Cough Cough Sputter

I'm feeling a bit like a used car this week. I have been battling an awful chest cold off and on since the first week of the month of December.
Not only no time to blog, but I also feel as though this holiday season has passed by so quickly and in a bit of a fog. I wish I could have enjoyed it just a bit more.

I may have to catch up on the seasons events in a later posting. Today we sent my son back to Alabama and his training. I swore I would not get emotional, he is an adult. However, he teared up and said, he wasn't sure how long it would be this time. And the waterworks ensued. We miss him terribly. I am so proud of my son. I made sure to tell him so. Which just started us up again, but it is so important that he know.
The 19 and a half years have flown by, I remember times when all I could dream was the kids to grow up and move on their own. Now, it is happening and I hate it!, And I love it! And I hate it!

Monday, I will be back at work after a week and a half off. Then it is back to the status quo. I managed to get out on New Years Eve, to a local pub that may be closing soon. The smoke didn't help my cold out any, (That will change also as Utah has just passed an indoor clean air act in all private clubs, which in Utah, are bars.) but it was nice to get out. Being so sick I have become stir crazy.
We did manage to do a few things as a family, ice skating, visiting the Body Worlds exhibit before it left town and one day we were able to take in a movie. I loaded up on meds and stuffed my pockets with tissues and cough drops.
More on those events later.
