You Give Me Chills Then You Leave Me Cold

This weekend was supposed to be about baking shortbread and writing Christmas cards and finishing up our Christmas shopping. It was supposed to be about embracing a season that historically we both struggle to enjoy.

Instead it was a weekend of fevers and chills, homemade chicken noodle soup, and getting out of bed only to don fresh pyjamas and clean linens before climbing right back between the sheets.

We'll find our Christmas spirit, I hope. Somewhere between the peppermint tea and discarded tissues.

  1. Bummer! My husband had the same thing last week. Only a bit shamefully, I was really happy to be out of town on business. Sad I couldn't take care of him, but happy I didn't catch it! I hope you both feel better soon.

  6. i'm beginning to think it's too cold to live in canada, seeing as you're always sick. the solution, obviously, is to move to DC and hang out with me. the dogs & cats can be friends!
