It was a nightmare because we were in the electrical section and had two guys helping us that weren't sure what planet they were on or what hot and neutral mean... On top of that Home Depot was hosting a kid workshop and it was right next to the electrical section and they were pounding on something like a jackhammer in a tin bucket... We got out of there with not everything we needed so we headed to Lowe's and finished our list. Home and J was posting some things on ebay, I printed out flyers to take to G's parent meeting. L&I headed to G's parent meeting. It was one of the better meetings I have been to and I think this experience will be very good for him. After the meeting we got home and I did some things on the PC and J went to State Cross Country meet with a friends, said it was super cool. L drove D's car and said it was going to blow up so D&I took a drive and got some power steering fluid that fixed the problem. Home and D fixed L's cabinet she attempted to fix...

Home and ate with L, J upstairs on Xbox and G at basketball tryout. After we ate I headed to pick up G up and waited a bit for the cut discussions... After waiting a while G came out with a big smile, he made the team!!! I ran G over to a buddies to go Trick-or-Treating and he changed in the backseat on the way. We saw his friends, I pulled over and he bolted to catch up and get some candy. I swung by the Pettit's on the way home and range the doorbell for a treat.

20191030 - German Dinner

20191030 - Up in the am and J really slow to get up and get to school. Got J delivered and headed in through crappy traffic to work. My office has been a revolving door all morning. The day was so busy in deep thought projects that my head hurt incredibly by the time I headed home. Home and got LJ&G and we headed downtown through some horrible traffic to the Hofbrahaus for my bday dinner. We were surprised by Gma&paW that were in town and able to join us for dinner. It was a great place and experience. The boys didn't like the food too much but they survived. Home and I fell asleep in the chair for a bit and then woke up to watch the World Series with G. The Nationals won so we were happy and Jason a guy from work I talked in to going was happy he did.
