Yep, that's what I feel like folks! It started out weeks ago actually. First the kids got sick and had fun passing it back and forth to each other. FUN. Nothing major, really, just very mild colds. And then Dave got sick. Well, what do you expect when you work on top of buildings as an HVACR Tech. He has a HORRID cough. Now back to my little ones. Leslie brings all sorts of wonderful things home from school, artwork, funny stories, germs. And so finally she was hit a little harder with a cold. She is on the upswing now but still has a very icky cough. She promptly gave Davey her nasty cold and he, in turn, has given it to me. We are an attractive bunch let me tell you. Snot, slobber, coughing. You can imagine! MERRY CHRISTMAS! HO HO HO! ACHOO!
That aside, we are late getting into the Christmas/Giftmas/Yule spirit this year! We have yet to put up a tree. Something I am planning on doing tomorrow. Things have been crazy with Dave's new job, a move looming in the very near future, and of course, colds passing back and forth! We did manage to get out last weekend to shop a little bit and I'm hoping to finish up this Saturday. Wish me luck, PLEASE! I need it. I'm not really stressed about the holidays. I don't think there's really a point to getting all stressed out anyway. It takes all the fun out of everything. And gifts are just things. Yes it's nice to get gifts, it's very nice to give gifts. But it's just a physical way of saying "I think you're special" and sometimes telling that to someone face to face is far more special than giving a gift that you trudged through the mall to get! So remember that people! Seriously, Merry Christmas, Happy Yule, Merry Giftmas. Whatever you celebrate, enjoy your holidays!
Thank you that is all!
