Ugh, I've been housebound for the last 48 hours or so and going almost nuts. I got this weird flu on Wednesday that forced me to do nothing but to stay in bed. I've never had a flu that made me bed-ridden for so long. I'm so ready to go out and enjoy the beautiful weather we've been having.

The Dude's little bro has been staying with us this past week. We've taken him out to enjoy the great outdoors. My favorite activity was a hike in Squamish Valley, which turned out to be more intense than we anticipated (it involved chains and ropes for climbing). But it offered such amazing views of the valley. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere.

Tonight, we're going to take him out for karaoke. I hope I'm up for it because I absolutely loooove singing karaoke.
