I'm sorry I haven't been around with more tales and photos. I'm working on it, it's just very slow going. I'm having a rough time getting over an allergy attack or maybe it was a cold, I don't know. I just know that it has knocked me on my butt and even though I'm finally feeling better, everything I do exhausts me.

Al's answer is that I should go to the gym, that will help. Well, it probably would, if I could complete any exertion without coughing up a lung and then sleeping for an hour.

I also have been lax in my reading. Sorry about that, too. It's pretty frustrating when even reading wears you out.

I think part of it is also that "post-trip depression" that I always seem to get. You know how it is, 10 days of nothing but fun and excitement, then back to grocery shopping and bill paying. Although, with how busy this year has been, I'm ready for a little more normal and routine.

Plus, Al is going out of town again for about a week and half, so we've been busy getting things ready for his trip. I'm always a little sad when he leaves, but honestly, I'm also a little relieved to have the house to myself for a few days. Going on vacation is wonderful but I don't get any time to myself, so I'll make up for that this coming week by watching chick movies and reading and eating popcorn for dinner. And, the Scottish Highland Games are next weekend in Kansas City. Even though Al isn't here, I'm thinking about going anyway. I just can't resist sheep dog demonstrations.

So, that's what's going on here. Hopefully I'll have more interesting stuff later.

I hope you feel better soon! Enjoy the winding down time. Watch "The Devil Wears Prada." That's an awesome chick flick.

AaaaaaHA! I asked Jay this morning if he thought you were feeling ok, because we haven't heard from you. I knew you'd be exhausted from the trip, so I didn't call. But, I would have tonight if you hadn't posted. Glad you're feeling a little better.

I thought you might be under the weather from all that world travel you've been doing. Take it easy, take Tink's advice about the movie and post many more Italy photos. If you could see your way to telling us about any wonderful foods you've discovered we'd be grateful for that too.

Feel better darl'n. I haven't watched a good chick flick in a long time. Maybe I need to sneak off and meet you in KC :-)
Highland Games sounds like a blast

(((hugs))) to help you get better real soon.

Oh man, the Highland Games sound like a lot of fun. Besides sheep dogs there are men in kilts, right? That sounds good!

Rest up. We'll be here when you're back to it.
