Still here. Still tree-ing. And the kids are soliciting.

Yes, a tree fell (almost) on our house less than a week ago and we have three crazy kids and two jobs full of goofy happenings and a dog that causes damage to cars when they hit her but remains unphased herself...but today I feel like "Life. is. boring."

Maybe it's because I'm so bone-crushingly tired.  What the heck is this about?  I have been completely wiped out everyday all day this week and even went to bed at 9 last night in order to get 10 hours of sleep.  Still exhausted.  My current guess is someone switched out my coffee for decaf.  Anyone even thinking "Pregnant!?" gets a free punch in the face.  No.

The tree remains are mostly removed and the verdict is that the responsibility goes to the village.  Yay?  Probably.  Financially it's nice but I have no idea what it will be like to work with the village to get things repaired and paid for, so in some ways I'd almost rather just know we file a claim with our trusty Allstate Dude and pay our deductible and Let The Magic Start.  Instead, until we know who, how, and how much we can expect the village to manage this, we are waiting.

Work.  Bleh.  It's going fine; I have loads of projects on partial completion hold.  I'm over it.

The kids are doing their bike-a-thon to raise money for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research and support which is a cause very dear to our family.  Our godson was diagnosed with it in 2008 (?) and so out of all of the charity-based events we do each year, this is the one we really really want to raise money for.  If you'd like to sponsor the kids on a per-lap basis (expect 10 laps each so no more than $2/lap/kid, probably and most are $1 or less) or you can do a single flat payment.  Checks can be made out to "Two Smiles One Hope".  Any amount is appreciated.  Seriously.  $1 flat donation?  Cool.

That is all.
