Then yesterday happened....
My dad had come by my work on Wed. to ask if he could come over to my house on Thur. and cut down the two trees that we have been meaning to do for a while. I agreed and told him I would check on him at lunch. Well, right before I left for lunch the girls said that he called and I need to call him back. He told me to not leave that he was almost there. When he pulled up he smiled and asked if I could follow him to the dr. office down the street to have his ankle x-rayed. WHAT?? He said he was on the last big branch on the first tree and when it fell, it sprung back up and hit him off balance where he fell 8-10 feet and landed on his ankle. Later he told me that when he sat up, his ankle was off to the side, but popped right back into place so he thought it was ok to hop on one foot and drive to my work. Crazy man. Well, when we got to the dr. office, he didn't realize that you couldn't just walk in to get an x-ray, so we had to go to the ER. So I made him scoot over and drove him to Edmond Hospital. While we were waiting to go back, he suddenly started to get hot and light headed. I went to ask a nurse for a wet wash cloth, and when I came back he told me, "I'm going down." I started to yell for a nurse to help, and by the time the nurse came out to the waiting room, he passed out. Luckily I had put him in a wheel chair to begin with. I wouldn't have been so scared until he started to make weird moans and noises and then started what seemed like to me, convulsing. I was yelling Daddy the entire time trying to get him to wake up. I knew in my mind he was having a stroke or something. Another nurse came out to help b/c we couldn't get his legs up in the wheel chair to take him back. He finally came to when we were wheeling him into the room. They said he was ok, it was just due to him being in shock. Also, it was miraculous that his ankle ended up not being broken. The dr. said he would have bet his whole pay check on it that it was broken, there was no way it couldn't be by the look of it! I should have took him up on that! They said it was a sprain and he probably tore most of the tendons/ligaments in his ankle. So he is now on crutches for a couple weeks. Here is a look at his ankle that I took a picture of last night!
Well, I hope your week is going a little bit better than mine!!! Next week, hopefully it will be stressfree and calm!!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Until next time...

We have also been visiting my parents and catching up with them this past weekend. They just got back from visiting my family in Guatemala for the past 2 weeks. Yes, that's right, I am hispanic even though I look albino!! My grandma was born and raised in Guatemala. Everybody except her have the "dark genes" all nice and tan, and then there is my family!! We actually surprised them on Friday night for a visit and my sister's little boy Finn was there spending the night with them. He has grown a lot and talking up a storm. Here is a video clip to share for those of you who know my sister!!
Like I mentioned before, it was also Luke's birthday last weekend and since I was not in town last weekend along with my parents, we celebrated his birthday last night with my family. I wanted to make him a birthday cake, so Katie Rowten and I got together on Thursday night and made him a birthday cake. It only took us 5 hours to do it!! haha Go Broncos! We went out to Hideaway Pizza and then back to our place for cake and ice cream!!
Today was just a nice day of relaxing when we could and also, well, first before I say this I will tell you, no I am not pregnant. haha But today we did go over to my brothers house and get a baby crib that was my niece's. They have recently moved back from Phoenix and are trying to get rid of all their extra furniture and everything else. I'll put in a quick word for them...they are going to have a huge estate sale next weekend on Saturday and Sunday at their house they are renting right now. If you want their address, just let me know!!! You won't want to miss it!
Well, I've kept you reading long enough....again I apologize for not writing in forever. I know I've taken advantage of all of you cause I check your blogs all the time, but don't write in mine while I'm doing it! So again, my deepest apologies are to you!!! Hope you all have a great stress free week! Until next time...

This weekend we are busy with Day in the City today and also my best friend/roommate through college is in town with her husband staying with us. Day in the City went well for us; we went to the Oklahoma City Rescue Mission to help out with their "pantry". I put that in quotes because when we got there, it was actually a warehouse that everything was in bulk and we had to rearrange it all and take inventory. So I definitely got my workout for the weekend and will be quite sore all over! The neat thing is that some of the homeless that live there helped us out.
Work has been crazy lately due to one of the girls being sick and then Melody could only work part time due to her pregnancy. And I just got word that she just got put on permanent bed rest until the baby comes because she is already having contractions regularly and starting to dilate. She is not due until the middle of December so please keep her and her baby girl in your prayers. Also please pray that we can find someone to replace her at work because our work is hectic with only 2 of us there. Well, this is getting long, so I will stop here. Hope you all are having a great weekend! Until next time...

This past weekend, Luke and I parted separate ways to join each of our families. I went to Yukon for my mom's side family reunion and to work on scrapbook stuff with my sister. Luke went to Tulsa, where his family from Colorado was visiting and they went to Grand Lake for a day. When we got back on Sunday, we went straight to BK group and had a good time with our friends.
After this was all said and done, Luke started to feel sick yesterday morning, and woke up this morning talking about 2 octaves lower than normal! He went to the Dr. and found out he has a sinus infection, and a bronchial infection that could be strep. So we are taking it easy and I'm trying not to breath much around him!!
This is getting pretty long, so I will close here if you are still reading!!! I probably won't get a chance to write til next week due to another busy weekend! Have a great weekend! Until next time...

We also had a fun night last night. We were heathens and went to watch the Redhawks play with the Awtry's! And as you can see from the pic to the right, it was hard to find our seats because the stadium was sooo... packed! The Redhawks did pull through and win. It was a fun game to watch...(a lot better than men's fastpitch softball! hehe) So thanks again to the Awtry's!
Also, this past week, Luke had an encounter with the queen of the killer bees. He told me it was big before he showed me, but I didn't realize it was THAT big. Good honk! I'm glad that he won the battle! Here are a couple pics of Luke and the Queen!
Well, hope ya'll are having a great week! Take care, until next time....

This weekend has been busy as well. This morning I had a baby shower for Kaison Hobbs and I went straight from there to Yukon for a wedding at 2 which I was the guest book person. I finally got home at 5 and got to relax and swim for a little while. Tomorrow we have Brother's Keepers at our house, so we need to spot clean our house and get all the food ready for that. The good thing is that we don't have that much to clean since we did a lot of that last weekend. And also if you know my husband you would know why it's not that dirty!! :) haha
Luke had a great day today as well. He went over to a friends house early this morning and watched both of the first Bourne movies, and then went to the theater to watch Bourne Ultimatum. It is a really good movie! I would recommend it if you haven't seen it yet. Well, this post is getting long, so I will close. I promise to do better in the future of updating!!! Until next time...

This is also a long weekend for us. My boss is out of the office all next week, so each of us are taking a day off next week and I chose Monday so I can have a nice long weekend, and Luke decided to take it off too. So we are planning on a nice relaxing long weekend with hopefully no falls, busted windshields or flat tires!!! :) Hope you all have a great weekend! Until next time...

On to the jeep...Luke went to get a new tire on the jeep since it had a flat and he found out that @ Firestone they did not have the right size of tire since our tires were Goodyear before, so we would have to buy all 4 tires for $300 or go down the street to Goodyear and get 1 tire for $200. Now let's do the math here....therefore, we have 4 brand spankin new tires on our jeep! And after he was done there, he came home to meet the guy for the new windshield. So now our jeep looks pretty new now!!! Not excited about the total amount we had to spend on everything, but it's new!!!
Well, supper is waiting so I must go now. Until next time...

Then, as Luke and I were traveling down the interstate, a huge dump truck hawling rocks decided to throw one of its rocks at us and busted our windshield. So now we have a guy coming out tomorrow to give us a new windshield.
Now doesn't that sound like a great relaxing vacation!! Well, I'm off to start some supper or I may just call and order in food to finish off this stressful day!!! Until next time....

Well, life has been crazy busy around here with work and doing things here around the house. It seems like the to do list never ends. As soon as we mark one thing off, another thing is put on. We finally got our yard to actally look like a yard instead of a huge mud pit. We also did some landscaping with the flower beds and also around our pool with river rocks so we won't track dirt into the pool. I will post some pictures later since they aren't on this computer.
Well, lately I have felt like Noah's wife with all of this rain. I think this is the 19th day in a row that we have had rain. Not just sprinkle here and there, but pouring down rain. I'm thinking I might need to start getting some wood together to build a boat! I really wouldn't mind all of this rain, but it's just that as soon as we got our pool up and running it started raining and hasn't stopped. We have had to drain our pool twice so it won't overflow and try to keep the water more blue than green!
Well, now that I have made a good start, I don't want to bore all of you, so I will go now. Until next time...
