I’m still cranky and grumpy and now sick on top of it all. The whole family is sick, we’re a veritable germ factory. I’ve taken to stealing using some of the boys’ ear-drops, it’s that bad. To remind myself that life does not completely suck, I’m copying out something I wrote in my journal yesterday:

I sit here eating an Italian sandwich with the Swiss Alps in front of me while to my back a street performer plays Scottish bagpipes; in my lap is a book of English poetry and in my bag a German novel. This is the life I have chosen. This is the life I have made.

No, it doesn’t all suck.

    Hope everyone feels better soon! We had some nasty viruses this winter that dragged on forever.

    We just got some drugs. Hoping that will help. Thanks for stopping by.

    You’re right, life doesn’t completely suck – and neither does Germany. The latter mostly sucks because of the rudeness of the people, but there are some extremely brief moments when this places is a gem.
