I don't like Monday's. I especially don't like today knowing it's my last week of having at least a day off for a holiday for a long time. It's also getting close to tax season & that means working Saturday's. I'm worried a bit about this tax season. Last year was sooo easy & I only had to work 2 Saturday's. I think I was lucky.

Saturday we spent the day at Dean's parents house. His brother & our niece & nephew were in town. Sunday I went to lunch with my friend Vicki, her niece Simone & her son (our Godchild) Lane. I didn't take one picture either day. Epic fail.

Have I mentioned that I'm not well yet. I'm much better. I have a couple more days of my third round of antibiotics & then I have to have a CT scan of my sinuses. Yay. That's sarcasm people.

I haven't ran in 3 weeks. It seems so much longer. I haven't done any sort of working out in that amount of time. I'm supposed to run a Half Marathon on January 18th but that's not going to happen. I was thinking I'd drop down to the Quarter Marathon but I swear I don't know if I'll make that. I may have to drop to the 5K. I'm frustrated & discouraged & I'm in a funk.

I got this nifty little thing for Christmas from Dean.

My bike will fit on it & I can ride it inside. I've been wanting one for awhile. I was very excited about it. So excited that 4 days after Christmas it's still sitting in that box in that exact same spot in the living room. Told you I'm in a funk.

The weather's been yuck. Cold & rainy, then hot & rainy, then cool & sun for a day, then warm, rainy & muggy, now cold. We have a wood burning fireplace that we never use. We decided to buy gas logs since we already have gas hookup.

Isn't it pretty? They were installed the day after Christmas & it hasn't been cold enough to turn it on since.

Some good news is that our office is closing at 1:00 tomorrow to give everyone time to get where they're going to watch the LSU game.  That was unexpected so it was a nice surprise.

I have a list about a mile long of lots of things I want to get done around the house in 2015. I'm sure they won't get done though. I used to be willing to do things ourselves but I'm over that. The majority of the time whatever it is I do doesn't turn out like I envision. At this point I want to just hire someone to do everything which is why I'm pretty sure it won't get done.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!



  1. Traci,

    I can really tell that this illness has you down. Of course not running or being active must have you out of sorts, too. Keep your chin up, you will bounce back and be doing marathons sooner than you think! I admire you for plugging along with work when you are feeling so lousy.

    We have a ton of projects coming up, too. My hubby is not handy at all and he also does not like reaching for his wallet either so I have to really push to get things done. Oh well, you just have to chip away at it the best you can.

    No plans here for New Years Eve. Hope you feel up to whatever comes your way.

    Sending a healing hug!

  2. Oh honey, you are in a funk! I hope it goes away soon and you can get back on track. Not feeling well does not help, I know. I hope the new year will bring you health and happiness and many blessings. XO, Pinky

  3. I'm sorry you still aren't feeling well....everyone I know is sick!!!!! I hope you feel like your old self again VERY soon :o)
    Wishing you a very Happy New Year!!!
