So You Can Rest Medicine

Ugh what happened to the week? My brother Bret, SIL Tammy and two nieces were in town staying at my parents'. So last weekend we all spent at the lake and then I took off work to take them into Boston Thursday. They enjoyed the Museum of Science, the butterfly garden and the Duck Boat tours. Each kid got to drive the boat on the river. That night we took Bret and Tammy out to BVI because they had not been able to join us there for our post-nuptial party in Nov. I was a little under the weather that day but by Friday I was totally sick. I slept most of the day and used N*quil to get through the nights. By the second night it always gives me really weird dreams. Today we went down to the lake again to see my family before they headed home to Virginia. I rested more but it was so hot that I had to spend time floating in the water just to keep from combusting. Keegan had stayed over there two nights to have more time with his cousins. I missed him and I am glad to have him back sleeping in his room right now. I leave tomorrow for DC. So I won't be back until Wed evening. I like the travel especially once I get to my destination. I just miss my family so. Only a couple of more business trips and then I am done for the year. I hate being sick and traveling too.
