Back in the saddle...

I have neglected my blog long enough. In fact, the only comments I have received since my last post are from some friendly anonymous posters:

I hope that you are not american because shopping at Wal Mart is the most unamerican thing you can do in this country. Ask Wal Mart why our economy is so bad considering that everything they bring over here is from China, Afghanistan or Taiwan. Way to go American.

This was posted on my Meijer's Sucks/Black Friday post in 2007 where I casually mentioned going to Walmart for deals. GET OVER IT - Does it bring you pleasure to comment on 2 year old blogs that mention Walmart. Really? Someone needs a life.

This other comment is a peach:

I just came across your blog and wow..hope you don't use that potty mouth around your kids.Everything we say around our children, believe me, is remembered and used by them..

LMFAO - oops, I mean "That's funny!" This was posted on my Dane Wars Star Wars post where there is NOT ONE single bad word. Yes, overall, my blog does contain swear words. No one ASKED you to read it, and furthermore - last I checked my kids couldn't read so I think we are safe. I do appreciate your deep concern Mr. or Mrs. Anonymous - you are saving children of the world by your random blog comments. (oh, and just so you know - I have been used to use the occassional cuss word in front of my children - but only if I really mean it!) lol


Anyway, on to important news. We moved. Far. We are now residents of a teeny, tiny town in Kentucky that currently holds the Guiness title for the World's Smallest Walmart. It has been a HUGE adjustment so far - but things are finally settling in. Jamie is working at the local Hospital doing outpatient and homecare and I am trying to secure a job teaching. If I can't secure a position this year - I am going to try to sub this school year to get my foot in the door. The boys like our new house and they really love our new street where they can ride their bikes up and down all day long. The goal is no training wheels by end of summer, we'll see how that goes.

We are still trying to sell our house in Michigan. The bank has been sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo (un)cooperative. So, we are kinda just twiddling our thumbs waiting for them to do something - anything. We have great offers on the table and buyers who want it --- but how long are they willing to wait, ya know?

Well, that is all for now. I have a ton more stories about the boys and how rotten, er, great they are! :)

Love ya all and miss you much!
