Happy New Year

Two days after Christmas, my baby gave to me a fever of a hundred and one.  Unfortunately, I will be ringing in the New Year with my couch, my housecoat and a nice hot cup of tea (and ringing in my ears).  I have missed three days of work, although I did go in one night, just to leave half way through.  I haven't eaten anything other than pasta or soup for four days because my throat is so unbelievably sore.  I dress in layers (like 5 of them...) most of the time due to the chills, although strip down when the fever spikes.  I can't remember the last time I was this sick.  And I'm such a baby when I'm sick.  I wimper.  I whine.  I groan.

This is not really how I planned to spend my New Year, although I didn't really have any plans at all. 

How are you planning to ring in the New Year?

Q can't wait to see the 'ball' drop at midnight.  I think he's thinking it's going to be much more spectacular than it actually is...

I can't wait for my bed.

Happy New Year.  Here's hoping that 2011 is fabulous for us all.

  1. Oh ! You are not well...Take care and get well soon. And about New year, I used to have many expectations when each new year arrives but nothing substantial happens. So I decided to leave it and just live the life as it comes.

    Take Care and a Happy New Year
