It is a good time to be thankful for fireplaces, and warm houses, and all of the comforts of home.
Connor and Jake were home not feeling well today. Derek went back to work even though he's not 100 percent better. And I am still stuffy and tired. Still, I was thinking today as I drove home from the store, that this is a good time to be sick. By that I mean that we have a comfortable house, more than adequate blankets and pillows, medicine to help us feel better, and entertainment at our fingertips. We aren't pioneers having to get up and plod along in a feverish state. Even when I have to go to the store I get to drive -- and I have seat warmers! I love those seat warmers! True, being sick is still not fun, but it could be a LOT worse, and I am very grateful that it isn't.
