Why does my body fail me every holiday?
The pre-days of Thanksgiving left me laid up with a stomach bug and, now, on this week of what should be merry and bright, I've instead been hiding under a blanket with a nasty bout of fever, aches, cough and sinus mess. sigh. All that will be great to have with me in the city tomorrow and Saturday. double sigh. Here's hoping my meds kick in today and I"m full of ho ho ho tomorrow.
Aside from my physical state, I've really struggled with the Sandy Hook news. Those families. Those little kids. It's heartbreaking and I'm just so sad. Tracks of tears have found a home on my face every day since. Between my vicious cold and weepy heart, the amount of Kleenex around here is ridonculous.
On Sunday, we plan to attend a community candle-lighting rememberance and, of course, Santa arrives shortly after. I look forward to both.
