Just a few days ago I was remarking to A. how thankful I was that this winter has so far been remarkably free of illness. After last winter's bonanza of digestive upsets and other things, I was so very, very happy that as a family we have only had one quite mild cold.
So of course, I came down with a cold the day after making that rash statement.
No one else has caught it yet, so now I'm knocking on LOTS OF WOOD. And never opening my mouth to jinx us again.
