Is it a jinx?

Is it a jinx?

It is bad luck to comment on good luck? My daugher (11) is quite certain that I have set myself up for the flare up of the century.
My last flare up was after my trip to Vail. I can’t really say what caused it. It could have been the plane ride both directions, the long car rides, the tension of watching the road, the map, the scenery, the late nights (girl talking), the ummmm (bar hopping), white water rafting, stone massage… (I am sure there are more things to attribute to it).
It is like I had said before – I am not out of a flare – can’t tell you what is the trigger – the weather has been exactly what my body looks for to have a flare up, the stress level at home – has not decreased by any means. Whatever the reason – I am still counting my blessings.
My adventure this weekend is to take my girl scouts camping. Not just a quick nearby getaway. We are traveling via van ( I opted out of the bus) – 3 hours to our site ( only 4 girls, 2 adults). The campsite is the most rustic campground we have camped. Nothing is close to get to – lots of hiking. We will be horseback riding, kayaking, did I mention lots of hiking. If the girls get their wish – we won’t be in a cabin but a tent and they would love some terrible storm or tornado to occur.
I obviously can’t take my meds that I would take if I needed to get my deep sleep. I need to be able to be alert for the girls. I am excited about this weekend. I get to spend time with my daughter (and 3 great kids), one of my best friends and just be away from it all. It is never an easy weekend – usually come home dirts, sore, tired – having dealt with the elements of the woods and the drama of pre-teen girls.
So even if I am going to Jinx myself – I am saying it “I HAVE NOT HAD A FLARE UP SINCE JUNE 3rd!!!!!”
Keep your fingers crosses, wish upon a star, blow an eyelash, toss salt over your shoulder and say a prayer…..
Ok.. Maybe I might be worried a tad about jinxing it.. knock on wood.
