What ever shall I do?

Ok, so I'm sorry the last post sounded a bit whiny. My arm is feeling better though.

My kids are all down in Yuma this week with Grandma and Grandpa Farar ( bless their hearts!). Whatever shall I do with myself? This is the quietest Sunday evening I've had in a very long time! Oh the places I could go, and the things that I can do! We'll see just how good I feel to do anything, but continue to lay around!

Doom, Despair, and Agony on me..............

Anybody remember the show "HeeHaw"? For some reason this part of the song keeps going in my head.........I was young, so I don't remember the rest.

So I went to the dr. yesterday morning about this "thorn" I was sure that I had in my leg and couldn't get out. He deadened the area and commenced digging. Luckily Dennis was there to support and hold my hand, I wouldn't have been able to do it without the deadening part for sure. So it turns out that he didn't find anything! I was mad, for all the pain it was I was sure there was something in there. He did find a hole with some stuff in it, where he said that a thorn had probably stuck me, left stuff in my leg then popped right out. Dennis was watching and said that he dug pretty far in there! Uggghh! So he cleaned out the stuff, and then they bandaged me up. Then they said I had to have a tetanus shot! Ouch! I must have tensed my arm, because I am in so much pain! Between my arm, my leg and the numbing stuff wearing off, and being prego and not feeling well, let me tell you, I'm a piece of work!! My arm actually hurts worse than my leg. I can't move it very well!!!! Ouch!!!!! Just put me out and wake me up after the baby is born!!!

Some good news

I had another ultra sound, and everything looked fine. I'm hoping that the placenta problem has fixed itself. I have still not felt the greatest, but I am hitting the three month mark this week so I'm hoping in the next month or so I'll be feeling better.

Oak Creek Canyon and SLide rock

The day before the 4th, I decided to take a Zofran and go on a hike down Oak Creek with Dennis, the kids, and his brother and their kids. I was tired of laying around and wanted to get out, so I thought I would give it a go. The plan was to park up the road from slide rock and hike down the creek to it. Walking in the creek was really hard with all the slippery rocks! We all went down countless times, and got soaked. Needless, to say I'm glad that we didn't take the camera. We had two girls with us from one of Dennis's home teaching families, they were 11 year old twins and had never done anything like that before. After awhile they just wanted to get up to the road and finish hiking along the road. So I took them, ALlison, and my niece Kennadie and we walked along the road. It was really stressful, there is hardly any shoulder to walk on and I was nervous the whole time. Somewhere along there, I brushed against a very thorny bush and got a thorn in my leg. Needless to say I was very relieved when we made it, and exhausted. We beat the other guys by about a half hour or so. I was so tired and needing to lie down that I didn't really get in the water much. The kids enjoyed it though. We stayed there and played for awhile until it started thundering and lightening then decided we had better go. Poor Dennis and Darren had to hike all the way back up the road to get the cars! We were all so tired. I have to say that I am proud of myself for doing it, and I only needed to pull over once once on the way home. I have been really sore, and I still have that thorn in my leg, which is really starting to bother me. Dennis tried digging it out, but I couldn't stand much of that. Any suggestions?


I'm not sure if I spelled that right.

Daniel and Dennis went on a canoe trip with some of the young men in the ward a few weeks ago. From what I heard they tipped the canoe alot and spent most of the time in the water. But still claim they had a great time. I think it was the Verde River they canoed down to Bartlett lake. Dennis was walking around pretty sore for a few days. That's what comes with old age! We have a guy in our ward who works for the sheriff's office and happens to patrol Bartlett lake. He was on duty when they got there, and ended up tying all the canoes, I think there was four to six of them, together and towing them across the lake to the boat dock. Another guy from the ward was on the boat with him and had taken pics of the tow line. It looked pretty funny, all the guys looked absolutely beat. I had some of those pictures emailed to me, but i'M not sure how to get it from an email form on here. We'll see if I can do that sometime.
