New Year and New…Well, Something

DaGoddess @ 01:29

I should be able to come up with some exciting title, shouldn’t I? I mean, it’s already January 3rd. Here’s the thing though: I got nada.

I started getting sinusy last Saturday when I was still in San Diego. It’s hit me hard. So hard that my first New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas was spent at home. I watched fireworks in the distance for a few seconds and then crawled back into bed. Buster had made us both a great dinner, but that was it for my big celebration.

New Year’s Day was super rocky. Don’t even ask.

Yesterday was probably the second worst of it all. At least, I’m hoping that’s the case.

This sniffling, sneezing, aching, coughing thing is really getting on my nerves.

Here are the good things about being sick on a holiday though:

1) You have a great excuse to avoid people/crowds/idiocy.

2) You can eat weird stuff and nobody questions you. Bagels for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? No problem. Same with soup. And cookies you got from your mom.

3) No one looks at you oddly because of your movie or TV choices. They just assume anything weird is the result of all the OTC meds you’re taking. (I found The Proposal rather charming, thank you very much. And I only watched half of Ace Ventura.)

4) That post-holiday puffiness? You can totally blame it on being sick.

5) The tears are attributed to an absolute need for relief from congestion.

And that’s it. Oh, yeah…6) people will read your lame list, feel sorry for you, comment like crazy, and keep coming back in the hopes that you’ll post something new in the next 24 hours. (You will, right?)

Seriously, thank you all for helping me get through the past year. It was a doozy. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Here’s to a fantastic and successful 2010 for all of us!


  1. Ugh! Feel better!!! :hug:

    If mine doesn’t clear waaaay up next week I’m going to break down and go to urgent care…

  3. Ok, now I want to have been sick over the holidays. I think that makes me officially weird. (Except the TV part, yuck, nothing would make me do that.)

  4. I was sick the night before Thanksgiving and had to skip the family get-together. I totally relate! Hope you’re feeling better a few more days out.
