Christmas Flu

Micah and I throwing axes
This year at Christmas Lauralea and I were going to be alone, so in the fine, plus 5 C weather of pre-Christmas excitement, I suggested we head to Saskatoon to celebrate with family. Its been over ten years since we've headed there for this celebration with my family. This year we also got to visit our sons and daughter-in-law.

Who knew that herself would get as sick with the flu as she did, and then the cold front would settle in and keep things in the -30C area for a week. And then of course on this last day here, that I would get her dreaded disease and am fully engaged with this flu. Ho Ho Ho.

Tomorrow we'll try for home, hopefully in the line of thinking that my health could get worse in the days ahead.  But its also suppose to get really, very cold on the road tomorrow. Ug. I hate that.

But its been good to spend some time with the kids and mom and my siblings, really good. And nice to bump into a few old friends around town.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


  1. Hope you made it back safely my friend, and that Madam Influenza is waining in her influence.

  2. Hi Toni, we made it back home safely but to be honest I don't remember much of that six hour drive home, except that it was the closest day in eight years. When we got home I headed straight for bed and have been there. Yesterday I was up again and today i am up and trying to be ready for work in the morning. It was a real kick in the pants flu-wise, so things are really feeling better. Thanks.
