On the up-swing

1st: Mark is battling a bad cold like Matt had a week ago. He is running a slight temperature with the usual yucky stuff a cold brings. The croup is done and we'll move on soon enough. But we are all rested and back to sleeping well at night.

2nd: Chicago Bears are in the NFC Playoffs. "BEAR DOWN, CHICAGO BEARS!!!!"

3rd: Steve and Matt are home because of MLK. Very nice to have an extra "weekend day".
