# 43 Richard Petty (post) and other things..

No, this is not a NASCAR post. Sorry, hit the next button if that is why you stopped by. The title is a play on words that includes the post number. Some days I am more clever than others. Maybe not today. Yesterday was post 42, I forgot to include a mention about the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, where the answer to all questions is 42 (and don’t forget your towel). It was an interesting book that DS2 encouraged me to read. I would suggest reading it if you get the chance.

While looking for inspiration tonight, I googled the number 43. It is a liquor (which I have had)I don’t remember if I liked it. It was probably a long night in my misspent youth. There is a website called 43things.com. I am not a shill for some bodies website, but I had to click. This website is where you can list the 43 things you want to change in your life. Do I really need a website for that? What if I have more or less than 43 things to change? Maybe change is the wrong word, the website specifically says to list your GOALS!  Change, goals, whatever!

We are getting down to the end game for college entrance prep. It appears that all three boys have their loans secured. I am still waiting for one company to finish the documentation. Fortunately, when I went to the school website, the loan was listed already. That is a good sign. Left to do, try this list (lists are how were organize ourselves)!

  • Three children to eye doctor, make sure everyone has contacts for the semester
  • Three children to dentist
  • Three children to pack
  • Two children to communicate with their new roommates (I mean let’s get the process started at least)
  • Two children to get school books ordered (on-line if possible)
  • Buy a laptop for DS3
  • Sign up for Parents Weekend for two younger students, oldest child parents weekend date conflicts with one of the other two. Book hotels for both weekend (one weekend already done)
  • Make sure  youngest is ready with summer reading, alcohol avoidance module, “that talk” with dad
  • Make zombies with DS2. He got me a zombie of the month calendar, and we are way behind making them See the picture for clarification.

I’m sure my list is short. I imagine it will inspire my DW to tell me that she has already started the list and I am Johnny-come-lately in that department. I am ok with that.

 DS1 has spent the last 24 hours with his college girl friend. When we last left her she was living 2 hours away in the Allentown, PA area. She recently took her state nursing boards and passed!  Good for her. DS1 went to celebrate. He needs to be here at 7 am so he can be on LBI for work at 8 am. It is certainly doable, he is in love.. He recently asked his mother how he would know if she was the one.  I won’t paraphrase the response since I was not there that night. I was playing lacrosse and they went out for a drink and dessert at Applebee’s.

Ok, picture time. Today’s picture is from Christmas time. My DW has a display of small villages that come out every Christmas season. DS2 helped me glue together these two zombies which we posed in her village. She rolled her eyes, but smiled.  Enjoy!

Zombies invade the holiday village
