Here are some of the highlights from this weekend. ..

1. One of my dad's lawyer friends was fuming when he heard what happened with my dad and has received permission from the state to appeal the case for him....and he is doing it pro bono....aren't friends just the best?

2.Jared was home....that is always a highlight for me. We went out to dinner with out the nice (thanks Crystal). AND Jared received a letter from the FBI asking him to test. Hahaha the timing couldn't be more funny. We put his application in with them over a year ago, and then updated it a few months ago with his job change and his graduation from BSU. Of course they scheduled his test for right smack dab in the middle of his POST academy...they said if he had any conflicts with his test date to contact them so he is going to speak with them to see if there is another time he can test. I guess we will see what happens.

3. I got in a fight with a huge piece of wood and the wood won. On Saturday Jared and I were out running all sorts of errands....picked up a huge tool board to hang in the garage and then got stuck at the car place trying to figure out the situation with the tires on my car (they keep going flat). Well after waiting for like an hour I ended up taking the boys home in the truck to feed them and get Tayden down for a nap. I pulled into the driveway and totally forgot that Jared had that huge piece of tool board (I don't know what it is really called...wood) hanging out the back of the truck...I got out and went to run around the back of the truck to get Tayden out and BAM! I freakin got clothes lined right in the face at the level of my teeth. It knocked me straight on my butt...I was seeing stars....and my mouth was full of blood. I thought for sure I had knocked out some of my teeth. Luckily I had just jacked the crap out of my lip, nose, and cheek...and my gums were bleeding from the force....if you can say luckily. I skinned my face by my nose and still hurts just thinking about it.

4. We had a superbowl gathering at our house tonight as soon as we got out of 6:00....ught I hate 3:00 church! Anyway great food....and lots to talk about with my sisters. It was a lot of fun. The kids were totally being crazy...but the is pretty normal for them these days.

5. I am exhausted now....I'm gonna go to sleep.

I talked to Alysha the other day about your Dad. She made me feel so much better about the whole thing. I hope everything works out for him. And...sorry to hear about the board "incident"...ouch.

I hope everything works out better for you dad, that seriously sounds so bogus. And holy cow 3:00 church, I think I would die! Glad you didn't knock out any teeth!

I hope things get better with your dad. My dad talked to him and said he didn't sound too concerned now that there will be an appeal. That's so sad that you got the smack knocked out of you! Congrats to Jared on the FBI. Roger really wants to be in the FBI too, but we're going to do the PA route first hopefully and than see what happens.

Oh Your Face!! I'm so sorry! I wish you posted a picture! :) Take the job with the FBI so you can live by me!

Kimmy said...

Wow, you've got all sorts of things going on. I'm glad there's some action your dad can take to work this out!! Oh, your poor face! That is totally something I would've done.

Hey, are you free this week?

Elizabeth Cranmer said...
