Good morning…. it is late morning, this is true – but still morning.
I woke up late feeling like I had been hit by a large piece of equipment. (I will give you a moment to wrap your mind around that visual.)
I am sniffly, headachey, coughing, weary…… and this is day three. Seriously…. I am tired of talking about it and just wish I felt wonderful again.
Anyway, Brad (Navy Son) was over for dinner last night and that was fun. We celebrated his birthday (which was the 16th) and hung out. He and Chance took the snowmobile out for a spin which he enjoyed as he now lives in Florida. Today he is out ice fishing with a buddy.
Justin, College Son is currently in Florida with a friend at their beach house. He will be hanging out there on his school break and flying back into Minnesota on Christmas Eve.
I am here at home with my sniffles and Chance (Kinship Partner) who is now staying with us. I am reading and well… so is he, but I am not as into character as he is. I am reading Linger (I know – its about time right?) and he is reading A Long Way Gone by Ishamael Beah, about a boy soldier.
Ok… off to write a book review and hopefully later today if I am feeling up to it I am going to make Biscotti.

You should have taken Zicam!
Seriously, it really minimized the cold symptoms for me. Hope you’re feeling better soon.
OOH wish I would have known that sooner Laurel! 🙂 I was up town this morning and am on Dayquil and Theraflu.
I’m so glad to hear your son made it home 🙂
Thanks Rebecca – me too 😀
I hope you start feeling better — having a cold or other sickness over the holidays is such a pain in the neck!
Totally agree Kim…. I have so much to do this week and this is just slowing me down. 🙂
It stinks that you are sick at the holidays! I hope you will feel 100% better by Christmas Eve.
How are you enjoying Linger? I just read it last week and I really liked it.
Hope you have a fantastic time with your family!
Thanks Christina – I am so glad you were reading Linger too! I thought I was the last person on earth to read it. 😀
I am just in the beginning of the book.
I like Chance’s reading accessories. Way to really get into a book!
I laughed at him Jill. I have to think how I could dress to get into Linger….
Aw I really hope you start to feel better soon, wondering if my son would have those accessories would he read more lol.
Thanks Donna 😀
You never know with your son… couldn’t hurt 😀
You poor thing! The holidays are a horrible time to be sick. Hope you feel better soon…..
Thanks Julie 🙂
I feel your pain, I really do!
Also, I love the shot of Chance reading sooo much!
Thanks Amused – isnt he funny?
I am so sorry that you are feeling more than crappy. But, your boys are both going to be home for Christmas! That’s so wonderful. I am in Ireland, but supposed to be in Oman due to horrible European weather. So I am learning how to find the silver lining in situations. Merry Christmas
Thanks Helen – hope your Christmas turns out to be wonderful 🙂
Those are some funny pictures! Tis the season of sniffles. I had them all last week and it was miserable!
I thought it was funny that when I feel like I have been hit by a truck I actually have a picture of me being…. uhhh… hit by a truck. 😆
I hope you’re feeling better. I love the photo of Chance – I hope he continues to get into books that way.
Thanks Kathy I think I am on the upswing 😀
Dont you wish we all got into books that way?
No fun being sick, especially around the holidays. If you’re a tea drinker, try Traditional Medicinals “Breathe Easy” tea. I drink it whenever I get the sniffles/cough and it really helps me. It smells so good…just inhaling it will make you feel better. And take comfort in the blessings of a beautiful healthy family too.
