Ok, so I haven't been blogging!

My last blog said I'm alive! Well, sort of! I still have had a virus which the doctor seems to think it was caused by allergies that turned into an ear infection and sinus infection. She put me on meds to clear up my allergies that didn't work, so I called and they put me on different meds and told me I have to have allergy testing in the next few weeks. That is where they do the needle test in your arm or back. OH JOY!!! Last week I had no voice and Ruben said I sounded like a gangsta! All in all I think I am feeling better, at least today. We have been very busy doing "things" besides being sick. I have to get my team ready for the Relay for a Life, we put in new cabinets and floor in the living room, not to mention softball (finally over yeah!!) and all the other sports. I will post some pics when time permits!!!!

Well after feeling like I was going to die for a couple of days, I feel like I am on the road to recovery! After doing about 20 loads of laundry and trying to get over this virus I have, I got the stomach flu! Olivia says I have West Nile virus. I still can't kick it, but having the stomach flu on top of it, was horrible! Friday afternoon I think the girls were finally on the mend and I started to feel like crap. Sure enough that night I started praying to the porcelain God! I haven't been that sick since I had salmonella poisoning 2 years ago. Saturday morning I couldn't get out of bed (actually could not walk) because I ached so bad everywhere. Maggie called my mom and arranged for them to pick up Olivia and take her to watch the parade because she was a little wary of riding in the parade because she was so sick the day before. Maggie then walked herself and Izabell downtown to meet their coaches to ride in the parade. She got all 3 of them ready and off they went with their gatorades. What a kid! I think I did something right!!!

After the parade, my mom and Dick took them to the fair all day. I couldn't have asked for better parents! In my sickened stupor, I forgot it was also their anniversary!! Happy late anniversary guys, I love you!!!

Needless to say, Mother's Day and the Mayfair were a flop for me this year. This is the first time in 31 years I have not made it to the fair! I missed HEART in concert too!

Anyhow, I posted a couple of pictures from our camping trip that seemed so long ago. The pictures are not the greatest. Not sure what was up with my camera. I'm still learning how to use it!

Of course Olivia had to be in the front. The
girls were climbing on some old roots.

Gotta have marshmallows!!

This used to be the largest tree in California
until it fell in 1995. OMG I can't believe how
big some of these trees are!!!

This was supposed to be my Happy Cinco De
Mayo picture but I'm a little late at posting it!

Picture of the week

Is this paradise? I don't think so....I have had a horrbile cold for a week that started when we were camping and on Tues. Ruben started to get it. On Wednesday, Izabell started throwing up every 15 minutes for about 8 hours straight. I would give her water so she had something to throw up and she had the dry heaves so bad not to mention the pressure causing it to come out the other end! On Thurs. She ran a fever and had diarrhea all day but no more throwing up! On the road to rest for the night for me so I thought! 11:30pm Olivia starts throwing up! A little more independent than her sister but she also had it coming out both ends. Izabell started throwing up again and she had blood in hers. Today, Olivia has a fever and Izabell says the bug in her tummy has left. We sent Maggie away for a couple of days to try and spare her. She is back now so we will see what happens. I did actually close my day care today. First time for an illness in a long time. I got up this morning after about 3 hours sleep and decided I couldn't do it!!! Lord knows I have plenty of laundry to do....bleaching everything...I have no food in the house...and I feel like a giant piece of poop!!! Blah, Blah, Blah....Mayfair parade tomorrow?? Well, we'll see.....

Comp League started

After almost a month of rainout games, Maggie's comp team started their season. The weekend of the April 29th she played 3 games. Unfortunately they lost all 3 games they had. Above is Maggie saving one of only a couple of balls they came to the goal. The rest off the time I caught her dancing or doing push ups because she was bored. This particular team beat us 1-0. The ball that got past her was way too high for her reach.

Yes, we are back from our camping trip in the redwoods but I got sick when we were gone so I will post in a day or so.
