I am finally starting to feel better.  On Tuesday I woke up and no longer had a fever, but I still had a horrible sore throat.  The doctor's office called me back that day to tell me that I didn't have strep or rhumatic fever, and thus it was probably "just the flu."  There's nothing "just" about the flu.  The flu sucks.  It sucked the life out of me for nearly 5 days. 

So now that the sore throat is gone I'm left to deal with this awful, thick, nearly impossible to swallow sinus drainage in the back of my throat.  I choke on it multiple times a day it's that bad.  I have to stop whatever I'm doing and make a conscious effort to funnel all of my energy into swallowing as hard as I can to get that crap to go down.  It's nasty.  And no drugs seem to be helping (at least the ones that I'm allowed to take.)  Today I had a major headache, which was a migraine for a very short period of time, but the migraine aspect of it went away fairly quickly.  The headache in general really ruined my day though and made it very hard to concentrate at work. 

But it's progress in the right direction, so I'm going to be thankful.  What I am NOT thankful for though, is the fella who was responsible for deciding which strains of the flu went into this years' vaccine.  FAIL, FELLA. Major fail. 

One of our only family photos!

In other news, our holiday stamps arrive today, so Christmas cards go out tomorrow!!! That means that on Monday of next week I will unveil the card here for everyone to see.  I absolutely adore it and am actually excited to send out Christmas cards this year, something that I have not felt in a long, long time.  I can't wait!

The other thing I can't wait for? This week to be over.  It's been one of the worst weeks for me in recent memory... I know it's cliche, but I am sooo glad it's Friday tomorrow.  I need a reset.
