What in the world happen to the month? I woke up this morning and realized it was September! (Well day after tomorrow) Everyday is busy, busy! I get up get dressed take Trey to school at 6:30.... He starts the day in football strength and conditioning, then orchestra, four AP classes, Spanish two and then back to football! All I do is go to work after I drop him off, Work until 5:30 or 6:00 pick him up from football, and then come home to work until bedtime... I'm still riding at least three times a week to get ready for the Compestella De Santiago. Don't know when I am going or which route I am going to take, but I know I am going to do it! I have been looking for a new pack and have everything else I'm gonna need. Sherrie has been off work for about a month, which has been really nice. It's almost like having a regular life again. She is still in clinicals for another 6 months, but we will be there before you know it. Monday night, Trey had his first football game. His team played Stillwater... Stillwater is about an hour and a half north of us.... The game was suppose to start at 7:30, but it was closer to 9:00 when they started. By the time we beat Stillwater 61-42 and the buses got back to the school it was 1:00am! Needless to say Trey didn't make it to school Tuesday. Yesterday we had the Varsity Pre-game dinner at the school. We participated and had a good time. The varsity plays tonight in Midwest City, so I am going to go over straight from work, and Sherrie and Trey will be over closer to game time. The Santa Fe High School Touch Down Club, really knows how to put on a tail gate party! They bring out RV's, and have weed eater powered blenders! I am excited for this game! Trey's school Vs. The team from where I work! Goooooo Wolves!
Love you all!

Well... Have I ever told you how much Mondays SUCK? The week was pretty crazy... Patty was off three days, Alicia was off three days, and Stephanie was off two days so it was Diane and I most of the week.... Did we sit around and feel sorry for ourselves???? NOPE! We admitted 17 patients! Trey had football everyday last week from 8am until 1:00pm on Tuesday, till 3pm on Wednesday, till 2:30 on Thursday and then Friday was pretty easy from 5:30am till 9:30am. They had early practice so the student athletes could go get their schedules. Trey has weight training first hour, then AP Biology, AP Algebra two, AP Oklahoma History, AP English, and then Spanish two, before heading back to the field house for football. That boy is going to be hella busy! I got up and rode early Saturday morning, before coming home and cleaning up for his first high school scrimmage... It was the green and white game. Before the scrimmage had even started he had sprain his ankle and was on the trainers table getting taped up. He did pretty well for a gimp! We came home and iced him down, then ended up at the mall to see the new Batman. Sunday morning we worked at church and then Sherrie and I did our shopping before heading out to the lake to ride. It was horribly hot and windy! Up early to take Trey to boot camp then on to work. Alicia broke her foot this weekend, so I was short handed again. I left right on time so I could get Trey from practice and get him home. I fixed him some dinner and then went to the lake to ride. This is Sherrie's last week of evening clinicals. I'll be glad when this week is over!
Love you all!

Well it was a busy week... Seems like there was something everyday that had to be done or somewhere to be. I guess that is the way it is... Friday at 5:00 could not come early enough. Work was horrible this week. As everyone in health care knows, numbers go down during the summer, but the pressure to maintain census never takes a break. This week is going to be a challenge... Patty is off Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and Alicia is off Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We have a mandatory parents meeting today at Treys school for football, and then he starts two a days tomorrow. I know I am all over the place, but going back to Saturday.... Sherrie and I left for Texas at about 8:00am to pick Trey up from the Laskey's. We made good time to get to the Gainsville outlet mall by 10:00am. Well guess what? The mall is out of business! I remember just a few years ago, when people would drive from Edmond to shop there! We headed over to Anna, which is east of McKinney and visited with Herman and Silvia before taking them to lunch at this little country cafe. It was called Crow's. I had some catfish and fried green maters. Herman drove us around their town and then we loaded up and drove home. We stopped in Norman and had Jordan cut Trey's hair before coming home. Yesterday we all got up and went to church... We came home and were pretty lazy for a couple of hours before deciding to go see the new Total Recall movie. It was pretty darn good! We got Trey a new pair of shoes for school and then came home. The minute we got home we decided to go to dinner, and then hit the grocery store. I spent the rest of the evening trying to figure out how I am going to get everything done this week.! ;-(
I usually do not get too preachy or politically opinionated, but dang it there are a couple of recent issues that really bother me!
1.) The Chick-fil-a Homophobic issue... Yes, I understand freedom of speech, and I believe everyone has a right to their opinion. My question is what good did it do to make these inflammatory statements about what they consider to be "Their" family values? If they would open the cover of their bibles that they say they are standing behind they would see that judging people based on who they love is as wrong as them having an affair, or defrauding their company. Sin is sin... You wanna do something Pray for them. I screw up everyday. My sin is no different than someone in a same sex marriage sinning! All sin is sin! Hey Christians.... There will be gay people in heaven! Yep!!!!! If you understand Grace, you will see that it doesn't matter what you do or how often you do it. Grace covers sin, and the whole Cristian religion is based on the fact that God covers sin with blood of Christ. Any problem with those statements maybe you should read the book "Pure Grace." I have several copy's if you want to borrow one.
2.) The Right Winged Fear Factor.... I know that we are in the election period; However, scaring people in believing that if the Democrats win the election again that they are going to lose their guns, and everyone will be running around in the streets having abortions. Here are a few truths.... a.) If you are a male, you should have NO opinion about abortion! That is a medical decision between a female and her doctor. That doesn't mean that it is right or wrong... It means this is a female reproductive issue, butt out! b.) So as I am writing this post I see that some right winged wacko job walked into a mosque in Wisconsin and started shooting people who he thought were Muslim? Oh.... I forgot! We don't need gun control, or a better gun laws to prevent wacko jobs from having access to thousands of rounds of ammunition. Why are there so many more mass killings in the US than in European countries? How many people in this country want me to have an assault weapon? I ask Sherrie last night and she said "NO!" I can go out today sign some papers and have an assault weapon in a week or less? Not cool! We have police and military... They need assault weapons not Jim-Bob on the street. I own guns and have had them since I was 10 years old. My father taught me to hunt, but since my trip to Nepal I have learned that there is no real reason to do that either. Does that mean I will never hunt again? Probably not; However, I get more please out of hunting with my camera. I do not get any pleasure out of gutting a deer, or a hog... Heck I wont clean a fish. Why do that when the store is a block away?
That is about all the ranting I have for today... I do have another subject to vent about, but it can wait for another day!
Love you all!
