I apologize for my absence (I've always hated that word. I wrote so in my 4th grade journal after missing it on a spelling test). (I had to spell check it and spelled it wrong. Sigh..)
This past week has been fun and busy. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law came into town for my other sister-in-law's baby shower (is that confusing enough?). There was a lot of shopping, eating, playing, and talking involved. I had a great time and so did my little boy.
We had to put our cat, Myrtle, down. She was acting weird and not eating so we took her to the vet. $600 later we learned nothing and couldn't afford anymore. We had her for four years. She was anti-social but loved to sit on your lap while you were going to the bathroom. Our other cat, Princess, misses her and so do we, but I'm glad she isn't suffering anymore.
Then Jon had to go to Omaha for work so Nate and I went to my parents' for a few days. Nate LOVES his Bumpa (and Grammy Pie). I love that they are such great friends. Nate is Bumpa's little farmer. He loves the moos, the red car, the toys, the choo-choo that goes by their house.
Now Jon is on his way home from Texas after a La Rue gun show with his uncle. Nate is asleep after waking up late and not taking a nap. Princess is sitting on my lap, giving herself a bath. I'm so excited to FINALLY have a desktop with Internet after two years of mostly just using a Blackberry and laptop.
I promise to write more often.
