lots of packages & sick bugs

My house is starting to get filled with boxes. Two small packages arrived last week and earlier this week that I'll be giving to my dad for his birthday, my new desktop arrived this week, the printer arrived last week as a somewhat cruel joke and then today I got three packages!
FedEx came with my new wheels and, literally like a minute later, UPS showed up with my small box from Cyclocross World with the tires and brake pads. (Last package was from Ex Officio -- they were having a sale and I have come to love their underwear to commute in.)

I'm so excited about the wheels and tires. But, I won't have them for Jackson Park. Julie will be glueing them for me and she is off having fun up north right now.

I'm trying to get Christopher healthy and trying to keep myself healthy. He picked up some type of bug. Diarrhea and then vomiting last night and this morning. I kept him home from preschool today, obviously, and it's been a long day and Tom won't be home until after 6 p.m. today. The doctor's office said they've been getting a lot of calls about kids with similiar symptoms. I'm supposed to give him bland things and no sugar. He's a picky eater and I had no idea how few things we actually had in this house without sugar. I was feeling crappy myself late this morning but am feeling a little better now. At least I don't have his symptoms yet. I'm crossing my fingers that I can stay healthy since the cross season is finally hear (pun intended).

I'll try to get a pic of the wheels and tires up soon. I don't have my new computer hooked up yet so I have to figure out how to get the photos downloaded to my laptop.
