First of all, let me tell you that Eddie and I had a terrific time with his sisters at their homecoming/reunion in Bowie last weekend!

As for the reunion itself, it was great to see Eddie reunite with his old friends and interact with them after so many years. Occasionally, he would turn to me and just grin, like a little kid. He had so much fun!

We made two runs across the Red River to The Peach Orchard, one of his old haunts where they only serve fried foods. (Seriously!?!?!?! See the menu on the wall? All fried.....catfish, shrimp, oysters, chicken or steak fingers....)

And STUDYING was a huge priority this week! I finally finished my last course of the seven 30-hour courses that are required in order to make application to take the state's real estate licensing exam. Woohoo! Today, all those beautiful certificates of completion get mailed off to the Texas Real Estate Commission for certification. Once that is done, I will be able to file a formal application to take the Big Test! I am getting there ~ slowly, but surely.
So, blogging got a bit neglected this week. It's not the first time ~ and it won't be the last! But, I'm sure most of you can relate....
And here it is....October! My focus now shifts to a whole new "to do" list. My stepdaughter's wedding is just five short weeks away and it's time to do some serious shopping for a dress. Sons, Ben and Sam, are moving into their first apartment this weekend and I promised to help....at least that way, I can be sure there is liner in their kitchen cabinets (I don't think boys care too much about this sort of thing, but it's important to me). I need to sign up for a crash prep course in Austin for the big real estate test....and take the test! And there's more Fall and Halloween decor to drag out and put up.....
I just made myself tired writing it all down! Guess it's time to get busy....
Have a fabulous Friday!
