Just a note for anyone who was wondering where I have been.

I was plagued by tension headaches for a couple of weeks.

That got fixed and then we had a weekend long family reunion that required a lot of cooking and entertaining.

My little sister was home from the Dominican Republic for a week.

I found out that a guy I was very good friends with in grad school/seminary for about three years, drowned along with his younger brother last month in a kayaking accident. I was lucky in that I had exchanged an email with him last December after several years of having lost contact, but it hit me pretty hard. There was a time in my life when he was the best friend that I had. He is the friend of mine who was "bartending his way through Seminary" if any of you have read the account of how I met my husband.

Gladly, ladytonks had been planning to come visit for a week and that helped me keep busy. She also came the week of the local county fair, so I ended up going out almost every night and taking Max to the fair. We also went to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum while she was here. I highly recommend it if you ever find yourself in the Springfield, Illinois area.

Now everyone is gone, and I haven't written a bit on my fic for a week, I need groceries, I am really tired, and I am totally putting off writing a sympathy letter to Chad's mom and dad.

So yeah, that is all for now. Well, that and Max is in serious need of a new diaper!

*hugs* to you sweetie. That's hard. I have some friends like that in my past, and if I were to find out such a thing, it would hurt mightily.

I'll be thinking of you this week....early Blessed Birthday to you.

Hello Tory!
Hi Tory!

It has been so long I can't believe I finally found you guys again! Its Elder Fan (aka Amy).

Sorry about your headaches. I finally got back on the internet and tried to find everyone but had no luck. So one day I was looking at our t-shirts and smacked my forhead. DUH! Phoenix Chicks! So how have you been? My family and I are good. Still in Arkansas. My kids are 7 and 9 now. Scary. If you do facebook look me up. I am under Amy Cotter. Hope to talk to you soon.

Amy
