Listening to: Jack Johnson - Breakdown
It's been a week and I have nothing useful to say.
Last Friday after work we went down to Richfield to visit and pick up the three girls.
I was determined to have patience that whole weekend. And I must say I did good. Evan didn't keep his patience. The girls stole my phone/camera that night and made video after video of nothingness and motion sickness for hours that night. o.O The things kids think of to video once they get a camera in their hand.
Saturday morning we went on a hike up to Bulls Head. I still think the 'head' looks more like a bear, but whatev. Emily came with us. There didn't seem to be a trail...so he juss kinda lead us up the face/back of the mountain there. Then we had to follow the ledge all the way in one direction before we could get up higher and go back the opposite way, so it would make sense to get back to lower ground doing that route vice versa right? After we got higher and saw the Bulls Head he decided juss to ...climb down the mountain kinda like how we got up but minus the very helpful backtracking to safely get to lower ground. That's the only time I kinda lost my patience, but my patience was geared more toward the kids, not the boy. There he was jumping and hopping off semi-cliffs to get to lower ground and simply walk down the mountain leaving me and his little girl behind as if we can make jumps that far. He wouldn't really listen to me or talk to me he'd juss walk looking for a place to jump down. I was kinda frustrated when he was headed straight for another semi-cliff that us girls were not going to make, I told him it was too far, but he kept walking and then determined it was too far. We ended up jumping in what used to be a canal/river and followed that out. Clearly he was lost but he wasn't going to consult with anyone about it. Males. Simply male minds, its juss a lil' mountain, maybe a hill, it can't be that hard...juss climb up it and when yer done climb back down. oy.
Anyways I've never hiked in red dirt up a red mountain before. It was different. Lots of stickies that get in your socks and dried weeds or whatever that attack your bare legs. Lots of dirt and rocks in my shoes and super hot sun down south there. It wasn't that bad, could've been worse. Took awhile to cool down. Then we just laid around for like three hours. The girls fought over the computer while we pretended to sleep on the couch. Then we played games, had dinner, and watched a movie.
Sunday everyone had breakfast twice. We played Monopoly Deal a thousand times waiting for church. Got escorted to church surrounded by little girls. Loved the humor of the ward. Came back to the house and packed up stuff. Ate some dinner and drove home with three screaming girls. What a long trip. But I kept my patience which helped the boy, somewhat. Sure did have a headache though. I got my car from his work and went home in peaceful silence the rest of the way.
Monday I was pooped tired and the boss was gone on a father/son camping trip so I quite literally laid down and slept most of the day. My sinuses were exploding, lots of clouds and threats of rain, thus my head hurting and the compy looked like a blur and then I'd get nauseous with the combination of it all. And this doesn't happen all the time, but my bones also ache when its about to rain or whatever. Sometimes my knees, mostly my wrists and arms. weird. I feel old and slow. I juss felt like I took a drowsy pill and couldn't wake up.
Tuesday morning I felt the same. But this time it actually rained a bit. But by then I was ready to go home and go to bed. So I did. A nap to make the drowsy and hurt go away. The boy wanted to go to a jumping class (exercise) and I...so did not want to with my head hurting.
Wednesday I felt better no threats of rain, no headaches, not so much drowsy anymore. But then after work my stomach starts exploding. upset. I tried to go to the gym. Didnt' work. The last hour of work my shoulder was killing me. I had a huge knot in my shoulder muscles I was dying. Stupid posture. I laid down and watched a movie and waited my stomach pain out. When that calmed down I started cramping. I'm pritti sure this is not my week. I felt gross, I wanted to eat but didn't want troubles, I was in pain, I wanted but didnt want to bleed, I felt like I had a fever, ugh. And Evan tried to accomodate for me but I knew he was thinkin about how much I 'complain'. I went home and took a hot shower and lots of medications ate a little bit and went to bed.
Had the best sleep ever though! My energy back. No pain the next day. But now, today, there is no sign of a period coming. No cramping, no blood, no symptums, no cravings, no bloating (the opposite really) no huge appetite (still dont want to eat much after what seemed like stomach poisioning last night). But I dont think thats a good thing cuz it only has two more days to bleed before I want it back on the pill. Its already two days late...like it usually is. o.O It must bleed! Juss a little for...juss a day at least! I think the stomach issue scared my period away.
In other news its the July 24th holiday weekend and everyone has decided to do the celebrations on Monday the 25th when prolly most ppl have to work. Why not the Sat before? I dont know. So there seems to be nothing to do this week for this holiday. Lame. There is the Days of '47 Rodeo and stuff if you want to track down discount tix. I am not aware of any parade (cept for Mon) or any fun activities around here on Saturday. Sigh. The first weekend I have home for a long time and theres nothing to do.
