Monday was probably the worst day of my life so far! I was feeling great on Sunday...but when 3:30am rolled around, I woke up sick to my stomach. Over the next 3 hours I threw up about 10 or 11 times and took two baths. I finally asked James to take me to the emergency room because I could not stop throwing up. I arrived with my bucket in hand and they took me right in. I got an IV and a few doses of nausea medication at the hospital and they told me that I had some kind of intestinal virus. A couple hours later, I went home with some nausea medicine, glad that I would stop throwing up. Not really the case. The rest of the day was awful and I continued to have horrible stomach pain and throw up until 6pm. I was finally able to eat Jell-O on Tuesday afternoon and an "Uncrustable" sandwich for dinner. I stayed home from work on Tuesday as well because I still felt like a zombie, but I finally feel great! It is illnesses like these (although this is the worst I've ever had it) that make me grateful to be healthy! And now the weather is so nice and I feel good...I feel like a new person! Sorry this may have been gross to read. At least you weren't James! I feel so bad to have put him through that, but so lucky to have him take care of me all day on Monday and for my mom having her suitcase packed, flights checked, and a ride arrainged from the airport, to come out early Tuesday morning if I wasn't going to stop being sick. I wouldn't have let her come, but it is nice to know how much she cared! I am one lucky girl (well except on Monday & Tuesday). And hey, I lost 6 pounds...don't recommend it though.

I know almost the end of February, but I don't really have much to post, so I thought I'd post some pictures from Valentine's Day. We decided not to go out to dinner on Valentine's because of the long waits, so we went to lunch at Costa Vida and then had "noodles" (if you're a Rees you know what noodles are) for dinner instead. We had a nice day. James brought flowers home for me and got me my favorite perfume. I bought James some Nike sweatpants and made him a card. As you can see, I am slightly more excited about my gifts than James is. Enjoy the pictures :)

Let's just say James was pretty excited to get a new computer. When our old computer died without much of a warning, James got pretty tired of using my year 2000 laptop. Okay, so I know one of the hinges is broken and the screen has to be propped up on something so that you can use it, the cord absolutely cannot be touched or it turns off instantly, and you can't see much of any internet page.... I still have a hard time when my first computer gets laughed at.
I found out that James and I care about slightly different things in regards to computers. He cares about how much disk space, memory, graphics cards, etc. I care about whether it's cute or not. I was excited about getting a new computer so we'd have a cool new flat screen monitor, keyboard, maybe a slim tower. Well, I didn't realize James was just getting the "computer" and not the whole package. I asked him what it was going to look like and he didn't even know! What no picture! Kind of disappointing to me. James did say we could get a new monitor soon though....so it can be more "cute" for me.
When the new computer didn't arrive on it's "estimated arrival date" I was worried James wasn't going to sleep at night. It finally arrived and the new computer has been great, I must admit. I'm pretty excited to get started on my new personal history project and James is excited to play Warcraft and enter in our receipts.
Although it must have been a hassle for the Rees' to have to pack up their whole house (food, kids, toys, etc) just to come over for the Super Bowl, it was great to have them come to our apartment! We had a great time with some yummy food (buffalo wings, lil smokies, 7-layer dip, pizza rolls, veggies & dip, chips, sandwiches, scones, and orange julius'). All in all a good time!
Once I got the flash to work, you could actually see people in my pictures! I guess I should look at the picture viewer before I take 20 of just the T.V. showing up! Oops!
