The weekend that I became a pro at Cinderella....

I can pretty much sum up my whole weekend with these next few gifs...

... enough said....

I got home on Friday & went to lay on the couch... & it was like a ref was standing over top of me counting down... TKO... down.... over...

I'd been fighting this cold since Ricky got it last week & Friday, it landed its final punch....

I pretty much didn't leave my couch at all all weekend.

Between the sneezing till I wanted to puke, & the red nose from Kleenex from blowing my nose at least 1,000 times, I was pretty dang gone miserable.

Sadly, we STILL didn't get to our friends to do our Christmas celebration
... & I still didn't take my Christmas stuff down
Christmas LIVES ON!!!!

I even had a fever all weekend
I never get a fever.
Just knowing I had a fever made me feel all weepy & weak ... & mad...
I dont have time for this...

I will say - if I had to be sick, I'm glad it was on a weekend.

Let me find some positives of the weekend though.
.... I got to watch the new Cinderella five times. Yes. Five times!  They started showing it on Friday night on one of the movie channels we have, so they just kept replaying it - & I watched it every time it was on.  I pretty much can quote most of the movie.

... I also got a lot of God in my life finishing up watching AD miniseries that was on my DVR & the little 2 part move on Lifetime called The Red Tent.

... I also got a lot of crocheting done.  Tried a new headband that I liked.  I did start crocheting a cowl 7 times & didn't like any of them so pulled them out every time. I was getting so bad.... so I gave up & went back to a blanket I'm working on.  It was stressing me out too much.  I blame the medicine.

...the dogs loved me being on the couch all weekend.  They all took turns snuggling with me.

... my dad brought over a gift for me & stayed out on the porch so he wouldn't get sick :)  But he wanted me to have it & read the card he picked out.  It made me laugh - I needed a laugh.

I'm just hoping this fever breaks for good & the week ahead is much easier... even though I do have a dentist appointment this week. BLAH.  Bad appointment to have when you can't breath & are sneezing all the time.

How was your weekend?

Any tips for a horrible cold / sinus infection?


  1. yuck i hope you feel better! sinus infections are the worst. for me, it's lots of rest, hydrasense, lemon/honey/ginger tea and a once in a while 10-min steam with some eucalyptus essential oil

  2. Yuck! I hope you are feeling better quickly! I love that Cinderella movie! :)

  3. hope you're feeling better! not fun. and over the weekend, boo.

  4. 5 times!! whoa girl! The joys of being sick, huh?

    I hope you feel better! Totally no fun to be sick! Get well soon!

  5. Yuck, I hope you feel better soon! Sinus infections can really suck. Though the snuggling on the couch with the dogs part sounds nice.

  6. We've started using the essential oils this year to hopefully keep hubby out of the dr and off steroids with his asthma, so far it has worked thankfully. Praying that you will be feeling better soon and for your dentist visit!!

  7. Yuck!! I hope you're feeling better now!!! I definitely agree that if we have to be sick, the weekends are much better than weekdays, but it's no fun! And I LOVE the new Cinderella - I would totally binge on it if I were sick! :)

  8. Oh yuck! I hope you're feeling better soon! I haven't seen the new Cinderella, but I love the actress that plays the title character. (She's one of my favorite Downton Abbey actresses!)

  9. Feel better! I woke up this morning with a fever...I'm approaching vacation, I can't afford an illness right now! Working from home and dosing up with my voodoo meds today.

  10. Awwwww man, lady! So sorry you are sick. I had something like you two weeks before Christmas and it worst. There is something in the air because I am NEVER laid up with a cold, I usually power through but I was knocked out. Cinderella is such a great movie, the acting was wonderful!

  11. Oh no! So sorry to hear you weren't feeling well. I know so many people who are sick right now, there is certainly something going on. I hope you feel better ASAP!

  12. Oh man hope you feel better soon, nice that is was on the weekend but rough when you can't get stuff done.

  13. I'm so sorry you've been sick all weekend. Hope you're feeling better today. I have to say, I much prefer to be sick during the week, so I can take time off work if needed. I don't like being sick on my days off---that's me time to enjoy (well sometimes it's me time).

  14. Oh no! Hope you start feeling better real soon! I'm actually looking forward to spending next weekend on the

  15. Oh no! Hope you start feeling better real soon! I'm actually looking forward to spending next weekend on the

  16. 5 times?! Holy mackeral!!! lol You need an intervention, lololol :P

  17. So sorry to hear that you weren't feeling that great this weekend! I hope you get better soon - long weekend coming up for us! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  18. Sorry about the sinus infection, I have a small one myself right now. Aside from going to get on antibiotics if they are needed to get over it. My only tips are, try not to aggravate the sinus too much to reduce the swelling. Hot baths or a heating pad right on the face, sometimes work for me.
    Hope you get better soon!!!
    Oh I love that Cinderella movie too!!! FYI thanks for getting me hooked on Vampire Diaries, LOL I am enjoying getting caught up. Sadly I couldn't help it I started watching The Originals too. I only get TV time late at night, and thanks to those shows I rarely get to bed before midnight some nights, LOL

  19. Aww being sick is the worst!! I have yet to see that new Cinderella movie, but it looks so good! I love that your dad wouldn't come in - haha.

  20. Ugh going to the dentist when you're stuffed up is awful! I hope you can breathe through your nose by then! I still haven't seen the new Cinderella! I need to watch it.

  21. Bummer you had a weekend full of sickness. Hot tea and Vicks vapor rub always help me breathe a little better. I haven't seen the New Cinderella but it's on my movie list to watch. Can't wait when to have some down time. Hope you feel better!

  22. Awful cold! I have nothing but lots of sleep and drugs/ When I had bronchits and pleurisy, I just wanted to just pass out from the pain and a good bit I did. It was so bad. Nothing but relaxing and sleeping really helped.

    Girl go ahead and cancel that dentist appointment, no point in being miserable on top of being miserable!

  23. bahahaha at cinderella. i watched it on the weekend.. only once though!

  24. I'm sorry you have been sick. Hope your feeling better now. I had one year where I was really sick after Christmas and our decorations were up until February 5th! I've been watching Cinderella too on Starz.
