Yes, it has been a while. I have been busy with life the last few…ummm years. The bad news. Vulturette lost her job and has had a very tough time finding a new full time job. She has been working contract positions and odd jobs here and there. We lost the house. Vulture Whelp #3 dropped out of high school, but got his GED and joined the army. He is 3/4 of the way through his first tour in Afghanistan. Vulture Whelp #5 is in high school. # 4 is doing very well and is on track to graduate next year. #2 is in college in a pre-med program. #1 is working several jobs but is getting ready to go on active duty for several months of training before he ships out to Afghanistan. I have past two required state exams and I am getting closer to being a certified teacher. I hope that with all that is going on I will be able to actually blog again and keep regular updates going.
