OK so I may tend to talk crap write about the people in my life.  And yeah.  I may get myself into trouble from time to time because of it.  (cue the villagers swarming my house and plaguing me with eternal damnation).  But I can’t help it.

I say:  life involves sacrifice.  If you want to hang with me – which of course you do – and you do something stupid worth mentioning, I’m going to blog about it.  All’s fair in love and blogging.  🙂

So just for shiggles, let’s just list out a few of these repeat offenders so y’all have a frame of reference shall we?

Mark:  Husband.
We’ve been together for almost 9 years (married for 4).  Mark is fantastic.  He loves me even though I make him buy tampons and shoot ungodly amounts of hormones into my butt so that I may turn into an alien species that should be put down.  All while smiling (well, as best as I can tell from behind my back).  Mark wants to someday have his own comedy act but has a few kinks to work out. Most notably, his lack of talent in this area.  Bless his heart.

Sandy:  Bad dog.
Sandy is our 3 year old, 65 pound lab. Sandy eats ANYTHING and sheds more hair by 10AM then I have produced in my entire life. She’s still alive because she’s really cute,  but she works hard to change my mind of that every day.

Monster: cat.
Monster can definitely hold her own with crazy freak dog listed above and gets a lot of enjoyment tormenting her.  Mark and I are convinced that she is solely responsible for the large conglomerate known as monster.com and we regularly bitch about the fact that we still have to pay for her food.  I am hoping to inherit her fortunes someday.

Muppets:  my friends in my computer
About a year ago I wrote about my muppets.  I think it sums them up pretty nicely.  Who knew it would be such a catchy lil term for internet friends, but hey.  Always the innovator I am. 

OK let’s get a little serious here.  These next two are not so fun.  Can I ask you to all gather round and move in a bit closer?  We might need to send someone out for tissues..Mark?

Ashley:  dead baby #1.
Mark and I sadly had a miscarriage in July 2007 at 12 weeks. It was pretty much the worst thing that has ever happened to us.  Two weeks after the MC, we were told that the baby was a girl. We couldn’t just call her Girl and vacuumed blobby sounded so last year so we named her Ashley. I never met her, but I often think of her.  I’m sure she’ll come up.

Daisy: dog #1.
Growing up, the one thing I always wanted for Christmas (and never got) was a black lab named Daisy. I asked for her every year. When Mark and I got married, Daisy became a reality. She was perfect. I loved every inch of that ball of cuteness. She was so clearly our substitution for a baby and we didn’t care. Sadly, Daisy was killed on Christmas day 2005 while we were in NY. Stupid reckless cousin that obviously had no sense was watching her.  Side note: we still haven’t spoken to this cousin.  Apologies must have gotten lost in the mail.
