Aliens in the Apple

We’ve been a bit blah

Franci 8 Oct 2010 Family

The weather has turned colder, there has been a lot of (cold) rain, I’ve unpacked the winter clothes, the heaters have had their first few runs and we’ve all gotten sick. Ben has only had a couple of days where he didn’t feel too great, and Marica’s only had a bit of a runny nose, but Esther’s gotten hit the hardest. She’s been sick for over a week now with a runny nose and on-and-off fever, but thankfully no cough. The poor kid is going to cut a tooth too any day now, so she really has had it a bit rough. And the bug is slowly working its way through me too. Swollen glands, sore throat, headache, blocked nose… it seems that it is impossible to go through a season change without getting sick. What’s the deal with that? All to say that we’re laying low for a while and not doing lots of exciting NYC stuff. :-)

So sorry to hear you have all been sick. I hope you and Esther recover quickly now. What kind of heating system do you have? Maybe the germ/virus came through the heaters if it is air being channelled from somewhere. You know, that’s how some bugs have been spread in those most sterile of all places, hospitals…

I doubt it came with the heating system — it’s piped steam. The heaters looked like oil heaters, but steam is pumped through them.

I found that I get sick with the season changes in NY, too. I am not sure what it is, but I often feel like it is because the seasons don’t gradually change, but it feels more sudden and unexpected. It seems to throw my body for a whirl. I am praying that you all get better! Love you all
