This Week

Well, it's been an interesting week. It started with my birthday and Father's Day on Sunday. We tried to visit a new church (one down here closer to home), but ended up not being able to find it. Colin had to stop and buy a map and realized he'd been looking in the wrong town. The church is in Hoquiam and he'd been looking on the edge of Aberdeen. By the time we found the church it was already 11:15 or 11:20 and church service starts at 10:45. So we decided to wait and try the next Sunday, rather than disrupt anything.
We went to Home Depot and bought paint colors to put up around the house. I bought some yellow for the kitchen that is too light (not yellow enough for us) and a tan color for the home school room. I also got some exterior paint, but I think it's too light.
By the time we got done with that it was time for lunch so we had lunch at a very nice Chinese buffet. Everything was delicious.
We drove home after lunch, narrowly escaping a wreck as a lady pulled into our lane while we were in the lane. She just about hit our driver's side door. Colin had to get over on the shoulder and honk to get her to see us. That was scary!
Once we were home, Colin's parents came over to celebrate my birthday with presents and cake. I got some nice birthday money which I used to buy and dining room table and chairs off of craigslist.
I also got a belated and very unwelcome present for my birthday....the stomach flu. It hit at 4:15 am and lasted for a couple of days. I'm still working on feeling completely normal even today. Colin had the stomach flu Monday night and Tuesday.
Wednesday I thought I was well enough to go back to work (and I really wanted to get my table. I had planned to get it Monday, but of course, that didn't work). I was semi okay in the morning, but after I ate lunch my queasy stomach returned. It lasted all afternoon. It got better after I was in my van and put the ac on full blast. The colder I was, the better I felt.
We got the table and chairs and went to dinner to celebrate 12 yrs. since my surgery. We went to Shari's and had very mild food....omelets and toast. We only ate about a third of our food and brought the rest home.
Yesterday was school and tumbling and a little cleaning,but if I did too much, I felt woozy. We're going to try to get to the church again this Sunday and we're going to have some friends over for lunch, hopefully my energy will return.
Oh, I almost forgot. The paint that I bought for the home school room never made it to that room. We ended up putting it on our ugly dark paneling wall and it is fantastic! I'm going to see if I have a good picture for you to see the difference and for my mom, I'll take a picture of the new table and post it soon.

I wonder if you guys had food poisoning from the Chinese instead of the flu? That room looks awesome!

It wasn't food poisoning. The only reason we know that positively is that the tummy flu has now gone through at least 7 or 8 of our relatives!
