My cookie dough languishes in the fridge - I languish on the recliner.

I have pneumonia, the first time in my life that I have ever had pneumonia. I hate it and it's awful. Terrible to breathe. Can't move much. Feeling a bit better after nearly a week of antibiotics with herbal support, but still quite sick. The house is a mess. Only about 1/8 of what I wanted to get done actually got done. Face it - Troll can't keep the house properly. He just can't. Going to bed now. Sorry about the late Christmas cards (if they even get out this year...), and the late packages. Got the kids done, the in-laws done, each other done - as far as presents go. Got the tree up, but the decoration storage box still sits in the middle of the room. That's going to have to do it. Christmas is almost here. It'll have to be good enough.

Merry Christmas to everyone! Say a little prayer for recovery for me and thanking you in advance for that...

I'm so sorry that this had to happen to you now...or anytime!
I know exactly what you're going through. I've had pneumonia more than 10 times.
Let Troll and the girls take over and just enjoy the togetherness.

I pray that you feel better soon. Pneumonia is no laughing matter. The first time I got it, at the age of 19, it darn near killed me. I ended up with a collapsed lung and lost 28 lbs. in one week.

I hope you are able to have a Merry Christmas.

Oh, my!

Having had pneumonia, I know what a misery it is. And the recovery is long too. Just when you think you're better and get on the move again, WHAM!, you've got a setback.

Take care of yourself.

And try to have a Merry Christmas!

I hope you feel better soon. I've never had pneumonia but my sister has it regularly and I know it must be painful and annoying to say the least. Happy New Year to you and your family!

Thanks so much, you guys. I am much better now, just working overtime and holiday pay to make up for the time I lost. It's been a bear of a week but it's almost over. Then we move. :-/
