We came home from a friends house last night at 11:00PM to a Fire truck and a bunch of firemen in our front yard. After my heart skipped 3 dozen beats, we found out that a big huge branch from the tree across the street, had fallen. It was huge, and smashed my neighbors car (that used to be an Expedition). If we were not out at our friends house for dinner, my car would also have been scrunched as the branch hit my parking spot and landed just shy of our front lawn (10 feet from our house)....phew!

Let it be a reminder to us all that Mother Nature has her own timing but we should all try to keep up with her by trimming our trees and getting them inspected. I will be calling the city this week to take a look at a big ol' Magnolia tree hanging over my kids room that is looking like i'ts dying.

Whew, what a summer

Wow, this summer has zoomed by. My husband took 2 months off (at my insistence) so he got to be the stay at home dad (I refer to him as my wife....he is a way better wife than me!) and I have been working overtime here at beaducation to pay the bills. And I have been able to pay the bills which feels damn good....woohoo for women owned businesses.

I had to take 2 weeks off last month because I had surgery (don't worry I am fine). Thank goodness my husband was off work to be my nurse as well! So if I have been slow at getting back to emails, I apologize! I am trying to play mad catch up....only to get behind again, because I need a second surgery on Sept 4th. Blah! Oh well, I will survive!

I hope you all had a wonderful summer, and I hope your kids are back in school (if ya got 'em). Mine go back next week!
