Christmas was such a wonderful time but this week back has been a slap in the face. So, I will give the top 5 reasons why this week was so bad. 1. On Sunday we were suppose to take Amtrak home. It was suppose to be so fun and wonderful. One of the trains broke down, so they put us on buses and shipped us home. Jaron had negative leg room, Vienna and I were so car sick, and it was too hot. That was miserable. 2. On Monday I went to the ER thinking I had an appendicitis. I was sent home with no diagnosis, just really sick. 3. On Tuesday, Clark threw up everywhere, twice. After that, I learned how to catch it when it came out. He threw up continually for about 8 hours and then was done. That was MISERABLE. 4. On Wednesday, Vienna was put under and had 4 cavities filled and a root canal. She has a metal cap on her back molar, which she hates. She came out fine but cried the rest of the day. 5. On Friday morning Jaron woke up throwing up and he threw up a ton for about 8 hours and then he felt better. To try to balance out the negative, here are a few positive things that happened. 1. On Tuesday, I cleaned out all my closets and put all of the Christmas presents away. It feels good to be cleaned out. 2. We had a nice evening for Jaron's 30th birthday. We had Applebee's take out. I got us Oriental Chicken Salads (which Jaron will never have again because he threw it up for a couple of hours the next day.) We had cake and opened presents. Jaron got a nice bag for his fishing stuff, an exercise ball, a scale, and a jump rope. It was a good day. 3. On Saturday we put in our garden in our city garden plot. It was wonderful. The drive was short and beautiful. The garden is in the middle of the country, so from our spot you can't see any houses, just rolling green hills (yes, we are entering the green season!) We put in onions, cilantro, carrots, beets, radishes, strawberries, rhubarb, peas, and lettuce. It was so fun to work the soil. The kids loved it and we had a wonderful day. 4. I taught sharing time today and it went really well (minus the girl who wet herself when giving a talk in opening exercises). The new sunbeams did good and it was fun. In conclusion, I am still really sick to my stomach. It has been 1 1/2 weeks, and today has been rough. When Clark and Jaron got sick, I thought I had what they had, but it has been totally different. When I talk to people, they say this bug is going around. But nobody has talked about stomach cramps. So I am going to go see a doctor tomorrow. I just don't feel good. I hope they can give me something because I am done with this. I hope we have a better week and I hope you all have a good week.
Jaron and Joni married in Dec. 2002. Now, almost eight years later we have two beautiful children, Vienna and Clark. After Jaron graduated from BYU in Construction Management, we moved to Gilbert, Arizona and then to Oakland, California where Jaron worked for McCarthy Building Companies. Jaron now works for a steel company in Sandy and we live in Roy, Utah. Joni stays home with the little munchkins and manages storage units. We are loving life!
