Nasty night.....

When I finished up my workday today I knew I didn’t have to be back until January 7 and the thought of that made me tingle with happiness. Not that I hate my part time job or anything, because I don’t…..but I am just worn out and desperately need the rest. I think I’m close to having pneumonia to tell the truth. The holidays have just about done this old girl in. LOL I need a hot bath and a warm bed for several days in a row then I should be right as rain.

Speaking of that….weather-wise, tonight is one of the most miserable nights I’ve seen in a long while. It was nearly dark by 4 pm, 34 degrees and raining hard. By 5 pm, 33 degrees, the rain changed to sleet and it was dark. The wind was brisk and bitter on top of that. I have a rough time driving at night and the rain/sleet just made it all the worse. I was so happy to reach my driveway and pull into the garage and into safety.

Needless to say my jammies were on in record time, a stiff drink in my hand and I had my butt parked in front of the computer to check on my mail and blog comments. I have no reason to leave this house for a week and I hope nothing comes up that makes me have to leave.

So I am going to finish my drink and then get to bed. I sure hope I feel better by tomorrow morning. I hate sounding so whiny - I don’t even feel good enough to read more of my book.

Just snuggle up in your nice cosy bed and concentrate on getting better Val. Its 106 degrees F here and I am suffering big time. I hate, hate, hate the heat.

Get better soon (((HUGS)))

Goodness Val, I know just how you feel, and I hope you don't have to leave the house for the next week either.

I hope you feel better today. Aren't jammies and drinks the best ever?

I'm so sorry you feel ill! Stay in bed! Only get out for soup and blog visits. ;)

I hear you about night driving.. if my hubby is off work, he drives me around at night. It's bad enough in the dark, but add in some rain or even worse, sleet, and I'm in a heap of trouble.

Take care of yourself!
