I'm never sick! So imagine my surprise when I contract some kind of stomach bug just in time for Christmas. It started on Christmas Eve. I ignored it of course because I never get sick. I figured it would be gone when I woke up in the morning. No such luck. I refused to let it spoil the holiday and still enjoyed Christmas with my family. Mj and I exchanged gifts here at home before we left. He totally surprised me with Uggs. He doesn't find them that cute but he knows I do. I also got a brown leather jacket that I picked out. I didn't like it as much as I did online so it will be going back and I'll have to find another one for him to get me. I got him jammie pants, P90X2, Shakeology and a blender to go with it. He asked for the gift of exercise and I gave it to him.

We all met up at mom and dad's house where we spent the entire day. My mom cooked and Mj made his homemade bread and some gravy. I basically choked down a delicious dinner in between being wracked by stomach pains. The one plus side to the stomach bug was that half the time the thought of food was unappetizing so I didn't even want to pig out. Which is unusual for me this time of year. My mom and little sister spent all of Christmas Eve baking so there were plenty of cookies to choose from for dessert...and Ice Cream...and Apple Pie. I could only stomach one cookie and a bit of ice cream. After dessert we did our family gift exchange. My dad had me and got me some cute bright fashion scarfs and some trouser socks that were on my list. Mom got us all a few things because she can't help herself. It was a very Merry Christmas.

The day after Christmas I went to the gym. I have no idea how I made it through that hour long work out because the rest of the day was spent fighting that stomach pain which came almost like clockwork every 10-20 minutes. It really makes you appreciate your health when you feel like total crap. Tuesday Mj took an extra day off because I asked him to in my sad sick voice. I was feeling well enough to visit my friend Eb and it was nice to finally have time to see her and her new baby girl. Today I had a great pain free work out at the gym and then got my hair did. It was a beautiful sunny 77 degrees today but do you think that stopped me from wearing my new Uggs? Nope. I wore a tank top to balance them out. I'm still really enjoying my time off from work and basically don't ever want it to end.
