I've been so busy I haven't had time to post. Well here's the D/L. First I am going to school full time I couldn't go back to the academy. My ribs still hurt and when the doctor did the MRI they discovered two masses on my kidney and lungs. Having medi-cal the protocol for all the test I need has been long and drawn out. I go in on the 22nd to talk to a surgeon about when he will perform a biopsy. I've been so stressed!!!!!!

On a happy note.... I have been happier then I ever have been. I never thought I would find love. When I stopped looking Lloyd found me. He is so good for me and the boys. The boys are so so so happy. We have gone on a few camping/ air soft war trips. The boys haven't ever had a father to do fun things like that with. Lloyd is like a big kid himself they all get camo'd out and have war off and on all day & into the night. Lloyd has a 15 year old daughter who lives with her mom in Oklahoma.He misses her alot. Having the boys around I think helps him. I think Heavenly Father new we all needed each other and new it was time for us all to be happy.

Look How Happy!!!!!!

July News

OK It has been about a month since I broke my ribs and I still am in pain and have been very depressed being jobless. Anyways that's the bad news.

The good news is, I found a job today!!!! I went in for an interview at Vons and was hired on the spot. I will be bookkeeper and work the customer service desk. BOMB I know!!!

The best news of all is that I'm in LOVE!!! Crazy, I know! I thought that would never happen. Its weird I wasn't looking for anyone and neither was he. We just kinda found each other by chance. We have so much in common and laugh a lot. I haven't gone a day with out seeing him since I met him. We spend all of our extra time together. He loves to bar-b-que, play cards and play ball with the boys. They fell in love with him just as fast as I did. He is an awesome father figure to them and God knows they deserve that. I could go on and on about him but I am leaving to go see him right now. Later!!!

Minor Setback

OK, here is the skinny on my academy. First day of academy was long enough to qualify for hell week!!! I don't think anyone that hadn't gone through it before could actually prepare for what took place. It was very hard and tiring 10 hours straight Physical Torture!!!! I had a huge set back after the first time through the obstacle course. I felt like I was in a Ninja Warriors episode. About 4 hours into the training I had to jump over a 5 ft log that rolled slightly when you put any weight on it. I fell on my right side and hurt my ribs. I thought I just bruised them or pulled a muscle. I continued for about an hour after that until it came to the obstacle course again. I tried to do the monkey bars and half way through I dropped from ungodly pain. I never felt pain like that in my life. Except of course giving birth to three 10lbs. babies. They pulled me out and had one of the P.T. medics check me out. They wanted me to go by ambulance to the hospital but I wanted to continue. I didn't want to quit and I thought they were going to kick me out. I went to the emergency room on my own had an ex-ray and a C.T. done. The told me I had 2 bruised ribs, a bruised kidney, and a kidney stone. I was never in pain before the fall. I wonder if bruising my kidney broke something loose. I don't know how that works but it would make sense, right? Anyways, I stuck it out for the rest of the week but on restriction of no Physical Training until Monday. I thought something was very wrong with the diagnoses because after I passed my stone the pain never decreased. It has been getting worse every day. The Sargent noticed how much pain I was in on Thursday, even with pain killers. He sent me back to the Doctor. He thought something more had to be wrong too. Sure enough the Doctor had missed a hairline fracture on the underside of my ribs. The doctor told me that he couldn't release me for P.T. until I have healed. So, I went today to talk to my Sargent about it. I was so bummed and cried a lot. He was absolutely cool about it and put me first on the list for the next academy that starts in October. That makes me feel a lot better and not like a looser. He knows I really want this career and I have the guts to do it. At least now I will know more then the other students and will be prepared for the "hell week." I know what to expect now. So that's the skinny, Good and Bad.

Training video for the Academy

I went to the orientation today for the Academy. I start on Monday!!! I found this video on you tube that shows the class that graduated in 2007. Check out the training video. Please pray for me that I will be able to endure till the end and graduate.

Guess What

I made it! I will be starting the training academy for corrections on June 23rd. I received my badges for my uniforms so I guess that is official. I am so excited and scared. I hope I will be able to get through all the RUNNING and keep up with every one else.

Yeah ME!!!!!

The Major League

I am so proud of my kids!!! Rohan & Hunter started Practice for Baseball a few weeks ago for the Texas Rangers!! I was watching practice and a few of the dads there were talking about all the players on the team. I sat there quietly and just listened to their conversation. They were saying that the two boys in the black hats were the best on the team. Nobody knew that they were my two boys in the black hats. A little bit later Hunter was called up to bat and he was just walking, so being the good sports mom I yelled at him to hustle. The men turned around and asked me if he was my son and I told them yes both of the boys in the black hats are my sons. That's my little Bragging story. Rohan is going to be pitcher this year, and Hunter is catcher. Maybe you'll see them playing in the World Series some day!!!!

Women that are my Heroes

One Flaw In Women

By the time the Lord made woman, He was into his sixth day of working overtime. An angel appeared and said, "Why are you spending so much time on this one?"

And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable and able to run on diet coke and leftovers, have a lap that can hold four children at one time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart -and she will do everything with only two hands."

The angel was astounded at the requirements. "Only two hands!? No way! And that's just on the standard model? That's too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish."

"But I won't," the Lord protested. "I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself when she is sick AND can work 18 hour days."

The angel moved closer and touched the woman. "But you have made her so soft, Lord."

"She is soft," the Lord agreed, "but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."

"Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.

The Lord replied, "Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason and negotiate."

The angel then noticed something, and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek. "Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one."

"That's not a leak," the Lord corrected, "that's a tear!"

"What's the tear for?" the angel asked. The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love, her loneliness, her grief and her pride."

The angel was impressed. "You are a genius, Lord. You thought of everything! Woman is truly amazing."

And she is! Women have strengths that amaze men. They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy. They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in. They stand up to injustice. They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution. They go without so their family can have. They go to the doctor with a frightened friend. They love unconditionally. They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning. They bring joy, hope and love. They have compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give.



I received this Email from my ex-sister in-law.

Cousin James American Solider

I just received this picture of my oldest cousin (the tall one) James Vizzard. He is a Lieutenant Colonel serving in Baghdad Iraq. This is his third time to serve in Iraq. I am so proud of him and all the troops that are serving our country. I pray that he comes home safe and soon.

GI Jane

My Mom and Grandma have always taught me to make lists. Make a list of all the good things in your life, and all the hard things. When you can look back and see that you made it through tough times, you'll see you are blessed. I have always found this advice helpful. I have been through a lot of tough times too many to mention but I will brag about some of my accomplishments/blessings I have had within the last 4 years.

  • Taking back my life
  • My divorce
  • My kids
  • Unconditional love from family and friends
  • My health
  • Getting my GED
  • Taking some College classes
  • Becoming a Notary
  • Rohans surgery being a success
  • My family is Happy again

Having to start from ground zero after the Randy Era. Looking for a job that pays enough to support 3 kids and live in a good neighborhood is hard to find. Ive had a few jobs this last year that gave me high hopes, but they were all temporary. Ive been on the search for a LONG time. I came to the conclusion that a mans job is the only way to go. My nephew Camden used to call me Uncle Shelby so maybe this will fit me too. I applied for Corrections and was called last week to come in on April 12th to go for an interview/ orientation. I'm so excited!!!!! I know I shouldn't get my hopes up yet since it is only the first step towards my goal. I want this sooooo bad. I started run/walking everyday, a little less then 3 miles. I was thinking that 5am was a good time to start so I wouldn't be embarrassed. Boy was I wrong there's a whole secret world of runners that come out when its still dark. Crazy!!!! I hope I can get in shape before the academy starts in May. Wish me luck!!!!

Price is Right

Dont forget to watch us on CBS March 7 2008. I know I will look like a dork but watch anyways!!!

Love-n Las Vegas

Rohan Skates

Hunter 9

Hunter was so excited he finally got the shoes he wanted (Dustin Dollin Vans) He is so cute he had to take pictures of them. They do make him run faster and jump higher!!!!! He loves to skate and has to have name brand skater clothes. I thought having all boys I wouldn't have picky dressers, but I was wrong!

We are going to Vegas in a few days. He is so excited to see Mason they are funny together, they constantly giggle. They are so much alike. I'm glad they are close even though they live far apart.

Rohan the monkey

The Boys I Love

Rohans Surgery

Rohan is now 10 he had a rough 2007 but he made it out OK. He lost his summer to pain from his surgery. He had a surgery called Pectus Excavatum at the Children's Valley Hospital in Medera. His doctor said it is the most painful surgery for a kid to have. He had a few complications and we staid in the hospital there for a little over a week. After seeing him in so much pain I wondered if I made the right choice to have it done. I know now I made the right choice. He is back to the hyper child he was before, but with more air to breath and less strain on his heart. I thank Heavenly Father for watching over us and for giving Rohan the strength to endure such pain and the Knowledge of the Doctors and modern medicines that help Rohan have a normal life now. He is doing good and loves to skate board. He has to be careful tough, the metal bar they put in his chest won't come out for another year. I hope that surgery wont be as painful as the last one. I guess we will see.

Tyler age 14

My oldest son Tyler is now 14 almost 15. He is a freshman at Frontier High School. I feel so old!!!!! I've turned into the kool-aid mom, taxi, and Dr. Phil all this year. Tyler told me the other day "Mom, how come your always right?" I thought WOW when did that happen? When did I turn into my Mom??? I find myself telling my parents I'm sorry all the time for things I put them through. I hope my apologies help me get out of that "I hope one day you have a kid just like you" curse. So far so good!
