This quote on my #VeronicaMars dottery mug makes me happy every time I read it, both the words and the way I painted it.

I’ve been drinking gallons of it, thanks to this cold. My whole family has had this cold. Troy, Annalie and Elliora were pretty much over it in three or four days. In me, the same cold morphed into a sinus infection and bacterial conjunctivitis.


me, Heather & Brenda
me, CC, and Brenda, taken by my mom Oct 2008

I’m on drugs for both now, so fingers crossed I’m feeling better soon. Meanwhile, today I’m missing my chance to see CC before she flies home to Northern California, and I’m actually pretty bummed about it. The last time I saw her was at Brenda’s 40th birthday extravaganza, two summers ago. We were planning to meet up when Jen and I passed through their town on our way to or from LeakyCon last June, but that didn’t work out either.


So here I am at home with two kids who are definitely feeling better, while I hack and cough my way fuzzily through the day. I guess this is one of those days when I just keep throwing one-step-from-junk food at them and thank goodness we live in the era of DVDs and are well-stocked with children’s shows and movies. And, of course, keep guzzling peppermint tea with honey.

    Aha, you were at LeakyCon! I knew saw you there! I wanted to say hi and introduce myself but you literally ran away! I figured you were in a hurry to get somewhere, and I hoped to see you again but I didn’t.

    I hope you feel better soon, I’ve had a cold the past couple weeks too and I’m ready for it to be done.

    I was bummed not to be able to see you too. I know we will see each other agin eventually, but it has definitely been too, too long.

    At least we have the internet.

    I hope you are all feeling better,
