And then…


So, I finally broke my photo ban, but at least I used one of the finest films of all time in doing so.

Anyway, when last we left off I was coming home from Denver. Thursday and Friday were a bit of a blur. I was booked solid on Thursday and most of Friday. When I got home on Thursday, Kelly had the girls out. I NEVER have the house to myself and so, even though I told Kelly I was going for a run, I promptly fell asleep on the couch. I slept for 2 hours, and then had no problem going to bed a few hours later. Friday I drove around all day again, but wasn’t feeling great. Saturday I woke up with a horrid pain in my throat. Kelly took the girls to the library in the morning so I could rest and I slept another two hours. Not usually a napper, pinky swear.

That afternoon, I cracked and went to Urgent Care. And yeah, I had strep throat. They gave me the option of a giant shot in the butt or a Z-pack. The one and done approach of the shot was tempting, but the doc made it sound pretty bad, so I went with the oral option.

Sunday, I was still no good. You can imagine how stoked Kelly Belly was given I was gone all week and then sick all weekend. Anyway, she took Haley and Morg to church in the morning and then took Morg skiing in the afternoon. Haley, Piper, Rory and I went to the park, but I was in a foul mood and probably not on my best daddy form.

Feeling spot on now and we are getting some nice spring-like weather this week, so I’m trying to make the most of it. Had a week with practically no exercise, so starting from scratch again. The strep did curb my appetite, so I lost a couple pounds, so that was a bonus. Got out for a goodie today, so that’s something.

Fingers now crossed for the rest of the family to stay healthy!















Where Was I?

I don’t remember and I’m really lazy right now.

Great start.

Spent most of last week working the Outdoor Retailer show. It’s weird having the show so close to home. It’s like I’m home, but I’m not really. Gone first thing in the morning and if there’s a dinner home at 10 or whatever…Anyway, good show. A lot more action than last year.

This week has been frantic. Moreso than usual. Found out today that Haley and Piper have strep throat. Morgan does too, although she has not been to the doctor yet. I don’t know what’s going on with us this year. We just can’t seem to stay healthy. It’s pretty frustrating. 

We got a huge dumping of snow this morning, after a pretty good one yesterday. And there’s more in the forecast. I hope to get up on the mtn a bit tomorrow, but we need to get Morgs in to the doc firsties and I should probably do some work or something. 

In other news, I got really fat (for a skinny guy) doing nothing last week, so I’m trying to do something this week. Seriously, heaviest I’ve ever been. Because of all the snow and my unwillingness to ride a bicycle indoors, I’ve been running the last couple days. Here’s to getting skinny for a skinny guy.
