It has been awhile since we Bawked!

So you would think that I'd have oodles and oodles of time to blog.  If nothing else, I'd photos of everything to show you what was going on with me.  Sorry, I am failing madly at both!  Our life has been eventful, but crazy!

First lets talk bout these Chicks.  Don't you just love them??  Oddly enough I had no idea how true the "HEN PECKING" and "HEN PARTY" terms were until we experienced a change in pecking order this winter.  My dominant bird, Houdini fell to the bottom of the totem pole recently.  I have to admit, I felt sorry for her.  I babied her, brought her in and gave her a hot bath and blew dry her feathers as she worked on healing up the awful holes the other girls were leaving in her head.  They were bullying her and and I wanted so badly to carry her around in my pocket.  I wanted to tell those other hens to leave her alone, and put them in their place.  They needed to take their gossiping selves and go find something else to do.  Houdini did heal up just fine and seems quite content without her power.  I don't guess I will ever understand.

So one of this years resolutions, not that I make OR keep them, but I am trying really really hard at being better at correspondence.  Writing letters and cards, sending emails and texts and *gasp* even making PHONE CALLS.  I am trying to make more effort to acknowledge those that are important to me.  It is so hard!!  We have gotten soooo spoiled with instant everything.  Facebook makes us complacent to real people.  We get so wrapped up in funny pictures the little blurbs that we hardly interact.  Sad. 

So this year.  I got to go with my mom to see 3 Broadway plays in NYC!  It was soooo much fun and we got to see so many cool things.  Including Bradley Cooper, Hugh Jackman and Tony Danza.  The stars that we met were phenomenal, the food that we tried, amazing and the entire trip was a whirlwind of crazy exciting.  I hope to get our photos lined up soon so we can share.  I had camera issues so I am having to share with mom.  :)

Returning home we had two weekend scares with Heather.  She ended up in CCU with a UTI the first time.  Bloodsugars insanely crazy.  Then the next weekend we were back again.  Not for sure, but I think we narrowed it down to a faulty pump. CRAZY!!  Anyways, were working on getting a new one.  Animas totally rocks tho and sent us a temporary one until we can get the new one passed through insurance and such.  I hate insurance.  I hate life without it.  I hate it with it.  Sigh, but that is a rant for another day.  Long story short, shes doing great now.  Her blood sugars are really good and shes starting to feeling good again.

Then my aunts came to visit.  It was so great to see them, as always.  We had a great time.  But TIRING!!!  So then I start to regain my footing and the dadblame snowstorm of the century comes in!!  OMG!  Serious??  We spend a week at home.  Roads iced, fields snow covered...thankfully we still had power.  Life is good.

I do hope that each of you are well.
