Frustration! Turns out I have a cold.:( I went to our neighborhood minute clinic after the gentle prodding of several concerned people just to be told I couldn't get antibiotics. Rats! So I resulted in buying a neti pot. It looks pretty harmless until you start irrigating your nasal passages. Then it looks like an instrument of torture. Daddy could only handle seeing me do this to myself for only a few seconds. Results....it really clears you up for a bit afterward. Granted, you can do several nasal lavages a day. Yes, you can go wild with the net pot!
On the trip front, bags are packed. There are a few last minute things to do: one more phone call to Madrid, a teensy weensy bit of stuff to stuff in someone's bag, toiletries, last minute cleaning/tidying up. You can't leave a dirty house....I've tried that before only to come home to funky smells and unplanned science experiments. We learn!
Here is an updated list of cities we plan to visit (yes, the trip has morphed!):
San Lorenzo de El Escorial
I'll try to blog while on the trip, but it may be difficult because of limited (& pricey) internet access. We'll just see what happens.
Ciao for now,
