& another weekend where we didn't get much accomplished AT ALL.
I'm getting nervous. Time to break out the alarms & wave the white flag. I'm slacking on Christmas.
This weekend, I have an excuse. Not a fun excuse, mind you - but an excuse.
A sinus infection hit me - HARD. & then got Ricky on Sunday.
& apparently is attacking everyone around the area lately.
Friday, I was doing OK. Made it through work, even though by the time I left work, my voice was about on the same scale as Barry White... hey, baby!....
& my usual thing on Friday is to stop for grocery shopping. Ricky called & asked me if I was going, to which I told him, all I wanted to do was get home. No grocery shopping this day. We have enough cans of black beans & rice to last for awhile.
& actually Blue Apron was delivering on Saturday - only because I forgot to cancel it for the week, but God works in mysterious ways & I actually loved my groceries showing up on my front porch Saturday. High Five to you God!
But I got home & Ricky followed right behind me & look what he had for me.... a hot tea with honey.
Ahhh... he loves me.
I didnt care about anything at home. Wrapping, nah! Cleaning, forget about it! Feeding the dogs - well, you gotta do that or I have a set of 3 pairs of eyes giving me the stare down that I feed them or they'll eat my face in the middle of the night... so I did do that...
but other than that - I gave up on life.
Except life to me requires yarn & needles... so I did ended up watching The Vampire Diaries & finishing a little project I was working on.
Isn't that so cute? I stitched the ends together so it stays in one piece ... its so warm & comfy. I love the color too - such a sucker for anything gray anymore. I actually fell into this by accident because I ran out of yarn but I'm going to write up how I did it & make some more. HAPPY ACCIDENT... (my MSM gang will appreciate that one)
I was so thankful for sleep into Saturday... except Ricky had to work... which ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS means I get up when he leaves. UGH. I guess its the 2 becomes 1 things in the ultimate form. If he has to work, I have to be awake.
That's OK - I had some stuff I needed to do around the house - even though at this point, I still was struggling to breath.
But I did wrap some gifts, I did get caught up on some things. Not cleaning, but some things.
& I had to venture down to the post office to mail more Etsy packages. YAHOOO!!!!!
I am so excited about 'adopting out' my yarn goodies. Love seeing them go to people who love & appreciate & support hand crafts/arts. Thumbs up to you!!!
Ricky got home from work & he said we needed to get our butts in gear for Christmas ....
..... & then he feel asleep.....
& took over a 3 hour nap.
So there's that.
When he woke up, he felt horrible. The sinus infection fairies hit him.
& in the mean time, I was reading posts from our bible study group about these mean fairies hitting some of them & their family. We were supposed to meet up on Sunday but in case everyone wanted to be around others with fevers & struggling to breath without coughing, we decided to reschedule.
I did try to get some things done by running down to our local Dollar Store - the only store we have near us - & ended up being there for 30 minutes because I think the whole town was there. The line was FOREVVVEEERRR long. & Ricky called to check if I was OK when I wasn't home in 10 minutes & then he asked if I picked up some stuff for our church youth food drive... totally forgot.
Sinus infections must ruin the brain.
& must make you very emotional.
I ended up watching Toy Story 3 & I've seen it before - but man, the ending this time.... I dont know what happened to me, but I sobbed like I just had to give up my own toys. It was horrible.
But on the plus side - crying does help clear out the sinuses even more.
Sunday, I was over 24 hour fever free so headed to MSM... poor Ricky? Not so much....
|He got a new contraption to help him breath|
so he ended up missing church....
I will say, I did manage to get a few things checked off the list for Christmas after church, but I'm still so far behind.
Can we scoot Christmas back a little bit?
I will say, I do have a short week this week. I'm taking off Thursday & Friday to use up my final vacation days so I'm dubbing them as "OPERATION CHRISTMAS CATCH UP DAYS"... OCCD... which is not to be confused with my OCD which can attribute to my freaking out about this all.
But at least today is technically my Wednesday... so I'm already starting the week off as a winner!
& I'm breathing a little better.
Cheers to Monday!
How was your weekend?
Did you get snow?
Please dont tell me you're finished shopping & wrapping
... I'll freak out more.
