Thankgiving 2010

I had thanksgiving dinner at John's house this year. I did most of the cooking myself, dad did bring some green beans and potatoes. Only the second time I've cooked on thanksgiving in 23 yrs. The only thing that went wrong was I forgot to make the gravey.

After dinner the kids crashed on the couch. Diane, Lisa, Amanda and myself went for a walk. we walked around the yard at first then decided to walk to the end of the road and back, we walked at least a mile. We had to walk in order to digest some of the food we ate.

My mom started going through some really odd spells. I came home for lunch monday it's was like she was passed out but mumbling something, I couldn't get her to respond. When I finally did she was still out of it but she was like choking on her tongue, she lost her teeth, she would drink water like she was a dog slurping the water like she's never had it. Then she'd go out again, then she would go through her heavy breathing, finally called ems they took her to hospital this attack went on for 45min. she finally stopped after getting to hospital but there she was confused not remembering nothing. She did it again wednesday night but not as bad, this time I got in on my camera video, to show the drs that it's not nothing we're not making it up. I don't want mom to know about the video it might make her upset.
During mondays adventure when trying to get mom to come to, mamaw tells me she only needs a blanket and tries to push me away, I told her no I need to get her awake she gets mad and hauls off and hits me twice, I feel sooo bad but I hit her back. Mamaw is becoming violent here lately, I understand she wants to be helpful, but we dont yell at her, we tell her nicely but she gets mad and violent, she has hit about 5 of us I know about. I still love her and give her hugs and kisses. Dad's having a hard time, I try to be there as much as I can to help but since I moved to Johns house it's making it really hard.

Day at Park

Lisa and I went to the park today, we rode about 15 miles, and then we sat down by the water it was just so pretty and blue. The first picture I took a couple days ago when I went by myself. I love riding in this park by the water it's just pretty and calming.

There were so many boats on the water today, sailboats, speedboats, bigger boats and ships plus this guy in a canoe.

By the way if you haven't heard Becky is gonna have a baby they just found out this week.

Lisa and I have been going to the park walking and riding our bikes. Lisa couldn't go saturday so I went by myself. Big mistake! the park was full of fish flies. They swarmed me like fresh meat. I tried to shoo them away but they kill easy, I got bug juice all over my shirt. I thought that if I rode my bike it would be ok. I even wore my helmet which I bought special because it has a net where the holes are so bugs don't get in. It worked no bugs in my hair but they kept landing on my sunglasses. As long as I was by the water they were bad, through the woods on the other side of park was no bugs. I only made it once around the park, I couldn't take the bugs anymore.

I took these pictures at the park, because the water looked so pretty. This first one was taken through the window of my truck. The other one while on the path fighting off the bugs.

Lisa and I have been going to the recreation center and taking fitness classes. We decided to do a yearly membership, we were able to split the cost with just a small add-on fee for the second person. The first person said we couldn't because we lived in seperate households. It's always a good idea to ask a different person. Now we both are able to take as many classes as we want for a year. I've decided to try kickboxing, we'll see how that goes. I'm also trying a Bosu training class, never been on a bosu ball this should be real interesting.

Spring Break

Since I'm off this week I've been trying out different exercise classes at the recreation center. Monday I tried fab abs, Alex had to tag along no one to watch him I was gonna let him sit at back of room. The instructor said he could join 1/2 way through the class he decides to join. Today I went to a 90 min cardio with sculpting and toning. Lisa took a day off work so she could try the class with me. We got a good workout. We then went bike riding for about 6miles. We went out to eat, after we got home he laid on my chair and passed out. I do the classed in the evening but some are only offered during the day, so I'm taking advandage and trying the classes on my week off.

Nothing much going on it's spring and it's getting colder. After the week of nice weather I was spoiled. Lisa and I went to our exercise class this morning, were going walking but was a little sore, so we went shopping first the were on our way to walk.
Our Governor wanted to make saturday a don't eat meat day. I couldn't resist Lisa and I went to Texas Roadhouse and had a nice big steak. (It was sooooo good). We came to mom & dad's house and painted my pedestal, (I'm doing Easter pictures at school Monday). Lisa and I never made it to the park to walk, I was cold all day. Brrrrrrrrr!

What a Day!

I had a jury summons and had to report today =( I was in the forth group that was called up, it was a long process at first. I thought they were happy with their selection after they got rid of a few. Then they started getting rid of a lot more and at 2:30 I was called up yuk! I had a sheet of paper with questions on it that I was suppossed to answer. The defendant and others were from the neighborhood close by. I made sure they knew that, I also told them I was held up with a gun to my head in a robbery. The defense didn't want me, and that was ok by me. ^_^

Weekend Happenings.

My kitchen ceiling leaks and John would never fix it. He really don't care now, he was here saturday, looked at it then just left. Can't afford to fix it right now so the next best thing is to put up a tarp. My nephew Micheal and his friend put it up for me. Instead of fixing the problem John's remedy was to put a bucket in the attic, it didn't work. My kitchen ceiling is not looking to good, it's about ready to fall.

Happy Birthday / Anniversary

Everyone got together Saturday and celebrated dad's birthday and their anniversay.
We had a Mexican Fiesta.

We got this tray full of food in chicken and we got another one just like it but made with beef.
Dad doing his mexican dance.

Everyone waiting for food.

After all the food we had desert 2 cakes and a jello. Out of all the food there was very little left, I guess we over indulged ourselves.
