Well, I’m back.

Well, I’m back from vacation! What was supposed to be a weekend trip to see my sister’s play turned into a week and a half slow meandering vacation to see a ton of different people. We did get to Wisconsin in time to see my sister’s play, which was good, and we also saw the epic last GBS concert in the US of their recent tour, and then we spent almost a whole week with my friend Shelly. When we left Wisconsin, we went to Chicago and celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with the large population of Irish immigrants and the green Chicago river. We spent Sunday at the Brookfield Zoo and on Monday headed to Indiana to see a couple more friends. We spent the night there and finally got to Tennessee on Tuesday. It’s good to be home and it’s good to see all the kids.

While we were in Wisconsin, my sister’s both had the flu. I went this long without getting it so I was hoping that I had managed to not catch it, but no. That was, of course, not the case. After spending the morning outside pampering the pups (brushing them, cleaning their teeth, etc), I got sick and was hit really hard with the bug. I was just tired and achy and fell asleep in bed with tons of blankets because I was so cold. I’m feeling slightly better but still sick. And icky feeling.

Now I’m eating pizza bagels that my Ash made me and watching some really bad sci-fi movie. I can’t wait to go back to bed.
