Slow days of winter

I don't know why or how, but after the Thanksgiving event and weekend, we have been under the weather and slightly depressed.  Perhaps its just the relative lack of sunlight in the winter, or perhaps its the flu and illnesses that are going around.  Everyone in the family is just a bit off.

We have been on a roller coaster with the Army the past two weeks as my oldest son is trying to find a new unit.  We have learnt all about protectzia.  When things don't go your way, you call everyone you know to try and find the right angle.  We will be much better prepared for the next child, as our oldest has really broken new ground.

Our transplant recipient has been struggling with mouth sores for the past two weeks.  They are painful, and the doctors are unsure about their cause.  More tests, and meanwhile, we sit through fifteen minutes of gargling twice a day with three difference mouthwashes.  We hope that they will identify the cause soon, as its hard to watch your child suffer.

This weekend, we have no outside guests, but we are hosting a few neighbors for meals.  Four tonight and six tomorrow.  My oldest has invited a friend of his for dinner, so we have 13 for dinner and 14 for lunch.  Both sets of guests are somewhat picky eaters.
