It’s been about two months into the new job and it has been as well as could be expected. Being back at TD has been a relief. Our money problems haven’t gone away as of yet, but the long term view is definitely brighter than where it was headed. I spent last week in training for work and although that was awesome for the job, the out of pocket expenses have severely affected all things moolah-wise. That will all be better once the reimbursement comes through. It’s just tough getting through what the past 6-8 months of working for myself did to us as a family.
My training has been going great for Philly. The fundraising for Athletes Vs. Epilepsy needs some help. I’m currently at 72.5% of my goal, with only $275 to go. Abbe is at 83.5%, with only $165 to go. Please consider a donation if you are able to do so.
As an incentive to those of you that have enjoyed Abbe’s lunchbag artwork, any donation of $25 or more to either myself or Abbe gives you the ability to request a bag design. If you are local, we will give you the bag too!
Van Jr’s ice hockey team has been steamrolling opponents left and right. They bring a nasty brand of hitting along with some seriously great goaltending. Viv’s soccer team also has really found it’s groove, crushing the opposition week in, and week out. Having both kids on successful teams has made this year a lot better.
Abbe, the kids, and I are looking forward to Halloween. The kids are going to go hogwild with the candy, and Abbe and I can’t wait to see more reactions to our costumes this year. We are keeping it a secret, but we wore them at a Halloween party this past Saturday, and I made 6 kids cry.
