The storm is over

Wow, its Sunday the 7th of September already? Where the heck did this last week go? I really don't even know what day it is.

I haven't posted 2 weeks and so much has happened. The DNC went ok, not great, but we made it through. The CNN Grill, which took over our restaurant, was voted in the best top 5 things of the DNC. How cool is that? What an amazing experience to be able to be a part of all of it too! I met some really cool people too while they were here. Oh not to mention all the celebrities that came in, Ashley Judd, Charlize Theron, Charles Barkley, Caroline Kennedy and her family, Maria Shriver and so many more. The hours were long, but in the end it turned out to be a blast. Unfortunately, Brooklyn's now looks like a tornado came through and we are still cleaning up. That's not so cool.

I'm not usually one to toot my own horn or anything, but during the DNC, I did such an amazing job that a few people wanted me to go out to St. Paul and help out for the RNC. EXCITING!!! Well, the fact that I was asked, my trip was paid for, I was paid and I had a great time was amazing. The Republican party was another story, sorry, I'm voting Democratic. It was just a whole other world with Republicans. All in all, the experience was great and I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat. I did miss my kids and my husband, but I was so busy the entire time, I really couldn't think about them.

Oh, one more thing, I almost forgot about my sisters wedding! That was the day after the DNC. What a busy couple of weeks I've had! I'm so glad they're over. The wedding was great, she looked beautiful as ever and my kids did great. Only Ava was in the wedding, the boys sat with Daddy and watched and ate snacks. Ava did great, she and her cousin walked down the aisle holding hands, of course they didn't throw any pedals out, but they made it down the aisle. She was a little ansy and wouldn't stand still, but she did great. Grandma took them home after and watched them until we made it home. It was fun. First picture is of me and my best friend Desiree, second is of Emma and Ava, the flower girls. I can't believe I don't have one of me and my sisters! oops

Whew, I did mention that my stress level has gone down a little. But we are putting the house on the market this tuesday. UGH! Moving again, and we still haven't decided where. I'd love to stay here, but Daddy wants to buy some property back in Iowa. Oh, what do we do? I'm torn and lost about it all.
