A Good Week

It has been a good week. To start off Derek is finally off call after two long weeks. He came home from work with good news. That he got the 40 hours overtime he needed to take off work to go to Colorado. So now we don't have to take a week off with no pay. Praise the Lord. The weather has been really nice. I got out of the house and mowed. And I have even managed to go for a couple of runs this week. Which I must say that i was like to die trying to get threw 3 miles. I have got out of the routine of walking so I'm not used to it anymore. But as of next week I'm going to get back on track.
Jamey and the kid's have been down. So it's been a bunch of fun. We played a few games of hand and foot to all hours of the night, and Disney Scene It. And ate! It's going to be very sad when they leave tomorrow:(

What a trip

Well I'm back from Colorado. It was a long weekend. I think i got a total and three hours of sleep the whole weekend. The trip down there took 13 hours. I got to visit with my grandma, mom, dad, Tim, my best friend, and my grandpa who i hadn't seen in years. I spent Saturday going to yard sales. I got a bunch of stuff. Then i meet with my best friend for lunch/ dinner. Then we went shopping. It was fun. Saturday evening i spent with my dad, grandpa and some friends of the family. I felt very out of place with everyone. I grew up with Spanish as almost a first language and over the years i stopped talking it. I can understand it but can't speak it as fluent as i should. So everyone in the house was speaking it. So i was just sitting there. Every now and then i would say something. But for the most i just sat there. Sunday I took my mom out for breakfast and spent a couple of hours with her. Then went to my grandma's to pack. Then i went up to Colorado springs for church. After that we went for dinner and jumped on the road. We drove for four hours and stopped in Colby, Kansas for the night. We got up that morning and left around 9:30. It took us 10 hours then to get to Pryor. Making it a total of a 14 hour trip. It was very long. It is so good to be back home. Even though i spent the day doing laundry, a sink full of dishes, and cleaning the whole house. Well that's all for now.

Back Again

Well its been awhile since i have blogged, because i usually leave that to my wonderful wife. But this weekend has been a bit different. First of all thursday night leanndra decided she had to go to colorado to pick up her car, because her dad went to the doctor and found out he had diabetes, so the doctor didn't want him traveling just getting on the medicine, so we would appreciate your prayers for him. So anyways she had to go up there with pop and gramma to pick up jamey and the kids while dus is at BTI. So this whole weekend i have been baching it. well actually i have been staying at heather and aaron's house. Eventhough i am grown i still rely on my big sis to take care of me when my wife is away. This is my first weekend without leanndra since we have been married so i don't know what to do with all my spare time. I have gotten plenty of sleep this weekend. But I definitely miss her. But i am glad she got to go surprise her mom for mothers day, and visit her dad.

I also want to say Happy Mothers Day. Just in case anybody was wondering, I Love My Mom. Sometimes when i haven't seen my mom in awhile i tell leanndra how bad i miss her. Probably the best part of my mom is that she raised me in The Church and taught me about the Bible. That will definitely stick with me the rest of my life. no matter how far i might move away from her i will never forget what she taught me when i was just a little boy. And no i am not saying i am moving anywhere anytime soon. I LOVE YOU MOMMA.

Rain, rain go away! It has been raining for as long as i can remember. Rain plus curly hair is a bad combo. I have to wear my hair curly this causing me to have to buy hairspray ever three days and shampoo ever five days. It's getting pretty expensive. Any way Derek is on call for two weeks. With it storming ever day this week he is going to be getting a lot of overtime. Which wouldn't be bad but we started revival last night with Bro. Smith. He was able to be there for last night service. So that was good. But as the week goes on he will be drained. He got to sleep two hours before being called out last night. Then he came home and got to sleep another two hours before having to be back at work for another eight day.
Well I am looking forward to getting to see my dad. He is coming out some time this month. To bring me my car and visit. He hasn't be able to come out and see me since my wedding . So it is going to be kinda strange having him stay for awhile with us at our home. I don't know if he has really realized how grown up and on my own i am. Even though i haven't lived with him for four years. I'm kind of nervous of to how it will be. I guess will see though. Well I rambled enough for now.

OK it has be along time I am surprised i have an account still. But I have had a few people asking why I haven't been blogging. The reason being I didn't think I had anything important to say and I didn't think anybody really cared. But I was wrong I guess. So I'm back. Well I'm trying to think if anything big happen in the last two months. We had a good Easter. And a few weeks ago we had a wonderful Youth Convention. The Lord is so great to us. We were able to go to Tulsa for revival with Bro. Smith two nights. Bro. Smith will be in Pryor for a four day revival next week. Heather had Asthton's birthday party at pizza hut. It was so cute. Derek will be holding a revival in Pueblo, Colorado the first of June. Which is nice because i will get to see my family this summer when I thought i wasn't going to. The Lord works in so many ways. So if you could keep that in your prayers we would both appreciate it. It is going to be his first revival. We will also get to be there for Aleah's first birthday. Well that's all for now so till next time ttly
