What's Going On

Here's what's going on in our neck of the woods.
Please pretend to be interested.

  • We made it in the Prosper Press again this week. The boys think we're famous.

  • The weather has been BEAUTIFUL here lately. Especially on the weekends. This past weekend, Ryan and I spent all day Saturday hanging out with friends at their pool watching a little March Madness and later cooked steaks on the grill. We were determined to eat outside...eventhough the temp dropped about 15 degrees when the sun went down. Yes, I am wearing an Auburn sweatshirt. That's all my friend had. Ryan was not happy.

  • Baseball is in full swing here at Casa de Soladay. For real. We have practices and games during the week and a tournament nearly every weekend. If I didn't keep a calendar, I would be lost. Ryan tries to get me to keep all my dates in my phone, but I'm old school. I have to have an actual calendar that I can write on. Arcaic. I know. Am I the only one that still uses an actual calender?

  • We decided to sign another year lease on our house. The plan was to buy after 1 year, but the people renting our lease house needed a little longer to build up their credit in order to buy house, and we need them to buy our house so we can buy the kind of house we really want to buy. We LOVE the home we're renting, but after living in it for awhile, we have realized that we need 1 more bedroom, and a 3 car garage is a must. All we know right now is that we're definitely staying in Prosper (preferrably in the same neighborhood), but haven't decided if we want to buy an existing house or buy a lot and build. Here's to another year of renting!
  • I have been consummed with planning the golf tournament. I want everything to be perfect. I want Ed to be proud. The response has been overwhelming. I have even received emails from people in New York wanting information. Just goes to show how loved Ed is. On a side note, when we were at the funeral home in New York, the funeral director told us that he and his wife had lost their son in a car accident when he was very young and in order to keep his memory alive, they light a candle in rememberance of him everytime their family gets together. Carol and I loved the idea, so when she was recently in town, I suprised her with our own memory candle. We let it burn all evening long. The candleholder and sand have sentamental value as it was used to hold Ryan's and my unity candle at our wedding, a time when Ed was with us. Sometimes after the boys go to bed, Ryan and I light it and just sit on the couch and talk about Ed. Miss him so much. It still doesn't seem real.

That's it, my friends.
I hope you had a wonderful Thursday,
and have a fantastic weekend!!!

It seems like when one sport season ends, another one is right there to keep you insane!
I have a calendar to write on and a dry erase board but my husband has gotten me many electronic daytimers and I never use them.

I just printed out calendars yesterday for a project and I have one on the fridge. I like to see it everyday so I know what's going on.

Stacey said...

It's still a calendar for me, too. Gotta have it in front of me, and looking it up in my phone would be too much work. lol Too many buttons to push.

Love the idea of the candle.

Love the candle idea - so neat and a great way to honor Ed! Can't wait to hear how the tournament comes together! I am sure it will be great!!

We feel weird about not owning, too. Just doesn't make sense right now!

Calendar.....paper......old school.
