So, September is at it’s close. It began with, of course, my Birthday. I spent it at an open interview session for about 8 hours. Jenn took me out to Logan’s for dinner, and bought me 4 yards of rip-stop nylon (explanation later).
The following weekend, we went to Bay City on Thursday and visited, went to Uno’s, stayed at my Dad’s house, visited some more Friday and stopped at Turkey Roost on the way out of town. Got a call for an interview at Turkey Roost even. Then we drove up to Alpena and stopped at the Hospital to see Jenn’s Mom, then went out to the house. I learned how to shoot, and turned out to be semi decent for a first timer. Got enough in that I won’t be totally green when I take hunter’s safety at the end of October. Went to the Posen Potato Fest (imagine St Stans and Munger merged together) on Saturday, then up to Mackinac City and St Ignace Sunday, then drove home.
This past weekend I returned to Bay City, sans Jenn, for the River of Time. I was there Friday and Saturday. Went to Birch Run with my Dad Friday (Coleman had 30% off everything in the outlet) and had some Tony’s, then spent Saturday with the Library staff at Rudy J’s (which has gone downhill) and then to the River of Time. I was going to head out to Johnson’s Giant Pumpkins but didn’t make it. I then headed home Saturday evening.
I had 5 interviews this month, at ConAgra, LG, Magna, Corlett Turner, and Bata Plastics. Haven’t heard back from any of them yet.
I have decided that I am going hammock backpacking next year, hence the strange birthday gift. I haven’t made it real far yet, but should have everything I need to get started. I just need to find some space to work at this point.
In October, we have out anniversary coming up. Its hard to believe it has been a year already. We are still bouncing around ideas for what we are going to do. I also have hunter’s safety the 26-28th. Yes, at 28, I am just taking it. I figured it was about time.
Oh, we went to the Allegan County Fair early in the month, and if you live in the area and have never gone, I have to suggest it. It was easily the largest county fair I have ever been to.
We were going to go for another camping trip, or at least to the beach early in September, but never got to it. We had a lot of fun in Petoskey though, and definitely want to get back out to a beach next summer, Lake Michigan is just SO much nicer than Huron (especially Saginaw Bay). It was just a bit close to the end of the season. Though, maybe there will be a small October camping trip, it has happened before.
I think that covers everything. More next month.
