Why It's Not Good to Be Sick in a Small Arctic Village

-no matter how sick you are, you will probably still have to go to work because there's nobody to take your place

-everybody you come in contact with (from your students to the store cashiers) will also be sick, exposing you to more and more germs

-your bronchial cough will be mistaken for smoker's hack

-if you and your spouse are both sick and uninterested in cooking dinner, your delivery options are limited to frozen pizza you carry home from the store


Steve and I both have very bad colds. It's sad. My apologies for the blog silence, but it's probably better for everybody if I don't write long posts...

Awwe, I'm sorry you're not feeling well! : ( I hope both you and Steve begin to feel better soon!

Get well soon. I miss you.

And here I thought living in the Arctic would've put more hair on your chest than to complain about a little cold. I, on the other hand, NEVER complain when I'm sick, right Jaz?

...but seriously - hope you guys feel better.
