November 2012

Tomorrow I have a CT with oral contrast. Not fun at all. The drink is nasty and it gives you gas. I pay Clint back for 12 years of marriage in one night. =) I always get anxiety around my appointments because they really can go either way. I've been blessed that they have been good this past year, but I never would have imagined to have bad results in the beginning. I can't explain the feelings I have at these appointments. I know I'm suppose to be positive, but it just isn't that easy. I don't think it will ever get easy. I just keep praying that I will be here for along time. I'm not done yet. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. Love, Sumer

Back To School...

It's August already. The boys start school on Wednesday. Nolan will be in 5th and Zachary in 3rd. They both got the teachers they wanted so they are pretty excited. Jaelene starts school the following Monday. Kindergarten has testing the first 3 days and then they start the normal stuff later. Jaelene signed up for full day Kindergarten. She is so excited. She's been driving me nuts with a count down all Summer. Madalie is driving me crazy as well. She keeps talking about when she is going to school. She doesn't quite get that she has to wait another year. I've decided that I'll just teach her from home to make her happy. She's going to drive me nuts while the rest of the kids are at school all day. Oh well she's the last one so I'm going to enjoy my time with her. Clint starts school in the next few weeks. This time he is taking Psychology, Chemistry, and something else. I can't remember. He's not exactly looking forward to it. He took the Summer off, so the break was nice for all of us. I have a check up on the 28th and as always they make me nervous. I'm sure everything will be fine, but I still get anxious. This Summer we went to California for a week and visited some family. Zachary turned 8 in July and we participated in our first Relay for Life in August. Our team collected $2,328.70. We are definitely going to try and beat that next year. I stared a few months later and for it being our first time we did pretty good. Zachary is going to be Baptized on the 1st of September. We are pretty excited about that. Maybe I'll share an update before the new year. =) Thanks for following!

A New Year!

Since I last wrote we have had a lot going on. I had a PET Scan and the results were negative. =) Yay!!! We celebrated Thanksgiving at Clint's parents house. We had a lot to be Thankful for. It was awesome knowing that I didn't have any cancer in my body. I did my crazy black friday shopping. I got some pretty good deals too.

Clint celebrated his 32 birthday. We had Christmas at home with the kids and then went to both Clint and my parents house. I got some really cute shoes and rolled my ankle wearing them. It still hurts and I can't wear heels. I guess it's a good thing that it has started to snow now. Nolan celebrated his 10th birthday. I can't believe I've been a mom for 10 years. We had a nice family party on New Years Eve. Nolan is growing up and wanted clothes, money, and iTune cards. Boring presents from here on out I guess.

January rolled in and we celebrated Madalie's 3rd birthday. That was exciting because it is the first one that she really understands. She was adorable opening her presents and she had a Minnie Mouse themed party. She was so excited.

Clint started school again with a fully load. He is taking two Political Science classes, a P.E. class, Humanities and Anatomy. He is enjoying anatomy. He gets to see cadavers. I guess it's a good thing he is excited about that since he wants to be a Doctor. He is hating his humanities class. That class is going to be the death of one of us. ;)

I'm doing my usual fun stuff. You know like laundry, dishes, and cleaning up the rest of the house. I came to the realization the other day that as soon as my kids move out and I can keep my house clean they will bring the grandkids over. But hey there will at least be a few days where the house is clean. It has started snowing and this time it is sticking to the ground. Last year the day we had our last big storm of the year I was driving down our street which is on a big hill and I spun out. I was already freaking out about hearing the word cancer from my biopsy report earlier that day. The accident didn't do much for my mental state. Luckily the kids and I were fine and there wasn't any major damage to the car. Now I'm terrified of driving in the snow. I'm sure in time I will get over it or move to Arizona. We'll see. I let you know if I will be having a forwarding address.
