Sorry I've been on a blog hiatus for a while. Just haven't had the motivation to blog I guess! I did think it would be a good idea to tell you what has been going on in the West household.

Paul is starting work on Aug 30th at the Coeur d'Alene Casino as an IT tech. We are both so relieved! And thankful. There are so many people looking for work it's really a weight off our shoulders to be lucky to have two incomes.

Stella turns 7 months old on September 2nd and Kobe turns 9 on November 8th. Feel free to send presents.

I've had a lot of health issues that have come about in the last couple of months. Without getting too much into it I'll just say that a lot has changed, health insurance is amazing, and it's incredible that things may not be functioning in one's body and one might not even know it.

In lighter news, I have a lot of fun stuff coming up. Paul and I are taking the dogs and going camping at a campsite at Lake Pend Oreille (pronounced Ponderay surprisingly) from Sept 9-11, which should be funny. Kobe will probably bark at everything! The four of us will be sleeping in a tent. Hopefully it isn't miserable. I also am going to Gig Harbor, WA with my co-workers the weekend after the camping trip for a continuing education class on edema (swelling, or water retention). The people I work with live for alcohol and are tons of fun, so I'm looking forward to it.

Well that's all for now! Hope all my faithful readers are doing well!


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your recent health issues! I'll keep you in my thoughts.

    It's great to hear Paul found a job, I'm sure all are relieved! And happpppy birthday to the puppies (well, puppy is dawg).

  2. I hope you things are improving with your health and that whatever is going on it isn't too serious. I too will keep you in my thoughts.

    Camping is so much fun! Your dogs will love it, especially with all the new smells. You BETTER blog about that and post pictures.

  3. Your "faithful readers" are patiently waiting for a new blog post!
