I was starting to think I had super human immunity. Everyone around me is getting sick, and I see on FB that a lot of people are talking about being sick, all the while I was in good health.

But the last couple of days I've been so tired and have a really scratchy throat. I've been drinking up the vitamin C since the second I felt a tickle in my throat, so hopefully it won't progress into anything worse. I still feel like I have super human ability to stay healthy while everyone else is sniffling and sneezing and aching. As long as I think it, I can make it happen, right?

Well, I had a fabulous birthday weekend. Got some great gifts that I didn't deserve once again. Had some visitors, which I LOVE. And got to relax with my hubs and the wee one while the older two were away.

Friday night, Andreas took me to one of my favorite restaurants, WF Maxwell's in West Fargo (formerly Littlefields). I love that place because when we were dating, he took me there and I was so overwhelmed by the prices that I just ordered a side salad. I look back on that now and think how stupid I must have looked! But despite that pricey menu, it's very much worth it. They reeeeeallly know how to cook and the presentation is always so beautiful. It makes me feel like an Iron Chef judge.

Then, the Jeffrex's were in town Saturday and we showed them the Kinect. We were bowling, boxing, river rafting, playing volleyball, boxing, racing cars, doing track & was so fun. Andreas got me a fitness game for my b-day and it is unbelievable. I think I could literally do it for hours without tiring of it. It tracks everything. First it measures you (limbs and all) and based on that information and your weight, it tracks you calorie burn. I'm assuming that's gotta be pretty accurate. You know, the treadmill tracks calories too but I'm pretty sure it's based on an "average" weighted person (whatever that is) so it isn't very accurate. Anyway, it's very cool.

On a little side note, if anyone is wondering who the heck the Jeffrex's are, I'll fill you in. Jeff is my brother. Full name; Jeffrey. One time, at his house, we were looking through one of his old childhood books and found a page in the back where he wrote his name. The Y at the end of Jeffrey looked more like an X....hence, Jeffrex was born. But it's ok, I've had more nicknames concocted by my brothers than I can count. At one time we were CB, DB & GB (or Ceebs, Deebs and Geebs), then there was C-weed, Chuck, Chuckles, Chucky, Chu, Chubaka, Mooseface, Sawit...the list could go on forever. Not sure I can remember the last time I was called by my real name. Ah, a person with many nicknames is very much loved though, isn't that how it goes?

I like to think so.
