Update: He's going to live!

I have been taught how to administer Steve's antibiotic and dressing change from home. So for the next 10 days I get to play nurse. The good news is on the new antibiotic we have seen positive changes in just two day. The bad news is poor Steve is going to drive me crazy because he is supposed to stay homebound for 10 days!!!!

When it rains it pours! I have been suffering from a monster migraine for about 7 days. I even had to break down and go to the doctor. But the visit was fabulous...they gave me two happy shots right in my booty and it began to calm the pain down. In the midst of my comatose state on the couch I got a phone call from Steve, who also had to see the doc, and he said "I have to go to the emergency room right now!". I couldn't comprehend what he was telling me. All I could come up with was "I can't drive you!". Steve's mom came up from Spanish Fork to take us to the ER. Why did Steve have to go to the ER? A few days ago he noticed an irritation on his leg. When it didn't go away he decided to go to the doc. Turns out he has a staph infection that he possibly contracted from the bike at the gym. The poor guy had to have the infection drained and packed. For the next few days he has to go back to the hospital to get an IV of antibiotics. The bad news is the doc said it didn't look better today and if it doesn't look better tomorrow they will have to take more drastic measures.......we can only hope for the best and that the 3 antibiotics he is on will work.

My Annie is engaged!

Tonight I got a phone call from an out of control 9 year old named Nora! She was so excited and could barely get out the words that her mom (Annie) is engaged! YEAH for Annie and Ryan! Annie is my bestest girlfriend. She is the one who calls at two in the morning if she can't sleep, the one that made me run a marathon, the one who told me to give Steve a chance :), the one who heard all my complaints about dating....we affectionately call one another "our person" (Grey's Anatomy quote)! Now she has trully found her better half! I am so excited for you guys!!!!! Love you!!!

Pics for Granny B

These pictures are for Granny B. The boys have been asking Granny B to come to town to make them curtains for their loft beds. Due to her busy schedule she hasn't been able to make to town. So I had to break down and sew the curtains myself. The boys think they are fantastic and LOVE having a fort under their beds. If my mom looked at the curtains up close she would pass out....not up to her level of sewing at all.

****mom the other pics are of the comics we framed for the boys room. In alexa's room that is the bulletin board she picked out at Tai Pan and that is where she wanted it placed. I just have to remember it's her room and she can have things where she wants! :)****


On New Year's Day we decided we wanted a dog. We found Rookie that same day. We all were in love with him at first sight. The kids now have a reading buddy, an extra playmate and something extra special to look forward to when they come to the house. When we ask the kids if they missed us they usually reply "Yes we missed you.....but we REALLY missed Rookie!". Unfortunately Rookie is on my S*$^ list today. I have been able to put up with him chewing on the cabinets, the kids toys, peeing in the wrong places....but today I caught him chewing on one of my bras! He has crossed the line!!!
