Merry *Aaa-CHOO* Christmas!

I swear there is a conspiracy afoot.

Not only do I get to have the neck, shoulder, arm, and head pain… but noooo… that wasn't enough. There had to be more. There had to be the tickley cough… to be followed by the head-full-of-snot phase that I'm now experiencing. Top it all of with my favorite… a full moon!!! Whooo-eee! You can tell we're celebrating now!

Let's hope that tomorrow I can stop blowing my nose long enough to cook the turkey, make the coffee cakes, bake the pies, clean the house, wrap the presents and stuff the stockings. Oh, wait… "Santa" does that, right?

 Merry Christmas to you and yours~~ I'll see you on the other side!

  1. Oh you poor thing, I hope you feel better soon. Maybe you should have a nip of Santa’s spirit to clear your nose/head!!
    Merry Christmas my friend. I hope your day is filled with snot-free joy-ness!!

  2. Hi Sue, I hope you feel better tomorrow. It’s terrible to be sick on the holidays. I wish you and your family a very merry christmas.

  3. Girl, what is wrong with your immune system? Sorry I haven’t been around for awhile. It’s not you; I have not been around much for anyone. 🙂 Work and all.

    I hope you feel better. Just have a few drinks, use some Afrin and you will be right as rain. Is it snowing there?

    Oh, and happy birthday! Didn’t know I missed it. Sorry about that..

  4. Yuck….if it’s anything like the cold I had a month or so ago, I feel for you.

    If you weren’t already up to your eyeballs in ‘holiday cheer’ I’d advise making some homemade chicken soup. That always works for me…..

    Oh, and Merry Christmas and all that…..

    The other side? The other side???!!! Don’t goooo…oh, you meant on the other side of Christmas…whewwww!! 🙂

    Merry Christmas, dear friend!

  6. Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. I’ll send you a natural remedy that you might want to try. Otherwise, wishing you a Merry Christmas and memorable family moments!

    Love you!

  7. Seems like everywhere I turn, I’m hearing about people who were sick or really didn’t feel well over Christmas. My youngest is working a runny nose I’m sure I’ll be dealing with soon.

    Hope you’re feeling better, and that you had a nice Christmas!

  8. I have the same tickly cough that’s a remnant of strep last week – I wish the cough would go away! Hope your XMAS was a good one.
