She Spoke too soon


Me Ra spoke too soon yesterday.

This is her Husband, Brian. Last night after posting her blog and after dinner, she went to bed with her whole body hurting. No, not throwing up, but she’s got the same thing as the kids.

This morning, she felt well enough to let me know I was in trouble after the Apes came. I don’t remember what I did, just that Me Ra didn’t feel good any more and she wasn’t up for going to the beach today. So today I thought I’d let her and the kids take a nap, I went to the club house (deck) by the beach to do some work and have internet access. I ran into these two guys.

Just hanging out

If you’ve been to our place, then you might think this guy has the eyes of a guy (J.K.) who moved here from last year from L.A.

JK's eyes

I named this guy Tony.

Tony the RHCP monkey

As the internet went out again, they inspired me to take a couple pictures of Me Ra not feeling well. That’s what I did tonight after dinner.

Sick Me Ra sleeping

Can you see her saying, “Don’t take my picture!”


Oh I think that’s enough now to get me started on wrong foot in the morning.  🙂

Me Ra did ask me to announce that she won’t be releasing the May Seattle Confidence Workshop until Friday. Considering she can’t get herself out of bed, that’s probably not very surprising?

Last, the smallest, but definitely not the least, the kids are feeling a little better today. Yeah!


Well, the internet went out last night before I could post this blog, so I took some more photos of Me Ra laid out sick on the bed. Poor thing…

What angle makes her look the sickest?

Now am I a bad Husband?  🙂

  15. Okay- so Brian I was praying that you wouldn’t suffer the same plight as the rest of your family. After seeing these pics….ah well “PAYBACK” might be lingering just as close as those monkey’s. Now that I think of it… maybe this is Payback? I do recall some scantalist undi-pics MeRa took of you? Hee-Hee ;D Just the same you better watch your back Man! Feel Better MeRa, so sorry your Icky-Sicky, but you do look really cute all sacked-out sporting your new tan.Praying for you still!Love ya Much…

    Brian, I think your shootings are just great.
    I know Mera is feeling bad , but to tell the truth she looks beautiful. You just tell her that her Grandma said so .
    Love to all

  17. Genie says:

    I can’t….even….spe……..ak – Dude! You be in BIG juju trouble mon! So funny/sad! Sad for Me Ra and maybe sad for you soon? 😀 But I’d still rather be sick in paradise than sick at home…as long as I had time to get back to enjoying it.

    Hope everyone is super well soon!

  18. Christen says:

    I like the first picture of Me Ra underneath your portrait of Tony, which just so happens to be the name of my husband… hmm… anyways – great work Brian! Hope she feels good enough to go to the beach tomorrow!!

  19. Suzanne says:

    I hope Me Ra is feeling better soon! She looks great — even when she’s sick!

  20. Wow, I think this is one of the few times I may refrain from saying great photos!… I really hope you ALL feel better soon!

  21. Suzy says:

    Brian, it’s been really nice knowing you – I’m pretty sure she’s gonna kill you for this – or at least get you back big time!!! Now that I can’t wait to see!

  22. Wendy says:

    Hi Brian and Mw Ra,
    Found your blog and LOVE it. Even the gross vomity parts. We along with our kids will be traveling through Asia in May/June and are wondering if you could recommend a great place on Koh Phi Phi to stay. It sounds absolutely wonderful (other than the sick parts). Safe travels and we will pray for all the sickness to be banished and wellness to be returned.

  23. Jane says:

    Got this from Twitter: RT @BobDavis_1: Asking 4 huge prayers 4 @MeRaKoh & her kids. They got diagnosed w/Dengue jungle fever while in Cambodia. Please pray & RT

  24. Gosh, praying for a speedy recovery for you and the kids. So you can resume you adventures in Cambodia.

  25. Dear MeRa, Brian, Pascaline & Blaze –

    Got your email, and have been PRAYING for release and comfort from the Dengue fever. We’ve been twittering EVERYONE, getting on prayer chains, and spreading the word however we can. You are STRONG – the enemy is NOT going to get this warrior! We love you lots!

    Roxanne, Curt, Bevan & April

  27. Lisa Acord says:

    What I want to know is: how does Me Ra still manage to look good when sick? When I’m sick, I look NOTHING like that!

    Hope the family gets well soon and can enjoy your trip before you have to leave. 🙂
