PERPETUAL SATURDAY

Forty-one hours of Saturday.

Because of the time-change between Korea and here, we ended up leaving Korea on Saturday at 12 noon, and arrived in Seattle after a 14-hour flight on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. It has been a long day.

The first thing we all did when we got home was head straight to the urgent care and get some antibiotics, because I swear - we've all picked up the death bacteria of DOOM. I thought I was doing better on the drive south from the airport, but by the time we got home, I thought I was going to die. The pressure in my head, the fluids draining out of my face, and the sharp stabbing pains over my entire body... I'm pretty sure I was fighting a losing battle.

Anyhow, I'm glad to be home. I think my daughter's goldfish is glad we're back too, since it didn't eat for 10 days we were gone. Either our goldfish is particularly resiliant (which is more than I can say for the rest of the family), or goldfish can normally go for long periods with out food. Very interesting. I'm tempted to conduct some experiements...

Well I'm glad you didn't die. I hope you all recover. Sounds like h-e-"double hockey sticks" to me.

Do you want to cancel Small Group or just have us meet for fellowship since leading is doubtful at this point?

Nah - I'll be fine by Tuesday, for sure. The antibiotics are working, so I'll be fine to lead. No worries.

Yeah...but knowing you have some foreign flu might be enough to scare others from coming... contageousness and all...

Oh, I see. No - we're all past contagious now. And it's not a flu - this was just a cold, plus a terrible sinus infection.
