Life if just TOO busy. Erin works PT for Starbucks. Keith works days at his job. I work evenings at a local hospital. Mya, well, she just floats along with it all. Bottom line, paths cross so infrequently that the lines of communication get fragmented and need to be repaired at times.

We're home after 2 days with my parents. On Thursday we went to the Renville County fair. When I was young, the fair was THE event of the summer. Well, county fairs are not what they used to be but we did have fun looking at the exhibits. My nephew, Matt, won a trip to the MN State Fair--WAY TO GO!! He did a project on Global Connections or something like that. It was about his trip to Costa Rica. We ate at the Pork producers stand. My oldest brother, who lives on the farm where I grew up, raises pigs. They are mighty tasty!! Jenny (neice), Mya and I went for a ride on the Ferris wheel. It was so quiet and boring on the ride that we decided we needed to scream. We were laughing our fool heads off and people were pointing. Guess you had to be there to understand. Mya had a FREE pony ride. When was the last time you heard of anything free? I was and still am amazed that it was free. Anyway, that was the big event of Thursday.
Left for home just before 5 pm. Uff daa!! Mya and Jenn slept most of the way and Mya screamed for about 30 minutes before we reached Jenn's house. She wanted out of the car seat in the worst way. Long car rides stink in that way. The good news, Charlie (my brother) and Donna gave Mya a new car to play with. It's one of those coupes. I'll get some pics and post them.

Close up of the fan material that will be in the Panda spot on Mya's.
Good Morning Blogger Friends!
I finally made it to JoAnn Fabrics to get fabric for Lily's Chinese themed Quilt.
In the top photos, you see Mya enjoying hers. She won't be putting it on her bed for a few years --she needs to have some idea of how to take proper care of it.
Anyway, hoping to get it going this fall or winter. GM Arlene, Erin and Colette did Mya's. Erin wants to do a quilt for a friend before tackling this one for Lily.

RMJ asked how I was doing. So, I am sharing what is happening at our household.
My Work: Here is what I do for my main job -- JOB. Mainly, I work to help doctors make diagnostic and treatment decisions--lab tech. I am involved in 2 projects at work. One is called "Getting to Know You" where we highlight several employees each month in an effort for all of us to get to know one another on a personal level. A special "Howdy" to any co-workers that drop by here to "Get to Know" me. The other project is a software upgrade. This week I am helping validate the software. I got in late but the go-live is set for mid-Oct so anyone willing to help is welcomed.
Home: Keith and I got a new bedroom set last spring and it was delivered yesterday. The old one is now in Carrie's room so that we will have a guest bedroom for the first time in years. I'll post pics later in the week. The garage is progressing well and we hope it will be finished later this week when the cement guys pour the floor.
Keith: Just finished as HUGE project at work. They celebrated with ice cream sundaes. Keith helped scoop the ice cream. Otherwise, he has many projects and is also busy keeping Mya out of trouble on the evenings that I work.
Erin: Works for our Olympic Blogging Team sponsor- Starbucks, located in a local Target. (Check out link for Olympic sponsor logo.) She is also busy with her boyfriend, Aaron (yep, you can chuckle). He's a great guy and a hockey player to boot (that's for Becky).
Carrie and Jon: Settled into their CO apartment last week and Carrie landed a job with Lifetouch. Woo Hoo! Jon is still in the interview process. Check out Carrie's blog listed in the sidebar for all the info and the latest posting of those beautiful pictures.
Joe and Rachael: Stopped by last week to borrow the computer to fill in a renter's credit. All is well with them. Our grandbunnies (Balmer and Little Bear) are busy making a fort under the sofa and have even chewed a hole in the new boxspring. Naughty bunnies!! Rachael is considering a job change--pet store manager. They are both employed at a local pizza franchise.
Mya: You get enough of her on here!!
Ginger: Goes to the vet on Friday for x-rays and more vaccinations. More on that later.
Gotta run. Late for work.

For those who asked, I used Keith's computer while Mya was messing around. However, I did get a few bellars of "MOM" while she was trying to get it to do what she wanted it to. Her click and drag skills are really improving as are her matching skills. She just needs to learn to spell and upload pix and she'll be a true blogger!!

Today Mya conquered Dora's Big City Adventure. She was so proud to be able to match the ducks to their mommies. It took her quite a while to do that part. The balloons, the bridge and finding the item that Swiper stole, were a bit easier. We gave high fives for accomplishing each one. She only did the easy level but it was hard enough for her.
