We are going to Colorado next week to see my parents for Turkey Day, and I just came down with a cold. It wouldn’t normally be that big of an issue except that my mother is still recovering from her massively invasive cancer surgery.

I hate traveling with a cold. It isn’t fun for anyone. At least I get to go through LaGuardia for maximum germ spreading effectiveness, 12 Monkeys style. I am taking Sudafed and Zicam to try to nip it in the bud, but I don’t have high hopes I will be 100% over it by Monday.

At least today I get to lug 50 40lbs. bags of heating pellets from the parking area onto my back porch. I wish I had a better way to transport them, but my yard doesn’t help with that. I hope to have it done by the time the snow starts.

How is everyone else doing?
