So many things to be excited about …

So my nephew is due to arrive in this world on July 23, and I have pretty much put all plans on standby until I get that phone call from my sister that she’s going to deliver her first born.

In the meantime, I’m happy he doesn’t seem to be arriving during a major client deadline that I’m working on this week. Good for you, Cai! I plan to spend a couple of weeks at my aunt’s house in Greenville, just down the road from my sister and brother-in-law’s place, when he arrives.

After that Colleen will pick me up in Greenville on her way to Athens (I told her once she went once, she would want to go back! Love that place!) and we will spend some time there.

Kevin is doing a triathlon at King’s Mountain on August 8 that I will be attending (and camping) if I’m not in Greenville or Athens.

And Jeff just texted me that he won 2 VIP tickets to the American Idol concert! So exciting, and I texted Amy right away. I then realized it’s tentatively the weekend Colleen will be taking me to Athens, if Cai arrives when we think he will. So I may not be able to go with Amy.

Either way, all good things – I hope I somehow get to partake in them all!

    I am looking forward to our weekend trip to Athens, whenever it is! 🙂

    Yes, we cannot wait for Cai!!!

    And the triathlon is on August 2nd. I hope that doesn’t cause a problem with your schedule! I would understand if you can’t make it because you are visiting Cai or even the American Idol concert. Although I would probably give you a hard time if it is for the concert!

    Oops! I got confused! Well, if we go to American Idol then we’ll hit the campsites right after … so if we don’t go it will be because of Cai.

    Although if I had to pick between watching you race and watching Adam Lambert sing … hmmm …

    How in the world do you and Amy always score all this free stuff? What am I missing?

    When it rains, it pours. Busy weekend, but JB and I might have to make it to the tri for the after party!

    After party sounds nice! How is your friend JB by the way? I hope he can make it!

    JB has been around for awhile, but he is still strong. He is arriving from Kentucky any day now. Looking forward to sitting down with him, and having a drink!

    So, I attended a vendor event where they were giving away prizes by drawing numbers out of a bowl. The lady holding the bowl looks at me and asks me to draw the winning number, and I drew my own.
