Sorry I was gone so long!!!

I've missed you ladies terribly the last couple of months! But between being sick, my roommate screwing us over and then my mom robbed a bank while she was living with us it has been a while before things calmed down enough to be back.

So updates!!!

I've been doing much better! My blood clot has shrunken to the point of being invisible on MRI/CAT scans!!!! Yahoo

Charlotte is walking and talking some now and participates in her first beauty pageant on the 3rd of March. Smile I will post pictures- promise!!!

Ethan has also been doing great. He's in school now and loving it!

I promise I will post a (most likely pic-heavy) update again later today or early tomorrow Smile

She came up to help out with the kids while I was in the hospital, but only had enough money to either Angel get just her round-trip ticket or (B) get her and her husband up here one-way. I told her not to worry about it since I was due to be released any day, she didn't listen and made it a whopping 2 days before I got out. Well, we fought incessantly the ENTIRE time she was there and finally I just gave her $200 (a little less than she needed to get home), figuring since she and her knucklehead are registered plasma donors and she's a certified nail technician with friends in the area that they would just work for the other $100 or so (including food).

Well, September 28th they took off first thing in the morning. Before we even got up to put Ethan on the bus, which was really, really odd. Then they didn't come home at all for the ENTIRE day. Which was fine with me at first- all we'd done was fight. Then at about noon I saw a story on the news about someone attempting to outrun police in a Budget Rental Box Truck (they hadn't caught them yet). Thought to myself "what kind of moron just does that?" Later that night I was making dinner when my cellphone rang the tone that's only used for my kids' godmother. (She usually texts, so if her ringtone goes off it's because it's an emergency.) My Dh answered and handed me the phone while going to turn on the TV.

Trish asked me "Cat, are you aware of where your mother has been today?" "Um, no and I'm not sure I care." "Well, She and her husband knocked over a bank. Go watch the news."

So I go to see what's going on thinking it must be a mistake and sure enough the idiots who tried to outrun the FBI and local authorities in that Budget Box Moving Truck and threw thousands in cash out the window were my mom and her husband!!!

Within hours the media had gotten names of family members (including myself and my dad) that live in town and were parked outside our house. Within days the FBI had to come and ransack our apartment and question my dh and I to make sure we weren't involved. A couple weeks later, right before their arraignment the FBI agent came back to talk to us about my mom & her husband and the kind of people they were.

All in all SO crazy and SO sad. My mom and her husband were sentenced on Valentine's Day to 6 1/2 and 13 years respectively. (She got half the time because she only drove the getaway vehicle, he actually committed the armed robbery). Sad

I can pm their names, or links to the news story for those who would like them, but I don't particularly want to post them publicly.
