putting the vent in Advent
The Christmas season is upon us. Last Sunday we lit the first candle on our Advent wreath.
and I bought a new Lichterbogen for the living room.
That was the fun part. Here's the vent.
I'm good and sick. A week and a half ago I got struck down by the worst head cold I've had in years. I think I caught it from Boy12. He sailed right through his whereas I'm still coughing up a storm. Bleh. Just a little sinusitis and bronchitis, no strep throat or pneumonia this time. That would have been lovely. Mr. M has banished himself for the duration.
The cold is also being aggravated by the tons of dust pouring out of the upstairs bathroom while my better half is hard at work chiseling the old tiles off the walls. There's no getting away from that stuff and guess who has a dust allergy? It makes me itch all over, it makes me cough, it makes me break out into a rash. Can you imagine how cranky I am right now?
And also? I think I have plantar fasciitis in both feet. They've been killing me lately but it comes and goes and seems to switch sides a lot. Some days it's fine, some days it's awfully painful to walk. The internet told me to do calf stretches and that seems to help quite a bit. I'm keeping an eye on it.
So if you see someone hobbling along sniffling into a kleenex and hacking up a lung, that will be me. Waaah waaah waaah.
Oh well, Saturday is St. Nicholas Day. Hopefully all the chocolate I'll find in my stocking will make me feel better.
