August 18, 2011. Doomsday for some. A national holiday for others. In this case, the “some” are my kids and the “others” are my wife & I as today was the first day back to school for our school district! Although they both like school, neither of my kids were too excited about the 7am wakeup call. Nevertheless they both got to school on time and without incident. Once again Christopher is breaking in a new teacher at his school (the 3rd time in 3 years) and Ava has our friend, Ms. Kendall, for her 2nd grade teacher. It’s an exciting time and somewhat scary considering we’ve heard nothing but horror stories about the 4th grade from almost everyone. Here’s hoping Christopher can handle the pressure!
In totally unrelated news, Christopher is playing football again this season and will play halfback and cornerback. So far he’s enjoying playing defense more than offense. We’ll see how long that lasts. And Ava is cheering for the Spartans this season and she is LOVING it!!! I’ll try to post some video here soon!
As for me…I visited the orthopedic today and had an MRI. I have another doctor visit on Monday to go over a course of action for my back pain. I am working the ATP event here in Cincinnati this weekend but he hooked me up with some medication so the pain will be minimal. I’m hoping to get a steroid epidural and then have some physical therapy starting next week. That should get me back to normal in no time.
Also I bought a new pair of glasses for myself. The glasses I have now have been falling apart for some time and I am in need of new ones. I’ll post a shot of me with the new ones once I get them (in 2 weeks. Really? It takes THAT long?) but the kids were more than happy to help me pick them out. Which ones do you think I got?
And that’s all I got. Oh…I saw “The Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes” today. My review is HERE. And if you like old-fashioned hairband rock & roll? Go check out the latest by the band “Hell Or Highwater.” I posted a review of their new album HERE. Go give my other blogs some love, will ya? Thanks!
