Back from "vacation"

So yesterday evening Leila and I were watching Psych on Hulu and commented that I had already seen this episode. She turns to me and says, "You must have seen that while on vacation." and went back to watching the computer buffer the episode.

I spent two or three days each of the last few weeks looking at yield trials in Nebraska and Iowa, apparently on vacation. I have been busy at work and at home. I have turned on my computer and pulled up my blog, thinking I would turn it on and write on my blog, but I haven't.

Things that have happened that should have had blog entries:

Aleah's first day of school - she was super excited even though she has a hard time waking up early each morning. She usually sleeps in until 9:00 and even getting her up in time for church is a struggle. Once she started school, she has caught pink eye, the stomach flu, and a couple of colds. After a month we are starting to get into a working schedule - we carry her downstairs, get her dressed while she bonelessly eats breakfast, and then she dashes off to school with Emily.

Emily's trombone - Emily is in 5th grade which has band and they had a day to try all the instruments and she decided she wants to play the trombone.

Leila's sewing machine - her sewing machine broke after our basement flooded. Something must have been sitting on the foot pedal because when she went to use it after we cleaned everything up the motor was burnt out.

Fall here has come like a thief in the night. The corn seemed to dry overnight and how the combines are running.
