Is it the Weekend Already?
I decided, kind of at the last minute, to have a small Christmas dinner at my house, with some family who lives around.
Christmas Morning 4 am, my oldest daughter wakes up, throwing up. So I spent all morning in the bathroom with her. She felt a little better by 7:30ish, so we opened Christmas presents and had a good time, I mean really you have to be EXTREMELY sick to not want to open up Christmas presents!
So at this point, I think, should we have Christmas dinner? I am pretty sure the sudden illness was induced by the over consumption of sugar, cookies, and egg nog. SO I still host Christmas dinner.
It went really well, everyone seemed to be having a good time. My oldest daughter still was not feeling great, but everything went as well as to be expected.
The day after Christmas I get sick, my youngest two get sick. My husbands Aunt Lisa gets sick, my Uncle Joel gets sick, my brother... sick. My brother-in-law had to be hospitilized because he was SO sick. And this is not just a little sick, it is 18-24 hours of misery!
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! Aren't you sad I did not invite you to Christmas dinner?
So this past week, I have taken care of sick kids, being really sick myself. I did manage to take all of the Christmas decorations down. I have probably done 15 loads of laundry. In fact, I did so much laundry a pipe burst that returns all of the dirty water, so my basement flooded with dirty laundry water, yum. Additionally, we took my car to get a safety inspection, of course there was a bad ty-rod (sp), so I have been car-less for the past day, my trusty external hardrive is NOT working, which really puts a damper on all the graphic design stuff I am doing for other people... so it has not been the most fun Christmas break, but hey it could be worse....
Yes, things could always be worse!
So anyway, sorry I was absent on the blog this week!
I can't wait to see what you have been up to!
