Crossfit Fury



My husband and I decided to check out a gym that was recommended by a friend of mine. The name of the gym is called Crossfit Fury. I must say that this gym works your butt out. Not only do they tell you what to do the whole time your there, they also stand there and push you to continue with their suicide workouts. These so called suicide workouts will definitely be worth it though once summer comes around. I'm hoping to be one hot momma! Here is the link to the website if you would like to check them out.

Peek A Boo!

I see all of you coming by and looking from morning till night. Who are you? I would really like to know. Some of you I do know but others I have no idea. Please leave me a comment and let me know who you are and how you came across my blog. Don't be shy! Give it try! :)

Back In School!


I have just started my second to last class for nursing school entrance. The class I am taking is Human Anatomy II. This class by no means is going to be easy. The teacher has already given us a ton of work and he doesn't seem very lenient on his schedule. I have a feeling this is going to be a tough semester unlike the cakewalk that we had last semester. I guess that's what I get for thinking that it would be. I have one more class which is Microbiology and I have to take an entrance exam before I can be put on the nursing school list. I already got my fingerprint card out the way so these are the last three things that I need to do. Wish me luck on this new adventure in my life. I know it will be worth it not only for me but for my youngest son Zane too.

He Loves It!


I don't think we could have found a better gift for him. He absolutely loves his hammock. This is how we found him yesterday after the nurse put him in it for some R & R. He looks so comfortable and he was snoring really loud. It can't get any better than that.

Being Lazy!


Whenever we travel without the kids we always bring them something home. While we were in Mexico we found a chair hammock for Zane. I absolutely had to have it. He loves laying in the hammocks down at the Blind Foundation so I thought he would love one here at home to. Bryan set up the hammock in his room so that way he can use it whenever he wants. The hammock can hold an adult so we are not concerned if the boys want to try it out. Here is a picture of Zane enjoying his new relaxation.

Our First Break!

My son Logan who is 6 decided that it was a good idea not to follow directions at school. Look what happened!



He felt it was more fun to jump off the swings. I swear "Boys"! What am I going to do. :)

Hoot! Hoot!

Look at this cute little guy. He is a burrowing owl and he lives next to our storage unit. It's so amazing how he let's you get so close to him to take a picture.

Robinul: The Wonder Drug!


Robinul is said to reduce secretions from the bodily organs and you know what it does just that. On Monday Zane saw his new pulmonologist at PCH and I do have to say I liked him very much. He has such a better bed side manner than his last doctor. During the appointment I voiced my concerns about Zane's non-stop secretions. I know that sounds gross but it's the truth. This boy can leak from every orifice on his face. I felt so bad for him because he had so much that he didn't know what to do with it all. Can you imagine having a runny/congested nose 24 hours a day since you were born. I needed to find help for him and I think I did.
We decided to put Zane on Robinul on Monday and since then he has been runny nose free. This is a big deal for him and us. I am still crossing my fingers though because maybe he's having a good week but I'm hoping it has a lot to do with the new med.
Today we saw his new ENT doctor. I like him also which is a good thing. He decided that he is going to clean Zane's ears out under anesthesia and during this do his hearing test. If he gets in there and the fluid seems excessive then he may put tubes in his ears. During this procedure he is also going remove Zane's Adenoids. The doctor did look at his tonsils but felt that they were in pretty good shape an that they wouldn't need to be removed. Surgery will be scheduled within the next couple of weeks. We are hoping this will do wonders for his congestion problem.

Happy New Year from Mexico!


For the past few years we have done nothing for New Year's. Every year we keep saying that we are going to go out and never do. Well this year was different. We decided with a group of our friends that we were going to ring in the new year Mexico style. Some friends of Bryan and I own a house down in Puerto Penasco and they rent it out to whom ever is interested. The house is new and is located off the beaten path but near the beach. If anyone is interested check out their rental website at http://www.casicielorp.com/.


We had such a fantastic time in Mexico filled with fireworks (which we shot off ourselves), drinking, eating, shopping, and of course lounging on the beach. I couldn't have asked for a better mini vacation or a group of people to enjoy Mexico with. Here are some of our pictures from our trip.



Sea Shell with a bunch of shells within it. This was taken at Cholla Bay during the time the tide was on it's way out. The tide goes out for miles. It's really a weird but amazing site.

This is me rummaging around in the low tide. There was lots of interesting things to look at.
