Time Flies

I have been so darn busy, no time to blog. Dylan was sick with a nasty cold. Then Trina had it. I had a headache for 3 days straight, then am fighting a cold off and on for about 2 weeks.
Trying to get school done with all the sickness hasn't been easy.
Then we had two days of Derby rallying. Both kids have new divisions, so brand new cars. Trina is now in a Master's car. That is where they lay down and drive, they can see, though it is hard to believe it. Dylan is now in the Super Stock Division. Trina got 2 1st places and 1 2nd place. Dylan got a 1st and 4th and I can't remember the rest. They raced total of 4 rallies. But man, oh, man are their cars heavy. I wasn't feeling well and having to lift those heavy cars didn't help. Derby is such hard work for me. Kids love it, I hate it.
Here are some pics.
Trina is in the left lane, you can barely see the car in the right lane. She won this heat.
Here she is accepting her trophy.
Here she is accepting her 1st place trophy.
Here she is again with another 1st place trophy. Looks like we are making a trip to Akron, Ohio.
Oh joy oh joy. (I am being sarcastic)
Here is Dylan in his car.
You can't even see the other car. He won this heat!!
Here he is with his trophy.
My dh parked the trailer near an ant pile. Of course, we all received bites, even poor Patches. I can't get her to stop itching and can't really afford another vet visit. I am trying to give her more baths with the medicated shampoo they suggested last time. I hate that she has allergies. I wish I had researched more about dogs and their allergies!!!!
I don't know about you.....I will be so glad when this election is over. I am so tired of all the negative ads. I am not voting early. We have already had issues with some of the voting machines. My library has early voting and I can't get a parking spot to go and get the books I need!!! The parking lot is full, they are parking on the grass across the street and up and down the driveway in the library, making it hard to even get around!!!!
I will brave going on Nov. 4th, I have never had to wait more than 5 mins., but every one is telling me that this year it will be different. I don't see how, when it seems like everyone is voting early!!!
Florida is notorious for screwing up the voting process and I am upset about it, but not so upset that I want to do something about it. I haven't got the time!!!
Weather is FINALLY COOLER!!!!!! I am so excited!!!! I even wore a hat when I walked Patches yesterday!!!!
It is late, and I must get some sleep.
God bless you all,

The derbies are such a cool thing to participate in. You're a good mom to let them do it.

Stop by here and say hi on your way to Akron. :-)

Congratulations to your kids, they did a great job at the derby races!
It was wonderful to see an up-dated post from you too : ) I worry when my blogging buddies don't post....

The kids sure do look happy with their trophies!

I haven't voted early either. I'm with you, I've never waited more than 5 minutes or so. I guess we'll see in a couple of days. I've warned Violet to bring a book with her since she has to tag along.
