I've Been a Bad Blogger

I'm so sorry that I haven't been keeping this blog up lately. It's been busy around here.

First, let me say that the unwanted house guest is gone. He moved out on Dec 11th. So he was with us for 2 months and 1 day.

I managed to get the tree up the weekend after he left and I just never really got in the holiday spirit. It probably had to do with the residual hate in my heart.

Paul arrived on Dec 21st and I was so glad to see him again. Unfortunately he has since gone back to Pensacola, FL and I probably won't get to see him again until he is done with his year in Diego Garcia, which wont even start until February.

Henry is doing well with his online schooling through Connections Academy. We are still struggling with Math, but I'm seeing definite improvement.

Since Christmas I have mostly been in bed with a very stubborn case of bronchitis. I have been on antibiotics, codeine cough syrup and an inhaler for a week now and still have a cough. I missed work all week and I hope to be able to go back for my next scheduled shift. I'm really just worn out.

Whatever that germ is that causes this cough and cold is a booger bear. I have the same thing and I KNOW I am going to have to go to the doctor - I've been putting it off for three weeks.

Glad your 'guest' is gone. That has to be a relief. And I am also glad that Henry's schooling is going well.

Happy New Year. I hope that you are feeling better soon!

I'm sorry that it effected your Christmas with your family.

You sure have a lot of people come to your door, I wonder why that is?

I'm glad being home with you is going well for Henry. I certainly would never trade the direction we took with our girls on that. The math will come, sometimes it comes through something apart from the formal work.

I wished you would blog more I enjoy hearing about you and Henry.

Get well soon!

I'm so sorry you've been sick. That's just NO fun at all! It seems like a LOT of people have been hit this Christmas time.

I hope you heal quickly and get back into the routine of things!!!

I am sorry you have been sick...are you sure you weren't just sick and tired and that led to stress which led to sickness?
I was off my feet for awhile with a hurting foot but I think I am up and running again!
Happy New Year to you...stay with us...we have missed you!

I'm sure the stress had a lot to do with it, either directly or indirectly. I had quit smoking last November (07) and then with the stress of our visitor (both he and my husband smoke) I started smoking again. I should have known... i always did get bronchitis in the winter when I smoked. The good news is that I have quit again and I will definitely remember this horrible bout of bronchitis next time I think about lighting up!!!

Hi! Just wanted to let you know that I have gone private for a short time. It seems that my blog was HACKED. I am not sending out invites until I know exactly what to do. Just wanted to let you know that you are not being excluded from Dust Bunny Hostage :) "I'll be back!"
