2012: The Christmas That Wasn't

In case you somehow missed my Facebook posts or my shouts from the rooftop - I'm sick. I've been sick for what seems like an eternity now but really is just since Friday. I had a lingering cough for weeks which started getting worse on Friday. I thought it had just festered in to something, I'd get some quick antibiotics and I'd be good to go, right? WRONG. I had no idea it was actually the start of a new bug which I have named "The Death Bug." It starts off with a little cough, slight headache, some nose action, a few aches, you feel a little warm, and then BAM - you think you're going to die. I haven't been this sick for this long in years and years. As if that's not bad enough, poor Isabelle and Daniel also got The Death Bug. Then you know once three out of the five people in the house get it you just sit around staring at the other two waiting for them to fall. So far hubs and Henry are still going strong and I pray it stays that way!

So needless to say, we had to cancel all our Christmas plans. No family parties. No holiday meals. No yummy desserts. No endless wine (just whines). When all was said and done though the kids still had an amazing Christmas morning and for that I am truly thankful. I will be EXTRA thankful though when this horrid bug finally leaves our house.

Santa was VERY glad that "he" had wrapped everything last week!




Did Santa deliver The Death Bug to anyone else this Christmas?


  1. We escaped, but I think we were the only ones. Glad there was still some Christmas cheer to be found!

  2. We had the Turkey Day Death Bug...and it was horrible. Glad that we had it then instead of on Christmas. Hope you're well enough to enjoy some wine!

  3. Look at the smiles! Even in sickness, Christmas joy abounds.

  4. I did see on FB that you were awfully sick and that REALLY sucks. Two years ago that happened to me. We were in Disney the first week of December and I got sick while I was down there and just never shook it until after Christmas. It totally ruins the day when you're sick on Christmas.
