Kelli had a very fun Halloween party last Saturday. We searched for pumpkins in the yard and then carved them. I found the illustrious white pumpkin and received a stellar prize. Because my pumpkin was white, I decided to carve it into Strong Sad. It was awesome. I should probably take a picture. Matt carved a bear holding a shark. Kelli is pretty much awesome at throwing parties.

(Normally, I would insert a picture here, but blogger hates me)

We also played Guitar Hero and DDR. Unfortunately, I have discovered that Erin is not only better at Guitar Hero than me, but she can also waste me at DDR. Curse her and her superiority!

Rachel and Tim showed up near the end of the party and they looked hilarious. Tim was some old man basketball player and Rachel was a ref. Ever the life of the party, they were very entertaining. (insert pic of Rach and Tim, curse you blogger!) It was good to see them again. There is a rumor that they will be moving back to Utah. *crosses fingers*

The party was a lot of fun and a good way to celebrate Halloween. Kelli did a really good job even though she had to live up to Becky and Natalie Halloween parties of years past. For the actual Halloween this year, Matt and I will be very boring. We are going to stay at home and give candy to trick-or-treaters. I have never actually done this before. Usually, I skip that bit and go and play on Halloween. But, this year we have a house and stuff and Halloween is on a week night. We will probably just watch a scary movie or play a lot of Zelda. I love my Wii.

Take a Chance on Me

So, I've got the "Take a Chance on Me" song stuck in my head this morning. If any of you watched The Office last week, you will understand why. The sad part is that I don't even know all of the words, so the chorus just keeps replaying in my mind. Stupid Andy

I am feeling much better this week than I did last week. I'm still nausiated and sick, but I'm less sick and I call that improvement. Being sick for a month is definitely not the funnest thing ever. I think that the funnest thing ever was probably sky diving. But, I don't think I should be sky diving whilst sick.

So, Matt had a Birthday last week. It was uneventful, just how he likes it, but the conclusion is the same and he is now 29! Yay for him. He is only one year away from 30 and oldom. Though Matt is like 5 years older than me and stuff, I still think of him as my age. Mostly because I'm married to him and I'm my age, so I feel like he is too. Strangely, DJ (Matt's brother) who is actually my age, I feel like he is much younger. But, I blame this mostly on Dj's silliness.

Additionally, I am happy to say that I am cured of my small dog syndrome. For over a year now I have been wanting a small dog for a pet. A month ago, right when I was starting to get sick, Matt and I got a small terrier dog. We had her for one week and I was really really sick and we were always going to the hospital and such so we gave back the dog to the shelter where we got her. But, in that weeks time, I realized how annoying and not fun a puppy is. They are nothing but trouble and work and really really smelly. I have no desire to get a small dog any longer. In fact, I have no desire to get a dog at all. I think that Matt and I will just not be pet people. Pets are a lot of work. If we ever do get a dog, it will be an old/pre-trained dog that does not mess on our brand new carpet.

So, so, so very Sick

I have been so very sick for 14 days now. It started with nausea and the regular not feel goods and it has escalated to lots and lots of pain and not goodness. I've been to four doctors, three emergency room visits, one camera down my throat procedure and had lots and lots of prescriptions given to me and they still do not know what is wrong. I've missed almost two weeks of work, for which I am not being paid and that is really sucky.

Sorry I haven't blogged, but until I figure out what is wrong with me, I probably won't blog again. I'm headed back to my "specialist" doctor today and hopefully, there will be more useless speculations done. The doctors keep saying that it may be the gallbladder, even though all the tests done come back negative for the gallbladder. I have no idea what will happen, I am just so very tired of being sick.
