End of Summer and a Goal Report

Summer ended this week for us in Mundelein.  School started for the middle school and high school on last Wednesday.

Last Friday, Saturday and Sunday we got new siding all around our house.  The new siding is vinyl and insulated.  Let's hope it helps with those bills.

I spent the day at my in-laws while they got new gutters installed.  It was nice.  I got fed pretty well.  I asked my mother-in-law to call me every day and talk Greek to me.  I don't know, but I think it might help.

My goal report is thus:

  1. Learn Greek - as I said, I spent the day with my in-laws and asked for daily calls.  I still need to work harder on it though.
  2. Gold JtE - we had our first Commissioner meeting on Tuesday.  We are closer than we were last year at this time.  It is still looking good.
  3. New Job - no change and NSTR (nothing significant to report)
  4. Quarterly Dates - we're making plans to take Teeny back to Boston and we are going to drive back alone, with a hotel stop in the middle.
I have no "official" writing goals this year, but what writing I'm working on and what I've done will be reported on Illini6.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love you so much. You are a doll. Did you get blue siding again; it looks like it. You house looks wonderful; love the flag in front. We have a roll up flag on the garage; makes it a lot easier for us old folk; except sometimes it rolls itself up ahead of time. This way we can get it up b4 dusk and bad weather. So Teenie is back already, wow. Did she ever get her card; which I forget to give her and was on Buschettes(sp?) table, the day of the party??? How can I get a look at your latest story? Love you and looking forward to more "Flowers" xoxoxox Auntie Char

The house is tan-ish.
We've had the flag since my Dad and brothers put it up as a going away present when I went to Afghanistan (guess we should have you over more often).
IDK if Christina got her card.
My latest story will be in a book that will be published in October. I'll let you know more when it comes out.
