I was thinking in the shower this morning. Random things. Rabbit trails. You know -- the kinds of things one hashes out and solves in a stream of steaming water and seemingly nowhere else.

For whatever reason, it struck me that I've been incredibly blessed to not have been sick much over the last few years. This is fortunate indeed, given the whole single parent/sole caregiver thing that is my schtick these days. So I wondered some more, thinking about why that could be. Maybe because I'm not having so much personal, erm, contact? Kissing and... stuff. Odd thought, huh? I'm terribly grateful to be mostly well -- amazing given the set of factors working against it. Still. If that's the trade-off, I'd rather have the kissing.
