uuuuuuugh gift that keeps giving


gift that keeps giving
sinuses filled with concrete
throat has Christmas fire

I guess this will be the last year we host Christmas at my house. After the Christmas morning pukefest I don’t blame anyone for never wanting to come back. And just to add a cherry on top, everyone now has some kind of cold/sinus/flu thing that is pure evil. And when I say everyone, I don’t just mean my family – I mean the extended family. Everyone who has come in contact with me and my child is now achingly ill. It’s a little something I like to call the sick degrees of separation. a-haha.

Would you like a side of Theraflu with your Christmas Plague?

Ugh. My sinuses haven’t been clear for over a week. I’ve had a headache for just about the same amount of time. My throat STILL hurts. At least the coughing has stopped.

And the wee one decided that last night was a night that needed to be filled with kicking and crying out and generally not sleeping. At 5 am, I gave up and just got up with him. He played with Christmas toys, I blew my nose.

Could there be a more auspicious beginning to the New Year?

Oh yeah, another one of my friends, and two cousins are pregnant.
