It NEVER Fails...

We look forward to a vacation, planning, packing, all the anticipation leading up to it, and what happens...someone gets sick just before we leave! This time, it's Nalley and I both. I know it's bronchitis, I've had it so many times, I know the FIRST signs. If left untreated, I usually have to go on steroids because my asthma flares up every time.

I can deal with it myself, but as every mom knows, it is almost more than I can handle to see my sweet little baby so congested and coughing. She's all sneezy too...poor thing! We both have appointments with the Dr. this afternoon. We leave in 3 days for Maui for 12 days. It's a 9 hour flight and with no illness, it would be tough on a 9 month old. We're praying for health and good humor for the trip.

I'm so stinkin' excited to get away from the coldest place on earth, Winnipeg, Manitoba. It has been SUCH a transition to go from warm Marietta, GA where the flowers are already blooming, to the harsh winters (that last FOREVER) of Canada. It's been 3.5 years already, and I don't think I'll ever adjust. This is the worst part of the year in my opinion, the snow has been on the ground for MONTHS and it doesn't seem like it will ever go away. Actually, it IS melting right now, which gives way to other annoying Winnipeg occurances...pot holes, and slush. The slush is so gross and messy and the potholes wreck your vehicle. We washed our truck on Saturday and you'd never know it today. Anyway, that's life in the Canadian Praires. Such a huge departure from the life I knew. If I didn't love my sweet husband so much....
