Will they last all night?!!?

This weekend is RIVERBLAST at the park in New Ulm. We set the tent up tonight & Phil, Nick, & Lexi are gonna tent it. Think they'll make it all night?! That would be a first if they do. The events don't start until tomorrow night but Phil thought it'd be a good idea to try it tonight to see how they do. Plus he doesn't work tomorrow so why not!?

Saturday morning him & I are gonna do the two mile fun run. I still can't figure out why they call these things FUN RUNS, what part of running is FUN?? Since I'm not a tenter.....I said I may do it Saturday night...but probably sleep in the van! We'll see........

There were about 40 campers and about 6 or so tents set up already! The thing gets bigger & bigger every year! We just hope the music is good!

Volleyball is starting!

This article was in today's Mankato Free Press. I like how she mentions me........ok, so she's talking about ALL her fans, not just me! LOL

Stomach Flu

Wow this has been some nasty bug that has hit us. Nick actually started it I think last Thursday when we left for vacation. He had the diarrhea that day & I guess a few more days but never said anything or complained about it.

So then Zander got the stomach/diarrhea bug starting on Monday the 28th. I got it Wednesday. I never threw up though. I had horrible stomach pains Monday night for over 5 hours. I felt ok on Tuesday, but then Wednesday had the runs again. Today I'm feeling alright.

Phil came home from work last night & said he felt terrible. He had the runs at work & felt like crap. He made it to work today. He said yesterday people were dropping like flies with four going home & just as many if not more call ins.

Well Zander STILL has the diaarrhea, this is day 11 with it. He's been eating/drinking fine but occassionally complains of a belly ache. We had a potluck at the park last night for Nick's baseball team & after we ate Zander was moaning so I took him home. Phil was in bed & said Zander went to bed pretty much right away...at 7:00. I can tell he has lost some weight too and one of the neighbors commented he looked thin. I have a call in to our doctor right now to see what he says. Not sure what they will do if there is anything he can take or if they want to do more *tests*. I've been doing as they said and *letting it run its course* but how long do you do that?!?

Go away bug go away.

Thursday Day 1

We left for our Wisconin vacation shortly after Phil got home from work. Plans are to spend 2 days in Lewiston, 2 days in Milwaukee, and 5 days in the Dells. We got to Lewiston & went to a pie & ice cream social at church. MMMMMMM
We had a perfect vacation as far as weather was concerned. Beautiful days/every day. Zander got sick Monday, I got it on Wednesday & have been dealing with it for SIX days now. It's horrible but I think I'm on the mend. I was about ready to head to the hospital last night but finally fell asleep after dealing with stomach pains for over FIVE hours.
