With all that has happened over the past week, I didn't really get to use any christmas tags. Hopefully I can get a few put in here tonight. I've been trying to get to alot of your journals, and read all about your christmas. I have seen so many happy smiling faces, delicious looking meals and cute lil pets. I still have 125 journals to read yet, but I will get to them.
I enjoyed being with my family for christmas, but I didn't enjoy being so sick. Even though I had chills, fever, sore throat, ear ache, chest congestion, throwing up and diareha (sorry) I still cooked a christmas dinner of Turkey, stuffing, baked ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, yams and apples, greenbeans, cranberry sauce and rolls. People ate, but they didn't pig out. They picked and nibbled. But we had alot of laughs watching the lil one's play and color in these huge coloring books Uncle Joe got them for christmas. They all unwrapped their gift's. Emma loves the electric griddle we got her and Dan. We got Daniel a 2 pc sweatsuit, pants and jacket and a big Thomas the Train flashlight. He loves it. Marissa got her favorites, card games, stickerbook, stickers.
When everyone had left, my house was totally trashed, dirty dishes all over the kitchen, and I was not feeling good at all. Jim went off to bed, and about 30 minutes later it was time for Rebecca to go to bed. But she had to wait. Everytime I stood up I got so dizzy. I knew what was coming, so I headed to the bathroom for another chat with the porceline god. I quickly put Rebecca to bed, went to the kitchen to make a cup of tea, and thank god for trash cans cause out it came again with no warning. I hate being sick. The only time I wasn't feeling dizzy was when I was sitting or laying down. Finally I gave up and went to bed. I'm still not 100%, but I am feeling alot better.
Today I stayed in my Pj's all day. I cleaned my kitchen, folded about 15 loads of laundry and put it away. I was exhausted after that. Jim came home and said to order pizza for dinner so, I didn't have to cook, woohooo. Emma called me earlier. She said Dan was sweating, in alot of pain and was having trouble breathing. She called his doctor and he called in a stronger pain med for Dan. Dan seemed to be a little better after the med got into his system. He had alot of trouble walking today due to the pain he was in. Tomorrow we are giving Emma a little break. Jim and I are taking Rebecca, Marissa, Daniel and Adrianna for the day and going to visit Jim's Grandmom and his parents. Jim's Mom said we're brave in taking all 4 kids, lol. But I figure Emma needs a little break. Having 3 kids at home to care for, and Taking care of Dan and she is sick herself a little breather from the kids will do her good. Besides Jim's Grandmother is 99 years old now, and who knows how much longer she will be with us, and I want the kids to get to know her. Everytime she see's them she has a big smile on her face. I will take my camera and get lots of pictures. Well, I guess that is about it for now. I'm tired and I think I'll read some email then go to bed. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and get some rest from all the celebrating this past week.
Love to all...................
