Updates and a story

Yes, I realize I haven't graced you with my presence since April.  I should be sorry, but I am really too lazy to be.  So, instead of saying "oh, life has been super busy", or "I was in a blogging rut", or my personal favorite "I was busy enjoying life!" I'm just going to say I'm sorry if you missed me.

So with that being said, here are a few things that have happen since April.

1.  We got a second dog.  Her name is Hattie and she is the sweetest thing ever!

2. Dean's family has been having a tough break.  First his uncle was in a freak tree trimming accident and had to be life frighted to the nearest trauma center (same hospital that Tracy Morgan is in by the way).  During this time Dean's grandfather was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and passed away shortly after.  His uncle never had a chance to say goodbye, that was hard to watch.

3.  I became an auntie!  My sister-in-law gave birth to her first child at 12:01 this morning.  A little girl they named Abrienne Jael.

4.  I am still not pregnant after even more aggressive treatments.  I am trying not to lose hope, but to be honest, I am starting to get very depressed.  Life just doesn't seem fair to me at times.  Which brings me to my story:

About a week or so ago, I was at work and decided I needed a coffee break.  So I went to the Dunkin' Donuts that is about a mile from my office building.  I walk in and notice a small child, about 2 or 3 years old at the most sitting on the counter with his (her?  I honestly couldn't tell) mother standing there.  He was filthy, in pj's, and shoe-less.  When his mother asked him what he wanted he said "coffee coolata and sprinkle donut!"  So, mom ordered it for him.  I was appalled.  Here it is 3 o'clock in the afternoon, your child is not dressed, shoe-less, in desperate need of a bath, and you just gave him caffeine AND enough sugar to feed ten ant farms!  What are you thinking?!  And I am the one who can't get pregnant?!  Please explain to me how natural selection works again?  I think Darwin was wrong.
