Both Patty and I are feeling under the weather today; consequently, neither of us is accomplishing what we had hoped to tackle. We blame the bug that has been jumping from one family member to another. Patty seems especially short of breath whenever she attempts anything too ambitious (which, if you know Patty, is too often the norm.) Right now, she's reclined on the sofa and writing out thank you cards.
Yesterday, we had a nice evening out as a family (dinner and a movie, as planned), although the residual effects of a week of illness seemed apparent during an uncharacteristically quiet meal. Patty and I were in bed by 10pm, and fell sound asleep in short order. Given our current state, I suspect this evening may also have an early finish.
