Well, another week has started! I can't believe how fast this month is flying by - just 14 1/2 days until Christmas! Wowza!
I'm not going to gloss over my last week folks....I pretty much failed on all of my goals. The cold I have had since before Thanksgiving completely relapsed last week and it took pretty much all of my strength just to get through what had to be done in a day. It was pretty sad feeling so weak at such a young age. And when I wasn't weak I was too busy coughing my life away. Ugh! The only good news is that my appetite was way down for most of the week. For some reason food just didn't sound good at all. And on top of that (TMI Alert!!) brushing my teeth at night seemed to cause a coughing spell that was so bad that I lost half my dinner every night for almost a week. That probably helped my over-all weight a little too. You take what you can get sometimes.
Soooo.... it's a new week with just two weeks until Christmas and I am finally feeling better! I am going to make the most of it - while also making sure I do whatever I can to build my immune system up. This being sick stuff is for the birds! And I know that our oldest daughter will most likely bring some sort of bug home with her from college. Goal in life: make sure I don't get whatever it is!
Also on the agenda this week since I have been so sick.... finish decorating the house, finish buying gifts, wrap gifts, get our Christmas cards/letters in the mail and start making cake balls. Should probably also mail out of town gifts now that I think about it. And somewhere in there get the house completely clean! Just too stink'n much to do. No matter, I can and WILL get back on track in taking care of myself!
And with that.... I have surprised even myself by posting TWO blog posts in one week! It's a record Sparkies!
With help like this, how can I not get my decorating finished??
