Life in a Nutshell (And a Whole Lot of Parentheses)

Wow. So I realize that I've probably lost all 5 of my readers due to my most recent blogging strike I've been on for the past month or so. I guess I've been too busy experiencing life to blog much about it. Since I last posted, we ended up NOT going trick-or-treating (instead we opted for a family fun night out at Chuck E. Cheese's-we were surprised to find we weren't the only weirdos there--it was pretty hoppin'); I turned 32 on the 1st (which was celebrated with an evening of fabulous dinner at P.F. Chang's, a viewing of The Changeling-which was fantastic, BTW, and the last twenty minutes of It's a Wonderful Life on a portable blow up screen outside the Mall of Georgia pavillion complete with chilly weather, a cuddly spouse, and Starbuck's--it was perfect); Jo turned 4 on the 15th (complete with an inflatable jumpy birthday party); and now we already find ourselves getting ready for Thanksgiving (are you even serious???) next week as we celebrate our first ever blended Borg/Buckland Family Thanksgiving.

I feel like I have a ton of stuff to blog about, and now I'm all backlogged and such. You should expect roughly 453 posts in the next few days as I try to catch up. Hey, it's feast or famine with me. It's the manic happenin'. I hope you're in the mood to read LOADS of semi-interesting anecdotes written by yours truly. I know, who wouldn't be, right?

Ange, good luck with that blend thing. I'm pretty sure both sides are generally well behaved and good folks, but still...that's brave. However...many American families do this every year. I find that truly fascinating as I can not even get my immediates to "blend" :)
I'll be down in Phenix City on Thanksgiving (praise God) eating with all of my elderly relatives at, get this, my uncles' girlfriend's sister's house. Typical family get together :)

Elaine, this wouldn't happen to be the same uncle who's been struck by lightening TWICE, would it??? If so you should definitely include that in the description. It would be the icing on the cake. :)

About our family blend, our two families actually get along quite well, so that's good.

I'm so glad you're blogging again, Kiddo.
