Read the Box

I had some major heart burn all day yesterday, (it could have been the Famous Dave's we ate the night before). So I took some expired tums and of course they didn't do a thing, so later on that night I thought I would take something else since the expiration date really does mean something I guess. I opened up a box of Zantac, popped it in my mouth and began to chew, only immediately to find out that you aren't supposed to chew them, your supposed to take them like a pill. That was the worst taste I have experienced since I can remember. I ran for a bottled water, nothing would take that taste out of my mouth. I ran to the sink and started to spit it out, coughing and coughing. Bryce came in concerned wondering what in the heck had just happened from the two seconds I had just left him previous. I finally stopped coughing, yes the taste still there, and then came the throw-up. A couple times actually, sorry for the details, I just thought there was a lesson here for us all. As Bryce put it, "you should always read the box, it says right here to take with water. If you would have asked me, I would have told you." Gee thanks hun. I didn't have that exact thought run through my head as I was throwing-up. Needless to say I had even worse heart burn then before. Lesson learned, read the box!

Settin Sail!

Well last night I booked a cruise to the Caribbean. The anticipation of going on vacation is always so hard for me, I get like a little kid who knows it's about time to go to Disney Land! I can't wait! So I'm glad I only have to wait 20 days or so before we set sail. We fly into Puerto Rico first class, you read it right FIRST CLASS! (I thought I would all caps it in case you missed it the first time). I'm not sure if I'm more excited about that or the cruise. I'm sure those of you out there reading this that have been lucky enough to ride first class, are thinking, it's not all it's cracked up to be. Well I say whatever! It's always so depressing walking passed all those seats to get to mine at the end of the plane next to a bathroom or the kitchen and being wedged in between some stinky person who forgot to bathe or just keeps letting them slip. I won't have to wonder about what various food items they are being offered, while I had to pay for my slop. I will get to stretch my legs out and recline all the way back if I so choose. And if I do have to sit by someone stinky, it will be my husband, and that is a stink I can handle. Let's not forget the fact that I don't have to pay for my luggage. I get to take 3- 70lb bags per person plus a carry on. I thought to myself, why would I ever need that many? I may do it just cause I can! I can't get to accustomed to this first class thing. It only happened because of sky miles. So I thank you Delta for making my wishes come true. I'll keep you posted if it happens to not be all it's cracked up to be, but in the mean time, I CAN'T WAIT!!!

I'm Back

Wow, where does the time go? I have really been bad lately. So just a quick re-cap, quick because I really can't remember much of what has gone on this past little while, that's how long it's been since my last post.
We went camping to Lake Lyman with most of the Stevenson's. We missed those of you who did not come.
Yes that's Abbie in the middle of our canoe and no we never fell in. Such a good dog!

Bryce and Rob heading back from fishing

Family canoe ride

Work work work and more work. Work is good, I have it, so no complaints here.

We planned and had our Primary Program, whew, glad that's over. Sorry, no pictures of that ;)

Halloween. Got bored and decided to put my dog in a costume. What a cute pumpkin cape.

Got my first one of these a few days ago.

What the heck? Did you notice the date on my post?

Took Abbie to the Vet today, not usually such ground breaking news, but today was a little different than most visits.
As you can see, I'm sitting in a chair and my 75lb dog climbed up behind me, wrapped her head behind mine, hiding, shivering when the vet tech walked in the room. Hilarious! I love that dog.
