Alive...maybe

Well, that pesky cold I've been battling finally won out yesterday and I ended up going to bed last night at 8:30, which as of late, is very very early for me. It felt wonderful. I slept an entire twelve hours straight and thought surely when I woke up I would feel better, right?

WRONG! Today has by far been my worst day yet. I feel like I'm operating under a cloud of sinuses and have forgotten what it feels like to be able to breathe through my nose. Cough drops have tasted glorious and I've already gone through an entire bag...my preferred flavor is Eucalyptus. Oh well..it happens I suppose and atleast my body picked a cold, rainy day to decide to give up. I'm still in my pajamas and that is suprisingly fun sometimes.

Plus being sick is forcing me to get some much needed things done around the house. I happen to be one of those people that like to be busy ALL THE TIME and never stop, so a forced break is always welcomed, although I'm not quite sure I really know how to take a break. I've paid bills (why is this always so miserable?), balanced my check book, started dinner in the crockpot, organized our filing cabinet and am about to put the finishing touches on our Christmas decorations - oh and I also worked my normal job (from home) for four hours this morning. I'm thinking a nap and a hot shower may be on the list for the next four hours.

I was hoping to end my night cuddled up on the couch, watching my favorite Christmas movie, Love Actually. Turns out I must have loaned it to someone last year and I can't find it. **Instant Panic** This is one of my all time favorite movies and I tend to try to force everyone I know to watch it hoping they will love it as much as I do. The down side of this is now I have no idea who actually has the movie so I'm hoping to possibly talk the hubby into going to the store to purchase another copy. I must have this movie to make my holiday season complete!

And with that I'll sign off for now - hoping to read up on some of the blog postings I missed yesterday and then decorate the tree. If I'm motivated I'll try to post some pics later on...

Hope everyone's weekend is going well!!!
