Good News: Jay and I are back on the mend and almost feeling “normal” again today.
Bad News: The stomach bug has run rampant amongst my family…now my brother, Mom, Dad, and grandma have it.
Turns out, my one grandma was apparently sick with it during the week and must have still had it lingering when we saw her on Thanksgiving. This bug is no joke! It completely wiped us out…I don’t think I’ve slept so much in months. Luckily, it appears to only be a 24-48 hour pain in neck…or tummy, to be exact.
Seeing as though I was cramped up in the house all day yesterday, I was craving some fresh air! So I offered to go out and pick up some bagels for breakfast. (I’m still craving nothing but carbs.)
I had a cinnamon raisin bagel, topped with some peanut butter & banana. It was incredibly delicious. I savored every.last.bite. Ahhh, to be able to enjoy food again! I’m still also downing ginger ale like it’s my job.
Even though the stomach is better, I’m still lacking in the energy department, so much of my day has been spent relaxing on the couch and watching “In The Kitchen” on QVC. There’s some really fun stuff on here…I’ve had to restrain myself from grabbing the credit card a few times.
Jay, on the other hand, has gotten back to work in the kitchen:
He was planning on doing a lot of the electrical yesterday, so we’re a little behind schedule.
My current mantra: “It will ALL be worth it when it’s finished…”
Plus, it also helps a little when we get to go buy more fun stuff!
On Friday afternoon, Jay and I set out to window shop for some appliances that we’ll be needing…well, “window shopping” turned into “actual shopping” thanks to some great deals!
We got a new over-the-stove microwave (no, it didn’t cost $749…that’s the price of the stove below)
A dishwasher(!!!!!!!) <—The most exciting appliance yet…since the “dishwasher” in this house has pretty much been ME.
And new flooring! We got an incredible deal at Lowe’s, where it was about half the price of the other flooring we had been looking at. SCORE!
Now that we have the internet turned back on in the house, I think it’s time to do a little online Christmas shopping!!
Question for the Day:
Do you like to do any online shopping??
If you have any good websites to share with great deals, feel free to share!
