Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

The Nutcracker, the Sickies, & Look Ahead

I wish I had an exciting weekend full of fun events to share today, but I don’t.

Sickness derailed our weekend and all associated plans.

Bah humbug!

Before we get to that, I do have to share a pic of us at the Nutcracker this weekend.

The nutcracker! I was moved to tears and will was bored to tears. <img src=">

Yay for a good Christmassy picture of the two of us!

Will and I were both feeling crummy toward the end of the week, but we already had tickets and plans to go with my parents so we pushed though.

Not only that, but neither of us felt sick. We just felt super congested.

While we didn’t know it or feel like it at the time, turns out we were both sick.

Awesome.

I felt bad for the rows before and behind us.

My mom and dad were also getting over a bout of yuck, so we were a row of sickies.

Coughs, sniffles, throat clearing…

We were sharing cough drops and tissues like treasured candy…

I disgust myself.

Interestingly enough, we were in “good” company. I heard a plethora of sniffles and coughs throughout the place.

Yuck!

Seriously, it’s weird. Virtually everyone Will and I both know are battling or have battled this crud.

Strangest thing ever.

Sooo yeah. We pushed through and went to the show.

If you sat in front of us and were heavily annoyed, please forgive me.

Seriously.

As an aside, the show was wonderful! I joked that I was moved to tears while Will was bored to tears. Haha

He was a great sport but bored out of his mind.

With each passing hour, Will and I both felt worse and worse.

When we left that night there was no doubt in our mind we weren’t just congested.

We were straight up sick!

So yeah. This weekend was entirely spent parked on the couch. 

I managed to go to the gym Saturday, trying to convince myself I wasn’t that bad.

Laughable.

After I was humbled by a poor workout, I acknowledged my need to rest and take it easy.

So that’s what we did. I started Christmas cards, I did some online Christmas shopping, watched church online, and rested.

We set up a nice little sickie “build your own tea station” and surrendered to the sickness.

Sickie station: build your own tea

We surfaced to feed dogs, make tea, and go to the bathroon.

Glamourous, ya’ll.

I had plans of getting some serious stuff done this weekend, and am sad most didn’t get done. However, I’d much rather recover some this weekend than start today feeling awful.

It’s a jam packed week, and I can’t afford to be out for the count.

No exciting weekend to share (do I ever?), but one full of rest and hopefully some recovery.

Here’s a look at what’s coming up this week:

-A simple soup
-My Christmas game plan
-Thursday things
-Reminders for the rough days

Thanks for checking in today. I’m off to make another cup of tea. Check in tomorrow!
