. . . since u been gone . . .

. . . oh, no ~ wait . . .
. . . it's ME who's been gone . . .
. . . it all started with a cable outage . . .
{xoxo, cox communications! (not)}
. . . but it turned into more . . .
. . . i've been the proud owner
of a pretty iMac like this
for a little over two years . . .

. . . during which time . . .

. . . i've been "lucky" enough . . .

. . . to need two ~ TWO! ~ new hard drives . . .
{xoxo, three-year AppleCare!}

. . . it's great to be up and running again . . .
{xoxo, brent rasmussen!!!!!!!!!!!}
*not my actual hard drive ~ but similar

. . . seven days without the internet
is quite a while . . .
. . . and a few things happened
during my down time . . .

. . . exciting news! . . .
. . . i got my dryer vent cleaned! . . .
{helpful hint: this probably needs to be done more often than once in fifteen years}

. . . who knew a load of towels
could dry in less than three hours? . . .
{xoxo, keith bloomfield!}
*not my actual dryer vent ~ but similar!

. . . we had freakishly cold/dumb weather . . .

. . . let us observe a moment of silence
for my frozen geraniums . . .
. . . and every single new shrub
tyler planted around our pool
last march . . .
{xoxo, mother nature (single tear)}
*my actual former geraniums

. . . my first-born ran . . .
. . . a very l o n g way . . .
. . . twenty-six point two miles to be exact . . .
. . . fast enough to qualify for the boston marathon . . .

. . . melody described her best ~ "part cheetah" . . .
{xoxo, amber!}
*my actual daughter!

. . . have you seen
the valentine version
of junior mints? . . .
. . . half of them are red inside . . .

{xoxo, dark chocolate!}
*obviously not my junior mints ~ mine are gone

. . . lash extensions . . .
. . . hurray! . . .

Bummer about your iMac. Ours just get stolen. Now I really want lash extensions (hate mascara). And, in honor of your return to cyberworld, the word verification of the day is "tortia." HAHA!

So, so, so happy for Amelia and Tyler. What nice parents they will be and freaking cute baby for sure! Oh and Amber, if you still need a relay person, I can pass stuff of to people. It might take me a few days, but I would for sure have it passed to someone else by the end. Wait, is that not what you meant? Yea, Cheetah indeed.
