Pifer Life

Count Down With The Pifers

4 days until we open the next chapter of our lives---4 DAYS!!!! This week!!! Around about 96 hours....I don't quite know how to describe how I feel right now...I'm a mix between....scared...nervous...excited...anxious...worried....relieved....

This picture is the closest that could possibly describe how I feel right now....
(of course...minus the whiskers...pointy ears....and fur...)

Family Updates

Zach-he is still doing amazing....PT is still going great! He was in quite a bit of pain yesterday, but nothing a bag of ice couldn't fix :) If your new--you can read here about why my husband had knee surgery.

Mom-she's doing great...still going through a depressed phase right now; however when I talked to her this past week she sounds ten times better...so please keep the prayers coming-- they are helping in so many ways...if you are new, you can read here to see why my mom had brain surgery.

Me-Friday I went to my very first "morning" session of boot camp. For those who don't live in TX, we have been ranging from 100-106 degree weather per day...which makes a 6pm boot camp session very hot! So we thought we would try out the morning session, and as it's extremely early-I think with time I can get used to it...the temperature difference is tremendously cooler in the mornings vs. afternoons!! I survived my first week on the birth control pill; I will say those little pills kicked my rear--I was sick pretty much all week. In the past when I took BCP's I took them at lunch, and my Dr. advised me to take them at lunch because it will help me be "routine" about taking them at the same time every day, well after several days of being sick and hardly being able to hold my head up I switched to taking them at night. Although I still get a little sick it's extremely better. (YEA!)

Big events over the weekend…

Zach and I didn't have any big plans over the weekend. Our plans consisted of swimming in our above ground pool and taking it easy....however shortly after we woke up Zach went outside to check the pool (he was filling it up a little since some of the water evaporated)---well I hear this loud gasp come from the kitchen..."Are you ok?"....."What happened....whats wrong?".....silence....I didn't hear anything. I hurried to the kitchen and looked out the window to see what had my husband so stunned, our little 4ft deep pool collapsed...there probably wasn't but only 2inches left in it. (I meant to get a picture but never had time...) So now what do we do?

Zach- "What are you doing Tiffany?"
Tiffany (while throwing her bathing suit on) "I'm going to swim!"
Zach- "In 2 inches of water?"
Tiffany- "Yup!"

So I did....and shortly after came my husband, and our doggies...we sat in that 2inches of water and had a grand ol' time. (I really wish I could have gotten pictures of that!!) Between lounging around in our awesome swimming pool--we played horseshoes, ate lunch and played with our doggies....while always running back to lounge in the 2 inches of water that was left in our "once was" pool. After swimming (if that's what you want to call it...) and staying outside forever until we were burnt to a crisp--Zach started dinner...he made delicious ribs, pork tender loin, and roasted corn....mmm!!!! After dinner we got ready to head downtown to watch the fireworks!!

Sunday morning we woke up and headed to the big "July 4th Celebration" service. They had a huge orchestra there--this is one of my favorite services of the year. Zach took me to breakfast after church and then we headed home to relax.

I hope everyone had an amazing 4th of July! To the men and women who fight/fought for our country--THANK YOU for everything you do.

Here are a few pictures from this weekend...


Me and Sasha bright and early in the morning--

LOL! Good for y'all enjoying that 2 inches of water. That is one of the best stories I've heard in a while. I'm glad you were able to relax...something you very much needed after being sick from the bcp's. And I'm quite glad you got to enjoy your am session of bootcamp. Not so much need for that waterbucket..lol.

Love ya!
