I've been trying to get the hubby to get a new truck for a couple years and it has finally happened! LOL We weren't really planning on getting one until late winter or early spring, but other circumstances have dictated that we move forward and with the 2011 end of model sells the timing was good. He'd been looking around researching and finally settled on Nissan (no surprise, his other is Nissan lol), so started looking at what dealers had what he wanted available...

Well like I said model end closeouts were going on so, luckily he found 1 lol... There was 1, yes I repeat ONE - 2011 Frontier Crew Cab SL left in the state... It was at the dealer right the street from us! The only thing is that it has the long bed instead of the short bed, so it just barely fits in the garage and he wanted red, but black is beautiful! lol
It's good to have a black beast in the garage again! :D

It's September Already!

It's amazing the amount of activity that can be packed into a month! Crazy busy, but hey it's going to start cooling down finally!

We had to get the ac fixed, the garage door opener fixed, Ryan's car a couple of times, moved both boys, took a road trip, yard work, clean, clean, and more clean. hahaha

We got Ryan all moved in to his new place. Travis and Stephanie got moved into their apartment also and are enjoying their new found freedoms! They got Izzy D a new little brother, his name is Bowser. At 3.5 months old, he is a little brindle daredevil of a pit-mix that enjoys chasing and pouncing on full pit Izzy! Izzy is very very happy with his new little bro!   

I really thought that it would be a lot quieter around here once everyone had moved out ... boy do I stand corrected! It is quieter on average, but still a lot of in and out with activity with visitors, but that I won't complain about, I like them to visit. ;) I never thought that I'd go back to washing dishes by hand, but on nights when it's just the 2 of us it seems silly to use up energy running the dishwasher for so few dishes! It's a tough life, but someone has to have it! Whew! hehehe
For good luck
 put your hand in my mouth,
If you are TRUTHFUL
pull it out, BUT!
If you must WONDER
I may BITE until
Rich and I had a GREAT 25th anniversary. We took a day trip to Flagstaff. We did a little sight seeing around 'Old Flagstaff', a nature walk through the Arboretum, and then relaxed a bit at Oak Creek! We both just love going to Oak Creek.

This was at the Arboretum in Flagstaff. Don't worry he got his hand out. lol

Busy Times

Well, once again several months have passed and I've not posted events. See how I am? lmao

It's crazy how things can change so quickly.  The family reunion has been put off until next year, so that didn't happen. It's all good though. Rich and I have our 25 anniversary this month!

Natosha and Eugene have rented a place of their own now. They kept one of the pups from the litter they had, Spot. He's a cutie! He's also quite huge now. They are doing well, working towards being able to purchase a house. Good luck to them on that, I know they can do it. It just takes time and planning.

Ryan was sooo happy to get the interlock out! Whew, that's finally over! He also got a new apartment, no more roommate! It took some looking to find one that would work for him, but things are going well.

Travis is moving out in a couple weeks as well (11 days to be exact). His current girlfriend, Stephanie and her pitbull Izzy, are living with us; they are getting an apartment together. We know they can do it even though they are a little nervous about it.

Rich and I are crusing along, looking forward to some quite time. ...and hopefully grandkids in the not tooo distant future. ;)  I'll have to see about getting the camera out and putting up some updated pics. Yeah right, like that'll happen! lmao

I suck at blogging

Well it looks as though I've gone and proven that I suck at keeping up on the blog. lol

The past several months have held a lot of ups and downs as usual. Love the ups, work through the downs. ;) 

We got through the wedding quite well. It was quite a time! It's a good thing you all got a copy of the video because I am very late posting about it since it was in April of 2010. (see I suck at blogging lmao) 

Well lets see, Travis got his first tattoo several months ago. Tosh and I both went with him and had a good laugh picking on him while it was being done. He said he prob won't do that again! lmao
Ryan moved out a few months ago, he has an apartment now with one of his friends and is doing well. His probation is over and he gets the interlock device removed in a few months, he is looking forward to that.

Tosha and Gene had a litter of pups a few weeks ago. They are sooooo cute! On the sad side, the father of the pups suddenly died. He had a heart murmur and we believe that was the cause. He is very missed! Love ya Tank!  
Rich and I are doing well. We both still like to play video games. No surprise there. lol We got the new pro guitar for Rock Band 3, it is challenging but a lot of fun. We have the family reunion coming up quickly this year, that should be a lot of fun.

Well I guess that's about it for now. It's 2011 now soooo....
