Four years ago on this blog I wrote this: "the thing that is choking out my blog is ultimately going to revive it." [You can read that post here.]
Four years later, the exact same thing on the exact same date is true. It's such a long story, but somehow we've found our way back to Cheyenne Frontier Days (or rather, Cheyenne Frontier Days found us again). The bottom line is that Matt is once again serving as the chairman of the Military Committee, which means all the things we were doing four years ago are pretty much the exact same things we're doing now. Except we aren't really all the way moved in yet. And we know how much stuff is on the horizon vs. being vaguely oblivious like last time. Also, remember the laundry fairy? We know him by name now! He's the new chairman of the Parades Committee, and he is great—he even has a sense of humor about that laundry fairy story, which I decided I absolutely had to share after officially meeting him. HA.
I'm already sitting on a large amount of photos, and I'm going to make the same good faith effort to share the rodeo and all that goes with it : ) Just for fun, we still have a List of Things Currently In Our Posession That Do Not Belong To Us this year, too. It includes:
two sets of keys
20+ library books
four period costumes from the Frontier Closet
one Central High School marching band uniform
one Dodge Ram truck
one copy of The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling (not particularly CFD related but still)
So there you have it. With my pit pass as my witness....
