Family and friends are THE most important things in our lives. We wanted to start a blog as a way to keep in touch with family and friends. We will try our very best to keep you updated on our lives, and we would love to hear from you as well. Please feel free to post comments and let us know what is going on in your life as well. We are fortunate to have so many people who we love and love us in return. However, unfortunately you all don't live as near as we'd like. We hope this is a way to make you feel closer to us.

Spring Fever

Hoping the weather can make up it's mind soon. It's teasing us. Super warm one day and snowing the next, yes snowing on April 9th. And that's no April Fool's joke. Today was awesome though. Nothing better than coming home from work and still having  a couple hours to enjoy the nice weather with the cutest kids ever. Ry takes after her Mommy Christy. She loves playing in the yard and even has her own gardening gloves, shovels and watering can. Easton is experiencing grass for the first time (grass people, not weed), and like his sister isn't enjoying the texture so much. It's the only time I can get him to be still. He refuses to crawl on it. 

Softball starts next week and we've cut down to one night a week. Apparently 4 nights a week was too hard on my shoulder. I've been having shoulder pain for over a year now and I finally broke down and had an MRI after trying P.T. for a month without relief. Turns out I have a SLAP (Superior Labral Anterior Posterior) tear. In lay person's term, "something bad that needs surgery to repair". I've always said, "I will never have surgery on my shoulder". In fact, I NEVER want to have surgery on anything, but I may just break down and do it since it's affecting my everyday activities at this point. Unfortunately I don't have enough PTO (paid time off) or EIB (extended illness bank) hours to cover the time off, so looks like someone is going to have to deal for awhile. 

Christy passed her EMT class including the state exam and is a certified EMT. She starts the West Valley Fire Academy this Monday April 11th. She is determined to be a Firefighter, despite having a bum knee, and I'm not standing in this lady's way. She is one determined woman, and if anyone can do it she can. 

I started a new job at the University of Utah Hospital working as a P.T.  in acute care. For those of you who can't keep up, I now work full-time at St. Mark's Hospital, and PRN at Intermountain Medical Center and the University of Utah Hospitals. I also occasionally fill in at Lakeview Hospital in Bountiful. Chances are if you end up in a hospital in Utah, and need P.T., you may be seeing me. I've been super busy, but love being a P.T.  It's a very rewarding profession. 

I'm addicted to Groupon and Living Social and have bought some great things recently including kickboxing classes, family portraits, summer passes to Seven Peaks Water Park and my most insane purchase Boot Camp for 30 days. I start April 18th at 5:30 a.m. 3x/week. Somebody needs to kick my butt into shape since I'm not doing a good job. The next picture is how I imagine my instructor being the 1st day of class.
