Air shipment, slightly damaged...

Look what expateek picked up at the Warsaw airport Monday night!

Child number 4!

Again, another wonderful Christmas prezzie for expateek!

Isn't she mysterious and beautiful?

But oh no!

Something's a little bit wrong.

We think this little girl may have the dreaded infectious mononucleosis.

(Note the fatigued look and the horribly swollen glands in neck!)

Probably kissed a Scottish frog or something...

Tea and toast are the order of the day.

And plenty of bedrest.

That's what home is for, after all.

Where you can rest,


and get well

surrounded by the people

who love you more than anything.

I hope she does not have THAT and that it turns out that she is just tired. I had THAT the summer I turned 16. I ended up in the hospital. It is a real bummer and can come complete with complications. You are right about the bed rest. I thought that they were never going to let me out of bed.

Hi Yolanda! Welcome, and glad you like it here. Thanks for the kind wishes, and come back often!

Christine -- I'm pretty sure that IS what it is. She hasn't moved from her bedroom for ... well, almost three days now. At least she's got a month at home to recover. Yay! But she won't be baking Xmas cookies, like she usually does, anytime soon. Looks like I'll have to suck it up and do some baking myself. Arg!
