Ummmm... Hello...... My name is Amy....... don't know if you remember me or not. It's been a while.
Sheesh! A while is an understatement!
I am actually being shamed into blogging again by someone in New Hampshire... (you know who you are, BRIAN). He used the classic combination of flattery and smack-down all in one. So, here we are...
One of the reasons I stopped writing was due to 'circumstances' beyond my control.
One of our friends was in a horrible car accident just after New Years and I took on the responsibility of keeping a daily blog as to his status and progress for about 3+ months. I have learned more than I ever hoped to know about brain injuries. If you want to read his amazing story, you can check it out at: stacytempleton.wordpress.com If you start from the very bottom you can see what a journey he and his family have had to take this year.
As for our little corner of the world, the kids are great (I think). I dunno... I haven't seen them in weeks! They are doing the 'Camp Buelo' thing. The in-laws offered to take the kids for a couple of weeks.... and I have YET to offer to take them back!
God love 'em... they ALL sound exhausted. :)
I just got back from a visit to New Hampshire.
An entire week with the folks.
and the dog.
Paulette, the dog, has mixed feelings about me.
Granted, I'm fun, but damn, I rocked her world when I showed up there at my folks' house.
They've all settled in to a comfortable routine and she is the alpha leader.
I, on the other hand, am Queen Bee, and will bow to no one, man NOR beast.
We had a struggle, needless to say.
The bitch bit me.
'What did you DO to her, Amy?' my mom says.
'Nothing, Ma.... she just whirled around and got me!'
'I find that very hard to believe... that she would do that... she's a good girl'
(which apparently, I, as her first-born, am not)
I've known for quite some time that I was not the favorite child. I've come to terms with that. But now I rank below the damn dog. Wow!
I guess I should mention that she comes up to about mid shin and weighs in at 17 lbs.
Doesn't make her any less of a bitch though!
Look what this vicious thing is doing to that poor teletubbie.
