We're Alive, Barely, but We're Alive

No pictures yet, b/c you see I don't know how to run this laptop and do the pictures. And poor Jarom is in bed asleep, sicker than a dog. Yep, we're all sick. The kids picked up a cold/flu bug last week and it has officially passed through us all. Poor Jarom is right in the thick of it at the moment. It didn't affect the kids the way it did Jarom and I. We've both had high fevers along with the coughs and runny noses. To put it nicely....it pretty much is awful.

Just know, that we made it, we've seen Mickey, and we're keeping the drug stores busy. We're bound and determined to make this fun for the kids, sick or not. Can you believe it? We get the sickest we've been all year, the week we decide to take the kids on vacation?

On a good note, the weather is going to be absolutely beautiful today and I'm going to wear my capris!!!

The "Vegas Talks" cracked me up. Too bad that they DO have that stuff all over. I guess they don't call it "Sin City" for nothing - oh my.

Hope you guys feel better quickly and have a GREAT time.

Say "Hi' to Mickey!

Wendy said...

Oh no!!!! I can't believe the timing. I hope the bug passes quickly and everybody is able to enjoy Disneyland and the GORgeous weather.

Don't talk to me about capris. Snowflakes are falling outside right now. (sigh)

Get better! Have fun!

Jeni said...

That is awful! There is definitely something major going around...we had it last week also! I am sooooo sorry you had to get it on your trip, but hey! At least you are sick in your capris, right?

Nichole said...

hey, you're staying in a hotel right? look on the bright side, less clean up than if you were home sick!

Deidra Smith said...

I like how Nichole thinks. Way to look on the bright side.

I hope you took all the bad luck with you, 'cuz getting sick on our trip is exactly what I have been fearful of for us.

Ew, yuck. NO fun. Hope it goes away soon.

So sorry that you got the vacation flu. I hope that you are better soon and it was all worth it.

I loved the Vegas talk, I hate that place. It makes me sick to go there with all the billboards and what not....

I will have to talk with you about your trip. I think I have the man convinved that we can go and should go so I will need to pick your brain about what to do and what not and all that stuff.

Take care and I wish that I was closer to bring you a good book, warm socks, a month supply of kleenex, and a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup.

I'm soooo sorry! Okay---bright side of this event---good thing you are driving and not flying, as the changes in altitude are a killer on the sinuses when you're sick... Get well soon!!!!

"The Queen in Residence" said...

Are you really okay? I am missing you and hope that all is well there. Come back to us......

Jennifer P. said...

ooooh---so sorry! I know I'm a few days late and you're probably (I hope!) all better now. I saw you were commenting, but I didn't think you'd be blogging on your vacation :)!

Hope you coughed on Mickey good. He could probably use a sick day too :)

Lee Ann said...

Are you really alive? Are you home?

Miki said...

I feel so in the know....that I was the first to know. Thanks for letting me in on the action early (and no, I wouldn't have been offended if I were the last to know either. Sometimes it's just fun the be "the friend").

Anyway, since you've been gone, Emily gone, Jennifer in California, and Tricia with gardening on her mind, I've had absolutely zero motivation to BLOG! I finally started checking everyone out just last night, and I see I'm not the only ONE!!!!!

It made me feel better that everyone hasn't made a gazillion posts. whew.

Anyway, take your time in getting your rhythm back....it will take a while after all you've done! I've enjoyed taking a break from the hustle and bustle of everything as well.
