Sick Day

I'm home sick today and I'm not thrilled about it. I hate being sick, first of all, and, secondly, while I don't always hate missing work, I do hate missing money, especially right before the Holidays. I've caught a chest cold and it is on the way out, but I always make the mistake of feeling a little bit better and then I jump up and get bustling and it comes back even harder and keeps me down longer. So I am coddling myself a little bit, but I know it's for the best. Thank heaven for medication...and resting....and my family, who take good care of me.

Today, Shaylie is on a field trip to Beauty and the Beast at Snow Canyon High School. I know Shay will love it, she really enjoys things like this. I wanted to go as a chaperone, but I was told that I couldn't go because there wasn't enough room. It's okay though cuz I'm sick.

Taylor had a rare soccer free week...no tryouts or games or practices. She does have her Season End Party tonight though. They'll get their trophies for being League Champs--three in a row--JJ has nothing on my girl! There is another Northern tryout in Orem this weekend but I think we might just wait for the next St. George meet. That will give her 3 and the ODP recommended two, we'll see.

Scott had a fun time in Las Vegas over the weekend. His train club is now a chapter of the National Model Railroad Association. He and James and Jim Harper went down to a Club meeting and Clinic on Saturday. He said it was so fun to be around people who get genuinely excited about trains. I know what that's like because I live with someone like that! He is hard at work on his latest project. Hopefully, he will post pictures. Shaylie's been helping him paint and they've been having a good time.

I just realized that most of this stuff is more appropriate for our TechFamily blog, that's more like the Large Plates of Jesienouski....more day to day stuff. This blog is for more Small Plates stuff. But sometimes I forget where I am. Not in an OldTimers way, just in an I Have Too Many Blogs way. Anyway...it's been kind of quiet on the Blog Front these days, so I just wanted to post an update. I think my meds are kicking in, as you can tell from my rambling....so I'm off to take a nap.

My Father was a HUGE model railroader, An entire room at my brother's house is filled with HO scale things, most of it was Dad's. He built all of this things from scratch(we are not that talented), as for me, I decided to do the real thing and work on what we like to call one big model railroad...The Grand Canyon Railway.
