I can't believe that I have gotten sick with a nasty cold sinus something. The week started off good too. Work was going great and I was getting tons of stuff done then by WED eve I felt the raspy voice thing coming and MAN O MAN did I feel tired. So I was hoping that all it would be. By THU and FRI it was in full blown cold. Luckily by SAT and SUN I was feeling much better. I must have gotten it from Wyatt as he had it too or maybe we both got it from some other infected person.

Friday we went out to Famous Daves BBQ with my brother and his wife and 2 youngins. Great evening and fun time but I don't know if the cold had anything to do with it but later that night my belly was not in a good mood. I didn't even eat that much. So we are swearing off the fatty foods for good (well lets be honest here...probably just for the next week). But seriously ever since joining the weight management program at work I have lost 25 lbs, been eating healthier, and have also been 'kinda' doing the weight watcher point counting thing with Cynthia (who has lost quite a bit too). But the downside is now my body doesn't have the tolerance for junk/fast food. So when we eat it we usually regret it 15 min after we eat it and then feel sick.

The weather has been super windy which put the kabash on any yard work. No fun working in the garden when dirt gets blown in your eyes. So we spent saturday running errands while I changed oil in the car. Then headed down to Provo, Pleasant Grove to do some computer stuff for sisters and pickup my birthday gift (little giant ladder). It was a busy time but fun time.

Ok so this is the first ever post for the blog. I found that after trying out the myspaces and facebooks that there is just too much clutter and junk on them. I got sick of people inviting me to download the latest facebook app and got sick of all the myspace ads. So I am jumping off into the blog-o-sphere. I can't promise that this will be a daily blog but maybe more like a weekly or every other day thing. Life can get too busy to keep up with having to do a blog.

So this weekend was the 35th birthday. If I remember right my mom said I was born about 8pm in the city of Huron. As I reflect back on my life I can't help but think about all the birthdays I have had and I can't remember any of them that I didn't enjoy. But turning 35 I think you come to a cross road. You are halfway to 40 and so one tends to think about where they have been and where they want to be. I won't bother to reveal all of that mumbo jumbo here but that was pretty much my thoughts on that. The gifts were good ... got some clothes and some games and we went out to eat. Sunday and monday were both beautiful days but then tuesday wow! It snowed? I had a meeting in Salt Lake and didn't bother to grab a jacket. It was a little chilly but I told myself that "ahh you don't need a jacket" boy was I wrong.
