Home again

Everyone can relax, I'm back home safe. No, really... relax.

After hanging out with Stud Farmhand the day after the long horseride, and trying to walk off the outrageous soreness in my upper upper upper inner thigh, I headed off to The Good Reverend's House of Children (tm).

My friends have birthed their 6th child, making that 2 boys and 4 girls. The Wife and I are kinda godparents or "crazy aunt-and-uncle" to these kids, and visit as often as we can. Both families wish we were closer together (they're up in Bellevue), but they are well ensconced in a great community surrounding the Waldorf school that Mrs. Reverend runs and all their kids attend. We have deep deep roots here in Pdx, so we are restricted to occasional visits.

Mrs. Farmhand was coming down with some bug when I left their house, and then I proceeded to talk with The Good Reverend til the wee hours of the morning, to be awakened early early the next day by the scuttling of little feet and giggling of little mouths. Possible exposure to Mrs. Farmhand bug + not much sleep + being surrounded by Little Vectors for Disease (A.K.A. children) had me feeling like I was coming down with something by the time I arrived home today. It was more than worth it though, to see the Wee One and give hugs and smooches to the various children of the house. I love to see these parents in action, it truly warms my heart.

I knew I was heading for rough times by the time I got home tonight, feeling it in my throat and kinda swirly in the head, so pried The Wife away from her studies and went over to Jon Schell's acupuncture clinic for Group Night -- Mondays and Saturdays. She needed to get prepped up for her big test tomorrow, and I needed to knock this bug before it got me. I was reminded sitting there getting stuck that I really, truly hate needles. But I can't argue with the results. I already feel better and expect to dodge this bullet of a potential cold.

I figure that's all the news that's fit to print -- give The Wife good thoughts tomorrow (tuesday the 31st) around 9:30 a.m. when she sits for her test if you get a chance.

Enjoy your evening, morning, daytime

Hope you ditch the bug before it gets to you!

Swirly. Nice word.

Well, so far so good on the bug situation. Not entirely confident I'm out of the weeds tho, so we'll see.

Shoch, seemed like an appropriate way to describe the insides of my head/vision at the time LOL.

Bah, excuses, excuses. The bug is Ms. Farmhand's fault (rumor has it that it was a migraine and she recovered fine by dinner time) and everyone else who was on that ride is walking fine.
