A New Beginning

Sorry It's been so long peoples, all 4 of you :D...The end of this year has been challenging for us here. Otis has been sick much of December. We had an absolutely lovely time In San Francisco the day after his Company Party. It's so much nicer looking at the Macys' Window displays and Lights @ Neiman Marcus when it's 65 out. All the Cali people were all bundled up, and we're just too comfortable in our fall jackets. We had lunch with some friends at Burger Bar, a Hubert Keller restaurant. Alcoholic shakes, OMG, we couldn't we got 3 and shared between 6 people. So much food, Otis and I shared a burger. It was perfect, no doggy bag to carry on our excellent adventure. So we then went to the Union Square Cristmas tree, and watched skaters at the rink, and walked around looking at all the shops including a Swarovski Crystal place. Then we moved on to Fishermans Warf and had some Bubba Gump Clam Chowder for supper...Perfect day.

The next morning, rise and shine ready to go to the airport and fly home and Otis isn't well. He doesn't get sick. What's up with this? I didn't know how sick he was...He's going to make it home, he'll be fine... We take our car back. Check my luggage, and I come back to find my germaphobe husband LYING ON AN AIRPORT BENCH...slight panic, he's too ill to travel home...then I talk to a Southwest Supervisor, and I regret not having gotten her name, get my luggage back, get a credit for our flight, call the office, they get a new hotel, and send a driver to get us and take us to our lovely room. He spends the next 2 days drinking lots of fluids, eating soup, taking over-the-counter meds and trying to shake the flu...

Home, ah, now to get Christmas, work, work...Day after Christmas HE GETS THE FLU AGAIN, or still, not sure...Here we are on January 2, and he has rarely gotten up...his cough seems to be subsiding...he's eaten mostly soup, drank a ton of water and juice, and hopefully is ok to go back to work tomorrow...We'll see...

In the meantime, I've been taking all the vitamins, tinctures, and teas I can shove down my throat :)...Here's hoping I DON'T GET IT. Love to All.

now let's see if I can attach some pictures...

so Ya, haven't quite got the hang of the picture thing...I've been obsessing over placement for an Hour and Half, you get the idea!


  1. Germs are bad. Hope u all stay well.

  2. Looks like it was a fun trip...till the end! It's really weird to see a Christmas tree next door to a palm tree. Crazeeee!

  3. LOL! Sorry 'bout Uncle Bill. Hope he is well now.
