250 little reasons why there's no stitching here

250 gas leases. And 250 Memorandums of those leases.
That means 250 property ownerships and acreages to verify.
250 leases and memorandums of lease to prepare.
250 packets to mail.
500 sets of 3-6 acknowledgements to notarize.
250 Memorandums to file with the recorder of deeds.

All will be/have been done by me, and all before October 31.

The good news is, I'm starting to see the light at the end of this tunnel.

In other news:

YAY COLLEEN! My daughter won the Fayette County Coaches' meet. Yeparoo. First place. We were busting our buttons.

Then the next week she ran in the TriStates Invitaional, which is a really big meet that's like a preview for the WPIAL meet. She ran an awesome time - 5K in 20:17, and placed 34 out of 345 runners. There were several National Elites in the field of girls, so she had some great runners to pace her. The winner ran a 17:58. For a girl to break 18 minutes? Amazing.

And here are some photos that I've saved from the PA Milesplit website. Hey Von, you may like these.

The left and right sides of the starting line:

This race starts uphill. So all of the girls are trying to move into the middle and running uphill at the same time. Stressful?? You betcha. Can you see the arrow I drew to Colleen's head?

More converging on the hill.

Here she is on one of the flat passes.
The final push.
At the finish:

We'll go watch her run at WPIAL's on Thursday. I'm trying to remain calm, calm, calm. Wish her luck!


  1. Congratulations, Colleen!! Lee, you have every reason to be proud of her. :D I'm amazed by the winning time! Our girls team has a freshman who just ran a 5k in 18:30, so perhaps she'll break that barrier one day.

    Thanks for posting the great pics!

  2. Terrific race. Congratulations.

  3. You sound busy - I think I'd rather run the race :o) - congratulations to Colleen!

  4. Congratulations Colleen! That is GREAT!

    Hi Lee! Yikes, that doesn't sound like fun! I'm glad you're able though to see the end through the fog. Camp is LESS THAN A MONTH AWAY!!!

  5. That's awesome. Congratulations to Colleen!
