hi guys

Published by at 9:28 pm under amy's head,daily

or is it guy? first of all, i’ve always liked to assume that the term “guys” in the plural includes both genders. I have no problem if I’m standing with a small group of people, and someone else refers to the small group as “guys.” It’s a non-gender group term.

Just thought I’d get that out of the way.

So hi guys. Or is it just like, one lonely person out there by now, in the cobwebby land of crazymokes? Of course not. No one stays in the cobwebby land of 1 site. No, the feed in the reader just never has that little bold style or a little (1) that shows that look! amy posted something! SHE DIDN’T DIE IN A DITCH SOMEWHERE, WHO’D A THUNK?!

The strep had a better chance of wiping us out, but we PREVAILED! Jocelyn had the last case, and then 3 days after her last dose of antibiotics, she came down with it AGAIN. On the day of Ethan’s birthday party. Poor girl. We caught it very early though and a scrip of zithromax nipped it in the bud.

Once Ethan’s party was out of the way, I’ve had time to kind of focus on the next big event coming — our vacation. My folks live in Park City. We leave on Wednesday and will be gone for a week and a half. We’re flying out to utah (4 non-stop plane tickets to SLC = we are now broke.) I can’t really remember how it got started, but idle talk of going camping in Moab has grown to epic proportions involving my entire family. Out of all of my family, we are the farthest away, so it was relatively easy to get others involved. I have a sister coming up with her husband and 4 kids from southern utah (cedar city), a brother coming over from Colorado with his wife and 4 kids, another brother coming down from Oregon with his daughter, and my other siblings are in Salt Lake. It’s going to be so much fun! I have 6 siblings, and between the 6 of us, there are 12 cousins, ranging in age from 14 to 3 (Jocelyn is the youngest, but only by about 5 months). So there’s going to be a gaggle of us swimming, biking, hiking, keeping small children from hurling themselves to their dhoom off the arches, roasting marshmellows, and digging holes for our own poop (because campgrounds? with facilities? THAT’S FOR WUSSES. We’ll be out in the DESERT THANK YOU VERY MUCH.) (I actually have no idea, but there’s been talk of an outhouse and if that’s correct I think I might prefer digging my own hole.) We’ll be camping in Moab for 4-5 days and 3-4 nights, and I can’t wait.

So, to that end, I got my mobblogging plugin working again so that I may plague the internet with blurry photos of the various events of our trip. Those of you who tuned in for this last August may wish to turn their feed off – I hope you won’t though. I think it’ll be fun.

I’ll try to post more before our departure wednesday, but lately, the blogging bug hasn’t been biting. I don’t know if this just means that my mental health has improved, because generally, I blog when I have shit to get off my chest, or I have just been busy living and enjoying life. Either way, I need to write more because I love to have things here to look back on. I look back now and laugh at the things about the kids that I’ve already forgotten.

Anyway. More later. I definitely need to give a hair update.
