Wednesday: Rehearsal with orchestra
Thursday: Halloween party for SCCA at Fred Hutch School
And finally Friday: Halloween Party!
Before I get to Friday though I need to: get the laundry done (we bought our costumes from Value Village...nuff said), finish costumes(almost there!), and attempt to stay true to my work out routine goal....let's be honest, that is going to be hard this week...
How do our lives get so busy?

(Quick plug for our choir...if you think THAT sounds good, you should come hear us perform some "Bach Cantatas" next weekend, November 2nd. Here's the link if you want info: www.osscs.org.)
THANK YOU to everyone for making my birthday week so special....I love stretching out the birthdays as long as possible! I am a lucky girl.

"Welcome to this quiet haven and sanctuary where body, mind and spirit are healed and refreshed, where one can retreat, even for a short time, and become centered and renewed."
There is a stone there for my dad and my nanny that I had never seen...
My sweet dad to a T....

We have been in contact with this breeder for a while now, and have been watching the little guys grow...(today is their 2 week birthday) and I was showing Nicholas the new pictures of them just now...and as he is clicking through "pretending" to see how to put the deposit down on the dogs...he actually did, in fact, put the deposit down!
Ahhhhh!!!!! So the above little guy will be coming home with us the week of December 10th (FYI we will be changing his name....Aladdin?! I don't think so...if anyone has any good suggestions?....) I must admist we were both a little shocked that we actually put the deposit down today, but we really have been thinking of this for a long time now...and just knew this little guy had to be ours.
I am so excited/nervous I can barely stand it...we will soon have our little puppers! YAY!

"...as we forgive those who trespass against us..."
Seems very appropriate for our recent weeks happenings. I realized today that I really need to let go of the anger and frustration, and attempt to forgive the thieves who broke into our house in order to move forward. I still cannot understand how some people can do the things they do, but I will try the route of forgiveness, rather than anger.
Wish me luck-

I found this in "Body + Soul Magazine" (kind of random....found it at the gym, you take what you can get....), and I just loved it's message.
These shall be my goals for this month.
Me: The Annuity Source, this is Courtney...
Tom: Courtney....it's Tom...we are in this underground Chinese building or something and they have these really awesome purses.....(phone cutting in and out)....what kind do you gals like? Prada? Jimmy Choo? Gucci?
*Side note...if you knew Tom, you would know how funny this conversation is...he is a total "guy's guy"...never one to notice purses, but he and Margo just must have been so excited to find such deals
Me: Tom? (laughing) Where are you guys?!
Tom: Hold on...I'll send you pictures from my phone...
This went on for about 3 phone conversations back and forth, pictures being sent from his iPhone, and Tom running up to the street to describe the purses to us while I'm sure Margo stood guard of the prized chosen ones. It was hysterical!
I really am so lucky to have such an amazing boss. She is, truly, incredible.

Here's one of my reason's why it's good to have my mom:
I was just thinking of you this morning. I need you to remember how greatly loved you and Nick are. I am so sorry for these most recent challenges you are facing. It is so hard to understand why somethings happen....I guess we just have to believe that there is always a reason (most of which we can't comprehend)
Happy October 1st to my October precious daughter. How blessed we were on the day you were born. "The angels sang and they blew on their horns and they danced, on the day that you were born."
I love you sweetheart...make it a good day.
I hope mom doesn't mind me posting her email to me here, but I just had to share one of the million reasons why I am so blessed to have her as my sweet mama, and why today is feeling a bit better than yesterday. I love you!!!!
