Life's a Bitch...Really, She Is!

Well, Jackie has come and gone.  Geesh that went fast.  The boys had a great time having Jackie in town and going to visit her at the hotel. They got in some swimming and plenty of play time. 

Robby and I went to Wendover on Thursday night and had a nice time playing some tables, having drinks and watching the Jazz game. The dealers were awesome and we had an especially fun time hanging out at the Pai Gow poker table. Such a crazy game...so much pushing. No kidding, we sat at that table for 2 hours on something like $50.  Good times.

And of course it wouldn't be proper to have vacation time without illness. I'm almost starting to dread vacation time...how has this happened to me? Two days into our time off Robby came down with what seemed like death on Friday night and all through Saturday. On Sunday he went to instacare and it was official...strep throat. He got a shot of penicillin and a prescription for antibiotics and we were on our way to get him a milkshake when Jackie called.  Yep, the awful truth...Jackie was sick too!  Good grief.  We ushered her off to instacare right away just knowing the verdict.  The Morehead family was droppin' like flies. It pays to be a Celic!  :) Strep throat lurking in your bed puts the fear of God in you, I tell ya! I thought I would get it just from worrying I would get it. Self fulfilling prophecy and all. So far I have dogged that bullet, but I'm not holding my breath.

Sooo, yeah. We had fun while we could and the time off was by no means a total loss, just not how I planned it in my little pea-brain that thinks things will go the way I plan. I'm a bit slow to shift my outlook when things don't go as planned, but I'm learning to say 'this sucks ass and now I need to readjust my expectations.' It's definitely one of my life lessons. Readjust baby, readjust.

Pai Gow is my fav game for that whole "push" thing. I'm a wuss when it comes to gambling so it's a way to keep my heart rate normal.

Strep Throat! Ugh - that sucks! Hope he gets feeling better soon instead of having it linger. Maybe May will be his month since we've all seemed to be taking a turn at a month.

That's a bummer that Robby and his mom both got sick and it put a kink in your time off. Be strong and don't get sick, Celic! I hope the boys stay healthy, too.

That means no smoochin' the sickie. Face masks may even be in order...OH the boys would love them!

Sending healthy vibes your way.

I knew it was strep! Poor, poor Robby.

It seems as though you NEVER get sick when you vacation in Chicago.....

Regina said...

Ah, ha Cara! You crack me up. It's true, I'm not usually sick in Chicago...it must be karma...I catch a break on the illness when in Chicago because I'm usually there for a FUNERAL! See this is what I mean by Life's a Bitch! :)

When you figure out how to readjust your expectations, let me know. I could apply your tips to my own life!

Sorry to hear that Robby and Jackie were sick - but glad to hear that there were some fun days during Jackie's visit.

I'm so of the "needing to readjust" camp!! Nothing ever goes as planned for us! Sorry that Robby is so sick! How are the boys? Did they dodge the bullet too?!?!

Robby said...

Luckily no one else has come down with the infection. And I just completed my course of antiobiotics, so we may be in the clear. It's a minor miracle!

I bet if you actually LIVED in Chicago, you would never EVER get sick, none of you.
