I'm Still Here!

 Really, I am!  See... 

Clint hasn't thrown me off a mountain...yet! 

We've done so many incredible things I've wanted to share with everyone, but I promise, I will get to it all in due time.

 For example, we've had a few magnificent days of skiing in the most beautiful places I've ever been.  I took this picture on the continental divide at Monarch.

I've been MIA for good reason, and not just because we've been busy skiing (and recovering from skiing).  I'm just about through a pretty tough semester and surprisingly enough, have straight A's for the time being.  I just hope I can end the semester with that track record.  Pathophysiology, Microbiology, Anatomy & Physiology II, and a psychology class I had to retake because they wouldn't take my A in it from 15 years ago.  Plus, I've been working full time.  I wasn't sure I could do it, but so far I've been able to pull it off.

One thing I do know for certain is that I couldn't have done it without my wonderful support system.  Clint has been amazing.  He's been working a lot and having to study for a certification test for work, plus he takes care of all our finances and does more than his share around the house with cooking and cleaning, especially when I have tests and papers due.

Did I mention my husband is amazing?

Okay, I just wanted to make sure I made that perfectly clear.  On top of all those things he managed to find us the perfect little commuter car for when I start school.

We needed something inexpensive, dependable, in good shape, and with great gas mileage.  Check, check, check, and check!

Then, as if I wasn't already spoiled, he built me this suburbanite-style chicken coop!

Many more pictures soon to come, but here's a little preview.  I miss all my animals so much that this really meant the world to me.  As soon as the snow storm passes this week I will be planting strawberries in the planter.  I've always wanted a raised strawberry bed, too!  Two wishes in one!!

I definitely plan on elaborating much more on all our recent events, plus writing much more in the future.  My semester ends the beginning of May, so if anyone is still reading, please check back in again soon.

We never know what the future holds, but I do believe it will hold for the both of us many great things.  This blog is far from over.

 Until our paths cross again,
