Carol, the ASPCA has employees in CA and I'm learning more and more about how that works with payroll, etc. But much of it that I already know is coming from our discussions here! It's not totally foreign to me

The ASPCA also has a lot of people working the fires, rescuing animals and helping as they can. I love this gig and I hope I can make it work for the next few years.

So I can't really share this anywhere else, because my kid would be embarrassed, but she has a boyfriend!!! An honest to goodness really nice guy has been interested in her for the last few months, and this weekend they hung out, and he asked her to be his girlfriend. It's so incredibly cute!!! He's a nice, respectful kid who introduced himself to my husband when they met and shook his hand, and seems like someone I don't mind my baby girl spending time with. He's the first boyfriend, and I know he won't be the last, but if she's going to pick one, this one seems very nice.

How is it that 16 years ago I had a nearly one month old infant in my arms, and today she has a boyfriend? I don't feel much older.....where is this time going??? :)

Jen, enjoy this time. Nap when you can, you deserve it!! I'm glad you had fun!!!

Have a great night everyone!!

Hi guys, I'm back from Pennsic! It was quite humid this year, but I managed not to melt :)

Carol, that is flattering but not the retirement track that you want lol

I hope the fires stay far away, I can't fathom living near that kind of risk.

I had a good relaxing week, it was a slower and less active war for me this year with lots of naps. But I did fine in the heat and had good company while taking it easy. It was good to be around friends and to be outdoors for a while.

Haha, I don't want to be the CFO. This is my last job and in California agriculture being CFO means you are in charge of accounting, HR (OMG California laws are staggering), safety and food safety (which has new laws every time you turn around!). So, I ONLY want to be a controller in charge of accounting and optimizing the systems. We have 4 companies and 6 plants...it's enough. Though...them asking me to become the CFO is awfully flattering...

The fires here are insane! We are hundreds of miles away from any of the current fires...and yet, the edge of the sky has a definite orange cast! I feel so sorry for the Clear Lake folks! The lower lake town just endured an awful fire a couple of years ago and now the whole upper lake section is ablaze...and I mean the whole place.

The fire experts have a list of "most likely to burn" and number one on the list is Aromas, CA which is only 10 miles from our house!" What's even scarier is that we have an evacuation plan...like what to take if we only have ten minutes and what to take if we have an hour or two...

I keep hearing so much about the fires and I just can't complain about our heat. I mean, it's really hot, like low 90s with heat indexes around 100, but nothing is on fire, so I'll take our humidity over a fire any day. Stay safe out there!!

Office stuff, right? Seems crazy that you aren't the CFO there, but hey, who knows how things might change....... :)

Have a great weekend! Enjoy your Italians next week!!!

The dog ate my post on Tuesday and it's been crazy!

So the owners love me, but it's creating a situation with the CFO...which is my boss, right? They told me they'd keep her as long as I wanted them to...

We are getting ready to have Italians! I got pictures up on the walls and tonight I need to put a bunch of things away and get the houses looking pretty! My Italian son comes next Tuesday! and his mom and her husband come the following Tuesday!

I'm laughing at your hot weather! We are getting a late June gloom...it's foggy in the morning and then burns off, coming back in the evenings. Inland it's hot...and in many places, on fire! Hopefully they get Yosemite controlled soon or we may not be able to go up there with the Italians. It's 68% contained, so put good thoughts out there!

Where is everyone this week? I hope you are all so busy and having so much fun that you just don't have time to be here!!

It's so incredibly humid this week! I don't have to be out in it constantly, so I like it. I much prefer heat and humidity to cold and snow.

I'm chugging along with my work from home on my new Interim gig, and I'm loving not having to commute!! I'm also loving my workout routine. I love lifting!! I feel so much stronger already.

Have a great day everyone!!

Good Morning everyone!!! I hope everyone is surviving in the heat of August. I really never complain about the heat because I so prefer the heat to the cold that I just can't complain about the summer.

I had a great weekend. I was tired for much of it, probably due to the heat, so I did my workouts inside, I went to the county fair, I did some candle work and some CPA work and I relaxed as well. I'm happy as a clam right now!!

I hope everyone else is having a good start to the week. Make sure to drink lots of water if it's hot where you are. I know you know that, but a reminder is always helpful!!

Have a FUN and ACTIVE day and week!!
