Head um up, Move um out!

I have no idea if that's the actual saying, or if it's, "Headin' up, movin' out," or something like that. Anyhow, we're getting ready to move again! Monday is my last day of work in Charlotte - woo hoo! Then we'll be moving out of our apartment later in the week. I'm excited about living somewhere different for the summer (NJ - the garden state), but I'm not excited about the actual "moving" part. It's just a pain in the rear, but good excercise I must say. We haven't found a place to live yet, so if anyone knows people that live near Somerset, NJ, and would be willing (and have the space) to host a couple for the summer, let me know! The other option is to live in a hotel. I don't think it would be awful, but eating out for at least one meal a day would probably get old very fast.

Somerset isn't too far away from New York City, so if anyone wants to take a trip this summer and come see us we'd have lots of fun things to do!

Cured by Coke

Brian finally stopped hiccupping after drinking a coke! Hallelujah!

So there's a tip for any of you that get chronic hiccups . . . drink something carbonated. However, I read on the internet that soda can cause hiccups. I guess if you already have them, it has the reverse effect?

Chronic Hiccups

Today has been very out of the ordinary for Brian. He has had the hiccups ALL DAY! It reminds me of that girl on the news a few weeks ago who had the hiccups for something like 51 days straight!! I think she said she finally got rid of them through a combination of going to the chiropractor and something else.

Brian says he thinks he's only had the hiccpus 6 or 7 times in his whole life, and yet today he cannot get rid of them. The only way he's gotten them to stop temporarily is if he puts a teaspoon of sugar under his tongue and lets it dissolve. But they come back after a few minutes. He says they start back when he sneezes or clears his throat. That's just really weird to me. Holding his breath hasn't helped at all either.

Bless his heart, he is so frustrated! Everything he tried to do today was difficult. When we were in church he said he was so embarrassed because he was shaking the pew with every hiccup! He called them "violent." Anyway, if anyone has any suggestions or knows of a sure-fire way to get rid of hiccups, please let us know! I'm hoping we will both be able to get some sleep tonight!
