I have been so freaking sick lately its not even funny. In the last 2 weeks I have….lost my voice, gotten a cold, had allergies, a stomach bug and a partridge in a pear tree. I blame this all on Gabby. She is a disease. It seems like every other day she is bringing home some kind of new sickness from that daycare center. She has passed her disease on to Rich, me, my Grandparents and my aunt's kids as well. If you see Gabby coming near you, run like hell. She is the plague.

I have some new photos posted in my gallery, click on the link to the right to view. I really have no explanation as to why I haven't been writing all that much lately. Too tired. Too sick. Not enough motivation. Too busy. There now you've heard every excuse in the book. What I have been up to lately….POWER!, ASA Heart Walk, Working & Taking Care of Gabby, Chaperoning a Field Trip to NYC, Relay for Life, and a million and one other things. In short: I am a busy girl. I hate breaking promises….but I swear I am going to try to update this more often than I have bee.
