3 Days Left

I can't believe Christmas is 3 days away. Time is flying! Today is my first day of vacation. I began the week with a snow day on Monday which was great because I finished up shopping. Tuesday I started feeling icky, and don't you know it's sinus season again for me?? I'm sick AGAIN. Not a sinus infection this time, but something just as close. I dragged myself to work every day and how I made it through with 18-excited-kids-who-couldn't-sit-still I have no idea. I managed. And last night I crashed big time. It's almost 11am and I'm just waking up. There's this awesome sinus medicine I found (Aleve Sinus & Headache) from a coworker. I took one yesterday and it really relieved most of the symptoms for a while. I asked Kenny to go and get it for me last night and the only place they sell it around here is Meijers AND their pharmacy closes at 9pm and it's not on the shelf. It's not a perscription, but they don't put it on the shelf because kids are using it for recreation. I NEEDED that medicine last night SO BADLY. I had to settle for Claritan which doesn't help too much but got me through the night. When Kenny wakes up he will be taking me to Meijers to get the Aleve so I can function.

Other than the sickness, I'm actually really excited about Christmas!! We are having a big Christmas with my mom's family Sunday, and on Christmas Day with Kenny's family and my dad's family. So we have lots to get ready for but I'm so excited. I still feel like a little kid at Christmas time.

My main goal today is to clean the house and feel better. I guess I should say FEEL BETTER first and then clean the house. Life goes on with a messy house, right?

Once my meds kick in I can't wait to finish wrapping presents and being sneaky with them so Kenny can't figure out what he's getting. He likes to do that you know....he's so bad! Just thinking about wrapping presents and about Christmas makes me feel better already!!

I hope you feel better soon. Holidays aren't as much fun when you don't feel good. It sounds like that medicine is a life saver though. I'm gonna have to check that out. Enjoy your break.

Merry Christmas Lindsey!!!
