Well yesterday as I was becoming a crispy critter at Grouse Creek with my BFF's family they admitted Ryans dad to the hospital. Thursday he had surgery to have his peg tube replaced and they did a scope and he came home. Well somewhere he started to loose blood. Yesterday he got 2 units today 4. I left the hospital at 10 pm and he was on #3. They believe he has a bleeding ulcer so where we go from here who knows but as long as he begins to feel better like he did today we are thrilled.  Also prayers for my friend Karen who recently lost her mom.
Tomorrow I will post pics from the Crickin weekend :)

Tweenager = Fumes

Hate the word and now I have one and I am suppose to like her?

Its a vent day I guess. Just frustrating that is what summer has become for me. I dont understand how someone can be home all day and see the mess around them and not have the knowledge of "Hey something smells funny, maybe its the trash, I should take it out! Oh and look I cannot forget to put a sack back in it"
"OH LOOK the dogs hair has collected into a corner of the hall maybe I should sweep it up"
"The sink is full maybe I should load em into the dishwasher and start the dishwasher"

I have worked OVER 40 hours this week come home at 3pm to air conditioning because we are working window units right now at the clinic because the state has decided to repair them for 2 months of THE DANG SUMMER!! WTH!!

Should anyone in the house wonder why I am livid and have to pick up and do damage control? You have been home all day! I realize that maybe the TV, Computer or the gecko was feeling neglected but seriously for 8 hours. OH WAIT! MY BAD! You prolly slept until 10 that only gave you 5 hours to do your chores so sorry I didnt give you enough time to get stuff DONE!!

UGH!!!!!!! Am I the only one? Is it just me? This is the reason I leave to crop with my friends because when I get home I miss my family and look past all the mess that was left for me. K that last line was a fib, cause I dont!(I miss the family not the mess)

10 Years..Its True

Ten Years Ago.. This month Ryan and I met for the 1st time at the Wichita River Festival. His sister Traci convinced me to come watch him and their dads construction crew compete in a Tug Of War contest. So I went, we both were looking for the same thing. Nothing serious just someone to hang out and have fun with. Well as the evening progressed we went to Traci's house and had steaks and drinks and we visited alot. I left because of other engagements but was glad I went. Ya it helped he was tan and super good looking and was confident but not cocky and polite but allowed me my space.
As time progressed we would just spend 1 night a weekend together usually at the bar after I took Carlee to her dads. The other night allowed me to be with my friends. He spent time with his friends the weekends I had Carlee. I never mixed boyfriends with her makes things more complicated than it needs to be. After 6 months or so it was all weekend. After a year had passed I would get very upset leaving on Sundays. I would be torn between seeing my daughter and missing her and leaving him. When I think back the time we spent was really only every other weekend and some days during the weeks of the summer if Carlee's stepmom didnt mind. She always understood because she too had been a single parent. So now here we are 10 years later and he still cracks me up and has taught me to relax. Ya know when we first started dating I never owned a tshirt or comfy pants. I wont admit now how many I own. Seriously...

Happy Mothers Day

Here is myself, my mom, my grandma and my sister. 
We had lunch today at my sisters today. Ryan went to the Blatchfords for his mom and we got to see everyone for about 30 minutes before all of them left.
Today I am reminding myself to be appreciative, Carlee isnt of the age where she can go out alone and buy me a card or gift. Her and I had to have the talk about selfishness every time she talked to me today it was about what she wanted and as a mother I should realize once I gave birth that I could no longer be selfish myself I guess you just hope that for one day a year you can.
Off to start a week with no clinicals and just "normal work" whatever that is.
Many prayers to Leslie and her family as her husband recovers from back surgery and prayers for my BIL Kenny McNutt who had knee surgery Friday.

Fun Times..Right?

I am officially finished doing clinicals at the hospitals. I am thrilled and thankful for this, granted I have learned alot but the extra hours a week have taken a toll on my family and life so it was time to cease it.

Happy Mothers Day to everyone out there. Even if you are a furbaby Mama you deserve it.

Tomorrow is lunch at my sisters, Ryan will be going to the Blatchfords for his mom. Wish we could all be together but it happens.

Oh My Seriously?

Its Sunday morning and I had this big TO DO list for the weekend because I finally had a weekend off from clinicals and i have done nothing. Besides the 5 hours I spent yesterday trying to figure out why my dads laptop freezes. The only thing he uses it for is internet and thats when it does it. Seriously the last Dell guy had no patience with me and maybe I had none either I was just flustered.

So here I am thinking maybe Danelle (DC) should be here and BlogVideo that my scrapbook room isnt always perfect. Since Crop Camp its been a pit and not a good example for my daughter when I tell her to clean her room and mine looks like one little tiny tornado visited Kansas and left behind the carnage.

I did read the book Girls From Ames if you dont have this on your list you should. It just solidifies why girlfriends are so important in our lives. Its a true story of 11 friends there are ups and downs but please take the time to read it. Ive got a copy if you would like to borrow.

I started the Divine Secrets of The YaYa Sisterhood last night. I bought the 1st and 2nd for $4 each at Brace Books in Ponca. They have new and used so its great on the budget :)
