Yup, It's That Time Of Year (ah-choo!)

We met up with Steve-O and family last Sunday to go apple picking. The orchard was located atop an 1100 foot hill in the Virginia Piedmont and there was a wicked north wind howling when we got there. As a result, my four year old picked up a cold and has been wheezy and somewhat off the last couple days.

Sure enough, I seem to have picked it up from her and have been sliding down hill all day. Fortunately, it's Friday afternoon and things aren't too hectic around here.

Unfortunately, we've got a lot going on this weekend. This evening, we're off to River Bend Park in Great Falls, VA for some kind of Halloween campfire thingy. If they need someone to play a walking corpse, I might be well suited for the role by then.

Tomorrow it's my six year old's soccer game at the ungodly hour of 8:00 AM, followed by taking my two year old to her first class birthday party of the year. Then tomorrow night my six year old is hosting her very first slumber party for the other first grade girls in her class. I know I'll be called upon as a combination emcee/chaperone/referee, but if I'm feeling sufficiently grumpy I might just impose marshall law and have done with it.

It's a myth that weather causes illness. More likely, your daughter was already infected by a classmate and it was coincidence that you were on the cold mountain when she succumbed to symptoms. ;-)

No, but it does put stress on the body that leaves one more susceptible to whatever's going around.
