New Urban Karma blog

I started my new Urban Karma site. I guess I stopped using my old one and didn't renew it or something like that so here is the new one. Of course I'm still working on it.

Dog, Dogs and more Dogs!!

Micah parents house has so many dogs. They are not all theirs but...well let me just show you...

are we at a dog park...no we are not, but it looks like one. Micah's parents, Robin and Steve, the have 3 dogs, one is new to the family and needs to be socialized, hence then dog play date. Then Evan and Sara live next door and they have 2 dogs, and we where there with our dog Tiki, though she doesn't play she was still there and then Connor and Chelsea have one dog. And Steve had friends come by with their new Rottie so that she could be socialized too, so how many is that....what, 8 dogs...that's alot of dogs! So every human around decided to join in the socialization too!

Xela and Veraty playing in the playhouse.

Hey Evan, nice pants!

Ahh Christmas has passed.

This Christmas was wonderful. My family had such a great time I wish it could be like this all year round. I love to go from family to family just hanging out talking story and playing games. My mom is so great, she has started having her family's Christmas the weekend before Christmas so that we can all get together and not have to stress about leaving and going to the next families house. It's great because we can now enjoy each family and the time we spend with them
For Christmas eve and day we stayed at Micah's parents house and that was wonderful because we didn't have to rush out to someone elses house. We stayed there the whole weekend and got to spend time with Micah's brother Lane who just got home on the 21st from his mission. Let me tell you he was surprised to see how is family grew while he was got for 2 years. He left when Karma was little and Veraty was a Baby. Then he comes back and Karma is a big Kid and Veraty is running and talking and he never met Xela, who is now 17 months. And Sara, his other brothers wife is prego with her second kid. Crazy what can happen in two years.

Be Prepared!

So I am the worst person in the world about blogging... I know, I know I need to get back on the band wagon. My camera broke so that is my excuse for not posting. Any who I found this web site and thought it was great. I'm always worried about not having enough food storage and being prepared for disaster so here is a great link, check it out! http://preparednesspantry.blogspot.com/

4 mins. to being a better person

I watched this clip on my friend's blog and I had to post it also. This is our beloved prophet who just recently passed, Gordon B. Hinckley. What a wonderful message, it warms my soul.

Master Cleanse

What was I thinking! I know, it was the detox of all the gunk that is building up inside of me from all those Wendy's stops and delicious pizza and candy and all the "no" "no" foods. I'm on day 6 and I really don't want any of those foods right now but I could go for some fruit.
This is how it went down. I heard about the Master cleanse and i thought that i would look into it. So I talked with a few people who had done it and they said they loved it, they felt so great afterward and they lost 18 lbs. I thought, "well I'm in!" So I went to the store got my lemons, Grade B maple syrup and cayenne pepper, the next day i began my 10 day cleanse (that's right, 10 days of this lemonade mix and h20). Day one wasn't bad at all, I just kept myself busy and everything was fine. They say that the first three day are the hardest and if you can get past the first three days you are good to go. The second day was alright, it was hard to make the girls breakfast, lunch and dinner because you are so used to taking a bit here and there, and I couldn't. Also my friend Julie, who lives right next door, popped by and she smelled so good i could have taken her arm off. She said, "oh ya I just got done cooking fried rice, hahahaha." Ya real funny. I booted her out. That night i did a salt water flush and it didn't work. (it is supposed to make you go to the bathroom) Day three was the supposed to be the hardest, but it was actually really easy. I did the swf in the morning on an empty stomach and walla, it worked!! I will spare you the details. In the evening you are supposed to drink smooth move tea, so I did and i got major cramps for about 15 minutes and wammo. 4th day was fine same as the others. Then the 5th day was very hard. Everything i made for the girls I wanted to eat, all the goldfish crackers, popcorn everything, I just wanted it. I even called Micah and told him i was having a weak moment and i wanted to quite. That night I came really close to stopping. Micah was eating a yummy salad and i just wanted to crunch some food. But i told myself that it is the end of the day i tomorrow will be a better day.
So here I am on day 6, great job I say. Today will be busy, I have to drive down to my in laws and I'm doing an Uppercase Living party tonight so the day will go by fast. I just have to keep my focus on why I'm doing this. To rid my body of toxins and clean myself out, losing weight is a bonus. 4 more days left!
