Who doesn't love a new belly button?

Yesterday another sign of old age slapped me across the face, or at least the abdominal region. I had surgery for a belly button hernia. One of my clients made fun of me and said that I should not be getting my navel pierced so late in life (which is even funnier since I am the good Mormon boy). I swear I had a great rebuttal, but for the life of me can't recall what it was now.

Life has been good, and I thank my Lord for pulling me through it. During times of stress I am even more aware that I cannot do it by myself, and I know he was there with me the whole time yesterday. I am looking forward to hear General Conference next weekend, so I might hear more of things upon which we are supposed to focus.

As for David and Caleb, they continue to impress me. David is the top student in his class and Caleb is learning so quickly. He is very well behaved in class, even so much that he had the opportunity to go to the front of a recent assembly at the school dedication. I am so proud of them, they have a bit of their old man in them. This morning they are off on a Harvest Fun Run with Jen. David and I performed magnificently last year, although I remember how cold it was. I was bummed not to be able to go today, but I am totally glad to be in my warm office right now.

I also started back up on the biggest loser contest, and was doing OK until surgery yesterday. I can start exercising in about a month the doc says. I can already tell my body wants to go out - this will be interesting to be in exercise lock down. I did find an interesting article yesterday though - related to some fun facts on some pretty bad foods. Guess I am a nerd on nutrition lately, so if you find anything of use to a fat guy like me drop a post. Check out this one for now - .

Not much else going on with the fam, just working, chillin and staying very happy. Drop some posts and let me know how things are going.

Guess Where

Sunny day where usually rain sprinkles down on the city. We were very lucky to have such beautiful summer weather, and could actually enjoy the city.

Golfing like an amateur

So I worked about 16 hours on Thursday and well into Friday morning, so I thought I would adventure to the golf course as a treat. I have only been twice before, and man did it show. OK, maybe not bad enough for chunks of grass to fly onto the speedy carts passing by, but enough to make me laugh a few times. It was a perfect fall day, and I have a sunburn tonight to prove it. Little crispy leaves speckled the course today. All and all I can see how people quickly fall in love with the game, it was great fun.

Jen is staying at Aunty's house in preparation for the annual women's walk. Me and the boys decided to stay around here for the weekend, as much fun as it sounded to go into Boise to watch :)

OK, now that it is sufficiently late I will shut this bad boy down - Happy Weekend to everyone. More posts and photos to come.
