I was told it was time I updated my blog page, so here it is. There will be no photos because for some reason I cannot upload them from work. Life in Provo is moving forward on day to the next. I get up, get ready for work, go to work, spend 9 hours at work, drive home, eat maybe go to the gym maybe watch TV, go to bed at 10:30, sleep then do it all over again.

The weekends are a little different depending on if the girls are visiting or not but mostly its wake up late on Saturday maybe do some shopping if Molly needs anything, finish up the day watching a movie if we rented any. Sunday we get up and go to church, come home have lunch, take a nap, watch a little TV eat something for dinner then get ready for the next day.

Can you all say "rut".

If I could up load pictures you could see the fun things we have done lately. And because a picture is worth a thousand words I will not write to discribe it. I've been told that my spelling is bad and I use the wrong words when I write so this is a good thing.

Well that about sums up July and August without the photos so When I get time or figure out how to up load pictures at work I'll show you some of the fun things I did on my summer vacation.

Busy June

I tried to upload some pictures of Kaycee's graduation but my home computer is sick and I cannot do it from work, sorry. Things have been rather exciting with Kaycee graduation and school getting out for Molly. Makes me wish that I could spend all day doing as I please again. Of course remembering back to my own carefree days as a kid it is only fun for the first few weeks and then boredom sets in.

Molly now has started with summer drill so she is busily going about her drill routine, its a revolving cycle but she enjoys it for now. I am looking forward to the summer movies even if I cannot afford to go. I am hoping that I can at least see the new Harry Potter Movie. The trailers look cool, I'll have to see it by myself I'm affaid, Molly has not gotten into them. To bad I could not go next week while Molly is at drill camp, Oh well such is life.

My work goes the same as always. Drawing lines on a black background hoping when I am done that some can read it and build what ever it is suppose to be. Construction seem to be slowing down a little, at least we don't seem to have as much work as we usually have had during the summer. This does cause me some concern about my job security but I cannot change that so there is no since worring too much.

There you have my life lately, sorry if I didn't spell everything correctly or use the proper form of the word.

Another Day

I decided against the spring theme being that while I enjoy the warm weather and sun shine this is the time of year that the trees grass and weed all start doing there thing to insure the continuation to their species. That means pollen and where there is pollen there is sneezing, running nose and watering eyes for me. I have found that unless you suffer from allergies you are not at all sympathetic with those of us that do.

Here is a brief lesson on Pollen.

What is pollen?

Pollen is the male fertilizing agent of plants, trees, grasses, and weeds, consisting of microscopic, powdery granules. The types of plants which are pollinated by wind are responsible for allergic symptoms as the pollen is light and travels in large quantities in the air. Wind pollination is an ancient form of pollination and is much less efficient than insect pollination. It involves the production of large amounts of pollen that go helter skelter with very little going where it's needed, leaving a lot available for inhalation.

Wind-pollinated plants are very different from insect-pollinated plants. The small, lackluster blossoms are exposed to the wind, and many trees like cottonwoods and box elders blossom early before the leaves come out to get in the way. Those things that would attract insects, such as odor, nectar, and brilliant colors, are absent. The pollen grains are small, lightweight, and dry, and include grasses, common trees, and weeds. Fruit trees and ornamental flowers, which are pollinated by insects, pose few problems for allergy sufferers since this type of pollen is too sticky and heavy to be transported very far by air.

Trees usually pollinate between February and May, grasses between May and July, and weeds from July until the first hard frost. The pollen count is high during extended warm, dry periods, and is low when it is rainy and damp. The count also goes up when it is windy.

For those of you that see me around, No I am not crying my eyes are just watering from the affects of pollen. If you listen for a few minutes you will hear me sneeze. I have high hopes that the allergy shots I have started taking will fix this problem in about five years or so.

March is over?

It looks like March has come and gone or almost gone and I ask myself where did it go?

It is then that I remember all the fun I had this month for it was the month of vacation for me. I started off going to Disneyland the Happiest Place on Earth. This was with the drill team and while I started off having a good time I ended up getting sick and I think ruining the trio for Molly even though she will not say so. This was the trip that I lost my wallet right before we left and I had to try flying without id. Not a recommended idea in case you wanted to try it. It was fun to see another side of Disney that the healthy people don't see, that being a cot in a far off corner.

Upon our return from Disney Molly and I went to D.C. with her parents. This was a good trip since I have not been to D.C. for some 20 + years. We saw a lot of the tourist sights but did not spend enough time at some to really learn about them. That is the trouble with vacations you just don't have enough time to see everything and learn everything that there is and we may not make it back there for another 20+ years. Oh well it was fun to be there and to learn a little history.

Now that the vacations are over its back to work for another year.

I'm the LOSER......for not updating sooner

Just in case you wanted to see someone that was more famous than me. This is of course the last American idol. The picture was taken last summer when the air temperature was in the 90's. Now its in the 20's and snowing.....which do you perfer?????

This is Molly's picture. Payson High School Drill Team where part of the dancers that performed at the 4th of July celebration in Provo.

Yes, that is Molly in a photo with Kelly. Yes she are still alive and living in American Fork, at least she was last summer.
Molly wants to know why I am putting all these pitcures on of last summer. I guess it would be because we are going to Disneyland next weeek and that is something that I put with summer. Of course Southern California has to be nicer than the snow in Utah.

Valentine's Day

I had the girls this weekend so we gave them their valentines. We were also able to get them some Valentine shirts from OLD NAVY. Don't worry, they were on sale for half off.

"Tis the season for love" at least that is what the greeting card people would have you believe. This is a sweet gig for them, they convince us that we need one day a year to tell that significant other that we love them.

This was the start of our Valentines celebration. Molly and I went to our ward's Valentines Dinner and Dance on Friday so we got all dressed up for the event and went. We had a good time but there where mostly families with kids so it was different to dance around the kids who where trying to dance. It was well done and the kids where cute but it was still a ward activity.

Whats happening.......

The girls are doing well. They visited me this last weekend and are doing good. Kaycee is getting excited to be getting out of the house. typical teenager thing. She is planning on attending SUU in the fall and has already received an academic scholarship to the tune of $1800.00. Hopefully there will be more to come.

Hollie is in junior high and doing good. She is not dancing but getting involved in basketball at church. She is a typical teenage girl in her playing of the game (need I say more). She is mostly involved with going to church dances and looks forward to the next one. Especially since she can stay out later than her older sister when she goes.
This was Hollie's Birthday party. We took her to Red Robin and almost killed her with the cake she received. But she ate the whole thing, kinda.

Amanda is between seasons for her indoor soccer. She may not look like the athletic type but of the three she is most involved in sports. She is also busy with her pets...she has five tamagotchis that is doing who know what with. I get lost trying to understand how it all works.

This is me and my wife and daughters. We are in Levan, Utah at my in-laws house.

Alright, Alright Alright.....

So no one likes pink anymore. Actually I was hoping for a more burgundy or crimson look than out right pink so now I have changed it to blue for all you critics of pink.

For all you full time bloggers, how about a little online training for me. How do I post photos and other addresses? In general how do I set up and use a blog page?
