Wesley was up all night puking.

We leave for NYC on Friday.

I’m in full blown, “OH MY GOD WE CAN NOT BE SICK,” mode which is weird because I’m the opposite of a germaphobe. I touch bathroom doors with my hands, I don’t wipe down shopping carts, and I don’t even own Purel. I do the basic hand-washing after the bathroom and before cooking but that’s about it.


What else do I do? I don’t want to get sick but I REALLY don’t want anyone else to get sick. This is LITERALLY a once-in-a-lifetime trip. This is a trip funded by a work bonus so it’s not like we have the kind of money to try again some other time. This was to celebrate 20 years together and OH MY GOD PLEASE DON’T LET ANYONE ELSE GET SICK AND PLEASE LET THIS BE OVER IN 24 HOURS.

On a lighter note, here’s a picture of me living my best life at the Blossomwood Witch Ride fundraiser this weekend.

  1. I know I commented on Instagram, but I seriously adore that picture.

    For sickness (and warding it off) I would recommend some Emergen-C or similar. Load up on the Vitamin C and stay as hydrated as you can. Good luck, and I hope he feels better soon!

  2. I love this pic!! Also, drink grape juice. No clue if it works or not, but I’ve read it can prevent others from getting a stomach bug.

  3. I have nothing to say about germs but this made me laugh so I just have to share it. Do you use Feedly? Over the past year they’ve been working on a new feature where the computer tries to figure out what a post is about, and they ask you questions after the post to help train the AI (or whatever machine learning is being used to read and evaluate posts). Sometimes they are right on target but others, not so much. This time, they are both right on target but also still somehow funny. This is what Feedly asked me about today’s post:
    What is the focus of this article? Hand washing? New York City? Other?
    Anyway I hope everyone stays well and healthy and you have a fantastic time. 🙂

  4. BTW, born-and-bred New Yorker here. I live in Manhattan. We are NICE! You will be surprised! We offer help to tourists! We smile! We are as hard on each other as we are on anyone!

    You’ll love it here.

  5. Safe travels tomorrow! I hope the weather holds out, and you have the most amazing trip! I can’t wait to hear (read/see) all about it!
