I always have a fear of getting sick, as it seems I am a magnet for colds and germs. Colds are hard on me, as I always end up with a lung infection as a result of a cold, resulting in antibiotics. Now, I can accept that I'm going to get sick every now and then, maybe even a couple of times a year. But I get especially nervous about getting sick while on vacation. It seems to be a problem with either Ethan or me getting sick around vacation. Being sick on vacation is so disappointing. We work hard all year and save money to take a one week vacation. Having a cold show up during that same week is the worse.
We leave for Seattle on Sunday. Several people at work have reported being sick in the last couple of weeks. Like, really sick. Flu symptoms. I am paranoid with picking something up. A part of me wishes I would get sick now and get it over with so I am better by the time we leave. But then I worry about Ethan being sick on vacation. Wow, I hate the cold season. Keeping my fingers crossed I can manage to stay health for the next two weeks.
