. My kids jumped on our bed and woke me up before 7am as they thought that would be something I'd really like! They both made me a beautiful card each that showcased their unique drawing talents. I took them out to lunch, then home to have a game of Ticket to Ride, then later in the afternoon we watched How to Tame Your Dragon 2 at the movies. So all in all it was a fantastic day for the kids. And me of course! lol

'Slim, glad you are home now! That had to be a tough time.

CL-Ed sorry you are shivering through winter. Fall is just okay, because very bittersweet for me - I know what is coming. Summer is definitely my favorite season, and it just doesn't last long enough.

Your Father's Day sounds like fun. So cute when the kids are little. Soon they will have jobs and be taking you out and PAYING for a nice brunch, lol. Or cooking you breakfast in bed. I remember those days when I would take us all out for my birthday. lol Now they are spoiling me each year on Mother's Day and birthday. But I do miss those days. Enjoy while you can! Smile

I know it isn't summer anymore, but I really want to see Interstellar. Is anyone else pumped up to see this one?

I'm set to go see it on Saturday night. It will be the first non-kids movie that I have seen at the cinema for ages.
