I'm home and I'm sick

Just a bad cold, but it just sucks to be sick.  It all started with a sore throat on Monday and just progressed from there.

We drove up to NJ on Sunday and my uncle's funeral was on Monday.  It was a graveside service and I thought it was really moving.  The rabbi did a good job to keep it meaningful, but didn't prolong things in the 30°F cold.

We then went to my aunt & uncle's house for shiva (part of the Jewish mourning ritual).  For those who do not have experience with this, it would remind you of a wake -- lots of people, lots of talking, lots of food.

JD and I drove back home on Tuesday morning, so that he could make his follow-up appointment with the pain clinic.  I futilely attempted sleep in the waiting room.  Really, all I accomplished was to watch court shows.

Hopefully, I'll be more exciting tomorrow.

Sorry you aren't feeling well.

Meant to comment on your picture posts from last week. LOVE the bagel mart. I (stupidly) used to go the gym across the street then run across to grab myself a bagel sandwich and a dozen for the road.

Feel better

I am glad your uncle's service was so meaningful and gave you a chance to say goodbye. Losing a relative is always so hard. I hope you get to feeling better soon.

Hey, thanks for the Holiday Cheer. It seriously cracked me up, my coworkers thought I was (even more) nuts.

Here's a little for you... I can't take it anymore. So you win, Okay? Here! Phoebs? Flying a Jet? Better make it a spaceship so you can get back to your HOME. PLANET. And Ross, Tom Jones called, he wants his pants back! And Hornswoggle?! What are you dating a character from Fraggle Rock?!

I am also from the DC area, but did not get to make it to the cookie exchange. Hopefully I can meet you at the next get together.
