Ok, so, I lived through it. But this is by far one of the worst illnesses I've had in a LONG time. I talked to the doc on Sunday, and she said as long as I wasn't coughing up stuff it was viral. But I have such a new sympathy for Zachary, do you know how frustrating it is to cough and cough and cough and NOTHING happens?


So, in the midst of that, before it hit full strength, we went to see the Portland Pirates Saturday night. Michael earned a ticket as a student achiever, and so we decided to take the whole family. We had a pretty good time, and he came home with a T-shirt, and I got some cute video!!

Not that I can post it, because it stresses blogger out. Going to have to look into that. Any of you blog proficianados out there want to enlighten me, I would sure appreciate it. As would my laundry situation!!

But, in the pictures you can see that we got 24th row, which is the highest row there is. As I complained to Bill, he replied, "You picked 'em!" And I retorted, "I most CERTAINLY did NOT!" The computer picked for me, had I known I might've said NO!! But, it saved us money, I refused to go down the stairs for snacks!!

The Pirates won, 5 to 4, less than one minute into over time. They tied the game with one or two minutes to go, so it was all very exciting.

I left disillusioned, though. We had been promised free fries to everyone if the Pirates scored 5 or more goals. When the game ended, and they did indeed hit 5, they announced to bring your ticket stub to a McDonald's in Portland the next day for your free fries. So much for that!

But we had a blast, and that's what matters!

Sounds like fun! I actually really like watching hockey. Glad you're feeling better. I always try to think, it could have been worse, but I'm not sure that applies in your situation. . .
