A new Grandson!

My 6th Grandbaby will be born today. Nancy and Victor went to the hospital at 1am this morning. I wish I wasn't so far away in Oklahoma. It seems like it is taking forever for Tommy to arrive.

Tommy was finally born at 3:38pm!!!!! He weighed 8 pounds 3 ounces.

Training in Oklahoma

Well my training in Oklahoma started this morning in Oklahoma. I'm not sure where to post my pictures, on here or on facebook. But, it is starting to get late and I still need to study.

I posted the pictures on facebook.
December 6, 2009 Sunday
I’ve decided that I HATE flying anywhere. I had a nightmare trip back in January of this year, and today isn’t much better.
3:00am I awoke on the couch and began to get things done. I have felt so terrible the last 3 days with really bad stomach cramps. I organized Christmas gifts for wrapping. I worked on our budget. I washed clothes and took the Thanksgiving decorations downstairs.
I went to church and finished packing for my trip.
12:20pm I arrived at the airport, only to find that my airplane had not even left Denver. AAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! My flight ended up leaving over 2 hours late. And to make matters a ton worse, my cell phone died while we were parked on the runway waiting. And then when I arrived in Denver discovered my phone charger was in my checked luggage. Anyway I missed my connecting flight to Oklahoma City. Now I’m stuck in the Denver airport for over 2 hours.
11:15pm I walked into my hotel room.

December 7, 2009 Monday NCED BMEU Training
7:00am I have training every day for Bulk Mail Acceptance. Then we have homework to do at night. They have a nice fitness facility and I’ve been going there each evening. I got a fitness evaluation, I went to a nutrition class, a marriage relationship class. They are trying to help us improve ourselves in all areas of our lives. At the end of all the optional stuff they ask us to make goals.

December 11, 2009 Friday NCED Training
7:00 Training all day as usual.
4:00-6:00pm I went with Greg and his wife Tammy to see the local Casino run by the Chickasaw Indians. I went in one door and out the other, it was way too smoky. I walked around outside for a few minutes. Then we just drove around town, and then went to Wal Mart and I bought a few snacks and a book to read.

My Dad

I worried all week about my dad. He went to the hospital again for 2 days. So on Friday as soon as I got off work I drove to Salt Lake to see dad. On Saturday I spent 3 hours cleaning and reorganizing his bedroom. Dad isn't allowed to go downstairs anymore. Which is where he has spent all of his time, reading and watching TV for many years. Dad is not happy about not being able to go downstairs anymore.
Here is Colter and Chloe decorating Grandma's Christmas trees.

On Saturday I left at 1:30pm to drive home and spent the evening taking care of the twins. They are such a joy to be with.
