16 days of fun, loads of laughter as well as feasting on a smorgasbord of international cuisine - this would be an apt description of our Yuletide holidays.
Granted it was very last minute and I wasn't sure until 3 days before the trip whether it would push through or not ... we made every hour and every penny worth the stress and anxiety we experienced before the trip.
I notice that my parents were slower in their movements and got tired easily after just a couple of hours so naturally we had to adjust our itineraries to accommodate their 'weaknesses' for lack of a better word.
But nevertheless, we all had so much fun ... extremely enjoyed the cold climate ... ate too much (as usual) and simply bonded as a family.
We returned Sunday (Jan. 4, 2014) and Mom promptly fell sick with severe respiratory issues. I'd blame the sudden shift in climate as well as her weak lungs. So I had to put on my caregiver hat and take care of her. Of course, I'd do it without fail as I'd do ANYTHING for my parents.
She feels better now so I'm now back in Q.C and it seems that I shouldn't relinquish my caregiver hat just yet as it is hubby's turn to get sick with colds and coughs. Again, I'd do anything for him as well ... that goes without saying ... but I'd say it anyway.
So photo editing, laundry sorting and longer blog entries will take a back seat for now as I need to nurse hubby back to good health.
Till then ... hope everyone is having a good and pleasant 2014 so far! =)
