Life IS Better
The monster truck is returned. The new van is now owned by us and parked in the driveway. The bit of conflict that was is resolved-sometimes it does take two wrongs to make a right. The parents are still in hospitals way far apart in differing counties but I am no longer going to both EVERY day(just most every day). Mom won't be released from the hospital until March 7 so we have plenty of time to move them slowly. My head seems to be out of the "danger of exploding" zone. I found my owl pellets and the boys had a great time dissecting owl vomit. I really enjoyed the entire lesson because owls are my favorite animal, closely tied with hawks but owls win because they can fly SILENTLY. That is totally cool. I can't do anything silently. I subscribed to google reader and it is totally awesomely magnificent. I will save probably an hour everyday reading blogs. All new entries were read in about 10 minutes. Non-updaters, I don't even have to visit your site to know you let the blog community down-I mean, you did not post.
So now, it is off to some "frisky business". All this free time and positive news has definitely enhanced our love life.
