Been so sick this weekend

You know how you get that sore throat that feels like it has a hot knife sticking in it and the golf balls you can't quite swallow your water around. The accompanying fever is a delightful way to stay cozy and warm during the winter as well, until you get the accompanying chills. Yeah, you probably get the picture, and to boot I basically can't talk, my voice is gone. The nose is running constantly and the coughing, yikes that makes the throat hurt even more!
Needless to say I am a little grumpy, and Dave has been sick too, and it feels like it is a competition to see who is feeling the most awful (it is me, really!)
There was so much that I was hoping to get done this last week, and I am feeling so awful that it isn't getting done, and some of the things I wanted to try to do probably won't get done.
I know that I have to let go of things and get over it, but I am really struggling with Dave at the moment, and it makes me even grumpier when we aren't on the same page.

The view out of our backyard of the foothills to the south of the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon.

Pictures like these remind me that it is always beautiful after a big storm, and I hope that is the case with Dave and I, we are in the middle of a big storm, and I need something good to come of it!

On a more pleasant note, we took the kids to see Narnia! What a beautiful movie, it was so enchanting and had spectacular effects. Loved the book as a kid and worried that it be a mess, but it was absolutely enthralling!
And a by the way to Rox, thanks for the post, you make me feel so loved! It is so nice to know that you are there! Actually thanks to all who have posted here! It is so pleasant to get those notes of validation and acceptance, and I really am trying to make an effort to do the same! But at least I am slow and not efficient! LOL, I think I am so not funny!
Enjoy your new week, and as Christmas nears, keep the spirit!
