Wow, its been a long freaking time since I have written anything. I wish I had a more interesting story, like I was taken hostage by a group of illiterate white rappers and forced to read them bedtime stories... but I wasn't and frankly, that didn't even make much sense.

So basically, for the one person who actually noticed my absense, a thousand thank yous bt the way, I'll try to give the short version of my life in the dark and fill you in on where I've been for... however long I was gone.

First off, 2007 being a trying year on my patience and on my soul, my grandmother had been in the hospital and ultimately ended up getting a pacemaker. To my joy, it has greatly increased her quality of life and things had been slowly getting back to normal for her. As my birthday approached, we decieded to take a trip to Michigan, home of the robin, the petosky stone, and inbred deer hunters... oh, and my family.

I'll recount the whole experience for you all later, including photos of course. In a nutshell, I would like to say that the whole thing was rather uneventful and relaxing, however, my grandfather took his turn at the table in the hospital, undergoing heart surgery.

He has recovered and is doing well so far, which I am thankful for. I am also thankful for the long and comfortable life my family dog, Beezer, had. She passed away this Monday, September 10 and it was certainly like losing a member of the family. She was a great dog and I miss her like crazy.

With all this going on, I still was hoping to stay remotely caught up at work-- a neccesity now that the circus of kidney stone repair bills have been parading through my mailbox. Just when I thought things were always just going to SUCK-- Mike started getting phone calls and several people were interested in hiring him.

Long story short, we are moving to Austin, Texas (yee haw!) the first week of October and I have to get packing.

I promise some laughs coming up real soon.
Thanks for standing by.
