So Much For Happy New Year

Right now I'm supposed to be finishing a fabulous dinner of Japanese food and then heading off to meet up with friends to ring in 2010. So why am I sitting here blogging? My sweetheart has the flu; headache, cough, sore throat, chills, fever-yeah, definitely the flu. She had to go to work for a few hours this morning and called to say her throat was sore and she had a terrible headache. She insisted we were still going to dinner at least. I knew better and cancelled our reservation. By the time she walked in the door she had the chills so bad I immediately put her in bed under the heating blanket.

  • warm tea
  • kleenex
  • throat drops
  • ibuprofen
  • one old dog for comfort and cuddling
I'll be sleeping on the couch tonight. I wanted a stomach bug, not the flu.
It's cold but clear here in Minnesota tonight. At least I have a terrific view of the blue moon and can enjoy the Three Stooges marathon on AMC. I also have a bottle of champange so the dogs and I can toast at midnight.
Happy New Year to everyone!

Feel better A! You are a sweetheart for taking such good care of her. The pup for cuddling is my favorite part!

Quiet celebration here. Steak and lobster and some great wine.

I hope 2010 is your best year ever!

Yikes!!! Something is going on! Mic and I were at a party and suddenly she broke out into a clammy gross cold sweat, and a horrible headache quickly came after that. Now she is in bed shivering, and here I sit....

Oh well- hopefully our sick spouses will recover quickly!

Happy new year!

Thank you for following my blog. I'm going to do the same. Sickness sucks! I'm currently experiencing post nasal drip. It's gross. I'm making noises with my throat I thought were never possible.

I was looking through your blog and I love your dogs! They are so cute!

Happy New Year to you both!

Why haven't I been reading you? I think I thought I was but no, I have not been. Will be now, though.
