There Is No Third Quarter

Who would have thunk it?  No third quarter challenge!

This is the first year I’ve done the quarterly challenges at The Loopy Ewe.  I’ve attended every session of Camp Loopy so I was really excited about doing all four quarterly challenges.  Quarterly . . four . . first quarter, second quarter, third quarter and fourth quarter, right?  Apparently not in Loopy’s world!

Third quarter should start July 1.  I waited for instructions to appear on Sheri’s blog.  I waited patiently . . with less and less patience as time went on.  Denise and I discussed it and compared notes.  Sheri usually announced the challenges about the 3rd of the month.  We know her so well . . we know her habits.  We know what she likes and doesn’t like . . not really.  Denise and I both were awaiting Sheri’s blog post on Wednesday, July 3,  because without a doubt, it would have the challenge details.  Then Grace Sheri injured herself and don’t ask me how a leg injury precluded her from doing a blog post but I guess that’s another thing that just happens in Loopy’s world!  (Glad you’re better, Sheri!)

So, Denise and I are still patiently waiting.  I thought of writing Sheri and saying . . hey . . did you maybe forget something?  But then I decided she seems to be running The Loopy Ewe quite well without my input so I kept my trap shut.

Yesterday, I got this email from Denise:

Apparently neither of us has a good memory. LOL  I was just looking back on Sheri’s blog because I got to thinking and couldn’t remember doing a third quarter challenge last year.    There isn’t one – she skips the 3rd quarter of the year since it’s Camp Loopy time so October should be the start of the 4th quarterly challenge.  Duh!

I’m glad one of us reads the fine print!

It makes sense.  We’re all busy with Camp Loopy . . but now I can’t do the challenge for all four quarters because there are only three quarterly challenges.  Three quarters!  That is really hard for my brain to reconcile.  My credit card is doing the happy dance though so I guess I’ll just move on and await the fourth quarter challenge.  Three quarters . . who ever heard of such? 🙂

    Did I mis-read something somewhere? I thought the Dreambird was the third quarter challenge. Of course, I’m not running on all cylinders lately, but, well, just make another Dreambird and give it to Vince for Christmas 🙂 I’m seriously thinking about giving a colorful ruffled scarf to my son-in-law,( who is chief of staff at UK) for Christmas. He’s a real sweetheart, but just too serious. Probably has something to do with his PhD in Political Science. That’s soooo boring.
