Cole's Dinner in Vegas







Cole had dinner in Vegas with his Mom and younger brothers Sam and Adam. Cole had not seen either of them for several years, Sam looked about the same but he did not recognize Adam.
I think he looks like a guitarist for a Motley Crue cover band!

Trust and Vegas

So Cole is off to Vegas for work and 3 people said to me "How can you trust your husband in Vegas?". I thought about that for a minute, and wondered, how could I NOT trust my husband in Vegas? Why would I trust him less there? If someone is going to be naughty, they will be naughty. I know I am a tolerant wife in many aspects (the whole football season comes to mind....) and give Cole as much freedom as he wants but is it too much? No-You either trust someone or you don't. Whether they are at work or in another state.

South Dakota!



























We went to the Black Hills for a few days over the kids spring break. Everyone had a good time. There is so much to see and do there that we are planning another trip. We went to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Wind Cave, Evans Plunge and the Mammoth exhibit. It was the off season so I got a great deal on a condo ($75 per night) that was in Hill City. A great homebase for visiting all the attractions. The weather was not great but in some ways that was nice as there was NO ONE around. We saw tons of wildlife, deer, antelope, bison, goats, prairie dogs and even wild bunnies. I actually took some pictures!

Mt. Rushmore and Suitcase Issues.

So today we are off to Rapid City SD to see Mt. Rushmore. The kids are off for spring break and Cole and I are taking off a couple of days so we can have a nice mini vacation. Cole got me a new carry-on suitcase for my birthday, one that has a slip in compartment for my laptop. I had been watching it for several months to go on sale. I really love it but it is really only big enough for about 3-4 days so the 5 days we are going on this trip it is pretty full. Cole ALWAYS packs too much and I always grumble about it, but I let him bring the BIG suitcase for his things if I could put my makeup in it. So here is the surprise, G brought out his duffel and apparently he thinks we are going to Siberia for at least a month. Did he even have any clothes left in his room? I doubt it. This is one of the extra large duffels, like about 4' long. Kane could probably get in side it and zip it up all the way. Bother.

I will post our pics up as soon as we are back.

Dearly Departed

One of my clients passed away. It is really not so suprising since most of my clients are older men who smoke like chimneys and drink like fish. But this was a very young girl (24) who I spoke too every week for over two years. We never met in person but I could tell you her favorite color (purple), her favorite book (twilight...yuck), and that she was so excited about her pregnancy. She reminded me so much of myself when I was younger just getting into the auto biz, Trying to make and prove yourself in a VERY dominated male business. She and her husband were killed by an older drunk man in his brand new Corvette. I was so angry when I heard the news. It all seems so senseless and wasteful. A smart wonderful woman is gone because some person is complete wanker. I have always been vocal about my feelings about drunk driving since Becky's accident but this makes me want to stand up and take on the world.

Our Son the Rock Star!


G had his first PAYING gig yesterday! He played the opening act at a club in Provo. Could this be his ticket to stardom? I have no idea, but we are very proud of him. I keep trying to upload one his songs for the background music of the blog, but so far no luck. I will keep trying.
