According to sources (and the date of my last posting) I haven't posted here since October 17th. Wow! Has it really been that long? Well, while things may have slowed down on the Dust Bunny blog, its been the exact opposite in the House of Oompa.
First of all, the Mesa Ridge Marching Band made it to the State Marching Band Finals and competed in Fort Collins where after 3 days of competitions they placed 6th in their division. That's one place up from last year. Yay Pride Of Mesa Ridge! Way to go Becca and Art!
Zack is now a licensed driver... ohhhhhhhhhh, scary! We're still waiting to hear if and when they want him to return to Florida. The job now comes with conditions. He will have to cut his long flowing locks due to the nature of the job. (heavy machinery + long hair = safety hazard). I'm trying to act disappointed for him, but truth be known I really don't mind him being home a little longer.
Rocky dressed up as a 'J-Rocker' for Halloween. For those of you who aren't familiar with 'J-Rock', its short for 'Japanese Rock'. Hello Rocky, you're Okinawan! Okinawans don't pretend to be Japanese, they just don't!
So now Rocky is an 'O-Rocker', that would be short for 'Okinawan Rocker', of course!
I guess O-Rockers have purple hair.
Gabe says 'Hey' from Baghdad. And his maybe not so ex wrote me an email saying that she was trying to move back to Colorado with the children... and my Grandbaby. Yay Kimmie! I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high, but its hard not to be excited by the prospect of having one of my Grandoompas living near by. And he has brothers.... more Little Oompas! Hehehehe. Allthat would be missing is Little Zack and Gabe. (heavy sigh). Who knows, maybe one day... some day...
