Well, I guess the silver lining of getting sick as a dog on Christmas and your Birthday is that the post-holiday/omg I am older emotional bittersweet sickly feeling I usually feel in the evening of Christmas/day after--well, you can't be bothered by that when you are sick! :-)
Unfortunately, the Turkey Dinner I was longing to have after the Gallbladder of Death Thanksgiving...did not happen.
Well, the silver lining of that--we can have a Turkey Dinner with all the fixings SOON!
And...working all the holiday time--well, I DID get to spend the day after X-mas with the family (yes, Chewy was sick, Michael and I were recovering...).
So, yeah. Silver linings.
Please, New Years--lets not have any health problems! Please!
