We normally have our big dinner on Christmas. This year we have friends coming over so we’re planning the big meal on Christmas Eve so they can spend Christmas with family.

I’m a little concerned that I might be coming down with something again. Not sure yet. Just a scratchy throat, but that’s how it started last time.

We had an impromptu vacation last week and only got back a couple of days ago. This is where I probably caught the bug of death. I’m downing big doses of echinachea and Nyquil at night. It could be the sudden changes in weather too. I don’t know for sure yet.

I’ll tell you more about our vacation tomorrow and why we kept it a mystery.

  1. Looking forward to hearing more about your getaway. When I feel I’m getting sick, I mega dose with vitamin C (20 tablets at least of 500 mg). So far I’m still alive and if I catch it early, I usually don’t get sick. Hope you feel better soon!
