Trip to Idaho

Savannah has a meet this past weekend in Coeur d'alene Idaho. We packed up the car and left here at 6:30am, on Friday morning, pickup Cydnee at 7am, in Salem, (her parents could not go so I was her mom for the weekend) and picked up Dani and Carrie at 7:15am. Then we hit the road. We only stopped 2 times on the way there (7+ hours) and the girls did great! Loud but great! :)

Friday night the girls swam and ran around checking out the hotel, and to see who else was there (some how I forgot my camera everytime we went to the pool, must of been the wine :) ) Oh and 5 women/teens in one hotel room made for some intresting bathroom issues. Everyone wanted
to be in the shower at once, so this is how we solved it......

On Saturday we drove into Mead, WA to a place called Cat Tales and the girls got a behind the scenes tour and got to feed the cats. It was amazing!

The girls all competed on Sunday at 7:30am (yes, an awful time, ask Cyd, she was so NOT happy about it). Savannah did her backhand spring on the beam for the 1st time during competition, and I am sooooo proud of her. She has been really struggling with this element! Then we went back to the hotel to pack up and hit the road finally about 2pm on Sunday. I pulled into our driveway at 9:30pm, driving 1009.1 miles! WILD TRIP but a blast!!

Manic Monday

Of all your favorite foods, which one would you find the most difficult to give up for the rest of your life? Salads, stange but true. Other things come and go but daily I eat a salad, sometimes as the main course, sometimes as a side dish.

Which month of the year do you thing best describes your personality? June probably. Sunny, warm, fun, relaxing....

If you could be a contestant on any game show, past or present, which show would you pick? Wheel of Fortune, becuase I rock at it. I love to guess the puzzles before anyone else in our house can do it!

5. To me, Valentine's Day means not a lot, we don't celebrate it.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to making Savannah feel better, tomorrow my plans include watching Dominick's basketball game and Sunday, I want to relax and take care of my family!

Poor Savannah

Last night I went to the gym to pick Savannah and the other girls up. When got there, about an hour early to watch practice, she was curled up in a ball on the floor. I went to talk to her, she said her head hurt really bad. She had taken some Advil, but it was not helping. she went to walk into the office area where it would be quieter, and ended up running outside to throw up.

Called our friend Brooke, a nurse, and she recommended at trip to the ER. So off we went, Savannah with her head in a bucket, and in pain. Me driving as fast as I could from Salem to Albany to get her to Dr. Vanashe (seen him a few other times in the ER, and love his way of practicing medicine).

Got her there, still throwing up and in major pain, got her a CT scan, had to wait for medicine until they got the results. It came back normal, so they gave her a shot, but she was still throwing up so they gave her something for that. Finally left there around midnight.

She is home still, no school for her, though she was not happy about that. Hopefully when she wakes up she will feel better.

Dr. wants us to get her in for a check up, and keep an eye on her.

I am exhausted both mentally and emotionally. Along with sleep deprived, as I spent most of the AM worrying, and checking on her.

As I deal with migraines frequently, I feel so sorry for her. Dr thought that she was young to be having one. But she had a emotional day at school (girls are well....girls at this age). Plus she had been burning the candle at both ends for months now between school, gym, friends and babysitting. Glad we dont have a meet this weekend, she can just relax.

If you are inclined please send good thoughts and prayers her way.

I've been tagged.......

Aww the fun little blog games. I like to read what everyone does with these but I have never been tagged before. This time Cali thought of me. You can find her blog HERE.

The rules of the game find the sixth picture in the sixth album on my computer. So here it is....
The title of this folder is "Rascal Flatts 2007" It is a picture of one of my best friends, Amanda, and I just before we headed to the Rose Quarter Arena to see Jason Aldean (opener) and Rascal Flatts. It was my first concert, yes, I know a sheltered childhood, and it was so good!

so I tag..........
