IT'S GETTING TOO CLOSE TO CHRISTMAS
AND I AM IN A PANIC - EVEN MORE
The first problem this year was that Thanksgiving
was a week later and I never realized that until
it was too late. I pretty much save anything that
has to do with Christmas until after Thanksgiving.
Really paying for it now.
to add insult to injury I came down with
a nasty upper respiratory thing the day after
Thanksgiving and I am just starting to feel
a little better. Just about coughed myself to
death and that is so exhausting.
Avery came down with a nasty stomach
virus last Saturday, which
he then gave to Paul and then to Hollis.
Hollis was really, really sick. She ran a
high fever in addition to all the other
horrible things. Couldn't have happened
at a worse time because of what she
had going on at work. There was no
way she could take care of Avery, so
Lehmer and I brought him home with us
on Monday. He's two, remember, and
nothing gets done with him here, except
playing with and loving this little boy.
So - no decorating, shopping, cooking,
even thinking about these things out
of the question.
While he was here, he got a terrible
upper respiratory infection and had
to go to the DR this am. I'm
just a little stressed. At least, he is now on
medicine, so he should be better soon.
Usually I try to offer you some more "goodies" for
gift giving or for yourself, but I'm behind on
that too. Here are a few things you might be
