Accounting for the Last Months of My Life

Did you notice I’ve been gone? Don’t feel bad, I didn’t either. Sooo, the big question is: what has Alison been doing that she forgot to blog?

Um. IDK.

Here’s the best accounting I can give.

Number of weeks it takes to make a heart-wrenching decision: 3
Number of illnesses: 1
Number of hours it takes to make a suicide drive to Arizona: 34
Number of miles driven over two weeks: 5,000
Number of hours it takes to go on a shopping spree with my sister: 13 ½ -she’s a very bad influence ;)
Number of meals my mother tried to feed me: 45
Number of times I had to tell the boys to knock it off before I knocked their heads together: 625
Number of hairs picked off of my coat from having 2 dogs sit there for a total of 4 days: 1 billion
Number of books read: 9
Number of words written: 754
Number of times I had to watch my daughter kiss her boyfriend: 7 (shudder)
Number of days I got to see my other daughter: 12
Number of weeks it took to get over the heart-wrenching decision and figure out what to do next: Still working on it.

There you have it. My life in a nut shell. I promise we’ll get back to more interesting stuff soon!

you are sooo brave to drive to AZ. . . BLAH! I'm sure it was worth it though, right?? Kissing and all. :)

I'm intrigued by this heart wrenching decision. Is it the one we've discussed? If its something else, so sorry! hope it all works out soon. Your post was funny, though. Loved it.

'fraid so, Judy. It's amazing how many areas of my life it's thrown into a tizzy. See you on the other side of sanity!
