I’ve been sick with the plague of a sinus infection and hacking cough for the past week, so suffice it to say, I’ve not had much time or energy to do, well, anything. After going to the doctor last Monday, only to have her say, “This is your body doing what it’s supposed to be doing, just treat/deal with the symptoms,” I returned back on Friday, having not slept for the past 4 nights due to the never-ending cough and head pressure and congestion. She finally gave me an Rx for an antibiotic then, and now after 3 days on it, I’m starting to feel human again. We’ll not even talk about the roller coaster blood sugar graphs my Dexcom has been showing me. I’m finally feeling better, but I’m beat. Exhausted. And now comes the whirlwind tour of visiting relatives and friends on Christmas Eve, then heading back home to get ready for Santa to come visit. What do I want Santa to bring to me? A good night’s sleep – really, that would be great.
True to nature, I plan to suck it up, get back up on the happy holidays horse, and ride the wave of fun about to come. It’s all I can do, and I refuse to let sickness make me miss one minute of the joy on my daughter’s face when she sees that Santa DID bring her a Wild Kratt’s Creature Power Suit shirt. I can’t wait to see which creature power she wants to pretend to have first.
For me personally, the New Year looks to bring about something dramatic. 2014, I dub thee “Year of Commitment to Change.” More on that topic after the holidays die down and I’ve recovered as much as possible from the cheerful chaos. For now, I’m signing off of blogging for a bit, and wishing you all a safe, happy, and joyous holiday season, in whatever way you choose to celebrate it (or not.)
