I had the supreme pleasure of welcoming 2 new members to the Mac ‘family’ this past week. They were both family members, which meant my savvy tech support abilities were not for sale.

However, my mother-in-law (whom I also switched to a Mac last year) did cook some Colombian snacks for us, which was pretty sweet. Empanadas are so tasty!

“Good God Y’all -- I Feel Bad!”

I came back from a weekend visit at my parents house and on the drive home, I started coughing, and felt achy all over. On Monday, Mason woke up to the same symptoms. When his fever hit 102º this morning, we took him to his pediatrician.

The cause? Would you believe the flu? The funny parts were:
1. ‣ Nobody at my parents’ house was sick that day.
2. ‣ I had a flu shot this winter.

Now I’m drinking a “Double Big Gulp” of cranberry juice (what? big guy, big thirst!) and keeping the tissue box nearby at all times.

As of now, Sonia has proven immune to all of this. Lucky gal.
