Roadhouse and Status Update


D-Rock and I were going to shoot a short apology video for promising new episodes of Roadhouse every Friday, only to go on hiatus after, you know, three episodes. But then we remembered that we had a World Series to watch, and since they are long and chock full of commercials, we could just film and edit the show during the games. Brilliant! So, here is the latest installment of Roadhouse.

Word of caution! We're talking about The Walking Dead and we are not spoiler free. If you're not caught up on The Walking Dead and you don't want to be spoilered, just skip ahead to 10:40 to see the best of our reactions as we watched the Tigers lose game one.


Another thing: I tried to fix the audio on this one, so the music isn't super blasting. I'm afraid I might lose some of the audio formatting when it converts to .mp4, but I think we've overcome that. But let me stress, any formatting was done during a commercial break.

Just a quick update on my hell weeks, for those keep score at home:


  1. I have parent teacher conferences to attend for both my kids. Nailed it. This one is all wrapped up.
  2. I'll be baking for the school bake sale. It was a full day of baking madness, but I produced twenty-four cupcakes, twenty chocolate covered oreos, and three loaves of french bread. The bake sale brought in $1200.00!
  3. I'll be shilling wreaths for another school fundraiser. 
  4. Both kids need homemade Halloween costumes that I haven't started. I started them. In fact, I finished my daughter's. My son's is more complicated, but that will be done this weekend.
  5. Pumpkins must be carved.
  6. I'll be volunteering at my daughter's preschool on three separate days. Not completely finished, but I did get one day out of the way!
  7. One of those days is her birthday. This necessitates cupcakes at school and a cake at home.
  8. Oh, and making a birthday present. Score! She changed her mind at the last minute, and rather than having to make her something, I just had to buy a Barbie doll!
  9. I'll need to take her to get her school picture retaken, as well.
  10. 100 bags and 100 folders need to be filled with various authors' promo for the Ready, Set, Write! Conference.
  11. Did I mention I'm on the conference committee for that?
  12. Or that I'm the president of the NFPO that hosts it?
  13. And I have to give a speech at it?
  14. And in the cruelest twist of fate, give a workshop there about time management? My time management program is completely outlined.
So, my new to-do list looks a little more manageable:
  1. I'll be shilling wreaths for another school fundraiser.
  2. Pumpkins must be carved.
  3. I'll be volunteering at my daughter's preschool on two days.
  4. One of those is her birthday. This necessitates cupcakes at school and a cake at home.
  5. I'll need to take her to get her school picture retaken, as well.
  6. 100 bags and 100 folders need to be filled with various authors' promo for the Ready, Set, Write! conference.
  7. Still on the conference committee.
  8. Still the president.
  9. Still need to give a speech.
  10. Need to go over my presentation, write where necessary.
  11. Bring snack to my son's scout meeting.
So, that's more doable, right? I also have to write three chapters for a publisher to have a look at during this time, but the proposal and synopsis are so good, I was dying to write it, anyway.

There you have it. I'll check back in next week to let you know if I finished everything, or if I'm just running around on fire. And hopefully I'll be able to share pictures of the kids' costumes, if they're not giving a white power salute, like last year.
