Re: Thunder

Think we'll probably be making the first weekend of the State Fair our
vacation and then take a short camping trip the next weekend, which is
the weekend before school starts here and also Meg's 13th birthday.
Haven't even had time to do anything about the roof yet. Besides braces
for Meg, now we are looking at head gear for Mark (the beginning part of
braces!); braces are $4000 and head gear is $1500 both of which I have
to pay 30% in cash and up front; we had to buy new glasses for Mark and
now Meg needs glasses so we got those. Took all 3 kids to the dentist
for checkups and turns out all of them needed anywhere between 3-5
sealents reapplied to their molars. School supplies ran about $350 with
new clothes for Meg about $275 (she grew in height but also slimmed down
considerably over the past few months of summer!) Damn...am I broke!!!!
But...I have a roof over my head and food in the house, a good car to
drive...the rest is all gravy so I'm trying very hard to be

grateful for what I do have and let the worrying go...

Hills, IA  zone 5

Work for the Lord:  the pay isn't much but the retirement is out of this world!

You folks camp. don't you, Melody? Camping out can make a vacation even
<br>if it's in the back yard. Wife number two and I used to camp out
lots <br>of weekends spring through fall, many times at campgrounds no
farther <br>than 30 or 40 miles from home.<br><br><br>On Aug 1, 2005, at
