I know, I know...

I said I'd put up another giveaway this past weekend, but I have another Giveaway ending Wednesday, so I'm waiting. While you wait for that new Giveaway (and it's AWESOME, btw!!!) go enter the ones I've already posted. They're all together under the Giveaways link at the top! Easy peasy!

Today is also Columbus Day, and the day we'd already planned to start school again, so we're going to learn about Columbus' trip to America! I'll put more on my homeschool blog if you're interested. LOL

We're already 1/3 of the way through this month! Where is time going? It's like it's passing WAY too quickly, and I'm missing it... Well, my daughter didn't get the costume she was supposed to, so we've decided to go with a different one entirely. We have to MAKE it. Not a really big deal, but we're running out of time. If not for the costume contest at karate, we'd just buy a simple costume and be done with it. But we have EVENTS to go to... that sounds so funny! There's the costume party at karate... a big haunted house and party at our local Shriners Temple, and of course actually going out to Trick-or-Treat/Trunk-or-Treat... BUT, we always have a blast! And as long as she's having fun, we'll continue! I'll give you a hint about her costume... It's a famous scene from an older "scary" movie... The movie wasn't really scary... LOL I guess for the 1930's it was. :)

I'm also working on the blog hop I mentioned the other day. Coming up with a button image (I have the name and concept) and then once I have that, setting it up won't be a big deal. Hoping to start it this weekend! (It will be a Sunday hop) and I'll ask to have it placed in the hop libraries and directories I know about, so we can get a lot of participation! Pretty excited! Also thinking about having a blog of the week that will be in the required follows. Just throwing out some ideas. :) Hope you're all having a great Monday!!! User: earl53

EDIT: Would you believe I forgot all about the Oktoberfest karate demo?! And on top of all of this, she's going to karate 5 days a week in preparation for a tournament in November! Wow...
