It's better to be a dog in a peaceful time than be a man in a chaotic period.

We’re frantically packing and organizing to get our house ready for the market. Having a toddler around certainly complicates matters. Plus he’s let’s just say “active” for his age. Being a new parent I really have no basis of comparison but other one-year-old’s at the park certainly seem a lot slower than E.

Complicating matters we have a week long vacation out of town coming up. Plus I had jury duty this week and I got a sinus infection. Cue the violins. I felt the sickness hitting me as I waited in the jurors’ lounge. On the bright side what attorney would pick the red-faced sweaty guy to be on his or her jury panel.

It really seems like I’ve gotten sick more often since the little guy has been around. I don’t know if it’s because I just have so much that I have to do and I notice it more or if I truly am getting sick more often. Ah well I’m on the mend now. The pressure is starting to let loose.

Be well.

Yep, you will get sick a lot more this first year. We certainly did. On the plus side, maybe it got you out of jury duty. (I personally hate jury duty.) The good part is that with your move, you won't be called as often.

Hang in there. It gets easier.
