Food Poisoning!

Hey Everyone!

So. Last week. Friday was awful.

My wife was sick and I wasn’t feeling well. That is about where we left it. About 10 minutes after I finished that post, I left work. I stopped at my mom’s house and snagged some Gatorade, per my wife’s request. About 30 minutes after I made it home I got pretty violently ill. My wife and I were in the same boat and couldn’t do anything, other than lay there and try not to die lol. We spoke about how it was no coincidence that we both had the same thing going on at the same time. We determined through process of elimination that we had food poisoning from old bacon! This is the first time bacon has ever let me down in life. Not pleased. 😡

We Started feeling better the next morning for the most part. We were dehydrated and hungry from not being able to keep anything down the day before. We were also scared to eat anything out of fear of getting sick again. We ended up being Ok for the most part. Saturday was spent re cooperating.

Sunday I had two softball games. One at 12:45pm and the other right after at 2:00pm. It started pouring down rain during the first one. It started Thundering during the second one, before clearing up and being humid as all hell. It was a long couple of games but we all played fairly well, and won both games. The only games we have lost this season were the games that I couldn’t attend, so I keep making the joke that I’m the chosen player and that they can’t win without me lol.I’ll use that until we lose. 😀

Since we still hadn’t eaten a real meal since Thursday night, we went out to Olive Garden for dinner. That got us back on track. Work is back on track this morning as well. I’m just glad we are both over everything now.

I hope you all had a great weekend and didn’t have food poisoning. XD Have a great Monday and I’ll be back again tomorrow! 😀 😀

Some Things & Some Stuff

Hey Everyone!

This weekend was very pleasant. Friday was like any other. At work I was able to clean up our messy data closet in our second building. I don’t have any before photos, but it is much better trust me haha.

Saturday we had some snow to shovel off the sidewalks and I ran the snowblower up and down my driveway about an hour. I was able to hit the side walk of my two neighbors too. Not my terrible neighbor but the other two haha. We were going to go as a family to a wedding on my mom’s side of the family, but we had a small indecent. I was getting in some much needed gaming time and my wife was hanging out with Everett down stairs. He has gotten to the age where he can lunge and really play. He can hold himself up while sitting and can stand with help. That being said, he decided it would be a great idea to lunge straight off the couch. He fell flat on his face onto the floor. It sounds pretty terrible, but He just got a bruise and a bloody nose. He was happy shortly after. Here you can see his bruise setting in nicely.

Poor little guy! His mommy was shaken up pretty bad because she was there when it happened. I all I can do is reassure here there is nothing she could have done and that it wasn’t he fault in any way. Hes getting to be a fast, slippery little guy. He is dong just fine today. 😀

So needles to say, I went to the wedding alone. I met my parents there but it was at a fish and game club on a side road. It was pretty messy.

The wedding was a very redneck, laid back wedding. It was my mother’s second cousin, who was getting married. They made most of the food on the buffet line and it was a fun time. I made a plate and brought it home for my wife when I left. When my parents made it out they stopped over and saw Everett for a bit. They don’t see him very often because we take him with us all the time, so we find some time to let them come over and hang out.  The rest of the night was spent watching the terrible football games. I hate watching the Patriots win and hate watching the team that has the best chance of beating them lose all in the same day (Steelers) haha. Now the worst thing that could happen in the NFL right now is if the Patriots and Eagles both win. That would be a super bowl I wouldn’t even watch. The ideal game in my eyes would be the Steelers v. Vikings. Since that can no longer be true the next best game, in my eyes would be the Jags v. Vikings.

Sunday we a relaxing day I played some games, we went and got some pizza for lunch. We just lounged, and snuggled our baby all day. In the evening we watched the last half of the Vikings game, and pretty much just went to bed.

Today I am very busy at work, and I’m glad I could get this post out at all.

That was my weekend. I hope you all had a good one as well. 😀 I’ll see you all tomorrow.

Milestone, Weather, Masons, & Weight!

Hey Everyone!

First Hump Day of the year wooo! Here we are on third day of the new year and, hopefully, feeling good.

I woke up this morning with a bit of a sore throat, which may have something with Everett going back to day care. So not super happy about that, but what are you to do? Oh well! It has gotten better throughout the day so I hope it just goes away haha.

Yesterday I didn’t think I would even post and look at me go! I got two out, surprise haha. I was super swamped at work and still, sort of, am. This is the lull in the eye of the storm in a manner of speaking.

Last night was the first night that we put Everett to bed, with out him coming with us. He is still in our room and in his bassinet but we made the decision to put him upstairs right after his last bottle, and see how it goes. We had the monitor on, and with minimal fussing he went right to sleep. He slept well the rest of the night and I think we have a good thing going with this. I am confident that he can sleep in his own room, but my wife would like to still hold off on that for a bit longer. I’m OK with that decision. So that was a big win for us I think.

This winter weather is hitting our area pretty hard, and right now it is bitter cold. Schools in surrounding areas have been closed due to the low temperatures. In some areas it is reaching -20 F. We make sure to bundle Everett up as best we can, and keep him out of it as much as possible. I however notice that my facial hair freezes up instantly if it is even a tiny bit wet. I can lick my lips and it will freeze right up. I was shoveling the snow off of my sidewalk the other day, wearing big winter gloves, and my fingers were still numb by the end of it. Our water company as issues a warning about pipes freezing. We are supposed to have the water on to at least a drip to prevent it. That last thing we need is busted pipes. I’ll have to get on that when I get home today.

In other news I have our first Masonic meeting of the new year tonight. I am in a new position and have new lines to speak, so I’m a bit nervous. I know I have the lines down, but saying them in your head and out loud to yourself is different then doing it in the meeting haha. It should be OK though, I mean it is the first week after all. I’m not sure what they are serving for dinner but I know it’ll be good.

Speaking of eating, I am back on my regular diet. I gained 13 pounds from eating like a fatty over the span of a month. There really is just no good way to eat well, when you have an overindulging mindset. It is hard the rest of the year to stay healthy but over Christmas and New Years forget it! I’m not mad or even worried about it though because I know I’ll get it back off, but it is crazy to think I just gained that all back haha. I knew I was when my work shirts got a bit tight. Oops! 😀

That is all for now, I hope you all have a great rest of the week, I’ll see you tomorrow! 😀 😀

Snow Blower, Infected PC, & Everett!

Hey Everyone!

This post is a bit late because, reasons. In reality I just got super busy right around lunch time and had to run to our other building to fix a few issues. It took longer than expected and I just got back.

The other day I went and looked at a snowblower. It was bigger than I expected and that was ok. It was in god working order and had very minimal rust. I decided to purchase it. I got it home and the very next day I was excite to fix some of the rust spots, throw on some new skid shoes, and add some oil. You know, just some last minute preparations before I had to put it to use. I tore into it and had in pieces. I sanded some rust and covered it in an awfully ugly teal paint. I took the wheels off to paint the rims where I had sanded off some surface rust, and put them back on. Once I was somewhat satisfied with my now ugly teal/orange monster I put it back together. Everything was just the way I found it, so I thought. It wasn’t until I tested it that I realized that the wheels did not spin when I engaged them. rip. I’m not at a loss and need to find a way to tear into the back panel. Without knowing what is what, I’ll see if my quick internet searches can help me fix the issue simply. I mean it has to be kind of simple right? I mean it was in perfect working order when I brought it home, so it isn’t like it is missing any pieces. If I can’t get it soon I’ll enlist a guy I work with to help me. He does this crap for fun.

A couple other little things while I am here. Everett’s great grandpa Francis got him a quarter collection. That as indeed very thoughtful, but I had to put them all in their proper spots, which was a nightmare. I felt like my thumb was going to snap off from pushing each coin in its spot.

In local nerd news, my PC was infected with a nasty rootkit, that left malware all over it. I wasn’t able to run new executables therefore I couldn’t’ remove the rootkit. It was a vicious cycle. I finally found a way around the rootkit and got rid of it. The bad news was that even though it was now gone it left behind over 70,000 pieces of malware. Don’t believe me? See for yourself.

It is a terrible picture but it proves it all haha.

Our baby as you know is getting over his infection, so he was sitting with me this morning before work watching the news.

I will have to bust into my snowblower again, maybe tonight, and that should be about it for night. We are just sliding into the long holiday weekend!

I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀
