I can’t remember the last time we had a major family gathering that didn’t involve at least one person coming down with a communicable disease, but this year we managed to make it through the holidays relatively healthy. When you have 11 people tripping over each other for days at a time, it’s nothing short of a miracle when no one gets sick. (I had a cold for a few days, but that’s nothing compared to the ear infections/bronchitis/pink eye fun that swept through the group last year.)
I’m fairly sure everyone enjoyed themselves. I KNOW everyone ate too much. And I for one am happy to get back to the ol’ routine.
Bring on 2014!
