And a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you, too, Natalie!

Love the picture of Jack in your Christmas "card".

Well... I hope you all had a better Christmas than we did! We - my husband and I - got the flu for Christmas! And our weekend at the coast set for Thursday and Friday night turned into a sleepless Christmas Eve because Jack, who is a high-strung and anxious dog, could NOT settle in to sleep in the cottage we rented. He was okay while we were up with him but as soon as we tried to go to bed he paced frantically. So I stayed up half the night with him since my husband already had the flu but I didn't have it yet. And then, after a nice trip to the beach on Christmas day, we came home in the afternoon.

Much of Jack's problem seems to have been the wildlife outside the door. He could smell and hear them and was very agitated. He constantly wanted out.

I stayed up from 11pm to 12:30am cleaning our dishes and packing as I thought we might not get through that night. But he tired out and went to bed at 12:30 and managed to stay asleep until about 4:00. Then he was agitated again and I stayed up and watched TV - thank goodness the cottage was not rustic and had cable - until 6:00am and he settled in to sleep on the couch and then was able to go to bed at 6:00 and stay until 10:00am. So eventually I got sleep but it was broken up.

So there was no way we were doing another night of that. And by Christmnas evening I had a full-blown case of the flu and we were all very glad to back in our own bed!

Oh well!

Natalie

Oh, Natalie, sorry your Christmas was so miserable! Hope you and your husband recover quickly from the flu. Take care of yourselves, as well as of that delightful Jack!

Natalie,

So sorry you and Jeff had the Flu

You have had a miserable time especially when you were away for a break.

Jack's smell sense would be full blown with the wild life outside. This is what has unsettled him

James and me both took it at the same time a few years back and it floored us. You both must have been feeling pretty rotten on the way home.

Very true there is no place like your own bed.

I do hope you both feel better soon.

Hugs

Margaret
