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.
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.
Joining in on the Tuesday Chatter, hosted by Eugenia over at Brew N Spew… First off, an apology for being so late in the day getting this done. I know I usually do my Tuesday Chatter posting first thing in the morning. This morning, however, I had another post that I needed to finish and turned in to have it checked over for approval. This will be posted over on my Public Safety blog once I receive approval that everything looks good.
I did attempt to sleep in a bit this morning (succeeded to some degree) and took a short nap early in the afternoon — This is in preparation for my swing shift ridealong on Thursday. Thanks to a certain 4-legged child (Meekah KItty) I am often up sometime around 4 in the morning – not very good if you’re trying to stay up past midnight.
This week, The Son is off at Summer Camp – His 5th year going… You could say he’s a veteran. I’m hoping he’ll take on some leadership qualities and help the younger scouts out – He did go as a Junior Counselor last (did quite well infact) but decided not to do it this year. I have to take a moment here to toot my “Proud Mamma” horn – Our son has decided that he wants to go ahead and try for his Eagle rank. Previous to this he had not shown much of an interest in doing so and we haven’t been pushing it. I know earning his Eagle rank won’t be without some difficulty. Earning the Eagle rank can be difficult under normal circumstances and, no doubt, the autism will be an added difficulty in some ways but I believe he can do it if he applies himself and works hard. The hardest part is mostly likely going to be spearheading (believe that’s the right word) his Eagle project…. But first there’s his Life rank to earn (hoping by the Fall Court of Honor, if not then next Spring).
Everything is pretty well status quo with The Hubby. Dealing with usual insurance mess… Uggghhh what a disaster – always something.
And that concludes my Tuesday Chatter for the week. Wishing everyone a wonderful blessed week ahead. See y’all again next week

Ohhh My Gosh — Friday already?!? How did I manage to skip a day in blogging and over look the Three Things Thursday challenge.
Sorry to say I haven’t been following the whole bombing in Manchester super closely but not for lack of caring and as Natalie says in her post (link above) it is hard to smile when things like that are happening.
Speaking of smiles and blogging, I am at a decision making point – There are two smile challenges that I do on this blog. Both the Three Things Thursday hosted by Natalie and the Weekly Smile hosted by Trent… Originally I was doing the weekly smile on my personal blog Jottings and Writings but then I moved it over here as I felt I needed a way to have more content. Now I’m wondering if I should move it back or if I should move this one over there…. Uggghhhh Decisions, Decisions.
That being said, 3 things for this week:
1) Cataract surgery for the Husband’s second eye has been approved and has been scheduled for July.
2). I am going in for my first volunteer gig this next week…. And have a ridealong scheduled the same day – Going to be a busy day that one, LOL, but I’m looking forward.
3). The Son is plugging a way with his Math and is almost done with English. We got him signed up for summer school at a new school that we’re looking at for next near. It’s online based but at a physical school so there is the benifit of having teachers to help. We actually looked at this school last year but were pushed into a different school because, well, Family 😕😒😑. It’s looking like this new school may very well be a good fit for the son to continue his High School education…. That’s what the summer school is about – to see how he does and what he (and we) thinks.
Wishing everyone a Wonderful, Blessed, and Happy weekend.
