Yes, we are starting our new year with sicknesses running through our house. We had plans to go to a friends house for New Years Eve, but Paulie started getting sick Saturday night. 🙁 Sunday he was worse and I was starting to feel sick myself, so we knew we would have to cancel for Monday night. Which turned out to be a good thing because by Monday morning I was worse and Paul was sick too, though Paulie was feeling better.
It was a quiet night but fun still the same. We played some Xbox, watched some movies and played a game of scrabble (which Paul won 🙂 ). We made it until midnight and rang in the new year with hugs and kisses all around. We stayed up a bit longer, but we were all in bed by 1:00am. It was a bummer that we weren’t feeling the best and that we couldn’t go to our friends house, but we had a blessed time anyway. It was a blessing to be with family and enjoy each others company. I’m also blessed that we weren’t so sick that we couldn’t stay up and count down to the new year.
I’m still not feeling the best today, dealing with a bad sinus headache, and Paul had to go to work even though he’s not feeling the best either. But I’m thankful that Paulie is feeling better, just a cough and Sarah doesn’t seem to have caught this bug. I didn’t get any photos taken last night, just wasn’t on my mind. I do hope to get out in the snow when I’m feeling better and get some nice shots.
I’ve also been working on my afghan though not as much as I would like. All I feel like doing is either read or work on my afghan and with a sinus headache it’s hard to do either one for any length of time. But I am resting and drinking lots of fluids, so I’m hoping that by tomorrow the headache is at least gone. Because tomorrow starts us back on a normal routine. School will start again, the house will need cleaning, the laundry will need to be done and the list goes on. And I wouldn’t mind doing any of those things, as long as this headache goes away. 🙂
