Sinus Infection. Blah.

Hey all!!

I've been fighting congestion basically since Thanksgiving.  Finally got a little worse over the weekend and went to the Dr yesterday.  Sinus infection.  So, on drugs and feeling a little better already.

But struggling with eating or drinking enough.  Just feel blah.  How do you all do when you are sick? 

Oh and not helpful to have snacks and cookies around right now.  I stayed home.  I may or may not have snacked a little today too.  However, not much, in the whole scheme of things.  One cookie and 2 handfuls of chex mix. 

I just want to feel better before the weekend.

Tomorrow we are taking my nieces to see The Nutcracker.  Can't wait!!  They are so excited.  And a granddaughter of my parents' best friends is one of the children in it.  So...even more exciting!

MIL guilted DH into going to her house for Christmas Eve.  Boo.  I just think it's a bad idea.  But, he wants to make her happy - don't we all just want our parents happy?  Anyway, I have been secretly praying for the snow we are supposed to get - and now might not get.  I need it.  Just long enough for us to not go, but then to stop so everyone else can do what they need to for the holidays.  : )  DH passed his journeyman's test this week.  We both posted it on FB separately.  All kinds of people congratulated him on mine.  A handful on his.  None of his family.  Not even his sister or nieces.  Drives me crazy.  Completely crazy. 

*oohhmmm*  *channeling some peace*

Gifts are all bought and wrapped.  Cards did not get sent out, but I think I am going to send them after Christmas.  I don't know.  Haven't decided.  Everything baked.  Ready to enjoy the holidays.  Working on some plans for NYE.  So things are good.

I'm getting a fill next week.  I'm able to eat a decent amount beyond a cup at any one sitting.  Not starving between meals, but still not feeling restricted at all.  DH went today for his - he is barely drinking.  I think he might have over done it...but we'll see and I'll let him decide.  :)  You all know how that works.  Love him.  Stubborn and all.

OK...should be able to jump back on for a bit in the next few days, but in case you all aren't around, have the Merriest of Christmases, if that's what you celebrate.  If not, have a peaceful weekend!!

Until later


  1. I hope you feel better soon.

    In laws. *sigh* Here's where I'm finally getting with that whole thing. I had to learn my CORE family is my husband and my girls. Any family outside of that is just gravy and I can't let them have a big effect on my life and my CORE family's life...especially when their effect is generally negative. There comes a time when you just gotta let it go and move on. For some, it's nto speaking to the famly at all and for others,it's just coming to a zen place where their crap won't bother you. Good luck!

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Paige - are you feeling any better yet? Hope Christmas treated you well!

    I am still unfilled - tomorrow is my 4 week post-op appointment. I am pretty sure that I will not be filled for a couple more weeks. I am supposed to be on a soft diet right now, but have begun to introduce regular foods in (in small amounts and chewing very well)

    See you around!!
