Ups and Downs

We were supposed to return to the mainland today. But yesterday we found out we'll be here for another week. "At least," as the doc put it. My daughter came down with chicken pox and can't travel until she's not contagious. Should be a week or thereabouts.

DOWNSIDE: rental car for another week.
UPSIDE: will not have to drive in a Minnesota winter for another week.

DOWNSIDE: both of us pretty much stuck in the house.
UPSIDE: said house is in Hawaii.

DOWNSIDE: child is miserable.
UPSIDE: she'd have been just as miserable in Minnesota, right?

In fact, except for the pox part, it's hard to see a downside to this.

Of all the places to come down with the chicken pox! At least you are in a gorgeous place!
