This May was pretty much defined by illness. Marcella brought home lots of new and interesting bugs from daycare, and liberally shared them around. We all took turns getting sick until the end of the month, when we ALL got sick at once. It’s been a simultaneously busy and lie on the couch a lot kind of month.
It wasn’t all bad though. When we weren’t nursing each other we enjoyed some visits from family and friends, ate some yummy food, and spent a lot of time outside. And on the 31st I got a GREAT gift- my permisso di soggiorno- permission to live and work in Italy for the next 5 years. What a relief!
