I'm baaaaaack!!!

Whew that was quite a break I took there.
But I needed it.
I was starting to lose my mind.....well what is left of it anyway.

Just a recap of everything you missed from my completely amazing life....she says sarcastically.

My brother had a kidney transplant......his fiance gave him her kidney.....they are both doing well.

I gave my daughter the best 20th birthday present.....tickets to the Winter Classic Games.....We LOVE Hockey.

I was off of work from December 23rd until today January 3rd. It was awesome but to be honest I was really starting to get bored and my mind was turning to mush and as much as I love my kids if I had to spend one more second watching my son play video games I may have checked into the local hospital.

I received a Stormy Kromer carry all bag which is awesome because it is made right here in the good old USA.  I have nothing against any other country but it was nice to support a home produced product. Plus they send the most amazing confirmation emails thanking you for supporting them it makes it worth the purchase.

Amber turned 20 yesterday and it just made me feel very old to type that I have a 20 year old child........I think I may excuse myself to the ladies room and cry and look at all of my wrinkles.

Because its possibly everyones last year on Earth I decided not to make any unattainable new years resolutions which I will inevitably break the first week of January and then spend the rest of the year feeling bad for not sticking to those broken resolutions......its the year of the apocalypse so lets live it up!

Well thats about as exciting as it got here in Pennsylvania....how about you did you enjoy your holidays?

If it makes you feel better, you don't -look- like you have a 20 year old child. Not just saying that to make you feel better, either.

My middle child is behind me playing video games, right now. grr...

Organ transplants scare me. I'm glad he's doing well.

Have fun at your hockey game!

(oh... There are countries I have things against. Not the people in them but the governments and how they do things. It may have something to do with the fact that so much is made in a particular country and we keep finding out that the things being made there just aren't safe.)

Andrew thanks that does make me feel better. I completely agree with your last statement. I have made it a point to actually look for things that say made in america the sad thing is that there are so many things that we use everyday that are made in China.

Yeah, we've quit getting any kind of food item that comes from China or, even, Asia, really. It's kind of sad in a way, but they just don't seem to care what kind of harm they do. And that includes for the dog. Especially after the recent reports of dog deaths to jerky treats from China.
