Tis The Season (Cold & Flu That Is)

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Merry Christmas! Mine wasn't so merry and bright. I woke up with my cold in full on sickness mode. I've had it for a while, but was feeling quite good yesterday. I even worked out for the first time in awhile. I went to my dad's for the Christmas Eve gathering and had a good time. I cried a few times and laughed alot too. Then today I woke up with the cold from you know where! I couldn't breathe, had the post nasal drip going and a cough too! Blah! We usually have Christmas morning breakfast at my in-laws and I didn't want to give this mess to my MIL who is still having heart issues and when she gets a cold it always goes to bronchitis due to her lifetime of smoking. She has quit, but the damage has been done. I spent most of my Christmas Day in bed. Dad was going to come out here to give Jack his gifts, but he is sick now too. I worry about him b/c even though my mother couldn't take care of him when he was sick she could nag him to take medicine and go to the doctor if she thought it were necessary. He stayed home in bed all day too.

I just find colds so annoying. My head hurts and my ear was hurting too, but I find the sniffling and the post nasal drip just plain annoying! Now my tummy is a bit upset too probably from the meds. Grrr! Santa brought me a new pillow which I needed and I put it right to use! I also got my stocking full of necessities. Jack (yes, my dog) gave me a lovely necklace and earrings set that was hand made by a crafty friend of mine. It is just beautiful. I'll try to get a picture of it to post. Since my MIL couldn't go shopping she got me gift cards which I appreciate. My dad said Mom bought gift cards for everyone, but he can't find them. No telling where she put them. Hope your Christmas was better than ours around here! Seems we are all sick! Maybe we will all feel better this weekend for my Dad's birthday and can all go out to eat. Merry, Merry Christmas!

    I am so sorry! Do you ever get a flu shot? Everyone around here had it, but this year I managed (knock on wood!) not to get the bug. Take care, and feel better. You are sure due for things to turn around. I'm glad Jack took care of you! And thank you for sending me hugs and kisses from him! I'll take dog kisses any day!
