Dusting off the old bloggity blog…

*Warning* Rambling post ahead

Sorry, but I want to get that 1st-post-after-months-of-not-posting post out of the way.  It’s kind of like ripping off a bandaid.  Better to do it quick now, than to wait to do it later.

I’m going to just pretend my last post wasn’t in freaking AUGUST!  Holy moly.  I’m a terrible blogger.

I can’t believe it’s about to be 2013!  I swear it was just Thanksgiving.  For the first time ever, I actually had all my shopping done a week before Christmas and even though the sickies ran rampant in our household (see paragraph below), I managed to get all my wrapping done before Christmas Eve!

After months of being sick free, I got slammed with back to back sickie germs right at Christmas.  First, a bout with Strep throat.  Now, me and Strep aren’t strangers, but holy heck, apparently it gets worse on your body the older you get.  24hrs of antibiotics when you’re 12 means you are back to normal, 24hrs of antibiotics as an adult just means your fever isn’t 103 anymore, your body aches go away and your throat hurts a tad less than it did the day before.  After 4 days of antibiotics, I finally felt completely better.  And then, by bedtime on day 5 (Christmas Eve!), I was completely stuffed up with a scratchy throat!  A girl can’t catch a break apparently.  However, I’ve been pumping myself full of Zinc, Vit. C and D, a nasal decongestant and getting my rest.  So far, I haven’t felt terrible and I even feel like I’m getting better.  Crossing my fingers that the worst is over.

My poor girlie got Strep back to back recently so I’ll just be thankful that I only got a cold the second time around.
