Ceiling Leak

On Sunday we had a small wet spot on our ceiling. Matt went up and saw that there is a lot of condensation where there is no drip pan. So he put a pan under there, and all was well. Today I looked up at the ceiling and I see this 2 ft wet spot, water actually dripping and the ceiling bowing. So I called Matt and said that he needed to come home because the leak had taken a turn for the worse. He came home and checked it out. The pan had flipped over spilling everything out and creating the mess. So he put a bigger more stable pan there to let everything dry out. Not sure what Matt has in mind to fix it, but we shall see.

Harry Potter

We went and saw Harry Potter, it was kind of a let down for me. I didn't read the book, so I had a hard time following the story line. So, maybe it was my fault. I just feel that when I go see a movie that it should all fit together so everyone can get it. Not just those who read the book. The effects were great and so was most of the acting. So overall a decent movie.

Road Trip!

My girlfriend, Ashlee called my up yesterday about 9 am and asked me if I wanted to go on a road trip with he to Greer to see her mom. Her mom was down from Utah and she hadn't seen her since April. So I figured things out at home and run away with her for the day. It was a 3 and a half hour drive. It was a beautiful scenic drive. On the way there we listened to the radio and Avril and sang along to it. Poor Ashlee endured my singing. We were so goofy at times. Once we got there it was so nice to sit outside and talk. Here in the Valley of the Sun, you just don't do that right now. It was 87 degrees and a nice cool breeze blowing.

Ashlee's parent's are so nice. They fed us and Ashlee got caught up on family events. It made me long for my mom. We took a few pictures of the day and you tell me if we are not as silly as teenage girls!!!

This was Ashlee's 1st and 2nd attempt at taking our picture! I finally got a decent one of us...

On our way home we had a few more adventures. There were some truckers that got in our way and delayed our arrival home by 30 to 45 minutes so we weren't very happy about it. Here is a picture of those bad boys...

Below is Ashlee's angry face in response to those crazy truckers who were just plain rude.

Scary, huh??
This was my fac
e once she hit the accelerator!

After that excitement, I was bored so this is what I did:

Cute kissy face! Bored face!

Cute Toe Pic!

The last but not least silly picture! My pretty eyeball!! I'm watching you!!

Emergency Room Visit

I get a call at 4:00, from Matt telling me he is on his way home and he did something stupid. So I slowly ask "What?" Then he proceeds into this story of how he was using his pocketknife to cut some loose strings from his pants pocket and it slipped. So of course, I start laughing. I just couldn't help it. What would you do??? He wasn't sure if it was that bad and wanted me to look at it. He gets home quicker than usual, and I look at the flap.. I am pretty sure it needs a doctor to look at it. So, I take him to the ER and at first the nurse practitioner says oh we'll see. It might need one stitch. Well after it was numb and cleaned out he saw the flap for what it was and he needed three (3). This is a picture of the nurse practitioner stitching it up. Then Matt also got to have a Tetnus shot. Lucky man!

The weekend

This weekend was uneventful, which is nice. I went to the gym in the morning and harassed the kids to get their chores done. Matt and I went to a friendship dinner at a ward members house. We had a great time being with just adults. Unfortunately, the van battery died and I will be home bound most of the next week. Oh well, I guess their could be worse things.

Sunday was nice. I spent the morning doing some reading on Trusting in God, then went to church. For some reason I was antsy at church. It was hard to sit still. I felt like a little kid. I guess we are all entitled to our days.

Monday, Kazhia has her heart ultrasound. We are getting a ride, luckily it's just down the street. I have to get my coupons ready to go to Fry's 10 item mega event for Tuesday evening shopping. I am looking forward to a new week. It's gonna be great!!!

Cub Scout Pack Meeting

We had a full pack meeting last night full of awards and entertainment. We have a new Bear leader and a new cubmaster to introduce to everyone. They are going to be a great asset to our team. Our boys got their awards from scout camp. We also had 3 Bobcats, 2 Wolves and 2 Bears move up!! Kyler happened to be one of the boys who got his Bear rank! We also had 2 boys get their religious knots, Kyler earned this award too. Our boys have been so productive over the summer, I am so proud of them and mom's for giving the boys some motivation! Pack meeting lasted a little longer than I like them to, but everyone seemed to have a good time!

Sick of the Shoulder Injury!

I'm sick of this whole shoulder injury. I have a tear in my rotator cuff and there was one in one of my bicep tendons. This was hurt about 3 years ago and keeps flaring up! I keep doing things unconsciously that make it worse. Like picking up things that are too heavy, and moving things, sleeping on my left side. I know what's wrong with it and there is nothing I can do other than rehabbing it. Luckily it's not as bad as the original injury, but it's frustrating just the same. I had to vent!! Thanks for letting me!

One Month til School Starts!!

Today I was reminded that the kiddos will start school in a month. I am so excited about this. They are so bored at home, and I am tired of watching them be bored. There are only so many friends to get together with, and so many chores that can I am willing to yell at them to do. Our home gets really hot in the afternoon because we are on the time of use and so we all get a bit testy in the afternoon. Today was worse than usual, I was the cranky one! We should have a back to school party! Who wants to join me??
