Ramblings of a sick girl

Y'all... I am going on 2 1/2 weeks of being sick.  Today marks day 5 of antibiotics. I have 5 more days to go but I still don't feel any better!!!  I am so exhausted over being sick.

Last night, I finished up Christmas shopping.  Now I just need to wrap everything up. Easy Peasy.

Also, I created our Christmas cards yesterday too.  For the past 2 years, I have started creating my own and sharing it with people via e-mail.  Save trees. Save money on stamps.  WINNING.

I have that cough that once it starts, it's hard to stop. It is not interfering with my sleep.  NOT GOOD.

I am wearing my new boots that my mom and dad got me for Christmas and so far, I am loving them!!!!!  Now I will make sure these go away in closet hidden so Sadie doesn't chew these up!

Thank you to all for the comments on yesterdays post.  Nice to know I am not alone.

A lot of you are participating in blogger day of silence.  I ask that you don't judge me because I am not.  I am trying to move forward with life and get back to a normal routine, because that's all that is left to do.  My moment of silence is every day when I pray.

And some of you may have heard a whole lot of arguing and bitching about the creation of said blogger day of silence and accusations that it is to bring traffic to own blog, etc.... well, I didn't really see it that way, until today in my reader this showed up "The post Blogger Day of Silence for Sandy Hook appeared first on [blog name]". Funny that it didn't show up in the blog post but in the excerpt shown next to the picture in my reader it did.  Why claim something like that when as you say "it's not about me, it's about them".  So, who cares if it showed up on your blog first? Why do you feel the need to let us know.  Yeah, you are doing a nice thing, but seriously.. get over yourself.  That sentence right there shows that you just care what people think and see what YOU did.  News flash, it's not about you, it's about everyone who is helping, whether in blog land or not.

I still have to figure out what to make for Christmas.  Anyone have some awesome recipes to share with me?  I am praying that I feel better by end of this week so I can enjoy the holidays. Ugh.

Why is it that when tragedies happen, people all of a sudden start caring more?  We should care more everyday. We need to learn as people to appreciate life in the present moment because we all know that tomorrow is never guaranteed.

My box of PG tips tea is empty. This makes me so sad.  Need to buy more.

Love life. It's the best gift God ever gave to us.

I hope you get well soon. I'm all sorts of congested right now so I feel your misery.

There is ZERO reason that someone should be taking recognition for creating and starting the silence button. That's a prime example of where you should be the quiet "hero".

I chose to be "silent" but that doesn't mean I won't read and comment on those who chose not to.

I'm totally participating in the silence day, err... By not blogging. Also, I'm not posting that I'm not blogging. That's silent, yeah? Now give me some cheers! Lol ok, this last part is joke.

I so sorry you so sick still, it took me about three weeks to get better also, and that was with antibiotic and steroids. Poor lady Giggles :(... At least you have great boots!

I'm not posting today just because I don't have anything to write about. But I am pouring my heart out tomorrow in a similar post like the one you wrote yesterday. Check it out if you get a chance!

PS - Look into a trifle bowl recipe for christmas, unless it was main dishes you are referring to! I made Chocolate by Death trifle at turkey day and it was delish!

Holy cow?! Can I send you a plastic bubble and spray Lysol all over you? I'm kidding. I hope you feel better. I took up green tea and honey last week because I had a tickle in my throat. I now have a cough :/
But as far as your cough goes...check if being sick caused asthma to flare up. That's happened to me the last two year...I got sick, then was put on an inhaler to treat asthma that I don't regularly have.

I am also silent when I pray. But I don't have anything to blog about right now, so nothing from me, but probably tonight when I paint my nails with my girlfriends. Yay!

Oh goodness, I am so sorry that you are still sick. :/

I'm not participating in the silence today and here's hoping I don't get judged either. But oh well if I do.
