Weekend highs and lows

14 Oct

First off I’d like to give it up to the wonderful weather we’ve had this weekend.  It has been beautiful!

High: Yesterday I went to my school’s Fall Carnival.  One of the high school students I worked with said, “So you’re in high school, right?”  Ha! I’m sure he was just being polite, but that’s a definite confidence booster.


Low: I made two children cry this week.  One was a first grader and one was a fourth grader…either way not great.  Before you think I’m a horrible person, I am not.  I just bring out the best in people!

High: Don’t ever try to rob a store whose employees are marathon runners.

High: Jon Hamm being the wonderful person he is. 

I watched All Good Things yesterday.  What is wrong with that guy?


High/Low: Today I walked in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s.  It’s a high because we are honoring and remembering those we have lost or are currently fighting the battle of Alzheimer’s.  A low because Alzheimer’s is such a debilitating and savage disease.  Listening to the stories of those who talked was heart breaking and familiar. 

  I walked for my grandpa.  He was a wonderful man and did not deserve what Alzheimer’s did to him.  I will continue to walk and raise money so that someday this disease can be eradicated.

High: I just made some pumpkin whoopie pies for a meeting tomorrow.  I had to, of course, taste test them and they are delicious!


I hope everyone has had a great weekend!  Soak it up while you can!
