I wanted to let everyone know that tomorrow my family and I are heading out for vacation and will be gone until the 11th or 12th of August.  I'm feeling a little better than I was earlier in the week, but still not feeling great, but I still think the vacation will be good for me.
 
We're heading out to Colorado to spend some time in the mountains.  The cool, dry climate in the moutains always does me good.  I told my husband that even if I didn't feel the greatest out there that I will love to just sit on the deck of the condo drinking tea or coffee and looking out over the mountains.
 
I'll miss everyone here and will be thinking of you.  I've got a busy day full of errands and packing, but I'll check back in at least one more time before we had off tomorrow.

Hippi,

I hope you feel ok today and that you don't overdo it packing and running errands. Have a wonderful, restful vacation with your hubby and kids and enjoy the cool Colorado weather.

You'll be missed!

Love,

Pat

Oh hippi that sounds like just what the doctor ordered. The mountains are so beautiful. Next month I'm going to Branson missouri for about 4 days than heading to arizona for 2 or 3 weeks. I feel like carrying a can of lysol around with me until than so no one gets any germs on me. lOL. You have a wonderful time and take notes we want to hear all about it when you get back!
love ya

Hippi,

Sounds like a relaxing wonderful vacation.  Find someplace to sit and just relax and look at the mountains.  My sister and I went there on vacation years ago and didn't want to leave.  It is soooo beautiful.  What part of Colorado are you going to.  If you feel up to it, go to the Garden of the Gods.  It is a spectular site to see but does require some walking so take it easy.  I hope you have a fantastic and wonderful and relaxing vacation.  I am going on a 4 day weekend (hopefully if physically able to) in October with my parents to a resort here in Missouri and am really looking forward to that.  Just to get away from everyday life for a while will be wonderful for you.  Let us know how wonderful your trip is when you get back.  HAVE A BLAST for all of us here who are envious of you now.  Just joking, just a little jealousy.  (((((((HIPPI)))))

HAVE A GREAT TIME.

Love,

diane (ocean1)

Thank you everyone. I've been going non stop most of the day and am exhausted. I just keep telling myself not to stress about it though because I have almost a week of relaxation with little to no stress and that soon I'll be breathing in the cool mountain air.

Other good news is that my diarrhea seems to have ended and I didn't have a fever yesterday or today, so maybe things are looking up for my health.

I'll think about all of you while I'm gone and I'll catch up with everyone when I get back.

Love,
hippi

Hi Hippi:

I know you're already gone for you vacation in the mountains. I just wanted to send you well wishes and hugs. I hope that your stomach issues have cleared up and that you're able to enjoy your vacation with your family.

Looking forwarding to hearing how your vacation went.
