Blogging Christmas: 11:30 AM – John is Reading.

John has a cold so he gets to rest and get better. He is happy as a clam with a stuffy nose and cozy on the couch reading Green Thoughts by Eleanor Perenyi.

And no, not all of these drugs are for John’s cold.  I stocked up this morning on stuff that would be covered under our 2009 tax-free Flexible Spending Plan. Plus we needed some things for the trip like Dramamine. I don’t really have good sea legs. Even a short boat ride out to a reef for snorkeling can make me queasy. And I don’t want to reprise the great Bermuda boat disaster of 2007 where I hurled over the side of the boat while all the other snorkellers looked on in horror.
What does it say about drug marketing that the packaging goes so well with the citrus fruit?

    Looks like my hubbys medicine cabinet. :-)

    Merry Christmas to you and John!

    My Christmas wish is that you don't need to use all of those drugs this year! Have a great trip!

    Wishing John a speedy return to good health. The fact that he's reading one of my all-time most favourite gardening books will surely aid his recovery!

    Lezlie: What is it about husbands?

    ArchitectDesign: Especially the Imodium!

    Margaret: Whenever I talk about you to my other half, the shorthand I have to refer to you so that he knows who I am talking about is Margaret Mandolin. He was very happy to know you like that book. He likes it when our worlds collide. I do too.
