Well, I felt so terrible yesterday that I took my accrued overtime, went home early and slept for two hours. I have given myself a pass to do the big housekeeping jobs the week I have off after Christmas. The Governor did something uncharacteristically nice and gave state employees Friday off, so I’ll have a day to rest. Here is a tentative Event schedule:
- Friday: MIL’s birthday. Dinner and movie- The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Gift is ready- just need to pick up a card.
- Saturday: Christmas Eve party in Tampa. Every year we hope to go and ever do. I really, really would like to make it this year, if my body will let me.
- Sunday: Christmas Day dinner at 1 pm. Christmas cookie-party afterward at a friend’s.
I strongly suspect that I will not be able to do all four, so at a minimum it will be Friday and Sunday with family and a day to rest in-between.
On top of all this, one of hubby’s co-workers is in the hospital and he’d like to visit Friday. I’d like to come, but hospitals are problematic for me at best. If I felt well I’d risk it, but I’m so run down I think catching a bug is almost inevitable (if I haven’t already caught something as evidenced by yesterday’s “nap or die” situation).
To compensate, I have been listening to Christmas music online at work, which is pretty awesome and I wish that I had thought of it sooner.
