Well we are back in Muleshoe! The doctor said it was okay so here we are. Steven's working and I am taking it easy in the hotel room with my new friend Vicodin! The doctor removed the cyst and also found endometriosis that she removed. She said the endometriosis could have been why the cyst wasn't going away and it could have been what caused our little emergency room visit a month ago. Thank you for everyone that was concerned or kept me in their prayers.

Well Steven and I are now in Muleshoe, Tx! Steven took a summer job working hail claims and we were sent to Muleshoe last Friday. For those of you that don't know, Muleshoe is located north of Lubbock and about 30 miles from Clovis, NM. The most exciting thing about this town is the world's largest mule shoe(see attached photo, I know you will be amazed)! We have only been here for four days and we have already seen several storms that are nothing like the storms we would see in Brenham. On the drive up here we encountered a dust storm with 65mph winds and hail. I thought Steven was going to turn around and head back to Brenham but we sat at a gas station for two hours and let it pass. Other than the storms Muleshoe is not a very exciting town. The hotel is a dump and our choice of restaurants are limited to a McD's, a homestyle restaurant, and pizza. I don't even like shopping at Walmart but there is not even a Walmart in Muleshoe, its 30 minutes away in Clovis. But looking at the bright side at least we aren't spending everything we make. We do plan to come home for a few days while I have my surgery Thursday. We are hoping that both of us will get to come back after that but it will depend on what my doctor says. I'll keep you posted on where we are next!

Last week was my parents last week in New Orleans so we took a trip to visit and take in the sites! This was my first trip to New Orleans. Steven has been before but this was the first time he was able to take in some of the sites besides the French Quarter. Since my parents have been there for a while they were able to show us some of the areas of the city that are still not rebuilt, it is really sad and amazing that the water got that high. Other than that we took a dinner cruise on the Steamboat Natchez, went on a swamp tour, and visited the Oak Alley Plantation (beautiful trees). We of course did a little gambling, I won't say how much I won or how much Steven lost! The French Quarter was definitely an eye opener and a little stinky too! We saw several movies being filmed, too bad we didn't see any real movie stars up close. We also took a quick trip to Biloxi, MS one day while dad met with a client. We spent some time at the Beau Rivage and drove along the beach.
Since I love to read blogs from my friends I decided I should create one for Steven and I. Well not that Steven really cares but I'm sure I will have post about him too. I'm not sure how to do everything yet but I am learning now that I have the summer to play!
