It's Been an Interesting Christmas.

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and that Santa was nice to you all. So what did I get this year for Christmas?

The stomach flu.

Have you ever sat on the toilet and threw up in the bathtub? I have.
Have you ever pooped yourself three times in one day? I have.
I spent the wee hours of Sunday morning in the Emergency room getting an IV of fluids since I couldn't keep anything in me including water or pedialyte. It was ever so much fun. I normally wouldn't have gone to the ER, I would have toughed it out. This year however I felt that I had to go because of my other Christmas present....

I'm pregnant.

I know! We're pretty excited. And to think we did this one all by ourselves. We stopped all fertility treatments in June. I kinda feel like I should ask for a refund, but I just don't care anymore. I'm only 8 weeks along so it's pretty early, but I think the last few weeks of keeping a secret have been KILLING my mother.

So that's it.

What did you get for Christmas?

Totally Random

Today I'm feeling kinda random and can't really pull it together to post about one thing so here's a hodge podge of what's on my mind:
  • I spent a large portion of yesterday trying to remember the names of the Chippettes. All I could think of was Jeannette and Eleanor. I finally had to google it to come up with Brittany.
  • I finally got motivated to purchase and wrap almost all of my Christmas presents. How awesome am I?
  • I REEEAAAALLLLLLY want to take a nap right now.
  • Just as suddenly as the kitties started fighting to the death they stopped. It makes me nervous. Like they're plotting something.
  • While watching the Vampire Diaries last night I became very aware of how much Ian Sommerhalder looks like a young Rob Lowe.
Am I the only one who's noticed this?
So yeah, that's all I've got. Is anyone else finding it hard to focus this time of year?

Weather Alert!!

For the last two days everyone has been readying themselves. It's on all the newscasts, and it's what everyone is talking about.

It is going to snow! In Northwest Indiana! In December!

I know, it's amazing. Every year people get all aflutter. Like it doesn't snow the same time every year. They're always surprised. And can't possibly remember what it's like to drive in that snow. I'm always stuck behind the one person who is braking constantly while others are flying by at 90 mph like there's no reason to slow down.

What does snow mean to me? It means that I have to get up extra early in the mornings. Something I'm not a fan of as sleeping is my #1 hobby. Also? With this snow comes frigid temps. The temperature tomorrow is supposed to be 0. That's not even a degree. It's like the anti degree. With the windchill it will be negative degrees.

That means I'm going to have to dig out my insulated coat and finish knitting that scarf I started this summer. I should probably go do that now.

Witchy Tendencies

Have I mentioned before that I'm a witch?

Because apparently I am.

We have a girl at work who was pregnant and due on Nov 30th. I've been taking this new migraine medication and it is giving me whacked, vivid dreams. So on the 22nd I had this dream that my co-worker was sleeping over at my house. Cuz sure, that could happen. In the middle of the night she wakes me up claiming to have wet the bed. I went into the room and pulled back the blankets and felt the sheets (which were bright blue jersey material by the way, I know crazy vivid). I told her that no, she didn't wet the bed her water broke. I then said that I'd drive her to the hospital, but first we'd have to call work to tell them I'd be late. Next thing I know we're walking down this alley with a tall wooden fence to a car I don't recognize and I drive her to the hospital. Crazy, right?

I went in to work the next morning convinced that she was going to have her baby. Everyone was like " Sure Sarah" and rolling their eyes. Later that day as I was doing my 11am rounds, my boss called me to tell me that she had gone into labor.
How awesome is that?

Unfortunately, now I'm nervous that all of my wacky dreams are going to come true. Like the one where Spiderman was cheating on me with a threesome that I walked into. I was mad at him all day for that one. He thinks I'm losing my mind. He may be right.

Santa and His Pissed Off Elf

This is the picture on my Christmas Card this year:
If this doesn't put me in the Holiday Spirit I don't know what will!

In Need of Some Holiday Cheer

I can't believe it's December 1st. What the heck? Where did the year go? Between my trip to the Bahamas and the virus of death (still have that wonderful cough btw) October was a blur. November was spent trying to catch up and working my behind off. And now it's December. And the Christmas season. I usually love Christmas. It's my most favoritest of the non-candy holidays.

On December first, I usually have all my Christmas cards addressed and mailed. By now I am usually almost done with my Christmas shopping or at least have ideas as to what I'm getting everyone.

This year?

I got nothin'.

I have exactly two presents purchased. I'm completely uninspired. I don't know if it's the fact that money's tight this year, or that Spiderman will probably lose his job any day now, but I'm just not feeling it this year. I've been wandering aimlessly around stores looking for ideas but coming up short.

This year?

I feel like hibernating.

Pulling on my warm flannel Little-house-on-the-prairie nightgown and reading/sleeping/hiding all winter long. I'm sure once things get rolling the spirit will catch on. But right now? Not so much.

What do you do to get in the Holiday Spirit?
