It happened again, I RESPRAINED my ankle. Only this time it hurts more, and it is just getting old. Yes I am a clutz, but this time wasnt my fault. As a family we were tilling up the garden and planting some honeysuckle, River our always toy fetching dog, ran right into me on his way to get a toy. David said my feet, both of them at the same time, went up in the air about 2 feet and I can tell you when I came down, I was not laughing. I was screaming in pain. He helped me into the house and I crawled the rest of the way. Which means I can't drive again!!!!! And I am in pain. Why do our bodies fight us sometimes? Mine needs a break from the world, because It just isn't working the way it suppose to!

2 weeks ago, I go to a Allergist to find out what food allergy I have (which we suspect is some kind of pepper), 92 shots later, I am allergic to DOGS..haha we have 2, pretty much ever tree and plant Arizona has to offer, strawberries, apples, and bananas, my 3 favorite foods. Any way, They can't test for peppers or spices, so i have to get blood testing for that. So I have had 4 anaphylaxis episodes in 4 years, and they are getting worse and last longer, and come on faster. The doctor prescribes me an EPIPEN, which you shoot into your thigh right when you feel it coming on. Well I go to fill the prescription, but it is $ 120 dollars , so that is not happening. Fast forward a week, and we stop by our favorite friends house, while they are having a potluck, we scoop up some food and go out by the pool to eat. I take 2 bites of my chicken dish I picked out, and guess what happened next..........................................................
ALLERGY anaphylaxis SHOCK. Yep. SO that was saturday, I am still on benadryl, Cream, and pills only at night, because It knocks me out, that is a funny story for another time. My face is burning, and itchy and red and horrible, thus no pictures at this time. I am ready to just be a healthy family with no surgeries, ear infections, hives!, Sprained ankle, sore stomachs, sore and torn Achilles tendons...get me drift. I have a baby shower to go to on Saturday, and I am not going like this so it better clear up soon........
on a side note, David asked me how my face was feeling.. I responded, it's killing me and burning and itching, and he responded.....It's killing me too. at least we still have a little humor in all this madness!

***As a side note, this is not a complaint, just a record of my busy day...on a very badly sprained ankle. I try not to complain, because so many do, and mine is a record for good, so only happy things!
Holy crow, where did the time go! Connor had a fun birthday. he got afew gifts, and people here to sing to him, and cake and ice cream, what more could a kid ask for.
Our sweet Connor is a good kid. He has always been gentle, thoughtful, loving, kind, and stubborn, but then again David and I both are, sooooo he doesnt have much of a choice. Connor is a great big brother, and is a very intelligent 3rd grader! He was tested in to the gifted program and missed by 2 percent, so maybe this year. COnnor has a wonderful testimony of the Lord and enjoys participating in church activities. Connor loves math science and history. he is a wonderful reader, and loves Scouts. He I a golfer! He has golfed for over 2 years, and enjoys the game. He starts piano lessons, and is great at everything he does. He loves to help in the garden and actually has successfully grown many things, well. Connor loves his gameboy loves the WII and has some great friends We love you Connor and we are so thankful you chose our family to be a part of. We love you an are so proud of your example. Happy Birthday

Tink was soo tired!
Ethan had his shots the other day and is not feeling well. He can't even move his arms. He had a fever and just not feeling well. He did okay when we dropped him off, and we talked to the nurse so we will see if he has to come home. what a trooper! I hate those dumb shots.
The Hoopes Gang. New clothes, new shoes, new bags, weird, tired smiles!
