Wish I Had Something Exciting to Write About...

but I don't! I got nothin' people! You'd think I'd be livin it up in the Lone Star State. Partyin' till the cows come home. But my mom's been working from home this week from 1-10 p.m. and she uses all three computers, so I can't get online during that time. She's on a conference call that whole time training people in God knows where, so I can't talk on the phone! And it has to be silent on her side of the house b/c the sound of wild indians singin a war dance in the background would not be professional. So I have to keep the natives entertained on the other side of the house. So you see, not really an exciting trip thus far. But her job pays for me to come here and buys all my childrens' clothing, so can I really compain? I was supposed to go to Dallas this week, but my stomach bug put a dent in those plans. I'm STILL recovering! Today was my first day to NOT sit on my holy throne but I only ate a half a bowl of soup. So I haven't even gotten to enjoy that yummy Texas cuisine I was longing for! But hopefully everything will be on the up and up after today. Tomorrow I am meeting a dear friend of mine in San Antonio for dinner. So that will be fun and I can't wait to see her! Friday, I'm heading to Houston to visit friends and family that I haven't seen in like 6 years so that will be exciting, I'm going to the Aggie game on Saturday, and then heading to Dallas next week to visit lots of friends and play and eat and get caught up. Can't wait!!! Then there will be one more Aggie game that following Saturday then I head back to FL on that Sunday. That's my trip in a nutshell. I am, however, enjoying my mom's very cozy and clean house with hot baths GALORE just so you don't think my trip is totally sucking!

Please pray for Cary. He's had this virus since FRIDAY and it hit him WAY harder than it hit me. He's been at work the last 2 days, but he's still running fever and can't keep anything in him. I think I finally convinced him to go to the doctor tomorrow. Not that they can do anything about a virus. But I want to make sure he's not dehydrated. He hates water and won't drink it. He drinks sodas and juice instead and that sugar is not helping things I'm sure. SO..any of our friends reading this in Florida, if anyone just might be having oh I don't know, homemade chicken and rice or jello or something kind of bland for dinner the next few days, can you please feed my husband? I'd be so greatful! He's had a half a bowl of spaghettio's, a half a manwhich, and some KFC mashed potatoes. That's all he's had since Friday. Just keep him in your prayers. He's trying to get back to normal and he's SO sick and tired of being sick and tired, but this virus just won't leave him alone. And please pray that my girls don't get it. That would pretty much destroy the rest of the trip. I've been germ xing and washing hands like crazy and I stayed in my room all day Sunday and Monday trying not to expose them.

Well, that was a lot considering "I had nothing exciting to write about..."

I will keep all of you guys in my prayers. It definitely sounds like no one needs that virus - ick! Hope hubby recovers soon....you know I have noticed guys don't know how to eat or take care when they are sick, they want us to do it. My hubby is the same way. Do you have any fun and exciting places planned to eat in Houston and Dallas? Oh, do you have your college picks ready for the weekend? Hope there won't be another Michigan mistake.
