the last 3 days

My new license plates came today and I quickly mounted them on my car.

I got this cast on yesterday. only cost me $160! 6 weeks...6 weeks! I have midcarpal instability. the doc doesn't even know if this will help...just hoping. it is also the reason i am writing with little capitalization...

this is my graham cracker house, I made it at FHE on Monday. It won the best construction award. Yay for me!

My Trip to Arizona (abbreviated)

I spent a wonderful 9 days visiting friends and family. I saw Twilight with my sisters Krista, Brooke, and Kara. Brittany, being large with child(ren), couldn’t make the trip. We love you Britt and pray for you baby! We went to sushi afterwords and discussed what we liked and didn’t like. That’s not a blog I am going to write.

I babysat Krista’s little boys. Let me tell you, they are more than a handful; cute, loving and energy-sucking. You may know him as DR, Dan, pops, papa, grandpa, or just plain old Dad to me, came into town and celebrated Thanksgiving with us too.

I went to my doctor for a check up on my ankle. He said that one day I will need an ankle replacement, a day I dread. He gave me a steroid to help with the chronic pain. In that shot were some localized pain killers, Lidocane and some other 'cane'. It numbed my foot and for 2 hours I was pain free and it almost made me cry I was so happy. I wish it lasted.

I saw old friends and it made me want to live there again. I found myself driving the streets and thinking to myself, ‘I could live here again.’ Gavin got engaged too!

My phone charger broke the last day of vacation in Arizona. So instead of buying a new charger I decided to buy a new phone. I went with the new T-Mobile G1. It runs off a new Google operating system called Android. It is similar to the iPhone in that you can download applications to your phone and use them.

I got a couple of games, one of which is called, Zombies, Run! You plug in your destination address and as you drive you have to avoid the Zombies that are chasing you. It’s basically a real life Pac-Man trying to avoid the ghosts. I haven’t tried it yet but it sounds like fun. I also got one called scriptures which, when it gets working right, will allow me to access the Bible, Book of Mormon and the rest of them.

I really enjoyed the time off. I golfed, slept, watched Madagascar 2 (which made me cry I laughed so hard,) ate plenty, and spent quality time with friends and family. I can't complain.

Here are some fun websites:
Whiskey Militia
Busted Tees
Japanese Bug Fights
