Just wanted to give a little update on whats going on with us. Tomorrow is the final court date to close Jay's moms estate i pray that everything goes well and we don't hit anymore speed bumps. it has been a nightmare of a year! We are wanting to be moved over to the house by the first weekend in May which is pioneer days here! i pray that we can get everything done by then. we at least want to be moved over there at least by the time courtney graduates the last of May. we have alot to do over at the house we have to clean out all the junk in the house, paint, clean and re decorate, a fence built for our doggies, maybe new carpet in some of the rooms seems endless but it will get done we have lots of volenteers to help thank God for that.

Spring break is Wednesday - Sunday is kind of short this year which stinks. We are going to try and get courtneys sr pictures done then she has been not wanting to do it but daddy said your going to do it. both the girls are working, Cylie at yesterday's dinner and Courtney at the YMCA!
Chance is just enjoying life! Thats all that i can think of right now will let you know how things go.

Poor Bodie!

Jay just got called out to haul water to some fires that are out of controll over by Optima. The wind has been blowing all day and we haven't had any moisture all winter. Sure hope they get them put out real soon.

What a night!!!

Thank goodness lastnight is over. i didn't sleep worth anything. Yesterday at about 5 they sent Jay out to the bioenergy plant at Seaboard he called at about 9:30 and said that it would be another 2 hours or so. He didn't get home til 6:30 this morning he worked all night sucking that fat out of those tanks. I kept waking up to see if he was home every little bit. He is sleeping now. I guess we should be thankful that he has a job alot of people that he has talked to have taken pay cuts or lost their jobs since the oil field has slowed down a little and they don't know what the economy is going to do. Even though he got overtime i still wish that he had been home. I hope that he doesn't get called out.

Serenity prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can;and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful worldas it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things rightif I surrender to His Will;That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with HimForever in the next.Amen.

Excitement at the Dr's office

Monday morning Chance had a dr's appointment. he has this firal junk that is going around so Dr. Reed wanted to give him a shot so it would start working faster so he got the shot and were at the door ready to leave when all of the sudden he just wilted and landed in the hibiscus plant next to the door he had passed out his eyes rolled back in his head and he started shaking, i thought that he was having a seizure. Everyone in the office ran to help and they got the dr. Dr. Reed made sure that he was okay and they gave him some water and had him sit in the office til his color came back he was as white as a sheet. after the dr i took him to sonic and got him something to eat. He went back to school on Tuesday. He had to go to the dr yesterday to have his blood pressure rechecked it was back to normal it was just high because he wasn't feeling well.
