Oh, am I grateful for crockpots and canned soup. I’m thankful for Publix having a soup bar. I’m grateful for all of this because I am sick. I honestly can’t remember when I have been this sick. I really, really, really don’t want to be sick for Christmas.
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks full of last minute shopping, family gift exchanges, school programs, and just generally trying to get stuff done. I’m not sure how I managed to get sick, since mom is usually the last and not the first. Who did I come in contact with that no one else in the family did? Did I some how manage to run myself so ragged that my immunity was low? I really don’t know, don’t care.
I’m just over it. Planned so hard to get everything done before the kids went on break, so I could enjoy the 2 weeks off. I’m home and enjoying not having to be anywhere… but super sick wasn’t exactly part of that plan.
None the less, I am grateful. For kids that tuck me in under my blanket, a husband that brings home medicine and will order take out for dinner. Grateful that no one has complained about the stuff not getting done while I am resting.
So, for all my sisters in Christ bogged down the sniffles, congestion, etc… this too shall pass. Rest. Refuel. And be ready for the new year.
