I Think I Might Still Be Alive…

No pictures today, although I am getting close to finishing up a third of the needlepoint candies. Those are SO much fun to stitch up.

I think I’m back in the land of the living, finally. Last weekend was the Yuletide concert at church, with three hours practices on Wednesday and Thursday, and performances Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I was sick before Yuletide but I sang anyway (big mistake, laryngitis sucks). Monday I went to Disneyland for a friend’s birthday; it is so awesome at Christmas with all the decorations! By the end of the day I couldn’t talk at all and it only got worse the next two days. The little cold I’d have before Yuletide moved into my chest so I’ve been up coughing the last couple nights (2am to 3am last night). I feel better right now than I’ve felt in about two weeks, except for some lingering hoarseness in my voice. I’ve managed to take it as easy as possible the last couple nights; Tom took Luke to Cub Scouts Wednesday and I skipped choir last night since I can’t sing anyway. I have nothing planned tonight so I’m hoping to take it easy.

I got a surprise phone call from my uncle Mike (the one I visited in Washington and backpacked with in July). He’s going to be down in Riverside so he’s driving down to visit for a couple days. In the 11 years that I’ve lived in San Diego I don’t think he’s ever made it down here. I’m really excited! I don’t get to see him very often and, since it’s the first Christmas since my dad died, it will be nice to see his brother around the holidays.

Well, so life goes on, even when sick. At least I can talk again; I sure did hear about that at work this week! Most of my present shopping is done and I have ideas for most of what’s left. I’m planning to rest and stitch as much as I can this weekend so hopefully I’ll have some more pictures to share in the near future. I tried to take pictures at Disneyland because the lights were amazing but my camera is not good enough or I couldn’t hold it steady enough. Oh well!

    I’m glad to hear that you’re feeling better, Jill. I’ve had a cold the past 3 days and I’m really getting tired of it. Fortunately I haven’t had any laryngitis.

    I hope that you have a good visit with your uncle!
