Helping each other keep on track with the goals we've set for ourselves.

We're supposed to be in Whistler, B.C. enjoying a winter wonderland. I rented skis and have prepaid lift tickets. So why am I sleeping and lounging on the sofa? Because somehow, I've managed to get the flu. And I've likely passed it on to the rest of the household. Michael is feeling achy and has a cough. Timothy has a sore throat. And Christopher is just a toddler who has a perpetual runny nose and an occasionally cough.

Don't get me wrong, I'd much rather be sick here than at home trying to manage taking kids to school and missing work, but it sucks to be sick on vacation, and I seem to often be sick on vacation. Plus, is just sucks to be sick all the time.

Thanks for listening to me rant. I've finally bored Christopher to sleep, and I can go to sleep.

I'm sorry to hear you are sick on your vacation. In our town there is flu, strep, and some sort of lingering upper respiratory something going around. As of this morning 4 out of 5 of the people at my house are now on antibiotics. Hope you start feeling better and get to enjoy your vacation some.

You do seem to get hit on vacation a lot. But at least you are seeing the (somewhat) bright side about being able to stay home and be sick. John claims he gets sick on vacation because when he slows down, the germs can catch up with him.

With luck, I'll go skiing tomorrow before we have to leave on Friday. :)

I think I always get sick on vacation because of all the stress of getting out of town.
