Hobbling Toward The Holidays
The countdown has started. Only 15 more days till Christmas. That means things that have to be mailed need to be out about now, but I have the flu.
I haven't written my Christmas cards yet. I'm hoping to tackle them tonight and get them in the mail by this weekend.
There is no wreath hanging on the door. There may not be one this year.
I did manage to sit at the computer long enough to get my shopping done. I do most of my shopping online. The gifts are arriving daily, but so far none are wrapped.
Christmas tree? I don't know. I don't feel like trimming it.
My dogs have been keeping me company as I nap and sniffle around the house. Samba is feeling pretty well, though we have to make numerous trips outside, steroids make one pee a lot. Morgan is sporting her festive plastic cone to remind her not to chew on herself and Tsar has stopped pulling the hair out of his tail, thanks to Benedryl and some soothing lotion.
We're all looking after each other until we're all well again.
Dogs don't really mind taking lots of naps and when I've had chills with my illness, I can call a bunch of them to cuddle with me on the bed. It beats a hot water bottle anytime.
We hope you don't get the flu for Christmas. Stay healthy and warm and dry and you'll be hearing from us soon.
