What is a hero? defines a hero as:

(in the Homeric period) a warrior-chieftain of special strength, courage, or ability.

Well, I am married to an honest to goodness hero. One who can raise laptops from the dead. Yes, my friends I am blogging from my newly incarnate laptop. The very same one that died a tragic death this very week. Don’t ask me what Mark did, ‘cuse I don’t have a clue. All I know is that he first rescued all of my files (happy dance) and then fixed the hard drive. He had to do some very fancy maneuvers, none of which I understand, but it is official – He is my own personal HERO. Sorry ladies, he's taken.

Laptop dies in horrific accident. . .

Monday night at around 8 pm, Amy Van Horn's shiny laptop passed over to the other side in a horrific accident. Not much is know about what exactly happened but at the time of death Amy was trying to make a photo book of her three adorable girls and we believe the laptop my have gotten jealous and just given up all hope. A viewing will be held at the "My Hard Drive Died and Took All My Work Files with It Funeral Home". Then the laptop will be cremated and interned at the “I Couldn’t Have Died at a Worse Time Laptop Cemetery.” Donations in lieu of flowers are being accepted at all Zion’s Banks. Ask for the “Poor, poor, Amy Van Horn, What Are You Going to Do Now” Fund.

Here is my first attempt at putting The Boss' hair in a pony. If she wasn't so wiggly it might have turned out better. Well smoother anyway!

Tag, Your It!

I'm just testing things now, here is another video. The Boss was trying to walk, Pooh Bear is playing tag with another little girl at gymnastics (it's Drama's class). You see Pooh Bear run up to The Boss after she falls and she declares that "Anna is it." No wonder this girl has got to learn how to walk. She get's tagged it and can't do a thing about it!

The Boss walking

Here is video of The Boss walking! She's not too bad!

Anyone who knows me know that I have addiction problems. Hello, my name is Amy and I am addicted to:
1. Sonic's Diet Cherry Coke - I keep going back even though the service is terrible and every time I say to myself, "this is the last one, I promise, I can quit anytime"
2. Shoes - not only for me. I have bought The Boss probably 12+ pairs of shoes in her short life (most of them were on clearance for $1.25). Now ask me if The Boss will wear shoes for more that 20 seconds? No, thanks for asking, she won't. In fact, she usually has the first shoe off before I can get the second one on.
3. Well, you get the point, I don't want to go into all my vices, let's be honest it's embarrassing.

So to add to my addictions I have acquired a blackberry cellphone. If you own a blackberry you probably know what I am talking about, if you are married to someone who owns a blackberry you know what I am talking about, if you don't I shall try to explain. Imagine, if you will, realizing that everything you thought was important really isn't and all that is important in this world can be displayed on a tiny 1.5"x2" screen. Now you might think that this is not possible, how can an other wise sensible person become so obsessed over a phone? In the first place, I was never sensible and in the second - it's crack baby, crack.

I can quit anytime I want to. I just don't want to. . .

Halloween has never been my favorite holiday, I'm a party pooper and never dress up, but I have to admit that it is a lot of fun with little kids. Drama was tinkerbell and Pooh Bear was a pirate. They had costume parades at school (one for Drama in the morning and one for Pooh Bear with the afternoon kindergarten) and parties gallor. Pooh Bear proudly told me that they would not be learning anything today because it was all fun and parties! Then we had trick-or-treating at Dad's work and in the neighborhood. Busy, busy, busy! They ended up with two entire pumpkins full of candy each! It was quite a haul.
