Ringing in the new year

With Nyquil.

Happy New Year friends and readers!

When I last posted, I had just finished grouting the bathroom despite being sick. We had a party to go to that evening, which I was to cook for. And company coming this evening.

Well, as it turns out, I wised up a bit and realized that I shouldn’t be preparing food, and I was in no shape to go anywhere but bundled up under blankets due to being unreasonably cold ALL OF THE TIME.

I sent Miss Butterfly off with her dad, even though she had mentioned she wasn’t feeling so hot, and had even taken a nap, which is entirely unheard of for her.

Mr. Ink returned home from work, and I informed him of how I wasn’t going to be going anywhere, but he was free to go to the party if he liked. He said “Well, to be honest, I haven’t been feeling that well today either.” He then said “Maybe we could go look at light fixtures for the bathroom at least?” And I said “No, too sick.” Which is the point where he knew I was quite sick indeed.

He then mentioned that maybe we could paint today, since we would both be at home. I didn’t agree to it, as I figured he’d be feeling even worse today.

We rang in the new year with nyquil.

Today? It’s just…full on miserableness in this house. We are plodding around all bundled up, and nothing at all is getting accomplished. I truly hope to rally tomorrow a bit, as I need to get that grout sealed, and it would be NICE if we could finish the bathroom renovation by the end of the weekend!

  1. Sorry to hear you are all sick especially when you are so close to finishing the bathroom. I hope you can relax and warm up today, that coldness from being sick is just awful. Of course be careful and take care of yourself, this goes to Miss Butterfly and Mr. Ink as well.

  2. Oh no, what a disappointment! We had to cancel two days as I was unwell with a fever and cold but we did manage New Year although there was no way I was waiting up to see it in feeling as I did but then got woken up because there was a drunk guy trying to get into the neighbours house! I really do hope you all feel better soon and have a great 2016. x

    • Have you found that someone almost always gets sick around the holidays? It seems to happen every year for us. Though last year was a healthy one. I always wonder if the stress of the season, with the then release of stress thereafter, doesn’t play with the body’s immune system. In any case, I am more upright today and I hope you are feeling a fair bit better as well!

      • Yes, there often seems to be cancelled plans somewhere along the line and I think you may well be right, I know I pushed myself too hard before Christmas so I guess I asked for it! Yes thanks, I am feeling a lot better today. x
