First of all, happy holidays to everyone!!! So for the last few weeks, I've been scrambling to finish some last-minute Christmas shopping, putting in long days at work and then rushing off to hit the stores. Check-out lines and wrapping paper and ribbon and lots of money spent on the ones I love(including, of course, each animal). Busy busy busy! All this busy hasn't done me any good apparently, and on Christmas Eve hints of a cold or something were coming on. What I thought were allergies had been hitting me for about a week, but until Christmas Eve I felt fine. But then the sore throat start creeping in, and the coughs, and the congestion, and the general icky feeling. Yippee....by Christmas morning all I wanted to do was bathe in Vicks Vapo Rub, stick a straw in some NyQuil, snuggle up in front of a fire place and sleep it off for a week or so. But alas, visits with all of the family(on mother and father's side, future sister-in-law's family, AND boyfriend's family) had to be made, gifts had to be passed around, etc. So here it is Christmas night and I'm fixing to suck down some NyQuil and hit the sack. Saturday I go back to work, sick or not, and the the holiday events will slow down...until the first week of January, when I have 3-4 family and friend birthdays. Lol! But all in all, it's been a pretty good Christmas with me and my family. How was everyone else's??
