Holiday? What Holiday?

I hope everyone here in the states had a great time celebrating the 4th of July, everyone else I hope you had a good weekend.

I'm sad to say we didn't get to see any fireworks, we didn't go to any bbq's and we didn't do anything fun. We're building an addition on our camp so all we did was work on it all weekend. It was backbreaking work. The good news is I got an excellent workout lugging 2x6x10's, lifting plywood, bending, stretching and running around being the gofer. I was totally exhausted and fell into a dead sleep as soon as we got home last night until about 4:00 in the morning when I woke up with a sore throat and a wheezing cough.

I'm can't say I'm surprised since I'm on vacation this week and I had planned on getting the house organized and hitting the gym every single day. It's just my luck that something always happens when I try to take a vacation. Today was a total bust. I couldn't get out of bed and I can't take a deep breath without hacking. First day of vacation wasted. Let's hope I can get over this and enjoy the rest of the week. My vacations are good times, yeah, good times.

B got tickets to the Red Sox game tomorrow night so that should be fun if I can breathe. Of course, we're supposed to have severe thunderstorms tomorrow but hopefully it will hold off until after the game.

I think that black cloud found me again.


  1. Grrr, ain't that always the way?

    I hope you feel better soon and have a good time in amongst all that work!

  2. I remember when I was teaching the only time I ever really got ill was during the holidays. Almost as though it waited on purpose....
    I hope you feel better soon!

  3. Oh, no! Hope you are feeling better!

  4. Hope you feel better soon! I feel your pain..I always tend to get sick on vacations or holidays, LoL.

    Woooo for Boston Red Sox! You are sooo lucky to be going to a game. Enjoy!!
