My ❤️

I felt this was a great quote in light of recent events in Florida & then yesterday right down the street from our home. This world makes me fear for the future that my babies will have to live in.


Post Op

All done! Still feeling pretty loopy from anesthesia but the results have shown my guts look better then ever. The Entivyo is doing its job! I learned something new today. You no longer have to wear the balloon shorts with the back flap on them. I guess they’re cutting budget wherever they can. Also a strange observation in the procedure room. I saw a can of Pam cooking spray. It makes me wonder what it’s used for. Overall, today’s experience felt like I was a pro. 



Today is the lovely liquid diet & prep day. The day I dread for so many reasons. As if no food & only clear liquids isn’t bad enough, let’s throw in the hideous, gigantic pills that taste like sea water. I hope with every sense of my starving being that my colonoscopy tomorrow shows drastic improvement from my infusions. 
Fun times!


Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming

Ready or not, here I come! I’ve decided to start my masters degree because having a relaxing summer just isn’t on the agenda or is it? Have you ever known someone who can’t just be, they’re always pushing themselves for whatever reason. It’s comforting to have a challenge in front of me. It’s not that I’m not satisfied with life because I have an amazing life & I love the season which God has given me. I just have to keep pushing myself. Just keep swimming, just keep swimming! If I stop, I fear my health would get the better of me.



I graduated in 2005 from Texas Tech with my bachelors in sociology but that wasn’t enough. I decided to make a complete profession change in 2011 & finished up my teaching certificate in 2012. I have been a busy bee ever since so why not add more to my plate!

My first class started Tuesday online through Texas Tech & I’m already wondering what I got myself into! Every time I crack my book, I hear a cry from Luke or a scream from Jaxson. My time management skills will definitely have to develop….soon! If those could overtake my procrastinating skills, I’d be cooking with gas!

So my goal, because you have to have some kind of direction in life, is to graduate in May of 2018 with my M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction.
