Christmas Day

Started off with a short "dream" about my mother. I don't believe they are dreams but my mom visiting me because I miss her so much. So anyways, we were in a dark house. I think it was the house we used to live in across from my grandparents, which the house is torn down now. It was just me and my mom and she walks in the room and I look at her and she is wearing the sweater I wanted to wear yesterday. I ask her if she was planning on wearing it and she says "well I can go change". Then she looks at me and says "how come we only talk in your dreams?" and I tell her "because you are gone" and she shrugs her shoulders and says "well that makes sense."

Then I woke up. I miss her so much and Christmas just hasn't felt like Christmas since she's been gone.

I spent the past week sick with tonsillitis. I felt well enough to go visit family yesterday and loved it. I loved staying home this year and spending Christmas with my husband and nephew, and not having to get on the road for once, and travelling. But mostly I loved coming home last night and just putting on the Pj's and knowing I get to rest the rest of the weekend and Cody is entertained by his own goodies from Santa. I hope everyone had a great holiday so far. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's!

My holiday diet plan

Does not consist of watching what I eat. Nope, it is really simple. I have tonsillitis. That's right. It all started Sunday night with a sore throat which turned into 102 degree fever by Monday. I spent all day in the bed and was able to only take a few sips of water while tossing and turning in my bed and being drenched in a sour sweat. Wednesday saw me wide awake early in the morning and the first one at my Dr.'s office. She saw me an hour earlier than she normally opens. They took a swab test to see if it was strep and when she pressed on the swollen glands I cried b/c it REALLY hurt! After prescribing me Prednisone, Amoxicillin and liquid Vicodin (yay, pain relief)she woke me up and sent me on my way.

How can I describe the pain of being soooooooooooo thirsty and not being able to drink water? Well, I forced hydrated myself and for every sip I took I wanted to jab myself in my eye with a knife to forget about the excruciating pain in my ear and throat. Today is a bit better. The pain is bad but not enough to have kept me from drinking like a gallon of water. What a way to spend my Anniversary today. Maybe tomorrow I can move back to foods. All I know is if you ever think that you are having an illness that is worse than usual, don't wait to go to the doctor. Especially if you have one willing to give you good meds to make you feel all warm and fuzzy. And by the way, an electric blanket is so nice when every muscle in your body HURTS.

My fever is down from 102 to 99 so I am sure by Christmas day I will be all better. Happy Holidays you guys!

I will post pics after Christmas.

I've been bad... blogging.

So I have had mad frustration dealing with a 12 yr old, puberty ridden, nephew of mine who happens to live with us. He has taken up lying as his new fav hobby. Which is always just great when it comes to school and passing the 5th grade. I know why he is acting out, I just can't type it here. So pray I don't shake him until his head pops off b/c I have all the patience of an ankle biting little doggie who's front door you have come upon.

My weight is up and down + or - 4lbs on any given day simply because I am stressed!

I had a birthday and it was muggy and rainy from that day until 4 days later. I just wasn't feeling it. Depressing enough to get old but with crappy weather it just sucks.

Christmas is in 9 days. When the hell did it become December?! We will be at the beginning of a new decade in basically, days.

Dog farts stink. Bad. My dog probably only comes around me to do this. Go away you little stinkbag!

That is all for today people, carry on.

Sorry I have been away so long

What I did find out this week is that my treadmill cuts off at 100 minutes. So for those of you who don't know your machine's cut off time, you might want to check it out because I was on a high and in a big time midstride when BAMN it just STOPPED! Good thing I am not worried about this ugly mug of mine. :D

Sorry again for not checking in as often as I should have. It probably would have given me the peace of mind that I needed. Toodleloo!
