You have all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile... Mr. Grinch!  
So, we had the AAA Electric Christmas party last night, without incident, and it went smoothly. Unlike the year that we were watched by owls. Does anyone remember that?

I do.

Unfortunately, it was very hard to enjoy myself, not only because it is the single most stressful day of the year for me, but also because I've come down with a fairly severe case of what I think (with all of the knowledge my Bachelor's in Theatre provides) is bronchitis. When I speak, I sound like a mix between Harvey Fierstein and Kathleen Turner. It's hot.

Not really.

And I'm coughing non-stop. A little while ago, after a particularly violent fit of coughing, Nolan looked at me and said, "I don't think I've ever been more attracted to you than I am right now."

I was too weak to go over there and kick him.

So, amidst the barrage of things I need to do this week, which may include but are not limited to: cooking a funeral meal at church Tuesday, a taking a meal over to a friend, wrapping nine million and four Christmas gifts, having Christmas with my side of the family Wednesday night, reading The Grinch to first graders Wednesday morning, having company all week and a hair appointment on Friday, I need to carve out some time to go to the doctor.

Ugh. Though... I like my doctor. He always makes horribly inappropriate jokes and then apologizes profusely. So there's that.

Okay. These are first world problems. Nothing I can't handle. I'm doing it. I'm going to the grocery store to buy all the food we'll need for this week. One vodka and Valium step at a time.

Happy Christmas Week, everyone. Cheers.

You, too, need to learn how to say no :P

Also, I hope you feel better, like, tomorrow, so you can get all those things done with as little stress and much enjoyment as possible.

I hope your doctor makes you laugh inappropriately and that you feel much better very soon! Better enough to kick Nolan. No one should be sick during all those cheerful Christmas chores (uggh, pardon my attempt at alliteration).

Almost forgot to say: awesome icon! <33

Awww. *hands you some virtual chicken soup*

I hope you feel better soon! (and I'm glad there were no owls this year).

That definitely sounds like bronchitis. You need to go to the doc asap and get some antibiotic. I used to have it fairly regularly and it's a right pain. Also, if not cared for properly, it will turn into pneumonia - happened to me twice.

*hugs* Hope you feel better soon!

Btw, loved your Christmas card! Your boys are so cute.

I'm sorry you're not feeling well, darling. I got bronchitis this time last year, and flying back to DC with that was not fun!

BTW, I got your adorable Christmas card! Thank you so much! It totally brightened my day. :D

Get well soon hun.

And next time, just say NO, sorry I can't do that. I've got other commitments. I've been practicing this line in front of my mirror to the stage where I can blurt it out even before someone has asked me to cover for them. :p

I am howling, Carrie! I don't mean to laugh, but this tickled me. I'm sorry you're getting sick, and hopefully it will go away before it gets worse, but Harvey... and Nolan... and the owls... Yeah, *LOL*

LOVE! x)

(at least my icon has a bit of compassion ;)
