Sickie talk & a fun Christmas card

I hope you have great plans for the weekend.
As for me, I am knocked on my booty kind of sick.  Chills, fever, sore throat, congestion...get the idea?  I am not going to lie, I am a little freaked out.  Hubby is gone for a bit, I am sick and I have company coming next week.  I need to clean the house, finish/start my Christmas cards, finish Christmas shopping, put up the Christmas tree and complete all of my crafty deadlines.  Did I mention I am sick, and have to do this alone...bah, lol.  Isn't that the way it always is?  At least I still have my sense of humor and wits about me, or the amount of stuff I need to complete this week could really send me over the deep end.  Somehow, it will all get done, I don't know how yet, but it will.  
The plan of the day, is to clean my craft-tastrophy I have going on, and to put the Christmas tree up, along with all of our holiday items.  Plus I need to have pictures developed from the last few days, to go into my December Daily Album (most of the pictures are of us being sick lol).  I guess I should go grocery shopping too.  That means I will have to actually look okay and go outside, gasp!  Why is it, when you are sick, the sun is like cryptonite?   Holy mamma!  I was in the car pick up line yesterday, picking up my son from school (and you all know how slow those lines move).  The sun was blaring on me and I thought my head was going to explode.  So, I am a little scared to go out into it.
Right now, I am downstairs in my living room, where once the sun comes out, tends to be the darkest room in the house (unless I open the curtains & blinds).  My boy is sleeping next to me, and I think I might take some cough syrup, before I hack up a lung and wake him up.  Some tea sounds grand too.
I hope you all have a great weekend and get a lot accomplished off of your to-do list.  I am going to give it a valiant try, to get a few checked off of mine.

Here is a fun Christmas card that I don't think I have shown.
(I am pretty sure it was a reject card, but I still love it)
Some of my favorite things on this one.

Materials Used:
May Arts ribbon
MME pattern paper
kraft card stock
foam tape

Oh girl, sorr you are so sick. There's been something going around my office that sounds familiar. I hope you knock it quickly. Love your card, and be sure to wear your sunglasses when you go out because I know EXACTLY what you were talking about. Hang in there, hugs :)

I can empathize-my gall bladder is acting up-dr. keeps saying the "s" word and I am saying NO! As for what has to get done-what absolutely needs doing-will happen. Don't sweat it. Do ALL the decorations have to go up? Nope. Cards? I gave up and ordered Shutterfly. Ahh-something NEW! Surprise! Check out the blog-the tao of doing! good site! oh-and www.flylady.com. Hang in there! and BREATHE! Blessings, Sharon
