I am SO grateful that I have Brett in my life. He has been a real trooper while I have been sick. From helping around the house, helping with the dogs and always hearing I am NOT hungry, I think I owe him a big THANKS. My life wouldn't be the same without him in it. He is the one who makes me laugh and understands what I am talking about. He accepts me for who I am and doesn't expect me to change. I can say what I think and not have to sugar coat it. Heavenly Father knew exactally what he was doing when he put us together.
Happy Valentines Day babe. I love you!

I know it's been a long time since I last posted. We are alive and some of us are doing well. Brett is happy and healthy, it's eagle season at Farmington bay and he is loving going up there and taking photos you can check them out here. He has done some amazing stuff this year, but I am his wife and I love all of his work. Sadie and Kaiser and happy and healthy they love our new home and can't get enough of running up and down the stairs. I know it sounds like we have 2 nutso dogs and maybe we do but we love them. Kiaser also loves to look at me right in the eye and just bark, while Sadie just lays in the chair giving him this look like "dude you are one crazy guy." As for me, well I was happy and healthy until Monday when I felt like I was getting sick, I was getting really bad headaches and my body would just hurt, I thought that it was the flu and that it would go away. WRONG!! By Wednesday I had no voice and my ears started hurting. Thursday it got worse, so I finally broke down and went to the doctor. I have a sinus infection and a double ear infection(there is some super long word for it) that only children get where your ears drain/bleed. I guess I still haven't grown up. The doctor was a little bit surprised to look in my ear and see what he saw. Lets just say that it's so bad that the right side of my face is numb and it KILLS when my ear is draining. On top of it all I have NO voice at all, not even a whisper, the doctor told me I need to stop talking for like 3 days. If you know me really well you know that this is going to kill me. I am the first to admit I LOVE to talk. I feel so bad for Brett. I know that I am not sleeping well, like today on my day off I was up at 5:15 AM that is insane. I know that I am keeping him awake at night and he is such a good sport and has been taking care of me. So goes the life in the Colvin household I know it could be much worse that what it is. I am very grateful for what I have in my life.
