Out from under my rock

One by one we have fallen. First Emily. Then John. Then me. Last night, Hope. We just weren't strong enough to battle this one. The stomach flu won.

And in fact, there still seems to be some sort of minor battle going on. Mainly in colons and what not.

Happily it seems we'll all be well enough by Christmas Day and you can bet none of us will be putting on the typical Christmas poundage.

I'm better now. The kitchen and other house surfaces are disinfected and life, and baking, goes on.

Rose, my MIL, is arriving by train as we speak and I am going to go upstairs and do a bit more cleaning and some gift wrapping. And likely have a cup of peppermint tea as well.

I hope that you are all winning your battles, colon-related and otherwise.

I hope you are feeling better soon. So far, we're all healthy here. Erika will not be allowed to come until she is better. She might think I'm joking.

Hi Karen,
All three of us here got the same thing. I unfortunately got sick on the plane on the way to Toronto.

Just wanted to let you know that the "Colon" sympton sticks around for a few days...We all took about a week to really get over it.

Feeling great now though. I feel your pain!

Heather: thanks for the words of hope. We're still in the throws of it and feeling rotten. Not a great way to spend Christmas Day that's for sure.
