Oh, no. I have a cold. It started yesterday with some coughing, then this morning it was confirmed. The last time I had a cold was just before Christmas. It wasn't really a bad one but it did last 7 or 8 days. I am just praying that Lea doesn't get my cold (she didn't get it last time!) and this thing clears up before our big trip to Florida. We've got boat loads of vitamin C and tons of Clorox wipes & Lysol... so hopefully the odds are good that this nasty cold virus won't get far.

Did I mention Florida before? Lea and I are going to the Keys for two weeks! I can't wait to be in 78 degree weather. I am sick (literally) & tired of winter this year. My parents decided to rent a huge beach house with my aunt & uncle for the month of January. Come February they will move into a smaller beach cottage for the month, so Lea and I are heading down there before they move. :) It should be a great time as my brother & sister-in-law will be there, too.

So, here's a note to this cold...

Dear Cold,

I would appreciate it have to demand that your visit be short. You are not welcome here! Please gather your things (including your runny nose, cough and congestion) and leave as soon as possible. Oh... and another thing, if you even come close to my daughter, you will regret it! (yes, that is a threat)

Thanks for nothing,


  1. I'm sorry but this post made me giggle. You were actually quite nice in your letter; I would have been much nastier :)

    I hope you feel better soon and I am super jealous of your Florida trip. That is going to be awesome!

  2. I'm so jealous (my freezing typing fingers are even more jealous!) but happy for you because I know how tired of Winter you must feel. I'm also so happy that you don't have to worry taking time away from work to go on this trip! It will make it sooo much more relaxing. Please, if you don't mind, catch some sun for me and email it over ASAP!
