Bronchitis and Guitar Hero

I awoke Friday morning at 5 a.m, to the sound of Bo's coughing, and found that my so-called "head cold" was getting some serious revenge. And when I attempted to tell it where it could go, I found it had already taken care of that problem - I couldn't talk. Actually, I could talk, but I couldn't make any sound come out. Love-ly. So I coughed and hacked and such, trying to regain my voice and get ready to go swim, but I had no such luck. Bo wasn't having any luck either. So, since this stuff has been hanging around over a week now, I made us doctor appointments and we got a diagnosis and some antibiotics. Bo just has a sinus infection, nothing in the chest yet, but I have full-blown bronchitis. Supposedly our "Z" packs are going to take care of this inconvenience in 3 days. I sure hope so.

Last night was the grand opening of the new "Coconut Bay Cafe" here in Manchester - oh boy - and let me tell you, only a tractor pull could have gotten more Manchester residents out of their houses on such a cold night. Not feeling well and having no desire to be crammed up in a bar like a can of sardines with Manchester's Finest, so to speak, we didn't attend the grand opening. I believe H was attending, though, so I'm sure she'll fill me in on the festivities. We did get out, though. We went to Game Stop and played the Nintendo Wii demo, and decided we need one. I've toyed around with the idea of it since Christmas, but with TacBoy recommending it and all, I decided to seriously check it out. So on the way, J.T. and I are in total disagreement. He wants to wait and get that ultra expensive PS3. But I think the Wii would be more fun for the kids (and myself ofcourse). So Briar and I start playing the Zelda demo and J.T. eases over to watch. Then asks to try. Then he hooks a fish, reels it in, turns and asks, "So, uh, are we buying one of these or what?" But sadly, they didn't have any in stock. Niether did Wal-Mart. But Wal-Mart did have Guitar Hero II. Briar's been wanting that for quite a while now, so he decided to cash in his big of stack gift cards he had gotten for his birthday to purchase the wireless guitar and the game. And we played and played. I can even rock a song or two, man!!

NOOOOOO! You can't be sick. Get well quick.
Due to sick kid and car shopping we didn't make the grand opening either. We do have a new car though.

Hope you're feeling better real soon. I think I'm finally healthy again, but things got so bad on Thursday, I could only squeak when I tried to talk (which is tough since I spend most of my day on the phone).
