Here Come the Holidays!

There are at least four houses on our street decorated for Christmas already. Michael suggested getting our tree up today, but I just wasn't up for it. Maybe tomorrow...

I am less congested today, but my voice is still pretty weak. I have my favorite substitute teacher on standby for Monday in case I don't get my voice back. There's no way I can do my job without my voice. Can you imagine?

So, we have spent the entire day on the couch once again. Michael hasn't been sleeping well, so he's spent the day in his pajamas napping on the couch. I haven't been napping, but I did manage to complete Michael's Social Security Disability application. We hope he won't need to go on long-term disability, but we'd rather be safe than sorry. His type and stage of cancer are "fast-tracked" for SSDI, but even so there's a five-month waiting period before benefits kick in.

So, perhaps tomorrow I will start feeling human again and we can deck the halls, or get our Christmas cards ready to mail, or hang up the outdoor lights, or make some shopping lists, or...

You get the idea!

So sorry you've been sick on your vacation. Maybe you'll feel better tomorrow. Just try to relax and enjoy the time on the couch!

It's amazing how fast the holiday decor goes up in the neighborhoods! We did get our tree up today but I wasn't quite ready for it.
Hope you're feeling better soon!!

Enjoy decorating! Do a little at a time until you feel up to it.
Have a healthy week!

Hope you feel better really soon. It hard to be a teacher with no voice take good care of yourself.

I get that not quite ready feeling, I'm the same I think related to interview/employment and all the changes. Hope tomorrow is a Christmassy day!

I hope you are feeling better! We have our decorations up indoors and out, minus the tree because that is an ORDEAL complete with trekking through the woods and arguing and bonding and being very cold. Next Saturday maybe!
