I finally get some down time and what happens? I get sick. Not just sick, like a sniffle here and there but flat out sick (tonsils swollen, throat as red as can be). Ugh. So what do you think I am craving? A cool drink? Ice cream? No… the spiciest, hottest Carne Asada tacos known to man. I’ll burn this cold out of me yet!
Tonight we’ll heat up the grill and enjoy a little Mexican feast, watch some 80’s movies and just chill. Right now though I am on the couch reading. I am alternating between Foreign Tongue and The Middle Place and enjoying both of them. I may imbibe on a shot of NyQuil here in a little bit because the throat is quite the squeaky wheel today.
Tomorrow as we celebrate Memorial Day with our burgers and hot dogs, my 18-year-old nephew will be on a plane to Afghanistan where he’ll serve his country for twelve long months. It’s sort of ironic that he is being sent ON Memorial Day. I remember when he was just a chubby kid and now he is a sharp shooter for the Army. It blows my mind.
Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend.
