Highschool volleyball & the first day of school

This post began yesterday afternoon just prior to our leaving to watch the girls first volleyball game of this school year. Both girls are excited and only slightly nervous as they did very well at a scrimage on Monday. This is Ashley’s first year as the varsity setter; she has improved so much since last year. And Katelyn? Well, she is still a firecracker and one of the last remaining senior JV members. I have video to post and will try to get to that this evening – it is canning night again tonite. Mom, Terry, Dad – if you want to check the schedule, just go here; I do not believe this is the complete list (so far) so you will need to check back for updates.

This morning was the first day of school – we have a freshman and a 10th grader. *bites nails* Bath County schools are starting earlier this year than in past, yet still after most counties have already begun. I know there will be some post worthy stories about today and those will trickle in tomorrow.

On another note, I have been preoccupied lately mostly due to lots of canning, cooking, writing and reading this post from A Self Sufficient Life about making money by posting online. It is a big more involved than that and if you are even remotely interested, read the ENTIRE article. My job is not 100% secure (is anyones when you work for someone else) so I am trying to vary our income sources. After the van is paid off, our only big bill will be the mortgage and my student loan (*ack*). I have also applied to write for a few other blogs – yes, filling up the ole plate. Applying is one thing, being accepted is another. No worries if that door is not ready to open.
