So I assume we're still doing this, right?  =P  Totally and completely kidding.   I know we're all busy and preoccupied with other stuff.

Since there wasn't a topic posted, it's a "Hey How's Life?" week.  Up until the past week, though, there hasn't been much to report.  To begin with, I guess, Angie's boyfriend Chris finally found a police officer position!  He'll be working for Bratenahl, a private city near Cleveland.  I guess it's not as safe as it sounds, though.  Even though the community is gated, the surrounding area is really crappy, so I guess those cops usually have a lot to do.  We're all going to worry about him, of course, but at least he won't be bored.  Something else awesome is that his badge number is birthday!  We all had a good laugh about that.  I guess there's a chance that he might double badge with Eastlake, since the position in Bratenahl in only party-time, but that's still up in the air.  Right now anything in that field is progress though, since his commission from the police academy ran out, literally, on the day that he was sworn in.  (For those unfamiliar with the process, a graduate of the police academy has only one year after graduation day to find a job.  If they don't, they have to re-take all their academy courses and re-spend all that money).

Secondly is that I am having LASIK done.  I went to the LASIK Vision Centers of Cleveland, and they told me that although my prescription is pretty high, I have a thick cornea, and that's essential for the surgery to be effective (or is it "affective"...?).  I'm nervous for it, but I really feel like I need to do this before my eyes get any worse.  I should really get them back to square one ASAP before I have to spend even more money on extremely thick lenses.  The surgery is going to be expensive, but I have the money now, so I think it'll be a good time to finally have it done.  The freedom from glasses and contacts is going to be so liberating.

Thirdly, guess who's back!

Remember Sport?  Well the big guy is back!  We're only fostering him, but he's doing pretty well considering he's been here all of about two days.  The little family we adopted him out to found a new place, and unfortunately, that place has a zero-tolerance policy for anything with even a little bit of Pitt Bull.  We're on the waiting list for Lake County's no-kill shelter, and the list is fairly short, so I'm anticipating he'll be at the shelter probably before Halloween.  None of us are going to be happy to see him go, but he's just too much for us.  Just imagine Duo as an active puppy, with longer legs and the ability to leap from couch to couch...and who takes advantage of that ability more often than we can handle.  Still...we'll always love him.

School is going fairly well.  To prepare for my LASIK, I know I'm going to have to get super ahead on stuff because I'm not supposed to read for extended periods of time for about a week afterwards.  It's actually pretty hilarious because the consent form says, "Rest as much as possible after surgery," but, "Try to refrain from reading or watching TV for the proceeding week."  Then WTF am I supposed to be doing while I'm resting?!  =P

And speaking of TV...ONCE UPON A TIME STARTS TOMORROW!!!!!  Who's excited and has two thumbs?  THIS GIRL!!  Also, did we all get the chance to see Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Sleepy Hollow?  Because those two shows are awesome so far, and those who didn't watch should catch up while it's still early.

I love and miss you guys!
