It never fails…

I always seem to get sick around the holidays. Starting yesterday afternoon, my throat started getting sore, by the time I was home I had the chills, bodyaches and general lassitude (annoying, given that there is lots of cleaning and cooking to do). It's now 5:11AM, and I'm up with a dry cough, slurping back a couple of liters of water, taking some ibuprofen, and hoping that I begin to feel good enough so that I don't keep waking my poor wife up. I'm now working on paring back my holiday plans to levels that won't kill me. 🙂

Two rooms to clean, I'll let Roomba vacuum (that doesn't suck), I need to mix up the turkey brine, and get the sweet potatoes cooked and peeled. Then, I will sleep. A lot.

  1. Man, being sick for the holidays stinks. Rest up, get better and I hope you feel well enough to enjoy some downtime with your family.

  2. Grap some DayQuil and NyQuil and at least you will be able to function.
    Have a good Thanksgiving.
