Sniffle, Sniffle, Sneeze, Blow

If this blog post doesn't make sense then I apologize right now.  I had a sore throat for 5 days and I thought strep but it kept getting better until it was gone.  Goodie...I thought, I fought off whatever was rummaging around in my body, but Christmas day, WHAMMY!  The past two days I have sneezed more times than I did all year long and I don't sneeze the dainty little sneezes.  I sneeze the kind that clears out a room.  My head is throbbing, my nose is running then seizing up till I can't breathe.  OH MY GOD...A CHRISTMAS COLD!  Drat.  I laid off of workout all week last week and I'm yet again laying off this week mainly because I'm tired, my head hurts and I just feel generally lousy.  It sucks that A is here and I don't feel like spending time with her or anyone.  I haven't cooked a meal at home in nearly two weeks except for egg casseroles for Christmas morning.  I have been so busy that I think I have burned my candles at both ends till there is nothing left but the wick. 

Tomorrow I have to take Daddy to have that surgery (out patient) on his hip sore.  He has to be there at 1 and the surgery is at 3.  That means I have to go to his house, pick him up and wait, something I do very well.  Then when he is done I pray I don't have to stay with him as I have to book it to the mother-in-law's for dinner with family, especially with A before she heads back to California.  She leaves Wednesday and may not get to see her again till summer.  I hope Sis, her son or Bro can stay with him for a bit.  I really shouldn't be around him too much with this cold anyway.  I still have so much to do this week.  It is called stress!

P.S.  What do you think of the new look.  I was tired of the old one.  That's my little hiney in pink there.

Isn't it a pain...
I can't remember the last time I had a cold, and now at Christmas I've come down with one, or at least something as bothersome.
I wish you a speedy recovery, break out the chicken noodle soup !
Hope your dad's out patient surgery goes well.
Hang in there :)

Was the sore throat due to sinus drainage? Lots of that goes around here. I hope the father got home OK and is doing OK.

Happy New Year to you.
