good morning fellow sparkers. today the last of our guests leave, my brother and my 97 y o dad fly home to new york. we will be leaving at the crack of dawn to get them to the local airport. fourth trip this week... hoping the snow will hold off until we get home.
my granddaughter was here with her parents (a minor miracle, considering that we have no idea if the marriage will hold), and she managed to leave many of us with a cold or worse. my son (mari's uncle) has a tendency for pneumonia and he is scheduled to fly home to north carolina today; DH (an MD) is worried and does not want him to fly. i have the worst cold i've had in ages (we live so isolated, can't remember the last time i was ill), and my brother is already on the way to recovery. DH for once was hit mildly, as was DD. and the miracle of all - my dad seems to have escaped completely. fingers crossed that it will hold.
the other miracles is that despite all the company, the food, the restaurant meals - i have managed to lose weight this week. base weight is about the minimum it's been on this journey. we have managed to keep up exercise as much as possible, mainly walking, have not run for a good long time now, between the snow, the company, and the cold.
looking forward to a short break before the excitement of 2013...
live every day so the border collie is happy for a good, active life!
