Stay at home wife

Well, its been a week and I am still jobless. I am not complaining too much because I have had lots to do, and its been beautiful weather. Shannon and I took a trip down the Cedar river on our Kayaks, and we learned that we need to be more prepared when rafting. We were both flipped at least 3 times, we broke a digital camera and my bruises have still not healed. Rocks can be real mean. Last weekend we noticed that Tina (our dragon) was not feeling very well. I took her into the Exotics Vet on Saturday and it turns out she has Vitamin D/Calcium deficiency. Poor thing. Any of you out there that have reptiles, here is something that we were unaware of that was close to claiming the life of our pet. UV lamps do burn out! Even if the light is working, that doesn't mean that there are still rays being emitted. Change them often, or your pet will get really sick and/or deformed. Luckily we caught Tina's illness pretty early on, and it looks as though she is going to be fine. She ate 3 crickets today, and had no trouble doing it. We are going camping this weekend with our ward, and I am really looking forward to it. I love camping, and Matty and I always have fun on our little trips. Ill post pics when we get back!
