I feel icky today

The beginning of the week, I was in Dallas for three days at a leadership conference for TPC. While it was fun seeing all my old friends from all over the country, and being there for the new products and announcements, which is always a blast, I came home yesterday with a really sore throat. I went to Austin Regional Clinic today and my doctor asked me who I've been around that was sick. I told her about my conference. Bingo! That was the source of my germs. She told me I'm really contagious right not, so that's no fun. I'll be in exile in my own house. She said to drink a lot of liquids and sleep a lot, which is all I feel like doing anyway, with the exception of doing a little blog stalking. My viral infection will run its course and in the meantime, my throat is killing me. It's a bummer to have to pay $25 for a copayment to have your doc tell you there's nothing she can do for you. Oh well. It was worth it, just in case it could have been cured with antibiotics.

Kelly, I'm so sorry to hear your news! Take it easy...it's perfect weather to stay indoors and watch movies! Feel better soon. :)

Man it is for sure sick season. Ben and I had that last week and although we feel much better it is still lingering. Everyone in my family has had it for about a month! Hopefully yours will not last that long. Feel better!
Bummer. Get better. Are you gonna be at church tomorrow? Haven't seen you forever. Take it easy and call me if you want me to run you over something. I'll be running errands tonight now that we're back in town. I can swing by ;-)

We have all had it here, and re-passed it back and forth. It's a bad one, and I agree, sleep is the only recourse. I'm glad you are still up for blog indulging. I did get a lot of reading done. Take care, and get well quickly.

Thanks, everyone. Bobbi's comment has me worried that we'll pass this one around back and forth! I hope not. I've been staying away from everyone, hoping to not get them sick. I miss my husband too--I've been sleeping in my bed alone and am freezing because he's my heater usually. I'm feeling better today, thank goodness.

I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling well. :( I hope you get better soon! There's never a good time to get sick but at least it's really nasty outside so you're not missing anything!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
