I know it's been a while since I last blogged. I'm starting to see how things are going in everyone else's world however. I know I haven't provided the coverage I should have sometimes, but other times it's quite easy to let eveyone into my life and what's going on. Since the last time I blogged, which was when our hamster left our presence we've gotten a new hamster, had a few differences, and Colby has lost one of his co-workers to a terrible accident, and my car is up and running again.

Lets start with the new addition. She is absolutely precious and so much more well behaved than Rascal ever was. She hasn't really bitten anyone badly as of yet, but she squeaks at us to let us know that she is not happy. She is so very outgoing and I just love it. She's so sweet. She likes to go swimming so we fill up the bathroom sink and let her go. She gets bath's frequently, and she loves that too!!! She likes to play dead sometimes as well. It's so funny. Colby doesn't like her color but he absolutely loves her personality, which I do too. She's soo funny all the time, and goofy. When she cleans herself she'll clean whoever is holding her as well. It's so awesome. She's pretty young but I don't really know how young but she's still pretty little. SHe's soo funny and we love it.

Colby lost a co-worker in a super bad accident where they flipped the truck. It ended up crushing his skull. This happened Last Saturday. The phone rang and rang and rang off the hook and it was sad and hard to watch him go through that. All I could say was I'm sorry and those weren't even words that could begin to scratch the surface on how he felt, or even begin to comfort him during that time. I love him alot and it gave me a new appreciation for him. I love him sooo much and I really don't know what I'd do without him.

Things have been a little rocky but you know what, we're going to make it so long as we continue to work out our differences instead of letting them build up until we both get soo mad that it all comes crashing down at once. It's hard but we're going to get there. TOday has been excellent I'd say.

The wheel bearing on my car went out about 3 weeks ago and that was a nightmare. Colby fixed it and I couldn't be happier. At first they gave us the wrong part and that is rather agravating, but he took it back and got the right part which is good. He fixed it on Friday and I'm so thankful that I have a handy man in my house.

Brooke is doing good and will start school in a year. I'm not really getting excited about school shopping. I'm glad that Colby likes to school shop apparently from what he told me on Saturday. SO I suppose he can take her...ahhahhahahah!!! I'm not going. I HATE IT!!

Anyway, that's the update to my life.
