One of my favorite days on vacation was the trip to Lee’s Ferry & the Colorado River downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam. It was a beautiful day. The sun was out & the clouds were puffy, blocking the sun at times. When Troy & Brett’s grandfather passed away, Brett was given the fishing boat to take down and use on the river. Troy’s Grandpa & Grandma were very big into the outdoors and had an outboard fishing boat. I learned a little about motors during this trip. The most important thing I learned is in order for them to work, you have to swear at them. Then they start up but they are mad.. then the motor refuses to work ever again because someone got angry with it.

To those people who know me, know I am not a camper. I don’t tent it, I don’t RV it, my idea of roughing it is a hotel room. A hotel room with a shower, a sink & the most important thing.. a toilet.
. There was a sound from an approaching boat, I just layed there. A lady came on board, I said “Hi I am Tiffany and I am dying.” Then a few seconds later a guy came in with a huge medical bag & he started asking me all sorts of questions. Was I keeping anything down? How did I feel? He determined that I needed additional antibiotics & he gave me one then and there and told me to drink green tea. Right away after I drank the tea, I started to feel better. The antibiotic kicked in and I was able to eat a banana..and I kept it down. To me that was a miracle. I was so blessed to have a PA come right to the boat, at the exact time I needed one. The rest of the day I was able to get up and walk around and be among the land of the living. I am so grateful that we got our sign.

Troy and I decided at the end of June that he was through working for the company that he had worked for, for over 10 years. There are many reasons that we had come to this decision. We thought about it, prayed about it & argued about it. But, the time had come. I was going on vacation with or without him. If he continued to work for his boss, we never would have been able to go on vacation. His boss had taken all PTO (paid time off) away from his employees. Well.. not really... the boss had taken it away from non-related people that worked for him, so that included one other person besides Troy. There were so many other reasons to quit & I may get into that later- or I may not. (I am going to use this blog as my ranting/raving place for a while.) The time had come for Troy to part ways with this company. It was a great thing. There was a huge pressure that came off our shoulders. No more 12 hour days! Troy came home and we packed to go on our first vacation by ourselves, ever.
