a quick update


I’m here to reassure you; I have not fallen off the face of the earth. I have, however, been sick. Like, bed-ridden sick. For over a week now! I’m finally up and about, and have been leaving the house the past few days. I still have a persistent cough that keeps me up at night if I’m not vigilant with the cough syrup, but all in all I feel loads better than I have in a long time.

It feels as though both nothing and tons of stuff has been going on in the meantime. David has had several jobs interviews, and I’ve had one meet-and-greet and made appointments for two more in the coming week. We went to see Where The Wild Things Are and finished watching the final season of Deadwood. We attended a dinner party and spent a day making a comic book (King Kong vs. T-Rex. For those interested, T-Rex wins) with David’s five year old pseudo-nephew Gordon (his cousin’s son).

We also went on a hay ride! Every year, Aunt Katie and her husband Tim put together a quintessential fall day of pumpkin decorating and take family, friends, and neighbors on a hay ride through their idyllic land. Take a look:

I have the measles and the mumps. a gash, a rash, and purple bumps


Remember my To Do list? All items are now crossed off. The few things we have left to do literally can’t be done until the last few days/hours, so for all intents and purposes David and I are truly ready to go.

Unfortunately we’re both sick, so even the few remaining tasks left seem impossibly overwhelming.

I’ve canceled all my social plans for the week thus far, which really sucks but can’t be helped at this point. I’ve got to recover. There’s no way I’m driving all the way to Minnesota feeling like crap the whole way.

I can’t wait to go home and make a “sick island” and eat soup and saltines and drink ginger-ale and go to sleep.
