Under The Weather, Planning & More Guns

Posted by on July 10, 2014

Monday morning Michael started complaining that his stomach wasn’t feeling right.  By Monday evening my stomach followed suit.  We both slept horribly Monday night and by the time we woke up Tuesday morning I was miserable but Michael seemed to be feeling a bit better.  Not sure what the problem was…if we ate something that didn’t agree with us or if we picked up some type of flu or virus.  No nausea or vomiting but gas, bloating, headache, and just an overall feeling of YUCK.  I pretty much stayed in bed all day on Tuesday…although I did get up a few times but that only lasted an hour or so each time and then I was right back in bed.  I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to sleep that night but I had no problem.

By Wednesday morning we were both feeling markedly better but still no 100%.  My stomach was feeling much better but my body ached all over.  We spent the day lying low and let our bodies mend.

Yummy, yum, yum

Yummy, yum, yum

I was productive in a few ways today though!  First, I was able to make/confirm plans to visit our friends Skip & Denise Wilson to visit them in southern Michigan while we are in Elkhart, Indiana at the end of this month.  It’s been almost 3 years since we saw them so it will be nice to have a weekend with them to catch up.

With that plan in solidified we decided that when we leave Denise and Skip’s we’d drive as far as Great Lakes Naval Base and stay at the RV park on base.  That will give us a chance to use the commissary and stock up on groceries.  I made reservations for 2 nights so we’re now good to go.

I was also feeling well enough to cook dinner.  I didn’t make anything special…not feeling THAT good yet…but I did whip together some Taco Dip and had it ready when the Utah Barnett’s got home from work/school(daycare).  Michael ate before he left for his class.  The kids are usually ravenous when they get home from school so I thought it best to have food ready when they got home.

Michael went to the Utah Concealed Carry Permit class this evening from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm at Get Some Guns & Ammo.  He needed to take a pistol, a revolver and 15 rounds of ammunition for each.  He borrowed a pistol from Zack and was able to rent the revolver from the place for $5.00.

Michael felt that most of the information provided during the class was common sense.  Unfortunately, he did find out that in order to get the Utah Concealed Carry permit he has to have a permit from our state of residence, South Dakota, which he does not have.  In order to get a South Dakota permit he has to be in South Dakota for 30 days.  Guess we’ll be making a trip to South Dakota next year!




We want to hear from you...whatcha got to say??
