My poor family has been battling the plague for a good week and I have been avoiding them because of it. Naturally with Christmas coming up, I couldn’t avoid them much longer. My younger brother was in town, we were doing Christmas Eve together, and I really couldn’t wait to share all of the fun gifts that we had worked so hard to get for all of my nieces and nephews. The plague had spread to my younger brother, my mother had relapsed, and my two youngest nephews were falling under the influence of it all. What make this story even crazier is that our family Christmas Eve turned into an episode of Maury! Like for real – do I look old enough to be a grand-aunt?!?! I don’t even think our lives are safe for reality television.
Bottom line, I should’ve skipped on Christmas this year. I am sick, over the drama, and so very happy to be functioning enough to type this.
My body aches, throat is sore, and I have an unusual amount of gunk building up in my chest. The good news is that I don’t think I am going to hit a point lower than this because my guy has been taking amazing care of me. I have practically been inhaling medicine since Wednesday evening, but was set back with the fact that I had to work the day after Christmas from 11:30 – 8:00. The voyager is closed two days a year, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I am sorry, but nobody should have to work after those two holidays (and shame on all of you who thought it would be a great family outing to visit the voyager).
Christmas is over and I am ready for 2014, but first – let me get over this stupid plague that is haunting me.
Any fun plans for the new years? Have you started thinking about resolutions? Make sure you come back to check out what I’ve enjoyed in 2013 and what I could do without in 2014.
