Well, technically it's Saturday now. Work is so stressful these days that I start counting down to the next weekend already when Monday starts!

Our kid has a cold. She's sniffly and drippy and sneezy and congested. So what does she do? She likes to drape herself all over me and breathe on me. When she manages to sneeze on me, she laughs. Since I will take a snuggling teenager under any circumstances, I only half-heartedly object.

The result of which is that now I'm congested and sniffly and have a bit of a stomach bug. I hope hope hope that we don't pass this on to my in-laws, who will be here in about 16 hours. It's tough enough for them to fly overseas at their age; it would be very inhospitable of us to germ them as soon as they land!

Our house is not too untidy right now; a couple of hours of cleaning tomorrow should do the trick. Then I am off to the grocery to get some of their favorites. I have dishes and recipes floating around in my head and don't know where to start!

    I am still working on our kitchen from this summer. My wife is very patient because everything is still unorganized. The pantry doors are coming up this week so this should solve and give her ample space where we had none before. Hope everyone feels better. emoticon

    Try Airborne? Don't remember how it is spelled, but it seems to help me when I'm fighting off a cold. Hope you feel better, you certainly do not have time to get sick!

    Right! "It would be very inhospitable of us to germ them as soon as they land! " Bemused, your word choices crack me up sometimes! Little do your sweet in-laws know what they're flying into!

    In Japan, people with colds (except for me) wear face masks. I really, really hate face masks and think they most likely don't help prevent infection at all, but I think it's seen here as a way to say, "Hey. I hope I don't germ all you other passengers on the train!!" I feel pretty rude when I go around sneezing without a face mask, but I just can't stand how hot those masks are and how they steam up my glasses.

    Enough about me and my dilemma--You, my dear Bemused, have a wonderful, wonderful time with your sweet in-laws! I predict they'll avoid the sniffles. Their joy at seeing you all will surely strengthen their immune systems. Keep us posted.

    Ah! TGIF. It's still Friday here. Got home from work about an hour ago and am very much looking forward to the weekend.
    Hope you and your daughter feel better soon. Colds and sniffles are no fun.
