Away again

I have not been a very good blogger lately, its been all I can do just getting the Year in Review challenges up! The last couple weeks have been crazy. I came down with a cold just over 2 weeks ago, and a few days later traveled to Houston,Texas for 5 days. The great thing was that when I got there, I felt so much better! I was thinking that Cold FX stuff really worked! yay! Houston was so much fun, I stayed with Scott and his family and they were awesome!!! What a cool family they are, I had a blast hanging out with them. The weather was on the cold side though, it was about what Vancouver was at the time. It even rained one of the days I was there, so I really felt right at home. Of course a couple days after I left Houston, the weather got better and its much warmer there now. Go figure!

I had a long day of traveling back home, 3 flights and the last one got delayed due to a malfunctioning propeller. They actually made us all get off the plane only seconds before we were about to leave for the runway. Luckily I had my laptop and the boxed DVD set of Lost Season 3 with me. (Thanks to my mum for letting me borrow it!). I watched it on all my flights and during layovers at the airports. (it was hard to find an electrical outlet to plug the laptop in – in some of the airports). I am all caught up now and perfect timing – the new season starts this Thursday with a 2 hour episode, I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!

The morning after I got back home I got sick again, although this time worse then before. And I’m still sick and on antibiotics now too.  The past few nights I have had hardly any sleep, maybe a total of 3-4 hours for all 3 nights put together.  Between coughing most of the night and just not being able to sleep at all, its been driving me crazy. It could also have something to do with the fact that I have been taking daytime cold medicine instead of nighttime before going to bed. Brent just pointed this out this morning, I didn’t even realize it was daytime stuff!!

So now I am away for a couple days again, this time I am over on Vancouver Island looking after my parents house & pets while they are away. I am so happy to be here – out in the country, it snowed today so everything looks beautiful. I brought the dogs with me too cause they just love it here, so much room for them to run and play outside. I had to get up at 5am this morning to be at the ferry at 6:30 – so I planned on sleeping the rest of the morning when I arrived at my parents. No such luck. With 4 dogs and 2 cats in the house, every time I finally managed to fall asleep, a dog would bark, or a cat would walk by the room and a dog (usually Zoey) would bolt after it, or a dog would jump on me. ergh. I finally got up off the couch, went into the bedroom and closed the door. It was only minutes later when a bunch of little dogs gathered outside the door and started scratching on the door until I let them in. Needless to say, I didn’t get to sleep. lol
