10. All four of us plus one of Woohoo's friends drove down to Corvallis for an OSU game yesterday - Go Beavs! They won!

9. Something big was going on on campus with the Greek system, (beside the game against Stanford), and it was one giant tailgater/party everywhere you looked.

8. I'm not sure if all that partying talked my daughter into going there or scared her away.

7. Today is my mom's 79th birthday. She makes 79 look good. Really. Good.

6. She's already let me off the hook for planning a big 80th. Thanks, Mom.

5. We took her birthday party to her: lemon bars, balloons, flowers, cards and a nice visit.

4. Went to Wordstock alone and found three great writer friends there. Love when that happens.

3. Heard Hope Edelman read and talk about her book, The Possibility of Everything. Just finished her book a couple of days ago. It is SO good.

2. Hope was incredible as a speaker/writer/teacher. Got me all fired up.

1. I'm excited to take Rojo to the naturopath tomorrow and have her weigh him. I think he's gained 6 lbs. in the two weeks since she's seen him. : )

Happy Birthday to your mom! I love that you had such a good weekend. Listening to Hope speak with you and our friends was a highlight for me as well.

A shift appears to be on the wind.

I'm taking The Possibility of Everything with me to Victoria. Looking forward to it.

Such good news about Rojo.

Happy birthday, Carrie's mom.

Love how you gave us a window into your weekend. So much going on. Let's see what that 'all fired up' brings...sounds full of possibilities. :)

Umm, go Ducks.

Just sayin'.

You, too, make any age look good.

Loved Hope's book, love her teaching even more. Glad you got to experience that.

Yay, Rojo! Go Trader Joe's! Go Naturopath!

Go Ducks!
