Stray Dogs… I mean Cows

You know how you usually see stray dogs in the streets? Well…. I’m driving Ande to seminary this morning and in the middle of the street there are three stray COWS in a line walking towards a neighborhood! COWS? What the heck is that about? Ande & I had to do a double take and sure enough, we saw three cows. No one was there walking them or directing them to go somewhere. They were just stray cows walking by themselves like they owned the road! ha ha… Then… the conversation went like this….

Ande: I would be afraid if I were walking to school and I saw a cow walking down the road.

Me: Yeah, why is that?

Ande: Yeah because it would eat me!

Me: ha ha ha (I busted out laughing)

Ande: What? (in a serious tone) Cows don’t eat people?

Me: Nope! We eat them!

Ande: Well, do they at least bite people?

Me: ha ha ha (busted out laughing again)

Food Fight

So I was at my mom’s house for dinner. My dad decided to throw a piece of tortilla at Jessica. She thought it was the funniest thing in the world and cracked up laughing. S he instantly realized that it would be funnier if she threw food back at him. When she would through bologna at him it would fall in his drink, on his plate, in the salsa or stick on the wall.

The funniest thing to her was when she threw a piece of bologna at him and he tried to catch it but instead it landed in his mouth.

The food fight ended when he threw food at her and it landed in her hair. If you know Jessie, she doesn’t like people touching her hair and food in her hair was the worst thing that could have happened to her.

My dad of course had to make her happy again so he let her throw food at him which of course cracked her up and made her happy. I had to have a talk with Jessica so that she knew throwing food was not acceptable behavior… unless you’re with tata (grandpa) ha ha!  Because there are obviously no rules when you’re with tata.

Update – for Amy!!!

So I got in trouble by my second mother for not posting an update on my ankle. Sorry Amy fo r not keeping you posted on my life happenings.





I was wearing an air cast and on crutches. It was super difficult to be on crutches while I was teaching. So one of my students had a grand idea for me to sit on a rolling chair and they’d push me around. It was great until my students started fighting for who’s turn it was to push me around the classroom or down the hall. Anyhow, they all got a turn and in the end they were all happy little campers!



Once the swelling started going down, I started wearing a walking boot. Which of course was so great for me because being on crutches was such a pain! My arm pits were sore and my back started hurting from it. It could be because I never learned how to wa lk in them



My friend Dr. Mitch Healey has also helped me out by adjusting my back which of course is all out of whack from falling. He has also treated me with Kinesio Taping . That stuff is amazing! In the past I have had it on my back and it’s just unbelievable what change it makes! Dr. Mitch is not only a super duper chiropractor which I highly recommend, he is also good looking! So next time you need an adjustment go visit him and he’ll fix you every time! You get adjusted and then an amazing trigger point massage. Did I mention he was a Hotty McNaughty?

All in all… I am doing great! My ankle is still swollen but getting much better. Hopefully I am walking well without the boot sooner than later. Thanks for everyone that has worried about me and that have asked about me and helped me out!
Oh one last thing… I always have students that like to stay in the classroom instead of going to recess. I was writing this blog during my lunch break and one of my students said, “Mrs. Cole, did you fall on purpose so that you could write something in your blog!” HA HA!!! So of course I had to choke him! ha ha  JUST KIDDING!!!! I would never hurt my students! They are wonderful goofballs.

I’ve Fallen & I can’t get up

Saturday, October 11th (my not so yay day) : Today was the big yard sale day. What fun… NOT really. My day started with me getting up too early for my own good. I woke up at 4:45 am to set things up for my yard sale. I figured that I would set things up then go shower. Well… little did I know that I would get my first “customer” at 5:30 am.  Ande, Jill and my mom started helping out closer to 6 am. By that time, the sun was starting to come out and more people were showing up and I couldn’t go shower so I figured “Oh well, I will do it after the yard sale”. So once the yard sale was over which was about 1:00 pm we posted a notice on Craigslist for anyone to get free left overs from the yard sale. About 90% of what was left from the yard sale  was taken. Yippee for less clean up for me. Keep Reading

AZ State Fair

My family went to the fair, mainly because it was only $1.00 to get it since it was the first day of the fair.  If you know me… I am super frugal and will take advantage of any deals worthwhile. We walked around and looked at exhibits. We had 6 free ride passes so my niece Amanda and Jessica got on two rides and me & Greg got on one ride. Jessica got on her first roller coaster. Her face was priceless. I wish I could have gotten a picture of it. I wanted to stop the ride and save her, but at the same time I was cracking up laughing at her facial expressions. She gets off the ride and says, “It was scary fun” ha ha. Keep Reading
