the bathroom this week at John’s house. After work on Monday, we had a nice family home evening with Charlotte’s family. Mom did the lesson on her parents again.

Tuesday we got up early and went to the temple. In the afternoon, I went to see a hematologist and it is official, I don’t have to take blood thinners anymore--just an aspirin a day, will keep the doctor away. Medical thinking about patients who have had a blood clot has changed over the last 10 years. They now think that the risk of a bad bleed, out ways the risk of another blood clot.

|Notice the light fixture. If you look close, you will see I had to move it again and patch the wall.|
Wednesday early we went to the gym and rode a stationary bike for 30 minutes and then walked around the lazy river in the pool. We know we need more exercise, but we only find time to go a couple of times a week. Wednesday afternoon mom went to James’ home to tend his kids of a couple of days. I stayed home and participated in the second webinar for our temple training.

Thursday I went to lunch with my brother, Van. He takes me to a different place in Salt Lake once a week. He knows all the little haunts with great food. I then went down to Lehi to be with mom and James’ kids for the night.

Friday Kirstin got home about 10:00am and we both headed home. We had a few hours to ourselves and then we went to John’s home to tend for the night. I started the Norman taxi service by picking up Badger from football at 5:00pm. Our

Saturday was filled with getting their kids to their different activities. Badger and Moose had to be at First Lego League at 8:00am and Ellie at sewing at 9:30am. When the boys got home, Moose had to mow the lawn and Badger had to get ready for his football game. I dropped him off at 11:00am and then loaded up all my tools to take to Charlotte’s house so I can start her bathroom remodel. I then went to Badger’s game with the half-time treats, cut up oranges. The game got done at 2:00pm and I took Badger to lunch and then he had to load up the lawn mower and Chris took Badger to Jill’s mom’s home to cut her lawn and I took Moose to his soccer game in Farmington. Jill dropped John off at her mom’s and picked up Chris and then she came to Farmington and took over for me. I got home about 5:30pm and we both took showers and got ready to go to Stake Conference.

We didn’t do much work, but we were both really tired by the end of the day. Sunday we went to Stake Conference and had a nice family home evening at John and Jill’s. Now we can start all over and get one more bathroom remodeled and try to finish getting ready to leave. Guatemala might seem like a vacation.
