Holy Shizzle!

It's been forever since I posted on this thing. I almost forgot I had a blog! We've been up to our eyeballs with busy-ness. When I say busy I really do mean busy, not just the busy some people use when they want to appear as if they do something important. I started massage therapy school in September and go until the end of June. Charles decided since I wasn't going to be home during his lunch hour anymore he may as well go ahead and finish his degree and get that done once and for all. He's been going to school like a crazy man. We're only in our 30's, we're figuring out what we want to do when we grow up. Slow and steady wins the race, right?!

Charles coached Josh's soccer team this year and they actually turned out to be a pretty good team. When the season started we had some questionable players on the team but they had all learned how to play soccer by the end of the season. Charlie and Ryan's team made it to the championship game and ended up losing 4-2. It was a frustrating game. Not to brag, but all of my kids are magnificent soccer players and it is a little irritating to see big ol' kids out there twiddling the ball and not putting it in the goal. If you haven't played soccer by the time you're 14, now is not the time to "try" it out. It is a very fast paced game with lots of running, so if you're chubby, try something else, like....knitting or golf.

I started a food co-op, back in August, with a good friend of mine. I like doing it except for when the times comes to actually get out there and do it! It really is a pain in the butt, however, I always feel good once it's done. Lots of people use the co-op as their only source for fruits and veggies. Besides it is only every other week and my family helps me a ton with it!

Christmas was sensational! It was nice for all of us to get a 2 week break with no responsibilities. We slept late, played the wii for hours at a time and ate like pigs. Not the most spiritual thing to do, I know, but we did have a great time. I must put a plug in for Charlie, who did not partake in our idolatry. He was putting an irrigation system in for some guy from church.

Massage therapy school is 4 days a week. I drive to Tucson for those 4 days. It is a 75 minute drive there and back. I wake at 5 a.m. every morning and I am not a morning person. I do love school though. I didn't think I would after all those years out of high school but it is very different learning as an adult. Now before you go thinking "it's only massage therapy school" I will have you know it is quite hard. Anatomy and physiology were a killer. I had to study my butt off and I will add that I've had the highest grade in the class for the last 5, maybe 6 classes!

I forgot to consider I would have to work close with people that annoy me. For 15 years I have worked in my home with people that annoy me but I love them dearly and would die for all of them. I can't say the same thing for a percentage of the people in my class. They annoy me but there is not one person I would consider dying for! I guess I should have known there was going to be a certain number of homosexual men having a desire to be massage therapists. Here's my question about them.... if homosexuals are attracted to the same sex, why do they try so hard to look and act like the opposite sex? I don't care what your sexual preference is, but don't shove it down my throat.

Anyway, life is good for now. 2010 didn't start off so hot but it did end up well. Hope all my readers out there are doing fabulous. Heck, maybe you forgot about this blog altogether!
