Things that suck....
...I've had GI issues since the climb. At first, I assumed it was due to the extreme dehydration and nutrition issues you face when you're on a mountain. Then...
...My two year old got the stomach flu. She puked for three days this week. Now, no more puking, but bring on the diarrhea. At least she is more mobile and more herself though!
|Mommy's lap makes everything better.|
|One of Ginger's favorite things - sleeping under the blankets.|
- I climbed Mt. Rainier. The monkey is off my back. Not only did I climb it, but I climbed it when the route was the toughest it has been in years (according to my Dad and the guides).
|Me. In the "Chutes and Ladders" section of the ascent. In the dark.|
- I have some amazing friends. My running wife is organizing a celebration dinner for me (for the climb), and two other fantastic friends assembled a care package for me when my kiddo was so sick. I could give many other examples as to how I am lucky in this regard, but that would take a long time.
I'm looking forward to catching up on all of your blogs and reliving the climb through my write-up! Hope everyone has had an absolutely fantastic weekend!
