Thank you all for your warm Christmas wishes yesterday! I was looking forward to a nice day of opening gifts with Wes, talking to my children and parents on Skype, and then going to some friends' home to enjoy a holiday dinner with several other families.
Then I cam down with the flu! I've been in bed since about 10:00 Christmas morning (not too long after I'd gotten up!) with fever, chills, aches, and a roaring headache. This one really hurts. I've heard that the flu is bad this year, so I'm just taking it a day at a time.
Several things I'm thankful for:
~ None of the children were here to be exposed to it and possibly get sick before the wedding.
~ I don't get this sick very often.
~ Although we had a busy schedule planned for this week, everything is something that I don't absolutely have to there or something that can be rescheduled.
~ An understanding and patient husband who is not only taking care of me, but also some of my responsibilities, such as baking cupcakes for a party for the bus children.
~ A warm bath!
Hopefully I'll be back up to par before too many days. Stay well!
