Accidently posted this the first time to the wrong blog – Oooops, LOL.

Time for another Three Things Thursday hosted by Natalie over at There She Goes.
So what made us smile this week?? Hmmm that’s a hard one. Not too surprising, I know, but to add to that, me and the hubby had a bit of a fight/disagreement which put us both in moods not conducive to smiling. It’s okay, we’ve worked things out, but my mind hasn’t been on smiley things.

Right now (it’s actually Saturday) my son is taking a Merit Badge class to earn his Citizenship of the World which is an eagle required merit badge. Don’t know if he’d consider that something to smile about or not (he’s doesn’t smile about much, none of us do really), but I’m proud of him for deciding to go for his eagle (following earning Life).

My son is also getting ready to earn his next belt level in Martial Arts. He actualy tests on Monday so I’ll let you kow next Thursday how he does.


How is everyone’s Tuesday going so far?  

I’m sitting here trying to think of something to “chat” about.  It’s another one of those ‘life as usual’ weeks.

I’ve been trying to do something called the #cinchChallenge (It has to do with Social Media posting foryou Direct Sales businesss).  Today we were suppose to post about our businesses for Job Action Day. So I posted these.

Anotther day had us posting an A/B/C/D image:

And another day asked us to post our favorite quick/easy week/school night recipe… I went with home made soup (with homemade broth made from the trimmings of vegetables (I shared this recipe once a while back- What to do with vegetable scraps).

Tonight is the last class for the CPA (Citizens Police Academy) I’ve been taking…  We’ll be learning. about defensive tactics and such, and then doing some scenarios.

I also learned that my son will be doing belt testing (for his Orange belt) next Monday.  He’s also been working out to get ready for then annual troop backpacking campout coming up in a couple weeks.

Guess that’s pretty much it for me.  What’s been going on with you all??  Hope you’re all having a Terrific Tuesday.  

Time for another Three Things Thursday.

The other day, the arm rest snapped off of The Hubby’s wheelchair. Thankfully we were able to find a temporary fix today, until the actual part needed comes in.

The son has been working on his next Kata as well as his defense moves (and a few other things) to get ready to test for his next belt.
The Citizen Police Academy that The Wife is taking will soon be drawing to a close…. Just a few more weeeks left till “graduation day”.

Joining Natalie (from There She Goes), after a long absence, for Three Things Thursday.

I think the actual idea is to list three things that made us smile this last week, but we’re not a family smilers so I’m changing this up abit to be three things that happened this week.

Well for starters, this lsat week was Sukkot for us.  We did go to a sukkah party on Sunday and were able to partake of nourishment within said sukkah.

Another thing that hasn’t actually happened yet but it is related to something that happened this last week…  After a recent visit to the dentist, my son has an appointment to be evaluated to see if he needs to have his wisom (or 3rd molars) removed.  Wouldn’t surprise me if he did – both me and The Husband have had to have ours removed when we were about his age.

And finally, there was the National Night Out which, really, I only went to as the rest of the familly isn’t into the whole Fire/EMS/Police scene like I am.

Wishing you all a Blessed and Wonderful weekend.  

Sorry – Jumping in here a day late on the Tuesday Chatter…. Do I get an  “A for effort” for actually making it this week, at. all?!?  Not 100% sure I made it last week or if I ended up (inadvertently) blowing it off last week.

Really, if I’m to be honest, there isn’t much to chat about these days.  Not really anything going on.  Kinda same ole same ole, so I guess me missing weeks here and there isn’t that big a big deal.

We are in the midst of Sukkot here (which I guess could best be described as being like the christian holiday of Pentacost or Tabernacles.

Hubby’s eyes are doing good.  A little back history, he had had cataract surgery on both eyes (different months) a while back.  Recovery of both eyes has gone quite well.

The Son continues to do well in school.

For personal reasons, I decided to stop doing the Farm & Art Market thing I was doing on Thursdays….  This does’t mean that I’ve stopped supporting the event and would hope that if you are in the Tucson area on a Thursday evening you would stop by and check out the event.

Well I guess that pretty well wraps it up for this week.  Hope you are all having a wonderful & blessed week thus far.

Hi,  Hello there…. Not a lot of time chat.  Getting ready to head off to my Tuesday evening Citizen Police Academy class.  I want to say we’re close to half- way through (give or take).

The driving portion of the course, the part where we actually get to try our hand at driving an actual police car (on a closed course, of course) is coming soon.  I keep wondering if I’ll have the courage to actually drive this time around instead of chickening out like I did last time.   I did ride with one of the officers who was also on the course (acting as a “backup officer”) which turned out to be an…ummmmm….interesting (yeah, that works) ride.  Perhaps I’ll share more on that later (when I have more time).

While I’m doing my CPA (see above) class the son will be doing his scout thing, working towards his Life Rank (well maybe not directly, but that’s his next rank before he starts his journey to Eagle (Yep,  He’s decided to go for broke, I mean Eagle).

Well, time to get myself together and get out of here.  Wishing you all a wonderful & blessed rest of the week.

Be sure and Join Eugenia (our host for Tuesday Chatter) over at Brew N Spew.

Trying to get back into the swing of posting again (at least back to where I was before when I was posting, regularly, for challenges and such – Let’s see how it goes…..

Honestly, you haven’t missed a whole lot since I last posted.  Son is still in martial arts and in scouts (actually have a bit of news on that front), and is still doing fine in school. I’m still doing Mary Kay and Gemstra/Jewelscent, still volunteering with the local police department, and still doing the other volunteer type  stuff I do.  Hubby well he’s still doing his stuff to (mostly train & synagogue type stuff).So pretty boring all in all.

I mentioned my son and scouts…  He is currently at the “Star Scout” rank and is working on earning his Life.  He has to be a Star Scout for 6 months (which he’ll have done sometime in October) plus has to be in his current position (office) for 6 months (that’ll be done by the time the next court of honor rolls around).  The only thing he really has to get done is to get both his service hours as well as conservation hours in and he’ll earn his Life Rank (after, of course completing all the board review and other required meetings)….  Then he starts the final journey to earning his Eagle.   Need to find some ways for him to earn his conservation hours…  and time to start thinking about what he might want to do for his Eagle project.

That’s pretty much it for us…  What’s been going on with you all.
