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.
only with more shit thrown on top! Here's hoping that I start feeling better soon.Pin It
