Wow, it's almost November!!!

I can't believe how much time has gone by since I last posted.  There has been so much going on in my life since that date.  The next Monday, my mom was going out to ride her bike, when her chain came off and she fell off.  She ended up fracturing her knee cap.  So my dad and I have been stepping up and taking over laundry, cooking, and everything else that she does during the day.  

Then if that wasn't enough on my plate, I had some serious issues with the pipe leading from my house to the septic tank.  The pipe separated where it was connected and began seeping in through the cement blocks in the basement.  I walked in the Friday, of the same week when my mom got hurt, to a overpowering sewer gas smell.  So since I couldn't use any water at my house, I had to move into my parents house for a week.  Luckily my parents only live a short distance from my house.  As we got the pipe repaired, we realized it must have been split for a long time because all the moisture in the ground near the pipe.  

So it has been a long October!  School was my calm place, until last week when I had Book Fair.  This was the comedy of errors Book Fair.  My start up box did not come, they didn't deliver a case, they gave me two of the same cases and one of my scanner for the cash boxes didn't work!  It was a Friday when I noticed all these things, so of course nothing could be done that day.  We finally got the correct case on Monday, but no start up box or scanner.  We finally got those on Tuesday after the Next Day Air shipped it to me.  It ended up being a very successful Book Fair, but one I don't want to repeat. 

I hoping that November calms down, and I'll be able to be posting more!  Also I hope to get back to reading soon!
