Accounting Blues

Like the caption says, I have accounting blues. I just don't get it, and when I think I got it, its wrong. Maybe a cloud will open up and the gods will turn on the very dim light bulb in my accounting deficient brain. Perhaps a miracle will happen and I will wake up one morning and it will all make sense. Doubt it, but I will persevere because I am so close to graduation that I can almost touch that diploma. YES.
Thank you to my sister-in-laws for posting their comments. It was great to hear from you two. Congratulations to Brenna and Dustin on their engagement. I have a little girl here who is just dying to be a flower girl, and I know that she would be great at it. She has been picking my flowers and throwing the petals everywhere for years now, so she is very proficient, and I know she would take the job seriously. Just a thought.
James called yesterday, and I guess him and Cathy have split up, Darn, I think she made a difference in his life, at least she kept him out of some trouble.
What are every one's plans for Thanksgiving? I think we should peer pressure Grandma Julie and Grandpa Dave into coming down for at least one holiday this year. Maybe two, but I know that would be pushing it. So everyone get on the band wagon and start planting the seed of holiday cheer into the Grand Parents.
Oh look at time, I have to go be a student. Take care.

Just shin splints???

Hello to all of you out there is blog land. Not too much has been going on here in Casper, except Fall has come early to the Cowboy State. We have been using our fireplace 2-3 times per week because I refuse to turn on my heat. I heard prices for heating our houses here in Wyoming are going up 70 percent. There goes our lives savings, right to Source Gas.
Jayden only has shin splints, no fracture or anything of the sort. He has to have a little physical therapy for about 6 weeks, and that should take care of his leg troubles. He can still play football, and his team is unbeatable so far this season.
You know my family and friends who are avid readers of the Owens blog, you can post a comment or two on my blog. I look forward to hearing from all of you.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Life has been quite busy around here lately. I am knee deep in home work and it's only the second week of school. I am neck deep in frustration also because I saved all of my hard classes for last. That was not the smartest thing I've ever done, but I can never do anything the easy way. The kids are all doing great. Jayden is awesome in football, however he may have a stress fracture in his right leg. I have to take him to an orthopedic doctor tomorrow for the final verdict. His regular doctor said that he may have to quit playing football, but we will let the orthopedic doctor tell us what he thinks. It is so good for Jayden to play football, it gives him exposure to other kids and it makes him feel good about himself. He is so good at it, and I would hate to see him have to give it up.

Labor Day weekend was nice. We had a barbecue on Saturday and had some friends over. We all ate and drank way too much. We also drained the pool which turned into quite a chore. Josh had to go buy a sump pump just to get the water out. Oh well at least we will have it for years to come. On Sunday we went out to Castle Gardens. It's a beautiful and secluded place that has ancient pictures carved in the sand stone by early native Americans. We took Peyton's friend Shay, and my friend Marva with us. We saw a huge eagles nest, and lots of geological artifacts. It was super cool. However we thought that we had the whole place to ourselves, and when we sat down to have our picnic lunch we noticed that there was someone up on the hill just sitting there watching us. It was freaky because we were 28 miles out on a dirt road, and there were no cars, bikes, or anything in sight for about 20 miles. He was just watching us from the distance with his binoculars, he didn't wave or anything, he just watched. So we all got sort of freaked out, and decided to leave. You can't be too careful now a days. Besides we were ready to leave anyway. But still how freaky.
The cute little dog is our newest addition, her name is Foxy and we all love her so much. She is so much fun, and a great little travel companion. We are over run with animals, 2 cats and now 2 dogs and three kids plus all of their friends. I wouldn't have it any other way. Life is good.
