Update Time

The boys are at school enjoying their last full day today! Tomorrow they get out at 11:30...then it is summer vacation!!!!
I am still in for another week, next Weds. is my final exam for anatomy. I am most likely going to be repeating this course, but hopefully I will do much better the second time around.
Claud is still in a ton of pain daily, his doctor was supposed to look into getting him an MRI on his shoulder but so far we have heard nothing back from them. Not really sure at this point what is going on with that.

I am looking forward to this summer a lot! I am hoping that we can do lots of fun things with the kids, and really make the most of it. The years seem to be slipping by so quickly for us, it is hard to imagine in a couple weeks Dillion will be 6 and a month after that Cj will be 8! Where did the time go?

I hope you are all having a great day! I plan to study mine away!

Howdy Ya'll

Things here are okay. The kids only have 6 1/2 days of school left!!!! I have 2 weeks....then it is summer fun, well maybe a little fun!

There really is nothing too new to discuss really. Claud got a call back from the Dr. office and they have decided to try and get him in for an MRI on his shoulder. I am hopeful this will lead us somewhere, as he is still in so much pain all the time. I don't want him to live the rest of his life this way.

I can't believe it but in a month Dillion will be 6 years old...OMG how times flies when you are having fun!

The kids and Claud took part in the parade on Memorial Day....ever seen a 30 year old man on a 110cc quad pulling a trailer full of looks a lot like this...and is kinda funny

Hope this picture has brightened your day...I know it did mine when I received it from a friend today!

Just a quick update on us

It has been a while since I updated...sorry about that. Things are going ok for us at this point. The kids are ready to be out of school for the summer and I have 5 more weeks to go before I am finished for summer.
I am trying to pass all my classes this term, and that is about all I can do. The anatomy class is kicking my butt. I think the problem is I am not getting enough study time. By the time I can sit down in quiet and study I am so tired I can't focus. I am just doing the best that I can do at this point.
The kids are doing well, I just recieved their school pictures and they are so cute! This week is charter school week for the boys so they have been having all kinds of fun daily activities. Today is their music program, and they have a 60's theme. Yesterday they got to go skating...the really cool part was CJ & Dillion were on the same field trip...which Dillion loved, had his big brother to help him skate!
Savannah is doing well too. She talks non-stop and moves non-stop. She keeps us on our toes that's for sure.
I just can't believe that in one month Dillion will be 6...and in 2 months CJ will be time sure flies with these kiddos!

Claud had a Dr. appt yesterday about his shoulder. This time he saw a specialist, who actually knew what he was talking about. He seems to think Claud tore his rotator cuff and may have a pinched nerve to go with it. He gave him a Cortizone injection, and basically that was all that can be done. At this point in time, Claud is self employed and I am unemployed, so he has no any further things that could be done are way out of reach for us. Which is unfair but it is the way the world works.

Other than that we are all fine and well. Hope you all are too!

Updates from Monday

Well yesterday was not a great day for me, I was just in *itch mode I guess! Today is looking to turn out better at least slightly! We have found out a little more about the thing I am stressing over so much, but will know hopefully a lot more in a week or so. Hoping it all works out the way it should!

As for my turkey hunting experience they say a picture is worth a 1000 words so here ya go:

As for the words to go with it, I got this boy about 30 minutes into my hunt on opening day...made for a quick season lol. He was 24# with a 10-1/2" beard and 1" spurs. Not shabby for my 1st turkey hunt, and shockingly it was a 1 shot -1 kill thing for me! He fell as soon as he was hit, which made me feel all that much better!

As for Claud's shoulder we went to the Dr. yesterday and were referred to their other office to be seen by their orthopedic now we wait until May 5th to know more. He is still working, although he shouldn't but we have no other option. The Dr. yesterday looked at him and said "whoa!" seems to be the normal reaction anymore. I am just hoping for the best.

Well hope you all have a great week! I have to study a bit...or nap with Savannah not sure what I am going to do yet :)

Going Hunting Again.....

It is a rainy Monday morning here! I am going to be out turkey hunting in an hour or so, not really looking forward to sitting in the rain (in a pop-up) but I am sure I will live.
This is the first time I have ever tried turkey hunting, I am only a little excited about it...I much prefer deer hunting. But we shall see how this goes I may change my mind by the end of the day who knows?
In other news by tomorrow Claud and I will hear something that may be life changing for us. At this point I'd rather not say what that something is but I can say that it will be a positive thing for our family and especially for our children. It is also something I didn't think was going to happen this soon but somehow has.
Also tomorrow Claud goes to the Dr. about his shoulder...hoping for good news on it!
Well I hope you all have a good day!

Party Day

Hey everyone hope you are all great this morning! It is party day for me! Which also means it is cleaning day ughhh. I like having these little get togethers and I really enjoy having people at my house but I do not enjoy the cleaning that goes along with it....mainly because I am a perfectionist when it comes to cleaning before people

I attended my basic anatomy class last night....yep it scared me! There is so much to know, and I have to actually know it not just memorize it. This may end up being a two time test...who knows? I am going to give it all I have and see what happens I guess!

The boys are enjoying their spring break, they have been counting how many days they have until the have to go back to school! Each day they say "5 more days" etc.
It's ok they don't know it but I am counting too! :)

Well have a wonderful day!

Oh man

How is everyone doing today? Hopefully you are all well on this snowy Tuesday morning. I am doing ok, just planning to spend the day cleaning house in preparation for my party on Thursday night.
On another note Claud is not doing as well. He ended up at urgent care on Sunday, he has been having a lot of pain for a week in his shoulder and up his neck. The doctor at urgent care seemed to think he has torn his rotator cuff. Which is bad...yes those were the doctors exact words...which I found slightly funny, just because I have never had a doctor say "that's bad" before.
We are going tomorrow to his new dr. to fill out paperwork and hopefully the following week he can be seen. At this point there isn't a whole lot that he can do. He is at work today but he really can't lift anything and he can't put his arms above his head. Too many years of the work he does has finally caught up to him I suppose. At this point we are hoping the other dr will find it is just a pinched nerve or something...but it doesn't look promising. Although with physical therapy he should be able to get back to a usable state with it.
Well I am off to clean and do some laundry!
