I love snow, but it's frustrating when you get it and then within a few hours it's melted away. Nevermind that it is deceiving winter LOL but then I have to deal with the kids crying about wanting to go play outside and there is no snow left.....like I have a say in that. Hey snow angels....quit slacking on the job!!! Think that will do it???

Well anyway, I've been fighting a cold this past week, it's one of those that linger and tease you, one day you feel like you're sick and then the next it's like nothing happened.

Last night I went to bed and my voice was all but gone, just this little croak left, got up today with my nose congested, the same "sexy hoarse" voice *snort* (that's what I tell myself to feel better lol), and a killer of a headache.
I think that all the stress my hubby and I have been under lately, doesn't help either.

I am again going to ask you all for your prayers, this time for my dad. I talked to him on the phone yesterday and apparently he has 2 clogged up arteries, seems that he needs to go in for an Angioplasty. I know it's not as serious as a bypass, but anything to do with the heart, really freaks me out, and then of course being so far from home doesn't help matters either. So please if you could add him to your prayer list, I would be forever thankful.

I wanted to let you all know that I'm going to be removing my blogroll on the sidebar, I'm having a hard time updating it and trying to log into it PERIOD. So I'm going to just add everyone to my bloglines and delete my blogroll, much easier that way. Besides, everytime one of you updates it lets me know and it's easier than playing "ten guesses" with the blogroll menu. I thought I had it set up right but I guess I'm just not too dumb for the Blogroll people...

Last night I watched The Bachelor Rome and I'm just, I don't know, I'm a little confused I would say??? I honestly thought he was going to pick Sadie and then he went with Jen, and it was one of those What the Heck kind of moments for me. I guess I don't have the knack for predicting Reality Shows, either. Some people seem to hit the nail on the head everytime, they predict something and it really happens.

So I'm sitting here and I've got the shivers and the sniffles, I honestly feel a fever coming on. You know when your body starts aching and then you are freezing cold even though it's burning up in the house?? That is how I'm feeling right now, just knowing that I have to drive to school later to get Jasmine is making me want to run and hide under the covers. Hubby is working swing shift which means he goes in at 3pm, so I can't ask him to go and get her.
Lord give me strength to get through today and strength to fight this cold off as soon as possible.

I can't believe that Christmas is practically just around the corner, I have bought absolutely nothing for anyone, I'm usually one of those last week shoppers, I find I am happier getting all the gifts JUST before Christmas Eve, guess I'm a sucker for punishment.
I do have the lists semi started, and of course the kids have been handing me their own, these long long long lists of toys and then some "horses" thrown in. Yeah, don't you know that a horse would be a perfect addition to the family?

As much as I wish I could stay and chat longer, I'm really really not feeling very well, think I'm going to try and lay down for a bit before I have to get Jasmine. If there's one thing I hate doing is driving when I'm running a fever or feeling cruddy. Wish me luck.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

I'm so sorry your feeling bad. It's not fun I know. I will pray for your dad.....and I will pray for you too.
Hope things get better for you soon.

Morning Glory said...

I'm sooo sorry your cold is just dragging you around like this. That's so frustrating.

Prayers for your dad, too.

I'm so NOT ready for Christmas. I haven't done any shopping at all, but I rarely do that too far ahead. After Saturday, the Christmas stuff comes out and I'll really get in the spirit of it then.

Susanne said...

Praying for both you and your dad!

I took my blogroll off too, it was just getting way too big and taking up the whole sidebar. If I ever figure out how to do one of those flooble collapsible things I might put it back up.

I'm so not on top of things with Christmas either. And I have one child with a Christmas day birthday to boot!

Barb said...

Of course I'll say a prayer for your dad. Even if it's considered simple, to you and him it's not and it wouldn't be to me either.

Boy, I'm just now recovering from exactly what you're describing. I know how hard it is to keep going. I feel like I just lost a week somewhere and Thanksgiving accidentally happened in the middle of it all. I took cold medication the first few days and Mucinex when it settled in my chest. Today's the first day in over a week I woke up feeling almost as good as new. I hope you get over it soon.

And thank you! Thank goodness I'm not the only one who hasn't even started shopping yet. You made me feel a lot better. :-)

At least you have it cold enough to snow. I'm in Michigan.... MICHIGAN and it has been 60 for about a week. What is WITH that?

I was hoping he'd pick Sadie too -- I thought she was more classy than Jen. I hate to say it -- but with Jen he probably will get a live in l*ver. With Sadie he really would have had a wife. It's sad. She took it well though and I am sure she'll find someone. Jen and the Prince I give 3 months! lol

I hope you are feeling better, I truly do! My daughter and I have had headaches, sore throats, and coughs for the past several days. No fun!

And I will most certainly be praying for your dad. Heart things are scary! But just remember that angioplasties are done routinely and he will be much better afterwards!


Michelle said...

Of course I will keep your dad in my prayers! I can imagine how hard this is to be so far apart during such a stressful time!

Hope you're feeling better!

momrn2 said...

Praying even now for both you and your dad.

If it helps you feel any better... I've not started any shopping either. Maybe I am still in denial that Christmas is only a mere few weeks away? *sigh*...:-)

Kelli said...

I will keep your Dad in my prayers for sure. And you too, I hope you are feeling much better tomorrow. I have purchased 2 presents so far. Don't worry, we have lots of time!

Mrs Blythe said...

Poor Sandra, you wrap up warm and get some rest! I'll be praying for your Dad. Hugs

Beck said...

Poor you! Maybe you should go to the doctor and make sure that you don't need antibiotics... your dad is in my prayers.
Last-minute shopping DOES feel much more Christmasy!

Brony said...

Hope you feel better soon. I can't image doing my shopping last minute. I am too anual for that.

I am stressing because I haven't started my cards yet.

Your dad will be added to my prayers.

Mrs Blythe said...

Has it snowed yet? lol need to keep them snow fairies on their toes (along with the laundry fairies). Just stopped by to say I've done your card and it just needs posting, just in case you thought I'd forgotten you! Hugs :)
