Some people know how sick I've been since I got sober last winter. It's pretty crazy actually. Almost like clockwork, I get really sick every 3-4 weeks where I throw everything up, have a really bad headache, and become incredibly incapacitated. I have been going to work throughout the entire time I have been sick, but it's finally to the point now that I feel like I need to take some time before school starts and be more proactive about my health. I am so sick of being sick all the time and ready to find some answers. Every Dr. has their Theory, but the biggest one is just that my body is trying to get back to normal after the chemical overload for about a year. Hopefully, I can get this under control and get back to work and start feeling good once school starts in about a month. I know a lot of it had to do with the fact that my job really stressed me out, because I felt like I was constantly delivering bad news and it is just getting more and more impossible to close mortgage loans with all of the regulations that have hit over the last 2 years I have been in the industry. This is a good time to seek out another direction in my career since I will be hopefully getting my Masters of Social Work in a couple of years.
I am honored to have the best waffle house in the state literally 2 minutes from my front door.
The entire family got together for the 24th this year. It has been a year since we all were in the state together. Gotta love it!
I am getting more and more comfortable being a part of the amazing recovery community in Utah. That fine young man on the bottom right is Ian, the Founder of Fit2Recover. An awesome fitness resource and community for those in recovery. He's starting a sober gym and it's gonna be rad.
Mona rope swing, it has been far too long!
Just a normal day for these two guys!
My little Asian babies are quickly learning who the favorite aunt around here is!

It has been quite awhile since I went to Byron's grave. This particular experience was the first time I felt the real peace of acceptance since he's died. It took nine years of the ups and downs of the grief cycle to finally feel that peace.
As usual, I am starting to train for a half that is in 2 weeks...awesome!
Little Miss Charly is the youngest of the grandchildren and most certainly the most stubborn. She won't admit we are "buddies", but clearly, we are ;-)

Back when I worked at a gym as a trainer, I used to be able to bust out squats on the workout balls. It's tough. I was happy with just doing one today! Woof!
