I Should Be...
on a beach like this...right now...with a drink in one hand and a book in another. However, I'm not. Instead I'm at home in the freezing cold. This morning it was -35 Celsius. That's cold - really cold - the kind of cold that takes your breath away as soon as you step outside. Now, you might think I was just dreaming when I said I should be on a beach - but I'm not - that is really where I SHOULD be. Jim and I had booked a trip quite a while ago to the Dominican Republic. We were to leave January 9th. We were even packed and ready to go on Thursday night. But then at approximately 8pm I started to feel sick and then I was sick - very sick. I'll spare you the gory details but it wasn't pretty and it became evident at around 3am that we weren't going anywhere.
So here I am. I'm finally feeling better and it has only been in the last day or so that I've been able to look at my computer screen for more than a couple minutes without being sick. I haven't been able to update my blog or comment on any others. I should be able to catch up this week as I doubt I'll be spending any time outside frolicking.
I promise a better update soon. In the meantime, I think I'll sit back and dream about that beach....oh and for those of you who enjoy videos take a look at the one below. My boys emptying the dishwasher - if I hadn't caught that on video I would have thought that I was dreaming. I wasn't too impressed with Bennett kneeling IN the dishwasher but I hate to interrupt men at work.
