Run Like The Wind

While I was at the Salt Lake Running Company buying these I ran into Elder Holland, and ended up talking about Puma's with him. It was a good time. And to top it all off, I got these baller shoes that look absolutely freaking fantastic! Gonna go break them in this morning!

Update on the JEEP!

So after selling the Bimmer and buying the Jeep, I got busy selling left over parts from my previous cars, and random items that we had been meaning to sell but I hadn't gotten around to it yet. Why you ask? Well because the proceeds were to be used to lift the Jeep and get it ready for wheeling this upcoming spring. So I now have a 4"Teraflex Lift and I am running 37" Nitto Trail Grapplers. It looks MEAN! I'm seriously looking forward to hitting the trails this spring. Let me know what you think.

New Ride!

So as many of you know, I loved my Bimmer.....but. It had some issues and the warranty was about to be up. I didn't want to be sitting there with the bill when something happened to that thing. So after almost a 1.5 year relationship, we have separated. I was able to make money on it and put that as a down payment for my next ride. My monthly payments went up about $20 but I have a brand new vehicle, and my insurance went down $5 a month!
I have bought a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. It's White, with a hardtop, cloth seats, and lots of goodies my previous Jeep's never had. I've taken it off road twice now and it only has 450 miles on it. Needless to say, the kids all love it especially with the top and doors off. I will post pics soon.

Emergency Preparedness

Thought I would share. After the devastation that recently happened in Japan, I decided it was time to have a discussion on preparedness. For our family home evening tonight we had a talk with the kids about earthquakes. Then we went from room to room and had the kids act as though there was an earthquake and show us where they would go and what they would do. They seemed to catch on pretty quick, and now we have gone over every room in the house and what they should do. Next week we will go over it again, and talk about food storage and probably get involved in straightening the food storage up. I feel that it is important for the kids to understand that an earthquake is something we have been preparing for since I was a kid. I want them to know the seriousness of earthquakes and all I had to do was show them some pictures from the recent devastation in Japan. This is something that has been in the forefront of my mind for a long while, but now I have decided to act on it and get our family a little bit more prepared.
Here is something that I ordered today for our home. Water storage is something that I was having struggles with and I figure this should be good for our family for about 2 months of water. Lots of good stuff to be found online, it's our job to teach our family how to use that information to protect our lives.

Joy's Of Aging!

I thought I would put something up that pretty much all of us can relate too....getting older! As most of you know I love basketball. Well, we took 1st in our Stake and made it to regions. The final game in stake play a guy lowered his shoulder and ran full speed into the center of my chest. I didn't notice anything until about an hour later when it felt like somebody was stabbing me in my chest. It is almost better, but it still hurts. So this last Saturday was our region game, and the injury wasn't gone but I had to play. I popped a couple of Ibuprophens, and went and played. Man I felt great, and played at 110% to come up short and our region play was over. Well yesterday once I had no pain pills in my system, it was a day of realization that I had over done it. Now my legs, chest, back and calfs are aching.
I guess what I am trying to get at, is that I kind of miss the olden days when I was in shape! When I could play basketball for hours and not be achy, but the harsh reality is it will only get worse as I age. Hmmm, time to get myself back in shape and try to fend off aging as quickly as I can.
Those are my thoughts today, enjoy another day of getting older everyone!!
