So i have not been sleeping very well this last little while and wake up with a headache.
When i went for my usual 3 mo check my doctor suggested i get my thyroid checked and do an overnight oxygen test to see if that wasn't the problem. My blood pressure is also very high again and although i have been thinking it was just the white coat syndrome and the unknown stress of seeing the Dr so often, i had checked it periodically and it has stayed high. So i am now on a bp med. Why not add more right? Soon i will be on more drugs than an elderly person. The thyroid came back normal though so that is good, just frustrating that i am so tired all the time even though i go to the gym almost everyday.
Really it could be worse, just complaining which i try not to do.
We have had a good couple of weeks at our house. Owen is loving the pool! We even went to seven peaks with my family yesterday. It was so hot but Owen loved it.
Jeremy will start training in SLC in about a week along with his new schedule 2pm-10:30pm. It will be an adjustment for all of us.
My birthday is on Monday and i am going for a massage! I am so excited to just lay there and relax. We are having a family party on Sunday and i am making a new version on apple pie. The recipe i have substitutes apples for zucchini. I got the recipe from a girl in my ward and she fooled her husband with it so i cant wait to try it on my family! If it turns out i will email you all the recipe.

Here is a fun little game I saw on a friends blog.Here are the directions:
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.
If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.
Our 4th was a good one Jeremy got up early and took Owen to see the balloons in the morning. I stayed in bed and relaxed it was awesome! When Jer went to work i went to my moms and hung out all day. She has a little blow up pool and when Owen woke up from his nap we played in it a little. Water wasnt quite warm enought and he was kinda chicken to get all the way in. My dad bbq'd for us and i had my hamberger on a lettuce bun instead of a real one....my docs would be so proud!
My sweet grandma called and said she wasnt feeling good and she wouldnt make it to eat with us, said she had high BP and had horrible double vision.
So we took some food down to her which was really code for lets go check on grandma. When we got there she was worse. My mom and dad ended up taking her to the instacare and then the ER. Where she was admitted for 2 days while they tried to get her sodim level back to where it should be. Because of the double vision the docs ended up doing an MRI of her brain and found a small tumor in the front part of her brain on the outer edge. They said it wasnt effecting her vision and it could have been there all her life, just to check on it in another month or so to make sure it wasnt growing. Im not sure what is in my families genes that make us all have freaky things wrong with our bodies but im getting pretty fed up with it!
On the brighter side though Owen loved the fireworks and kept saying"how beautifull!" Pretty funny when all the other kids are just saying "wow".
