We went down to Capital Reef one day and on the way back we saw this cop car parked along the side of the road so we slowed down and looked inside of it and sure enough there was a blow up cop doll inside the car. I couldn't help it, I had to take a picture of it because I had never seen it before. I hope you all get a kick out of it as well.

More vacation stuff.

This is Calf Creek Falls. There was a pool of water at the bottom that we could swim in and Nate was playing fetch with Bandit. Because of my surgery I could not get in. I just watched and put my feet in the water.


We just got back from our family vacation. This year we went to Boulder Mountain. My favorite part of the vacation, other than being with the family, was the slot canyons near Escalante that we hiked. The pictures don't do it justice, it was a very pretty area. At the entrance of one of the slot canyons was a rattlesnake. I was real worried about taking Bandit past it becaues he tends to chase everything that move so me and Bandit stayed behind while Darrell, Nate, and my Dad went on. Alittle while later they came back because they had found a pool of water that Bandit could lay in (he was extremely hot, thirsty, and tired). Luckily the rattle snake did not move when we walked by and we saw another one the shook its rattle but didn't come after us.
By the time we went through 4 of the slot canyons a storm was getting pretty close so we decided to call it quits for the day.

For those of you who haven't already heard, I had surgery on Wednesday. It appears that I have a Stage 3 endometriosis. (Stage 4 is the worst). I guess I had enometriosis all over inside of me. It was on my Colon and Appendix and I had some Cysts as well. The doctor got it all. I'm pretty excited because maybe some day we'll be able to have kids. Also for the last couple of years I have had some stomach problems, where I just felt real nauseated and nasty. Well the endometriosis was probably causing that as well. It will be great to feel normal again.
As for right now, I'm feeling alright. I don't really feel the pain from where I was cut open, my shoulder and throat hurt the worst. I'm still on some pain killers. My mom was here until Friday then she went back to Delta. Darrell has been very good to me. He took Wednesday off work and was by my side side just about the whole time.

So today I was cleaning a guys house. It's only the 2nd time that I have been there and the house needed ALOT of work. There were spider webs and cob webs all over the place.
I decided to clean the blind and I noticed some spider web behind them. I pulled them up and sure enough I saw the spider's egg sack. I grabbed some paper towel and threw it away. I walk back to the blinds and there was about 30+ little baby spiders all over the place. Trying so hard to not scream in my clients home I sprayed them with my cleaner. Then I went back to work and started cleaning the blinds. I was almost done when all of a sudden a big HUGE black spider drops right in front of me!! Had I been 6 inches closer to the window, the spider would have landed on my head. I just about freaked out. I got my client to ome help me get it out of his house. He then starts explaining to me that he doesn't kill spiders. He said, "I'm to big of a softie." 2 minutes later I had to go out to my car to get something and sure enough the spider was back on his door step waiting to be let back in. The rest of the time I probably saw 20 more spiders. The next two hours I was sure that I had spiders crawling all over me. So that was my exciting day! That man has never on bug bommed his house or had an exterminater come. CRAZY OLD MAN!!

Scary Dog

Here is Rachel's(my sister) daughter Adrianne and my dog Bandit. This was taken over the 4th of July in Delta. When Adrianne was younger she was ran over by Bandit. It terrified her!! She also saw Bandit jump on her Grandpa and again it TERRIFIED her. I thought that she was going to be afraid of all dogs because that. I will admit, a 70 lb. extremely hyper dog would probably scare me too. She loves him now though. WAHOO!!


This is my dog Bandit. He's about 2.5 years old. He's just about the cutest dog ever.
I live a fairly boring life that pretty much consist of Darrell, my hubby, and Bandit.
