What a drag....

I am in beautiful Florida. I have the worst cold I have had in years. Instead of helping my folks with household chores, and helping with Dad - taking him out and relieving mom of some daily burdens - I am settled in bed, coughing and sneezing, and generally miserable. I may just have to have boil-in-bag turkey on Thursday with cold medicine. Oh well, I guess I'm thankful that I'm not in the snowy area on top of it all.

Hope you´ll feel better soon. You know what? I got sick once when I visited my mom and actually I felt wonderful lying in bed an ymy mom taking care of me, bringen me tea the whole day, taking care of my little ones and letting me rest and sleep for two days. I really needed that and really enjoyed that. :)

BTW: Aren´t the boil in bag turkeys great too? I had a turkey once in Detroit. It wasn´t Thanks-Giving and it was from a bag. But Boy, that was delicious.

That is a total drag to be away from home and be sick ... even if it is at your parent's house. I hope you feel better soon. Take lots of vitamin C.

It is a bit of a luxury to have mom tucking me in but poor mom has too much to do as it is so I don't want to add to it, but she enjoys taking care of her "baby" so I let her. She is also stuffing me full of vitamin C and Jewish penicillin (aka - chicken soup) so I'm sure I'll be fit as a fiddle soon.

moms love having their 'babies' back to coddle, and who else would eat that delicious chicken soup. sending you loads more of it from freezing london and from one sickie to another...keep warm and cheery, and enjoy mom's love and attention.
