I spent Dec. 22 - 25 in the ICU at Redneck Central General Horspital, Pill Dispensary, and Sock Emporium.  Nurses are marvelous.  I try to make mine laugh whenever possible.  They don't have enough opportunity to laugh.
When they sent me home, I was instructed to rest.  Umm.  About that...
Winter has us in its teeth and is shaking us like a rat - the wind is so fierce right now the house is making a sort of rattling hum.  Some people think it's cold outside, but it's not too bad if you're just taking out the trash.  I did put on shoes, anyway.
I want to bake something, but I don't know what.  Perhaps I shall take a nap and make up my mind in my sleep.
If I didn't have kids I would crawl under the blankie and stay there for a week.  Sigh.  I DO have kids, though, and they are so unreasonable about eating on a regular basis and having clean clothes to wear.  Double sigh.
I have a rash.  Under my arms.  It itches and burns and distracts me something fierce.  My body hates me.
Sprout is speaking so much now, and it's funny to hear her.  I love how little kids talk and make connections.  She makes me smile.
The Evil Genius has a crush.  Oh, how he will deny it, but his father gave him an iPhone for Christmas and the boy spends as much time talking to her with face-time as he does doing anything else.  It's cute.  Disturbing, but cute.
My feet have been chilly for more than a week.  What's that about???
What books are you reading these days?

I'm glad that you finally got to come home! Thank you for the holiday remembrances, BTW! Boy, those kids are really growing!

Get all the rest you can and try to grab a little extra rest! (Hard to do, I know!)

Seriously, do take extra good care of yourself! Don't want you coming back down with something!
