All day yesterday, I kept telling myself "I will NOT get sick! I will NOT get sick!"
Apparently I didn't listen.
Everything aches. I can't breathe through my nose. My eyes are on fire.
But you know something? This is actually an improvement over yesterday! So maybe things are looking up. Just to be safe, I think I should go review Danielle's very timely post about illness prevention. It is, after all, nearly December. I don't have time to be sick! One certain little sweetheart has a big birthday coming up--a first birthday! I really need to start planning for that. Darren and I will also soon be celebrating an important occassion--our eighth anniversary!
And...guess who's coming back to town?! My brother and his family! It's work related for him, but all the same, it means fun, fun, fun for me and my sister-in-law, not to mention our happy gang of children. They'll be here later today and will leave again on Sunday morning. We're thinking we'll take the kids to our city's annual Christmas tree lighting on Friday night. Carolers, hot beverages, cookies...I think they'll love it! I know I will.
On Saturday, I'm going with my sister-in-law to an annual Christmas bazaar which benefits a local womens shelter. It's been several years since I've been, and I'm hoping we can convince my mom to join us. What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with the women I love, perusing holiday crafts and goodies, all while supporting a worthy cause?
So now I'm off to finish cleaning my house and to start the rest of the laundry that, after completing four loads yesterday, I just didn't have the energy to finish last night. And I can barely wait for my first sip of morning coffee! Yesterday at the grocery store I went just a teensy bit nuts with the creamers. But what was I to do, faced with such a wonderful selection? Peppermint Mocha, Pumpkin Spice, Caramel Praline, Chocolate Mint Truffle...I bought one of each. :)
