fun and family??

ok so i was really excited about a down day to spend with just the four of us. God had other plans. i awoke around 2:30 AM sick as a dog. i won't go into details, but know i have nothing left in me. i spent the entire night back and forth from my bed, to the toilet, to the bathroom floor.

it is now 5:30 PM and i am still in my darkened hotel room. S was able to get some children's tylenol and three bites of rice into me. apparently there are at least 5 other people in our travel groups with the same illness. at least it wasn't something i ate. and i did say it's not a trip to China unless you get sick.

so it is officially a trip to China.

i haven't any idea of what S has been doing with the children all day. i know he took them to a park, but my camera is still here, so there aren't any photos. when i woke up about 20 minutes ago, i peeked out the window and they are poolside with all our friends. maybe God intended them to have a "Daddy Day" or wanted me to get more than a few hours of rest. i am not sure of the why, but i am thankful i was allowed to rest all day.

i am still not feeling so hot, but at least i have stopped crying about wanting my mother(yes, i was THAT sick)

perhaps tomorrow we will get some shopping done on Shamian Island. we still haven't met the famous Jordan. maybe he will be there this time. i am looking forward to recovery. i'll let you know how it turns out.

fun, family, and fantastic behavior...take two.


  1. I'm here for you. Sorry you were sick. Sometimes it is a way (ok a lousy way) to get you to take the time to rest. Hugs from a very safe distance. Xoxo

  2. Praying for a speedy recovery!

  3. Praying you wake in the morning all better!

  4. Hopefully feeling better!!! So glad things are going better for you (despite sickness)
