I have been fighting a cold for well over a week now. The good news is that I am preventing a war in my throat or lungs, but the bad news is that the skirmishes in my sinuses are wearing me out. I feel like I'm teetering on the edge of a cold. It's not worthy of complaint, particularly considering where I've been, but it's a major factor contributing to my exhaustion.
Fortunately our flight is not until early afternoon, so I will write the list and create piles tonight, then tomorrow morning Ian and I will teamwork the actual packing. I think the most sensible part about giving in to sleep tonight is that I have a chance to wake up with renewed excitement. Packing tonight would feel like a chore, but packing after a good night's sleep will be fun.
The kids, oh man, the kids. They are incredibly excited. The plane ride, the mountains, they just can't even imagine these things yet. Additionally, my mom wants to take Azalea skiing. Azalea didn't know what that was, so Ian showed her some skiing clips on YouTube. Her eyes got big and she said, "Dad, that looks dangerous." Hopefully when we get there she'll try the bunny slopes, but if not it will still be fun to hike around a mountaintop.
I'll be sure and post pictures of our trip, possibly while on the trip. Be well!
