Being sick sucks.

Just wanted to explain why I've been a bad blogger as of late.

It all started with my sister's, ahem, allergies. See, she and her son had some allergy problems while we were visiting and I seemed to have caught the allergy bug (love ya sis!). She swore up and down that her problem was in nooooo way to blame for my current illness because-quote- it's just allergies -unquote-.
Despite the fact that she was coughing, sniffling, sneezing, etc, etc. (and yes, I realize the symptoms of a cold/allergies are similar).

(Side Note: Can I say that that way, the whole, "quote/unquote" thing? Or is it more correct to just put in the actual quotation marks= " " ? But that doesn't make sense because when I say it I mean to emphasize the quote/unquote status of the situation so it seems more correct to actually write out the words quote/unquote...hmmmm...Oh the quandaries of writing). But I digress.

So, the last few days with my family I caught a cold. Yes, a COLD. Not allergies (really, really love ya seester!). And it started on Christmas Eve and it totally blew. I still enjoyed my Christmas but I really wanted to feel awesome ya know? And what is worse than getting on a crummy old plane and traveling half a day when you feel icky and achy?

Let me break this down for you. I'm a hermit (have I already explained that?) and so, it already takes a lot to get me to want to, I dunno, come out and play with people. You know, interact. I like my time, my space, my home, my hermitness. Still, I missed my family and I was looking forward to spending the Christmas holiday with them. But nooooo...my allergies cold had to come on and then all I wanted to do was crawl in my bed, cover my head, and die. yes, I'm a baby and melodramatic about being sick. I was miserable on Christmas day.

I'm just starting to emerge from my cocoon of comfort after hiding away and dying for the past week and half (I know, you're saying to yourself, "Hey, it was just allergies a cold, get over it" but, have I previously mentioned how melodramatic I am?)

Really, I shouldn't whine complain. I had a pretty good Christmas besides the cold I caught. But that is why I haven't blogged and have been out of commission completely when I might have otherwise blogged some lovliness over Christmas, or New Years, or the likes.
Because of allergies.
