I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families. I'll tell you right now, nothing sucks more than getting the flu on Christmas day. All that built up anticipation for turkey, stuffing and pie, and then phfft. Can't stomach a forkful. What a disappointment.

But we have Take Two (a.k.a. Christmas with my family) tomorrow and so far not a stomach pain to be felt. Please, oh please let me enjoy a turkey dinner.

Right now, it's 1:55 a.m. and I just finished planning music for Sunday. This is the first moment this week I have had the time to sit and plan out service. I am running on a serious sleep deficit. I was able to finally fall asleep around 3:30 a.m. this morning, thanks to a cranky baby. The night, or should I say morning, before was 4:00 a.m. I'm TIRED! And we have Christmas with my family tomorrow which means I have to be up early to get ready, load the gifts and kids in the car and get to my parent's by 9:00 a.m. I'm just glad they only live across town.

I don't think I'm making much sense right now and I've dosed off twice at the computer. I'm shutting down and am going to try and catch some rest before the mayhem of tomorrow.

I want to take a minute right now to thank God for coffee. Seriously, I don't want to know where I would be without it. How crazy do you have to get before they put you in a padded room? And would it really be so bad? Your meals brought to you, unlimited time to SLEEP, coffee all day. There's pills to wake you up, put you to sleep, pick you up, or calm you down. Actually, that sounds like a real nice vacation. Where do I sign up?

You're alive!!! Yay!! I was just thinking about you yesterday, and here you are.

I'm sorry you were sick, and that you're sleep-deprived. Hang in there, a New Year is coming your way.

Awww, that's a BUMMER to be sick on Christmas. I'm glad you're feeling better now, and that you get the second chance at a good Christmas dinner! You get a do over!

My son got sick a couple of days beforehand, and THAT was a bummer. Anyway, hope you have a great do-over, and a Happy New Year!

When you figure out where to sign up, would you let me know? ;o)

Hope that you are feeling better!

Happiest of New Year wishes! :o)

Let's plan a girl's weekend at the local asylum! Wouldn't that be fun? On second thought, let's just plan that girl's cruise. :o)

I'm so sorry you were sick for Christmas, but glad you're feeling better now.

Happy New Year!!

Marianne - I'm alive, but I wouldn't say 'living.' ;-) Happy New Year and I trust you had a wonderful Christmas

Becky - What makes it worse is we just had the flu go through our house a few weeks ago. I kinda felt like I had already done my time when it for a second round. Blech. But my do-over was great and I've been making up for lost time. ;-) Stretchy pants, here I come!

Lisa - You'll be the first one I call, tee-hee.

Jenster - I'll bring the coffee, you bring the drugs. ;-) LOL! Actually, a cruise sounds great and they serve all kinds of chocolate therapy. :-)

Hope you got to enjoy the second meal and Happy New Year to you and your family.

That stinks! So sorry you were sick. I had the sniffles, but I was able to eat turkey.

I hope your do over tasted wonderful!

Happy New Year!

"Stretchy Pants here I come!"

ROFL! So true. That'll be me tonight at our Family New Year's party.

Happy New Year!!

Jenster said...

Psssst. I don't mean to be bossy or anything, but tomorrow will be a week since your last post...

Hope 2008 is great! (I rhyme!)

Travis - I had a great 'second Christmas' with my family and enjoyed all the food waaaay too much. Those stomach pains were of my own making. ;-) Hope your New Years was great!

Deb - I hope you're over your cold. Being sick over the holidays is miserable. HNY!

Becky - I hope you had a wonderful New Year's celebration with your family!

Jenster - Ever consider writing poetry?? LOL! And why, WHY, aren't there 30 hours in a day?!
