The sniffles…the girls have them. Poor things. Luckily, I have (miraculously) wound up with two girls who handle getting sick pretty well, and they are simply getting on with life and ignoring their colds. I am fairly certain that they did not get this from me.
Of course, Marcus and I have them too–not from a cold or the weather, but because Anne and Phil’s time with us is up. They left yesterday for a few days in NYC before they’ll return to the UK on Saturday. We are both really, really sad to see them go. Marcus and I were talking last night about how we would have liked to have met them earlier on in our stay overseas…but of course, we can’t go back.
We had a great time while they were here though! We took them to Deep Creek, where we hiked and generally just hung out and relaxed. They saw downtown Annapolis as it prepared for the boat show. They got to play with the girls (they’re exhausted now, by the way). Anne and I knitted, and Marcus and Phil played video games.
And when they left, Marcus commented about how we’ll really have to try to get me out there next year…so at least that’s something.
Cheers, Anne and Phil! We miss you already!
