Another year

My birthday was uneventful which at this age is a good thing. I got to the tournament by 7:00 this morning. I judged a round of oratory at 7:30 and then left for my choir rehearsal at 9:00. I came back a little before 1:00 and had a wonderful baked potato with all the trimmings. (butter, cheese, bacon, onion and sour cream). It was very yummy. I then had a meeting with our area coaches regarding issues with one of our state speech organizations. We put together our own proposal for limiting the size of our state tournament. That meeting took an hour and a half.

My kids did o.k. at this tournament. Some did very well. Josh even made it to finals in oratory and came in 6th place. At the awards ceremony, we had some down time as we had to wait for some award lists that they had left out and during that time the entire auditorium sang "Happy Birthday" to me, Josh and another student. Several people wished me a "Happy Birthday" and one of the other coaches even gave me a gift. That was very nice since it was the only present I got. My aunt called to tell me that she was sending a card and money and it would be late. My dad is taking Josh and I to dinner next weekend.

Well, I've got a long day ahead of me tomorrow. I have to go to the early service so I'll be able to get set up for the craft fair. I really hope it goes well. I have a fear that I'll sit there for four hours and not sell a single rosary. Well, good night all.

I am food obsessed and love to hear what you eat. We have similar eating habits. I hate you didn't get more for your birthday. If I were astute, I would have mailed you something to get there before your birthday. Sleep well tonight and good luck at the fair tomorrow. I will be thinking of you and will be chomping at the bit to read how it went. Your friend,

I am really interested in knowing how the craft show goes as well.

I thought of you last night, I was watching the weather channel and I think the show is called Storm Stories, anyway, they were chasing tornadoes and they mentioned Hereford and I yelled "I know that place!" My son looked at me like I was crazy. Ha!

Oh that baked potato sounds lovely....yummmmm

I hope the craft fair went well for you and you sold oodles of rosaries.

Hope you sell all of the rosaries but if not how about at your school or even making lanyards for the teachers ID's to hang on? Just a thought. Happy Birthday belated.
