Falling Apart

I turned 37 and fell apart. I went to my Dr. on my regular yearly check-up. Nothing wrong, just needed to be done and I needed my diabetes medication renewed. So, while I was there I did mention to my Dr. that I work out 5 times a week and have gained 20 pounds over the last couple of months. And that after I work out I am so tired that I usually crash on the couch for an hour. I thought I just was working out super hard to try to get rid of that 20 pounds but no. He tested my thyroid and sure enough it had pretty much stopped working. I also have hypothyriodism. Yeah! Not much more can stop working before I stop working. My body isn't liking the medication he put me on. I hope it gets used to it soon. My stomach is in knots and I get winded going up and down my 6 stairs. I feel really bad for Joel because his family lives to be 100. I hope I make it to see all my kids graduate from High School.

Potty Training

Some kids just catch on and some don't. My nephew Evan who is younger than David has been potty trained for awhile now and doesn't seem to have any problems. Well, David gets the pee part. It's the other part that he doesn't seem to understand. So, we are now trying the "You get a new Hot Wheel car if you go poo poo in the potty" trick. It seems to be working, a little. He has gone once but, not on his own. He hasn't ever said that he needs to go potty unless Ben says that he needs to. Which usually happens right in the middle of Sacrament meeting. I am trying to get him trained before the family reunion campouts this summer. It would make life easier. He is my last and it would be nice not to buy diapers but it will mean a new stage of life for me and I don't know if I am ready for that yet. I want to stay as young as I think I am. Not how I really am.

Schools out!

Well, school ended yesterday and I for one am excited. I don't have to try to get Shayne's schedule and mine coordinated to get me and Sophie out to Tuacahn. And I don't have to hurry and wake up to get everyone off to school. We can all sleep in! I am so excited!

Happy Birthday to ME!

I had a great birthday today. Joel and the kids fixed breakfast for the second Sunday in a row. I was sang to in Primary. JoEllen and her family and Brad & Ashley came over for cupcakes and ice cream cake (I didn't want to make my own birthday cake so I bought one). JoEllen brought a cute little fish craft that she had leftover from Emily's dance recital so we did that. It turned into a big birthday party. It was a lot of fun. I called my Mom to tell her Happy Birthday. She turned 70 today. Growing up she'd always let me take the day off of school and we'd go shopping and take my Grandma out to lunch. I remember the first birthday I had at college I sat and cried all day long. It was the worst birthday ever.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day was great as usual. Big breakfast made by Joel and the kids, late to church, nap after church and a big wonderful dinner. Well, that was almost true. I had planned on making chicken enchiladas and the kids had eaten all of the tortillas the day before and I hadn't noticed that there were only 3 left. Not enough for enchiladas. So we dined on an oldy but goody....Mac & Cheese! Whoo Hoo! Oh well, it was easy.

The Start...

Well today was the start of a crazy Tuacahn summer. It started with dropping the boys off at JoEllen's so that Sophie and I could make it to our meeting at 11pm. Then from there we had an ANNIE read-through and then went straight to learning the music. After that we went right into blocking the first scene. Then another meeting with the parents. We got home at 8:15pm and hurried and ate something and went over to the school to see the Fireworks that start off Washington City's Cotton Days. It was very busy and I am very tired. I am going to bed! Thanks for JoEllen and Holly for watching the boys until Shayne got home for me.
