Stick a fork in me...I'm DONE!
Today we hosted the last of our 5 Christmases. It was great having everyone at our house but I am just wiped out from the festivities. It doesn't help that Friday morning I woke up with my eye hurting and looking funny. I started doing a bunch of stuff to help it heal. No way was I going to the ER during Christmas Eve or day. I thought it must just be a viral infection in my eye and it will go away by Monday. Well last night my body started having really weird aches and pains. I decided that this morning I would run to the doctor as a walk-in. She said I have pink eye. UGH. She thinks it is viral but it could be bacteria so she gave me a script for an antibiotic but said I didn't need to take it until Wednesday/Thursday. I guess if it is viral it will clear up on its own but if it is bacterial it will need the antibiotic. I appreciate that this doctor didn't tell me I had to take the antibiotic right away, since I didn't get to see my normal doctor I always get nervous. I can tell it is healing. I just have to leave it alone which is hard because it itches SO much. No worries I wash my eyes if I even touch near my eye. I'm that paranoid. And no one else in my family has gotten it and it hasn't spread to my other eye so I think I have done a good job containing it! So with not feeling the greatest and then having 3 Christmases back to back on the 24, 25 and 26 I'm pretty much toast. I decided that I should take a soak to unwind. It was so nice to lay in a bath tub that NO ONE else other than my family members have ever used. And bonus, Jeff washed my new pj's he bought me and changed the bedding in our bed, like I had asked him to do this morning while I was at the doctors. I had been waking in the night and my eye was crusty and I just wanted fresh sheets. I feel so comfy cozy in my bed right now. Oh I forget to mention I got some really great gifts this year. My man can listen and remember! He bought me new pjs, a precious moments Christmas ornament (I think I have about 15 now?), a pillow type thing to use in bed to sit up so that I don't smash my pillow and a seat to use on bleachers. I am the most excited about that gift because I have many years left in me to be sitting at games watching and cheering my kids on and I would like to do it comfortably! And the kids got me some sweat pants and a puffy vest. I got an added bonus when I went to my in-laws, my mom-in-law got a robe but didn't want it. I had actually be thinking of getting one since GG had gotten hers on the 17th. She had been wearing it around the house to stay warm and she just looked super cozy in it. I totally scored when she said I could have it. That was my Christmas of 2011. Hoping that 2012 is a great year for us and you!
