*Taps microphone* Hey, is this thing on?
Pssst... did you miss me? Thank you to everyone who sent me messages, texts, tweets, calls, facebook wall comments, telegrams, candygrams, and smoke signals, asking about me and telling me you missed my posts. It meant a lot.
The truth? I've been feeling a bit depressed. A little uninspired. A little busy. A little lazy. Not much really has happened in the last 3 weeks. In fact I can probably tell you everything that happened in just one sentence.
*takes deep breath*
Well you remember how Marshall was laid off in March and how we had a promise of some weeks of work, but then almost all the projects lined up fell through, so we've been living on no income for most of that time and used up all our resources and finally had to dip into our home equity line of credit to pay the mortgage, except the day after I borrowed the minimum necessary out of the line of credit, I get a call from the bank telling me they are closing our line of credit due to the drop in property values and suddenly I'm wishing I had taken the whole amount and dumped it into our account, but you live and learn, and Marshall's parents are now helping us out which is such a blessing and also Marshall has 6 days of work that started on Monday and we've never been so happy about 6 days of work in our lives, so you can understand how life has been a little stressful and depressing, , plus I've been extremely busy co-authoring a secret blog with some friends and please don't ask me what blog because I just said it's a secret and I'll have to kill you all, which is hard because most of you are lurkers and I have no idea where you live, so that's weird, but enough about that since there is some interesting stuff has also happened in our lives when one of our sons informed us that he just proposed to his "girlfriend" during their play date and she said yes, except I don't yet have the permission of both parties to tell their story or show the picture (hence the censorship above) so you will just have to make up your own story in your head about what happened between them, and while we were quite surprised at this recent turn of events, we love the girl and the parents and are mostly grateful that we don't have to pay for the wedding but now our other son says he wants to marry the other sister, so I'm thinking they could probably save money if they had a double wedding, which reminds, me, I asked you guys to vote on whether to keep or drop Wacky Wednesday, Funny Friday or both, and the voting is over so the results are that 7 of you voted to drop either WW or FF or both, so I'm thinking the solution is for the 7 of you to probably not visit my blog on those days, because the days that I am blogging that happen to fall on a Wednesday or Friday will have those themes because the vast majority of you voted to keep them, and speaking of "keep them" we will only get to keep the bun-buns another 2 and 1/2 weeks before they are ready to go home to their new families which will be sad for us because we've really enjoyed them though I have realized that a playdate between five indoor kitties and two baby bunnies was probably not the best idea I ever had but there was no permanent damage, which reminds me that when I leave bunnies running around the family room, I should probably make sure my tasty laptop cord is not within reach of teeny tiny bunny teeth.
See? Nothing much happened the last three weeks that would take up more than one sentence.
