I Slept through the New Year!

Wow my first post of the year, you would think it should be grand or something but really not a whole lot has been going on around here lately.

Hubby came home super sick last Monday and by Thursday I was into the flu full blast, thankfully he was on the mend. New Years Eve came and went in a drugged out blurr of load noises and shaking dogs, as I was snuggled down in the covers and asleep by 10pm. Even though I was awake every few hours as the drowsiness of the nyquil wore off, I still missed everything. By mid New Years day my fever finally broke, that truly was a relief. There is just something about a fever that just zaps all energy from your body and just trying to lift your arms is exhausting.

Well the cloud has lifted and I can sorta think now. Although thinking might not be such a great thing, cause there is a mountain of paperwork waiting for me on my desk. Yes I pushed it aside just for you, temporarily. Tax season is such a drag! Then there is the cleaning out of my desk and preparing it for the new year, categorizing, collating, filing away. Yes, I'm a freak.

I've been super busy trying to get blanket #3 done (except for the days of being sick), looks like I might get it finished in the next two weeks. Yippie! I think I will be taking a break from crocheting for awhile, other things need my attention.

Surely yall have noticed I haven't been posting any pics on my other blog, well that's cause I haven't been anywhere. Seriously, the last time I was away from the house was Christmas day. I seriously don't have anymore new photos to show. Sad, I know. I think this Sunday I'm going to hijack hubby's new ride and go somewhere... anywhere! I am truly sick of being confined. I can't count how many times I thought of just going for a walk, but I am allergic to the cold weather. LOL! THAT IS WHY I LIVE IN TEXAS!!!! Or so I thought. LOL!

That is all for now, time to stop staring out the window and get some house work done. Yall have a good day!

Thanks for the post. I haven't done one since the Monday before Christmas! I've got to get back to it.

Today I am going to dress warm and wander about the yard a bit. I've been hiding from the not-warm-enough temperatures in the warm house, but today is sunny, so I'm going to find something to take a picture of outside. I'm trying to do the picture a day project this year, but with the added caveat of seeing things at an angle different from I what I would normally see. We'll see how that goes.

Glad you are going the right direction, as far as sleeping through New Years I think it becomes more common as we did the same thing, yep shaking dog under the covers with us Ha Ha

Hijack that ride and get yourself out of the house when you can, it's good to see you my Friend.

You made me smile. How cold is it? You have another blog? I don't have new pictures either. Actually I don't even have anything to blog about but I do so want to blog. We, our household, slept through new year too but then the last time I celebrated new year was in 1989! I am glad that my teenage children were still in their room this new year.

Take care Heather.

Glad to see you and your hubby are both on the mend! Don't overdo it! You don't need a relapse!
