These Final Days of 2010


After a wonderful Christmas, the sniffles started, then the headache, and then the all out chills and body aches.  Oh yes, while we were having a blizzard outside, a storm was brewing inside the house too.  My little boy started with a bad cold; then, my husband complained of flu like symptoms, and now I have the flu.  So, the three of us for the past few days have been shut inside our germ infested house wallowing in self pity. 

To be honest, we have a lot to be thankful for...neither my husband nor I have to go to work this week.  It's just that we feel tired, miserable, lazy, and overall, beat-up.  My poor little boy, proclaiming "Outside!  Outside!" every few minutes is wrestling with cabin fever, while I'm wrestling with a dirty, disorganized house that needs some desperate TLC.  For now, my only hope is that this bug leaves our systems soon so that we can begin picking up the left over pieces of 2010 and start the New Year with a brand new, clean, organized slate.

In honor of Wordless Wednesday, which I know I've already said more than my fair share of words, here are two pictures that describe this week's events.  (No more words...I promise.)


  1. I hope you feel better soon! There's nothing worse than being sick on your vacation, and then having to take care of a toddler in the mix. It looks like you guys got hammered out there - is that a downed wire I see?

  2. Praying you all get well soon! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

  3. Wow Look at all that snow! We are fighting colds in our family too, yuck! Hope your doing well and feel much better by the end of today.

  4. Oh no! I am so, so sorry that you are all under the weather. Be thankful for the time to get well, and hope you are feeling better by the new year!

  5. I hope you guys recover quickly! Happy New Year!
