Well, I got sick anyway

Norma Jean texting her daughter
I don't know why it always happens to me when I visit my sister. Perhaps it was the plane, or maybe it was a residual illness after the sore throat I had last week. I am congested and coughing up a bit of stuff. No sneezes but I sure don't feel all that well. Fortunately, the swimming we do in the morning makes me feel better, and tomorrow I'll stay home from walking with Norma Jean through the park. I need a break.
Norma Jean talking to her daughter and granddaughter
Once we got home from the coffee shop, Norma Jean suggested that I might want to talk to Allison (her daughter), Alicia and Lexie, her granddaughters. Here you can see the younger one, who was not talking last year when I visited but is now talking up a storm.

This is the same setup that we use when we talk on FaceTime every other week. It works great and makes it so nice to have virtual visits. I feel like I'm not missing out on my sister's life.

  3. FaceTime is great isn't it? We FaceTime with South Carolina when we're not there ourselves ... altho' that's exactly where we are right now. Anyway, I think airplanes do it to you; but hope you feel better soon.

  6. Noooo--not fair you are sick. Have you been tested to see if you might need some meds? Hope the sunshine kills the bug.

  11. Yes, I think airports and airplanes spread germs especially this time of year. But sunshine and rest should take care of it. I think you are basically healthy and your body will overcome these assaults. You might think of wearing a mask going home on the plane... ? so you don't take in more germs?

  13. Dear DJan, so sorry you are not feeling well. I hope this doesn't affect your journey back home.

    The photo of your sister with the tablet showing her daughter is the first one that I have thought immediately that the two of you are clearly sisters! The resemblance is delightful to see! Peace.

  15. Aww DJan, so sorry to read you are feeling poorly, and hope you are on the mend by now !
    You can certainly tell that Norma Jean and yourself are sisters, I believe you could be twins :)
    Take good care and enjoy your visit.
    Hugs,

  16. Oh - I remember you got sick last year. Those plane rides can be disastrous for spreading germs! Hope you get the sunshine cure.
