Back in the US with a cold caught in SK!

If you've been reading my blog, you've probably noticed that my immune system sucks, so I guess it should come as no shock that I am home sick today with a cold.

Michael and I got home yesterday morning from our long flight from South Korea and I felt like complete crap. The flight was a red-eye and I had zero sleep with my cold. I always cringe getting on planes hoping I'm not stuck next to a sniffling sick person. Imagine my guilt getting on the plane armed with tissues, dayquil, hand sanitizer, and cough drops. I sincerely hope I didn't get anyone on that flight sick as well.

Now after almost 36 hours of rest, I finally feel somewhat functional. It's been all sleep, hot water with lemon and honey, tons of t.v., and snuggles in bed with the cat, but it's finally starting to pay off. I can actually get on my laptop and blog without feeling like I'm pushing a half ton rock off my chest. Okay, I'm exaggerating slightly, but it still sucks being sick. It definitely wasn't the best way to end my two week vacation in Asia.

On that note, I still can't believe it's over. Oh how I yearn for the eighty degree weather in Da Nang, Vietnam and the sandy beaches. As for Seoul, South Korea, let's just say I don't miss the below freezing weather.

So about my trip. I don't think one blog post will be able to cover all of my experiences, so look forward to a series on it throughout this month where I go in detail of my day-to-day escapades.

In other news I signed up for my first conference ever! Won't you join me for the 24th Annual Writing & Illustrating for Children Conference for the Western Washington region? I'm pretty stoked about it, but I've taken such a long break from writing I know I need to get back to it asap!

Another thing that's coming up? Michael and I are moving this weekend! Looks like it's going to be a very busy week on top of my vacation hangover and cold!
