Tenacity

Yes, until today, we didn't have a thermometer in the house. I'm not sure why, but it just wasn't the sort of essential thing we thought we needed, unlike say, the Wii Fit or a self-foaming latte-making espresso pot. But it's about time- Jude's been down with a tenacious viral fever for the past few days, the baaad kind, the kind that incapacitates you, the bed-bound, chicken-soup-only kind of fever that hits you like a ton of bricks and haunts you for the next week like a relentless hound. He could barely make it down the stairs, lest of all out of the house. Which is why we had to cancel our long-anticipated trip to San Francisco to Jonas and Melanie's wedding :(

We've been looking forward to this trip for soooooo long- it would have been Jude's first journey to California and it was also meant to be a reunion of sorts with several of our friends whom we haven't seen in a few years. Plus all the sightseeing, food, and we even planned a trip to the Google campus to meet a friend for lunch. But it was not to be- unless my recovering husband has anything to say about it. He's actually feeling a little better today and we're planning to go for a walk outside later. But for right now, the dear man is hunched over the computer figuring out different ways of configuring our miles and cash options, looking out for last-minute deals, and just all round making a last-ditch attempt to haul ourselves out West.

Watch this space, we might just make it afterall...
