Well this is a Fine How do you Do!

By the way, does anyone know where that saying comes from? I certainly don't but I do remember my mother using it all the time.

Well it's Christmas Eve and I'm sitting here bundled up on the couch with a soar throat, runny nose, and other such lovely ailments . Hubby has gone off (unwillingly I might add) to join his siblings for some Christmas Merriment at the ever popular Claim Jumper restaurant. We all decided to be Grinches this year as n one was willing to do the hosting. Quite sad, don't you think? Believe me when I say, "it's a long story that you'd rather not hear." So I won't bore you with the details.
we had to cancel our plans for tomorrow's festivities at my cousins house and will be staying home. While I don't mind spreading my germs around amongst the adults I didn't want my sweet little cousin (who's only two) Sadie coming down with any of my cooties.

So I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Eve and an even more wonderful Christmas Day!

Oh NO!! Now that is something I'm sure was not on your list for Santa to bring you.

So sorry you are not feeling well. But, at least you don't have to see the people you didn't want to.

Hope your New Years is better.

I too woke with a sore throat too! My children, all but one, have had this sore throat, congestion, weezing in the lungs thing all week. Guess it's my turn. We will still be going out, to the movies, for it's my daughter's see Marley and Me! I'm so excited. Already bought our tickets online. Sorry you had to miss so much. I do hope you will still enjoy the day snuggled up with dear hubby and sweet puppies. Watch your favorite holiday movies and sip plenty of tea with lemon.

Sorry to hear you were sick! We barely eked out a Christmas dinner- I had a slight cold, but my oldest has been in bed for two days. My parents do NOT like to come over if the kids are sick- my dad is 72 and gets sick quite easily, so he's a little gun shy, but were able to stay healthy enough to have them over, mayhem as there was. I hope you feel all better soon. I'm afraid this year the cold virus is going to take alot of time to get over!
