    Earaches, coughs, chapped lips, nose monsters

    As I think about Christmas past when I was a kid........someone was always sick on Christmas...my brother or me.
    I think about Christmas past when Kevin was little.......most of those holiday gatherings he on he and either Paul or I were sick.
    And here we are.......Christmas 2019. Kevin, Becca, Jake and Liam are here. All of them missed school and or work this week due to colds.
    They told us yesterday on Face time that yesterday was the first day that they all felt ok.
    Til they arrived here.
    Kevin and Becca both to urgent care tonight and both diagnosed with ear infections and sinus infections.
    The grandkids are pretty good...if one ignores the nose monsters, and the chapped lips.

    So, tomorrow I am going to start taking echinacea and maybe augmenten as a preventative.

    Maybe fireball too.

    Ear infection while flying sounds terrible! Hope everyone is on the mend soon so you can enjoy.
    We had a memorable Christmas in the ER once with my brother. I remember being a pre teen just waiting for that little baby that stole my only child title to get home from ruining my day. Poor kid was really sick and I was a selfish brat...lol.


    P.s. Watch out for that fireball flu the next morning (lol)

    yes, a little. thank you!
    the troops spent the day at Legoland and per the texts that we have received, they are having fun. (even in the rain)
    since they were out of the house today, Paul and I were able to get some laundry done, milk, bread, juice replenished and the vacuum went around 2x.

    Nyquil, Dayquil, Robitussin, advil, flonase and neti pot
    our guest bathroom looks like a pharmacy.
