What a way to end a day

That picture below is a picture of two people who had no idea what was in for them just a few short hours later. Brennan had a cold, that got worse as the day wore on. What we never expected was the vomiting that would begin as we were @ Panera, continue as we drove home in the evening, spike as we tried to put him to bed WAY LATE, and continue through the night, if not in a big way - the memory and resulting coughing was enough to wake him up 4-5 times. Of course, that meant we were up too. But I was realizing just a little while ago - how you finish is as important as how you get there. We had a fun weekend with my family. It wasn't overly stressful. We enjoyed their company. They left, Brennan got sick, and somehow the only thing I want to do is sleep and it feels like I've been on the go and crazy-busy-stressed, not like I had a relaxing weekend with my family. Again, goes to show that the ending DOES matter...

The ol' "Journey vs Destination" debate. I'll settle it right now. The journey and the destination are BOTH important!

Although, if the journey involves a lot of vomiting, I think I'd prefer the vomit-free destination.

And if the destination is the dentist's office, then I'm all about the journey.

So, like much of the rest of life, it's really a case-by-case determination that has to be made by the person who is actually experiencing it.
