Where oh where....

have I been?

~ we went out of town to the big ole town of Eden, NC. My mom's family reunion and it was such fun. Interesting fact.....my mom is the youngest of 13....a bakers dozen. Her family has been having this reunion for 72 years, without fail. My mom is 74 years old and she still has 1 sister and 4 brothers alive....I think that's some good genes! I have around 61 1st cousins on my mom's side.....most all of us are married with a couple of kids and some of those kids are married with kids. Soooo.....it's large and it's a big deal and it's something we look forward to each year!!

~ I took Chrissy tonight to get her last shot for her torn ACL. And she's still limping! And the bad news is it's only a small fix for her problem......she will have problems the rest of her dog life and should not run. Well, chasing squirrels and tennis balls are what she lives for. So it's either keep her from running and doing what she loves or letting her run and risking another injury and spending the rest of her dog life limping around. Because that surgery that starts at $2,000, that's no guarantee either!

~ I am a big fan of a sweet little boy named Parker. And Parker's mom, who by the way is one hell of a woman, she post over on 5 Min for moms......and she has written an article about the new Ben Stiller movie. And I am liking everything she has to say about it. And you know, I'm bad with the whole linky linky button so just look over to the right and click on Precious Parker.......you'll get Tammy's link from there. And while there, check out some pics of that little cutie patootie!!

~ The Olympics are killing me!! I stay up too late, we even watch em in the early hours of the morning....arghhhh. You just get so sucked into them but it's all good...I really, really love them!! GO USA.......

I need to go hit the hay......and watch the girls gymnastics which are coming up in just a little.....

later......

The surgery was worth it for us...We used Dr Buck at Countryside off of Patterson. I now think the world of that man!

We are enjoying the Olympics too and staying up too late as well. My mom is one of 9 children and we used to have family reunions every two or three years when my grandmother was alive. Now it's every 5 years and we are due for another but it's getting too hard for all to travel most of them are dealing with some kind of health issue. We have a Yahoo email site that everyone talks on and has been good to keep up with everyone. All 9 are still alive and kicking ages from 70-88.
Sorry about your dog....it's hard to see them hurt just like our kids.

WOWSERS, HUN! That sounds like my dad's family! Only we don't have family reunions, what a shame! We are sooo spread out and soooo many (last count in 95 was 253 direct descendants of this branch of the family!), that we have never worked it out.
Your poor little one! I hope you can keep her as safe as possible... such a shame!
Did you watch the girls gymnastics??? I was soooo disappointed! :( Darn Chinese!

My kids and I have enjoyed watching the Olympics too! Hubs told me the other day that every time he tries to watch, it's only water sports. :-)
