a bug

Earlier this week I got a real treat- a chance to re-live some of my childhood memories. Unfortunately those memories involve vomiting non-stop and trying to drink gatorade (so you understand why there aren't pictures with this post). Very special. I was in New York visiting my sister last weekend and started feeling sick while I was at the airport for my flight home and my plane was delayed. Luckily it was only delayed for an hour because by the time we landed I thought I had an intense case of motion sickness that turned into staying up all night with my head in the toilet.

Where I noticed that Aaron hadn't bothered to clean the bathroom while I was gone.

Since I was too sick to sleep, I had a lot of time to remember all of the times I got the stomach flu when I was a kid. One time it was Christmas Day, another time at a friends house… pretty frequently, but I haven't had one since I lived in the dorms in college. And I always had a parent to take care of me- Aaron had to go to work, but he did get me a huge supply of gatorade and saltines (I only drank one bottle and had two crackers). I was so nauseous I couldn't scroll on my phone without losing it.

My immune system was weak from a respiratory infection and a hectic business trip, so I figure that is why I got sick. But I'd like to say these stomach bugs should really be reserved for children only and I wouldn't wish it on anyone!

And my appetite for NYC bagels is pretty much ruined.

new year goals

Moses taking a nap on my running shoes.

1. Save money to potentially buy a house- Moses needs more room to play and mortgage payments aren't much more than our current rent.

2. Run a road race- I was up to 5 mile runs this fall, but then I injured my leg about six weeks ago. I was having a hard time walking and had to take a lot of pain killers. Luckily it seems to be healing and I'm now able to use the elliptical and bike at the gym, but I'm ready to start running again!

3. Go to another country- direct contradiction to goal #1, but I'm really itching for an international trip and want to get Aaron somewhere other than Mexico.

That is about it… don't want to get too ambitious over here! Happy new year everyone!
