My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)



My throat hurts like crazy today.. All weekend actually. I've been coughing up a storm, and besides that, I feel great. I'm just ready for this to be done with! At least it's most likely allergies, as I have no stuffy nose or body aches!

I hope everyone had a fantabulous weekend! Mine was nice, albeit way too short. Friday was the game night.. I was feeling quite anti-social, which is not at all like me. So, I basically watched the guys play Street Fighter IV all night.. lol It's a fun game, and normally the girls play board games or Wii while the boys play Street Fighter or another guy type game, but both Michelle and I weren't feeling social at all. Kinda sad, but I guess we all go through phases like that.

Saturday was Avenue Q in Austin.. We had terrible weather in Houston, so we were delayed a bit in getting to Austin. We had dinner at the Iguana Grill on Lake Travis. It was a beautiful view, but the food wasn't that wonderful.. Next time we'll try something else! :-) The show was wonderful though. I laughed my butt off between coughs... it's definitely adult oriented, but wow, hilarious!! LOL

Sunday we slept in a bit because we didn't get back from Austin until 1 am. John and I went to Costco to get his 24 Hour Fitness Membership ($299 for 2 years, only available through the end of April!), and then we went to the gym with Michelle and David. I somehow made it through my 45 minutes on the ellptical, 225 crunches, and stretching.. I didn't get much more done b/c we went to the sauna.. everyone else finished working out before me, but it's probably a good thing I didn't do much more b/c I have a tendency to overdo it!

Today I'm at work wishing I had more sick time, but my February hospital stay and recovery sucked all my sick time up!! I am exhausted and feeling like poo today!!

Sounds like a good productive weekend even inspite of the illness. I hope that you get to feeling better soon - I hate feeling yucky! I've been battling the same thing - but Alavert is my friend!

Sorry you're feeling so terrible! My daughter's allergies are acting up too, so it must be the time of year. Claritin is the one that really works for her and my husband. Feel better!

Sounds like a very busy weekend! I spent what feels like most of my weekend on a plane and recovering from the time difference!

Feel better!
