Last week a former co-worker; Paul Downs was killed in an ATV accident. He was one of the really good, decent men in this world. I was saddened to learn of his death. He was only 39 yrs young and left behind a family, how sad. Death comes to us all but it is harder when it is unexpected and so young, so rest in peace Paul till we meet again in the afterlife.......

Zac decided he wanted to stay up and welcome in the New Year so we all played couch potatoes until midnight. It was kinda fun snuggling with Zac and Rick. Of course I got a New Years kiss from my favorite man! And then I woke up to a migraine in the early morning hours. Seems like I've been on a bad migraine cycle the last year, getting them about every two weeks if not more. It really bites since most of the meds out there don't work for me and the state of Utah does not stock demerol at the ER's anymore. I tried to explain to a Doc a few months ago that I've been getting demerol shots for years and that it works just fine for me but he told me that too many patients have reactions to it that they deem it not good to keep around..... sigh......

there was alot of moaning.... groaning & general whining from students & employees at Jordan District this week because we had to go to work & school until friday the 23rd. Keep in mind that every other district in the state of Utah were done by wednesday...... I would have liked to be done by wed. but hey..... if I'm scheduled to work I go to work! Friday going home my elementary students were so cute...... I had a whole bus full of kids singing Christmas carols the whole ride home! I have really great kids from all three schools!

One of the advantages of Rick being unemployed is the time he gets to spend with Zac....... the other morning they were having a discussion about whether Santa is real or not. Zac still believes in Santa and one of his friends keeps telling him that Santa is make believe..... so.......
Zac; Dad is Santa real?
Rick; what do you think?
Zac; Dakota says he's fake and your parents buy the gifts from Santa with money from your bank. Zac told Dakota that his parents are broke.....
Rick tried to explain the 'spirit' of Santa to Zac and his response.......
So you've been lying to me for 10 yrs? Rick said no he hadn't and then Zac said.....
So Santa is a ghost?
Out of the mouths of babes!

I was just reading a bit from my cousins blog..... Anna... she was younger than I growing up but as adults and definetely with the advent of Facebook I have reconnected with many peolple from the first part of my life..... but by spending time on FB I have neglected my blog. I had wanted to turn it into more of a personal type journal but I'm not sure if that's possible..... when you write in a journal you can let out all the things you feel & think, good, bad & ugly and I don't believe it's necessary to broadcast all of that. I've made it a point in my life nto not broadcast alot of the negative things that I have experienced but it's also part of making me who I am.... the good, bad & ugly.
We are now living in West Valley City, Utah. After 5 years in Nevada. It's good to be home & close to our family again but also on the flipside I miss alot of things about Spring Creek. It was quiet & peaceful and living on 2 acres was really nice. I also really liked my jobs ther4 nit that I made more money than I do here but it was interesting & entertaining & challenging too......
It's been a tough year since we've been back. We moved to American Fork in Michael & Lonaka's basement but that didn't last..... don't know if I want to go into the details about that just yet. Then my wonderful mother took us in..... that was good except all three of us where sharing a room, a big room but one room none the less. In June I sold my Harley and we rented this 2 bedroom duplex in WVC. It is in the ghetto but we're in our own place again and can start rebuilding our life.
