I guess I have been super busy lately. Holidays and whatnot. You all know how it is. Let me think…What was the last thing I posted about? I was sick! Hmm. What was I doing around then?
Saturday before Christmas, I had a date night with Hubby. Nana took the little ones to her place and we left the teenager at home. We went to a pizza-karaoke bar. Hubby has a friend at work, that guy’s wife was a finalist in a year-long karaoke contest at this pizza place. She was actually really good! I have only ever heard bad karaoke before. As a matter of fact, all the other singers that night were pretty bad. A couple were downright hideous! but this woman was great and she won the contest! $500.!!! Made me wish I could sing.
My sister and her partner came and heard the singing with us. The bar is near where my sister lives, and far from where we live. It was cool to see her. I like getting together with her. We heckled very quietly. It was fun and funny and we laughed our asses off. Her belly is finally starting to look pregnant. She thinks she is enormous! Of course. But she is still small. I sat in her lap for a few minutes, if that helps you get an idea of how non-huge she is still.
The next day, Nana picked up the teenager and took the kids to have a picture made with her. I had a nice nap and trip to the used bookstore. We bought some books for Nana for Christmas. She wanted a whole heap of mystery series books. We got her one each by 11 of the 12 authors on her list and the first 6 in the series by the 12th author.
It was while we were out shopping that I realized I was feeling poorly. I ended up with a nasty head cold. Stuffy nose, runny nose, scratchy throat, low-grade fever, headaches from hell. I took a lot of ibuprofen, vitamin C and Sudafed. I also drank about 3 gallons of hot tea with lemon over the next few days. By Wednesday, I felt pretty human. I’ll talk about Tuesday and Wednesday tomorrow. Then the Christmas party the next day.
Thanks for your patience during my away-time. Sorry about that. It was as unplanned as it was unannounced. It is tough to figure out what to say when I have gotten myself out of the groove. Hope you all had a grand and enjoyable Holiday Season!
