Christmas Recap 2009

Well this year tops last year in being the SUCKIEST Christmas ever. Can we just say that being sick and coughing your head off all day is NO FUN!?! Here's my Christmas Re-cap

Tuesday-shop until I drop, finally get everthing done.

Wednesday-work, home, Dr.(told I didn't have bronchitis and given some crappy cough syrup that didn't work), baking

Thursday (Christmas Eve)- go to mother in laws. Christmas Eve wasn't TOO bad. Except that my brother in law was pretty much plastered and pissed my husband off by making a liberal comment. Heaven help anyone that doesn't share his own views! I think politics should be illegal to talk about. At least at work, home and family functions. ;O) My father in law had fun talking my brother's ear off. They love fresh meat to tell all their stories too. Me? I've heard them so many times I can tell them myself.  I made the lasagna (that's one of those words I will NEVER spell right on the first try) . Brother in law made a salad. We had plenty of food and were sufficiently stuffed when we left.

When we got home I wrapped everything I had to wrap and after the kids went to bed I did the Santa thing.

While the hubby did this:

When I was done he suddenly popped up and said I should have woke him up to help me. I was like hmmm well I've been doing it on my own for 15 years I think I can handle it!

I ended up on the couch not too long after I went to bed. Coughing is a bitch. I hate her. So I was sleeping on the couch and I heard some noise and Melissa  and Trevor were up inspecting their presents with a flashlight. SO SO CUTE. Eventually I was like um what time is it?


I told them it was way too early to be up so they climbed up on the couch and snuggled with eachother. I wish I would have got a picture but I was way too tired to get up. I think it was around 7 or so when everyone woke up for the 2nd time.

Scott bought me a garden hopper stool thing. (no that's not me, I wish my waist was that small!)

After we opened presents we headed over to my brother's house where we had bagels and donuts and cough syrup and used the inhaler 5000 times. As the day went on I just felt worse and worse. At one point I went upstairs and laid down for a bit. Not sure if I actually slept or not. The day went by pretty quickly even though I was dying. We didn't eat dinner until after 8. By that point I just wanted to eat so we could go home.

My kids all enjoyed Christmas I think! My mom bought Trevor this color change Hot Wheels thing and he's been playing with it ALL DAY today. Melissa got some DS games and a cell phone so she's been busy with those. Her friend also got her first new phone and they have been texting back and forth all day today. We got Jessica a new bed. She has been sleeping like a gypsy with her mattress on the floor for the last year. It's nice to see her with a normal bed now!! That took the hubs awhile to put together. TG he did it, I think I would have had to hire someone if he wasn't here.
My little adorable niece had on the CUTEST outfit. Isn't she just too stinking cute!! And she was sitting in the little bumbo seat and OMG I could just eat her up!!

I hope she doesn't get sick :(  Eventually we went home and I went straight for bed. I got up at my usual coughing hour of 2 am and rearranged my farm on farmville for a few hours. Eventually tried to sleep a bit on the couch..

Saturday-I got up and called my dad. We were supposed to go to his house and do Christmas with them. 

At 9 I decided to go to the Urgent Care. Three hours later I finally got back to a room. But not before stepping on the scale and confirming that Yes, Julie, you are a total fat ass. The nurse was asking me all these questions about my last menstral cycle and I was like umm last month and she was all what day and I was all I don't know. Seriously I'm dying here and she wants to know when the last time Aunt Flo came to visit? I'm pretty sure that has nothing to do with my coughing. I was so glad when the Dr. finally came in and man was he a hotty! He said right away that I had bronchitis and prescribed a bunch of stuff for me.
Not too long after I came home my dad came over and dropped off a PRIME RIB dinner complete with my favorite pie. I think that was about the nicest thing ever. I need to make them a thank you card. Although I should probably wait until I'm not sick.

Well since I've been sick, my house pretty much still looks like this
only with more shit thrown on top! Here's hoping that I  start feeling better soon.

Wow! What a week you've had! Bronchitis? Yep, that sucks. But Prime Rib on the other hand...

...where was I, oh yes, Christmas. I spent Christmas Eve wrapping presents until the wee hours of the morning too. Why I don't get it done earlier I don't know!

I hope you get better girl!

(No, my husband's nipples are not pierced anymore, he kept them in for under a year! But no scaring so thats good :o) LOL)

Wow- that basically sounds like my Thanksgiving! It's been how many weeks since then and I still have the cough- but it's not nearly as bad. I don't feel like my lungs are working their way up and out anymore. But now? I've got this bizarre sore throat that comes and goes. It's like every other day it's really bad and then the next day, nothing. Weird.

Retro Girl said...

Sorry you were sick! Hope you're feeling better. Despite some of the negatives...looks like you all had a nice Christmas...
Don't worry I think everyone's house looks like a bomb went off...I know ours does! (Now I have 10 million More little tiny toy pieces of crap to step on that send me screaming/cussing thru the roof! LOL)

Glad you didn't cough your head off or hawk up a lung! There's hope!

Sounds like the kids had a great Christmas and that garden stool thing looks pretty nifty!

Merry Christmas! and Merrier After-Christmas. Get Better!
