What is my husband doing right now? He could be providing dinner to an innocent old lady, he could be wiping an old harry bum, he could be giving a sponge bath to the toothless and wrinkly. Really what he is doing is helping those people that we will all become someday. The boobs will sag, the double chin will wobble, the knees and back will be weak and the memory will be spotty, this is where we will all be someday, maybe 50% of you will not have saggy boobs, but you get the picture. Either way, Ben has a cool new job and he is working a 12 hour graveyard shift as I write.
A CNA is a Certified Nurses Assistant, this job is paying for him to get the certification while he is taking 4 classes at the Utah Valley University. This is a great thing because he makes a good hourly rate, they will work around his school schedule and it will be a great bonus to help him get into nursing school. That is his career choice at this point anyway.

Went skiing in the backcountry for the first time last week. It was amazingly fun and amazingly hard. I almost died, not really, I almost threw up though. I didn't eat enough, wasn't in good enough physical condition, and kept slipping because I'm an ameteur so all my energy was wasted just trying to get up the hill so the down was less the rewarding because I was beat. But it will go down as one of the coolest days ever. Thank you to Adam and Mike who saw me through. I'll do better next time, i promise. Can't wait to go again. Here is some footage.
This makes me look like a really crapy skiier, I'm really not that bad, but had no energy or muscle strength left. I haven't been that drained in...well...ever. It was great! Great motivation to get my butt in gear that is.
This next clip will give you a little chuckle, hehehe.
