Amie and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Month

Here’s the last day of what has been, well not the actual worst month of my and my family members’ lives, but pretty far up there.  I’d say it probably makes the top five just by the shear amount of crap that happened.  Now, most of the stuff that’s monetary is technically just inconvenient for … More Amie and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Month
