We're BAAACK...

Is it just me or has it gotten really busy lately? I guess I had this expectation that things would be calmer after the holidays...but not so. Nothing out of the ordinary mind you...I just am a mess as usual and have too much to do! It may not get better for the rest of this month either. I don't think I've mentioned yet, but our brand new computer crashed two weeks after we got it taking 6 months of business finances with it. Take into account this is the computer we bought because we were afraid our laptop was on it's last leg. That was November...laptop is still working... Well, now it's tax time...but I don't have until April to reconstruct everything...I have until the end of this month to get it done! I'm really dreading it and keep putting it off. So if you don't hear from me again soon...I'm hopefully working on taxes :) Otherwise we are doing well. I have insanely agreed to participate in a mini triathalon in 4 weeks. 1/4 mile swim, 10 mile bike, 3 mile run. I think I might die in the process, but hopefully it will be good for me. I've worked out every day this week and since I'm now announcing this publicly...more motivation to follow through!!!! Wish me luck!

Joe is still enjoying work...and happy to still have a job. Budget cuts go deep. Funny enough enrollment at SUU has continued to grow (I think it was at 6% last accounting). But somehow they think the solution is to bite the hand that feeds you. What can you do though? Everyone is hurting. No fear for now though...I am pretty sure his job is safe.

Kelley is great. She loves school and is still just a sweetheart. She loves to have me document everything she does...block towers, pictures, cute things Tyler does. Tyler is sick again...not sure what it is this time, but he's been wheezing for the past week and it's only getting worse as we try to do more and more breathing treatments. The question is do we go back to the doctor and have him tell us to do the same thing? He is getting a fever again though...can't wait for spring!

OK, so I'm attaching a few cute pictures. We finally found the missing camera cord. Wahoo!

During the hospital stay: on the way to the X Ray room

The little mother saying goodnight....
New Years at my Parents house
Little mother again helping him out.  I know we are terrible, but when I have snow pants that fit him, it's hard to justify buying more...so he goes out in Pink every once in a while...

those pictures of Tyler in the hospital make me want to cry. It just breaks my heart to see kids at hospitals. I hope he feels better again soon. Hang in there, only a few more weeks of winter and the Spring will be here. LOVE the pink snow pants, I would do the same thing.

The kids are so adorable, So sad that Tyler has still been sick. You are a brave woman for doing a Triathlon. Good Luck!

So sorry to hear about your computer--I feel your pain!!! And I'm sorry Tyler's sick again.

So, are the files really truly gone or do you think it would be possible to salvage them? Brice does computer work if you think he might be able to help, he saved all of my school files off of a dying flash drive once. It had completely quit with all my files on it and in a blink of life he managed to catch them and extract them off before it was gone for good. :)
