This Weeks Highlights

Well really, the highlight was last weekend when my Snow grrrls and I got together with our families for our Annual Hoo-Hah. I linked to Jessie's blog, because she already posted about it and it's easier. :)

We came home Sunday afternoon, and took the Preston route, vs the Tremonton route from Logan. I never realized how much faster it really is! Crazy thing is that Google maps tells me it's 13 minutes quicker to go through Tremonton, but we shaved basically an hour off our drive through Preston. Anyway, it was a BEAUTIFUL day, so we stopped at a rest area just south of Idaho Falls for a nice picnic, and "hike" around some lava fields. Very cool.

Once returning home, as tradition continues I got sick. Again. Last time we spent time in Logan I came home with a stomach bug, and poor Rob puked his guts out for the better part of a morning. This time I have a horrible sore throat--so much that I even went to the doctor today. It's been absolutely terrible. Dr. said that it's not strep--yet, but they'll keep my culture growing over the next few days to see if anything develops. In the mean time I can alternate Tylenol and Ibuprofen every three hours for the pain, and to continue with my salt-water gargles--which I started on Tuesday. BTW--if you have TOO MUCH salt in the water it makes you gag, and basically want to throw up. I found this out the hard way and thought I was going to yak this morning in the shower. ICK! Good thing I hadn't eaten or drunk anything yet. :)

So I'm sick, Rob has THANKFULLY (knock on wood) avoided the ickness. I've come home every day from school and taken about a 3 hour nap, and haven't done homework in three days. Lucky for me I can get away with this because I'm totally ahead in all my classes. With just a little reading this weekend, and by writing up a lab I'll be totally back in the game. Best part about it is that I have ONE class tomorrow; I'm out of school by 8:45 AM! Huzzah!

One last thing--we bought our car last summer knowing that the air conditioning didn't work. We've meant to get it fixed, but never have. So a couple of weeks ago I got an email from the automotive dept on campus looking for cars needing repair, I jumped on it and volunteered willingly. Basically, it is now blowing clean, cool, refreshing air for the low bargain price of $38.50. Nothing like getting students to fix your car, while charging no labor!
We are ecstatic!

I am sorry you are sick! That is no fun. But we did have fun at the big Hoo-hah! Thanks for driving all that way to hang out with us. Get better soon, and that is awesome about your car!

Kristin- I got sick too. Mine hasn't been as bad as yours though. The symptoms presented themselves Monday and have gotten progressively worse throught the week: dizziness, headache, runny nose, soar throat and then a yucky cough. I almost stayed home from work yesterday, but I've already missed so much work this year that I decided to stick it out. It was a long day, but I survived. I woke up this morning thinking I would be worse than yesterday, but was happy to find that I actually feel a bit better. Maybe it's because we cut Sean's hair into a mowhawk last night:) Or not..either way, he looks great:)
