Life aboard the Smith Bullet Train is picking up pace again as we head into the Fall Season!
"August-November Train Schedule"
--The remainder of August is filled to the brim with doctor appts, garage sale planning and executing, business trips for Flyboy, and visitors! It should be a good, smooth ride!
--September brings us to the beginning of...you guessed it...SCHOOL DAYS! September 2nd is the official "First Day" and I have TWO that will be in school this year! Bug is starting the 6th grade and Cricket starts 1/2 Day Kindergarten! How exciting!! I am not sure what I'm going to do with myself! ;-)
Of course we will have the usual stops along the way for doctors appts & dentist appts...but we can't forget about the 19th..."National 'Talk Like a Pirate' Day"!! (Really, who comes up with this stuff and why??) You can expect the ride to be relatively quiet at this time!
--October starts a month of family fun! Each weekend is booked with fun filled Fall activities to include the Pumpkin Festival, the Autumn Festival, Halloween Parade, Corn Mazes and Pumpkin Carving! There isn't an official stop scheduled for Trick or Treating yet...it is to be announced. The ride will be fun and full of surprises this month!
--November starts out with a bang! The first stop will be taking Bug to get him tested officially for Aspergers. At this time, the ride on the Bullet Train will probably get bumpy and feel more like a rollercoaster than a train. Be sure you are secured in your seats for a possible momentary derailment. Due to the nature of the first stop, there may be several unexpected stops and bumps along the way this month. If you plan on riding along, please note that this month is not for those with heart problems, motion sickness, or anyone who is annoying in any way. The engineer may throw you from the train at any time if you become annoying or piss her off this month. The tracks are sure to be tough enough to handle without extra comments from the peanut gallery. You have been warned.
IF you make it thru to the end of November, there is a feast for your hard work and bravery! The train will be stopping on the 25th for this feast. You must be thankful if you make it this far.
