2008 Starts off with a sniffle!

As usual, I'll start off with an apology for not writing sooner. I really DO have a good excuse this time.! 3 days before we left Utah to come home (more on that trip later!) I came down with a particularly virulent stomach flu! Both ends and quite uncomfortable. Charlotte commiserated with her Nana that she had 'quesadilla diaper, too"! I began to feel better the day before we were due to leave for home, except for the beginnings of a cold and we left Utah later than usual due to the major road being closed for weather and ice. Once we were finally on the road, John admitted that he felt a bit wobbly in his tummy, too. We only made it to North Platte, Nebraska (10 hours from Salt Lake City and 9 hours from home) before we gave up and got a hotel room for the night (New Year's Eve). We slept from 9:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. and John felt better so we got on the road again. Pulled into our garage at 5:00 p.m. that evening. The next day we both needed to get to work...however, my cold had turned into a sinus issue that required a doctor visit. He diagnosed a severe sinus infection! I can't believe the human body can manufacture that much snot! Anyway, I went back to work the next week and am beginning to feel better each day. My birthday is a blur...maybe we will celebrate next week??? So, friends, I hope to be better about posting in 2008....I don't think I can be much worse!

Soon, I'll post about Christmas with the Utah Knotwells...

I enjoyed reading about your family, I went to John's family blog as well, his family pixs are cute. Sorry you were ill for the holidays, it always stinks to be sick, but over the holidays even worse.
We're fine. Our families spent Xmas at Disneyland. Had a great time. Dominic didn't remember the last time he went.
Love Janet
