OK, so I'm trying to get into the habit of writing everyday as practice for National Novel Writing Month. Hey, I didn't say it would be GOOD...I just said I'm trying to write every day!!!

Went to my first Huskers game the other day. It's alway exciting to go to a stadium and see the passion of the fans firsthand. I must say that Husker fans are some of the most loyal and gracious fans I've ever met. Who else would stay in the stadium as their team was being blown out? They were also kind to me as an Oklahoma State fan. They have a tradition here of releasing red balloons when a touchdown is scored. It would have been cool to see that happen...but the fans were so discouraged they would let the balloons go if the Huskers just got a first down!

My winning streak (in golf) against my father-in-law only last three days. We played again at Bay Hills Golf Course in Plattsmouth. I was massacred. The course is pretty, but deceiving. The first couple of holes make it look like a pretty flat course. The rest of them are up and down...hilly as I've every seen! I'm glad I didn't walk it! It was a beautiful course, but hard. I should have put my driver away on several holes and played safe!!!

The teens and their families were supposed to make the annual trek to Vala's Pumpkin Patch this afternoon, but we were rained out. I was kinda disappointed, because the kids really seem to enjoy going out there, and there were at least four or five that were bringing their friends. I also enjoyed the time because I got to talk with some of the parents around the campfire last year, and I really enjoyed that time.

NanoWriMo? I don't know. I'm so busy right now I don't know if I really want to tackle it. Give me a week and I'll let you know.

Last year there was an Omaha group that met up during the event. I didn't have the chance to meet up with them, but I think it would've been neat.

Sorry to hear about the lost wallet. Did you ever find it?

Vala's! I loved going out there with the teens and other parents. Just a few more years and I'll have 2 kids in the youth group to haul out there.
