Whoa...
Holy crap -- I still have my Mindsay blog! How cool is that?!?

I suppose I should let you guys know what's going on -- although those of you who really care about such things have already found me and friended me on Facebook.

  • Av is 8 1/2 now. Going into third grade this fall. Absolutely loving his summer camp experiences. He spent three weeks doing a musical theater day camp, and he's finishing up two weeks at a Smithsonian summer camp.   He's just turned into this... little person who loves video games. And music. And baseball. And the Disney channel. And jokes. And comedy. Just a good kid all around. (Except when he's a pain in the ass).
  • Our kitchen has been the only room in our home that hasn't been updated since the house was built (1978). And with two of the burners on the stove dead, the refrigerator leaking, and the wallpaper peeling -- it's time for us to renovate and remodel. So we just started a refinance process to take out several tens of thousands of dollars for this uber-huge project which, hopefully, will be a good investment for our home. But it also means getting a home appraisal done, et al. First world problems at their best.
  • Monday will be five years since my mom suddenly died. Five years. It doesn't seem like it's been that long. Mindsay, I suppose, brings back her memory as I was quite active on here when she died -- and everyone was so incredibly supportive. I still miss her, but things have been getting better through the years (thanks, therapy!) and I feel like I have an emotional connection in the things I do, the way I behave, and the way I raise my kid. 
  • This coming October, I will have been married for thirteen years. We've had our ups and downs, and there have been times where I thought we couldn't make it. But we're in a very good place now, and I'm happy we both worked on things to make it last this long.

Well, that's a snippet.  Ciao, Mindsay! See you in another 2 years or so!

WTF Reunion Show - Saturday 11/14 at 10pm EST / 9pm CST
We did a test show last night to iron out some of the challenges of a new platform -- and it was a success!  Here are some of the latest details:

* The show has its own web page you'll be able to access at http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/69574  . There's a chat room for those who would like to participate live.  If you're looking to use your Mindsay name rather than "guest," you can quickly register with TalkShoe.  When you get to the chat, you can listen to the show.

* Windows users can also download "TalkShoe Live Pro" (for free) which allows a much sleeker interface and accessibility.  It starts up through your browser.

* For those of you who can't make it to a computer for all of the show -- you can also call in at (724) 444-7444
And punch in Call ID 69574 to listen! You MIGHT need to register on TalkShoe with a PIN beforehand; I'm not totally sure about that part of it.

* The show will be available online after the fact for those of you who have much less significant plans this Saturday evening.

Hope to see you there!
