What's Jubi Been Up To?

I've had a busy end of August & beginning of September.  So what have I been up to?  Well lets see... *I went to Vegas.  I booked a flight like a week before I went out there (yay for points on Airtran) cause I really needed to get away.  Work has been stressing me out and I want to leave anyway, and I just needed a break.  Yall know that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, so all I'm going to say is that I had a great time.  Had a little bit of drama too, but it didn't ruin the weekend.  And I lost my phone at Rio, which sucked.

*A few days after I got back from Vegas, I went to bed with the beginning of a sore throat & woke up the next morning feeling like I got hit by a Mack truck.  I went to work anyway, and by the end of the day I had chills so bad I was shaking & everyone kept looking at me & saying "You don't look so good"...So I headed to the clinic who then sent me to urgent care because my tonsils were completely swollen shut.  That's right, I had strep throat, and a really bad case of it.  And then to top it off, when I went to pick up my prescription, my car wouldn't start! I'm in the car freaking out because I hadn't renewed my AAA membership (yeah yeah yeah, I know...), and I didnt have anyone's phone number cause I lost my phone in Vegas.  Luckily a very nice man gave me a jump & I was able to make it home, where I took my meds & collapsed.  The next day I got my replacement phone & I went to Sprint to get it activated along with some other stuff, and that's where my car died again.  Got another jump and went to the mechanic...who told me I needed an alternator *sigh* So there went $500 I wasn't planning to spend.  And I didnt get a lick of rest even though I was sick & miserable.

*The next day I had to hop a 7AM flight to Detroit, because my family reunion was that weekend.  My mom was on the planning committee & it was the first one for this part of the family, so it was a big deal & my mom really wanted me to be there.  So I went, even tho I was sick & miserable.  But I did get to see my pumpkin wumpkins, my nieces...I just saw them in July & yet they are bigger & have more teeth.  And I found out that my brother & sister-in-law are having a boy!  So I will have a nephew in November, yay!  Anyway, the family reunion was good & the antiobiotics & steroids (to bring down the swelling in my tonsils) had me feeling a lot better.  I saw some family I hadn't seen in a long time and met some new family as well.  It was a very nice reunion & I'm looking forward to next year's in Chicago.

*I got back to Mpls on Sunday, so I had Monday to rest & recuperate, which I really needed.  The week was uneventful until Friday, when my friend AS came to visit.  We've been friends for a long time, 5 years, but recently we've been talking about becoming more than friends.  I'm so glad he came to visit, we had a great time.  I showed him a lot of the Twin Cities, we hit some events, watched a lot of football, and had some great food.  But the best part was the company.  We have a lot in common, we have a good time together & he's a great guy.  Since he doesn't live here, we're taking it slow...but so far I think he's awesome.  Even if it doesnt work out romantically between us, he's a great friend & I know our friendship will continue.

So now I'm back to my regular life...no more travel or visitors scheduled, and now healthy *knocks on wood* I've had enough excitement for a while.

What have you guys been up to?  Anything exciting going on?  Let me know!
