I started to feel bad earlier in the week but chose to ignore it. However, by Friday I was sure that I had coughed up a lung. Good thing I have two. I have been using every type of medicine to get better: over the counter meds, essential oils and even honey. I got a nice break today when Tasha came by to take the kids to the park. They were going stir crazy because I haven't been allowing them to go out back or out front since I wasn't able to watch them like I usually do. Tomorrow my moms caregiver plans on coming and taking them out so I can go shopping. I am so grateful for the help. I am definitely feeling better and I think that by Monday I will be back on top of things which is a good thing because I am planning a small road trip.
Jason has been hanging around a lot (he does not do diaper duty) and took all our trash to the dump today. He also ran and got me Sprite yesterday. It is nice having another adult around, even if it is just to have someone to talk with.
We are taking it easy on Christmas decorating this year. I purchased some inexpensive plastic and stuffed ornaments instead of unpacking all of our ornaments. I have a second ornament plucker who comes around occasionally......
I feel as though this year we have really cut back. Actually every year I seem to cut back some as we determine what is really important to us. We enjoy cooking and crafts. We have a crafting party planned and are making many different types of sweets. I am not even sure if the front lights will get put up. I have been looking at cheating and getting one of those lights that projects lighting on the house. Everywhere I look they are sold out so they must be popular.
How is everyone else with their Christmas decor? Are you doing more, less or about the same this year?
