This Summer Blows!

We have gotten off to a rip roaring start over here.
Went to Utah for the 4th of July and got in a car accident.
On the 4th of July weekend.
It is cursed...we should never leave town again for it.

Had to rent a car and leave ours up there. It was not driveable.
Who knows how long we will be without it.
And then, we'll have to drive back up to Utah to retrieve it. rrrgggggggggggg.

The other thing we brought home from Utah that we didn't want...
the plague!
Nathan spent nearly a week in bed, sick with croup like symptoms.
Then Samantha got it...BAD. She required a quick care trip.
I got sick about the same time she did.
Then Kristen kicked in on our heals.
Everyone is on the mend...except me.
I finally went to the dr. yesterday and I have flippin bronchitis.
I feel like garbage.

So here's to week TWO of not being able to do anything,
kids bored outta there minds! Although they are welcome to play at ANYONE elses house, so feel free to call ;)

Me spending so much time down has allowed me to edit lots of photos and be on the computer...a lot. But i'm not sure anyone else is out there these days.

Come on people...BLOG already, so I have stuff to read!

I'm sure Jack or Doug (probably Doug) will end up sick any day now....I better not plan on buying any more groceries this month...medicine and drs. have sucked our budget dry!

Why don't I leave with some more happy memories of our trip...we spent a day out at Sundance while Doug biked, the kids and I hiked around with some good friends.

here's to bed sores and nasty medicine!
Hope your summer is going much better than ours!!!!

So that explains the mini van I gave your husband a hard time about! Well sounds like the 4th was a rip.... I was going to come to swim group and hang out tomorrow but if you're all sick and stuff......

That stinks! Being sick in the summer is the worst. :(

I love your storyboard! Did you use a template or make it on your own? I'm hoping to get some time tonight to sit down and make a storyboard from our trip to the beach last week. They always take me so long to do that I'm kind of dreading it.

Hey Meaghan...i bought the story board from designer digitals (it's an Ali Edwards one).

and Chandra...come swim. I'm not cancelling and have been on antibiotics all week now so I'm not contagious and hoping I'll be feeling much improved come tomorrow.

I made a storyboard last night using the clipping mask freebie from Jessica Sprague and i CAN NOT believe how easy it was. It's super basic and not very creative but at least I know how to do it now. I'm so excited! I put it up on my blog if you want to take a look at it. I'm doing my part to keep you busy. :)

Carol, I am so glad that no one got really hurt in your accident. So sorry about the car and the illness. Get better soon!
