So I started class on Wednesday. I was thinking of just taking an elective for the linguistics program, and the only one available for the Spring was an Anthropology class. It sounded interesting, the idea behind the class is how language has evolved and plays a major part in human society. The only drawback is I'll need to do at least 50 pages of reading for each class, and write (2) 1-2 page papers. That's mucho trabajo for a spring class. I'm toying with the idea of re-taking one of the classes I dropped when I got sick... We'll see.

Oh, Wifey and I are going to see Spider-man 3 tonight at Midnight!!!

I think it's wifey's first time going to a midnight showing, and the last time I went was when I was 9 and my mom and I went to see Die Hard 2. By the way, not the best movie for a nine year old...

Ok folks, here's an update. The past three weeks have been pretty crappy. I don't know what the heck is going on, but my body and I just are not getting along. It feels like I've had the flu for 3 weeks now. Very not cool. Wifey and I were talking the other day, and I've come to the realization that when I get sick, I go into the "let's just get through it" mode. That involves chicken soup, sprite, toast, and Xbox. I do in fact get kinda depressed because I don't know how much longer this is all going to last. I was told over a year ago that everything would clear up soon. We're still waiting on that...

So, I don't deal with it well everytime I get sick. So, I'm going to see someone about that. I don't know if I need to see a counselor or a shrink, but I figure my bishop can point me in the right direction. I just figure it's been long enough, and as much as I like playing Xbox, I really want to move on in life.

But, on a lighter note, Spring is here and Summer isn't too far behind it. And you know what happens in the Summer? Summer time MOVIES!!!!

Here's a list of the movies Wifey and I (mostly me) are excited to go see:
1. Spider-man 3
2. Fantastic Four 2
3. Transformers
4. Evan Almighty
5. Pirates of the Caribbean 3
6. Bourne Ultimatum
7. Shrek 3
8. Ocean's Thirteen

Wifey's B-Day month continued

So, Wifey's birthday was Tuesday. Monday night we went to see "Meet the Robinson's" but in 3-D! It was awesome. I am a big fan of the animated kids movies, I mean I am a big kid my self. This was by far the best one I've seen so far. It might have just been the 3-D that did it, but it was a really cool movie. Wifey loved it too, and that was what I was going for.

Tuesday, unfortunately, I was sick. I've been running fevers consistently for awhile. They come, and then they go. This week, however, they stayed, and I caught a stomach bug from some people at work. There is nothing that will make you feel lamer than being the party-pooper for someone's birthday. Wifey and I got pizza, and I watched her play her new games until I passed out on the couch (about 9:30).

The actual game that I bought her for her birthday is called "Oblivion." It's a pretty cool game, I rented it a few months ago, but I took it back early. The problem with this game, is that it never ends! I played for about 50 hours that week, and only completed 1 mission of the storyline. Some people might think that's cool, like Wifey, but she realized last night after playing for about 3 hours straight, that you can spend so much time doing things, and never actually get anywhere! But, it has boxes and hidden things, and Wifey is all over that. She loves it.

We're going to be celebrating with her familia this weekend, and I've been toying with the idea of picking up another surprise or two this week, but we'll see...

Happy Easter!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter. I read a great chapter in the Bible this week about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the book of 1st Corinthians, Paul basically lets into the Christians in Corinth because they no longer believed in the doctrine of the resurrection. The Greeks believed the body was naturally evil, and becoming a spirit was their equivalent of reaching Heaven. Paul lets them know that the doctrine of the resurrection was actually one of the key points he hit on when he personally taught them, and their faith in Christ would have been in vain if there was no resurrection. I loved sharing this chapter with members of other faiths only because it helped them to see why the resurrection is so important. A lot of faiths consider resurrection to be the rebirth I call "conversion."

Anyways, to all those faithful loopy bloggers out there, have a great Easter, don't eat too much candy, and watch for more bloggin fun soon!

We lika do da cha cha

OK, so with the xbox 360 you can download demos of the games without actually having to buy them. Very cool feature. So Wifey and I downloaded the demo for a game called "Viva Piñata." It's really a kids game, although it's kinda complicated. Actually, with kids these days, I wouldn't be surprised if a 5 year old could learn how to play faster than me.

Anyways, the premise of the game is you get a certain space of land, and you clean it up and start a garden to attract.... piñatas! You start out with a worm, then two worms, then a bird, then two birds and then the next thing you know there's foxes, badgers, alligators, frogs, snakes, moths, bees, etc etc etc. You have to feed them, build houses, plant flowers, trees, etc. AND, you need to protect your piñatas from the new ones wandering in. Wifey was pretty upset when a fox ate her "Bunnycomb." We played for about 4 hours last night, and Wifey absolutely loved it! ( I must admit, I did too...)

At about 12:30, all of a sudden the demo ended. We were distraught.

So... today, I bought it for Wifey.

And played for 5 hours while she was at work.

General Conference weekend

Our church had its semi-annual conference this weekend, and it was basically awesome. Conference weekend is a blast for many reasons. Let me share these reasons with you real quick:

1.) We get to listen to very uplifting, spiritual talks all weekend. 10 total hours of great pick-me-up lessons to get your batteries charged for the next 6 months. There were some really good ones too...

2.) Omelettes. Every General Conference since we've been married we've had omelettes right before the Saturday morning session. We had some friends over to partake as well. Very De-lish.

3.) The Salt Lake Tabernacle was rededicated. They've been doing a little renovating up there, and it's finally finished. It was great because the whole Sat afternoon session was about the history of the tabernacle, and a few of the amazing things that were brought to light in that building. Just a special part of our heritage. Good to see its finished and open again.

4.) Priesthood. I always look forward to it because you never know if it's going to be a lay-down-the-law talk or an encouraging one. This time was a little of both, but mostly encouraging. It's also cool cause it's just the men-folk. Just a different environment. The closing song was a new one, with the music of "Be still, my soul" and the lyrics from a passage in 2nd Nephi chapter 4. Very cool.

5.) This weekend we played a little Croquet and tried out a new RC plane that Wifey got. Wifey won a game of Croquet (my first time, so nicht so gut for me...) and we had a blast with the plane. I flew it full speed into a brick wall, and then into metal picnic tables. Wifey hit a few trees, and needless to say, it already is in need of serious repair.

6.) One of the best things is the fact I get to spend a full weekend with Wifey and snuggle. We definitely got our snuggle on this weekend...

Quote of the Day

So we have a quote board, and the one that has been up for the past few months just got erased. Here it goes:

Lupe: "Crap!"
Wifey: "What?!?"
Lupe: "I forgot to put the cheese on my cheese sandwich!"


So, I found out the other day that people actually still check my blog. I figured I might as well post an update and let everyone know what's going on...

Since my last post a lot has happened. First, we now know for sure why I got sick. I had some blood work done that proves that I had a serious mold .... exposure? I had an antibody count up in the 3000's (yeah that's high) for toxic mold. The doctor explained to me that probably caused a huge impact on my immune system, which triggered the epstein barr. We're still contemplating a lawsuit, especially after I found out last week the people who moved in are getting sick too... And they have kids.

I went back to school in June, took a Spanish class, got an A. They screwed up my paperwork for the Fall, so I couldn't start on time, took a default Sociology class to fill a GE requirement, and got a C. Don't get me wrong. I'm a good student, and it was a great class... I just got the flu about 5 or 6 times that semester.

I took this semester off to recoup, and it's worked. I've been serious illness free for about 6 weeks, which is the longest I've gone without a serious setback in a loooong time. It's been real exciting.

Wifey and I are about to hit our 3 year anniversary (!!!) which is exciting. We're always looking back at the time we've been together, and we've had some challenges, but we're very much in love and looking forward to a forever together...

So... yeah. That's our life. I'm still working at Zonder. The company has been doing very well. We've got some big things happening in the next few months, and I've been assigned to work with PMCs (Property Management Companies). So instead of working with a husband and wife who occasionally rent out their beach house, I'm working with major companies whose business is vacation rentals.

So if anyone is looking for a place to stay on their next vacation... let me know.

I guess that's good for now. Thanks to all those who check the blog. Peace out.
