It wouldn't be one of my blog posts if I didn't post an apology about neglecting this blog. Sorry for that. I'll blame the recurrence of posting on some co-workers who shared my site around the office. I'll let them remain nameless for their privacy, eh hem.
It's been a busy year. The house is nearly done sucking money in. Oh wait, who am I kidding. There is always stuff to buy. It should be slowing down though. We're all still enjoying the house, although I'm pretty sure I can't fit anymore Christmas stuff in here. It probably also compounds the amount of crap magazines I get in my mailbox on a daily basis. It's gotta be a 10:1 ratio of mail I recycle vs what I actually need.
I did re-read some of my blog posts, and found it amusing all the typos and crappy grammar I displayed, especially when I read someone else's typing and all that jumps out at me. Perhaps it's because I never re-read blog posts, and it's more of a free stream than actual thought-out content. I think the more years that get between me and my English classes, the worse it gets. Kind of like handwriting. I sometimes like to claim that when I took my German classes 100 years ago it screwed up my grammar. It certainly did something to it. Those crazy Germans. ;-) So logical!
What else...let's see. I turned 40. That's impressive. Kind of. It's not that hard to make it to 40 I suppose. I don't do very many dangerous things, I won the lottery by being born in the US, and there isn't anything that can kill/eat you in Kansas. Penny took me to Chicago and we saw Hamilton and went to Second City and ate and drank and drank and ate. It was terrific by all counts.
That's it for now. I'll try and come back once more before the end of the year. It might be tough since the kids will be bouncing around and my ADHD will be flared up. Merry Christmas to all 3 of my readers. I could probably just tell you that in person at the family gathering anyway.
